The title of this thread says it all. Midweek SoS guilds decided to hold off on the PvE and give SBI trolls what they want.
Now that SoS has halted all PvE to fight, SBI is coming out with all sorts of excuses as to why they lost a second week. SoS is too stacked? Titan Alliance has reformed? SBI are still in PvE mode? Daish works for Anet? Just stop it, you embarrass yourself and you're server by making pitiful excuses.
SBI has been a main player due to WM / NYS zergs. When the odds are even and doubly backed by the skill of the SoS immortals they crumble and whimper like some half grade tier 4 server.
If you are referring to Titan Alliance at all. Don't! We have PRX and DiE. Which is a pretty big stack I guess. PRX is the best NA guild on GW2 NA servers and DiE is by far the best Oceanic guild. But TA ends there. There is no TA. They are 2 guilds of the some 10 that were in TA.
SBI is stacked with Yaki and SYN. On top of that SBI has WM / NYS. From our point of view it seems like every single map we go onto there is SBI in large numbers there. SBI borderlands proved the difference in numbers and skill over the past 12 hours. It took a zerg of WM with other PUGS which numbered about 50+ about 5 hours to take Dreaming Bay from 20 or so DiE and a few PRX.
The difference in this match up isn't the numbers. It isn't that people are on holidays, have been on holidays, are away, have been hit by hurricanes, are farming the new dungeon, are going for map completion. The difference in this match up is skill. The skill difference between the main guilds on SBI compared to the main guilds on SoS cannot be measured. The difference is just too much.
Enjoy the rest of the match up.
Don't even try. You are failing at it. The numbers of all the guild you mentioned are all down compared to the 3-week match with JQ/BG but we shouldn't use that as an excuse. SBI lost and we are not making any excuses. But to say that the reason SoS is winning is because of LARGE difference in skill is total bs. We can argue here all you want but you cannot prove that. I've been playing the last few days and there are only 1-2 big zergs playing in ALL borderlands (oceanic time). The main zerg just hops around but mostly stays in SBI borderland. Yaki and NYS attendance aren't even half of what they were used to be. They cant even fill 1 map nowadays (combined) or when they do, its only for 2 hours or so and SYN is a small guild also. WM attendance is lower too. I know because i've been playing at oceanic time ever since day 1 of WvW.
SoS guilds are good and highly skilled but what you said is simply baseless and borderline dumb. I've personally seen a small group of WM led by Jang Gun like 10+ members wiped out a group of 20-30 DiE and PRX. But unlike you, i won't post nonsense stuff like WM > DiE + PRX. There are too many factors to consider and due to the design of WvW, you cannot ever say which main guilds are better. Besides, if ever that's true, defending an upgraded bay is not that hard to do even if you're outnumbered.
Now, GvG is a different thing. If Anet ever implements it, then we can wait for the results and i will listen to whatever you will say.
Grats to SoS. You are officially the number 1 server now (no more PvE excuses). SBI people should stop from posting excuses so SoS guys like this person won't be hurt too much because they deserve it.
Enjoy the rest of the match up.
