Interest Survey for PvP Event

Greetings everyone,

 

Now that the next ranked PvP season has begun, I would like to assemble a crew to see how far up the ranks we can climb! Depending on how much interest there is, we could form separate groups based on experience and current rank. For me to be able to lead this event, I would have to schedule it on either a Monday or Thursday, or on Saturdays in the morning/afternoon. I have found that running in an organized group is perhaps the best way to get as many wins as possible in PvP.

 

Let me know if you'd be interested or have any questions. Thank you :-)

I might be interested, but my schedule prevents me from being consistent.  What times were you thinking? Im on the East Coast and I usually cant log in until 730pm or 10pm depending on the week.

If we do it in the evening I could totally plan it to work for you around 730 ET :)

As there seems to be some interest in spvp, here are guides written by Zoose of Team PZ which recently won the GW2 Pro League:

https://teampz.com/guides/

 

Note that the first guide on Winning PvP does not include the latest changes to the meta.  Thieves and Warriors are back in favor.

I suggest that you try to group together based your PvP League rank---Amber, Emerald, Sapphire, etc.  If you have a group of two Ambers, two Emeralds, and one Sapphire, your team will likely face a group of Sapphire players.  ArenaNet changed the matchmaking formula from Season One because higher ranked players would group with a single Amber player to get favorable matchups.

You don't necessarily need a full group of five players.  A group of three can help win the match especially if you can play the bunker or support professions like Tempest, Druid, Scrapper or Chronomancer using portals.

Any news about this? Do we have an event? A group? a collection of souls?

Yesterday, some guild members were explaining in guild chat about their bad experiences in PvP (long losing streak, inexperienced teammates).  I have some suggestions which may help.

If you are doing the Year of the Ascension League achievements, load three of your characters into the Heart of the Mists at the start of your PvP session.  Each of the four parts of the Year of the Ascension requires the player to win a specific number of matches with different professions.  Before the match begins look at your team's composition and the opposing team's composition.  If you are playing a guardian and your team has two other guardians, consider switching to another class especially if the other team has three or four condition damage professions.  If you are playing a longbow ranger, and the opposing team has three thieves definitely switch professions.  Be flexible and try to improve your odds of winning the match.

When I play during the league season, I set a limit of three consecutive losses which if reached means I do something else either in the game or log off.  You can set your own limit just don't continue playing when you are not enjoying the game.  A losing streak could mean that ArenaNet's matchmaking system is working against you.  Look at this post in the GW2 forum:

https://forum-en.guildwars2.com/forum/game/pvp/Matchmaking-seems-kinda-odd-eh

The attachment provided by the original poster shows that he, a Legendary ranked player, was teamed up with three other Legendary rank players and one Diamond player versus a team of five Diamond players.  According to the poster, all players were solo players and this occurred in the three matches he played.

Chaith of the Astral Authority pro league team recommended playing only during the NA prime time when the pvp population is higher to increase your chances of getting better teammates.  I've done that this season and have had winning streaks of five and four games as a solo player.

Good luck to everyone this season.
