And if there was a moment, at what time did you know/decide you were a WvW main?
My earliest memory doubles as the moment I decided to be a WvW main.
I can't remember the exact servers that were present, but I do remember a lot of other details.- I had just entered EBG for the first time. I saw two sets of orange swords on the mini map, which at this point I only understood to be Events because I was still quite new to the game. Our server was blue, and I entered the keep from the spawn side moving toward the OJ's that were between Bravost, Umber, and Durios in the vicinity of the Grub. I confidently went up the wall preparing to hop out to participate, but immediately froze when I saw the absolute ocean of red and blue names. It was a 3 way fight between all servers, and as far as I can recall, it must have been map Q's from each side. I was so floored by the scale of this fight I would be talking about it to friends for the next week.
I'm pretty sure I died within 30 seconds of joining the fight, but I went back as many times as it took, and I had a total blast. I had never seen anything like that in a video game before (granted, I've only played a dozen or so video games in my life) and was immediately sold on WvW.
I still get a little giddy even today when I see huge 3 way fights even if they're often a lagfest. It just never stops being cool to me to see so many players fighting in one place.
How about you guys? I'd love to hear stories, especially from veterans that might remember things I totally forgot about. It would also be interesting to hear the perspectives of new players to learn how a new comer feels with all the things that have changed about WvW over the years.
