Still a fan bud. But I think you are being misguided a little. Thankyou for reminding us all again just how awesome and ultimate you guys in the NE quad are.
It would truly be wonderful if we can have a proper race on this server that doesn't devolve into mega confeds. The idea of having several teams strong enough to be in the mixer was what attracted a lot of people to come play a round on com2. Let's work towards that goal!
There are 4 larger Pre made teams large enough already to stand up for a race on their own. And 4 additional "wildcards" that joined us in DND, 2.01, Ikea and Duat.
Its already been demonstrated that DND and 2.01 have been working together from early on - and initially have the ambition to beat down on TEN. Combined they have over 250 accounts at present. Comparable numbers of accounts (more than all I think) than the 4 larger premades in TEN/Goats/GoW and Gunners. It would be awesome if DND and 2.01 combined could give a real crack at being a 5th major power on the server in their own right, they are both pre made teams with experienced players who have won servers. I think it's rubbish to suggest that 250 accounts full of people who are experienced and have won servers don't have the strength to be a real power in an end of server race. I think it would add a bit of fun to the server even if it is largely at the expense of TEN.
That leaves 2 wildcards in the middle in Duat and Ikea - both in a highly valuable position to influence the balance of power between the larger metas. So far they've been beating down on Goats and GoW and showing their muscle. The 4 wildcard teams so far have negatively impacted on 3 of the larger metas.
Let's just wait and see what happens. Lots of time to go - many things that could change.
