#2151774 T1 - BG, JQ, SoS

Posted Vihar on 27 January 2013 - 06:59 AM

Somebody please remind BG that they are supposed to be dead in this match.

   They seem to have forgotten, or never got the memo.

  [HB]...I hate you.

  Thank you.


#2116711 The Gate, The Rall, The Janthir - Month Long Matches Have Started!

Posted Blackehawke on 13 December 2012 - 12:29 PM

Oh god....that fight in Blackgate Borderlands.....i think HIRE was the only guild out in force that night....we fielded around 70-80 players but with lack of coverage on all the other borderlands: ICoa, Urge, and KnT managed to bring their forces to BG BL and triple team us haha....fml

We still managed to hold though and we got a ton of exp from those 3 hour fights...

But the most important thing is. We had a ton of fun :3

Looking forward to fight against the guilds of BG and SoR tomorrow :)


#2116474 SBI - How'd he get in with walls doors intact ?

Posted Tali on 13 December 2012 - 05:17 AM

Those SBI on SoS BL tonight were aware and reported him. He logged off soon after this SS.

The suggestion to Anet isn't that well thought out however. I personally haven't seen this guy prior to the past week or so. He could very well be a new transfer. Even if HE isn't, there have been cases in the past of people transferring, to exploit on another server just to tarnish their name. If your suggestion is implemented, not only will you have people on your server tarnishing your name, but you'll also have them losing you points. All a server can do is spam report the person, there is no magic button that allows us to vote kick them off of the island. Hell we don't even have a button to report for exploiting, we report him for botting, as well as put in bug reports and hope Anet can put 2 and 2 together. We can only hope that with two servers mass reporting him, that he gets banned.

#2097696 BG vs. SoR vs. IoJ - The New Content Hangover

Posted Kreamy on 27 November 2012 - 04:23 AM

The notion that there is  (or should be) some kind of convention on who can acceptably be assaulted and who can’t is absurd. Screw the math, screw extrapolation on ratings - If territory can be taken from an opponent, take it. Calling a server out for attacking the “wrong” side is asinine.

There was a scenario last night (oceanic time) where IOJ were positively pounding us in EB and had a large force holding us at bay from pushing into other areas on the map. At this time BG was sitting 3rd on the table, with the lowest ppt. Now, is there anything wrong with IOJ’s tactic? Not at all. Does it mean they are playing for 2nd place? Not necessarily, and it doesn’t bloody well matter. It made for some good fighting is all I know.

There is a certain irony in the fact that there is less posturing on the battlefield than there is on the forums.

That would be awesome if SoS does this week.  If SoS can move from T2 and take T1 then the NA bracket has achieved a lot of balance.  

Though it might be far more from this last week's number attrition than all the work people tried to do behind the scenes.  There is a lot of irony in that truth, but the game might be healthier for it.


/salute

Don't sell your work short. If it wasn't for the behind the scenes work done by players, There wouldn't be as many servers up or close to tier one.

Posted RivenVII on 14 November 2012 - 11:31 PM

Just checking in to say good fights last night (1600-0130 Pacific) in EBG. SM ninjas, towers flipping all over the place. That is the kind of WvW that keeps me coming back.

Once again, 2v1 doesn't matter. I don't care about it and neither should you. One Word: Strategy. Learn to deal.

Please keep server drama off these forums. Take that to your own community sites. Frankly, I understand that every server has "that guy", but it has no place here. This is a match thread and it is a place for sportsmanship and nostalgia over good battles. Post scores and screenshots, not drama. Next time you look down to press post, ask yourself: Is this about the match, or should this be on my own server's forums? Live by this rule and the mods won't need to have a field day in our match threads. It's really getting old.

But anyways... question BG guys and girls:

I'm still wondering what happened to BG? So strong out of the gate. now going the IoJ route, it seems. Some are saying boredom, but I think there's more to it.

Is it because now that the turle and portal bombs have been countered, there's nothing left in the tank? Some are saying it's because they're getting 2v1 by SBI and JQ, but aren't we ALL getting 2v1? I know that we're fighting 2 servers at once. I'm pretty sure SBI is fighting 2 servers at once as well. It only looks like a double team because neither side is helping your server, but trust me... they ain't helping us either.

Some are saying it's coverage. Pardon me, but didn't BG have awesome coverage until thursday night of week 1 when they lost the lead?

I see some mighty fine warrior guilds on BG giving it their all every fight... seems like the rest of the server quit when they lost. So much respect for the BG guilds still fighting. You guys rocked. Just wish your population would back you guys up and give you all the support you need.

The same thing happened to IoJ, like the ride up to T1 built this wave of momentum, and then it just washed away... I'm not trolling, I'm serious. I was eating dirt in that first matchup and BG killed me more times than any other server ever had. What's the deal?

I'll give you my take. Three weeks ago in our first match, BG was coming off two snorefests, and was hungry. We came out firing, and DEYs brought their turtle tactic out in full force that caught everyone by surprise (even prompting a whole thread on the subject). Then those despicable and unfortunate incidents with the orb happened, which pissed WM off to the point where they probably took a few days off. So week 1 was a combination of 1) excitement for BG on being in a T1 match, 2) a new tactic that took time to figure out and counter and 3) WM and maybe others in their time zone saying screw this for a couple days.

But then SBI's superior coverage and organization overcame, and BG lost the lead, which I think demoralized the average player who tends to zone in, find a commander icon and run to that spot to follow them around. I think it's that kind of player that has been missing the past two weeks. The "casual" player if you will. When you give it 110% all week just to realize you're still outgunned, it can crush your morale and desire to even bother when you're more of the casual type.

