#2201901 T1 WvW: The Big Three Olympians

Posted Vihar on 14 May 2013 - 01:50 PM

On the whole, I am having a blast in WvW right now, fighting as the underdog in WvW.

   I am not sad to see fair weather warriors disappear, either. I am OK with that.

  The only two issues I am having right now that pisses me off are;

1) JQ zergs break and run. This really irritates me. However, this is a natural side effect, I think, of JQ not having large guilds that form the core of our zergs. Guild zergs are better than PuG zergs. Thats just life, you have to accept it.

2) I am happy as long as we are ticking 120+. That means I have somewhere I can go, get into a fight, and have some friends and allies around me.
   Ticking 60 PPT and stuff like that just means everyone quit, and I am looking at facing 1 vs 40 every fight if I go to any map. This happens from time to time, and since I only play to WvW, it means that I just turn off the computer and go do something else.

   All I want is a good fight somewhere I can join in on.  Damn the score, and damn the quitters.

I think most of the "SBI transfers" are OK with being called that.

   We are kind of like a military unit, having been through a lot together, ups and downs, conflicts and camaraderie....and what server we are on is just the flag we fight for....but "SBI Guys" is the patch on our left shoulder.

  At least, that's the way I feel about it, with my [SF], [DA], and other brothers from other mothers.

   At any rate, I don't think we find it offensive. It is part of our legacy and our story.

#2198068 Annoying Orr mobs - What's the point?

If you're having problems in Orr I feel bad for you son, Guild Wars 2 has got 99 problems but Orr ain't one...

I think Indo got the better of everyone on this entire forum. He makes a few posts and the entirety of SF's forum warrior squad enters the fray and ol' Digi-tard over here makes a long ass post about people hating TW liked by the entirety of JQ.

You even managed to get Kelo out of his den asking for 1v1s.

How can you not like TW?

#2193167 Sea of Sorrows - The Comeback Kid [Recruitment]

Sea of Sorrows - The Comeback Kid

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 then we fell right back down again. To no less than precisely where we began.

Six months has changed a lot. New tactics, new experiences and new faces - not least from now being able to see who you are actually fighting half the time. Through it all, Sea of Sorrows has found new resolve, stronger and bolder than ever before. You may have struck us down, but because of that we have become more powerful than you could have ever imagined.

We will not bore you to tears with the minutia - instead, we shall show you our resolve and focus. Here is a picture of our battle-hardened leaders plotting the downfall of our enemies:

Here too is a picture of our crack troops waging war and laying waste to our foes:

Yes, that is correct. We have embraced the idea that WvW is actually supposed to be enjoyable, not just a second occupation. Long gone are the days of needing to stay on for another two hours because you're behind on ppt and you have that coverage gap. Roll on the days when you spend another four hours in there anyway just because it was actually good fun and the "I'll go to bed after we flip this next tower" strategy just didn't work.

Sea of Sorrows has even embraced those which other "communinty-focused" worlds pushed to the side: Those who are inclined to PvE, those indecisive PvX folk, and even the rare and endanged PvP species. They are ALL welcome into our community. We do not believe in "All calls" or "gear checks" anymore. We have created a community that is accepting to any and all players.

It is because of this community foundation, that we are doing quite well in T4. So whats the problem then? Well, we're doing a little bit too well. Realistically, we're facing a situation where, at best, we are going to bounce between T3 and T4 - being too strong for one, but not strong enough for the other. At worst, we just end up with rather lengthy stays in T3. We don't really mind winning or not, but if we're going to be thrust up a tier, we'd at least like to be competitive to ensure an enjoyable fight between the worlds.

We would like to field more active WvWers across all prime-times (NA, SEA and EU); ideally bringing in guilds who enjoy all aspects of GW2 and are happy to support the server community. We may be underestimating here, but we consider underestimating how many are required to create a competitive match more favorable than bringing in too many. In our eyes a competitive match isn't being able to win in every timezone, it's each world having their own strength(s) and being able to avoid being completely dominated outside of that. We are not necessarily aiming to win.

