On entering the BG, in the flag room we were told 5 man ‘premade in vent – clear the middle we are going for flag
5 people in tandem went and got the flag – protected the flag on the way and then turtled the flag in the flag room and as far as they were concerned were doing their job by sticking unfailing to each other and the flag.
It still took us till the timer 25 min to win with only 2 flags. Did we win – sure. But they were so stuck in their little group that they didn’t try to prevent our flag being taken on their way back down. Their only goal was to get the flag. Not kill the horde flag carrier who ran just a little to the left of their group because it wasn’t their self designation job.
When I asked was anyone trying to go for our flag the leader said
“My Team is with me and the flag”
2 people as soon as they saw premade went and started honor farming at the horde graveyard. Died, and went back and did it again – so there was me going for the flag, one person who got reported for AFK – and the last person was alternating between suicide runs and trying to hang out with the 5 to protect the flag,
Horde decided to turtle, so getting back our flag was proving to be impossible.
The Fabulous five were being so narrow minded in their strat – and even claimed the reason for victory as being all thanks to them.
The biggest advantage that a premade on vent has over a group of pugs is that they can communicate a lot faster. Offer reports on flag status, incommings, outgoing, Yet there was no communication necessary for them. they were like drones. It was kind of funny watching their little yellow dots on the BG map sticking so close to each other – any information they had wasn’t communicated to the BG – they didn’t care about what else was going on – didn’t ask who was going for the flag – or get involved in our discussion about how to get around the turtle with two people going for a flag. They had done their job, and that was it.
I don’t understand why they are willing to wait 25 min a bg to win, when they have a premade advantage and could have used that better than having tea party’s in the flag room.
