    ooh yes, although we probably don't have enough WvW'ers to be a good candidate.

    Interesting list. As I suspected, there isn't time for us to play everybody twice.

    That's actually quite an unlucky fixture list, since we face AM and Deso twice, but Underworld only once.

    There's one error though -- according to the Anet post, 11/1-11/8 is Gandara and FR.

    But we're playing MS three times... I guess one of those should be UW instead.

    Corrected.

    Odd that we're not playing all opponents at least once. Also strange they haven't announced the fixtures for the US league yet- maybe they're scared of the forum wrath any combination will inevitably attract?

    I think we have everyone at least once.

    The US matchups come later because US reset isn't until ~2am UK time.

    The real quibble seems to be that we won't be Green for the entire league - this is true of several servers.

    not as bad as Gandara's fixture list, they get AM and Deso three times.

    Has anyone filled in the application form yet? If not, I'll do it on behalf of RPS.

    Fantastic 3-way fight in GH bay just now. MS defended against AG coming in via the north gates and us coming in via the south gates. They wiped both AG and GH groups twice.

    The third time we got in, AG and MS had been fighting for a while so we managed to set up camp in the lord's room and fight there for some good 10 minutes while MS tried to stop us from capping.

    In the end, we prevailed and bay is ours again, as it should be. Epic fights - and I have to put in a good word for the PUG commander, Akicita - great leadership and perfect comms skills - he typed everything in map chat.

    Yeah Akicita's a good commander and been with us for a long time now. I think we're going to be lucky to keep second place this week unless the dynamic changes drastically after the weekend, but that's no bad thing and it's an exciting match so far. Quite a lot of 3-way fights been going on which is fun.

    This is incredible - the skill lag is unbearable and it's 11 AM! If ANet didn't count with the influx of new players when they announced the WvW league then there's something seriously wrong with the people in charge..

    Never underestimate the need MMO players feel to immediately max out any new numbers on offer.

    Back to drama central for Gunnar's. HT and FRS have left/are leaving. In general the server seems annoyed about this match. Dunno, why, we're plenty competitive, and a couple of months ago we wouldn't have got close to matching either AG or MS. The league seems to have made people a bit crazy.

    If more guilds start leaving, we could be looking at a repeat of last year's collapse. Compounding the issue, we aren't likely to win any matches in silver league, since each week sees us coming up against at least one stronger opponent.
