Thornblade NA = Dead

**I am not blaming anyone below. Play how you like, when you like! Just stating the obvious.**

Stick a fork in it already! Who from North American time zone is going to want to play here anymore with the overwhelming late night and daytime presence of AD?

Locked pop vs 1 bar is demoralizing and will lead to more and more people quitting or moving to a different campaign.

I wish there were only 2 campaigns, 1 non-vet, 1 vet or some type of population balance for current servers.

The best times for me in pvp have been when Wabbajack was always triple pop locked and the scores were all close. The first half of Thornblade 1.0 was also much like this, but it was a handful of guilds that played almost around the clock that kept it close for the non-ad factions.

    Is this our Congrats Thornblade AD Victory thread already? Everyone moved servers is all except for some of the AD that didn't want to.

    I'm one of those 12 hour a day pvp'ers. I log in at 8am and join PUGs till my guild's events happen in the evening. With that said, I see a lot of what's going on in Thornblade.

    I wanted to try and stay with Thorn. I really did. I had a lot of hope, but it's dwindling fast. My players can't even get through gates anymore without being ambushed and morale is very low. To have the only 30day campaign ruled over like this is getting tiring.

    I don't see what is so fun about PvDooring. Get a large zerg. Attack an empty keep. Fight off a few NPCs. Kill 0 players. Take keep. Get 500 AP. Repeat for all other keeps on map while rest of the population sleeps.

    The most fun times in PvP are when all three populations are locked. There are usually 3 massive battles underway with pugs, and a few guilds strategically sneak behind enemy lines and try to disrupt the balance. This is PVP. This is fun.

    500 AP? That's only if you have the quest. More like 120 for an empty keep.

    I do not know why a lot of people left Thornblade. It was the top server when it opened then half way through a bunch of EP left, then DC then Ad took over. chillrend is now the top server and I do not know why.

    Dead? I've been playing there for a little over a week now and it's been full with people anytime from 8PM - 2AM EST.... like... major battles happening.

    My only concern is WTF is wrong with EP... everytime I check all 3 sides are full, but seems like we always got outnumbered... There are 2 full raids of red last night defending keeps over keeps yet we kept getting steamrolled by the bazillion yellows keep after keeps... :neutral_face:

    I was on til 5 am Pacific time with just a handful of other EP and AD had a full zerg going. Two bars on AD to one each for EP and DC. We tried defending against them at Kings, but they would just come back with larger groups when we wiped them til we couldn't hold them back anymore.

    The only way this will ever be fixed is if they can somehow make sure there are fair numbers from all sides at all times. If EP or DC had a massive oceanic presence, they would be doing the same thing at night.

    From an EP point of view however, I logged in last night, saw the map and switched my home campaign, as it seemed there was no point any longer in even trying to PvP in Thornblade.

    Be sure to use the campaign to grab easy ecouting mission from then return to your normal campaign and so on easy ap and good way to past time between fights elsewhere.

    Edit: This is more a suggestion for people needing an easy if not a bit slow way to change campaigns and lack ap, it beats waiting 30 days and takes about an 1 hour to an hour and a half.

    You know no one does that anymore right?

    It is literally one of the slowest AP generators out there.

    Even though ive seen you post about it before, youre on this campaign to point out the people who did it five months ago... its dead jim.

    I probably shouldn't speak for someone else, but the decision of all of APAC to join one faction and pile on one server makes it unfun (technically, not a guild per se)

    Having the server reset to all yellow every night while I sleep is neither competitive nor fun. EP and DC "were" competitive in NA prime-time, but it made no difference, so everyone left.

    /shrug.

    No quite everyone. Vokundein stuck it out as the other EP guilds went to Chillrend. But, toward the last half of the campaign we seemed to be the only organized EP group running most nights we raided.

    It's now gotten to the point that I'm finding it hard to convince our members that staying on Thornblade makes sense.

    That's too bad, but the overnight (and now primetime) population imbalance makes it tough - especially for the PvE folks who rely on the buffs to run competitive "end game" content.

    :(

    wow...lets see how long it lasts. I have a theory on an AD run campaign. They will treat the map the way they treat arrius mine when they camp it.
