WvW Game Update
WvW updates have now been pushed to March to allow more time for game developers to test and polish the update before release. Read here for the thread.
World Rating Rest No longer
Anet finally decided not to reset the world ranking which would have been a disaster for Tier 1 and Tier 2 servers. I do feel bad Sorrow’s Furnace who is seems to be dominating and stuck in Tier 8 for a very long time.
Sanctum of Rall in Tier 1
Finally SoR has fought its way up
to Tier 1 status server! It may have been a bit controversial mainly coming
from Blackgate server who SoR kicked back to Tier 2. Sanctum of Rall entered tier 1 as the second place server. Jade Quarry first and
Jade Quarry vs. Sanctum of Rall vs.
SoR first Tier 1 match up! This
was an exciting match up that many have been waiting for and apparently a lot
of other people on SoR as well. Reset night was chaotic. Many guilds including
Vengeance could not get all our guilds members in any of the borderlands. I
believe 6 of us made it in on the first night after reset. Ques were very long.
First week in tier 1 SoR did very well and took the first place lead over the weekend and held it for 3 days. SoR began to loose the lead during the weekday. First week in tier 1 showed that SoR still has time coverage gaps but we also knew our Asian guilds would not be on this week. SoR finished third in this match up with JQ taking first and SoS taking second.
Second Week match up is still on going, but it appears that JQ will take first , SoR will take second and SoS to third place. During the two matchs it was evident that SoR has the strongest North American Prime time, JQ strongest overall coverage, and SoS strongest oceanic server.
This still has been a very fun T1 match up and it shows that SoR does belong in tier 1 and will be staying.
New items are in the gem store for Valentines day including Roses, New Red Dye Pack, and Self Style Hair Kit. More information can be found here.
