Yesterday, my guild along with fellow guilds in our alliance took part in an IB ( instance battle ) in which we took on another enemy alliance. These instance battles do require resources to create, but also allow the attackers to downgrade the growth of the target enemy claim area. Despite us being outnumbered, we did manage to kill 41 of them while only losing 1 of our own ( friendly fire no less, lol ). This wasn't meant to be a lopsided victory as the defending alliance claimed on many social media fronts that they would prevail and such an attack on them would have a swift and deadly counter attack. This video shows the entirety of the battle in all it's glory.
