Enough with the "Zerg" Argument...

Recommended Posts

First off.. not attacking anyone, I'm just giving some thoughts ok?

So the Term "Zerg"  has been thrown around a lot recently and the thing is.. i'm not sure why?
The definition behind the word "Zerg"  or "Zerging" typically looks like this:

Quote

"Zerg is a slang term for a group of low-level gamers who depend on overwhelming numbers to achieve victory, rather than relying on technique or strategy."

However this isn't actually what "Zerging" even is..

An actual "Zerg"  is more along the line's of:

Quote


"Real zergs are groups that start out small and realize they cannot win. So they call in overwhelming Numbers to assist them And Bombay targets down until there is nothing left. This is what a zerg really is. Sore losing that goes bad. "

Quoted from this brilliant article here: https://us.battle.net/forums/en/wow/topic/9309301610

A Zerg isn't a bunch of "UNDERSKILLED" players who "depend on large numbers" and even saying this is an insult to ourselves and our factions. You're telling me that the entirety of the PVP RG and FK player base is nothing but under skilled players? and that each side can only win with larger numbers than the other? 
I have seen players on both sides prove that this most certainly is not true. We have strong players on both sides but they can only do so much and that is when they call for help.

For example: A group and I were in Amara attempting bosses and the opposite faction wanted to PVP... The problem? we were little in numbers compared to them and we were struggling. We struggled because the number's despite having skilled players in our group were too much above our own so we called for help to "EVEN" the numbers. THAT IS NOT A ZERG
However once we had gathered more to try and even the number's the enemy side called for more as well making the number's yet again uneven. Eventually the number's evened out again with our side having only slightly more but those being medic's sitting at base and some of our other players along side them so the number's on each side were still even in the battle. THIS IS STILL NOT A ZERG

For it to have been a proper Zerg the number's would of had to of been along the lines of.. 20 vs 40 (Sounds like a familiar number..) 
*COUGHCOUGHALKASAVA/NUCLEARBUNKERCOUGHCOUGH*
if the number's are near equal eg. 45 vs 40 then it is most defiantly not. If the number's are already equal I see no reason to call anymore player's to PVP with the exception of those who came to join without being requested. Calling more than what you actually need is leading to becoming a Zerg and if the number's on one side become too great then that is when it becomes one.

A Zerg has nothing to do with "Skill" or "Level".. it's when one side is losing and call's more than they need to attempt to win despite the play field being of equal numbers. If your saying a side is "Zerging because they can't win without it because they are unskilled and bad" then your are sorely mistaken... and quite frankly.. are just being a sore loser/winner.

Note: I know someone is going to bring up Lowbies and Undergeared players or not having a certain class on their team but these are thing's that can't always be helped in PVP however they can be over come with team work. Help your Lowbies, protect your Undergeared and do what you can with the classes that you do have and ALWAYS THANK YOUR MEDICS!

You guys are free to agree or disagree just keep the comment's clean yeah?

Don't protect the Lowbies, Feed them to other side first, that way the other side can waste powerful skills, Stuns, and disables on these lowbies first, not to mention if they underestimate the power of the lowbie the other side can also waste their own HP or use up any protective buffs for the more geared players to come in after and slaughter them.

As for Zerging, ya, that's pretty much all the game is. Undergeared/lowbies in high numbers or Geared/high level players in high numbers. Kinda what people do and think it's fun.

that word doesn't have any proper  meaning nowaday people would call 4vs5 a zerg 

That's hardly a zerg tho, the term is literally being tossed around by butthurt people who are sore winner/losers

You do the same to pawns in chest. They should accept their ass getting kicked. Though if really if they at least got enough ch-acc/acc they can still stall many of the OP players, but I have yet to meet a lowbie to fit that so they should stay the meat shield.

Still not really the mindset we should have, at least teach them to defend themselves better

If you don't care then why bring it up at all yeah? You guys wanted me gone and I left, go now and be happy while I enjoy my time with my FK family, peace <3

sure thats what you say to all factions that help you in every game
like when we helped you gear up your character and gave you a bunch of stuf but it was not enough for you
so you put a knife in the back of everyone that helped you out
not only in the guild but even outside the guild
only 1 person is left that gives you all because he likes you to mutch and you just play with his mind ;)

goodluck with mindfucking and yeah we dont miss you i just react as opinions but yeah now you do the same as always
if someone is telling the truth you run and you block because the truth is to hard to handle
goodluck in your lies to all those fk people they will know who you really are in short time ^^
