Very true and completely agree with your assessment of night/day coverage.   During reset Kaineng got completely ran off their borderland in a few hours against tier 3 competition.  This can't happen if they aspire to get to the tier 1.

I think I speak for those organizing on Kaineng when I say we acknowledge our weakness which was very apparent in Kaineng Borderlands. Keep in mind in other BL's (such as the one TL/Run/Meow ran) we held 2 keeps without issue during/after reset. I don't think Kaineng would have been as close (12AM) had it not been for the 80+ PPT we were bringing in that night, because every the other BLs were pulling 30 or less for most of the night (we had one borderland with nothing but a camp *cries*). The "alliance" that stationed themselves in Kaineng BL spoke of queue issues, but I cannot confirm or deny they were limited to "60" on the map as they stated officially. "Meh". Meh I say. :P


Strategically, I would not be so quick to discount the *entire* NA pop. We are only 2-3 weeks organized and relatively what you can call a "young" server as WM likes to call it -- meaning we are not "naturally" acclimated to each other. The more we collaborate and work on queue rotations and campaign metas, the more in-line we will be with other T1 servers who have had communities and organization dating months and months.

WM International (NA time) held SM the entire time, having lost almost everything else on the map. 80-90 + 50-60 + 35 + 5 = Around 190-200, which every side who was there that night will remember Kaineng hovering around. Of course, you can always watch streams for proof. I believe them when they said they were being double teamed however, but at the same time, that's the nature of the game. There is nothing "cheap" about being teamed up on, it's an honor really and they should take it as such. WM is great, but not the whole package alone. There was some bickering and such being thrown around behind the scenes, but it seems most of that has dwindled -- as once the matchups started and guilds and alliances had their chance to show their "prowess" in dedicated maps, it became very clear who had room to speak and who didn't. Naturally I think some respect was developed since and it has shown in meetings/discussions thereafter.

TL;dr NA is still getting organized as a whole, we are all new to each other and it will take some time, Oceanic crew is about the same as they were on SBI/IoJ, and they are doing fine.

We'll see you all in T1/T2 with our quaggan backpacks cause were awesome like that.

Be advised. Admission to Team [USA] is not automatic. Passing an intelligence test is required.

  You do realize, oh Mighteous One, that you have named your guild after a nation that is ranked 17th in the world for education, and applied an intelligence test to get in?

As I am a recent transfer to Kaineng I want to let you in on a little secret. For those of us that had our home destroyed we need to find a server to go to. We did not want to join T1-3 servers for the reason of bandwagon. Our reason for coming to Kaineng was to build up our guilds, form new friends, and breathe a fresh air of an underdog community rising up through the ranks of the WvW media hub. We also recognized that Kaineng has a very strong oceanic and EU presence so you guys would be able to be online when we went to sleep unlike how it has been for us on Stormbluff the last 2 months.  We came here to provide our guilds with a good environment and a good atmosphere for them to prosper and grow. If we wanted to win all the time and dominate the world we would have gone to T1-3.


We are here to Kaineng to stay, and we come in peace.

I have had a lot of fun o Kaineng, and the guildmates that came with me love it.

   We are currently voting, and it is close.

   However, Kaineng is a rocking WvW server, with TONS of growth potential.

   Anyone who would rather help to build something than jump on something already established, Kaineng is by far the best option.

   Everyone knows Kaineng is in lower tiers, and rising fast.

   When this server cracks the top tiers, it will be an EPIC battle!

   Take it form someone thats been around.

   No achievement is worth as much as when you helped to make it happen. THIS is the place it will happen.

   If there are any individual players out there, guildless, or in a guild that doesn't do WvW with you...

   Kaineng IS WvW.

  The population there is there for one thing....WvW dominance.

    The participation is close to 100% of the community.

   NO other server can make that claim.

   If WvW is your game, and you want to be a part of the rise to Glory.....Kaineng is the only real choice.

Weren't these the 12 golems that were toasted by the oil at the inner door? Or are these another set?

EDIT: Oh these are another set, since you guys took SM.

I see what you tried to do there.

We had a great night.

Also I'm way cooler than Voison.

Dedicated players are people that race through all the content as fast as possible so they can live in Orr.  They tend to bore easily.  Gee, I wonder why.

A not-so-dedicated player like myself spends time playing the game.  I take my time leveling and try to experience everything the game has to offer while working towards my goals.  I have logged nearly 850 hours, have several 80s in exotic gear and I don't have a legendary yet.  I'm not bored.  I'm obviously not a dedicated player according to Anet.

You're playing the game wrong. More rushing, less sight-seeing.

Just watched FreeLancers Video. Pretty funny to watch.

First he talks about stomping the SoR guilds one night, and how they are gonna stomp SoS guilds the current night, then he gets ganked by a rogue. Then they take an un-upgraded tower. At some point he shows the map and they have 6 or 7 objectives. He comments on running with 80 TL. (Don't think that is a zerg tho!)

TL does pretty good at Staying in a tight Ball and running their AEs, but that isn't much of a Strategy, from what I have seen. However, they seem to get rolled in Open field, by what looks to be equal numbers. Hell if they are running 80, it would be pretty hard to run more than that.

By the end of the video, IoJ has 1 objective, lost Bay, and it was called a successful raid.

I am curious what it would take to be an unsuccessful raid......maybe SoS coming through their homeworld portal and wrecking havoc in their PvE lands?

First, the title of the video is " .. Testing new build" and if you had paid attention many TL had the outmanned buff the entire night. Why sometimes certain groups of players get it and others dont is beyond me. I know it only popped on me twice but dissapeared soon after. Id love to know the variables involved in it honestly.

Second, you cant selectively ignore that both SoR and SoS were focusing us at the keep. Were not complaining though, it happens and certainly makes battles twice as epic. I would have likely done the same if i saw the opening.

Lastly, a "successful" raid for TL and many IoJ consists of the following:
-Were laughs heard?
-Did we try something new?
-Did we add data to our spreadsheets?
-When/if we wiped, do we specifically know why?
-Did we assign our science team to research a fix?
-Did we troll a TL member?
-Did we troll Arctx?
-etc

We have a list of goals for two scenarios, when we are competitively matched and have a shot as a server to take 2nd/1st, and tge weeks when due to population issues off-hour or just general "candy corn" mentality we have to make the best of it. The latter usually involves trying new metas, meeting and establishing new relations in the server, and gathering information on what is working and not working with both us and enemies.

We are just one WvW guild in the midsts of other great names on IoJ. Sadly while i feel IoJ has the regular population, the server seems more attuned to PvE content. So while there are times IoJ WvW is a ghost town it doesnt mean we give up WvW and improving efficiency.

Thats why you see on the video how excited we get when we see Tsym or Atac. They bring fresh and interesting new tactics to the scene that we dont see from others often. Its a nice fresh change from the zerg guilds.

Nuff rambling. More killing.

Btw Arctx is recruiting for Lost Shores. His women aernt as hot as TLs but theyre gamer girls nontheless :P

Lot's of fun with Tsym tonight. We just couldn't match those numbers near the camp. Did you guys get a large influx of recruits or something? We were streaming and counted over 30-40 Tsym members at times, not including the others following you, there was well over 60-70 at the camp at times.

Everyone on my stream and the 20 in the TL channel were laughing our butts off. It was epic. Let's do that more often, but earlier in the night when we don't have TL in multiple maps :)

/salute /respect. :)
