T2 "match fixing"

@ devs
You guys should really pay attention on what's happening on T2 NA , second week in a row, when 2 servers are about to tie again??? What are the odds??

    Are you saying that a manipulation is the only way that two servers could match in score?
    How would they accomplish this, given how difficult it is to get everyone on the same map to agree to the same strategy for the night, never mind for the full week?

    And other than the novelty of a tie, what benefit accrues to the worlds?

    Besides which: neither coordinating nor double-teaming is against the rules.

    A tie means no one has to move up to face the wildly unbalanced cruise control server. It's a good thing imo since the pops are so uneven thanks to the wonderfull people playing this game.

    T1 is fun unless your a casual.. so it's pretty much avoided by the player base of GW2

    More specifically, ANET should stop giving BG a pairing. Not sure how it is good for WvW as a whole to hear people yell at others to stop playing so that we don't get more points.

    No seriously, AR/JQ and FC/ET are very closely matched, and a tie is inevitable. We are locked together in a death spiral of ties. There shall never be any other outcome than ties.

    As someone on a server trying to escape week after week of aforementioned wildly unbalanced cruise control server I still find it somewhat amusing.
    If two servers can coordinate a successful tie, all the more power to them. At most its a fault of the system, not the players.

    Bg actually going to lose. Anet pocketed a nice 35k gems i bet w the 70 tranfers to get it done. Fun to watch tho

    Yeah, bet NCSOFT sanctioned this. $437.50 will be massive on the books for the shareholders.

    Anyways, non-tinfoil hat reply here - they could just tiebreak based on the background glicko that's still in the code. Not sure if it's worth it though. Kinda feel sorry for them though. They could try to use their influence on the scores to topple BG out of T1, but 'meh'

    2 collaborating commanders is how it's done (and they know who they are).

    Easy fix for Anet to stop this behavior; move both tied servers up a Tier, while moving the other 2 down. Then watch how fast ties never happen again.

    2 commanders are not going to be able to pull ties off. Ties require more than a little luck, and the stars aligning just perfectly.

    Yeah, 'cause that's how I plan to spend my two-hours-per-week of gw2 playtime. =p

    Let’s go for the real manipulation hod/sf 15 behind.. 3 way tie (not sure if it is even possible)...

    Hmmmm...that would be amusing! What would happen then? 3-way (so many jokes), does anyone move?

    F---, I'm awful at this game.

    Just goes to show, two servers can work together to control a tier.

  • Well, expandas transferred off from AR/JQ out of thin air a couple of days ago so... I don't think AR/JQ will have to worry about it anymore.

  • Liah.8324Liah.8324 Member ✭✭

    Meh, I'm sure it'll be fine. If HOD/SF can't take on two servers at once, they'll drop, and maybe just focus on holding mid/high position there. Who knows. Who cares!? lol Not like there's any extra bits for being up there!

    F---, I'm awful at this game.

    its not hard to manipulate points. supposing server 1 2 3.

    each has same score. the strongest one simply has to focus on one team so x or y goes up or down or catches up.

    and if the community leaders of each group does it, they can manipulate the score as they will.

    only the stronger team can do this, but if one guy decides 1 2 will tie, they will.

    Not Even Coverage is the Only broken thing in WVW.
