The game is already getting stale. WvW is the same thing over and over again. There is no end content. You get to level 80, get exotic gear, kill hundreds of people in WvW, games over.

#1957325 Why do Tier 1 Cultural Weapons cost 9000+ karma ?

It's because you can transmute the appearance on to any weapon you like (of the same type). Like that T3 cultural weapon but don't like the stats? Get a T1 and transmute the appearance onto that ugly exotic whatever that you're lugging around.

The reason both servers are up so high isn't due to simply numbers. On SoS, we don't give up. Even those 20 guys outnumbered 5:1 keep on fighting, when we are spawn camped we keep pushing until eventually something gives. We might not have the brightest bunch strategy wise, or the richest, or most geared, but we sure as hell have a tenacious group of individuals that just don't give up.

I believe the reason for this is all the shit we've had kicked out of us in the past (NSP, DB, MG, GoM, CD, ET, HoD all have beaten us down some like ET/NSP many many times). The majority of the quitters have left to 'greener pastures'.

You're up not because of your funky spirit but simply because during the morning here in the US you guys are active and able to cap everything.  If you do mediocre to poor at night time and amazing all morning, you're going to win against servers who doing good in the evening and are non existent in the morning.  You're up in the 2nd seed simply because of the hours you play.

Unfortunately for you the 1-4 servers all have decent morning crews.  This means you'll get obliterated during the evening hours and have a rough go of it even in the morning (because as you stated, everything is upgraded, manned, and siege deployed against you).

You have reached your effective maximum potential at this stage.  You need a large, organized (read: Alliance) to be able to push against the prime times of the top 4 (HoD/SBI/JQ/ET) servers.  Unfortunately most of these are already in those top 4 servers.  Without it, you'll simply continue to get ground under the heel of the top 4 servers (whichever one comes down off the top seed).  Attempting to attract guilds during this phase, ("Come transfer to our server and get owned each night while we build up!!!") isn't going to be very successful.

Its a shame you guys couldnt stick it out like the rest of ioj and sos.  When we pull this thing together, those that have been here since the start will have a huge  sense of server pride.

The only way you're going to "pull it together" is if you get a large influx of organized NA Prime Time players to be able to go up against HoD/SBI/JQ/ET.  The key word there being organized.

Instead IoJ and SoS, because they take everything uncontested during the morning, is pretty much doomed to either:

A. Trying to throw their matches when they in the 2nd seed in the hopes they go down a bracket like Blackgate did.
B. Continuously face SBI/JQ/ET (whomever goes down to the second seed) which will just crush you score wise beyond any hope.

You won't ever stay in the lower seeds very long because no other servers can win against your off hours (to NA) play times.  So the result of your pride (in your server) is basically going to lead you to an intractable situation at best and a miserable one at worst.
