The word "zerg" tends to get used a lot lately, and some of the uses feel like they are straying into derogatory territory. There is a war going on in the game, and in war, bringing the most people to the battle that you can manage is not cheating.
I'm also surprised by this use, but I tend to blame it on me being an MMO-newbie. From my experience with StarCraft I always thought "zerging" involved sacrificing sound economic development to quickly push out as many cheap, uniform troops as possible to overwhelm the enemy by sheer numbers. When a group builds up a very strong economic base at the very front edge of technological development and is able to field a large group of diverse and very well equipped players not because they sacrificed something but because they are attracted to the group's play style, I don't see anything zerg-like here. There's no hive mind, no uniform low-level masses, just large-scale success :).
