[Croxus] Top Guilds, Node and Siegewars


1,211 posts in this topic

Greetings!

how is the PvP status on Croxus?

Who are the top guilds pvp wise?

How are the node and siegewars going? Are they heavily onesided or more of a healthy competition?

 

I´m on vacation since a week and for three more weeks...so it would be nice to read something about the war and pvp status on croxus.

Sanguine - Addicted - ShadowElite - Ember - Dishonoured are amongst the 5 strongest pvp guilds in my opinion.
Wealth as a life skill guild has a few lvl 2 nodes, and those are a lot of fun to fight for.
There's a bunch of other guilds like Fuman said who are pvp related but nothing to hardcore tbh, though the nodes still get fought over heavily.
But siege wise, i think Ember had a good fight against 2 other guilds and Addicted also once.
Sanguine seems to strong since everyone avoids them for the siege. xD Some stuff is uncontested usually.
Not sure about SE since I wasn't there to witness how it went, but they did get the Mediah territory at least!
So yeah, nothing like on the other servers I'd imagine. :/

Hope this helps a bit. ^_^

Lack of big guilds, what left is Addicted, Shadow Elitte, Sanguine, Ember, are top guilds, Dishonured is hardcore but they have only 23 members so cant acount for anything then just be mecenary for Ember. last saturday only ember +dishonured fought 2 small guilds. Addicted+leviathan+Broddicted where making sure thats addicted will get Calephon, most of leviathan ppl went to addicted/broddicted as it was their allay. Sanguine as always got territory cuz nobody wanted it, and Shadow Elite fought very weak White crows which were breaking down anyway. This saturday, Shadow elite liberated serendia from Sanguine, and broddicted Belenos from Ember. Addicted n Shadow Elitte owns Calephon and Mediah, Serendia and Belenos are liberated. 

Wealth did really well as guild with life skills players hope see u more, n most t2, t3 nodes were taken or fought for. but most guilds dont have enough numbers to gor for siges, their is not many aliances. Nobody avoids Sanguine is just they went for the worst teritory, partly cuz they knew no big guild will go for it and small are to weak for top geared guild.
Ember did reallly smart to hire dishonured for the conquest, but they not that strong and they dont have big numbers i think around 80 players prolly they didnt have more then 60 on wars.

We really, really lack activity on Croxus, unfortunally. The top guilds are ready, but since it's only a handfull everyone gets their terretory and sits on it. Since a server merge is a constant topic holding money is a good idea. ShadowElite (knowingly or not) did a fantastic job taking Serendia teretory away from Sanguine. I'm honestly impressed Ember lasted for the full three hours against Ginnunga and Broddicted. Unfortunally they didn't know S4 rules properly and lost their teretory therefore.

The lack of competition will probably be the death of the Croxus server. The top 4 guilds Being Add/Ember/Sanguine/SE never really fight each other. They're all content with just sitting on their territory for days, this past weekend was the first time any of the big guilds decided to fight each other and even then it wasnt a big ordeal, the big guilds bully any guilds that start to get big enough to be a challenger and most of the big guilds are allies in some ways. It's kinda dumb and will just drive people out of the server.

Pretty much this; though I haven't ever heard of Add / Ember and SE in my few months of playing this server, I know that Sanguine are just a bunch of pricks pking for no reason (killing people who afk walk and stuff).

Addicted does not have an Alliance with Ember, Sanguine or Shadow Elite for sure (we gank each other day in, day out). Shadow Elite and Sanguine are not allied either (as you saw this Saturday). The relation between Sanguine and Ember is unknown to my knowledge. Dishonored are paid swords. Ginnunga is not ready to be "a big guild" (as you saw Saturday). So explain to me, how are the big guilds having relationships with each other?

Addicted have broddicted and have been all time in aliance with leviathan or u can say leviathan was under addicted, to conter it sanguine and ember where offten alied but duno if it is something pernament. No of big guilds wants sit on their territory, but isnt easy to guesse where others will figh. What we need is more guilds and ppl for siges, we hope that smaller guilds will try to get toghter and take down some biger guilds. we have 200 + guilds so it is possible and recomended.Hope the developers will give more money for guild quests so those smaller guilds have money to do so, as after first 2 weeks many guilds where bancrupt.

