Are you saying they lost one, or they caused someone else to lose one?

PRX was part of TA on HoD.

Exhibit A, the score at 11:45CST Sunday night in the HoDvSBIvET match: http://www.guildwars...00#entry1962597

Exhibit B, The score on Thursday at 12:30CST: http://www.guildwars...70#entry1974858

The thread got locked before the final score.

Even 40k point lead can't guarantee win the match.
Here is a matchup history record in Week 43, although have 30K gap, leader still changed in 24 hours.

SBi likely complacent. Many are still thinking this is like last weeks match-ups. ITS NOT.

Our guilds / players have to start turning up for WvW or the lead will be insurmountable. I think most don't even realize yet that SoS has good coverage and very motivated.

An hour or so ago WM came out to play and managed to claw back some ground. Good thing is we're working out how to counter some of their tactics. I'm really impressed with some of the commanders out there tonight on SoS.

at 10PM Sydney time 8PM in Seoul...

SoS  94,275  +415
SBI  61,050  +175
JQ  57,766  +105

NYS is being kind enough to help SoS win by transferring over to our server?

In the matchup between SoS, SoR, and CD, SoS had a large lead, then a large deficit, then a decent lead to win.  A lot of guilds came over from Dragonbrand, and there we saw a 30k lead over Blackgate disappear in a few hours.  People in SoS know that a 30k lead is nothing.

For me, I've only been able to play a couple hours so far because I have my in-laws in town, but it's been pretty fun.  There is always something to do and some place to defend (which was not always the case in T2).

Great fighting. I'm very impressed.  Us from SoS aren't going to let you guys come back so easily. I'm halfway tempted to take days off from work just to help WvW if anything. After all something is stirring in the Sea of Sorrows!

It is absolutely naive to think we can make another comeback every week from deficit. The spread between ppt is narrowing as less people show up, grinding the new shiny fractal and are becoming complacent.

SBI and JQ are fielding less and less as the weeks goes by. Motivation is missing here, something SOS is not lacking atm.

PvE happens.  You just let it roll off your back and keep going,   win or lose its all fun for me.

And yes it is possible to overcome this deficit because we have seen hit happen before all to easily.  It is still anyones game.

SoS came in highly motivated, being that this is their grand arrival to T1.

   SBI had about the lowest turnout I have ever seen over the weekend. The new content was clearly a big attraction, and we at SBI were only able to effectively contest 1 map at a time.

  I don't think the match is lost for SBI.

  At the same time, I think it could be over by this time tomorrow if SBI has another low turnout today.

SoR was hungry.
SBI/JQ are probably tired. and pve event/thanksgiving messing things up.

MMAC isn't on JQ anymore. They were JQ's largest WvW guild. JQ is sort of underperforming w/o their coverage and in general JQ's just lacking morale as a whole.

From what we know the majority of the MMAC's commanders/old schoolers left GW2 for PS2, and those whose who staying behind transferred to SoS a few weeks back with that Emerald Council (JQ's night crew) everyone was fussing about and formed under a new name to play quietly pound on JQ and send them to T2. Some of MMAC's JQ loyalists made a new guild called AoS on JQ to try to patch the holes in the ship, but we aren't holding up so well 24/7 and are seriously short staffed as a server. I miss the old days personally, but JQ.com's politics ruined the server's morale and now those hardcore players who left are lolstomping us  from the shores of SoS. We'll probably be in Tier 2 in no time, but it will be a refreshing change to see some new faces and have JQ being competitive again in the tier it belongs in.

so TL;DR, JQ has no MMAC/EC/night presence anymore, JQ has huge holes in coverage and is probably going to finish up in Tier 2 after this match

No joke that SoS needs more Euro players for sure.  Maybe now we're winning T1 (so far) we'll get some Euro attention.  

Otherwise, score aside, we have had a huge amount of fun fighting both JQ and SbI again.  It's been a long time since we were matched up and it's exciting to see all the new guilds on all three servers fighting it out.  New tactics are being seen as well.  

Hope you guys are having as much fun on SbI and JQ as we are!

War Machine(s) have been the most challenging for me and my guild so far but we're up for it and we're loving every single encounter!

Please don't take SoS words on the board to mean you are being underestimated. Many on SoS know this match is far from over, and are expecting a rush.

Even after the week is over, we will meet again next week, and the results and participation will be much different.

Noone is underestimating JQQ of SBI. Would be foolish to do so, and after a week or two in T1, we will see how SoS turnout looks.

SoS would be more than welcoming to WM to supplement our non-NA coverage zones.

Oh please WM, do not come to SoS.  I love you guys, I love fighting killing and being killed by you but please don't come to SoS.  If you did, SoS would be unstoppable and it would cause SoS to fall apart like HoD did in the first few weeks.  It's fun for a minute winning everything but the queues and lack of competition would be horrendous.

As a commander on HoD, BG and SoS i must say SoS have impressed DiE a hell of allot. Its very much like early HoD in general population attitude and they want to be T1. PRX own but having been allied before we already knew that :) We did not jump ship lol.. PRX and DiE have always worked well together and we were asked to come to SoS weeks ago by them but decided to stay with our decision which was Blackgate.

We had fun on Blackgate but they want different things out of the game to DiE and ultimately it was not a good fit either way. SoS has the attitude we want in a server and we are very happy with the move.

Fights have been fun so far. Solid teams on all fronts and you guys really started to push us back last night. We changed up a few things and started to beat your back out of our lands in EB. I must say, well fought so far guys. Lets make the rest of the week interesting!
