In Topic: WvW rating is being reset on Friday

  The only potential problem I see with this is high powered servers beating up on lowly servers in the first few weeks.

Actually, another problem would be certain servers throwing their matches in that week so they get put into lower tiers.

Now, I'm not pointing any fingers, but I'm sure we all remember what happens when a bunch of people go to a low tier server and end up inflating its population to the point where they have double the players that the other two servers have combined.

The only reason I can think of that these people would do that would be because they like to PvD and they like to win against people who have zero chance.

So, sadly, even if as little as a few guilds on the more evenly matched servers decide to take the week off, it'll result in them getting knocked down to an 'easier' tier.

Ah, so that's where Kaineng got the habit from then. Either that or they use special squads of ex-DR transferees to do the dirty work.

Nah, they got it from PvDing for a month against servers with maybe a quarter of their population at best.

They'd just hurl people at objectives because that's all they had to do, and it was near impossible to get a foothold because as soon as something flipped, forty bored Kaineng would just appear out of nowhere because they had nothing better to do.

Would've been funny if they had gotten to a tier where they were evenly matched in numbers, then have the free transfers ending resulting in yet another mass exodus from the curren flavor of the month server.

Anyone else find this kinda funny that AoE nerfing will mostly be affecting classes that Anet really has no idea what they're doing with?

They seemed to be perfectly happy with thieves, mesmers, and guardians, at least.

Whats War Machine going to do when they get to the higher tiers and actually have resistance ?  Run away to a lower tier server again ?

Probably, though free transfers are going to come to a close--between the WvW update in Feb and the Guesting feature coming at the end of this month.

If they do this and the free transfers pop up right after, limiting the number of taggers along, they could get stuck in a low tier server where the day crew are horribly inexperienced and lose everything warmachine PvD's overnight.  Which would be hilarious.

I find the scaling of the healing stat to be solo poor, that I feel it isn't worth investing in.

Healing scales the same as Power.
