Phew, what an exciting week it's been, and not just because Innins and I got married!
The battle for Iokath took an unexpected turn quickly, as Darkstorm didn't actually end up being much of a threat, however we quickly found ourselves neck on neck with an apparently new guild called The Veritas Collective. From what we could tell, they seemed to be another mega-guild formed by simply spam-inviting anyone and everyone, similar to Exiles of Yavin, who were our main opponents on Corellia last month (incidentally, that guild has quickly dwindled to a mere shadow of its former self after we defeated them during Total Galactic War). Similar to then, we were up against a considerable and consistent stream of points generated by more than 50 guild members being online at most times of day, but since we were very dedicated to winning and they were not, we eventually emerged victorious!
As you can see in the Conquest Point Tracking Thread, we didn't hit our highest score ever, however with an average of more than 70k points per member we hit our highest ever contribution per person. Special credit goes to the officers here, who tirelessly put together Soa VM runs day after day to make the most out of the Operations Conquest guild perk, but also to everyone who kept showing up for these runs! Sometimes a single 16-man wasn't enough to contain everyone and we had to do another run simultaneously.
As usual, don't forget to log in over the next couple of days to claim your new "Conqueror of Iokath" legacy title (if you hit your personal target on at least one character) and feel free to relax this week, as we're simply going for the large yield on Belsavis.
