    Default Why do Defiants suck so bad at Codex?

    Why?

    You all defend scope (and fail miserably) while Guardians take everything else and farm you at your own spawn.

    Now, I'm far from being supersexay at pvp but you think that if they were all at scope, you'd make them move away by taking other control points. Like statue. Or dex. Or that other one. But no, scope is where the whole team is. Where the whole team dies.

    Please stop sucking so bad at Codex, Defiants. It has become the most painful of all warfronts.

    I'd say a good 85% of codex matches I've played in the past few months have ended in what I already described. Out of 10 or more matches in the past 2 days I've only seen 1 Defiant win. The rest is let's have tea and cake at scope. Tell me when Defiants are on a roll in Codex, then.

    Because they love to attack codex by stopping on top of the rocks instead of zerging the flag and losing around pillar like guardians always do.

    Default This is the oldest question there is.

    And I have been waiting for an answer since the game launched. When you get one, let me know Appendy.

    but but but... scope is closer to the defiant base and that means less running to get back into the fighttttttttt! See! If i run my Super OP 61 Cabalist spec hard casting shadows touch and run into the middle of the other team. I can run back and do it AGAIN sooner than if we were fighting at codex using Line of sight (pfft) at a pillar!

    Defiants tend to run off and do their own thing more than Guardians. (see also: whitefail)

    At the begining when half the group runs strait to dex and 2 others run to statue and one is derping at the respawn point because they fell off the bridge and died due to fall damage, it is easy for the guardians, who only move like 3 legged lemmings (all together and slow), to wipe the defiants who then stand at spawnpoint and QQ about how their rears just got handed to them, and the other group must be a premade. This works especially well when there is a guard NB/RS (Mozart, Ratconcito, catcocito, <fill in the FoTM rog here> etc) at The Vault (which I believe is Trions homage to ghey bars), who wipes the two or three derps trying desperately to get to statue.

    The key for defiants is to back cap the guardian zerg as they move from point to point. But that takes actually capping the points, which is a foriegn concept to most of the players it seems. (At the end of the one match I played this morning I had 7 caps, i think the rest of the team combined had 5, but we did manage a win.)

    In short, most other Playas r BADZ.

    I need 2 more dex wins for weekly and then you can have all the dex wins.

    Just lost another while we spent most of the match ahead... until guardians drew dumbass defiants to scope and... bye bye win.

    Exactly! I'm not sure what's going on here, but I'm a Guardian, and Defiants almost always win. I'm being dead serious. I've tried and tried and tried to instill some strat into my fellow guardians, to no avail. I'm embarrassed to be a guardian in this game. is there some kind of queueing glitch or something? it's really fishy. Once more, I'm being dead serious. not trolling.

    @Altherion You're either in a different/lower prestige bracket or you haven't hit lvl 60 yet (guardians lose every warfront lvl 50-60). Defiants normally do good but not in Codex. Nope. supabad
