    Default Warfront - Which faction has more victory?

    So I'm currently at level 31 and boy i lost a lot of warfront battles to Defiants. I'm thinking of going back to Defiants, to my first character level 39.

    Now here's my question: Which side is winning more games at level 50? Or is it the same for both sides? One of those "grass is greener on the other side" kind of thing.

    It highly depends on what warfront group you happen to be in...and sometimes even the time of day. On Byriel, we had Stonecrest, Dimwood, and Snarebrush in our groups...and defiants seem to win during early afternoon hours (PST) and lose (mostly because of organized premades made) during prime time.

    Depends on time and war-front sever bracket.

    I know for me at the midlevels its a hit and miss, early morning and late night are guardian heavy in wins with defiants holding midday, but you do get the occasion break in pattern and such.
    With Faith and Fury I fight on.

    Its when a group join a warfront together, basically like a dungeon group but fight people.

    premade (terrible term imo, sounds stupid and isn't very descriptive) is pretty much just a group of players that go into a warfront together. generally a huge force multiplier as they can time aoe attacks, move together and react quickly, usually go for one thing together, that and they tend to be higher ranked and whatnot, I was in a black garden with a guild mate and then the rest of the team was made up of members from another guild all p6, needless to say we won and we won by a lot.

    in my experience it generally seems like one side wins and they win by a lot, feels about even on amount of wins. good fights are pretty rare

    I'm on Dimroot (as guardian) and this is spot on. Well, it was until recently anyway. Lately it's been Defiant winning quite a bit.

    There are several players that I see pretty much all the time in almost every Warfront. Nowadays they're all Defiant, and they're literally carrying their teams to victory ..lol. (You know who you are!)

    The Dimroot/Snarebrush/Stonecrest/Byriel cluster has been guardian premades all day long. I played roughly 15 Port Scion matches, and the Defiants lost EVERY SINGLE ONE.

    I asked around, and apparently we did win a couple of PS matches today, but I was stuck in the unlucky queues apparently.

    Funny you should mention that, because I play as a Guardian on Dimroot and we got bludgeoned all day long until about 9pm when I managed to earn more prestige in 5-6 matches than I had gained in 4 hours or so off and on throughout the afternoon. We had no premades, or at the very least none of the premades we had were any good.

    This question is highly dependent on your shard cluster, so I'd move to your shard's forums.

    P.S. Defiants > Biblethumpers. I can't stand the god lore crap.

    I played approx 20 WF's yesterday on Dimroot - and Defiants won 17. Most were vs the same pre-made, a few however we vs Pugs.

    Basically the side that isn't in a PuG.

    One of the strange things with instanced battleground/warfront/scenario PvP/RvR in any MMO that doesn't separate solo queues and pre-mades is it seems like you always lose in a genuine PuG and you do always win in a genuine pre-made vs a PuG.

    So if you play either mostly PuGs or mostly Pre-mades your experience will be vastly different and probably nothing like the actual % of wins and loses in total.

    It's that simple.

    Well then I need to get in your queue, Defiants have been losing like crazy over the weekend, the only ones we seem to win are BG and Codex occassionally.

    Maybe you are going up against Defiant premades or something, the pugs on our side suck.

    Which one? Defiants seem to be pretty good at BG, and sometimes codex, but the other two we lose constantly in.

    Sometimes the Defiants have a premade group. Most of the time, Guardians lose because we play a sloppy game. Some people are happy to blame it on premade this or they have more healers that. I look out over the field on my way back from the GY and most of the time, what I see tells a different story.
