Dragonbrand Population?

Why DRAGONBRAND is not allowed to have more than 50 people on map
without queue while others have 100+?! (Outnumbered all the time)

Why? Why? Why?
Can anyone care to explain the reasons?

  • The caps are around 70 per server. You have the same amount of people on your map, the other servers are just working more united than yours is.

    It's funny because I remember last link DB had with YB, we had a reset night where we only seemed to have 50 on map with a queue, and DB+YB had over 80... Short of counting every single player we could see, we had no way of proving they had literally more players than what we've heard the map cap is... But yeah sure, DB aren't "allowed" more than 50 on a map lol.

    ETA: We could see 60-65 directly in front of us fighting us (estimated individually by multiple people as best as we could count), then had a scout call for another guild group of 25-30 who flipped Hills while we were all tied up. We saw that group not long afterwards so can confirm there were more people on the map for DB+YB than there "should" have been according to the map cap. I'm not one to call shenanigans normally, but we saw what we saw and no one on voice comms at the time could explain it. Usually I'm of the mindset that there's hidden pugs and guild groups, but we didn't have strays on the map that reset outside of our 2x 25 guild groups other than about 5 roamers, and had people sitting in queue. Sometimes the maths genuinely doesn't add up.

  • map cap is around 70 people and you saying 50 sounds about right. Our server had the "pleasure" being linked with DB and from what we saw, ~20 DB siting in siege than being on tag, so your ~50 people on map might just be on tag and forgetting all the people sitting in empty towers and keeps. Also depends when you play, DB really only has one timezone when everyone is asleep

    Queues on home borderlands are worse than queues on other borderlands because home borderlands are a little like EBG where all the roamers and pugs end up. They're usually busy defending and scouting all over the map. So defender tags usually have a harder time getting the entire home queue following them whereas an invading tag can consolidate a map queue in a single location.

    Too many leeches/semi-afk farmers.

    Just go cata a wall of SMC and kite when the enemy comes; when people die enough, it'll clean it up.

    Warning: You may get raged at.

    You could have double the people on the map and I don't think it would help. DB has bigger issues.
