well, since Tarrant decided to create a GWOnline guild. I was just wondering who'd like to sign up on that. I for one would certainly like to.

Please voice your opinions

Perhaps there should be more of them?

Who's going to take this up? Any ideas for a name, a Guild Emblem? :)

Tarew

I like this idea :) sort of guarantees that you're in a guild with serious innovative and hopefully civilised ;) people.
And since I'm not in a guild yet anyway, I think I'll be signing up too.

Me too, I would be interested....

I was going to start up a guild called 'Legion of Wolves', but no wolfs head emblem in the selection. I can't draw for a toffee or I would enter the emblem contest with it.

I just love those cute little furry critters.... does anyone know if you can get 'Charm Animal' with Ranger as the secondary class? Otherwise I will just have to stick with being a Ranger.

Yes secondary Rangers can charm animals too, they can do everything a primary Ranger can except they don't have the expertise attribute

REI ONRYOU
18-01-2005, 21:51
I'm in.

That's 18 now. Almost 1/2 a guild interested. Yes, Tarrant is part of SoW, but if he decides a GWO guild is a feasible idea, he'll leave to run GWO.

I talked to him a few days ago and he wants to know what the response towards the guild is before making any definite ideas, so if you want a GWO guild and haven't said so yet, do so now.

Once again, I offer a website template to speed up the website process.

Ash: Draw it anyway. It's only a line drawing, and black and white. It's the design they're after. If they like it, they'll then make it properly.

Aire
18-01-2005, 22:04

Already do :( Pity I can't afford a Teamspeak server. Ah well, I just 'borrow' my friend's in a crisis.

Hmm, seems like there is a lot of interest. Woo, always nice :)

And you've gotta feel happy for any elementalist who's in the guild. Reduced prices for all!

Oh, lame, i wrote that! Momentary blip of madness, I assume you :)

18-01-2005, 22:08
Yes hopefully someone in the guild have connections and can arrange a TS server :) I've used TS servers that are open to everyone you can create your own channel with a password, but they are quite unpredictable :rolleyes: You never know when the server goes down. But last event I used one with some friends and it stayed up the whole time

Oh yea? I'm already offering free charms to any Guild Members as standard :P I may make no money in my business, but um....where's this going.....ah crud. I'm a fool!

So free charms to guild members. But don't abuse it.

I used his server last time with my friends and it was online 24/7.

Maybe I should put up a list of all the non-trainer/non-SoC skills which I would love to combo with? I won't PM it, since two (and maybe more) are offering… so…

Blood Renewal and Plague Sending (awesome for my Dark Aura character)
Glyph of Energy (my poor Hex Master needs energy, and incentive to use Deep Freeze.)

Dienekes

Sorry, don't have any of those :(

I'll definitely try to make it a point next BWE to keep checking the charms trader in case some friendly alpha pours in a bunch of uncommon skills.

The only non-trainer/non-SoC skill that I have presently is arcane echo, which makes me very happy :) And greater conflagation.. which is already promised to someone else in this guild to be. ^^

REI ONRYOU
19-01-2005, 10:37
There are now 22 interested. That doesn't necessarily mean we've joined, nor does it mean there will definitely be a Guild, however the interest is very good. I wouldn't be surprised if there was entry requirements to make sure that we're all going to be active for the Guild. No point having a Guild that was full of inactive members.

The sooner I get to LA the better. I think I have a Monk ring or something. If I do, I'll buy the rarest charm for that I can buy, then sell it/give it to Guild members. If it happens to be another type of ring, I'll sell it to Aire (if Ele) or someone else who'll put it to good Guild use.

Well, i'm a selfish git. But its still reduced prices. Trust me, thats nice when that 200gp charm comes down to 40/50 :)

If I remember correctly, that was me. However, I'm not sure about getting ahold of it permamently, because a) It costs money, but not me. I don't know whether they would mind and b) My friend would have to explain to his clanmates why the teamspeak server is lagging ;)

I'll inquire about a teamspeak server. They're normally very cheap though.

