You are misreading my words.  I prefer the lesser numbers fight over zerg fighting...  If the situation requires to run in larger number for that time, I would be prepared to run as such, I just dislike the "need" to run in such numbers.  A preferred method of game play is a preferred method of game play vs what is the necessity at said time.  You could probably ask any guild that has worked with us from SBI and now JQ, we prefer going suicidal in to things by ourselves than to drag a whole ton of pugs with us and quite possibly cause some nerd rage from our own server mates because of our play style.  My job is to force you to come fight me and play the survivor game and see how long we hold a force at our location.

Having fought PRX since HoD days I can tell you their number are LOW. Like 10 to 15ish from what i see. Back when we were fighting HoD they would be the only group on EB like 120ish people. They got sick of waiting on wvw updates and as far as i can tell the core leadership has all but moved on. I hope Anet gets their kittens together because there are not many large guilds logging on very much.

Also having been afk for 2 months and reading these threads, whoever this Coron is, sounds like Meneace 2.0, What ever happened to that "elite tactics" guild MMAC?

[Vexx], [ZEK], [Hel] thank you guys for trying to uphold the small-team dream.  We really need more people running in small-up-to-five-man teams.  I hope one day that coordinated elite groups and personal skill will make the zerg obsolete...

Yeah, while I am kinda commenting on this from the other side - I've noticed ZEK being a consistent pain in the ass when we are doing small ops as well and we'd always run into the roaming team around ruins. I swear that frosura hundred-nades engineer is one of the toughest sons of ***** that I've faced out of tPvP, whenever he pops into view the party usually gets tunnel vision on him because he has the tendency to one-shot guys (bastard). Its good to see good small ops teams, be them DoP/iR (now joined into a guild called Havoc legion, or [HL]) or small ops teams on JQ. Its awesome to see this skill in WvW, and it would be awesome to see other guilds take up this approach.

No fair numbergrumbling Mr. SF
I stopped by SoSbl sunday night to observe SPQR in mid-seige and didnt see any shortage of JQ.
I dunno if you think SF and PrX together add up to less bodies than TW (record max online-35) but you certainly didn't need a keep to repel them. It kinda suprised me seeing you guys hit them (It was a great hit too, made me chuckle. You guys are on-par no denying) because when I think prx, I don't normally think needs their numbers bolstered.
By means of comparison, TW bolstered by a few 5 man guilds take and hold garrison. And, the inevidable SoS ninja attempt which is the likely lag source.
If a second large SoR guild is fielded, like on the forementioned sunday FEAR was, they take/hold a second objective.  Such as Hills, which they did, shortly after.
Now do your math. TW takes garrison, FEAR simultaneously assaults hills. How many server clogging militia could there possibly be?

You have heard of [Choo], right?

Coron is not a troll, just a bit schizophrenic right now as I think there is some stress going on.

   At any rate, Coron is FAR from Menaace 2.0. Menaace is a Hall of Fame Troll of the first order.

   MMAC more or less fractured, and many members have reformed as [AoS], but it is truly a different guild with a different personality, and quite classy and friendly.

Yeah the pain train [choo] was on the map before prime time. That horse is nothing but bones, i'll not keep whacking it. The breakdown I described was at 10 eastern. You know, when we have coverage for more than a map or two.

But I do find it odd that you sought smaller party fights on JQ and in t1?
The reason we ex-pats left was in search of breathing room. Yet ironically, here we are.
If we really want smaller team battles were going to need to reorganize the high tiers all at once.
Theres a lot of space to spread out in, but the locals tend to call it a week early.

I hear ya. The problem in my opinion is that we all have to let go of the giant lagball. Everyone has to do it. As long as one server is going to runaround with 40+ people stacked in suck a way that they look like a scene from The Blob and you can't even read the names above their heads, it's never gonna go away.

In the mean time a great man once said, "If you don't like it, learn to love it!"

I can live with the 30-40 person teams, but when the numbers reach 50++ I just think that's a lot of other tactical items those types of teams could be doing.  It's really the only point I'm driving.  As for my team coming to JQ, that would be the business of myself and my team, there isn't one sole reason we make our choices.  I could list  a lot of positive factors down to the point where Noodles and Stei got us on TS and talked with us, those guys are pretty stand up imo and I have a high regard for both of them in the JQ community.  Oh, and the rumor mill stated that we were paid gold and precursors...which we are still waiting for in the mail from what Stei keeps telling me...

Tonight was one of the better nights I've had in WvW in awhile, with only minimal interference from lag-spike-inducing zergs.  Again I have to give a shoutout to the Warlords of Zek, those were some awesome fights out there tonight on SoR borderlands.  Let's do it again sometime!

Coron is not Menaace in the slightest. You can actually talk to Coron about stuff other than the game. He just got tired of being polite only to have his polite words thrown back in his face. Now, he's one of us and you can't have him back. We'll call ourselves "Forum Dads".

"Forum Dads" say mean things, but don't mean anything by it. But if you say anything mean to a Forum Dad, you're in big trouble. Forum Dads frequently annoy younger posters because Forum Dads us the same cliches over and over, and ech time they still work.

"Forum Dads" do weird things to embarass you, like tell you they love you in front of all the other posters. Forum Dads always have to have the last word on a contentious issue.

And of course, and most importantly, Forum Dads rant about every subject like a qualified expert speaking to a child, using long winded points and repetition of facts and even dragging in other crap you've tried to pull on them. Forum Dads know what's up and are fresh and nasty.

Lousy kids.

And lastly, forum Dad is always right and he knows when you're full of shit and you can lie to him all you want, but he knows... and you know he knows... and he knows you know he knows... and that makes his day!


Anyways, I can vouche for AoS as well. Hard working behind the scenes guild that is the heart of JQ. It was like everything bad about MMAC got replaced with rainbows and stun guns.

Wow, haven't been on here in a few days, glad to know you guys found something to talk about!

Shout out to my SoS brethren out there. Been a rough road this week, but were starting to see how the new hierarchy sits, and have more and more guilds looking at smarter ways of playing, rather than needing to aim a numbers cannon at it. If shutting down servers moved the focus off "need more bodies lets recruit to our server" it was long overdue.

Stay positive everyone, I know it's frustrating sometimes, on all sides. Remember why we started playing WvW in the first place, because it was FUN!

Get out there and have some!

Uhh Jed doesn't have any Legendary weapons at all, and his fur is not white, and finally everyone in SF runs color coordinated based on whatever theme we pick for the night. So whoever yer talking about it is not at all Jed.

SBI and basically everyone else who was ever victimized by SoS all joined together in a kind of permanent take-back-the-night march over on JQ.  Sortof an arms-locked, strength-in-numbers thing to stand up to their bullies.

I'm kidding!  But seriously, they're all on JQ now.

SF can't just wipe zergs and be happy with it, we must always make sure we do it in style. Some themes we have had include:
Ironman Night: Red and Gold
Jesus Night: All Celestial with Gold helm
Hulk Night: All Green with Purple upper part of leggings (like shorts), also no Siege allowed except Golems (aka Gordo's), and everyone must use melee weapons only no ranged or fancy spells, HULK SMASH!
PINK ARMOR NIGHT: Solid pink, everyone must play seriously no screwing around
Oh Canada Night: Red with White, end every call in mumble or /team with 'Eh' and PM enemy commanders "Sorry" when we wipe them.

That is just a few of the more reoccurring ones, however the color scheme and or overall theme is totally up in the air and random every night.
