    Lighting up chokes like that has been possible since day one. There's nothing special about scourge in that regard and really other classes can do it even better. Also, from your downed skills you appear to be a necro as well so I fail to see how this is a scourge problem rather than one of getting outplayed.

    I mained a necro from launch to PoF launch. Scourge is the reason I switched to my chrono and ranger.

    I pretty much switched my main from ranger to necro when PoF launched. Well, I still "main" ranger, but necro definitely gets more playtime.
    The designers decided Scourge should be over-potent in large scale wvw. We've got to deal with that fact. In the end, you've got to learn to use the tools you're given, not fight them.

    Everyone has access to the spec.

    edit- Everyone with PoF has access to the spec.

    Ranger main before it was viable.

    Based on the screenshots it appears you are also playing scourge (unless you decided to play reaper in a Zerg and then complain which is laughable) and have poor positioning based on the mini map. I doubt even if it was back to the base game hammer train you'd have had much more luck with surviving.

    Hello, not a noob player here. I have no idea what any of these circles do, just don't walk into any of them. Yep that's the counter play to scourge. But what if they drop these attacks on your head? Stay out of 900 range of them, aka Pirate Ship.

    Anet buff me :-(
    Make me good at game!

    Necros always been this way in large scale wvw even from base, Scourge simply took it to a whole different level of pain on a way more consistent basis like Xenesisll explained.

    wowthose reds are so longer than our rangers 1500

    except for the part where ALL of the SMC inner was a Death Zone , there were two guilds wich run Scourge trains in that zerg , thus no counter play sure you can run and live but why bother playing then if you cant fight back?

    all people have an answer, some servers enjoy running the meta thus these servers all have their answer ready..

    u gotta do this u gotta use this do that.
    untill meta server meets another try hard with kitten loads of these kitten classes but the other server happend to be slightly more active and they just path over your corpse time after time cus theres no counter play versus decent played scourges in a blob..

    u gotta pick em off and decrease their size before going in full force..
    if u go in straight away full force with less scourges ur dead simple as that, your kitten all get corrupt half your blob dies in a flash the remaining cant do a kitten versus all these red circles floating around everywhere, fight has ended..

    yay the joy.

    how would me playing scourge change facts? and again im not complaining about me dying my point is all this long range massive radius non projectile half unblockable spam leaves no counterplay, if we built siege because the blob was mainly 2 scourge guilds they'd just face tank because of barrier spam .

    i hate scourge but at this point im forced to play it to be able to participate at all

    not many know this but projectiles dont work against scourge blobs either because they have a Corruption skill that creates an anti projectile zone wich reduces enemy offence to melee, rev hammer, and ground targeted skills that arent projectiles so basically necro itself. 8s duration,20s cd each also this aoe zone causes weakness thus screwing enemy offense even further, shades also cleanse condi wich further reduces enemy counterplay .

    simply put scourge blobs do Everything

    sadly if so, blob x tank x siege be tje only counter
