    Maybe that's why they're bailing... because they saw they can't win any match? Ok, ok, too cynical.

    But seriously, abandoning ship first week of the season? I mean they're even tied to GH for the season so what's the bloody point?

    I had the most fun in months in WvW this week and a close matchup is the best you could ask for...

    PS Can we get back to mumble now?

    How very strange, why leave after just one week? We have no idea how the matches after this are going to be, or how the queues are going to sort themselves out (which i guess is a major reason for HT). Also, they've locked themselves into our rewards now, so they're going to spend 7 weeks fighting for a server with none of the season rewards! Why not stick around for a few weeks and see what happens?

    Oh well, at least with the recent influx of new players into wvw it shouldn't hurt our overall numbers much.

    Apparently HT aren't going anywhere, about 30 of them transferred to FoW to practice raid tactics - but intend to come back

    that's what they said, anyway.

    Won't they be tied to GH's success for league rewards if they have played since reset? Unless they left before Fri. One or 2 guilds leaving isn't a problem, unless it snowballs.
    As for the wins, that's the way a 3 way contest in a league is likely to work - we're ranked 6 out of the 9 teams - so on average we'll win 3 out of the 28 potential matchups, and it looks like those 3 aren't the ones we drew. Not great odds, but that's maths for you.

    Actually we were ranked 5th IIRC - ahead of Millers - but I do think that ranking flattered us a bit.

    Looks like we didn't get in, yet

    Reset was strong, ticking ~300 for the first hour that I was in for. Decent numbers on UW borders and we capped Hills and Garrison.

    Quick question - have we applied yet? Personally I haven't been able to get an application in and will be busy over the weekend, so we'd need ONE person from the guild to fill in the survey for RPS. Any takers (in case this hasn't been done yet)?

    Gandara and Fort Ranik tomorrow - will be tough for us to come second in that one.

    In other GH news, FURY are back (but smaller), but HT have collapsed, reformed, and left for good (to RoS).

    Gandara is a very high populated server is it not?.. wtf is going on with our matches (if so) ah well. Not like glory hunters will go off to wherever the best deal is eh.

    noticed that too, we got a pretty bad draw on the matchups, will require us to push pretty hard where we can win not to get relegated.

    with that in mind, who's for Stonemist on reset?

    They should put a trigger warning on that thread because it gave me flashbacks of my first GW1 guild.

    Next week should be closer than this week, at least, since part of the problem with this match is UW's weakness - giving AM lots of time to wail on us.

    No details have been confirmed about relegation etc, but we do know that there won't be another league this year. Presumably we will have a few random matches to stabilise our rating. I think we're still comfortably better than Dzag and DL, so I don't see us getting relegated - though that may not be a good thing if we're 8th out of 9 in silver league.

    think I would rather be bottom of silver league than top of bronze - that league is even more unbalanced than ours apparently.

    Our ranking going into the league was 15th, which would leave us 5th or 6th out of 9, likely we'll end up 7th now though. Which means; if Anet implement a 3 up, 3 down relegation system (hopefully not) then we would get relegated.

    Of course the league system brought us GRTS, who have been excellent and staying in the silver league means we would likely keep them.

    3 up 3 down seems an odd choice if the leagues are already as imbalanced as they seem to be, as the only way it won't make things worse is if there are hefty server moves. Which means gems to ANet, so it might well happen...
    How are queues nowadays? - should get a chance to WvW in the next few days, but probably not tonight
    Anyone got the WvW season 1 meta-achievement yet?

    I know Fersum has it, would be surprised if anyone else in the guild has it though.

    haven't bee on this week, so not sure about queues. Think there are plenty on our bl, not so much elsewhere.
