I've spent close to three weeks diving into conversations with warband builders and guildleaders of known guilds across both realms to try and compile a gathered idea of the state of the "main-game" aspect on RoR. Many of the players who spend time and effort in building organized events, guilds or just warbands seemed to me to have entered a state of unhappyness with how the potential of this lovely game is slowly getting pushed into a slightly worse product but also seeminly getting ignored as if open Realm vs Realm is a finished product that everyone enjoyes for how it is currently being played.
I took it on myself to reach out to most of the corners of the server, get in touch with leaders & builders and get their perspective on how their oRvR experience currently is or has developed over the last while. This post is merely meant to serve for a feedback to the devs to give them insight in how many hundreds of players are spending extra effort in building and playing orvr as their main focus, while also enjoying other aspects of the game such as scenarios, pve dungeons, ranked etc. But still feel orvr is the main appeal potential of this game.
Lets hear what they had to say.

If your guild is not included here, id still love for more guilds to chip in and share their feedback on the area I asked the above guilds about. "how does your guild or roster find the current state of oRvR (ignoring forts and city).
All of the quotes guilds have agreed to have their quote shared in this combined feedback post, and they feel like this represent not only themselves but their guilds values and view on the oRvR state.
Wha the Devs want to do with this feedback is up to them. Several of us have tried to bring attention to how many of us find orvr in need of a slight tweek to how the open zones function, should it promote more killing, splitting, zerging, sieging or whatever. What we simply want to do with this, is to show that we are many hundres of players who log in week after week and spend time organizing and playing open rvr. And most of us are not too happy with the current version of it, and the neglect.
- Bombling & the builders.
