We had been doing semi guild premade Ab’s, and had about 7-9 people playing at various times, we were winning most of the time, I even brought out my trusty Ab Strat Macro
/bg G1 gm G2 bs G3 lm then to farm. Cap what you keep, and have fun!
So its not going to be lauded as the best military strat, but it gives people a start to focus on – and because winning a bg is a team effort – its good to have everyone on the same page.
We started losing one BG, and two non guild member players started bagging out our realm and our guild – and that we were fail ect ect.. They pointed to their Hk’s and damage on the metres where they were the top 2.
I pointed out to them that it meant that they were HK farming.
They tried to explain it meant that they were good Pvpers in less then pleasant tones.
Firstly they disregarded the Strat Macro which weakened what ever Group they were in and decreased the likelyhood of a cap early on, their kill counts, and damage showed that they were not babysitting nodes, they were just chasing kills.
Now a Mobile attack Zerg type team with a high damage output could be quite useful as a strat, but what ever they thought they were accomplishing, they were only able to do it because other people were their support troops, and stayed behind being babysitters on the nodes we were managing to defend while they merrily disregarded working as a team and did their own thing.
Being half a premade doesn’t make us the ultimate authority, but we obviously have a communication advantage as we are more likely to be on vent, if they had worked with us, and not against us then our success could have been much like our other wins.
They also got personal, and went beyond the “Alliance sucks” that you often hear in Bgs – ( its quite funny playing on Horde side while BGing because they go through the whole ” Horde sucks” line of chat too) They started to attack my arena rating. I was Loling because I have never seriously done arena but this was the lengths they were going to – to attack us – I Don’t think the others had ever done arena so they had no rating to pick on.
I thought their attitude stunk but they weren’t affected too badley because of their kills they had earned more honor
