I have to admit that I've been shocked by the amount of transfers only weeks after free transfers have ended.  Of course, BG's recruiting "war chest" was an unforeseen development, but it set the new model on how servers recruit entire guilds.

  It's kind of like recruiting a professional sports team, I guess, to lure them to your city.

JQ doesn't really have anything to worry about unless numbers suddenly nose dive from boredom or infighting develops. I laughed when weeks ago someone made a serious proposal to setup a fund to help transfer guilds to SoS, and it's even funnier now if that's what BG has taken to. Bringing gold, a lot of gold, into the equation only increases the likelihood of a drama induced flameout.

There is a joke in there somewhere.  Sorry, even I won't touch that one

I think the guilds moving to BG chose to go there. I don't think the gold is what lured them. Most likely, when BG heard they were transferring, they took up a collection to try and help them out.

It would be great if a few of those guilds would clear this up, because it kinda sucks when a server gets bashed with baseless claims of using gold to buy guilds.

And how come it's always someone with an SoS tag doing the bashing? JQ gets guilds, we're evil. BG gets guilds, they bought them. Only SoS making these claims. Why?

I mean seriously, BG is about to come up and be our main competition and no one is slinging stuff back and forth between JQ and BG. I don't even see much of SoR talking junk.

I don't think he was trying to stir up drama but he might be unaware this gold for guilds campaign is nothing new.  Seems to me the remaining guilds on Sea of Sorrows have gone MIA in these forums which is intentional.

SoR does their trolling over on the official forums where they have 24/7 TWoll coverage.

This is all my doing. I take full credit, where the hell is my statue?

Also WvW isn't child birth, graduation, master's thesis, cancer, a promotion, first love, the presidency, a trip to the moon, a trip to mars, a trip to uranus, sunset, sunrise, a meteor shower, The Northern Lights, a bag of Northern Lights, a fine scotch, two girls at the same time, or Nutella.

Why so serious?

I have to admit the whole "war chest" thing was scuttlebutt (never confirmed by anyone), but whether or not it existed is irrelevant to the fact that it's now a valid tactic to pick up guilds who may not be fitting in with their servers anymore.

The first guilds that Transferred off of SoS (FoE and Agg. FoE and LotD/AA have connections, Agg has a fully levelled guild on BG) ended up talking to a former ally on BG. They settled on BG and then transferred over paying everything out of pocket.

The MERC, ND, and later, AoI rumors of transferring swirled around, and after talks with Foe, Agg, and some BG people they decided to transfer over funding for the most part out of pocket. There were worries that they may not have enough gold to transfer everyone over in a reasonable amount of time and thus some guilds decided to give them a hand. I don't have any hard numbers, but I can guarantee that it's nowhere near 300 gold, let alone the 2k gold for each guild rumors that have been going around.

So it is no "warchest", it's just done by guilds that don't want to see MERC lose members because they don't have enough gold.

If it were any other server, I can assure you the same thing would have been done.

tl;dr: We didn't buy guilds, guilds followed guilds who followed former allies.

Not a single AoI guild recieved gold from anyone on Blackgate to entice a transfer. We did ask what the possibility of helping us with transfers however, and we still have not received any money to do it. We're paying out of our pockets.

Is there any truth to the rumor that there were photos of Jerico engaged in illicit activities while on the campaign trail and that said photographs were used to sway the decision of the destination of Agg or did they do it for a Klondike Bar?

I cannot confirm or deny those rumors however I can clarify that no transferring guilds got access to, or otherwise received Klondike Bars from the Blackgate reserve.
