    Lightbulb Serious question from a newbie: Are there *any* server clusters where Defiants win?

    I haven't seen a win in days. The first few matches I played during the early morning on the first day were wins for Defiant but after dozens of matches all losses I'm wondering if I picked a ****ty server when I rolled on Briarcliff.

    I have Googled for the info and looked through old threads. There was a ton of Guardian QQ in March about imbalance but nothing really since. There is no official list of what servers are in which groups either which makes it very hard to pick one.

    My preference would be for a server that has active World PVP in a server cluster that is relatively balanced but searching the forums and the net I haven't seen any suggestions.

    Thanks for any helpful responses in advance

    EDIT: I should add I've asked a number of people in private, in warfronts, in local and server chats and every single one says "No."

    Yeah, our cluster is pretty evenly matched. Lots of hard fought games.

    Default well

    on the sunrest/belmont wargroup, it's about 90%-10% in favor of the defiant.

    in fact, guardians often only get single-digits in kills.

    I like the Freeholme/Molinar cluster. Decent queues for all levels, and pretty even.

    Freeholme/Molinar cluster is pretty even depending on the time of day. You have to learn when defiants logged on and participating. It's all about getting to know your server, its community, and the cluster.

    Sunrest seems quite even. Depending on time of day i could very easily win 10 in a row or lose 10 in a row. Very rarely does it alternate but it very much goes back and forth on who's dominating.

    Well. I was doing okay, roughly even (maybe 60/40 losses/wins) until I hit the 20-30 bracket. It's back to 90/10 losses/wins now. Defiants absolutely refuse to play as a team most of the time. I'm seriously considering a re-roll to Guardians. I did play open beta briefly and I know most of the pvpers there were talking about rolling Guardians then because they knew Defiants would be higher pop.

    Rogues seem pretty weak too .. I can kill most mages, most other rogues although not good bards or exceptional marksman, a handful of warriors and NEVER a cleric (1v1). I'm an assassin primarily (with 5 in rifstalker for the teleport mostly and 6 in inflitrator). The stealth is nice, that's about it, the burst isn't enough to compensate for the heals and damage mitigation though. I know rogue forums are saying nightblade or marksman *shrug*.

    I really really wish there was more info around referencing how things are at end game, statistics from servers and numbers like there are for WoW. I know there are 8 ranks after 50 which reminds me a lot of Warhammer (as this whole game does, only a PVE focused version).

    Anyway thanks for the helpful responses, far less flames than I expected.
