Did I mention I recorded last night?  You are not a 12-20 man team.

no actually we havent peaked 30 for a while now :qq:
and i know you can see me b4 we go invisible, i've been trying to improve our movement, survival and fighting abilities overall
which is why for the most part we are only roaming in groups of less than 25.

My goal is when im done, you will see 40 of us on a map again, but way more deadly than before :cool:

You aren't releasing the facts

We have informed you of the guilds we know about. Those that approached us or we approached and agreed to make their home on JQ.Each time a guild has come on the server Stei or Rawnoodles has updated the post on here and guru or the guild leader in question did so themselves. Beyond that we really just don't know. I don't know why this is so hard to understand but the community has no control over who ultimately decides to switch to JQ. All we can do as a community is make any new folks feel as welcome as possible. Believe me, we are not hiding anything here. If we know about it we have informed folks on those forums.

Anet raised the server caps and of course it was much easier to transfer.

As I said, a few posters on SoS seem to have a bee in the bonnet about it and aren't going to let the reality of how server transfers work get in the way of their statements. Fair enough, these are both public forums and so they can post their view.

Anyway, there is not much more I can say on this apart from what I have stated so I guess we will just have to differ and you can continue believing JQ is some sort of "evil incarnate" whereas really we are just a cuddly honey badger :)

Well, I'm not going to go in to an epeen contest with you, we all know mines bigger anyway :)  I look forward to seeing your new and improved team.  Trolling aside, you guys do throw down a good fight and have forced us to go from chill mode, let's just be lazy tonight to, God damnit now we have to actually start playing the damn game again!  We love it, and I appreciate it when other teams put their game face on and come at us.  Thanks for throwin' down with us on so many occasions regardless of numbers vs numbers without having teams like yours out there to compete against the game would just not be fun.

Hugsies and kissies,

Well i had fun tonight. I lead the RK into the field and got great support form both HB, Knt, Icoa and a lot of other guilds. It was great working with you all and we took both BG and huge parts of SoS.

A good run over all. I was a bit sorry to squash both RAGE and VoTF with superior numbers and i would have liked to run into you earlier when it was RK only running around providing support so we could have had a equal fight.

Also Nice work War Sock in BG rallying the server after some terrible defeats.

Normally when people are trying to make a point, they round down the real numbers to maintain a perception.

E.g 15 minute queues = 25 minutes
5 minute queues = 10 minutes
1 minute queues = 5 minutes

Nah they really were 15min or less que's except EB which was because we actually sent some guilds there after reset debacle.

Current JQ queue times are worse than HoD's at it's peak.
I queued for Blackgate BL and didn't get in for over 30 minutes. Weirder is that BG had more ppt than us during that time.
But hey, it's to be expected when they opened all servers before ending the free transfers.

All I want is easy access to bank, TP, merchant, crafting, and to do my daily events easily. Probably should not have transferred.

If you are queued for more than 20ish minutes the perceived solution is to log out and then back in.  This is because you may of lost connection to the log in server.

Nope we haven't given up as such, alot of us are affected  by the floods in Queensland and nsw at the moment,with the net being limited or not on makes its very laggy  if you are on. Alos I know alot of merc are having time off after last weeks efforts ,we have been only get 1/3 of our guild in wvw
I say has been really fun to play against jq  this week I have gotten hammered quiet alot by you guys,
Foo last nite was great fun to die infrount of when they took bay on bg. i was the poor guy that just stood my ground when 20 or more of them  steam rolled in on me  and ALL of them jumped on me for the kill was awesome to see from my point of view, all these guys  making sure I was well and truly smashed to bits was  sooo funny. would of only taken 1 of them to smash my poor eley, and I didnt even try and run I stood my ground and fought to my last breath, which was taken out of me in 1 sec lol.

Big props to  both JQ and BG has been a great fight so far this week, but it isn't over till the bell rings  ..gl all

Bullshit. HoD had 4 hour plus ques after release. Go look at the match threads. Go troll elsewhere.

It's hard to say though. Because complainers will grossly exaggerate those same times by multiplying them by 5. I was just told 1 hour on EB que and got in under 10 minutes.

There's no need for folks on other servers to lie about JQ queue times anymore. Free transfers have ended and guild migration is done.

When I say 15 minutes, tops. I mean 15 minutes tops. And that's usually EB. And there's always at least 1 map with zero wait weeknights. Got on SoS BL instantly last night. Got on JQ BL instantly last night. Got into BG BL in 10 minutes, and yes I timed it.