HYDRA are so good they just need to get more members. i suppose thats why theyre so good tho theyre really strict with who they let in.  Add/Bro/Levi was an alliance until SE decided it needed to die and beat Leviathan into submission after Wiggles left(:( i likd leviathan even tho they were just a fanboy guild) Ember and Sanguine were allied at one point idk if they still are. SE war everything and anything so theyre the lone wolfs atm.

Hi update from 6/08 sieges. There was quiet lot of going today,


 Mediah - Shadow elite was fighting sanguine, it was long fight for most time sanguine nicely was pushing on castle, they had planed it well, they planted spy in SE so se couldn't make any planned atack. and they had ways to get inside castle and open gates. spy was providing some information to sanguine and sabotaging structures. in last hour spy was find and kicked and se took chance and atacked sanguine for takeing all structures but sanguine defended their comand post. the battle victory should go to sanguine as their comand and tactic was superior in that batlle.
Serendia- 3 guilds where there Maruders, Abyss, Dishonured, Short after fight started maruders contacted dishionured and hire them to help maruders get territory.
so now serendia is in hends ofd  maruders. gz

Belenos- not sure what happend there but i heard that was ginunga, brodicted adn addicted, so as addicted adn broddicted is one guild they took ginunga and belenos now belong to addicted to (brodicted)

Valencia, SE was fighting Addicted and Broddicted 45 vs 85+ , Day before SE asked addicted as they had good relationship, that se is going for valencia, and if they come help in case like some other guild aliance (ember, sanguine, dishonured)  is going there cuz se knew that it wont have numbers for today, but Addicted instead brought broddicted and stich up SE..

Mediah, Sanguine was fighting Maruders but MAruders teritory was atacked and maruders went to Serendia protect their castle and they won, Sanguine was left with Mediah .

Belenos was contested by Ginunga who was aparantly was alied wiht Broddicted and addicted to take over Belenos.

20/08 Saturday, most epic day in croxus so far.

Valencia. Shadow elite with Dishonoured (85) where attacking addicted(55) and broddicte(60)  85 vs 100+ pl even,  first 1,5h was big offence against addicted for, after 1,5h-2h addicted pulled out when they saw that they will lose their fort in valencia anyway, and calephon castle was strongly attacked by abbys and wealth, they could hold valencia fort only for 5 maybe 10 minutes more they were thinking that we wont take castle in 1h. after they pulled out SE started siege of the main castle, after 15 min first gate was down and we were attacking 2nd gate , i took  little bit more but after 20min it was down too, then we were on their fort, it was epic few, broddicted fort was in flames cuz our cannons were bombarding it was furious fight their as broddicted were holding us much as possible, but just 3min before sieges time finished we destroyed their fort. n Valencia belongs to SE.

Big thanks to Dishonoured they were amazing even if we didn't have proper communication, they exactly knew what to do. and even outnumbered they could hold their ground easily. as well thanks to the wealth and abby's if they didn't fight well in calephon and almost take addicted castle down, it would take more time to take addicted fort and we wouldn't kill broddicted castle in time.

Serendia - Maruders were attacked but someone else they won it easily in 45 min, if someone has more info pls update us.

Belenos was contested by 6 guilds, Ginuga was defending it and hydra was paid by ginunga to help them, they were fighting against, Khaos, Lazarus and Urna and one more don't know the name. Ginunda with hydra took them one by one and after 2 h they successfully defended it.

Mediah - duno if there was any fight.

Calephon. It was protected by Addicted and broddicted, dunno how many ppl they have but i guess was around 50 , it was contested by Wealth and Abbys, wealth's farmers and fishers took their hoes and rods and attacked castle it was epic, they almost won by cuz addicted were lossing in valencia they decided to protect calephon castle.

But, what exactly happened in calephon we need leader of that uprising, Saronic of wealth or someone from abbys to tell us.

Belenos was contested by 6 guilds, Ginuga was defending it and hydra was paid by ginunga to help them, they were fighting against, Khaos, Lazarus and Urna and one more don't know the name. Ginunda with hydra took them one by one and after 2 h they successfully defended it.

Thats not exactly true. As Hydras GM and a witness of what occured I can say what happened, atleast on our part.

