Why not keep server and add alliances seasons?

I dont want to see another epic fail after the introduction of desert bl.
Changing the whole system with one button may cause the destruction of WvW.
Is it better to keep the server and link system and comes with alliances seasons?
Two months of server war and one month of alliance war season rotation will be perfect.

    There's no way to implement that. "Alliance season" depends on having playtime stats from alliance match-ups. Setting it up at all requires removing people from Worlds, which completely changes incentives to remain/transfer. It's a bit like asking a country to hold an election and, if the results are close, go 3 months with one Prime Minister, then the next three with the other candidate as PM. It sounds "fair," but the results will be worse than choosing one or the other.

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"

    might happen/work if wvw redo isn't liked by the majority.
    I would be interested to hear if it would be possible from an anet employee.

    you don't know till you know, ya know.

    Nah, the wvw servers are way too unbalanced after years of bandwagoning. Wvw needs somewhat of a hard reset.

    You mean the WvW servers are unbalanced after years of anet botching up class + meta changes and making the population decline heavily due to that. As a last resort making server linkings come true and in doing so implanting bandwagoning.

    The new system will make servers meaningless thus guilds will be recruiting from everywhere. If you keep server as it is, you are just defeating that benefit and make things more chaotic for guilds.

    No, Hunkamania, President for Ruins of Surmia has it right. NA stacked, and believe they were better players on higher pop servers. When in reality, we're all just scrubs regardless of anet metas.

    Spectre [VII] - Wood League Champion. Making "fight guilds" stack on higher tiers since 2013.
    Michelin rated WvW guild since 2015. The gold standard. Never transferred, never reformed, adapting and reloading with or without Anet.

    Removing servers will sap much of the motivation behind wanting to play wvw.

  • whole idea of the new system is to break up Blackgate if u havent figure that out yet u dont play much of WvW

    The game should have been guild-based from the beginning. Servers were always a bad idea, just like they are in every game - all they do is separate friends and lead to a loss of honor as people keep transferring around like ping pong balls whenever it leads to more winning.

    The only reason they've lasted this long is because they were good income for ArenaNet.

    EDIT: Look I came from a game many years ago that was high on server pride, and I hear that reasoning alot. But it only worked okay there due to low populations and no transfers, people had to physically make other accounts to play on other servers which kept the whole "push button to win" thing to a minimum. The simple truth is that ArenaNet can never truly balance WvW until this button no longer exists in GW2.

  • if you want to maintain servers , ArenaNet must Link EU and NA servers, those are 2 regions that has 2 different play time. Linking them makes all the sense.

    it be fun. =) imagine just 1 tier or 7 depending on the active community.

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.

    I am hopeful for the changes coming. It will be epic in a very good way or epic in a really bad way. That is based on the history of updates in Gw2 imo.

    Edit: As to your idea you can not have both. It needs to be one or another. Having both might be worse imo.
