Alright SBI, first off, great game again this week. Noone came out unscathed, and the juggle between first and second has been truly epic. Personally I hope this is the new trend of WvW, no meta servers, just matches close enough that a few coordinated groups, no matter how small, can make a diffrence when they put their presence on the map in the right places. Much respect for your small units you fielded, if you could get them to coordinate with your bigger guilds, youll send us back to the white board again!
A message specifically to Vihar and MrZero. I am only assuming you two are leaders of your guild or community. I have studied leadership in the real world for 15 years, and have been addicted to MMOs for about as long. I know you may not want this job, but sorry, your server needs you. Very few people on your server command the respect of the masses like you do when you talk on here. You are professional, yet fun. You take ownership for your failings on one hand, and try to work on them with the other. You put a fun spin on an otherwise shitty situation, and finally, when you talk people listen.
In the coming days, I foresee SBI going through some structural changes on how you organize your WvW. NOONE can say you don't have the heart! Anyone who does is talking out their ass. As they move into this new level of organization, they need someone to help bump them. Someone who can talk to them with respect, while at the same time motivating them to do something they may not want to do (IE move from red is dead to a strategy table where maps are planned out). You guys see it, I see that in your posts and in your messages. The time for action is soon, be your server's Keano Reeves...
To JQ. You guys had an off week this week, but honestly, your strats are sound! You play like you have higher organization, so Im assuming you just had an off week for attendance!
Lastly, to the nay sayers. The first name that comes to mine is Kelo. Why you have forum access on the SBI forums is beyond me. From what I can tell, you showed up to SBI talking big, but all you have done is point fingers at people, call people out for being crappy, talk trash on your own server, and represent SBI is the worst possible way. Most everyone on here can see past that to your true leaders, and label you for what you are, but SBI is still recruiting new guilds to their server. What do you think it does when guilds like TSYM are shopping around for a new place to call home (we are not, but we did at one time), guilds that pride themselves on higher order tactics and training, guilds that have probably been kept away from higher tiers for reasons other than our effort or skill. Now imagine they stroll across your posts, and rather than GGing people, and showing that you can not only take a loss but learn from it, you make excuses, call people trash, and generally troll the hell out of enemies and friendlies alike! Your posts do not help your team, so how about you get on their team and start working on the problems, not rubbing it in their faces and calling them PVE carebears or something.
I look forward to the coming days, we live for the competition you guys have brought us. GG all around, GG to the gracious winners, GG to the gracious losers, GG to the trolls, and GG to the crap talkers and mud slingers. We hope the trials you all face bind you closer to your communities, rather than pull them apart!
