It seems the addition of Yak's Bend was just what this tier needed to balance the strengths of TC and CD.

I think this is the kind of matchup we've been waiting for.  I mentioned it last week here too IIRC...

  But it'll only work if CD seriously steps up their presence in the other Borderlands.  For far too long we've only attempted to have an impact in Home and EB and that needs to change this week.

Spoke too soon...  just when ya think ya know CD:

Woo, we're a factor in this again!


And Yaks... I can't believe how hungry they are for it.  Half their force is so squishy we thought they were running mostly level  5's but that hasn't stopped 'em!  Bless their hungry hungry little hearts

No kidding, every time I go in there, there is at least 10 people camping different areas of the puzzle from CD.

Noticed a topic on the officials that was later deleted of course... concerning one presumed (but highly suspected to be a fraudulent troll) TC commander trying to barter a deal to ally with YB just to quote: "knock CD out of it early".  I thought it was laughable....  Considering most of the time we have like half the population of either server in this tier.

Yeah that's YB ignoring TC just to spawn camp us ...
I really hope this doesn't become the status quo this week.

Not only is CD fighting off a multi-server alliance, but apparently those servers were wise to form such an alliance since these images suggest that it's almost necessary if they want to keep us in 3rd place.

*SNIP*


...really gonna put a damper on the entire week

At this point we were also in second place, although losing ground kinda quickly.  I think we are doing well, I know NAGA is having a ton of fun during the night attacking camps and towers, then going 10v20 against packs of scary TC and YB peeps.  I'm enjoying a good time in a matchup that we are all somewhat balanced for. Finally.  It'll be interesting to see how our coverage does during the week.

Good times, went on a huge Bender this weekend. :)

TC and YB borderlands are being cleared of invaders at the end of the weekend, so it will be interesting to see who can make the most progress over the week.

Many good plays by the YB folks in their borderlands over the weekend and always enjoy seeing the roaming CD hit squads causing pain and suffering. Levelling in WvW = win.

It's difficult not to be amused when CD is getting destroyed on ebg while maintaining their little hold over jump puzzle. Must be important to win at something ;)

Oh c'mon, the fact that a few YB have been spawn camping and attacking CD is hardly evidence of a 'multi-server alliance'.  I can assure you that TC has been giving YB at least three times as much attention as CD since CD started falling behind (well, at least during my playtimes anyway - I'm not on during NA Prime.)  Now, I'm sure Yak's have probably been fighting for second place a little since our lead over them really opened up but as whoever comes third will almost certainly be dropping to T4 based on the current scores you can't really blame them for that.  

Actually, even your own map shows that TC have been taking slightly more from YB than CD...

That's not what the argument is. It's the fact that CD is constantly bitching about being able to hold other stuff when they've got a ton of people camping the puzzle.

I don't really get your proof. YB has knocked everyone off our borderlands (TC and CD). We've been knocked off of TC borderlands. We weren't knocked off CD. Why would we give up free shit and go to TC when we have nothing there. Not only that, you are the only server on TC borderlands. Why would TC come to our BL? They would want to apply pressure on your guys homefront so that some of CD on TCBL feels inclined to come home.

The game flows where it flows. Sometimes we are on CD borderlands and you notice it. Sometimes we are on TC borderlands, and its not as noticed by CD. There have been times where YB feels like we are getting double teamed, and I'm sure TC feels the same way. You can't take a couple snapshots and assume collusion or a multi-server alliance. I could just as easily take a few screenshots myself of different scenarios where YB is getting double teamed.

YB graciously giving TC lots of space to deny us any supply while we tried to march on TC.

Only a portion of their surprisingly robust late night zerg that sabotaged us the whole way.

As soon as we finally got our Keep back, every TC who was on EB zerged in took it back instantly and then carefully tucked in front of YB's territory to focus our tower down:



Meanwhile YB's Border hasn't been touched by TC in days now, so YB was busy taking over our BL again:

These aren't even good fights anymore.  Was looking forward to this matchup for weeks, only to see these 2 servers ganging up on the crippled kid in the special olympics tier.  It's kinda funny tho atleast, right? ... I really hope it is.

I'm confused by what you are supposedly proving here.  People in WVW taking supply camps??!?!?!?! THOSE BASTARDS!

And both those supply camps effect TC holdings also.

Quote





So you have a video showing one group seemingly defending their tower and then you run to another group attacking a completely separate tower... It would be one thing if your video showed those two forces meeting and just running past each other, but really it just shows you running from one zerg into another and getting roflstomped.  There's nothing there to indicate they are working together.

I'm beginning to think you are just hoping that someone will buy this crap and believe you are actually fighting 2v1 and holding your own enough to stay in the game.

I play on TC and spent the weekend in Yak's BL.  You are full of crap.

You're a joke. Just like anyone who bleats about "alliances". We really can't have a week of good fighting in a 1v1v1 setting without someone barking about unfair 2v1s, can we? I just came from TC pushing YB all the way back to their keep and coming this close to taking overlook on EBG while leaving CD, who have their entire third and half of yak's territory, untouched. Until CD tried to zerg our keep. Oh noes, CD YB alliance! To the forums!

Musta been really lonely considering there's no images anywhere of you holding anything noticeable. IE: your opinion doesn't refute this evidence and no one even knows who you are so you're not exactly coasting on reputation here.

Don't need an extrernal reason, I've already stated several times now that CD just isn't up to it & doesn't have the population anymore.  In other words:  didn't have a real shot at this to begin with.  But shooting the messenger hasn't changed the message.  It's right there for everyone to see.

I have never seen YB occupy anything cept supply camps in TC BL, and likewise for TC in YB BL.

It's WvW, ppl target the "weaker" side for easy points. We all know that but why couldn't TC/YB just admit they have been doing it after Sat? It was supposed to be a great matchup, points were close to the hundreds even after 24hrs but all of a sudden, it's like TC/YB had some sort of agreement to keep out of each other's BL.

guess CD is that hated...
