Plus, no one has more experience playing against ex-TA than SBI.

None of the major guilds on SoS are from Blackgate as far as I know.  Maybe some in the past couple of days???

Aggression transferred to SoS a few weeks ago and DiE this week along with a few ELTE that are still playing the game. That's it. Don't listen to Beastgate.

DiE is pulling some pretty big numbers last I checked. Ran into a group of at least 40 of em in a BL the other night. (When your already outmanned on a timezone and you see more people joining that timezone it feels like 100+) Thus it does have an impact

You know what man, you are one of the people these SoS guys are pissed off at. How about you cut the feces cloying to your vocabulary and get in the game and fight. Maybe if the trolls stopped talking and started doing the score that everyone clings to like Frodo Baggins in Kay Jewlers would be different.

Of course it's nothing major in their eyes, just like how some of us here at SBI downplayed War Machine's importance when Blackgate was complaining about them.
And keep in mind server transfers were completely open during the trial weekend, so any guilds that transferred could have brought everyone.

So that's three guilds. I don't see where I was wrong when I said guilds from Blackgate transferred to SoS. Certainly more correct than the SoS player who said no major guilds were transfers.

Actually so are you by defending them. Like I said it's between me and them. What does it matter to you? unless of course you happen to be one of them.

Not defending anyone, just stating facts.

But we'll see which server comes out on top in 3 weeks if it drags out that long.

Don't see how that's possible. I really never understood the reason for not listing your guild and server under your info. It's the internet, there's no need to be shame.

I don't know where you are pulling 70k from, but I get what you are saying.  I know SoS and their weekday crew.   SBI and JQQ have no hope.  I realize you are just trying to rally the troops so that they don't think this is in the bag and become complacent.  My opinion is that we should take it easy until they actually start gaining ground against us.  We have increased the score every day so far.  The IOJ weekday comeback doesn't work against us because WM cannot PvDoor.  I am sure WM will try a Thanksgiving all nighter since it is not one of their holidays, but we will be there.  No need to get too worked up over this match.  The real T1 servers are SoS, BG and SoR.  We just need to wait for ELO to catch up.

In Tier 3 a number of weeks ago, SoS vs SoR vs CD, SoR gained a 60k swing against us after the Candy Corn patch (from behind to snatch a 40k lead), we came back with a 70k momentum swing in return (from 40k down to a 30k lead).

If there is anything to learn from the above match up, JQ and SBI have every hope of winning this week, we can't say it's over and take it easy, that's the exact same attitude we had against SoR, and the same attitude SoR had to us and look how that turned out for the both of us. This is Tier 1, SBI are the come back kings, if you've been fighting in the borderlands you will realize that the score line isn't telling the whole story of what's happening in the battles, this week has been hectic.

We've got to press our advantage until the result is final, if you give them an inch, they'll take a mile away from you in return. Things don't just happen by themselves, you've got to work hard for it and earn it.

The real Tier 1 servers are SBI, JQ and SoS, that's the whole point of the glicko ratings. Tier 2 is not far behind and I can imagine BG and potentially SoR coming here very soon if they work hard.

Aggression transferred to SoS the week prior to BG hitting T1.

Well here the deal guy the only reason why SBI is losing is because we all are not a bunch of nerd and have to take bathroom break, it's okay next week we won't take a lot of bathroom break, and if we lose by any chance it's because our force has just learn about PS2 and um SoS probably got some more people from BG/SOR/JQ/FA/...etc that's the only reasonable way we can lose as SBI we are pro it's just that those noob SoS is cheating, cause when my group was attacking those noob SoS in there BL I mean WTH even JQ group helped and they wiped us out cause the SoS was using the invisible WvWvW bug all sudden I die!!! WDF???!!

It's k SBI feel sorry for the noob SoS we let them win for this week, and JQ my bromance server they can have second cause I like them no homo!

NOT MAKING EXCUSE! THIS IS TRUTH!

I came in to check up on the match... but instead people arguing over the same stuff?

Guilds have been moving servers from day 1. Guilds will move servers next week. Sooner rather than later SBI, JQ and SoS will all be out of T1 - who knows we could have Kaineng and Devona's Rest up there. How many predicted ET and HoD in T6?

Personally I don't care. All would agree that the battles have been crazy out there (I had my first experience of facing LoD last night). As long as I ilke the people I play with and am enjoying the match-ups I'm happy.

And my guess is SBI and JQ underestimated SoS, which they won't do next week. It will be much closer right from the start. Can't wait.

That's a great attitude to have.  I would like to invite you back to check out jadequarry.com now.  See if it has changed for the better, if it hasn't then comdemn it.  We are doing good things over there and have a lot better communication than we have had since the game started.

I have still an account there, but not much time for forums atm - neither for the game, what makes me sad. But I'll try to check jq forums more often now.

And now back to bloodspilling!

There's still a chance that we can fight back. It's usually Wednesday when we start to claw our way back up.. Just need to work our asses off.

We portal bombed DiE a while ago, then we got wiped out, they portal bombed us at our catapults, they got wiped out,

Lesson learned for today? Portal bomb sucks, when enemy knows it is coming lol.

Nice Fight, hope to have the same challenge tomorrow, good night :D

Hm, I'm new to the server but I didn't see much of any of those guilds in EB all weekend. 70-80% of the people I saw were PRX, and throughout the weekend the most failed map was EB.

PRX was mesmer-tunneling siege golems to surprise undefended objectives, keeping pressure on defended objectives with constant trebbing, and in the open field they were constantly maneuvering with flanking, portal bombs, feinted retreats etc. Meanwhile they had teams of thieves taking out yaks, scouts on all defensible locations and superior siege weapons everywhere.

If that's bandwagoning I hope some more guilds bandwagon onto SBI so we can pull this off. But I guess I shouldn't take the words from Profit Sports, who is a troll recently kicked out of War Machine, too seriously.
ASC, OnS, VI, and ATac are part of AoI and completely owned JQ BG all weekend.

I've been checking out JQ borderlands the last couple days and yeah, it seems like those guilds in Aol are consistently on it. It's been up and down in different time zones. It seems like the only rock hard base for SoS is Eternal Battlegrounds, but I have no idea if PRX is still on that map.

Nothing special, any server has more active WvW players win :)

And any server who gains PPT 500+ (PvDoor) win, because 1 hour at 500 PPT = 4-5 hour at 300 PPT in this system.

1 hour at 500 PPT ~ 1.6 hours at 300 PPT

EDIT:
But yeah, to catch up with a 100 pt lead takes a lot longer than building a lead with a 695-0-0 score so I see what you are saying.

I believe he was referring to the net points gained.

300 PPT doesn't gain you much when the opponent is getting 240, but when you are getting 500 PPT, that opponent may only be getting 45 or something like that.

  So the difference is one hour of 500 PPT is a LOT more gain than 1.6 hours of 300...more like 4-9 hours...depending on the spread of points on the other servers.
