Request Blackgate Gets A Link

Arbriel.4397Arbriel.4397 Member ✭✭

Dear Anet,

With fewer players playing now on Blackgate, BG I do think its time that BG got a linked server and if at all possible could I request Stormbluff Isle, SBI?

I have good friends and a guild on SBI and I'd love to be able to WvW with them again without transferring off BG.

Thank you.

    Just play your BP alt hoping to game the system and no you will get ioj or ebay or a dead link when/if you get one again not like a sbi or fc or hod type thing.

    You can't actually think that right?

    As for the topic at hand, don't know a lot of people that actually want a link on BG, but I'm sure because this person said we do everyone will take it as gospel.

    Think what? That some BG playing on BP while BG dropped to t4 in an attempt to be opened or get a link next time. Yeah. That if they get a link it will be a dead med pop one. Yeah. That once they get that med link instantly 50-100 players will transfer to it. Yup. This topic could be a troll attempt for fun no idea and no BG doesn't deserve a link but they got one for about 8 months recently and also dropped to VH also so anythings possible

    He said his guild and good friends are on SBI, but he doesn't want to transfer off of BG so perhaps it is a troll attempt on his friends.

    We were against em not too long ago (2 linkings ago) and they had a lot of numbers to contend with. Dunno if anything changed since then.

    If servers have 100 peeps and BG has 500...losing 100 peeps still makes you a giant. (exaggerated example ofc but gets the point across)

  • Most of you don't know what you're talking about. BG lost a lot of players like I said, doesn't have 500 it has closer to 275 and no sign of a troll here from me. So yes needs a link attached to BG, lacking one has dropped BG down to a T3/4 server. Maguuma, Mag for instance has a lot more players on it than BG as does Borlis Pass, BP too.

    I would suggest stopping...

    Regardless of whether your numbers are accurate or not (and they are not) you will not see any agreement in here about it.

    BG is back in T2 and competing.

    I would suggest just playing the game.

    Dear ANet,

    This is not a permanent fix, but a "band-aid" solution to this post.

    There's a better posted solution that fixes the real problem & not just the symptoms that this post brings up.

    Observation - WvW Black Hole - Players Enter But Don't Come Out.

    Re-Design Fix - Enter & Exit - Keep Active & Purge In-Active


    Please enable an Automatic Monthly Purge of players OFF their chosen Home Server that "statistically" stopped playing WvW while maintaining a strict Maximum Server Capacity.

    Automatic & Monthly Purges like this will allow All Servers to Refresh their Seats that are supposedly filled by "Dead" WvW players.

    This will also allow players to reform their dead or dying "Community" on a New Server after 1 month of inactivity.

    This policy would apply Equally to All Servers.

    Then let the chips fall where they may.

    Yours truly,
    Diku

    Credibility requires critical insight & time.

    Umm, I'll try to be nice as possible, since you may not be aware of the wvw politics and memes (it's really nothing worth learning), but historically speaking Blackgate has been known to reduce its activity to achieve its goal of getting a link.

    While your intention of wanting to play with us is nice, our guild doesn't really wvw outside of guild missions anymore-- it's basically 10 minutes a week? You can't really expect anyone to show concern about that when half the servers are empty. I think it would be better if you asked if one of the tiers be deleted, and thus increasing the chance of getting your request indirectly. Also, nobody actually wants SBI as a link (Honestly, if someone doesn't fall over in the first 3 seconds in a fight, I assume they're not SBI); I'm just going to leave it at that.

    You are always welcome to transfer back though though given the current state of WvW, I would recommend just saving your gold and waiting for alliances where you could probably play with us anyways. Well, whoever's left in 2030.

    What is it with forum dwellers thinking this is the case? I can count on 1 hand the number of people from BG that have alts on BP unless they're absolutely complete random pugs and mean nothing. There's no BG guilds on BP. Y'all got some conspiracy theory. It did get bandwagonned a bit by randoms + having FC as a link is pretty big. But there's no conspiracy of BG alts on BP, this is pretty stupid. (My account has been on BP since I transfered to play with Wavy monnnnths ago)

    I'm not saying BP isn't fat stacked but I see a lot of people on other servers that have the numbers and guild groups but whine bs at BP just because they're losing so I take that stuff with a grain of salt.

    I really doubt Mag alone has more players than BG. Actually it's as close as we can get to a fact that BG is bigger based on server statuses. Remember Mag has a link, and one of the biggest at that. Are they alone bigger than BG? No. Otherwise they'd be full. Some BG people really need some perspective. Same thing as being in T3, T4. It happens to almost every other server for months at a time depending on server linking. BG is just used to winning literally every week so suddenly it's some crisis and they need intervention from Anet just because they went T4 for one week lmao.

  • Bigpapasmurf.5623Bigpapasmurf.5623 Member ✭✭✭✭

    Its ironic/sad yet funny. BG is begging for a linking, yet they caused their own issues with bandwagoning. They purposely tank, which is more than well known. This is more of a "you made your bed" kind of scenario.

    Gee...who would have thought this would happen /sarcasm

    A conspiracy can start with one comment. In this case it was a BG player who said he knew many were playing BP alts. BG does certain things most servers don't care enough to do. Then you play BP and see this similar behavior so you go He was right! Now no one except a BG player with BP alt knows if it's true or pure fabrication. You also don't know. It's not like they would go and join the same guild or name it BG alts or advertise in chat etc. Sure it probably just nonsense but it's too late now

  • the issue isn't giving blackgate one of the lower population links, it's the massive bandwagon that comes with it. Then you end up with a full server linked with a high pop server, which is what is happening with BP/FG right now.

  • I'm sure you all know what comes next. BG will wind up being placed in T4 with a semi dead link while they'll be against a server that has three links. Anet give us the tools to defeat the oppressors! Things like the ability to play competitively, balance out across time zones, communicate effectively. Why with this highly sought after package available for 2k gems in the online store, you also could face off against this fine specimen of a server.

    Dear OP,

    Please accept sympathies empathies from Piken Square [EU].

    I have good friends and a guild on SBI and I'd love to be able to WvW with them again without transferring off BG.

    Anet want you to leave, that's why the server status exists.

    If there wasn't something fishy about the way server status is determined, they would tell us how it works. Likely there is some undesirable human element involved in what should not be an arbitrary decision.
    This seems to be like the map caps. There is something of the night about them. Why all the secrecy?

    If they told people exactly how server population worked, it would be even easier to exploit than it already is. Stop complaining that you're full, it's probably deserved.

    Right now BG does not have the players to fight Sea of Sorrow's, SoS or Yak's Bend, YB at all in any timezone, no map queue at all during reset so if we don't get a link at least open up the server for transfers, for minimum of 1 month.

    Like I said is what I mean and you're wrong, we did not blob during those hours at all, unless you really mean that a blob constitutes a squad of 23 max and with pugs attached out of squad. Why do you think we dropped to T3 this week and not progressed to T1 last week? Today was a clear example of lacking players on BG. We can't even scout out our towers or keeps either, eventually our tag decided to tag down as he said due to a lack of players. NINE Guild hasn't tagged up at all for at least 2 weeks due to the same reason, not enough players on BG. You must be a troll.
