FA's weekday EU coverage, both in terms of guilds and players who play in that timezone is lackluster compared to JQ, YB and most of the servers in this game. Its like that when we have a link, its certainly the case now. linked T4 servers are greater in number than FA at that time. HoD certainly shat on our precious ppt then. (Of course we cleaned the floor with their blood the other 18 hours of the day.) We're only ahead sometimes, some days in this matchup during those hours because YB can't defend their own side keeps from JQ. Quite a lot of the early-week EU ticks FA scored 2nd place on a <100 tick. Potentially related, YB had a higher tick than FA through most NA skirmishes over the weekend and into the beginning of the week, FA managed to steal 2nd in some of those skirmishes through ppk.
There were times when I enjoyed this matchup. I'm personally more looking forward to HoD next week.
