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.
Flukks [HK]In 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
Avenger Of The PassThe 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.
