last night in T2 around umm 7-11pm Destro tried our best to take the Mandreds Keep. we out numbered order slightly we had almost 2 warband full so around 44 people. I think at most Order had around 32 ish.
so we took the 4 little points first while still having enough people to keep pressure on the keep. after the points were taken we had our entire force bringing down the walls.
this entire process took around 4 hours or so due to the back and forth battles and losing a few points and recapping.
We finally broke inside fighting order and staying on the bottom floor till we got a decent enough break from the waves of order. we sent 4 tanks up to the second floor with a healer on each one so they didnt get insta gibbed.
the battle with the NPC wasnt really going well the hero keep lord hit hard really hard even the tank had trouble standing. and this was with only about 3-4 order players messing with us.
then we got hit...about 20 order players ran through our healers our tanks fell and the hero mob destroyed our entire group in seconds.
So after 4-5 hours of fighting we lost because of a NPC....the warband tired and exhasuted logged or did other things..
I kept playing till about 2am checking in on the keep, when i looked in my open group tab and saw a warband starting....about 30 of us went to the keep and took it over, and it *STILL* took a ton of work with the NPC's and the trinkle of Order players trying to wipe us. they managed to wipe us twice by disrupting our healers while the keep lord destroyed us.
we finally won after a about 1 hour.
My point it must be near impossible to take a keep if the battle is for example 50v50 with the power of these NPCs....if you dont bring just flat out more numbers these keeps cant be taken during prime time. In fact i dont think ive ever seen a keep change hands during prime time on my server.
It doesnt feel epic when we take a keep with 30 destro and only 6 order defense while playing at 3am on a monday..
please someone shed some light
