Avenger of the PassIt used to be fun, because we were all united in purpose even though we were losing, absorbed in trying to do something about it no matter how hard it became. Borlis Pass lived way past its expected expiration date and survived two implosions since the fateful days when Gen. Wolfstride returned and I first took up the tag.
We stopped getting anywhere the moment the whole people was no longer determined to fight the situation as a unit no matter what happened. After linking, BP would make push after push after push to get somewhere in the world, but only when it was succeeding and not when it reversed. One of those liberation campaigns nearly succeeded, when we were momentarily carrying CD. Then it suddenly fell like a domino effect because people were no longer mentally prepared for long, drawn-out campaigns the way we used to be.
Keep this in mind when world restructuring hits and we come out of hibernation. It takes real determined focus and big audacious dreams to build and run a guild -- or an alliance, and we need to be determined to make a mark on WvW's future whether we have 3 people or 300.
