Don't let your politics override what the actual scoreboard says. We used to be such a great server. I didn't like the bragging/trolling, but as far as being talented I kind of miss MMAC's presence/coverage, as well as TW and a few others who also left because of JQ.com's politics. We were 3rd (at best) before them, and 1st with them. Now w/o them we are 3rd barely and falling fast. Those are rock solid facts man. Whether they are the reason for JQ's morale boost or whatever you can't argue with the fact that JQ is not the same powerhouse w/o MMAC or all of those EC guilds who left with them.
JQ will probably end up in 5th/6th seed over the next month and I'm not speaking for a majority, but many dislike JQ.com because of them salting the earth over silly forum politics and chasing off the guilds who put up the points. Let that be a lesson to the other up and coming Tier 1 servers. Don't be like JQ and try to umbrella everyone under some authoritative "community" run website who is actually run by one kid and his guild on a power trip. No offense to them, but in all honesty no big legacy guild wants a 15 year old telling them how to play the game and then ban them from the forums when they don't comply (post I quoted), they'll leave just like TW and MMAC left. Be a real community, let everyone contribute and play, and just play the game for the sake of playing and having fun. 1st place will come naturally to those who work together.
On the bright side SoS is doing awesome right now, and it's because they are very organized and determined. I miss that on JQ :/
Well, Im going to say this honestly. No disrespect to JQ intended.
JQ was never #1. and really only #2 post HoD.
The Glicko scoring system is flawed for WvW matchups, and especially with the transfers.
SBI was #2. They got pushed down, and barely overtaken by ET. JQ was then #2 according to Glicko. but lets be honest, SBI was targeted.
HoD broke up. ET was "#3" but again, in reality 4 or 5. JQ got +115 points vs a "#1" server that was in reality a #10-15. and ET which was more like 4 or 5. You didn't play vs SBI. This put JQ into #1. but you didn't beat the real top server at this point, SBI.
Next week, HoD still in T1, but completely empty. Even PRX gone now. JQ 451, HoD 48, SBI 135. +93 for JQ, +46 for SBI. Now, you did beat SBI, but still had HoD poisoning the well. Perhaps you could argue this was a true week at #1. but frankly, I don't agree. It was just who would control HoD's space better.
Next week. JQ/SBI/IoJ. SBI won. Close match.
Next week JQ/SBI/BG. SBI won. JQ down to #3.
Next week JQ/SBI/BG. SBI won. JQ up to #2 again.
Next week JQ/SBI/BG. SBI won. Same result.
SBI is and has been the #1 server since HoD broke up, consistently.
I don't know who exactly you have lost, to say where you will land. SoR is pretty strong. SoS had a real fight with them. Its a bit odd to see BG beating them so hard atm. Maybe they had eventitis. IoJ is fairly weak. they lost alot. I was also suprised to see them do so poorly in T2, after that good showing in T1.
