Part commentary on pvp atm, part personal interest.
Obviously 90% of the action since 12.1 has been grams/lugz shuffles. And while a lot of people will complain about it, it doesn't seem like anyone actually does anything about it. Freeps "backing off" of a Grams camp just sit by lugz back door and either play the door game if creeps have decent numbers, or wipe the floor with the creeps and drive them straight back to the 1-shotters. For their part, the vast majority of creeps seem content to do the same thing; hug the one-shots until numbers at grams mass enough for a zerg all the way to lugz, or just sit around tagging stuff and hoping the 1-shotters do their work for them. I see people advertising for craids or croups and 75% of the time when they've formed, they just continue doing exactly as has been described already.
To head off all the commentary on balance issues, yes I'm well aware that freeps have the upper hand, and particularly certain class/spec combos are near unbeatable without massive numbers. But things aren't so bad its not worth trying, particularly trying to shift where and how engagements happen (and because there are so many freeps[and creeps] who have no idea what they're doing), yet so much of creep and freep side seem content with these garbage camps.
So my question is, are there any/many active tribes or groups regularly putting out 4-6-12 person groups trying to get action throughout the map? I'm thinking of xferring my semi-store-bought mid-ranked reaver since E seems dead as a doornail; but I'd rather not waste the TP with a visible class that would be largely stuck with the craptastic pvp we've had lately. I'm not looking for a tribe invite, or an 'in' with a certain group, but if what I've seen from creepside since 12.1 is really all there is, I'll stick with ganking the fat kids at the rez.
