No one in T2 will pose a threat to BG. BG belongs in T1, no doubt.

I wouldn't be so sure. Blackgate has a massive PVE population, so the event will definitely throw a wrench in the works. It could prove difficult to get people into WvW. Obviously this affects all servers, but some less than others. I've never played against SoR, and I'm pretty sure IoJ has gone through some changes since we last fought, so calling it before we see weekend turnout is premature.

The Gap created by fall of #1 and #4 WvWvW servers (HoD and ET) is yet to be filled consistently. While SBI and JQ may claim to be contenders for permanent #1 rank, #3 and #4 places still need takers. IoJ was supposed to be the next Tier 1 server, they got Team Legacy and other guilds transferring over to them. But apparantly things did not go as planned for them and Tier 3 may be a possibility. Blackgate was termed as next Tier 1 server by a person from Isle of Janthir and some other people, none of whom belonged to core guilds of Blackgate. Blackgate did stay in Tier 1 for 3 weeks and that achievement cannot be taken away from them. They will be going back to Tier 2 but I am sure they will be back in Tier 1 soon. Sea of Sorrows is coming to Tier 1 this week. While they have beyond doubt one of the best NA coverage in game, we will see how they hold in other timezones.

2 factors will surely influence the upcoming matches:

1. WvWvW oriented guilds moving to other games.
2. Current mass transfer opportunity due to all servers being open to transfers (All NA/EU servers are high, none is full). This can result in your server getting guilds to cover your weaker timezones or your server gets players who make your primetime queue longer. Both scenarios have different influencr on your WvWvW result.

You guys are going to need to come up with a name for the new saga of tier one.

Maybe the Oceanic wars? It seems that all 3 servers got really strong oceanic coverage, and is the reason they are in Tier1.

I still like one of the old thread titles for T1 myself.  The Tier of Tears.  It has been a great match so far and I have really enjoyed fighting both servers.

I can tell you this:

They don't fight nearly as well as you guys do. The new PvE stuff will drain WvW fer sure. BUT, your core combatants will do just fine, especially against weakened servers. Obviously, anything can happen, but with IoJ slipping further off the map, SoS coming to see us for a beating, that leaves you versus SoR. You'll do very well. If you don't let me know and I'll bring my one man army over there to help. lol

Good luck. You guys rock.

LoD posted they are going to play the new DF .... which means they will likely be back after what will be a max 90 day run for DF ... if the rush lasts that long.  That one will fail faster than DF 1 did ...

Personally, I would rather munch on the ass of a dead giraffe then give Taso and AV money for more lies and pie in the sky propaganda. Calling it now, they'll miss 12/12/12 as well.

I hope they'll find the fun they look for there. They were a notable presence on SBI WvW - nothing more boosting for troops morale then seeing one of those big black hammer-wielding cats with a skull painted on their back :)  I'm grateful for what they brought to us so far and I can totally understand looking for some new game enjoyment - that's what gaming is about. Should they be back, they will be welcome for sure.

I do not think SBI will fall in standings because of that - and even if it happens, no big deal. It's not like they owe something to us or the server. They were here to have fun, just like all of us.

My guess is if some sort of GvG comes out they will be back.

From what I know, at least two transferred to SBI, one quit the game, and one disbanded.

Oh the drama. SBI having points lead in SEA / OCE primetime. The big question you guys should ask yourself is, why you keep recruiting for this timeslot? :zzz:

Swapping server in order to make a statement like that, you're just too big of a boss for our server. Moving was indeed the best thing for you to do. Please, never come back...

My bad. I removed the ignore, as I found myself clicking "View it anyway?" since I can't seem to look away from a train wreck.
