This is what happens when you balance WvW by hours played and not by the number of players.

    Which means it’s working as intended.

    Or skill level imo.

  • And then we have YB which is a full server and cant even stay in T3 for more than one week.

  • ya, the link system is just not working well. They need to make some tweaks to it before alliances like faster re links etc. When you're a server with no link you have to be stacked to the roof with players with 24/7 coverage just to compete and then the other servers just get dudes for 500 gems. Servers really don't matter and winning doesn't matter so people are just gonna 500 gem it for the lolz

    No server in T1 should have a link at any given time for any reason. The second a server moves up to T1, the link needs to be recycled to the bottom tier. This may actually solve the incessant stacking of servers. It's clear the servers can't hold as many people anymore before becoming full, so common practice now is to move to the linked server to over-stack. Can't really do that now if the server loses their link every time they hit T1.

    We all know what happened to that over-stacked server that lost their link? This really should be happening in T1, lessening the blobs, and keeping the players/servers in T1 that actually know how to fight in smaller/even numbers.

    That sounds like a great plan to get players that are actually on the link server to not play or work with their host at all. We're not hired hands and we're not all stackers ya know, some of us actually play because we still like to, and we don't ask for much, but we expect to move up with our host if we contributed to moving them up.

  • Just try leaving Blackgate. Something something balance everyone has a link. ;) Or wait till alliances, where everyone would get shuffled just the same....

    You're telling me Blackgate one of the finest examples of a World vs World server can't ppt or gain a positive kill death ratio with over 20000 kills against a small little server where some dude getting high started his alliance? Sad very sad.

    BG has had a 1-2kdr for almost every matchup for years - I think Mag got them below 1 a few times. IDK what you've been looking at. It's the only reason BG can stay in T1-T2 , the activity numbers are near half of the likes of SBI/KNG/FA mega-servers.

    I like this a lot actually!
