Some thoughts on PvP

Knowing the real number of marks you need is important. The stupid trinket(+4stm +20? spell penetration) is 30 marks not 20. Trotting all the way out to the stupid WSG vendor in Barrens just to find out you don' have enough marks is demoralizing.
Behold a shiny map!




The yellow is where I like to stay, I'm pre-emptive defense, and able to quickly run forwards and escort a flag runner if I need to. The red dots are where my team-mates should be if they would magically obey my thoughts. You would stay in Zone defense 90% of the time. Unless chasing an enemy with your flag. When escorting he second the next wave of escorts arrived you would take out anyone near bye and head back to your zone.




Last night I stayed in the flag room and hated the walls for screwing with my camera. This was a tactical necessity as no one else would.



I wish there was a magical score that would say: Zujoo caused 80% of the damage on 90% of the alliance flag runners.(Not that I did but yeah) Because when you -really- are playing defense... you can get some horribly low damage numbers and if yer slow you won't even have flag returns to prove you were helpful. At first I was thinking well, they should just keep track of the damage done to people holding the flag(and the healing) in a seperate column. But then what if you heal/damage someone who is healing/damaging the flag holder. Bleh.



It all comes down to: Sometimes playing defense makes you look like yer doin NOTHING. But being awake and fearing the rogue that took your flag and seducing the priest that came with him and dotting both of them up while Realreal stabbitates them.... priceless.


Speaking of:
Realreal the rogue, from last night was one of the best rogue's I've played with. Both offensively and defensively. Only thing I would ask for is more communication.


I didn't see Flaca last night... I gained 6 marks in 2 games last night. I think these are related.


LEVEL x0-x5 PEOPLE SHOULD NOT ENTER BATTLEGROUNDS. LEVEL A TINY BIT MORE AND YOU WILL BE A) MORE HELPFUL B) LESS DEAD C) ACTUALLY AFFECTING THE GAME. /whine


When your wife says "Honey, I need to cuddle...." Your brain needs to register this right away. Not after she's gone to bed. /sigh /fail /regret

Sadly, I've failed to register on that more times than I care to recount. She doesn't seem to understand me when I say, "But honey, I only need to farm one more Primal Shadow. Then it's cuddle time!"

It usually ends up with death-rays from she-who-must-be-obeyed and more alone time than I had wanted or intended on having.

@klaki Yeah I know... I completely dropped the ball. She's forgiven me now though but yeah... I need to:

@Arren yeah I was in the middle of WSG and was thinking "oh she came to watch me play a bit" or something like that....
