A group of very skilled players can easily kill a group double thier size if they are good. Just because you have more numbers does not always mean you will win the fight.

That's why in WAR Ruin basically ground Dark Crag into the dirt. Not because of skill, honestly they were terrible, but you don't really need individual skill if you can herd the zerg into the right direction to trample your opponents. Once the Praag merger fell into place Ruin was getting routed regularly because there was actual competition at that point.

It's also why population ratios actually mean something. With Huttball you can easily que up against your own faction so there's always Warfronts to do so all that will ultimately end up mattering is World PvP where numbers mean everything.
EvE allows a group of good players to trounce larger groups in a variety of situations. I've personally won devastating victories while heavily outnumbered.

Space Blasters on rolling on Hedarr Soongh, Republic... and there will be competitive PvP on that server.

Good day.
The problem with that theory is that those big guilds come and go but the population tends to always stay high. I can't count the number of games that everyone rushes to play, then 2 months down the line you start to see massive population drops (for whatever various reasons) it's really only those big servers that are still enjoyable after any length of time.

Deal with the short term issues to have long term enjoyment.

You and your guild were and are nothing but people with way too much time on their hands to pump into grinding Warzones against level 10's in the beta - truly pathetic that you put equate time invested to skill so heavily. That I can dominate so hard against your group when I had 0 PvP gear and apparently "never pvped" is telling. But you can pretend you were "The Best" on the forums!
What's that the one match you ever won? I would have saved that SS too. It just proves that you saved it as a trophy.

And btw it was a "pug", Acedia wasnt in our guild.

Faction, ppl didn't even know you existed in WZs. FYI.

You use WAR in your example. In WAR, there were plenty of small guilds dedicated to zerg busting. You could quite realistically take on groups 4 or 5 times your owns size in that game.

Kind of a bad one to use as an example. SW:TOR is designed fundamentally differently of course, but it has been proven time and time again that unorganized zergs of idiots can and will fall to much smaller groups.

And btw it wasn't a "pug", I'm friends with Microwave and he was running a 50's premade in that wz, you just got lucky that you were in their queue.

Lol.... You should stop posting before you embarass yourself more.

Microwaves on your team in that SS. I screenshotted it because you lost to a pug and I killed your entire team by myself.

LOL! At least you've got the counter argument of "Well, you didn't grind Warzones in beta like I did!! I played a lot guys!! CHECKMATE"

Have fun in obscurity on Anchorhead, Nyghoma!

Acedia was also on your team in that screenshot, however, judging by the fact he did 0 damage and healing, he left the game before it even started and got replaced.

Any other misdirection?
