So, 18 hours in and I think its about time we had a thread for this.  Currently the scores are remarkably close, with Blackgate being seriously Beastly even though they are slightly in third place at the moment.  Tarnished Coast seem to be holding our own pretty well, the new matchup seems to have boosted our numbers in the oceanic slot (maybe just due to the holidays, though?) and while we're having to learn a lot now we can't rely on superior numbers and morale.... so far I'm pretty pleased (and exhausted.)  I was in TCBL at reset and then EB the last six hours and both experiences have been great fun.

Really enjoying the challenge of T2. SoR and BG have obviously so much more experience playing at a higher level than what we are used to back in T3.

Scores are close atm but with it being the holiday week and with TC having a rather big coverage hole, I still expect some form of gap to open up as the week goes on. Still, I hope we stay in the tier for a few more weeks to really grow as a server!

TC, U guys definitely have a lot during oceanic. Mass red text overwhelming us in EBG tonight before we took a break for today.

SoR Oceanic wont u mind pay TC borderland a visit tomorrow? :P  If things aint get too worse for us, we'll sure pay you a visit in your borderland tomorrow,TC Oceanic!

Fun match up so far! Keep up the pressure TC!

It's nice to see TC in Tier 2.   Welcome aboard.   Good luck to all three servers.

Weird, that is kinda how it's been feeling from our side of the fence too... Wave after wave... Almost no chance to rest... Not sure I can take a month of this...

I wouldn't be so sure about that. The scores are all decently close, and TC has been putting up quite a fight. Their tactics are significantly more bothersome and irritating than SoR. TC has at least a few groups of people committed to sabotaging supply and causing a general ruckus.

I'm still confident Blackgate will win, but not as confident as I was last week.

pick up the pace blackgate. JQ cant handle T1, needs you to bump them out and show them how its done.

We'll try but i think we do need more weeks to get our coverage better than what we have at the moment. Dont think we can match tier1 yet. Unless there are Aussies' guilds joining us this year.

Btw: we also losing rating as well, so yea it's more tier1 bump JQ down than we bump ourselves up. The fight in tier2 is quite decent so that we dont get that much rating every week.

It's a well known fact that JQ has and always will be a server with a very high PvE base. This has always impacted us a lot more than others during events. This was evidenced by the halloween and lost shores events. But how easily people forget. Also we are currently leading in PPT and closing fast so I wouldn't discount us yet :)

Great fights, for sure! And yeah @ Nirvii, the people/guilds you see at Oceanic primetime aren't normally Oceanic guilds. Over weekends, we generally stay up most of the time to cover as much of the gap as possible. Over the rest of the week you'll see the huge gap in our oceanic coverage and with the numbers you guys bring out, you'll see Outmanned buff on us most of the time for the rest of the week. I am from Asia, and I stayed up till 4am this morning to do my part cuz the rest of my comrades from other timezones are doing the same during their night time.

It has been a blast playing in T2 with TC!  I told everyone not to under estimate you... everyone shrugged off the warning. ;)

I agree, been a fun time. A server who is making its first appearance in a new tier can always be dangerous, never underestimate!

Good times so far. Though it seems like some of the BGs, including myself and HB, is relaxing and having some fun after what seems like endless weeks with 8-12 hours of daily wvw. TC is a nice change and we are having loads of fun fighting you guys.

It is clear that you have a lot to learn, but you also bring something new to the table and we are slowly trying to pick it up.

Good fun so far guys, keep it up !
