HB started our NA recruitment 1 month ago aswel, and are out there in NA primetime each night. Most of our NA players are eastcoast  and starts to log on when our EU logs off. That gives us a good 8-9 hours of wvw each day ( more during the weekends )

But ya for NA WvW, I´d say take a look at LotD, KnT, ICoA, EA or HB.

I wish I can join in the fun but as of now Blackgate Servers are full.... it was my primary server back in BWE. So Im stuck in a bad server... boring and unactive guild, I'll wait til there is an opening then I'll join the fight (NA).

Esoteric.5490 is my account name. Feel free to add me in game. We would love to have another active WvWer on board!


In other news, we are still in need of guilds looking specifically for competitive WvW, specifically in our timeslots from 2am-6pm Server time and 2pm-6pm Server Time. The first is after our West Coast NA coverage goes to sleep and before our Oceanics are online and the other is before our East Coast NA is online, but after our EUs are heading to bed. If any guilds could fill these sections, no matter what your numbers, it could make a world of difference.

We have queues that last a couple minutes at the most on the weekends and no queue most of the time during the week. There are certain times during prime time where we can fill maps, but we could make great use of players in all time zones as we are a far cry from being able to fill every map, so you will always be able to get into a map with your guild.

If you are a guild or player looking to transfer to a server that is competitive in WvW with a stellar community, please contact me and I can facilitate you with any information that you need. As a community, we are more than welcoming to anyone that is here to join the war effort. We are a small step away from being back in Tier 1 and really competing for the top spot, help us get there.

Just to clarify, HB is a EU guild that has recruited a bit of a NA contingent, which is primarily composed of EST players. BG as a server is a fairly weak in WvW numbers overall during the EST prime time slot (5pm to 8pm EST), as highlighted by SoR's typical daily dominance during that period.

Well, that's the plan actually. So yeah, more Oceanic/SEA and NA (EST time zone especially) players would be peachy.

They do need more oceanic though. To us it seems that we been able to cover 2 maps only in oceanic timezone and there is always be the time where SoR/IoJ zergs start to overwhelming us (usually early oceanic time zone) quite badly. We had been losing many keeps/forts during oceanic time (SoR can flip our map within 15-20min) so definitely we need more!

SoR flipping your map during during oceanic time? Well that is new. Work has caused me to miss the oceanic time zone for the last week but the weeks before SoR would be lucky to hold our own bl. We only barely have enough players to have a presence on two maps and 80% of the time we are defending. Our home garrison getting flipped 2-3 times was pretty normal.

I would say it's pre oceanic time (not sure how u define peak oceanic time) im talking about. Like 18.00-21.00 GMT+7. Always got overrun by SoR.

Are you playing the same match up as me? Black gate bl is nearly always green or red at that time, the most blue I have seen is when some sor ninja bluebriar and it doesn't last long.

Blackgate is listed as Very High right now.

If any guilds are still looking for T2 and with our newer transfers (just had a guild move over from EU servers) possibly T1 action without queue times this is a good move.

Unless my time zones are way off during that time period you stated the most SoR had on bg bl today was a few camps.

Because BG has secured the win and why do you keep trying to knock BGs recruitment thread?

Might have something to do with blackgate thinking they need more ocenanics even thou they regularly steamroll SoR bl during that time but whatever i'll leave your thread alone, was just stating my opinion on the matter didn't expect someone to come in and tell me that sor flips the whole of bg bl.

The goal here is winning Tier 1. SoR has noticeably weak Oceanic coverage. If that was the standard that we set for ourselves, how would we ever be expected to improve? Also, IoJ regularly has a large Oceanic presence. If we can't consistently match or outperform them without an incredible turnout from our Oceanic guilds, Tier 1 will never again be a reality. Sure, if SoR has next to no one online, they won't own anything, even against 30 people in a map, but just because you are lacking coverage does not mean that is the standard that we should hold for ourselves. If you need Oceanics, I believe that SoR has its own recruiting thread. Until a server is winning Tier 1, every server needs coverage holes filled in some way in a 24/7 format.

Well actually u're right. It was IoJ that got stronger pre Oceanic (around 8pm GMT+7). (Damn the ND zerg) But SoR got a lot stronger after Oceanic time. (Like 0am GMT+7)

Still during Oceanic/NA there is no queue, so plenty of space for you NA/Oceanic guilds to join us!

We've picked up a couple of really spectacular oceanic guilds and a small NA guild but still have room for hundreds.

most nights NA time we still have empty maps.  

Whether your guild is 5 strong, 50 strong, or 500 -- we have room for you to come over and play with no queues!  that goes for NA, oceanic, and Euro!

Blackgate also has a lot of smaller skirmishing guilds if that is more your play style.  We like to take on a few more than us when we can!

Im on 17 days of leave, came back and Blackgate still has the exact same friendly and welcoming mentality that it did when I first came over. Couldn't have chosen a better server, most dedicated WvW players you will find.