2 minutes prior to war: 11 Hydra (Our entire attacking force) grouped in the safezone Delucci Farm which was about 15 seconds walk from Lazarus's base.

First 10 minutes: Hydra and Ginnunga both converged on Lazarus's base (West of Heidel pass), Every annex was dead within the first 10 minutes, Lazarus was attempting to hold us off whilst Khaos destroyed Ginnungas base, both sides did an initial rush. At the moment the last recovery centre fell HYDRA fell back and left the rest to Ginnunga.

10-20 minutes: Hydra got word through an ingame whisper Ginnungas base was at 60%, we moved to intercept and hold them off whilst Ginnunga finished off Lazarus's base and moved back to defend. Lazarus was destroyed. Ginnunga took up position inside their base and rebuilt whilst Hydra dealt with as many KHAOS as possible. Result: Ginnungas base was repaired a lot and annexes rebuilt.

20-35 minutes: Hydra fought Urna and Geeking who kept trying to push for our base with cannons and players, meanwhile Ginnunga took out KHAOS's base (Goblin cave) which fell at the 35 minute mark. By this point Hydra had pushed Geeking up to just outside their base.

35-55 minutes: Hydra went in from the north, Ginnunga went in from the south, coming directly from KHAOS's base (Where Khaos's base was, Hydra was northernmost, Geeking middle, Khaos south). Hydras main job there we'd decided was keeping Geeking bottled in, defending a Ginnunga cannon we'd found being operated as well as lightning strikes into the North side so the Haewcha's weren't focused solely on Ginnunga to the south. Ginnunga fell at 8:55CEST roughly.

55-75 minutes: Hydra whispered Ginnunga asking to allow us to have some fun with the last enemy for 20 minutes or so as they were now in a no win position. Ginnunga obliged and left us to it/watched from the sidelines. Hydra took down one of the Haewchas and many of the defence's in place. It after it was obvious we had them beat we called in Ginnunga to finish what was left to speed up the process.

75-90 minutes: Fun Ginnunga vs Hydra war (Last stand) where we held for about 10 minutes with the 10 players we had left as the others had gone to grind etc. Saw Ginnungas elephant George, thankfully he got unstuck from those rocks. We called a cease fire after our cannons ran out of ammo etc.

 

---------------

Overall it was a very fun fight, our 15 man group (5 man defence team) ended up with a K/D ratio of: 572/151 (Prior to fun war with Ginnunga).

For the record however: We did not join in with the offer of being paid, we were not hired. We showed up as a 4v1 conquest war in our eyes was distasteful, if a guild gets a region it should be because they're the strongest, not because of 3+ guild alliances beating on 1 opponent. Therefore we came free of charge with no prior deal in place. After we won we were offered a reward for our hard work, we took it. That's very different from being hired, We actually turned down a 150m offer to fight against Ginnunga in that conquest war that we rejected on Friday morning and we went in alongside Ginnunga as it seemed like the more enjoyable fight to be part of rather than a 5 guild (if Hydra had joined) alliance beating on 45-50 players.

Overall it was a very fun fight to be part of, especially because the past week has been pretty slow for us pvp wise and the node we got noone built on to fight us. We were starved of pvp action, this was the logical choice for fulfilling that thirst.

It was a good fight all round but thought i'd clarify, the region war was realistically over after the 35 minute mark when KHAOS conceded, the rest of the time was just us soloing a base with 15 players and then having a bit of a muck around with Ginnunga, think the war was over 1 hour 45 minutes after start at maximum. Definitely weren't hired though

Thanks Riip, as far as i know Ginunga has like 60active players on wars and Khaos, LAzarus, Geeking, cant bring toghter more then this, and Lazarus, Geeking are way lower geard then  ginunga, so teaming up is bascicly only choice that they can fight, and as hydra has players wiht way better geard then those two u could easly turn balance in ginunga favor. as the times u took them down showing it that u had way to much adventage over them.  but if all sieds had fun that wat we wanted in croxus. we want more guilds come to sieges team up with the weaker and try take down stronger guilds.

Laz was about 25-30, Khaos about the same, Geeking maybe 20, and about 18 Urna.

