    Default Too many Defiants, all of them overfed.

    All the PvP servers on my cluster feel very Defiant biased, and they're all lulzy sore winners. The PvE servers are of course Guardian biased.

    If some of these 'hardcore pvpers' as you call yourselves want an actual challenge, why do you roll on the dominant side? Oh yeah, because getting the gear isn't the challenge, steamrolling pve and rp servers without spilling your drink is.

    I figured trying pvp again would be a good idea due to the increased bonus, but every single match has been a Guardian loss. There's just no chance at competition, and I don't see why people would even play this once realizing that the Defiant train has caught enough speed that no one can catch up...

    You really expect people to lose their way to rank 8? What happens then? You get stuck with everyone else still grinding out their ranks and lose anyway. Every single match is a team of Defiants /mark 1 and focusing down people.

    I apologize for the ranty nature of this post, but I'm really just disgusted by the pvp status currently, and the next event that seems to be pitting the factions against each other.

    Rant my friend u deserve that atleast. I'm defiant and I can't play when the last month I havnt lost a match its sad on both ends. Its not fun just steamrolling people I don't like beating an oponent that is dowm. This guardian loss over and over also make medo 3 vs 5 or 5vs 7 matches and ques never pop anymore. Again u r right dayblind th balance alone is prob 10 to 1 now defiant to guardian its sad.

    I used to tally my warfronts up and when I actually kept up with it, I almost always hovered around 50/50 if I spent enough time to get a good sample. Not just like an hour or 2 worth, but many days. I'm defiant, but no faction ultimately wins. The only place I've noticed a significant unbalance is on briarcliff cluster I felt like I lost way more as a defiant. I can't claim to feel like I win or lose drastically more on any other cluster I joined though.

    I may love pvp but I'm hardcore lazy. I am not rerolling a rogue, p8'ing it, getting like 600 inscribed source shards, maxing all the factions and doing another 10k+ PA points just to 'be a guardian for the challenge' as you call it lol. Just sayin' I rolled a Defiant at first because it was a blind unknowing choice. If there was a way to betray my toon to Guardian faction it might be something fun to give a shot.

    Anywho, I don't see players from PvE servers as less threatening than PvP server players. When leveling through the ranks and getting favor to buy gear - if I could make a pie chart of where progression comes from, a very dominant slice would be WF's. The world PvP is a very small avenue of the overall progression you make IMO. I hit rank 1 - 4 on a PvE server. Then they opened up server xfers, and I went to a pvp server, and leveled up just as fast on WF's for the most part.

    Anywho was just commenting on a few things you said, I think your being a bit harsh . I say this alot, I've stopped doing it but, at first I xfered to almost every PvP server I could. For the most part...the win/lose ratio is all the same on the servers. During certain times of the day sometimes there were lose streaks as there were also times of win streaks. Sometimes there was no dominanace at all. But I rarely see pure lose or win streaks.

    Id agree two months ago but bud it is horible to play pvp as guard now I mean go try its literally a zergfest its not fun for either side anymore I lost my fair share to max rank but gurds literally lose everytime now not even close. I truly feel that every guardian who was serious about pvp is no longer playing this game its that bad out there.

    I am a guardian on a pvp server and our guild is transfering from sunrest to briar cliff today. Why not come to briar cliff and have some fun with some other guardians?

    The truth is something people say they want to hear, but truly do not want to hear it.

    Not quite sure I understand considering this is about warfront imbalance. In my experience Guardians give better than they get on the Sunrest/Seastone etc cluster.

    Go to Briarcliff or Seastone. Guardian wins all over.

    Thank you for bringing a corresponding opinion from the other side of the issue. I honestly was expecting a bunch of Defiants spamming 'U TRASH, GO HOME." and the like which I get daily in the WF's.

    Switching servers would help if not solve the problem, but then it's a moral issue of doing the same thing to other people which is ruining this shard cluster, plus the added problem of leaving friends and acquaintances.

    Tough choice. :C

    I would've said that two months ago but it is really one sided atleast on he dayblind cluster I haven't lost in a long time and it shouldn't be one sided like that. The girl posting above is completely correct seastone cluster is pvpers last haven. That's were I'm going to give rift its last chance and like I've said in other posts before I'm gonna give away the ac**** I paid for a year ahead and if it ends up like dayblind did in wpvp and wf with no challnge at all snce all the guards are gone then its no worth even getting my monys worth from it.

    Depends if the quality Brocliff defiants actually queue together or not, then it turns into a great game like today's Scion.

    Too many guards on Seastone. It's so stupid how many they bring to zone events then attempt to grief you so you can't even get credit on the boss.

    That's world pvp though. Solo queueing on defiant side for wfs is bad as well. Guards normally farm defiant there.

    Think pop imbalance occurred with goon squad transfer to server followed by them leaving it seems.

    Need a bonus to favor, exp, prestige for the underpop side. Hopefully that will encourage mor pvp for that side because it's kind of stupid how it's set up currently.

    Ive had my defiant mage since headstart.
    My only alt is a 17 guardian on bloodiron.

    I refuse to box my defiant mage just because of a whiney rant.

    Somedays, we win much. Otherdays we loose alot. But on general its pretty even over the board in total.

    I play on sagespire, dun remeber what all the servers in that battlegroup is (AHEM BATTLEGROUP FORUMS, PLZ TRION? ) But ive had mates come here from other servers, who say its alot better than clusters they've had.
