<p>Getting a broadcast about free updates at the Xroads CL only to zone there wondering and be dead before all the Qs can render is real classy.</p><p>Only thing worse than letting everyone exile over and make it a 4:1 ratio would probably be assisting the Qs in gaining their easily leeched updates.</p>

<p>Did he say WHOM was going to get the free updates or were you a greedy gizzard expecting to be the one rolling the Q?</p>

<p>I was not expecting PvP updates at all. the message was "Free updates at the Xroads CL". There for sparking my interest as to what was going on. So rolling in there solo against stacked groups. Nice try on the spin though.</p>

<p>Lol - was not trying to spin anything.  I was commenting more on the expectation of free updates - I found it funny. </p>

<p>You didnt anticipate that a billion people were going to go there like you did?</p><p>What exactly did you expect to happen?</p>

<p>Seeing as he almost immediatly logged off from the freep side I thought it was pretty [Removed for Content] obvious...I'd assume he switched to a q since pvp looks much more visually appealing to anyone watching from the point of view of the faction with a 10:1 numbers advantage...</p>

You pretty much had to be braindead to think he wasnt just trying to create a moshpit for amusement.</p><p>Personally I thought it was pretty hilarious.</p>

<p>He never actually logged in, he just broadcasted to teh whole server.  I'm guessing it was a mt to fp because it kind of was free updates, for Qeynos anyways.</p>

<p>I guess I must under estimate the productivity of Qs then. Because if you all are sitting around in preformed groups with nothing to do... Maybe some of you should come over to the freep side so there can be PvP again.</p><p>He did log in, on the freep side...</p><p>I undestand that the Qs would be doing the same thing that the freeps were doing. But to have over 5 fully formed groups at the Crossroads before I can run out of immunity is rediculous.</p><p>Lets say it wasn't preplanned, it's still a set up since he knew that we would get wiped like nothing. Learn some definitions.</p>

<p>I didn't go because I could kinda sense it was a trap but regardelss I think what Shank is getting at is that it was a huge d**k move on Olihins part.   I only hope this game gets better fast!</p>

<p>My group was 1 of the supposed 5 preformed that were out there.  We were running around Stonebrunt and doing BGs, saw the message, and ran out there because hey, he said free updates.</p><p>And about it getting better fast, LOL.  They already said PvP is for the most part being ignored until they finalize the next "expansion" (aka all their time is now being spent on this F2P BS).  Soon, you'll have to insert a quarter everytime you want to engage somebody in PvP.</p>
