Thus, basis in fact.
Your post is nothing but a bunch of "if's".
As a former Red Sox manager once said, "If frogs had wings, they wouldn't bump their booty."
Your post is your opinion based on your observation, it's not fact, you cannot predict the future and make conclusions without sufficient evidence and call it fact.
You have no idea what Blackgate will do if they were to to reach tier 1, neither do I, this is why the "if" hypothetical is so important and helps accuracy when making predictions. Historical evidence of Blackgate counters your so called "facts"
It's not unreasonable for SoS players to want fight a fresh and new competitor, even if it means we may be defeated by them.
SoS may not be as strong as they were a month ago, but that is natural in WvW for all servers. The participation rate of WvW has been slowly decaying since the game came out on August 25th. But that doesn't matter, we WvW because we love it and it's lots of fun. But to claim that Sea of Sorrows will be weaker next week than it has been this week and to claim it as fact is fantasy. It could be true, it might not be, you don't know, you have never encountered a server like Sea of Sorrows before.
As for myself that knows my server and has been on it since Beta Weekend 3, unlike you I've seen my server have a community split, take a dive through the tiers, I've seen tier 4, I've seen 3, I've seen tier 2, my server has won tier 1 for 6 weeks in a row, I've seen my server fight in every single week of those match ups, you haven't, now that's fact!
In my opinion, based on the past 5 months of playing on Sea of Sorrows, I don't think we will be weaker than we were this week.
In your opinion, you think we will be, but please don't try to call it a fact.
There is a saying, a wise man can learn a lot from a fool, but a fool cannot learn from a wise man.
