Regarding WvW matchups, don't despair

Here is what Anet said: 

"We will be resetting glicko volatility and deviation for all worlds to the same value, but leaving their rating unchanged.

What this means is:
The first matchup will use current placements (T1 worlds vs T1 worlds, T2 worlds vs T2 worlds, etc.)
The reset volatility and deviation values will come into effect at the end of that match.
Worlds that win, especially by a large margin, will have their rating increased by a larger amount than normal.
Likewise, worlds that lose, especially by a large margin, will have their rating decreased by a larger amount than normal.
The result is that when a world no longer is meant to be in a specific tier, they’ll move out of it more quickly."

This week we are paired with Fort Aspenwood, they are Tier 2.  So, we have opponents that are in Tier 2.  If we lose by a larger margin (Likely) we will move out of Tier 2.  Next week we will fight against foes of a lower tier.  If we lose again we continue to descend until we reach a tier appropriate for us.  Then we can expect to take second or first and stop our descent.

This will repeat every 2 months after a server regrouping.  The weeks when we are up against the top tiers and getting stomped are hard, don't get discouraged, don't despair.  If we grow our numbers and raise our skills we will be able to hold our own against higher and higher tiers.  I hope that knowing how it works will help you through the tough times.

There is a post on the official GW forums describing some of the current activity on the Fort Aspenwood server.  Playing in the evening Hawaii time, I have seen some new players on the Sanctum of Rall server who may have transferred over when we were linked with Dragonbrand and now when we are paired with FA.

I have been having so much fun in WvW since coming back to the game, this sounds quite promising.

Hello everyone,

I wanted to let you know that the mixed borderlands will be coming with Tuesday’s release! This means that the red borderlands will now always be the Desert Borderlands and blue and green borderlands will always be the Alpine Borderlands. Changing the map will require an estimated 45-90 minutes of WvW downtime around the time of the release. This change also requires us to end the match early (on the Tuesday before the release), and run a new match from Tuesday to Friday. As a reminder, that Friday is also when new world links will be happening.

Big week! We return to the desert and say goodbye to Fort Aspenwood. Wont have to deal with their toxic players anymore but going to miss seeing some of their commanders. Had to have had the most trolls on any server weve been paired with so far.

Not sure how ArenaNet will be linking servers next week, but looking at the Leaderboard on the GW2 official site, SoR seems to be in a spot where we could possibly be linked with three other servers like Crystal Desert, Kaineng, Borliss Pass, and Eredon Terrace are in the current matchup.
