What a joke.  MM was pushing out trash teams long before the server merge.  But now that the east is on a more even playing field with the rest of the nation i guess its time to finally complain...

Having played across both servers before the merge the East coast generally had a slightly higher skill base than West, I always attributed this to the fact clan wars was run on East.

Im an average player so is the game now harder yes, but it forces players to improve and tough it out with better players, As for all you uber players try mentoring players in-game subtle instructions like follow or pull back 

help newer players.

 There have always been good and bad teams, and considering it's happening  because of an influx of players from another server is just discriminatory and makes no sense at all.

Yes, it's either discriminatory or stupid, you can pick. And  you have every right to tell the waitress that you don't want tomatoes on your sandwich, but bringing that comparison just reinforces the idea that you think TOMATOES came with the merging. The Pc Judge gave his verdict assisted by a psychologist: Discrimination!

 

:facepalm: Someone needs to look up the definition of discrimination.

A couple of points Id like to bring up because some players are often complaining about "quality of gameplay" or some such thing.

 

Point 1.  Some players are under the impression that pub battles are "team" oriented. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is no Commanding Officer or even Platoon Leaders in pubs. In fact, if some perma-teal re-roll barks orders at the "team", many will do the opposite just for spite.

To have an effective team, there must be a recognized and followed authority leading it and that is just not the case in pubs.

 

Point 2.  Since pub battles have no real leadership, just self-appointed armchair Generals whom no one will follow, then one must realize that pub battles are actually 1 vs. 29 affairs. (2 vs. 28 or 3 vs. 27 if platooning)

 

Point 3.  Realizing you are 1 vs. 29, you need to further understand that the LOWER the average skill level is across the entire server, the EASIER it is for a better than average player to carry his battles.  Over a large sample, the enemy teams will all average out to... average. A better than average player will have, on average, slightly better than average teams due to the fact that he is always on every one of his own teams.

 

Point 4.  Better than average players should, therefore, be happy that the overall skill level of the game is declining (if that's even true) because the lower the average skill level is relative to their own skill level, the easier it will be for them to carry more often.

 

Point 5.  If team play is important to you, stay away from pubs… instead, do Stronghold Skirmishes, Team Battles, Clan Wars or Tournaments.

Point 5 you say do tournaments.There are currently no tournaments listed for NA and none for the forseeable future.I queried this the other day.I know Dance210 used to run the tournaments but she has been quiet for a long time.I personally think it's Meathead Militia's dirty fingers gumming up the works again.He couldn't organize a pissup in a brewery or a blowjob in a whorehouse.But I agree matches since the merjer have gone for a [edited].My WN8 has gone up and my WR has gone done.And before you start your stat mud slinging I'm a squash and that's probably the best it's gonna get considering the number of battles played and my age and disabilities.Have at it unicums.
