I can only speak for myself and I wasn't a fan of the pirate ship meta. The reason is its just not fun to have two groups stand across from another ( large scale ) just waiting and hoping for an entry or scanning, otherwise you will hit a wall of 30 shades. I dont know how many people remember the pirate ship meta but I do and If I remember correctly it was mostly disliked for this very reason. We already had enough aoe circles to dodge before and now we have to contend with all that plus a huge amount of shades that do way more damage. I'm a little surprised that you went this way Anet given how stale and empty wvw got after the last pirate ship meta. Please do something. I really don't care which way you go, nerf the shades, buff resistance or add more professions that can provide resistance...give more stab... I dont care really. Just please fix it. Any Ideas to fix this mess are welcome.
