    The ABL vs. ROD drama got old and people needed another fight to keep them entertained.

    People need to blame some confounding factor for a perceived imbalance that leads to a loss. Server merges happened recently so that's the fotm complaint.

    Eventually they'll realize that the only consistent thing about their losses is...

    Players before the merger were divided. Most C1 players say C2 are bad and all wear pve gear and run in circles or play dps clerics. I can neither confirm or deny those allegations but some c2 are good, much like some c1 are good. Its a sea of bad with tiny life preservers floating around for the bads to grab onto.

    It is sort of like 2 fraternities at a college arguing over who is better.

    When the servers split into different clusters each cluster branched off into different playstyles by the playerbase. Now that they have converged again some people do not agree with the playstyles alien to their own. Reality is still the same as always some people refuse to switch specs to enhance chances of their team.

    I miss open world 20 v 20's. They always ended up like 20 v 65 but the first clash or 2 was always fun.

    The C2 spec of warden with a shield in codex is 100% my favorite build for the year. WHY DID WE NOT THINK OF THIS, C1?!?!?!

    We've already done the 5v5 thing. We lost, but twas fun at least, much better then steamrolling all the c2 wfs.

    I seem to recall, probably early SL or maybe even before, that euro servers were going on and on about unkillable teams, and near as I can tell that's because most warfronts were like 4 aoe healers 6 aoe dps, and nobody bothered with burst/st dps to actually break through the stream of aoe heals, because your worth was measured by the damage done column.

    It's weird how regions/zones/clusters/shards etc all seem to differ in play style/mentality.
