The leadership on SoS is why we are winning
You forgot: We are more skilled. We are more organized. We have a great server community. We can hang on to our guilds. Other servers are quitters without heart and can't grind. We aren't a flash in the pan server and don't have large guilds. We don't QQ on forums like the other servers. We are made of steel; other servers are made of straw.  We have a deep leadership bench.

Sometimes, I think the collective attitude of the forum posters is terrible. I have never whined or boasted in any game its always been about having fun. When i was on DB at launch our homeland was entirely capped and everyone lost moral and quit i stayed with two other guys and hunted them and picked off stranglers. I will never stop fighting and i will never give excuses all i want is a good fight and as long as i get those i am happy. I was on JQ for a lot of the Betas and a lot of those guilds are very kind and polite and its nice to play them. I don't know SBI guilds in particular but it actually made me sad when LoD quit that was one of the best guilds i have seen in this game. I think we should work on mutual respect and having fun in the good sport of fighting T1 guilds. People say T1 is stale or it is boring? WvW is what you make it and if you don't like how it is being done you need to become more active in your server community to make a change. Even if your a smaller guild just find another guild to coordinate with and just see what sort of strats you can come up with. Its your own creativity and thinking that makes WvW fun and new.

Hmm, you were on DB and now on SoS.

Seeing the primetime populations on all three servers has been really disappointing. I'll continue hoping that everyone is playing with snowballs but I think the truth is bright.

You should see the off-time populations. SoS has their whole map covered and we can't get even enough players to start the break-out event.

2. Someone said that the bandwagon effect is a myth. No it's not. It WAS real. Now, though, most of the bandwagon has moved on to other games entirely. Oh, there's maybe a handful of players still doing it, mostly from dead servers, but the primary wave of SoS bandwagoners came in two parts. The first infusion was when they hit T2. The second was after their first T1 victory. When they do lose, those folks will bump one more time to another server. But it's such a small number, and at NA Primetime. Makes little difference now. I'd say the exodus of PRX certainly balances the bandwagon out.

Your timeline is a bit off but the fact is that a lot of SOS guilds are having a great month long streak in recruiting.  Even more interestingly, most of the recruitment are players new to GW2.
So to clarify, SOS is getting a lot of players new to the game when they find out who's leading; but we haven't had an infusion of experienced players and guilds since DIE joined us a month ago. (who seem to have disappeared a week ago completely, it'd be nice if they let us know if they were off playing another game or something)

Anyway, I could see SOS losing in coming matches (if JQ hadn't waited for midweek to begin their push, they might have pulled off a win last week), but I like to think the put downs and the like should be shelved.  All three T1 servers have earned their spots here and we're having amazing fights.

I have seen some sad shit, but nothing is sadder than seeing the new breakout commander get swarmed by 40 + people, while the people who brought the breakout commander into action run away.

It's just depressing man, that guy had a family, he had 2 weeks left on his rotation till he went home to see his charr kids. What a senseless war we are all fighting. OH GOD SIEGERAZOR FORGIVE US.

Anyone from SoS who does not yet understand that by the time they got to T1, JQ and SBI were already losing the bulk of their players just isn't really playing WvW, or they are blind.

   Look at your OWN server, and you've only been here less than a month. How's that WvW population doing for SoS compared to when you got here?

   If you haven't noticed, you're either an idiot, or your not actually in WvW.

   It's not "excuses", it is the state of the game....but keeping trying to prop up your floppy e-peens.

  In another 3 weeks, SoS won't be able to field any more players than SBI or JQ.  Maybe less.

IRT a few posts/a page or so back: I don't understand the desire to want different opponents. If you think Blackgate or SoR will bring vastly different tactics, I think you're subscribing to a bit of wishful thinking. Chances are JQ|SBI|SoS will stomp them so hard due to tier 1 experience & coverage that they (understandably) will struggle for numbers and you'll be more bored than you might be now.

Were you on SoS when we were T2?  It wasn't much different from T1.  The ELO gap is misleading.

What happened to your cries of "SBI is better then SOS in open field combat." So far when Isaw you guys, you melted quite quickly. (Rage I mean)

You seem to talk a lot of shit but why don't you just accept it. SOS is superior in all aspects of WvW and PvP to the other servers.

(Shoutout to SF though cuz you guys are *ing awesome and fun to fight against :D)

I should have clarified: those wishing to fight "different opponents" don't understand what they're asking for. The end-result will be no different from now (except you'll just stomp them more). The tactics will be mostly the same, minus the benefit of coverage (and some experience from more practice) that the tier 1 servers enjoy.

4. And lastly, most importantly.

Winning WvW definitely makes you a better person. In fact, I've heard that right after winning, each player experiences a flashback montage of their heroism with Tina Turner's 'Simply the Best' playing in the background. So awesome! Can't wait.
I lol'd!  Honestly though, this week has been a great week for TSYM to start training up our people we picked up.  With all the pressure we got for the last few weeks, we could only spare an afternoon at most!  I would recommend to the other guilds, to find that PVE/new player talent on their server, the resource that has been untapped, and use the rest of this week and next to train them up!

Also, we recently brought some new officer blood in, and they have been pumped up and motivated to bring our guild to the next level! Try it out, look at your roster, or ask around.  If there is some fired up and commers in your guild, put them into the position to spread that fire to the rest of your leadership!  Even I was taken back by how pumped these guys were to push this guild from sharing a map to soloing our own.  That energy is contagious, and before I recruited them I was getting roughly 3 recruits a week, now im pushing 10 at least.

Lastly, go enjoy this down time.  GW2 isnt all WvW, though it is the best part of it.  Hit some dungeons, level an alt, and spam that WvW recruitment message!  We have thousands on our servers who have little to no experience in WvW, and we have seen more than our share.  This is also a GREAT time to start up a new WvW guild if your thinking about it.  The untrained potential is out there, all you have to do is reach out!

Share the love, go get them!

Nice stealth take of Dawn's in JQBL by two thieves from SBI.  I have pics of who it was PM me, sorry no video.

Nice try by them again at Wood, but we got them this time as well as the rest of SBI.

Most people probably already know atleast one of them. We report them too. We even pulled off of a tower tonight and didn't defend it once we realized it was taken by exploit. Guild name start with an H by chance?

That's the one I thought you knew of.  But then there was another one.  I posted a pic on your board.  It's a crappy pic was trying to get better but unsuccessful.

I think in the case of that person in a tower, video wouldn't much be required, he took atleast two tonight in SoS BL that we know of. It's a given, if you see him on a map, place ppl in your towers. He doesn't run with the zerg, he only looks for options to take your towers. We've publicly flogged and reported him. You guys have reported him. I'm really at a loss as to how he's still here. I think between our servers though, we have pretty good communication on it. One of our commanders was in touch with one of your guys a few times tonight letting him know the general directions we'd see the suspect going in. Hell at one point, I even invited an SoS person to my group so I could say we were pulling off of a tower because we'd just found out how it was taken.

JQ is not a Hardcore WvW sever. We do however have a strong core of guilds and commanders that shoulder majority of the WvW weight.  

I will be putting in my WvW hours now that my work week is over, see you on the battlefield!  :)

The idea was to use the ram in back to decimate a tower gate in one hit. Apparently this feature has not been activated in game yet.