Ginnunga fielded roughly 45 from what i saw fighting alongside them+the war at the end for fun. Had we not rushed Lazarus's base hard at start and both sides gone for a initial base rush/takedown then it would have turned out quite differently I assure you.

Lazarus did a big recruitment push the last few days, gained about 8-9 members. Plus there was a lot of bragging about it being a 5-6 guild alliance. We had no idea what we were up against really. Had Lazarus actually been at their base at war start it would have been different also probably (they knew we all found them building their fort, not sure why they didn't go on defense if the plan was to try to hold till KHAOS could wipe Ginnungas base to 0%)

I m pretty sure if u didnt do a thing Ginunga would win it anyway just they would have much harder times, they would fight against time. i gusse they would finish them just like 30-10min before times is up. For Urna u need party of 5 good gear ppl cuz i know them when i was still  in casual guild, geeking is just little bit better, khaos have few good gear players same with lazarus, so i guesse that was reason someone offered u money to help them so actual they have chance against ginunga. anyaw i dont care as long as it wont discoureg  those guilds and they will be coming fighting in nodes n sieges cuz our pvp looks really bad, actualy this was like best saturday so far, and addicted was like planning to destroy all pvp on server to get all territoris and acumulate all that moneys and gett ready for eventual server merge (at least that what i heard were saying on their guild meeting from friend).

For the love of all that is holy.. It is Ginnunga. =) (Its from North Mythology, the empty space or Ginnunga gap between Muspelheim and Nifelheim)

Great fun indeed, we had 42 people in this siege according to group setup. Its the most we had so far! Our plans to defend the region only came together when the leader of Lazarus explained to me how 6 guilds were coming to destroy us. Had never spoken to him, I went to investigate and the challenge was accepted. But indeed, best Saturday so far.

Not sure we could have done it without Ginnunga, the amount of pressure on our base would have forced us to go so defensive, and maybe maybe turtle it out for a draw. But even that would be stretching it I guess. We dont know. This time, we stand victories and from our side very little ill will against any of the guilds participated.

Seeing how the server is right now, everyone is a little stale and you know on the brink. Awakening released delay and stuff, but this brought atleast me back into the game a bit, like this is why we play.

I dont think any guilds should be complete anti anything or anyone, the worst thing that could happen for us is that guilds falls and members quits. Dont BREAK guild. Hate them and war them. We are all just trying to survive.

Valencia. Shadow elite with Dishonoured (85) where attacking addicted(55) and broddicte(60)  85 vs 100+ pl even,

 but just 3min before sieges time finished we destroyed their fort. n Valencia belongs to SE.

Calephon. It was protected by Addicted and broddicted, dunno how many ppl they have but i guess was around 50 , it was contested by Wealth and Abbys, wealth's farmers and fishers took their hoes and rods and attacked castle it was epic, they almost won by cuz addicted were lossing in valencia they decided to protect calephon castle.

But, what exactly happened in calephon we need leader of that uprising, Saronic of wealth or someone from abbys to tell us.

Few things:

85vs100+ and leave the fact that those 100+ were split between 2 diffrent sides of the map (by your own estimate those 100+ had 50 in Calpheon...)

The last fort died around 30sec before end of war, meaning SE did not have a 3min "buffer" on time as your post implies, but only 30sec.

It was a good fight, and we (Broddicted) accept that SE+Dishonored performed better in that siege, only shame is we didnt hold 1 extra min :(

You got most of the info correct, minor a few things.

The spy you planted in KHAOS removed several key building in our base during the fight, just before he was found and removed from the guild. He admitted he did it for HYDRA, and he did it at the perfect timing, disabling our cannon team, and stopping us from finishing Ginnunga's main tower, but as we said, good job in the end, all is fair in love and war. Things like that make everything more interesting. :)

After the whole situation with the spy, and Lazarus losing their base in under 20 minutes, KHAOS retreated from the war, leaving our base to be destroyed by Ginnunga. Our goal wasn't to get a draw or to drag out the fighting, we got hired to help Lazarus win Balenos.

Strangely, considering you weren't hired, you still received a payment from Ginnunga via a final war just after the conquest finished. 
;)

Regardless of everything, it was a fun war, and Croxus could use more of those in the future.
