Yes [PRX] is now sever hopping to JQ. I swear they have moved servers more than any guild in this game. I have also heard they have lost a very large portion of their overall numbers and effectiveness so probably are about as relevant as Team Legacy now anyway.

If anything hearing about [PRX] moving to JQ greatly hurt the overall want to go to JQ. However we were not going to let that guild effect our decision.

Regardless I am very happy to be moving to JQ! With SBI's downfall the only logical conclusion was to merge with our bitter rival and our brother in arms Jade Quarry.

Weren't you also on CD Kelo?

For someone who claims to not have any relevant feelings towards PRX you sure seem to have a strong distaste for them looking back at your posts. I for one think it's a smart move for them especially with paid transfers going in since there are quite a few guilds transferring right now. It will be great competition for T1/T2.

So my advice, since you'll be fighting along side them, is to get over your hypocritical animosity for them and suck it up like an adult.

You completely misread what I said, I said PRX as a guild is irrelevant. How I feel towards that guild will always be bitter hatred which should be rather public knowledge.

I shall ignore your advice as being on the same server as them is going to be a very bitter pill to swallow and one that I do not have to take with a smile on my face. There is nothing hypocritical about anything I have said or done so you may want to edit your post again.

I don't think PRX as a guild is irrelevant at all. Their numbers may have decreased, but their experience has increased. Now they have conquered both Europe and North America and will be coming back to NA with new tricks in their bag. Also I don't think none of of the hardcore WvWvW guilds are as big as they were at lauch - GW2 as whole has lost players. Having experienced players helps a lot in WvWvW, even if their numbers are few they can guide other players much better than most.  

Even is KV was running on map alone, PRX would still be a lot more relevant than the PvE guild you compared them with. I have seen PRX wipe off Team Legacy with much fewer numbers at Eredon Terrace Red Borderlands countless number of times. And if you think PRX is dying, just take a look at http://prx-guild.com...4/scope/threads

Why PRX would want to fight alongside some people that berated them while they were on SoS beats me... lol?

They probably want to prove that they can beat their former server mates on SoS... even though it wouldn't prove much with the tidal wave of transfers changing the field in advance of the cut off.  I'm sure they're still eager to add another bullet to their e-resume.

'They'? This isn't GvG. 'Conquered'? I'm on desolation and I can't say that I observed them being such a big factor during our match up this last period. Only saw the guild tag a couple of times, but then I do go to sleep at a reasonable time, normally before 3am.

No one said you had to do it with a smile on your face but what is the point in harboring hatred at something or someone you seem to know very little about? As far as I understand it, members of PRX don't come to these forums flashing around their achievements, belittling their teammates, or taunting their opponents like others are so quick to do. Their reputation speaks for itself in game and any guild leader will tell you that decisions on when to move and where to move to are not easy ones but definitely necessary in a game that is declining in population. They started on HoD with TA, moved to SoS after TA disbanded, moved to EU/SFR after being a part of SoS becoming #1 in NA, and are now back on NA/JQ after being a part of EU/SFR becoming #1. Why they chose JQ is beyond me because I know at one point they were bitter enemies.

So you and I can sit here all day bantering back and forth about their decision to move but the truth of the matter is it's none of our business. They have to do what's right for them and whatever perceptions have been made have been done so through blind, ignorant, assumptions.

Frankly, I think it's great they're back in NA because this means I'll get the chance to sling a few arrows into their backs as well as take my own lumps from them. It's competition and whether or not they've come back because they want to fight against SoS or just want a new home before paid transfers start it's pretty obvious they accept the challenge where ever they go.

I wish more people had that kind of fighting spirit instead of the kind that Kelo is unecessarily throwing around but I guess you have to have the bad with the good. Sadly, I see you're not up to the challenge of finding common ground with them.

Let's be honest here.  Their achievements are posted on their website and use as a recruitment tool.  There's nothing wrong with that but I'd bet that they care very deeply about their reputation and achievements--to include others interpretations of their achievements.  They are out to check boxes so that they look better.

They need to fight against SoS to erase a caveat placed on one of their achievements.  SoS didn't fail after they left so they need to beat them to prove a point.

If they did care what others thought of their achievements wouldn't they come here to defend when spoken ill of?

Maybe it's all a diversion. I can't find it now, but on the official forums War Machine had a recruitment post in which someone made a comment to the effect of: wait till people find out PRX is arriving [in Kaineng] and see the tier 5 tears. Maybe it was a troll; maybe it was premature; maybe there is more than one PRX. It's just all so exciting!

I have to say, it's really quite intriguing why guilds like PRX and WM seem to receive such envy and jealousy from others. WM and PRX have both received both subtle (and not so subtle) jabs from guilds like Agg, and this thread seems to be full of people upset about them.

Really, if they were egotistic in their posts and gloated then it would make sense, but WM for example have had only classt posts (barring obvious trolls), and I have never actually seen PRX post anything which would inspire such hatred.

Well it's not gonna say much even if they win, since JQ was able beat SoS once without PRX's help.
Either way, this should make tier 1 more fun.

One thing I've learned is that there will always be board warriors who decry the victors. All one can do is achieve their victory and and not require public approval of the truth.

At least this game has a scoreboard. The absolute best server doesn't always win, but the best server that week wins every time.

One thing I can say, is that this PRX is not like the old PRX.  They do not roll in one group, they make poor choices tactically, and they die easier.

I don't know how it will be the rest of the week, but their biggest contribution last night was people freaking out saying "PRX INC!" when it would be 5 PRX guys and a bunch of PUGS.

I personally think they are hiding their diminished numbers that way.

I think you are forgetting something and that is PRX is not at full force. It doesn't take a genius to figure it out, just go look at their web site as most of their members are hitting up against full server status on JQ. Seems like SoS will get their jollies for a few days until PRX is fully staffed and then I think we'll all see what they learned on their European vacation, which will have SoS singing a different tune entirely.  Sure SoS may win this match but I think it will be the last one they win for a long time with guilds like SF, PRX, and Yakisoba transferring in and getting up to full speed.

By the way, 5 PRX with some pugs sounds like one of PRX's gank teams; don't kid yourself that you're fighting full on PRX.

Our server has continued fighting, and despite our weekend showing almost always being quite weak, seeing ~10 PRX making such a difference on the borderlands was impressive.

Are they the best guild in the game? I wouldn't say so, especially without any real way to compare, but I still didn't see anything but classy behaviour, despite what some of the posters here might have suggested about the guild as a whole.

Following those 5 PRX, this morning, while they ran with no PIN was fun.  WvW is an attrition game and I feel JQ has one of the healthiest Server communities.  These next few weeks will be great!

If we take a loss early this week, it will just make it easier to get PRX and others in to JQ.

Its no secret they lost a lot of their core players. They even just lost another 2 of their old commanders who have moved to SoS instead of JQ. Hell i bet from the prx running nowadays i would know no more than 10 of the names from when i was in the guild before the euro jump, and a hell of a lot of the new recruits are plain terrible.
And btw yes they do come to the forums, but under anonymous names. Such as i think Hennet or something similar is actually Griffeth one of their commanders, the guy who was posting like he was a random player rallying the NA crowd to transfer "with him" and go and smush the french when the french started smacktalking on here.
As a rule though yes they cant post on forums as either their char names or the guild tag, but trust me theyre in here.

edit - and on a side note, its not just prx who have suffered depletions in strength, its most guilds across this game, so i dont know why all the attention is focused on how they are not what they used to be, as this goes for the majority of guilds.

From your post it seems like you don't like them all too much.  If so, and you don't want attention brought to them, then let the thread die and stop talking about them and then there will be no attention brought to them.
