[EU] Baruch Bay [SP] overpowered at night

Whenever we're paired against Baruch Bay, they come to conquer everything in the night with numbers we cannot defend against, causing us to lose T3 structures without standing any chance to defend against it.

Is there anything that can be done to make this match more balanced during the nights?

    That's a timezone thing

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    They are pretty much dominated in other timezones, so it's just an opposite effect happening

    If when it happens to them too then, I see no problem.

    Who even cares about PPT in 2020

  • Make dedicated SP servers on NA, more fights for all.

    Even in 2020, there are still ppl that think defending T3 structures is just for PPT? :o

    It has nothing to do with balance. More accurately its a population thing, specifically population during certain timezones. You cant "balance" that any more than some divine function can come into a 1v3 and yell "NO, THIS FIGHT IS UNBALANCED!" and ban 2 of the players from fighting. Thats not how WvW works. Thats not how balance works.

    This is why some of us have argued to scale PPT by overall activity so that WvW can go into "night mode" at any point in time - not determined by timezones which many argue because thats just stupid, flawed and biased vs certain players. This scaling would make PPT matter less when there are few players, while PPK matter more. 3 stages of activity will probably be enough, high/medium/low. It wont stop the enemy capping all your kitten, but it reduce their ability to capitalize on it.

    But really, there is no solution in a 24/7 game other than bring your own nightcrew to counter their nightcrew.

    Dont look a gift Asura in the mouth.
    No seriously, dont. Shark teeth.

    There are mainly people from the south-american continent playing.

    They are usually active from 0:00 to 4:00 CET. after that you can easily flip everything back.

    At day they are ok, but only at night they really shine.

    It starts around 11pm-1am server time and stops before 4am. That is the only time I see them active, it'll be lucky to see them fight back anywhere near 6am

    I'm spanish although I play in Kodash. Here with the covid people use to go to sleep super late and wake up at 12, and its normal for teens and lazy people. When school and jobs starts things will go back to normal.

  • they are not "overowered' at night , they just hide in their t3 keeps
    they feed us good bags tho

    Its how the game is ment to be played, zergs ktrain on other server sleep timezone, theres always tbe big timezone vs medium tm vs small/empty timezone, each server has its own flow timezone.

    Oh really? Now that's a breaking news!

    Spanish people have a different prime time than the rest of EU + lots of spanish speaking americans (time zone: ~6 hours behind EU) play on that server. So they are active between 11pm and 6am and the server is dead in between.

    The whole skirmish thing was developed to reduce the impact of night time PPT. It has been way worse before. Baruch's nightly 99% coverage could compensate their weak daytime because during daytime the PPT were split between the other two servers, so that baruch could win matchups with that strategy.
