The Spring Quarterly Update has landed.

Overview here:
https://www.guildwar...arterly-update/

(Very) Detailed Patch Notes here:
https://forum-en.gui...s-April-19-2016

I'll add some highlights when I have time, but I think the biggest news is what they're calling "World Linking (Beta)."  Basically, for the purposes of fighting in WvW, we're getting merged with another server.  Oh, and they're resetting glicko, so it might be a bit of a clusterfuck for a while.  They haven't announced servers yet.

Not gonna lie. This is giving a slight bit of anxiety. However it cannot hurt my current participation in wvw, because I haven't participated in quite a while. So, be what may come, I suppose.

Toothpick id prefer server alliance swap each week for 2 vs 2 be more interesting then just merging and population might die out more in the long run...

WvW—WORLD LINKING (Beta)
In order to achieve more balanced team sizes in World vs. World, most worlds will be linked in WvW with one other world, creating a combined world with a boosted population. Beginning at reset this Friday, this process won’t modify the original worlds or transfer any players. It simply unifies them together to play in WvW. Worlds that have been paired up will display with a plus sign to the right of the world’s name in the WvW panel. Players will also be able to roll the mouse over a world name to see which additional worlds are currently a part of that team.
Since we’re significantly shaking up existing team membership, we’ll be resetting matchmaking data. This means there’ll likely be a lot more variation in matchups for the next several weeks. It’s also worth noting that the new world groupings aren’t necessarily permanent. We have the option to link different worlds together as populations shift over time.
We’re releasing world linking as a beta feature and asking the WvW community to test it on the live servers.

Will we still be "Ehmry Bay Invader"? Looks like it's time for me to dust off my WvW gear. The Triumphant armor sets look mostly meh. I suppose the Medium is nice for people who are sick of trench coats, and the light is okay. I'm sick of boob-armor, though, especially after reading about how it could actually kill you.
