Hiya -- so as I'm sure you are aware, getting irritated with the other side often comes with misconception on what the other side is doing. I thought I'd share our perspective on what was going on. From our perspective, we had a good group, and the creeps had a good group (I didn't see you out during this time btw), and we kept trying to find the creeps to have a nice open field fight. Instead we'd roam around for long periods of time finding no one, and go PVE something to get their attention. Every single time we'd get to a point where we had a LOT of npc aggro on us, a huge number of creeps would show up and we'd of course get crushed due to the combo of npc aggro (typically including a tyrant) and the creeps themselves. So we kept trying to figure out ways to A. get attention to where we were so we could have a good solid fight, and B. not get ourselves into a situation where we had a bazillion NPCs on us. We'd wait a while and go ahead and take a keep or whatever because frankly that's all we had left to do with no creeps appearing. We could find like a few small groups of creeps but it's no fun killing 2 creeps with 24ish freeps. Rinse repeat -- went to the delving at one point for something to do. Came out and tried to find creeps more. I think this is where you came in - we found y'all at TR and were expecting some serious resistance. Given the previous encounters it seemed like bringing goldie was the only way we could make it a fair fight. Turned out there weren't enough creeps to have warranted goldie so I mean ... sorry? We did have a pretty cool fight up at Isen soon after that that we lost miserably but was entertaining. (again while we had the NPCs on us)

Anyway, sorry you weren't having any fun. We weren't either. FWIW I've never been in a freep raid that WANTED to PVE out there. I've joined one before (and actually only one) and I dropped it pretty quick. That's not to say they don't exist. Just wanted to relay how things went from my perspective. Sounds like you got caught in the middle of it all.