Beastgate guy, if your queue lasts longer than 30 minutes, you have lost connection to the log in server and need to shut down the client and restart. There are threads explaining this bug. Next time, ask if anyone else has 30 minute queues in game before coming here and blabbering about things you don't understand. You are on JQ right now, and aparently stuck here for good unless you pay to get out (might want to change that server tag BTW). Or maybe you're not and just pretending to irk us. I don't care.

The queues on JQ are still either instant or 15 minutes tops weeknights. Period. End of discussion. Move on. No one cares except folks on JQ anyways, so take it to the JQ boards for further discussion or analysis. Thank you.

Did anyone from SoS cry about how Sea of Sorrows was the only stacked server  in North American Tier when they were winning due to their massive number advantage? No.

But that's just it. Even at our peak we were never as stacked as Stacked Quarry currently is. When we got our transfers and rocketed to T1 we beat JQ and SBI by small margins.

What you're seeing now are the fruits of your labors. You wanted to be the most stacked server in the game. Well you got it. Now you've completely destroyed SoS's interest in WvW. Blackgate is young at out for blood but they don't have a chance either. It's only a matter of time before they get tired of being outnumbered 20 to 1. So there you'll be, king of a hill players no longer care for. And all the while knowing that while your predecessors worked for it, you got there the easy way. Congrats and enjoy.

As for you being a SoS player, it's ridiculous to talk any trash to JQ because they are doing the exact same thing your server did. Stop trying to deny it, SoS was incredibly stacked, You rolled over everyone you went against, and NOW when there is finally a threat in JQ, SoS rolls over like little babies because you can no longer dominate the competition.

I am a Blackgate member and for you say we are young is just... dumb. We were in T1 while SoS was still raising through the ranks, We have been in the top tiers for a long time now and proved ourselves to be a threat. Correct me if I'm wrong but I do think Blackgate is the only server so far to go into T1, then drop back to T2, and work our way back into T1 without falling apart as a sever. We continue to fight our ass's off even when we are outnumbered in a map. SoS backed down when the competition got hot.

Disclaimer: The following post is my opinion and in no way represents the opinions of anyone else on JQ, unless they directly state otherwise. The leaders of JQ would probably ask me not to post this, but I can't stay quiet on this anymore. This is not a troll post. It's how I feel. I've held this back for 10 weeks now. I figured once JQ got in a better position, SoS would finally show some respect and give props, but that hasn't happened... so...

There's a good breakdown on the official forums of how much SoS won by for each of the weeks. 6 of them were over 50,000, 3 over 100,000.

Go take a look. If you can't find it, tell me and I'll go grab it. Or look it up yourself. You guys trashed 2 legitimate T1 servers by large amouns for 2/3 of the matchups. You guys were stacked. There's no shame in it! Good on you, SoS for having all your ducks in a row.

Let's not revise hostory here. It's just a game. We can all admit to these little things here and there. SoS was stacked. JQ got even stackeditidier during the Guild Transfer Arms Race, which began with SoS bragging about 3 new Euro guild transfers it got, and ME whining about it so hard that my own server told me to relax.

I can go find that for you to, or you can look it up.

Facts are, all the braggadocia and chest thumping and 'world champions' talk pissed of a lot of people including PRX a former SoS guild. You can't have it both ways. You can't have a server spamming guild recruitment threads, bragging and laughing and high fiving, posting page after page of explanations and 'strategy' showing how smart they are and how dumb SBI and JQ are... and NOT expect folks to hit back.

Endless 3 page discussion of how your awesome strategies and Immortals Builds and superior theory craft and this and that... reams of it! So much that we choked on it, direct addresses to SBI and JQ on how we 'just didn't get it' and needed to 'do your own recruiting and beat us' and 'stop whining and play harder' and how SoS was like the pros and we were newcommers to T1... all of it.

You guys accomplished your goal and stepped on a few toes doing it. Now, we will accomplish our goal. If you don't like it, stop us. If you can't stop us, let me finally be the one giving SoS some patronising and pedantic 'advice':

JQ stayed in T1 by being better with less. We treated our PuGs and small guilds like friends, not 'militia'. The exact statement was "Small Guilds, PuGs and Solos are the heart and soul of JQ and our greatest strength." End your top down tyranny and let everyone play their way and have fun. If you don't, now it's a job without the winning you have become so accustomed to. You'd better learn this or SoS will fall.

I hope you prove me wrong in the comming weeks. I want to fight SoS. I like fighting SoS. I respect some of your players and guilds a hell of a lot, but jeez, someone in charge over there needs to put a muzzle on all this excuse making, man up and fight back.
