I agree with this but I would add a 3rd option because I am not sure how much SoS have explored this. Maybe you have, I dont know but would welcome your input. When you say take the players we have and make them the best I think you are referring to your core WvW guilds. You have a large possibly untapped population of folks on your server who maybe don't do much WvW currently unless you are winning but a large margin. Believe me, all servers experience that and we have struggled with it as well. Getting some of those folks out there and involved can help alot. Insisting they have to join the core of WvW guilds you have can actually be counter productive to that goal.

Some steps that could help alot are:
1. a communtiy voip server - JQ's works but its not perfect by any means but it does provide access for the smaller guilds to interact and get to know the other guilds and folks
2. focus on your community more and not on your main WvW guilds. Maybe you already do this, I don't know but from readin the forums I don't really get that impression. I see so many comments from folks on your server that suggest an elitist attitude focussed around the main WvW guilds. Bury that attitude if you can and be more inclusive.

Anyway, just some ramblings, I might be way off base here and if so I apologise but if you are interested in talking further send me a PM as I am interested in helping if I can.
Man, that was a very intelligent, constructive, and cohesive post! Run dude. Don't look around, don't question it, RUN!

Actually we were referring more to the small guilds rather than the big. The big guilds are very good, and they do great work, but sometimes the smaller guilds get overlooked. That is where we retake number 1!

Well thanks for making class go by faster, see you all on the field!

Probably the same thing we did last night, crush you and make you quit coming out to play.

^^ -- now that was trolly.

As for the rest of it I am sorry I, and our server don't fit into your strategical paradigm.  We're kind of a riddle wrapped in mystery inside of an enigma.

Seeing as you misquoted me more than Fox News, I won't even respond to anything in that highly negative and inflammatory post.  If you feel like rolling it back, you can see where this whole line started. It started with us working on training and building team skill to meet the new challenge you have presented.

I don't expect you to do anything other than flame the crap out of a purely non-flamatory post. You do have a rep to live up to after all.

You guys are the big bad wolf, we are going to try and take you down, not bawl in the mud about how unfair everything is. Coverage is real, skill is real, they are facts and not up to your interpretation.  You can believe in both, not just one or the other!

We chose to fight, train, and advance. If that gives you the Uncontrollable need to lash out and flame, that is your choice.

Man , what are you trolls gonna do in 15 min when I get to head home and put my money where my mouth is?

Well the thread started several pages back, but this latest discussion started with you basically saying JQ was stacked and you needed to go back and train more to fight with what you have. I have no problem with that statement. That is exactly our position about 10 weeks ago. However, if thats all you said then we would not be having the chat we are now would we. Go back and read you last few posts with an objective eye.

Coverage is real and skill is real, hmm, yet again basics 101 statement. Want me to find some quotes from your statements 10 weeks ago?

Well, my prime time will be starting in about an hour so once i have sorted things out at home i will be setllting down to play and so no doubt will meet you on the battlefield. I am not hard to miss, there are about 3 of us fielding an Oreo tag in WvW at present.

Btw can you get your guild to log please.  We are trying to bring in some guildies to be more effective in wvw and you're slowing us down.

You would be surprised, apparently many SoS folks regard me as a big bad troll. Many others from other servers have actually commented on how they like some of my posts for exactly the reasons you described. The truth is no doubt somewhere in the middle.  I have a robust attitude to posts sometimes which can turn folks off and the message can get lost. That does not mean I am some sort of raging loony.

Seriously, if you are interested in my thoughts on this topic, I am happy to take it to PM. I don't mind if you don't want to take that up of course as I respect your decision either way. The bottom line is that any advice I give is freely given and up to you what you want to do it, discount it as rubbish or use some of it to help as you see fit.

Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.

Did you just admit that you guys used to win fights because of numbers?
I admitted that it was easier when we had more numbers than we do now.  We still had to hit hard and put in a lot of hard work.

For instance; SF was a force to be reckoned with on SBI, but we didn't sweat much because it was just SF.
Now that JQ has the numbers it fields, SF has to be watched because that means that CRNG, AoS, or PRX are now free to attack another target.

Sure, dig through my old posts, while your at it, why dont you drag out how many positive, GG posts saluting my opponents, respecting their skill on the field, and GGing the whole server for doing great.  Pay special attention to the two weeks where you guys won, and couldn't stop rubbing it in our faces every second post, saying SoS was dying, and you were the new king of all crap.

Speaking off, GG again JQ, we got lots of training to do to balance out your off peak hits, but great win this week!

Also, Im starting to think you guy have some sort of excuse complex, where no matter what you see on here, you immediately assume someone couldn't be taking the loss in stride, and posting constructively.  Quit projecting, and try saying something polite about the servers you will be beating for the next few weeks.

Suppose the trolls can only win as graciously as they lost eh?  Least you got guilds like EMP to carry you guys class whise! /salute EMP!

