#2134170 Sea of Sorrows - An Organized Community for WvW

Posted Kurthos on 03 January 2013 - 11:35 AM

Sea of Sorrows has traveled a long road up to this point. We've had multiple matches with close calls as we climbed the WvW ladder to the very top rung. And there we've sat, at the top of Tier 1, for a solid five weeks thus far. No single guild is responsible for our success. We did this through community, hunger for competition, and most importantly, server wide organization. Sea of Sorrows is looking for like minded guilds who are interested in coordination on a higher level of play.



What Sea of Sorrows Offers
  • Bi-weekly Guild Leader Meetings: If you're interested in sitting in and listening to get an idea of how we operate as a server, send me a PM.
  • Community Based Events: Examples can be seen here, and here.
  • ​Strong NA and Oceanic Coverage: While we certainly have holes in coverage here and there, we have arguably the strongest Australian presence in the world. That being said, we lack players during NA, SEA, and EURO time slots. Guilds like [MERC], [AFS], and [DiE] are second to none during the AUS time zones. Our NA players are mostly made up of organized guilds and about half as much Militia as the other time zones. If you're an NA player looking for a change in scenery and high level play, Sea of Sorrows is for you.
  • Tight-knit Guild to Militia relationship: Our server is made up of a mix of medium to small sized guilds and dedicated militia forces. We would not be where we are without them.
  • No Queue times!
  • Cross-guild Training: ​We hold multiguild training whenever we come up with new and interesting tactics. An example would be the trademark [ATac] Guardian Immortal builds showcased in the two videos below.
