AFAIK, last SE-sanctioned ballista championship was the last big publicity ballista got anywhere, aside from the mass relocation to fenrir(i think). Seraph Server's finalist team had 1 or 2 members transfer to fenrir, as well a few members from the runner-up team; I know of two; Hercules and Pabe. I know they moved, but AFAIK they have both moved back to Seraph. If not, Pabe isn't on the ballista server anymore, either.
You're best off just joining a server where you have the most friends now. :3 Aside from Herc and brightblade(I think he was on the team), no one else from the seraph championship team still plays. Hizumi still has his character but rarely logs in and is probably out of practice on Sam. <.<b
Kinda makes me reminisce about the old Sleepsheep legend. xD Back in 2004 when I first started and Hizumi introduced me to ballista, he told me of the legendary Sleepsheep on our server. o.o The elvaan samurai that once soloed 3 people and lived to tell the tale(uncapped match) I got to play with him a few times and I never got to see him play on his SAM, but he definitely had a great grasp on the ballista concept. Pretty sure Sleep doesn't play anymore. D;

If you need a bard to get "good exp" in a merit party, you're the weakest link.
