Ah, another oldie but goodie came to mind. About 10 months ago, I was on my greenie WL at the time. I was designated drop puller. I did not know I had accidentally disabled my audio before I dropped group, and that will be vital to the story. I dropped group, popped my 45min CD rank brand, and drop pulled TR. I flew all the way up, passing two freeps on the way. I get to the CG room, and start to kite the room, waiting for my 7 creep posse to get there. They never came. Still unsure, I kited. I kited the CG and FMs for 4 minutes. I blew every CD I had. As I started to get low on health, and angry that they never followed, I decided to bail out the window. Right into the waiting arms of 20 freeps waiting for me. Turns out, had my audio been activated like I assumed it was, I would have heard the group leader tell me to abort the drop pull, they had tracked a huge freep force moving in. They were wiped fighting them, as I was the only healer in group.
sharing some Brandywine RvR footage. BW's heyday is long past, just wanted to show that good RvR can happen without ninja's or keep sitting going on from everyone. We have good fights here too don't get me wrong, BW's can just put out much more consistent numbers night after night. These are your basic rockem sockem type of fights.
Meregash (craid) vs UnitedStates(fraid)...Mere leads raids like a 767 pilot flies thru a thunderstorm, you know that you'll land safely no matter all the #### happening around you.
A few months ago, or so it seems, I was in a raid with 12 other freeps. We came upon a BA that was questing. We sat on our horses watching him for a several minutes, and he never noticed us. We finally circled him with our horses. He just stood there, probably waiting for the zerg. I could just imagine that his sphincter was at pucker factor 9. All 12 of us dismounted at the same time and began doing the hobbit dance. The BA just stood in one spot, turning in circles...We then mounted up again and went on our way...
Stars...We don't need no stinking Stars!

I remember when I first went out to the moors on my mini....I was low-level...I waited for a warg to find me and then I just sat on the TA CG while he kept trying to kill me. I think I got to rank 4 before level 45. He was so upset that he couldn't kill a low level that he kept coming back...The name shall remain nameless but will always be dear to my heart.
I was outside a blue TR getting attacked by a handful of creeps. I remember some newb champ named Screamokid running up the hill going inside so I decided to toss him a heal. He paused and targeted me. I think he was confused as to what happened. He sends me a tell about 10 seconds later saying, "mmmmm pocket heals." I say "No! You can be my pocket damage though..." There was the start of a beautiful friendship between an elf and a hobbit.
The First 2v2 I ever had with Screamo, Raleo and Gravedancer which is the reason I started to love GvG fights. There is something so exciting about it that people can only understand if they have done it. What a rush! 2valls no matter what!
Also I remember meeting Cariance....what a true Captain! I remember him saying...."Zel, you're gonna be great out here. You heal, and you've got the makeup to handle what that means. All my bubbles belong to you. Even if you go down, know that every second you stayed alive meant another creep dead. If the healer zerg ever gets you down, just imagine the day when every fellowship gets a cappy and a mini and woe betide any creep raid that faces that."
