It's Friday, Friday, gotta reset on Friday~
Well it's Friday, which means reset, which means a new week! This week is the final week of what's being called Season One, and the ratings are getting re-jiggled based on the actions of this week. A lot of tiers are gonna be shaken up, and a lot of people are gonna be cranky. Let's see who plays fair, who tries to force themselves into a better position and let's see who gets stomped into chalk dust. (oops)
Server's are getting used to their new members in their forever homes and everyone should be all settled now. It will be interesting to see what guilds jump around from this point on since there's the gem cost associated to it!
Not really much to report on, movers and shakers this week. Tier 1 US was pretty interesting. SoS had a national holiday at the start of the week which left them a few men down, though it looks like they were taking a vacation week that week. Blackgate gave a damn good fight and JQ ended up on top, very nearly with a score that matched the score of the others combined.
What I will say though is that it's a damn shame that Blackgate went down this week all because SoR were super stacked with rating. It kinda blew chunks that they were pretty much knocked out to tier 2 by about Wednesday. BG put up a damn good fight that week, and when it became apparent that no matter what they did they would be knocked out they seemed to have lost their spark. It was lovely having you in tier 1 BG, though [HB] scare the crap out of me, so gg.
But things like this are the exact reason why a ladder reset was called for. Ho hum!
Speaking of resets. The Matchups page ( http://mos.millenium.org/matchups#NA ) has the predictions for next week up at the bottom of the page. HOWEVER this will pretty much change every couple of hours throughout the whole week, also the guy running the site isn't quite sure how ANet's changing things up completely, so it may be a little off, though it's a good a starting place at any. Some pretty hilarious matchups in that bunch though I must say. Though poor little SBI right at the bottom :( I do genuinely feel bad for you guys
If you see any totally crazy and hilarious potential matchups, feel free to discuss below :D
I wish I could say more about what was going on across the board, but really, when the news came about the ladder reset, that pretty much became THE topic and a lot of servers either packed their bags and waited or just carried on playing regardless.
Let's see what the week brings and hope that the predictions are too mind bogglingly crazy next week.
So! How did your server(s) do this season? Inspired you to get more involved? Running away screaming from the game type?
