regardless of rank or title it is difficult to win with any consistency in AB. that in itself says alot about skill and experience in that particular arena.

I have been doing AB a little for just about a week now. Is it that hard to stay with your team, draw and or follow an arrow on a map, or realize that you can just let the other side mob around, and you will kill them in points by capping as teams?
Like I said, I'm new to AB and maybe I'm missing out on something really phenomenal that comes from playing in way that is normally bad.........

If you want good PvP, you shouldn't AB (and I say this as someone who floves AB <3)

Ah yes, the mobbing...
Usually when my team is mobbing, the best thing you can do is wait at the last capped shrine and stay there till the mob moves on, your squad can go for another shrine then.
As a squad, never try to outrun the mob, or try a different direction when you're in the middle of the mob, you'll be stalked to death because of that. If your team refuses to split up just go somewhere else because you'll be much more usefull on your own then in a mob.
As for team members feeding the enemy mob, that's something that is really beyond your control..

Mobbing = Fast Kills = Balthazar Faction = Keys = Gold.
Explains it all really. Let us mob away!

If you were new to AB you'd think that a high AB rank would mean something, and that you could trust a party of high-ranked players to do what you've described above. They don't. Most high-ranked ABers are the worst culprits when it comes to bad decision-making, mobbing and splitting - particularly if they are from one of the high-profile FFF guilds.
If you want a good party, add the names of people who play well to your friends list, then whisper them next time you want to do AB. Eventually you'll get a core of good players who play at the same time as you that you can party with regularly, and AB becomes a lot more fun and the wins roll in far more frequently. Unfortunately, there's still very little you can do about the people on the other two teams...
