Wow ok then :(


As for WBs United - we've not had numbers drop or increase. We've always been steady with numbers for about a year or so... around 20 people at reset, 40-50 during Euro times, and then like 5-15 people on the last wave of the day.

Warbands in general is just terrible now because Jagex has nerfed it so much to a point that it's not really worth the hassle to do. I always recommend people to do warbands as a way to train, but I always seem to get the same responses - warbands is too hard, or doesn't happen often enough, or doesn't seem worth it because of certain mechanics:
- You disconnect, you lose supplies
- You touch a camp and it dies on you/empties on you, it counts as touching 1 of 3 tents for that day
- Etc, etc...


It also doesn't help that certain FCs (which will not be named) like to leak and crash FCs to a point that owners/members of that FC give up and close down. It doesn't happen so much anymore, but around 1-2 years ago it was a big thing, and a lot of FCs closed down because of FCs doing dodgy things like leaking/crashing, simply because they couldn't find worlds on their own, or fight FCs matching their skills.

1. Holiday is (almost) over, people get more casual
2. More people max, a lot get more into PvM and stop dailyscape in general
3. People experience how toxic the community is
4. More people / leaders quit the game
5. People get tired of warbands due to the activity or how timelocked it is
And of course this ^

You do realise the last wave of the day is considered peak gmt wave as it's afternoon/night for Europeans and everybody is home, the wave before that would be considered more Australian/american as it's morning for Americans and night for Australians.

Well I guess the Europeans in WBs United just wake up early, because we definitely don't have that many Australians/Americans in the FC. :P

well tbh the only fcs i really see around and mentioned every single wave are CPK (team 9) and SAPK (team 49), so if solobands people need to scout or capehide or whatever, wear one of the two.

also fcs like requiem, sever squad, atomicpk, illuzion etc. probably didn't close due to leaking or anything like that, they were most likely closed because the fc leaders all lost interest and/or a big lack of people active in that fc anymore. most of them seemed to have moved to either cpk or sapk, or quit wbs entirely

Team 49's is pks not SAPK collection of 4 fcs hence why you see them around alot, you almost never see them around on GMT waves. PK fc still does waves a heap you just never see them because they don't have a set world they just all go diff worlds. 7's have scouts everywhere as soon as they see a pker they will get off world before the fc comes and OPK hosts almost every wave but we won't bother going a wave if we know there's not going to be a wave after because hardly anyone loots anymore. Cape hiding is pointless and puts a target on your back because as soon as i see the cape i check name and know they're not fc it's best to just join a fc.
