I don't know if this was said or not, but I am not going to read through tons of comments.
Need it because without it one faction will die off and then the game will die. Right now, no one wants to play destro. Everyone is playing order 24/7/365 a year. Look at fort stats, 6 or 8 forts taken by Order, 0 forts taken by destro. Week after week after week after week.
As much as I love playing order, I have been playing destro recently because quite frankly, I am tired of zerging. It's boring as heck after a year straight. But hey, I am a player who likes a challenge and not easy mode.
EDIT: please do not bring LOTD being dominated by destro in replies to my comment. LoTD does not count. Order players do not want to face the possibility of a real no zerg fight so they stay in the lakes so they can keep zerging.
Yep I've said this many times, if you keep zerging the other faction long enough, eventually they will stop going into the RvR lakes, or even trying. I took a 2 years break, and came back 2 weeks ago, since I've been back the only time I see dest doing anything is in LOTD, when it comes to keeps, forts, they normally don't even bother defending. Every day I see Order zerging along, taking empty keeps, forts with 10 or less defenders, and think they are doing great because they zerged the other guys so hard they gave up.
The last time Dest invaded Altdorf was over a month ago back in October, the time before that was back in Aug, so in the last 3 months, Dest has gotten to Altdorf 2 times, vs Order zerging IC every 3 days for months. Something needs to be done, because if it continues you`ll end up with a one faction game and no reason to even bother playing, as it is slowly becoming a PVE game, and not what it was intended to be.
I have old Dest toons I made back in 2016 that I haven't really played in 4 years mainly due to Order was the underdog back then, and needed help as they lost most of the time, however I cant see any reason to keep playing my order toons, just to PVE my way to victory taking empty keeps, and forts, when I log on and see order doing that, i log off, no reason to play if its PVE , there are better PVE games out there.
Guess Its time to dust off my old Dest toons, as playing order is boring. I`ll see my old Alliance members Bene, Ctnk, Gimlie, Bitterstone, out in the Lakes, dont zerg me to much lol
