    Tier 1 NA shakeup.

    Just linking this, think it's amusing for many reasons.

    http://gw2.junkiesnation.com/2013/02...guild-shakeup/

    We are also hearing rumors swirling of MERC and ND following them thanks to a generous offer by the Blackgate server to fund the gem transfers for both guilds. (Side note, MERC advertises a 1500 player base and ND advertises an 850 player base).
    lololololol.

    Drama? Top Tier splits after said drama? People migrating to other servers in order to exact vengeance on originator of drama? Incentives for transfers? I can't remember where I said this would happen, but I totally nailed it. Probably in game at some point, or maybe to a SoS inhabiting friend.

    Although I'm kinda bummed cause I was hoping to get away from playing against those (now ex-SoS) guilds for a while, zzzz.

    So SoS gets renamed to Blackgate basically?

    What is this drama with TSYM (or whatever the guild's initials are)?

    Finally, I have to say my sympathies for all of those people here who went to SoS with the express purpose of being on a top-tier server. (Come join us at Kaineng.)

    Similar to cities offering tax incentives to get a company to build here instead of there.

    Yes, but it suggests people spending lots of RL money to get an in-game advantage, which is kinda ridiculous imo. Not that I doubt the existence of such people, rather I find it ridiculous that they'd spend that kind of money on accounts other than their own for reasons having little to do with generosity (afaik).

    Yeah I don't think they quite thought through the cost of buying transfers for that guild, it's hyooooge.

    So leave one bandwagony server for another bandwagony server? (I do say this being well aware I'm resident of the most stacked server right now, so please don't take this as an insult :D )

    Actually, Dii pretty much decided to stick to Kaineng regardless of what happens, bandwagon-wise. I certainly can't vouch for other guilds, nor do I actually care. I care about being on a server with as many people from this forum as I can.

    Well, we did pick Kaineng because it was one place to be (SoS was a close call) but decided it was the final transfer.

    Server-hopping is a very expensive thing for a guild, and to what purpose? Personally, so long as servers are ranked, it will be fun and challenging in any of the top 50% servers. I'd be scared that populations get too lower at the bottom ones, but then queue times at the very top ones is not a good thing either.
