He's actually clicking on skills?  Is that FGJ on autocast?

True Dragonbrand small squad tactics: Take a tower or supply area, build a crapload of arrow carts and hold.
Heh, nice vid.

Izzy is a great guy, but he should try that out in tier 1 NA.

  I'd like to see THAT video.

No, he is on SBI, i think. He was facing SoS and CD, its tier 4.

I don't know what Izzy's role in GW2 is, but he pretty much single-handedly ruined GW1 in the span of about a year by producing non-stop trash metas that nearly everyone hated, causing an exodus of competitive players. The guy seriously does not seem to have any ability to learn from past mistakes, and it looks to me like the same formula of ridiculous random buffs and new game mechanics to push meta shifts is now being used. Which, of course, will only increase the speed of decent before the airplane crashes into the mountain.

I think that Izzy and the crew are probably looking for things to develop the game taht do not involve gear progression, or progressino that gives an experienced player a big advantage over a new player.

  So....they have to answer "What am I playing for?" without giving the answer "better gear".

Yeah, roaming in T1 is not for the faint of heart.  It can be challenging and frustrating at times, but also great fun.  I wish more groups tried it!

More groups wont  try until more groups try it . . . vicious circle.  You just gotta do what you find fun and hope to run into like minded.  JQ has a ton of roamers but maybe a bit more of the casual nature. Tight small scale gank groups like RUN and Pro tend to slaughter us but we keep on trying, you know, for death and glory.  :D

Short of a spvp gear system, a compromise, and / or some way of recycling pve gear to wvw gear, there is no hope, at least for me.

As a former top 100 GvG player and hardcore HAer, I hate Izzy with a passion; as he single handedly ruined my PvP experience.  I'm sure most high tier GW 1 PvPers hate his guts too.  I'm on CD, and if I ever see him I'm killing the crap out of him.
