Just watched FreeLancers Video. Pretty funny to watch.
First he talks about stomping the SoR guilds one night, and how they are gonna stomp SoS guilds the current night, then he gets ganked by a rogue. Then they take an un-upgraded tower. At some point he shows the map and they have 6 or 7 objectives. He comments on running with 80 TL. (Don't think that is a zerg tho!)
TL does pretty good at Staying in a tight Ball and running their AEs, but that isn't much of a Strategy, from what I have seen. However, they seem to get rolled in Open field, by what looks to be equal numbers. Hell if they are running 80, it would be pretty hard to run more than that.
By the end of the video, IoJ has 1 objective, lost Bay, and it was called a successful raid.
I am curious what it would take to be an unsuccessful raid......maybe SoS coming through their homeworld portal and wrecking havoc in their PvE lands?
First, the title of the video is " .. Testing new build" and if you had paid attention many TL had the outmanned buff the entire night. Why sometimes certain groups of players get it and others dont is beyond me. I know it only popped on me twice but dissapeared soon after. Id love to know the variables involved in it honestly.
Second, you cant selectively ignore that both SoR and SoS were focusing us at the keep. Were not complaining though, it happens and certainly makes battles twice as epic. I would have likely done the same if i saw the opening.
Lastly, a "successful" raid for TL and many IoJ consists of the following:
-Were laughs heard?
-Did we try something new?
-Did we add data to our spreadsheets?
-When/if we wiped, do we specifically know why?
-Did we assign our science team to research a fix?
-Did we troll a TL member?
-Did we troll Arctx?
We have a list of goals for two scenarios, when we are competitively matched and have a shot as a server to take 2nd/1st, and tge weeks when due to population issues off-hour or just general "candy corn" mentality we have to make the best of it. The latter usually involves trying new metas, meeting and establishing new relations in the server, and gathering information on what is working and not working with both us and enemies.
We are just one WvW guild in the midsts of other great names on IoJ. Sadly while i feel IoJ has the regular population, the server seems more attuned to PvE content. So while there are times IoJ WvW is a ghost town it doesnt mean we give up WvW and improving efficiency.
Thats why you see on the video how excited we get when we see Tsym or Atac. They bring fresh and interesting new tactics to the scene that we dont see from others often. Its a nice fresh change from the zerg guilds.
Nuff rambling. More killing.
Btw Arctx is recruiting for Lost Shores. His women aernt as hot as TLs but theyre gamer girls nontheless
