Premade- X realm Av’s: Resistance is futile

While waiting for a friend to finish a fail Toc 25 Run I logged into the vent of the premade AV group that we are seeing being organised a fair bit in trade channel.  Getting people from our Battlegroup, Bloodlust into a vent, and organising a premade by all getting into the same AV Queue.

I had never done it before,  and I was getting a little confused.

“If it doesnt pop for you get into  vent chat”  ?  Huh ?  Why?  and I see some peoples  name change on vent to ( C) in front..    Oh 

“Afk Check – Change your note to   ”

“Que in 1, 2, 3”

I managed to follow them for one BG – and then failed by not understanding the bit about not entering untill we checked how many people didnt get it,  and  me  hitting enter BG when the wrong number popped for most people. So I left the vent, and  spent the next half hour in a fail AV.

I had another go later and it all made so much more sence.  I now knew what standing on the lamp post meant  ( to identify how many in the BG were pugs)  The strat was getting familiar and the premade raid leader shooting off commands like a machine gun.  The best leader was a Woman who I swear had the battle map engraved in her brain in real time.

These people were professionals.

    “Groups 1 & 2 go..   Recallers go now…   Get back on the choke point.  Don’t stand on fail hill  ( you know that hill outside drek that people always bounce around on while waiting to go into Drek – well that is fail hill and I will never stand on it again)   “Go left of Belinda its the fastest way Do not stop for anyone,  do not help anyone,  do not stand near the edge of a tower you will get pulled off and die ect.  ”

It wasn’t about achievements, it was about maximizing honor, and was still a lot of fun  ( it’s always fun to win)

Does the fun of a BG change when it’s organised? – It was awesome to be involved in such a well orchestrated premade of that scale, and yes by being ‘lead’  we succeeded in every BG we went into,  firstly because we had firm leadership or more so a ‘leader’  that didn’t just post a strat on start up, and then not maintain control and also  that everyone in that channel was there to win, and willing and open to being lead.   If you didn’t do what you were told,  there was the threat of being kicked, and rightly so.  You are doing this premade to take instructions and contribute to the success of the group.    Any  gung ho – I’m gonna do what I want thing is a threat to that sucess.

On the down side the premade was imposing itself on the randoms that managed to slip in with us, and the sheer number of us,  meant that we were really playing our own game and they could either go along for the ride and win,  or they could try and fight against the maelstrom of our army.  Might this affect the enjoyment of their game?  It could.  Did we care?   Nope.

    I can’t see how anyone would have a problem with being a random in a premade. Its a BG dream come true to end up in a group of people working together.

      @Ophelie – people have fun being difficult. – ” Fail strat” says one Pug person who managed to slip into an AV with us and the groups were instructed what to do/where to go. Yeah we won dispite him trying to pull Drek when we weren’t ready, and mumbling something about fail healers. There is also the downside of a premade. One friend was in a Bg and pretty quickly booted from an the AV as an afker before the BG had started. The premade had voted him off the island because he wasn’t one of them.

    Sounds like Sola, glad you enjoyed it. In response to the hate on pugs, I’m constantly trying to get my leaders to recruit the pugs instead of ostracizing them or worse yet, take advantage of the broken afk system and report them AFK.

    BTW, priests make the best leaders because they can mind vision and make sure everyone is where they need to be }:)

    By the way, if you’re on the Bloodlust battlegroup, AV weekend is coming up, and we’re expecting to be very busy – like, 2 full AVs and potentially a 3rd running ’round the clock.

    We’ve also been very successful running IoC, AB and EotS on their respective holiday weekends, so get in while the gettin’s good.

    As long as a leader’s on, we’re always running!
