Your name is quickly becoming ironic. I can't speak for everyone on our server but I noticed a marked lack of participation this weekend compared to last. And it makes sense. Last weekend we beat you - handedly. You were last place. But your numbers allowed you to catch up during the week. Your numbers killed any chance of competitive match ups. I'm not sure anyone seriously thinks they can beat JQ in it's current stacked state. They only people left are the play for fun crowd.
You second comment is very telling. You can completely give up a map and still win with "all your folks" (I take it you mean guilds?) not even playing? Oh but you guys win with skill! Not numbers!
And what vids are you referring to? Are they Guild v Guild or Guild v Pugs? We can easily beat groups twice or more our number if we're organized and they're not.
You guys so desperately want to prove you're better than everyone else. But the same reason you suddenly became #1 is the same reason your ability is now impossible to prove. You've stacked yourselves to the point where you can approach WvW in the most casual manner in t1 and still come out on top.
You respect Blackgate? Blackgate earns their victories.
Numbers win. I've always said it. You chose your arguments here and there, fine. Whatever.
My name is obviously tongue in cheek.
So, if we win with less numbers, then it proves we have more numbers, meaning we win with numbers... this is just silly, dude. No one said we were better. We said equal. Some others said we have no skill.
It's just not true. We have as much skill as you do. I, as a player, have as much skill as you do. You have as much skill as I do. We have more players. We win. Never did I say that made us better.
What I said was that in open field battle, certain servers have been known and are known as better. Some servers are better at defense and seige placement. Some are better at stealth tactics.
I don't understand why praising my own server causes such a violent reaction from some posters here. I am NOT saying anyone else sucks. YOU are saying that. I am defending saying we DO NOT suck. Check the history.
I respect BG because JQ and BG came from the same place and fought through adversity the same way. Just before free transfers shut down, we got a lot of new players, BG did not. It could have just as easily gone the other way. BG might be in 1st place, and JQ might have dropped to T2.
Do you remember those weeks we almost did? Do you know what we had to do to stay in T1? Do you know what a very smart SoS poster told us to do? He told us to get our shit together and hit the recruitment trail. We didn't like hearing that. But we did it.
SoS gave JQ the winning formula. SoS set us straight. "If you want to stay in T1, JQ, you'd better start recruiting some new blood." We are using your blueprint. The winning blueprint.
But the truth is, we didn't do it to win T1. We did it to beat SoS. You guys had our number for weeks. You guys destroyed SBI, ruined them. AGG torpedoed that server by focusing on a guild leaded he knew he could break. It worked.
Unfortunately, it left some SBI guilds with a huge chip on their shoulders. We gave them their only chance to get back at you.
SoS is a great server. You guys survived PRX leaving when no one said you would. You guys advanced theory craft and server organization beyond where T1 had been previously. Above all, you taught everyone how to play the propaganda game. These are all things to be very very proud of. NO ONE is saying you guys suck. Okay?
But now with the departure of FoE and AGG, you'll have some tough sledding ahead and might want to rethink your hostile attitude towards your neighbors... It's hard to recruit with the end of free transfers, but hey is AGG and FoE can move, other guilds can too.
Also, you might want to actually listen to advice from other servers instead of getting all offended. JQ did not like the bitter pill SoS made us swallow, but we listened.
SoS, so far, has been the most successful T1 server in the history of the game. Unfortunately, maybe too successful. SoS made the new JQ possible. The only way bitter rivals like SBI and JQ would ever join up was a common enemy as dominant as SoS.
SoS is a great server.
Praising your own server is NOT bashing other servers.
Numbers win on the scoreboard. OBVIOUS.
JQ has as much skill on the battle field as any other server. Trying to argue that having numbers and having skill are mutually exclusive is a fallacy. We have both.
And lastly, I am friendly with many guild leaders from all servers, including yours. Don't take any of this stuff to seriously. We don't.
