How factions gets things done (read with humor!)

How factions gets things done:

1. AD

Sheer numbers. No EOTS - trains or permablock trollsquads. 9/10 times when capping anything, AD stands underneath oil shower or suck up siege rain and just die like swarm of ants. Easiest AP farm game has to offer.

2. EP

EOTS heavy armor meta - trains. Pop some ulti and find the loneliest light armored enemy. Repeat 100 times.

3. DC

45 % trollplars / 45 % magDKs / 9 % sorcs and 1% bomber NBs. Stealing keeps and fighting only AD, when AD is pushed back to faregyl.

NB enthusiastic:
  1. Woodhippie stamblade - DW hard-hitter / PvE
  2. Know-it-all elf Magblade - Healer / PvE & PvP
  3. Hate-them-all elf Magblade - Destrostaff AoE monster / PvE
  4. Cyrodiil-Refugee stamblade - Stamina Tank / PvE

Go dominion or go home

Nightblade-Hipster. I played Nightblade before it was cool - from 1.5 onwards.

    Odd to see the huge differences on servers / platforms lol. Maybe include a server name and platform next time.

    1. EP - must fight dc and ad on both fronts. (East side of map), push to alessia at all costs. Doesn't know how to defend keeps.

    2. AD - must gate ep and take red home keeps, leaves roebeck and ash untouched through out day. 10 player gank squards.

    3. DC - must gate ep, massive zerg that runs over ad and ep at the same time. Most EOTS users here.

    Hilarious :) Thanks for approaching this with humor!
    I agree with Kerioko: of course the machinations by Team Purple / Green / Orange are the explanation for everything that happens! ;)

    Current Guilds (main): Project Nova
    Former Guilds (main): Lagacy ∙ Týr ∙ Dracarÿs ∙ Unfriendly Fire

    1: AD - 5 min till eval
    - Yes we only have 3 home keeps
    - Yes that is EP attacking Alessia
    - Everyone, time to take DC resources
    - Always has to deal with Team Purple! Why won't they fight each other for a change?

    2: EP
    - 100 man zerg is needed to take Bruma
    - DC owns Chal and Arrius, lets push Dragonclaw and Aleswell
    - All home keeps and scrolls gone, EP zerg found at Nikel fighting DC (While AD takes Ash)
    - Always has to deal with Team Green! Why won't they fight each other for a change?


    3: DC - entire strategy revolves around the great Chalamo!
    - If Chal is blue, time for the entire faction to push Roe, Nikel, and Brindle
    - If Chal is red, who cares if AD owns Ash and all the resources around Glade, Rayles, and Warden, all faction to Chal mine!
    - If Chal is ever yellow, we lose our minds, be prepared for a 4 hour, 3 way zerg battle with 1 fps!
    - Always has to deal with Team Orange! Why won't they fight each other for a change?

    OP, update your post with this. That's 100% correct.

    Also, I need to note that it's of vital importance to establish High King's ownership of Chalman's apple farms. Take Chalamo for the High King and the Covenant!

    Amazing how different things are on different campaign

    On mine

    EP

    Fight everyone, go after every keep and wonder why we can't take Chalman or Blue Road keep and wonder why when AD have Emporer and all the scrolls DC still want Chalman.

    AD

    Play early hours of the day and take all the keeps and scrolls and then Gate Camp forcing other player just to quit so they never get a decent number up

    DC

    Go after the Pact every time and slaughter them. They are the weakest and going after the most powerful group AD just be happy to come second.

    This is very true! DC is strangely all kinds of warped over 'it's a home keep!' Chalman :lol: I don't know what mystic powers it possesses to call DC players to it, but more lives have been claimed by that keep, mile gate, and mine, than anywhere else in Cyrodiil :sweat_smile:

    Haderus, EU, Saturday night

    1: DC
    - Signs peace treaty with EP
    - Signs trade agreement with EP
    - Signs defensive agreement with EP
    - Farms Bleakers with EP, defending vigorously against any AD that might stray near.

    2: EP
    - Signs peace treaty with DC
    - Signs trade agreement with DC
    - Signs defensive agreement with DC
    - Farms Bleakers with DC, defending vigorously against any AD that might stray near.


    3: AD
    - Half of AD takes over the map
    - Other half of AD try to assault Bleakers
    - Remain in small groups throughout the evening, cannot overcome the EP/DC coalition at Bleakers

    No matter how you feel about Bleakers farming - it seems to be allowed in the current rules and makes for very effective AP income. Every time I was online over the weekend we (AD) tried to take Bleakers, but we couldn't overcome the EP/DC coalition, at least not while I was online.

    Sarcasm is something too serious to be taken lightly

    I was born with the wrong sign
    In the wrong house
    With the wrong ascendancy
    I took the wrong road
    That led to the wrong tendencies
    I was in the wrong place at the wrong time
    For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
    On the wrong day of the wrong week
    Used the wrong method with the wrong technique

    Apologies, but I have not been playing much as of late due to real life issues, but would someone please explain to me what the following means:

    1. EOTS
    2. trollpar
    3. bomber NB

    Again, I admit I have not been keeping up, but I find constant use of jargon just kills discussions for those trying to get up to speed. Thanks in advance.

    EOTS: Eye of the Storm, the ultimate ability in the Destruction staff line

    Trollpar: a derogatory term for a magicka templar whose build allows them virtual immortality through a combination of blocking and Breath of Life.

    Bomber NB: also known as a bomblade, this is a magicka nightblade whose build is meant for taking down huge groups of enemies at once through stealth and the near-simultaneous use of several hard-hitting area-of-effect abilities (usually while dying the process).
    7-day PVP campaign regular 2016-2019, Flawless Conqueror. MagDK/stamplar/stamwarden/mageblade. Requiem, Legend, Knights of Daggerfall. Currently retired from the wars; waiting on performance improvements.

    Greetings, @casparian, thank you so much for the clear explanation of the jargon used here. I appreciate it.
