before we left NS we were lucky to get 20% of our guilds in at once. I'd rather play and loose than sit on the sidelines and win.

Incidentally, maybe they should consider the Battleground Europe solution.

In that game, when there are too many people to draw, it prioritizes enemies.  Sometimes it will look like you're alone fighting the entire German army because it couldn't render everyone, so it rendered enemies first.  It's not a perfect solution, but I think it's better than "I'm chasing one guy; why did I just die" (or the old EVE variant, "oh look there's 500 enemies and the server just crashed").

There was someone on our TS yesterday who said that the enemy prioritizing was what Anet was trying for but apparently that doesn't work if allies are already loaded in. For example when I run into a keep that a battle is taking place at I'll see all the enemies and no allies but when I am running with a group the allies would be loaded in and I would be able to see them but I will not see the 30 enemies that we run into until someone from TS yells that they are hitting us and by that point its too late. Many of the battles we fight seem to be by who hits who and not who has more numbers since if you know they are there you can just blanket AOE the whole area.

basically the reason that we swapped. I will let you guys come to your own decision but that seemed to be the best choice for us.

Agreed I consider blackgate one of the biggest potential threats. I believe that they can stand up neck to neck with any server out there during NA primetime. I am sure HoD players will say the same thing. Its only a matter of time until you guys can pull up a strong Oceanic following like those on ET and HoD and then I would be scared to face you.

The battles I had last night against blackgate were some of the most tactical I saw in WvW in a while. They set up catapults and trebs in spots that until then I thought only we knew of. They were able to send strike teams to hit our Dolyaks and try to starve out some of our keeps which ended up keeping 10-15 players on dolyak duty for many hours while our doors were getting rammed. There were many great battles that I can't name them all.

I have tons of respect for your determination against the odds that you guys had against you and I think you are one of the most fun servers to play against even if you don't win all the time.
