#2188790 State of WvW vs Camelot Unchained

Posted Specialz on 08 April 2013 - 02:52 AM

Not to be that guy, but you are talking about a game that hasn't been release, probably hasn't started being made yet, made by a person who has a bad history of screwing up stuff. Anybody remember how WvW sounded when it was being talked about 1.5 years ago? The point being players like you LOVE to hype up stuff that doesn't exist then complain how it disappointed you and how it screwed your life and blah blah blah and all those broken promises and junk.

Just remember that. why do I say this, because players like have to deal with players like you, when it inevitably ends up being a disappointment.

However, that's just debating with a closed ear.  Obviously, according to you, there is no chance at all.

You can forget the pep talk.  You just do what you do, yo...

What I was debating is that you used 'lack of drive' when this clearly has proven not to be the case week in and week out, for months.

That was not a 'pep talk' when you begin like that, regardless of how you try to spin it.

Some folks will always glorify the homeland while believing all other countries eat babies and cheated the system to get on top. Without a good story in which they are the hero and their opponents are scumbags, it is no fun for them. I laugh because we're all gamers and had they slightly altered the server choices, the 'scum' and the 'heroes' might be servermates and best friends. It's pathetic to think one server is filled with all the grti and balls hard workers, and the rest got the last bandwagoners... so funny.

As if there is a magical quality to one special server that attracts holy men and martyrs. Even SoS had a few good people on it. I know the hours people on my server put in. I assume everyone else does the same on the other servers. I'm not as blind as to think we're the only players who work hard. Pffft.

I knew I could count on you jumping on board without paying attention to what I took issue with. Typical. This comment is what I took issue with, the rest of the post from that person became irrelevant at that point to me because it came from this mindset.

"SoR has utterly lacked the drive to go for anything, but second place. "

Why? If you know anything about SoR and actually desire to keep it real instead of blatantly trolling, then you would know that lack of drive has nothing to do with anything.

SoR has some momentum and the same advantages SoS did when it first hit T1.   Unfortunately, to date,  SoR has utterly lacked the drive to go for anything, but second place.  

You are both ignorant and a fool. You also seem to have a complete and lack of understanding that inability != lack of drive. Are you stupid, extremely shortsighted, or what? Please tell us, inquiring minds want to know.

Know this, up until recently, the only reason SoR has even gotten to T1 is do to drive and persistence. When a server can put up such a good showing despite having 12 hours+ a day where they ticked away at less than 100ppt (up until recent transfers) for months due to low population in those time zones, your comment and all those that follow are baseless and hollow.

So you trolling bro or are you really that big of an idiot?

Actually, small teams is what established SF in GW2.  Myself, Mr Goodkat, Hoschi, and Scion, the other 3 being the main that have continually ran with the havoc squad.  I myself prefer to break off in to a 2-3 man team to make it more fair to increase the size of my epeen.  If you feel as though I'm afraid of small scale combat, you are mistaken.  I prefer getting up close and personal and watching ppl bleed to death in single downed state, or playing ping pong with my guardian and a partner guardian with dead bodies.  Feel free to message me in game.  If I'm running small teams, I'd be more than happier to throw down.  Since you don't know my history of gaming or what I actually do all the time in game, you should probably make sure you get facts straight son.

A commander leading troops, who vacillates, and sometimes fight, and sometimes runs, will cause those who follow to vacillate, sometimes fight, and sometimes run.

  When the soldiers are unsure of what the commander will do, they will hesitate and wait  to see if the commander will fight, or flee.

   Thus, any advantage of surprise and initiative will be lost even if you had it.

  Using Sun Tzu as some kind of wisdom for engaging an enemy and running is ridiculous and shows a lack of understanding of Sun Tzu.

   Basically, once you bump into the enemy zerg, you are engaged, and it is too late to apply Sun Tzu's wisdom about not engaging.

   If you are seen, and then seen to flee, you have lost the fight without a fight, and only a gross misunderstanding of Sun Tzu could twist that into some kind of military wisdom.

Im going to link you hooked on phonics...because reading comprehension does not seem to be your strong point.

[quote]I'll see the enemy, see like 30 people nearby, announce in yell, "INC (direction)"  & move towards them... wtf... they're all running [/quote]

no where did that say anything about engaging, but rather running before the fight starts..

now if you are an idiot as to fight a zerg on unfavorable terrain...perhaps you should refund w.e money your guild donated for the pin

i've seen plenty of competent commanders call for a tactical retreat to get to a better fighting position:
  • whether its pulling back inside vale when the zerg is outside
  • Pulling back to mid island  between briar/lake assults
  • or the spirals of death near sunny/crag
Hell i've been in zergs where we were clearly outnumbered, and we did a lap around briar-lake to fight in middle.(we won)  


if you seriously think that "once you see enemy zerg, only option is to engage"..please tell me what pin you are following/are, so i know what incompetent commander to avoid.