We are in no particular rush. We would prefer that interested players and guilds take the time to get to know our community and be sure that we're the right world for them to call a new home.

For some specifics, here is what we have to offer
  • Community Teamspeak
  • Community website (gw2sos.com) with an active event calendar. All guilds are welcome to post events!
  • Weekly WvW meetings to discuss strategy
  • General Community Meetings held every other week
  • Strong Oceanic base (we truly still do have the best Oceanics out there!)
  • Lack of Laggy Zergs! (And Queues)!
  • Active cooperation between guilds!
  • Small Ops are highly valued. We want to see guilds of all sizes shine
  • Strong PvE community (both NA & SEA) - Working on Legendary? Come grind with us! Need a temple open? Our PvE Commanders open temples on a regular basis to help people get their karma gear.
  • Multiple guilds on SoS work together weekly to do t3 bounties - meaning guilds who are smaller, or more WvW focused can still get in on the action without needing to do much organizing themselves!
  • Most of all - a family type community where people help each other and reach across the boundaries of guilds to all players in SoS.
If you are interested in learning more please feel free to contact Errawen (NA) at [email protected], Arakeem (EU) at [email protected], or Rooster (SEA) at [email protected]

I will leave you with a video featuring some of the sexy ladies of SoS being mischievous!

Sheesh, there are objectively far worse companies than crappy old EA... The types that actually ruin human lives and nations or destroy the environment. Or both.

Lol I agree. I would say Monsanto is the worst company in the world, IMO.

Yea, although I agree it's the worst company in the gaming industry.

#2189318 T4 WvW: SoS, SBI, and CD

Posted Earendil on 09 April 2013 - 04:29 AM

We're mostly using our own forums. Checking the official one, and sometimes here. We barely post even on the official ones - we were with DR and Maguma over the last months and those are some serious forum warriors.

Still - we are comfortable in t4, finding our spot, rebuilding the community and such. Sometimes we may even lead in points, sometimes we have under 100. Almost no oceanic / euro presence hurts, for sure. We are not what we used to be back in T1 but neither is SoS :)

But you can't imagine how happy we were to get rid of Mags. We all appreciate the current T4 setup, fun battles and respect to/from opponents.

#2182989 Past time for Alliances

Posted ShezuTsukai on 23 March 2013 - 02:56 PM

With the inclusion of the really cool new content of guild missions to GW2 it is past time for GW2 to catch up to GW1 with alliances.

The small guilds need a real alliance system in order to fully participate in the missions beyond the training. It was very nice of Anet to include the training so small guilds can get to the real missions. But they are still severely hindered in actually being able to run a full mission.

I have heard of some guilds getting together for missions and using some form of voice chat. I think that's great. But that is nowhere close to the teamwork and participation potential that existed in GW1.

This would also be a huge boon in WvW for coordinating in a more meaningful way than just mobbing on the commanders.

If Anet doesn't bring in alliances soon what are recommendations for forming unofficial alliances?

#2182990 Past time for Alliances

Posted El Duderino on 23 March 2013 - 02:57 PM

Does your server have a website/forum? That is kind of like an alliance, I guess, although I do miss alliance chat.

So sPvP is nothing like 5v5? Wow, imagine my amazement when I tell the fellas back at the guild.

But, where did I say no one contributes? You seem to have mixed up that point with what I did say, which is basically, stop whining about 5v5 fights that mean nothing. JQ is winning, so whatever they are doing is working. So, stop bitching and do something about it.

I mean, I get that small teams capturing supply camps and killing yaks is helpful, but open field 5v5 doesn't do anything for anyone. Why would they stop and fight when they can go do something that puts points on the board?

Do you actually play WvW and understand how it works?

Needs more Sun Tzu.
