Can someone who knows WvW math better explain to me what is going on here? Some of the changes make sense, like Fort Aspenwood trading spots with Maguuma (if you thought I hated Season One, talk to my buddy, the casual player from Maguuma. “I zone in and get run over by like 30 people”), and you see other servers trading spots, a few trading tiers in the process. And then Dragonbrand is being put in tier 5.
Hey, that’s our tier. Was it something I said? This is like week 8 of Season One, because DB is bringing as many WvW players as NSP and IOJ combined. The discussion thread includes DB WvWers reacting to their swelled numbers from casual folks soaking up points in the “free win” week. IOJ, remember, is one of the servers trying to fall to its new level after most of its WvW guilds transferred out during for Season One. Well, this will certainly help, except that NSP seems to be even more depressed than us.
I just don’t see any number on that chart by which DB fits in the same tier as IOJ and NSP. They even have a little green arrow saying they are heading up. So they drop two tiers but not change in ranking? I don’t claim to know the math, but it does not seem to be working, unless there is just a bit of randomization to “spice things up.”