Hello Vihar,

I respectfully disagree with you. Retreating from a bigger/more powerful force (in terms of size & composition) OR avoiding the enemy is always a viable option weighing in militia and guild morale according to Sun Tzu. I know of designated guild commanders who get on WvW and all the guildies suddenly having other stuff to do because they wipe too often with him.

On another note with regards to WvW vs real world, I find the tactical and strategic (even political) mindsets of the good commanders are uncannily similar real world historical battles and wars. GW2 of course is a video game but I found that RvR or WvW games do actually employ philosophies described or practised in real world warfare to a large degree.

  Sun Tzu didn't spend his time running up to take a peek at the enemy and running away.

  That is not "subduing the enemy", is it?

  If he meant "run away", he would have said "run away".

Well yeah when the server looks to be losing they just transfer. Of course they have an amazing record. I guess the loss to BG was too much and they quit the game this time, instead of simply transferring. Gratz to PRX, masters of the bandwagon. May whatever game you move to also have free transfers also so you can join winning servers and claim to be champions.

Tell me, who really touched you in the "naughty place" to make you so butt-hurt.

Lol, so did you, there were no supporting "facts" in anything your posted, nothing independently verified or from a reliable source, just your words. Those were your opinions and his, nothing more. To take such offence at his words was mildly amusing and reminded me of two kids in the playground being slap happy.  

As an example you posted the following with regard to giving money to guilds when they transfer to a server your guild is on.

And to my dictionary there is difference between "buying" and "helping".

Why should everyone be using your dictionary? Is it published? Can I get a copy? Thats your definition and frame of reference for those words and their context, others will take a different position. That is their right. None of that is factual, its just a different point of view.

Seriously, I don't know why you got so worked up over Mike, he is a kitten really. His trolling is so obvious and in your face that its best to just smile and walk by:)

Now, if you really want a professional to lay into you I am happy to do so. I can twist you words in so many ways it will make your head feel like its on a swivel.  I am in trolling retirement at present and just make the odd comment in passing but for a fee, or is that just a helping contribution? I am not sure... I can give your posts a "good seeing to" if you want.

#2183094 T3 - Dragonbrand,Yak's Bend & SoS

Posted coronbale on 23 March 2013 - 09:41 PM

In all honesty, there was a brief meeting between me and AFS the first week we were here.  In that meeting, we saw that the janky ass ELO system GW2 uses will do weird crap if we win by a lot after losing an wracking up our cumulative decent modifier.  What we did was slow our decent rather than suddenly jack our decent modifier to a 7.0, to give us time in T3 to rebuild and train.

wAPercent = wAScore / (wAScore + wBScore)
wAGlickoScore = (sin((wAPercent – 0.5) * Pi) + 1) * 0.5

What we didnt know, was the SoS militia were one non-win away from quitting, running sobbing into the arms of their moms, while cursing the luck of having been stuck with mean people who think further out than their own personal experience.  It is to those people I say this.

"suck it up cupcake, quit your damn crying, or go back to WoW"

Seriously, if you were on SoS, and you were ONE EFFING NON-WIN away from quitting and bawling like a little baby, not only do you not have my sympathies, consider the whole thing intentional and done just to spite you.

(BTW I never said loss, I said non-win.  We came in second you prissy little whiners, you would have thought learning how to NOT come in first would be on your list of things to prepare for.  But hey, keep blaming us, and get your shots in while were still here!)

To the SoSers that did NOT instantly blame and point fingers with their bottom lip quivering.  There are several AMAZINGLY stable and healthy teams remaining on SoS.  If your guild has a policy of blame and deflection, get into one of these guilds who are working to make the server better!


#2179772 T3 - Dragonbrand,Yak's Bend & SoS

Posted chuckles79 on 15 March 2013 - 09:50 PM

There seems to be a lot of haters out there that seem to enjoy SoS's stumble.

Which is bizarre since a majority of the people who "stacked" our server are now on other servers.  What's left are the people who are willing to try and turn around a bad situation.

Our goal, is to be the first server that reached number one, stumbled, THEN comes back.

We all have to admit that we like where we are right now.  We're learning how to put numbers on the board with fewer people to do it with.  Dragonbrand may not have the open field tactics, but they are masters of siege warfare.  It gives us a lot of room to perfect the skills we are going to need if we hope to rebuild.

I have nothing bad to say about Yak's Bend, but you guys don't seem to have much to distinguish yourselves and playstyles yet.  Just stay in the match and hopefully SoS and DB can better your WvW ground game.

I guess those videos with a group of four guys sending a whole zerg packing never happened....

Irrelevant counterpoint to be honest. I saw those videos too, and I can tell you that one competent player with a gap closer is all it would take to stop the gc staffies from wrecking the zerg. The fact that they actually got away with that is more of a testament to how bad that zerg was rather than how good they were as players.

14kish health glass cannon ele like the guy in some of the videos do not have any success against good or even decent players. For every 1 video you see of a glass cannon staff ele pwning, there are 10,000 instances where they get 2 shot that never make it into a POV vid.
