    I reckon most would take that over four weeks with the boot on the other foot (though the degree of stomping is obviously important too ).

    it isn't an official thing, since nobody really wants to take charge of it atm, however there are usually a fair few people around for partying up.

    Thanks to those who came along for reset tonight, was good fun. After a few wipes on Drakkar borderlands we noticed that TEO had capped hills. We decided to head there to siege up and defend the keep. (Icepop would be proud!) We saturated the gates and the Lords Room with superior arrow carts and tried our best to make the place as uninviting as possible, before escorting dolyaks in to (eventually!) get the walls upgraded.

    Drakkar Lake tried several times to blob their way in with little success. Only once did they get through the wall, and with the help of FRS and TEO we managed to push them back. The other times they fell to the might of our arrow carts. RoF tried once to nibble at the south gate but were soon sent home with their tails between their legs.

    It was good fun to do something a bit different! Some RPS are still defending Hills now, and I'll be intrigued to see how long we keep it.

    As of now, Hills is still firmly under our control. Some impressions:

    Escorting dollies is the new shit. Everyone's doing it, you should too!

    One lesson I really need to learn, is:

    Must take siege into WvW.

    Drakkar Hills is still ours, and is showing as not having flipped since last night (on gunnars-hold.eu). Good job, all!

    Edit: it flipped just after I posted this.. but hey, 12 hours is pretty good.

    I'll probably put some superior rams and ACs into the guild bank, since I'm usually so late to think "I can build an AC!" that the stuff is up already.

    Really fantastic work guys. On my own admittance I can be a little... aggressive with the enemy servers on reset - especially on the Red Borderland. However, sometimes it's a lot better (and more fun) to knuckle down and turtle.

    Also, hmmm.

    I swear at SoS the squad capped at 50 people and the Wiki also used to say that the maximum amount of people in a squad was 50. However, people in the thread say that it does experience bugs - so I wonder if you have lots of people join at the same time it breaks the cap. Or if they've nerfed the number of people since in the interests of not having a /d full of spam.

    I guess we'll see at the next event.

    Shorter official forums.

    Nov 2012-Aug 2013: "bring orbs back! where is the orb replacement?"

    Aug 2013-present: "why are you bringing orbs back! imbalance! omg!"

    In all seriousness, it's not clear how this is going to go. Anyone who does GvG seems to be dead against. And others are (legitimately) worried about the strongest servers getting even more of an advantage. But people have been crying for a new mechanic, so they're kind of getting what they asked for.

    My only concern is how difficult it is to remove the new orb buff. The stat bonus isn't removed until another server takes 3 of 5 ruins. That is, you don't lose the buff just because you lose 3/5. It might be better if it were easier to lose.

    If this goes badly, though, it could have a seriously detrimental effect on WvW. (Still, shorter queues, eh?)

    True, I wanted to put my regular siege in there as well, but I saw there was plenty in the bank already. So I just put the small amount of superior siege I have with me in there. Too bad you can't access the guild bank from inside WvW.

    well they've created a lovely area for theives to play in; not sure how the the changes will benefit Rangers when they happen, but here's hoping.

    So I go in GH BL at north camp to kill some chickens for the daily... and i get stomped by 3 RoF... I report it in map chat and then I start getting flamed by a random about being an upleveled noob and that I'm ruining his game for not being on a level 80... seriously.

    Don't worry he'll be out of nappies soon enough then he can go to nursery and eventually school to learn how to not be a cock or he may just always be one anyway
