I guess my only hope is that Anim and Anethia come back and put some effort into forming a decent imperial group. (Maybe A'nimus can also put an effort forward as he seems to be also excited about real competition).
Unfortunately, I find that extremely unlikely because my schedule is very demanding and so is Anim's. And as I'm sure you know I am extremely elitist ;p and I don't like queuing with people who can't carry me to victory. Originally, I was thinking of putting a group together with some people I could scavenge and then putting it together with Cesc and his people but that didn't really work out.
However I still will be around playing normal warzones and criticizing the state of pvp like I have been in this thread. Oh, and I will continue to bug Ordo on my republic toon so he will snuggle with me.
