What you're seeing now are the fruits of your labors. You wanted to be the most stacked server in the game. Well you got it. Now you've completely destroyed SoS's interest in WvW. Blackgate is young at out for blood but they don't have a chance either. It's only a matter of time before they get tired of being outnumbered 20 to 1. So there you'll be, king of a hill players no longer care for. And all the while knowing that while your predecessors worked for it, you got there the easy way. Congrats and enjoy.
Disclaimer: The following post is my opinion and in no way represents the opinions of anyone else on JQ, unless they directly state otherwise. The leaders of JQ would probably ask me not to post this, but I can't stay quiet on this anymore. This is not a troll post. It's how I feel. I've held this back for 10 weeks now. I figured once JQ got in a better position, SoS would finally show some respect and give props, but that hasn't happened... so...
There's a good breakdown on the official forums of how much SoS won by for each of the weeks. 6 of them were over 50,000, 3 over 100,000.
Go take a look. If you can't find it, tell me and I'll go grab it. Or look it up yourself. You guys trashed 2 legitimate T1 servers by large amouns for 2/3 of the matchups. You guys were stacked. There's no shame in it! Good on you, SoS for having all your ducks in a row.
Let's not revise hostory here. It's just a game. We can all admit to these little things here and there. SoS was stacked. JQ got even stackeditidier during the Guild Transfer Arms Race, which began with SoS bragging about 3 new Euro guild transfers it got, and ME whining about it so hard that my own server told me to relax.
I can go find that for you to, or you can look it up.
Facts are, all the braggadocia and chest thumping and 'world champions' talk pissed of a lot of people including PRX a former SoS guild. You can't have it both ways. You can't have a server spamming guild recruitment threads, bragging and laughing and high fiving, posting page after page of explanations and 'strategy' showing how smart they are and how dumb SBI and JQ are... and NOT expect folks to hit back.
Endless 3 page discussion of how your awesome strategies and Immortals Builds and superior theory craft and this and that... reams of it! So much that we choked on it, direct addresses to SBI and JQ on how we 'just didn't get it' and needed to 'do your own recruiting and beat us' and 'stop whining and play harder' and how SoS was like the pros and we were newcommers to T1... all of it.
You guys accomplished your goal and stepped on a few toes doing it. Now, we will accomplish our goal. If you don't like it, stop us. If you can't stop us, let me finally be the one giving SoS some patronising and pedantic 'advice':
JQ stayed in T1 by being better with less. We treated our PuGs and small guilds like friends, not 'militia'. The exact statement was "Small Guilds, PuGs and Solos are the heart and soul of JQ and our greatest strength." End your top down tyranny and let everyone play their way and have fun. If you don't, now it's a job without the winning you have become so accustomed to. You'd better learn this or SoS will fall.
I hope you prove me wrong in the comming weeks. I want to fight SoS. I like fighting SoS. I respect some of your players and guilds a hell of a lot, but jeez, someone in charge over there needs to put a muzzle on all this excuse making, man up and fight back.
