Welcome to pre-expansion pvp, when every freep can faceroll if they choose and a coordinated fraid will dominate. It's just part of the life cycle of pvp in this game, the repetition of which should be an indicator to anyone who takes pvp seriously to not do so. I don't blame any players, this happens every expansion cycle.
Come the new expansion, with new class changes, reset on gear and LI's, it will be a much different place. We will settle accounts with a good dust-up.
I know I'm a new face to the moors over the past few weeks, and certainly not as experienced as most of you here. However, Hinellas inspired me to at least add my two cents based on the perspective of someone who just got here. I'll agree with the expansion cycle causing an imbalance between freeps and creeps, because the only reason I'm in the moors (and many of my freep buddies) is because we are bored with farming 6mans and doing raids. Now we are in there every night, and at first the grams farms were exciting (I needed the comms cus I'm a greenie!), and learning how to play my captain in a PvMP setting keeps it fun.
Now that I have my gear, I went over creep side to spend all those extra comms. A friend of mine has a warg pack tribe he pulls out with his guild once or twice a week. Firstly, creeps are nicer. As squishy and green as my warg was, I was doing my best to get out there and at least stun some freeps for the higher ranks to gank. Thank you Doctor for being kind enough to heal me. Back to the point, I respect creeps much more and I'm far more willing to switch sides when the fight feels uneven, and hopefully bring my friends with me. Once Helms Deep arrives, the cycle will repeat, because I certainly won't be in the moors for a while. The scales will tip the other way. Kudos to Henellas for the post though. She's instilled some loyalty to creep side for me!
Yes yes, all the freeps need to turn into creeps, don't worry I will stay on freepside and continue to show how to successfully play a freep. To quote a friend of mine, "Step 1, roll face on keyboard. Step 2, repeat step 1 until you win." Shame most freeps have no idea how to do this successfully.
There is no loyalty to creepside. 95% of them are there, as yourself, due to boredom. And most have ranked freeps. And, sadly, most flip to the easier side. Make no mistake between flipping sides to "help matters" and loyalty. Its simply a selfish motive. As it should be, since it is a game and we are here to derive pleasure in a selfish manner.
If latching onto the bosom of a self proclaimed crusader makes your day a little brighter, then knock yourself out. I think most of us have at one time or another found our shepherd, and forsook all notions of independence, to get that which we are all here to get. Rank.
Your poignant statement above rang more true than you know, since you are new to the moors. Most the weekend warriors will disappear when HD comes out. Like they did when RoR released, and RoI, and SoM before that...until they feel sufficiently brave enough to venture here again. You may find a handful of us still here, because that is what we log in for these days. Such as it is.

speaking of switching side, anybody remember all those store bought reavers and spiders when RoR launches ????
P.S. Disciplinary School for Girls is the best kin no argument here.
I'm sad that I always miss some of the deleted posts. It can make it so hard to follow the flow of the conversation.
I was wondering where you had gone, Hinellas.
I started PvMP as soon as I hit the level cap at 65. I was on my guard, my first toon, but I was a no one. I was no threat because I had no idea how to play OP and so stayed tank. I watched my friends and kinnies get killed and it was only after every single freep was dead did the creeps bother with me. I got to rank 5 just following the freep raids around, but none of them really explained the moors to me. So I quit. Then I just recently came back to PvMP on my lore-master and who was there to help the squishy and stupid lm? Hinellas.
Anyways, point is, I'll miss feeling safe with you leading us Hinellas, but I swear I'll give ya a good fight! ;D
R6 BA and Ill happily play with you Hin. I played with you quite a bit on my Hunter before my ViP ran out so if you want company, count me in.
