<p>For the love of god - GROUP UP! I have seen far too many situations where Q's has been owning us, simply due to the fact that they are grouped up, even though they are not guilded! Seriously - how difficult is it to understand that grouped ppl > solo ppl. Why miss out the group buffs? The focus fire?</p><p>I'm writing this, simply because I've had enough of seeing ppl, usually 10+ in numbers, run around solo, and yet fail to group up. Try it... I swear that you will win much more often and get those tokens.</p><p>Just letting out some steam - feel free to rant, even though deep down inside you know that I am right <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Most of us hate each other to much to grp with other people from other guilds: part of the whole dark evil persona complex we have.</p>

<p>Most freeps are just as bad as all the pansy ***** q scum, Im just not allowed to attack them.</p><p>Anyone who I dont know has my back is just a liability.  A couple extra random people arent going to make a difference standing and fighting against 5:1 odds, if they cant stay ahead of the q tide they just make me kill myself trying to save their lousy behind from the oncoming horde.</p>

That's my point, and that's why I would love to see more freeps grouping up. The keyword in your post would be the "IF you die" thing.. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

But also in WFP for example... where it is 1:1 ratio, and yet, the freeps gets their [Removed for Content] kicked by a well-oiled grp, simply due to the fact that the freeps doesnt focus fire / groups up.</p>

(note that this didnt happen back in the day when you actually had to share tokens with the other people who got the kill instead of magically duping hundreds of them out of thin air by killing one group)</p><p>Therefore freeps either roll in a guild group that can quickly burn the gimper q groups or as solos who can quickly burn the gimper solo q's while avoiding the massive zerg swarm of 9534925 q sk's.</p>

<p>watch this.. I can get this thread locked.... LAG!</p><p>Okay but on a more serious note, im not going out into CL until this insane lag is fixed, it is NOT FUN! Not even a little bit, im not going to go out and PVP in a group or solo when i have a 4 second spell delay.  I want to go out in my group of friends and hold our ground (we have a very solid little group) but Im not doing it in this lag.  We usually end up queing for BG's, not because we like BGs more than traditional open world PVP, but because BGs are lag free, and playing that is WAY more fun.</p><p>Im sorry, Id love to come out and fight you, but I cant bring myself to do it, certainly you understand, you are out in the lag too, you just must have a better stomach for it that I do, and power to ya for it.</p><p>But the lag is making my experience worse, and thus making yours worse as well.</p>

<p>TBH I just betrayed to Q side, you could never even get an invite 70% of the time just to zone in to a locked out instance just to help out, seems freeps are their own worse enemy.</p>

<p>Of course, no one would have to "cheat" if Sony made it so that if WFs were up in one instance then they are up in all instances of said zone. No other way to participate, due to each individual instance having it's own timer for when WFs will spawn.</p>
