So...

This is a pretty good match up, eh? Everybody having fun? I know I am. Oh my oh my oh my... 8000 gems for Christmas! (what else could I get with Bestbuy cards? That place is such a rip off). Now you will see the power of this fully operational... guy.

I wish I had the day off. I wish I didn't have to go to Marshfield tonight so I could play. I wish I could see my friend again. I wish........ Zihuatanejo.

I need sleep.

It's just really crummy that SoS and SBI have to doubleteam JQ to stay ahead. 1v1, we could take either straight up

how to make WvW interesting?

1. Remove all 3 borderlands so people stop running away from fights after they lose and be stuck in EB.
2. Spread all big guilds to individual servers for more competition
3. Get rid of this Glicko ratings and just simply make winner advance/loser drops

we have 24 servers in NA and if we did this we can fill all 8 EBs pretty nicely

The thousand dollar question, that will determine T1 from  now on, is who on SBI is going with WM?  I'm sure SF and their founding die-hards are going to stick it out (after making so many public statements about transfers, I'd think they'd be to ashamed to do so).  What about WMI though?  Not to mention fairweather folks like Beastgate, who's noticeably silent all of the sudden.

As much as I'd like a shot at Blackgate, it would be a crying shame to lose SBI's presence in T1.

1. WMI doesn't exist anymore.
2. I don't really think anybody will follow us (as an individual they might but not as a guild)

We're not leaving SBI.

PERSONAL OPINION: No guild should rule out transferring servers at any time. By verbally saying it will NEVER happen, you will just paint yourself into a corner. Should you ever figure out that a transfer is right for your guild, all you are doing is setting yourself up to get trolled as a liar. You never know when a server's entire attitude is going to change from a friendly atmosphere to totally hostile. What are you going to do then? Stick around just because you said something on forums somewhere?

Edit to say: You could very well see SBI drop. But seriously, who cares? There still be two servers of enemies and winning will be just as meaningless farther down the ladder.

Someone needs to tell them that when they were fighting like beasts at Hills last night.

I just fear an exodus because the likelihood of getting 3rd a 2nd week in a row coupled by WM's departure.  When PRX left, we were still in first and had something to prove.

I think SBI will have to really over-perform over the next week to prevent their fairweather friends from leaving.
I'm certainly am looking forward to their renewed energy and the increased level of play from JQ.

Yeah, we got quite a few die hards that are left from the founding team.  At this time we don't intend on going anywhere.  We actually did have an ongoing discussion about the logic and logistics about this or even if it was a possibility of changing servers.  We will never rule it out, but at this time we will continue to stay on SBI.  We figured it would just be same shit different server.  Sooo, if we drop down in tier I'll finally get to fight against my CDS brethren and throw down with Miasmic, which I think should be really fun!  In any case, I prefer to do whatever is going to be the most entertaining to the team, which is why we all play a video game right?  Entertainment.

Yet, let this be a side note, who says we are willing to let go of being in Tier 1 yet ;)  To those of us in the fight as usual, the exiting of one guild that was slowly deteriorating in coverage for us in the past month or so should not be such a huge hit.  Our goal now is to see if we can fill a slot a little better and work on our coverage maps, which all of our servers do.  Since we are not the only server with coverage issues, I think we are still on close to the same ground in average coverage.  I don't have factual data, I'm seriously talking out of my ass with that, it's more of a feeling than anything.

To me trolling, bashing, tea bagging, snide remarks about ones mother about how she is so fat she uses diet soap, complimenting skill level, zerging, forcing team splits, doing themed nights, the list goes on and on...etc etc etc...  is all part of the game.  As for the harassment of players, I would only suggest doing it to those players that you know if you are going to do it cross server.  I myself and Jerico from Agg are still on a level that I can call him a cum guzzling queen and expect a retort about how I screw dogs for quarters, or the witty excuse after I wipe his team over and over :P  Yet, if I were to message the commander/gm of MERC the sentiments won't be taken as likely.  Then on the flip side with Tsym, Coron and I are very mature in most of our convo's and show respect to one another.  I can act like a 12 year old, I don't mind, hell just being in any one of our voice comms in any guild no matter what the age bracket we're all kids :)

A bird tell me that PRX soon will go to Kaineng to ride the coat of War Machine to hide their lack of skill to member loses. I do not think PRX can win a server any more so watch the space for them jumping to where a nother big guild is.

I like you zero, you and all SF ive seen so far have a lot of class and experience.  Might be interesting to work with you guys at some future date.

Why thank you sir. Honestly, sometimes I lose control and get very trollish. The mods in these parts are cool though and let me off with verbal warnings. If it wasn't for SF, I may have been looking somewhere to call home. So what you say is true, you never know what could happen.

Oh don't mind him. Some people think that if they make another account to support what their first account said, it makes them seem more popular. I'm not saying that's the case here (or am I?), but that's what some folks (this poster) do.

  This is the truth.

   At least, it is for the very large guilds.

  Agg and Tysm are still together....but there must be a dozen or more very large guilds prior to them that are either small now, or gone altogether.

  Tier 1 has that effect, I think. It is harder to keep everything together after a couple of months in tier 1than it is when you are rising and have the goals to strive for..like getting to tier 1.

   Once you get there, every week is just another week, with no rewards and no further goals available to keep players motivated. The only place to find any further reward or advancement is in PVE...and that just sucks for WvW in general.

WvW reward? Making SoS send 40 people to take down 5 of us on their borderland because we keep starting the breakout event.

1st group they send, 10 people. Wiped.
2nd group, 15 people. Wiped.
3rd group, 20 people. Wiped.

15 badges later...

Okay, fine here's 40 SoS dropping siege and portal bombing the five of us.

  This is good enough for maybe 1-2% of us.

  Since the advent of WoW, players need shiny things...you know....."every player gets a trophy" philosophy.

   I just want to get players back INTO WvW.

   I want to have it where no server ever had the outmanned buff on any map.

   That's what WvW was supposed to be.

You make very good points. To get population back up, rewards need to be equal to, if not BETTER than PvE.

The only thing that nags at me is that even the lure of making a Legendary hasn't been enough to get people into WvW. They constantly want the badge requirement taken off. If there WERE great rewards in WvW, people would just bitch that it's not fair because they don't like PvP.

Maybe better rewards might bring back those who like WvW but had to go to PvE to get the best shiny, but I've got a feeling most of those folks are still in WvW, just not as much.

I still can't believe that I finally found a WvW game I like and now it's getting empty. Maybe the solution is to make it so there's only 6 WvW servers for NA and 6 for EU, and do the rankings with all 12.
