we are being double teamed
Even so you would be fielding more players than both BG and JQ in their SEA/OC prime-time combined
(/making-a-joke). Personally I think some of you guys need to realize that this is a game, and if some players don't find it "fun" they will simply not log in altogether - the guilds that are still active in WvW right now on BG are not so much concerned about winning right now but to participate in some great fights against massive odds.
I have an inkling that this has been a consistent issue on all servers to a degree (I remember on ET that this was very similar); if players were "winning" in overall score then we would get a significant presence online (i.e. T2). It must also be noted that there was a flip-side to this, as soon as we started to go into second place or face some serious competition the casual players logged off and made it look like we had thrown the match. The same thing is happening now, with the additional issues coming from other games coming out (Dishonoured, Halo 4, PS2), university exams, RL and natural attrition due to the PvE (I include PvX here) guilds not seeing much progression in the game so as a result they just don't log in.
I have many friends from the ex-AA who have moved on to other games as a result of some of the oceanic s becoming gaming communities (which is the death nell for a solid in-game presence). The nature of PvX guilds are that they will likely be more casual in their outlook, and in doing so maybe log in to WvW once or twice a week and if they are losing they generally lack the drive to make a difference.
In reality I have only seen Noc, Urge, Thai, DiE, TEAM, KnT and ELTE not give up the fight. But even though we won't win, (pfft) we will still see you guys on the borderlands and EB.
