Avenger Of The Pass tagIt 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.

Flukks [HK] tagIn light of the recent Anet announcement, I would like to propose a BP server meeting at reset on Monday evening (Feb 5th), to be held on the Borlis Pass discord. Many of us have lived and played together on this server for years. Do we attempt to protect and retain these relationships, or shall the upcoming world changes scatter us to the four winds? Please join us at reset on Monday, Feb 5th, to discuss. Thank you,
- Flukks

Flukks [HK] tag  It's definitely too early for any decisions to be made. The only objectives for Monday's meeting are as follows:
1) for the BP community to reconnect,
2) to get a sense as to which guilds might be interested in forming an Alliance, and
3) to accumulate and consolidate a list of questions and concerns.

As to the second item, every guild will need to (and has the right to) make this decision on their own. And every guild's decision MUST be respected. For some, this will be a time to strengthen old bonds. For others, it will be the time to part ways. There are no wrong decisions. Each guild will need to make their decision based on what is the best option for THEM. Let us all be mindful and respectful of that.

Regarding the third item, I'm planning to consolidate a list to post to the official forums on behalf of this community. The hope is that such a post will get Anet's attention and/or carry more weight, as it's coming from a large group of players.
[Howl] Tim tag  For what it’s worth my only input to the new changes is that I am totally in favour of them. Will be nothing but good for wvw imo.
Avenger Of The Pass tagThe light of the Borlis Nation may have dimmed greatly since the golden age, but compared to the darkness on other servers it is the most brilliant sun. Who today raises the battle cry for SoS or SBI?

Yet that is exactly what happened when our dearly missed comrade Shamira returned for a night and led the people to victory. I understand she'll likely be busy with studies for a while. Maybe I'm in the background a lot more now, but news like this is enough to make me want to rise from my grave.

12th Star Guards Squads A-Z tag  Are you undead Avenger O_o o_O Borlis Pass will have to collectively find away to ensure you cannot escape from your grave. Perhaps you have been possessed by Zhaitan :-) Say it isn't so Avenger... be strong do not become one of the Risen o_o
Avenger Of The Pass tag  "Grave" just because I been gone studying some, and in roleplaying I always mained myself as a centuries-old Ascalonian ghost character from GW1 times, a mesmer with the [Illusion of Life]. Booo. But seriously, I'm here to stay and still making the occasional convoluted plans for BP's imperial world domination (more on that soon; it involves the TP).

Guess who I found on the exact same forum, by the way! [link]
There is still much work to be done, including CSS and making custom graphics. [link] gives a good idea where I'm thinking to go with this.
wow! thought I clicked on the wrong link. Good work.
Looking good so far!
The reconfiguration of a dead site into a newspaper format inspired by the Tyrian Herald will take a bit of time. If anyone is still reading, please be patient while the bugs are worked out and new graphics are created.
