What a night, 7 straight hours of running in a warband and a half from the Echelon Alliance. Tholo/Astodrian was fantastic as the leader. All night long he communicated with other guilds in our fledgling coalition and orchestrated beautifully our moves up and down the maps.
We started off pushing destro back in Etaine and eventually locking down the zone. Then we pushed dragonwake where we met some great resistance and skirmished steadily for an hour. Then we moved to Kadrin Valley and worked to prevent a destro lock there as well.
We ultimately saw that Reikland was on the verge of being locked, after almost 2 hours of defending KV we had it balanced and decided to head for Reikland. This battle swayed back and forth for almost 3 and a half hours. It was fantastic, many people hit their next renown ranks, many came and went, some even came back and were surprised to see us still at it. We finally did it we locked down Reikland. Immediately we pressed into Praag and managed to get to 76% VP before we started losing steam. People were tired and started to fall out.
All in all it was a ton of fun, and quite an accomplishment. Not only did our Echelon alliance field a warband and a half all night, CoW had a minimum of 12 and a peak of 17 members in the warbands at one poiint tonight.
Thats right CoW almost filled an entire warband by ourselves. This was a great turnout guys, and very good playing, you tore them up, led the warbands and were valuable team members all night. You should all feel very good about tonight and our future as we have many more members climbing up the ranks soon to join us in T4.
On one final note, we also marked the full time return of one of our Officers Moonwyde (Jaryth) who despite his hesitation, did not miss a beat and performed admirably. Very glad to have you back bro.
Thanks again for the great turnout and support, I can't wait until next Friday for the next alliance RVR night. We will be knocking n the doors of the inevitable city soon enough.
