He has a point, anyways - PvEers who don't participate in WvW have minimal or no effect on the queue times or overall WvW participation, so if all of the WvWers on one server transfer to another without a PvE population, it makes no net change. In fact, I'd argue that the net change would be negative, because you're depriving yourself of a larger PvE population that may at some point become interested in WvW. This isn't an issue with the players or the distribution of them that want to participate in WvW, it's the simple fact that people are going to get bored of doing the same thing over and over again, and no matter if you hop onto a bandwagon or not, it's not going to change human nature. The only thing that could make a difference here would be the bandwagon/teamstacking effect - which I'd argue is definitely happening, no matter what the OP says, but I'll stop harping on that.
Besides - "competition?" Kaineng's been consecutively breezing past all WvW matchups for the past month or two with 10 times the number of points of the other servers. When Kaineng gets to where SBI used to be in the matchups, they're going to be faced with the exact same problems that caused them to migrate to Kaineng - including WvW fatigue.
Seriously, what the heck did he do to you? It looks like you're itching for a flamewar given your usage of bold/underlines and casual insults, so I probably won't bother responding after this. But seriously, calm down - he said nothing that would warrant such a bitter response.
I apologize for coming across as an "arse", I'm just stating the reality of what happened on SBI (now happening on IOJ). It's fact, though you may not like it. Some people just don't like to hear the truth and by not saying the truth or dismissing it, believe it goes away.
Anyway, I apologize for my passion, but if you look at his insulting post towards CO for going to Kaineg, perhaps you can comprehend my points. The bold underline was to point out that there are full servers with people who do not WvW and the competitive WvW players find that frustrating.
His point (and yours) that people who don't PvP don't have any effect on the performance of a server in WvW is just completely false.
The WvW players in this game are doing what Anet should have done in the first place: Making PvP servers and PvE servers separate.
