because good is dumb. - Spaceballs
I didn't want to have to ever use this quote, but alas, that time has come. As you know, The Witching Night (Nights?) is/are here. So I decided (over playing Fallout 3) to venture into Black Fire Pass for some RvR action. There was action, sorta.
What I found was Destruction pinned inside their warcamp, and a plethora of Order fighting them. It seemed pretty clear Order had the superior numbers. However, they also lacked any sort of sense and patience. Instead of letting Destruction actually come out of the base, they attacked them on the fringes.
Guess what is on the fringes, artillery and Hero mobs. So even with the greater numbers, the Witching Night Public Quest was being won by Destruction. Many people hung back and tried to tell the rest to get back. They did not listen, as the thirst for renown and xp was just too much.
Destruction ended up winning the Public Quest, not that they could do stage two... as there was too much Order. Still I am saddened by this defeat. I should have played Fallout 3 last night.
