    Another cycle where Ni nightcaps the hell out of the map to put DC in first, and where a self-proclaimed "small-scale" on EP with about 15 players takes Nikel and farms Ash/Roebeck and starts flipping keeps if they can't farm nooby pugs at 3am whilst EP loudly proclaims on the forums that they don't nightcap.

    Yeah, PVP is dead. ZOS put Cyrodiil on the deathbed, players finished the job. This *** isn't fun anymore and the hypocrites are getting extremely tiring.

    I always laugh when I see people complaining about 'nightcapping', as if the only valid play time is US prime time, and anything outside of that should be an offence punishable by bans.

    Nightcapping is just another way of saying, taking the map during low population hours. No one is calling for them to be banned.

    I think many players have forgotten what the main "objective" in PvP is.
    To take under control and defend as many keeps, towns, villages, mines, outposts as possible.

    That doesn't mean let the enemy keep their tri keeps, not playing certain hours of the day because nobody is on the enemy side, or sitting around watching a player on your alliance die because you think it is unfair to participate in a Xv1. The objective is clear and many of you fail at it.

    However, I do feel that there is a flaw in the system. I don't know what the solution is, but it is definitely not fun when there is a huge population gap and players just walk over the enemy. Who is to blame? Zeni or the players? I feel that zeni gave us a platform to play on but i feel the players failed in some aspects.

    @keto3000 what's up with AD's pop? They seem to come and go but nothing consistent.
    Are there no major guilds or do the majority of AD play another camp?

    I'd like to see more AD

    They were the ones night and day capping up until about the time school started back up so that's my hunch. They also were trying to hit DC trikeeps while EP had the hammer there last night as well.

    End of the day; they wine about the same things they do consistently when given the chance

    Yeah, all of the AD Nightcappers (Knights of Ni) moved over to DC. The nightcapping stopped when school started back as that's when Ni moved over to DC... yet you don't seem to acknowledge that at all. DC won their two campaigns due to off-hour gains.

    And yes, teaming up to take scrolls happens to EVERY faction. It's an opportunity for free points. DC backdoors BB every time EP hits Fare and BM, and DC and AD team up to gate EP, but I don't see you bitching about that either. If you want to call out hypocrites, start with yourself. :)

    AD has consistently had the lowest population outside of primetime out of the three factions, commonly having lowpop bonuses during EST afternoon when DC and EP are stacked. EP is by far the most populated.

    ********************************
    You all know that AD has traditionally been, as I call it, the "Bohemian faction" -- very independent, free-spirited types who band together when there are organized guilds pushing, but... as a community, we have never, consistently, been the strongest of the 3 factions in PvP main campaigns.

    This is reflected in the number of consistent Twitch streamers who are mainly DC/EP. AD has no regular Twitch PVP streamers anymore(many left or switched factions circa 2015-16).

    Dueling, 1v1, etc has been DC strong points for a long time. Their Twitch streamers help to keep that faction loyalty going. EP has traditionally, again, imo, been the 'organized group-styled' faction.

    Column formation type of pvp.

    AD has/is sometimes "on point" and often NOT. (I say this with faction love. LOL)

    I've played dedicated AD since beta, so I remember, like many ppl here, when AD was initially a strongly populated faction and we also had a good amount of public hype on Twitch/ youtube etc for AD PvP. Then, the "great migration of several large guilds and content creators, etc migrated from AD to DC and AD neverquite regained consistent faction strength again until this past Spring season 2019 when several organized guilds kept presence on the 24 hr map and Ni guild was consistently running as an AD guild at night (based on EST timezone) to keep the gains made during day hours.

    When faction lock took effect, there was flux in all 3 factions as ppl were adjusting to the faction lock, imo.

    AD still lacks a real presence in the form of major guilds that are consistent and faction loyal who want to build AD faction in long term. Our faction would definitely benefit from some dedicated & consistent AD stream content on Twitch and Youtube so new AD players can feel their faction is an equal contender on the field. AD also needs more veteran mentoring of newer players so the zone pugs are better trained for the low pop times.

    I feel that PvP is vibrant & properly competitive when all 3 factions are comparatively equal in strength, have strong faction loyalty and a level of training for the majority of their players. Then RvR battles become real competition between equals and the wins are hard fought and satisfying because they are fairly earned and not a due to low pop or highly skilled vs loosely organized and untrained random players struggling to figure it all out. More veteran mentoring is needed to build each faction then we will see some decent AAA PvP again.

    Now that holiday season is here & work slows a bit for me, I will help by trying to organize/train more AD pug groups/train new players late night (EST) again now to help.

    ***NOTE: I have many friends who play on all 3 factions, so I respect them all, however, I'm dedicated to AD, my team, win or lose. My remarks here are intended to be solely constructive and just my opinion of state of game.)
