Epic Tales of WvW Glory

15 November 2012 - 07:40 PM

I feel it's time to bring a little positivity to this particular subforum, so I'm starting this thread for WvWers to post their epic battle stories. Whether it's something you did, your opponents did, your team did or anything else that made you go "Wow, that was awesome!" - post it here. There's nothing like a good war story.

The following is a cross-post from the GW2 forum on the matchup of Devona's Rest, Ferguson's Crossing and Kaineng. For those who don't know Devona has been wrecking the last few matches, and we have pretty much only been fighting each other since release. Still, sometimes your enemy can surprise you. For those wondering, I was playing my Necro for both accounts.

"I’ve had some great times in WvW this week. Mad props to both Fergies and Kains on being great opponents. We’ve had some pretty gnarly zergs completely wiped out by great defenses and a whole lot of “wtf just happened.” I’d like to share a couple of my favorite moments in the last couple days.

A little Asuran Thief (I think Kain, though he could of been a Fergie) harassing our zerg like nothing I’ve ever seen before. It was incredibly frustrating, but man did he pull it off like a champ. He’d appear, down someone, and bounce. Recovered from multiple stuns and immobilizes just to slip away and come back minutes later to repeat the same action. At first it was just a nuisance, but over the course of a half hour or so it really started to take its toll. Eventually, we were just outside a tower and were killing that Champion grub, and still this thief was relentless. Other enemy players came and went, most died, but not this little guy, you could only even see him when he was mid-gank. At some point during this fight that thief managed to pull 5-10 of us away from the zerg, still harassing, still impossible to catch or kill. And then for some reason we see him over the hill, staring at us. At this point, we wanted him dead. Beyond dead, we wanted to kill him so hard his toon un-leveled all the way to level 1 – I’m pretty sure he knew this, we advanced on him hard. As soon as we give chase he turns and runs, not stealthing this time mind you, and leads a good half of our force right into a large group of invaders across the bridge, right in front of another tower. We were decimated, our forces didn’t have the strength to take either of the towers (though we did take out the grub eventually), and it was all due to the efforts of one incredibly annoying Asuran Thief. Props to you, nameless invader.

The second story happened last night, and it was a moment of personal pride and fail all in one. Our zerg just stopped an assault on Durios, and recapped the Umberglade Supply Camp just east of it. All but myself left the supply camp, and I stuck around to try and fortify the camp with a Ballista that had just dropped off the Guild Supervisor. I drop it next to the supply and start building on my own. It was around 60% complete when I look up and see a horde of Kains looking at me menacingly. I keep building, but it doesn’t take long for the first Kain to charge in (naked with a greatsword, I might add) and start attacking my precious ballista. It’s about this moment when all hell breaks loose, it’s just me, a few NPC guards and a half-built ballista verses 10-15 Kains hell bent on wrecking my face. I’m going in and out of DS like a boss, I see someone fall and manage to pull off an execution, trying my best to fear people off my ballista and still try to build it all at the same time. I knew if I could get it up I could rain down at least some death, and I wasn't about to give up that mission. The next kain falls right at the feet of the ballista, and someone was already trying to rez, so I fearbomb and execute. I know I won’t survive much longer, but the fight goes on. Finally I see a third down, try my best to get the execute but fall short and get put down myself. I’m promptly executed and swarmed, only to see my precious ballista destroyed before it could ever be born, as I lay lifeless on the ground. So while I held out longer than expected, and I ultimately failed horribly, for a few amazingly glorious minutes I soloed a Kaineng Zerg."

Post your stories of epic accomplishments or epic failure, and please remember to keep it civil - this is a happy thread for boasting and prop giving.
