No shilling, no fud, just cold reality
HOD is one of the weakest host server, only advantage it has is coverage to keeps up its PPT.
We don't ever queue 4 maps on reset. We don't ever have decent PST coverage. We get owned a lot. Many pugs are still new to WvW. We have many players playing roamer classes but can't win much roaming fight alone. We lack good enough pug commanders that can show pugs the ways to fight, so they ended up learning the ways to run instead. The pugs cannot carry you, most don't have siege disablers to help you delay enemies.
We got many NA left the server over the years, not able to deal with the losing, not able to deal with the blobbing, a lot of fairweathers claiming they are not. Now that the fairweathers have been flushed out, we need fighters for NA, especially PST. HOD's NA is possibly harshest environment among all NAs to fight in!
We need pug commanders that will educate both himself and others on how to fight. I did that more than a year ago, tagging daily for 6-8 hrs from sea to eu, initially a squad with more than half of roaming classes to a almost full squad of zerg classes. It took couple of months while embracing the hates from all the haters, the long hours tagging gotten the pugs whole lot better. Then a few more months later, I got bored because things got too easy and I felt the agony of my wallet. Most importantly, no new commanders will step up if I tag that long everyday.
HOD is not for the weak hearted, you will suffer numerous defeats. You will experience despairs and frustrations. You will laugh and curse at the same time. It is not a place where you can hope to boost your ego.
Join us in HOD for just 1000 gems, a place of suffering and defeats, where phoenix will raise from the ashes in the distant future.