There's also been some attrition in the player base. A couple NA guilds officially retired, some of our Oceanic players have been busy with life and are taking a break. The bottom line is, the server is tired, frazzled and pretty disorganized right now. But we're working on that as I type this. BG just needs a little time to get their stuff together.

Edit - Oh I had another thought that I forgot to mention. I'm betting that there were a fair amount of bandwagoners that followed the TA guilds to BG, and were present during the first match. Once they realized we weren't going to be HoD 2.0, they bailed, since all that type of player is interested in is always being on the winning team.

It is not a troll. It is a prediction. I predict that the TA guilds will leave Blackgate for greener pastures. There is no doubt DEYS will soon follow suit. If they move I hope they go to SoS. If they went to SoS it would make tier 1 a heap of fun for all 3 servers. Blackgate would then drop back to tier 3 eventually, and IoJ and SoR would squobble over 1st place to get rights to go into tier 1 and swap with SBI, JQ or SoS at the end of the week. It would make sense on all parts. It would even up the standings a fair bit.

DEYS have no plans on leaving blackgate. In fact HB started recruiting NA players, so we can cover more ground, instead of waiting for NA guilds to tranfer here. We are here to stay and build on blackgate. Dont forget when we tranfered here BG was a Tier 3/4 server. Anything above that and BG have improved.
We are still getting all the fights we could ever dream of, havent been in a Q for weeks now, and some really cool people on the server.


#2068273 Coron's guide to enjoying WvW

Posted coronbale on 08 November 2012 - 09:40 AM

Greetings future or present WvWer,

If you have stepped into a WvW match, you have probably been more confused than fired up with the spectacle you were confronted with.  When you read the "team" chat, your confusion deepens.

"GET OVER HERE"  "ZERG INC"  "DUMB COMMANDERS DONT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING"  "SM GONE, YOU ALL SUCK"  "OUR SERVER IS TERRIBLE"  "ITS ALL [person organizing the team]'s FAULT"  "ITS YOU'RE NOT YOUR"

Here is a one stop shopping to how to enjoy your WvW time.  Its step by step, so no matter your WvW experience you can fill in the holes of your education.

1)  Join a WvW guild if your serious about learning.  Doesn't need to be the #1 guild, any that you see in there rolling together will do.  Don't get pinned down to just one, roll with them for a few days, then try another.  Find one that fits your play style!  This is the step a LOT of people gloss over, and it leads to terrible times in WvW.  You really have NO IDEA what you are missing by not joining with a team that is coordinating portal flanks and counter tactics in a voice chat server!

2)  Ask questions!  This ties into 1 because if you ask it in /t or /m your going to get a million answers, and some insults as well.  Guilds are a great way to get the noob questions out of the way, and get to the good stuff!

3)  NEVER NEVER NEVER play for the score.  Your in furious combat with an enemy team.  They are juking and flanking for position, but your enemy commander makes a great move to win the day.  Battle finishes, bags collected.  Does it really matter if your up 100k or down 100k at that point?  Playing for the score means you will ONLY enjoy WvW if your server is up in points.  You will ONLY enjoy the game when winning, and turn into a giant Dbag while losing.  That and most of what happens in WvW with relation to the score has nothing to do with any 1 person or guild.  Your job is the battle at your feet, let the score sort itself out!

This also goes for when your winning.  Just because your team happens to be up in points, does not mean its time to gloat and rub peoples faces in it.  Respect and sportsmanship attitude goes a LONG way in building a reputation as a great WvWer!

4)  If you go into WvW alone, you lose the right to talk crap on the people who are organizing the team.  Even if they do it wrong, they are doing it.  Support them, and ignore people who want to shut them down.  Other side of the coin is true.  If your getting badmouthed by a commander, don't follow him!  Find a leader you can follow.

5)  Learn how to LOSE.  When you take a loss, you are in an extraordinary learning situation.  Getting angry and deflecting blame to everyone around you causes you to take nothing away from the loss.  Learning from every defeat will make you a force to be reckoned with.  Tied with this, is find a guild that can lose correctly as well.  Again, if your guild is only good when winning, and turns nasty when losing, find another one!

Some food for though here, every matchup is 1v1v1, which means technically there are 2 loser servers, and 1 winner.  Do you really think 2/3 of the population in WvW should be miserable at all times?

You'll notice nothing in this list speaks to what siege equipment to buy, where to place it, what points are important, what guilds are winners, or anything of the sort.  Without the proper attitude you will be miserable in there in any situation other than a complete shut out of the enemy.  If you haven't guessed, success in WvW is VERY complex, and often times the more skilled teams and commanders can take a loss from factors they (and you) have no control over.  If it rains on your football game, do you cuss out your coach?

Follow these steps, and you'll start to see just how AMAZING this game can be!  PVE has only a few weeks at most to offer you, alts can only take you so far, WvW will last for the life of the game.  No match is the same, no map is the same, no battle the same.

From myself and Tsym, we hope you enjoy your time in WvW!

Posted Babui on 08 November 2012 - 12:27 PM

To correct the misconception, we moved away from BG because Urge didn't want us on there. It came to a point when we were in the borderlands to play in WvW and choco someone someone would team chat

"Why are you guys still here? Haven't found a server yet? Need help? The heroes don't want any drama at all that's why we moved 2 weeks before SBI won Tier 1. We're we a significant factor for SBI winning Tier 1? You guys can answer that, what we bring on the table is whatever is fun for us. We're having fun in WvW, when BG had a massive lead that served as a challenge for us, wherever we were we'll show up, perform, play and most importantly, have fun.

We don't tell people to GTFO of a server, because we don't feel like we have the authority to say that, fortunately we don't have the same mentality as URGE, because if we did we'd have heroes moving to Urge. ;)