Since you are calling me a hypocrite then please point me to a post where I moan about SoS in these terms in the previous 12 weeks. I can only represent myself here, I would never pretend to talk for JQ at all. If other JQ folks want to moan then thats their bag. I am very confident I have not. I have just accepted that SoS was winning and that we needed to raise our game to give you a good fight that is all.

Honestly, if you think that comments was too strong then I am sorry, as I said I can be robust at times and sometimes call it as I see it. That does not mean its the truth is just my opinion and we all have those don't we.

Please convince me otherwise, I will happily take the abuse when SoS win this match up.

Likewise and well said. No matter what server or guild, we put all our hard earned time into WvW. The best victory is showing humble respects to winning and loosing teams alike.

I don't see reasons for all the QQing on all sides. When a server wins its classified just as that, its not listed as a win only because of coverage or whatever reason people say is the reason they won.
At the end of the week the best server will win, its just that plain and simple.

Looking forward to more fights with JQ and SoR

See you all on the battlefield.

That is something that make me wonder as well, why we on SoS never have some kind of community teamspeak. I even post on SoS forum and suggesting that SoS need this thing, not only its usefull for map coordination its also important stuff for some guilds that were considering to transfers to SoS before the end of free transfers. Alas it seems nobody on SoS care about this

Well said, most WwW guilds on SoS tends to treat pugs like garbages and put the blames on them if something goes wrong and then they wonder why they dont get reinforcement when they outnumbered by enemy zerg. Now if only some of WwW guilds on SoS knew how to better treat their pugs.
(hint: Patone alone by himself start a guild on December and in only 1 month his guild was able to recruit more than 400 members. He was the sole commander in EB before he quit few weeks ago and whenever he ask the pugs to rally on him ,he alwas got himself a BIG zergs ready to follow his command. go figure...)

note: im not Patone nor i was a ex/member of his guild, im just some casual pug on SoS although by posting this im afraid im gonna be accused i was a JQer pretend to be on SoS

I don't care what you think you see.  You are disrespecting an entire server with lines like "a server that just quits as soon as things don't go your way," and "a fearsomely strong opponent is now a kitten."

With all that fussing about us outnumbering you, and now you want to try and say shit like that?

Somebody mentioned our PPT lead during this same period yesterday.  Yeah we did well, but, because its sporadic you should be able to figure out why.  Not give us shit about "quitting."  Same thing for SoR, maybe even more so considering their NA crew is just as crazy as us.

Well like a /salute after a wipe, its never meant as sarcastic, and always as an toast of the highest regard!  Least not when it comes from us.  Our posts are the same, and while some come on here and bash their opponents, I reserve the bashing for WvW, and the /praise for here (and the occasional 3v1 vs forum trolls when class is dragging on).

Anywhose, almost time to get into WvW!  I wonder if normal people get as excited about crap in their day as we get about WvW...

I'm sure they do. It's just something different that they're into. You should see the Android rooting/hacking community forums like XDA. For my wife, it's handbags, shoes and shopping on the internet. We all have our "thing" that gets us through the day.

Yea, sorry, was more talking to the collective flame thrower wielding trolls that pounced on my original post like a baby lowered into a raptor cage.

I have to say, I don't think everyone who had issue with your post was a troll, so please don't do them and yourself such a disservice by blanketing them all under that group. Some of them had very valid reasons to have issue with what you said - when SoS would get a huge spike during Oceanic times and the few Aussies on JQ would be at a loss to match what you had, we werent going "Oh grats SoS, but it's all because of your superior coverage, dw we'll hold workshops and get better".

Sure you may have congratulated us before, but almost every post of praise I have seen before has had some kind of allusion to how you guys are great, have been training hard, or "been kept on your toes". There is nothing wrong with admitting that you may have lost, because I would honestly not believe you if you said you don't get beaten - even RG and PRX get beaten in open combat, and I have seen those first hand. Please, don't bring up the time you wiped ~10 PRX out of a whole group as an example of "beating" PRX, and then losing to them a few days later once they got more members in down to good training, because while I'm sure they do train, they always were terrifying as a force when they had their members in.

When it comes right down to it, try just admitting that you may have lost, and leave it at that. No "we will train to deal with X" or "your superior coverage does X", All servers have periods throughout the day where they break the trend of an even split between points. Now, please don't take this as an attack against you, I respect you guys as competitors, but the irony in saying that we are only winning because of superior numbers and coverage really makes such posts sound downright silly. Again, labelling everyone who disagrees with you a troll isn't helping your image. For the real trolls out there, it doesn't matter what they are called, but calling those who have legitimate queries or issues with something you say is downright offensive, and doesn't help your image.

Dear VoTF guy on South supply camp of SoR BL last night.  My apologies for our 1on1 getting interrupted by a guildie of mine, I laid off my attack afterward and told everyone in mumble to let it go it got ruined.  I have yet to be taken out 1on1 and you were getting really close to be my first loss, I hope to run in to you again.
