I'm not saying do it, or don't do it.
But I'll say this.... I'm running through my home bl... zipping toward south west between nwc and bay and I see two people fighting on the plains where the centaurs are. I haven't seen 1v1 in wvw for ages and I don't give it a second thought. As I roll through (with no words coming from the other person in the fight), I hit my goodies, down, kill, carry on... Hey my team mate was losing and it looked like a stomp was imminent...
lol... so a few seconds later I start getting whisper stains about how SoS can't handle doing anything but fighting other people with bigger numbers... (SoS?... ok)... he tells me they were 1v1'ing and I apologize for the mistake.. and I figure it's over. Then he fires off a few more flames at me instead of accepting my apology... What I say next I'm not sorry for at all... I told him..
Ok then.. remember this.. you can go to OS and do proper WvW 1v1 there... or you can do it here. If you do it here and I see you again, you're dead. As my Soulbeast pet says: If Its Red Its Dead.
Seriously if you want to 1v1 in WvW then go to an out of the way place, not between two keeps and a camp where you don't stand a chance of being anything but pounded into the ground. I will not have mercy, and I don't expect mercy from anyone that finds me either. Come get me.. kill me if you can.. I have wp mastery! Game on!
Just another WvW lifer who'll never say die... while dying again and again!
