Horde Ironforge Lockdown to Delay the Ten Hour War on Gandling
21.08.2020 um 08:46
Horde on the Gandling-EU server took over Ironforge yesterday, locking down the capital city to prevent Alliance players from turning in the material needed for the Ahn'Qiraj war effort. Ironically, the Ahn'Qiraj event is themed around both factions working together to open the gates and stop the Qiraji threat, but leads to more server-wide PvP than any other event in the history of Warcraft, and like some of the other
, this battle is in response to one guild trying to work against the rest of the server, with their opposition banding together to ensure it doesn't happen.
According to redditors
, an Alliance guild called <AIM> collected all of their faction's war effort materials, with the intent to open the gates on the 19th so that everyone could work on Scarab Lord mounts at the same pace, but then withheld linen turn-ins in order to start the Ten Hour War event at a time more convenient for themselves than others; this would place the Ten Hour War overnight at a time less players would be able to participate to farm rep, complete the Scarab Lord quest chain, or be able to raid as soon as the instances became available.
In response, Horde players banded together to invade Ironforge, taking over the capital city and keeping the turn-in NPC dead to prevent turn-ins. The mini-war lasted until around 7am PST this morning, with more than 400 Horde players successfully locking down the city for over 12 hours. Interestingly, many Alliance guilds avoided the battle, allowing the Horde to retain control of the city, as they too would have been inconvenienced by <AIM>'s plan. In the end, the Horde were successful, delaying Alliance turn-ins until the war could be started at a time more favorable for the rest of the server.
Aaaaand we've done it guys! We're looking forward to the AQ Opening on Tuesday 25th in the morning and AQ Raiding that evening!
HUGE thanks to all the Alliance and Horde guilds that made this possible, Gandling is OURS and OURS alone!
See you in Silithus!
Some of the fun can be seen on twitch from both the Alliance and Horde perspectives, as well as a dance party on youtube.