In the meantime, I can host a temporary server on my machine. Just shout if its a good idea

The whole idea about a Guild is to have fun and share/trade for a cheap price with your buddies which makes people even more happy about the guild and everyone can enjoy the game more :) If you want to succeed int pvp you need good skills and tactics, that's mainly what the charms for I belive

EDIT/
LOL I see what you mean now. You can make charms out of skills you have permanently learnt and give/trade those charms to someone else and they can permanently learn the same skill if they combine the charm with a skill ring that matches the profession of the charm

Thanks Excel, but wouldn't that just give you a skill that was mediocre unless you sacrificed a load of attribute points to bump it up, at the detriment to your primary and secondary skills. I can see the attraction of say a Ranger (surprise surprise) wanting to have the skill the res of players (more than the once allowed on the res signet) but I found that there were barely enough attribute points to go around without taking some away to add to another skill.

The point is you can't get every skill available in the game from skill trainers you have to gamble for the at the exotic skill trainer in Lion's Arch or you could just buy the skills from someone who has already gambled for the skill.

You can only permanently learn skills of either your primary or secondary profession. To use a skill from any other proffession you need to combine the skill charm with a supiriour necklace and you can use it for 24hours, and by doing that the skill becomes elite so you can only have one at a time.

How does it work with the rings then?

Sorry for the bad explanation, you have to get a skillring of the same profession as the charm then you combine both in your inventory both are destroyed and you permanently learn that skill.

Check out the gwonline NPC guides they are good and I bet you have other questions as well...

This isn't the right forum to continue this discussion, but this actually means you can learn ALL available skills- you are just limited to using one at a time and instead of your usual elite skill (if u use one).
This also means other professions than the monk can learn the resurrection skill, whirlwinding paladins and so on .. hmm .. interesting :)
Even more so if you take the "What Is the (re-allocation) Point?" discussion into account ..

REI ONRYOU
19-01-2005, 17:57
Actually, when you learn a skill of a profession that's not yours for 24hours, you have an attribute value of zero, so lots of skills don't work well at all. However, some like Resurrect don't require any points in an attribute so they're always good for selling. It's best to have skills that have no requirements or variables when you use a necklace.

Anyway, back on topic of members. We've probably almost hit 25 individuals interested (not in-game characters or friends who may be interested).

Yo REI, I almost always skip the three missions before LA and the mission before Denravi. Of course, I go back and do them (except that pre-Denravi mission…) but, I'm getting quite experienced at that run from Yak's Bend to North Kryta to Lion's Arch :).

I'd be very happy if you'd take me across there. I'd make it worth your time in a non-sexual act kind of way. A charm perhaps? Or a pick-up or something? Would you be able to take me to LA, then from Shiverpeak to the first mission in the mountains? That'll help me get started. Would also need a decent party to ensure survival. Thank you for the offer.

To LA in a pick-up through the mountains in a non-sexual kind of way? Impossible!

Btw, I've haven't done any of the snowy missions, so I'm willing to join if it's no big deal. (assuming there won't be other new missions in beta, or char reset)

I like the long way to LA and will often grab a few "green horns" who have not yet made the trip to take along with me. I'd love to escort anyone new to the journey just for fun. I am a 18th lvl W/M (yes common class) and can provide some nice insurance and know alot of cool places in the trip.

Anyone want to look me up I'm now known (since the wipe) as Daya Paladin.
The Shivepeak are is one of the most beatifull areas and my favorite hiking area! :)

Oh, and back to topic, What is the limit on a guild? Tarrant may need to pick and choose from us. :(

Since GWONLINE is the BEST forum, you will go beyond 50 easily. Just like the Crusaders are experiencing.

So - I will not be joining, although it will probably be the BEST guild in the game as far as community. It is said that generating a Guild Community is the MOST important thing about a Guild.

However, my Guild may do things together, but the emphasis is for the Lone Wolfs who happen to like the adventure of helping out others without necessarily knowing them ahead of time. There is some adventure in that aspect too.

For those who are more bent toward PvE, my guild will still be available to them as a choice and certainly given the high quality of GWONLINE participants, we will be on good terms with the GWONLINE Guild. It seems like GG it gonna mean more than Good Game or Good Gaming soon.

I've already promised my last friends pass away :(

But.. if you're willing to possibly get your hopes up for nothing, send me a pm. I had a friend who decided not to play at the last minute, and so didn't use the fileplanet key I got for him. I've heard rumors that they don't work anymore, even if they weren't used.. but it's worth a try, right? :)

I am definitely interested, but I have a brother and a good friend I am introducing to the game.....hopefully next BWE. So I would have to make sure it's cool with them, shouldn't be a problem.

Looks like we should have enough interest for two guilds here.....last count I saw was already around 40 and growing.

For right now, we are only planning to have this guild for the Feb BWE, maybe the rest of them. It isnt going to be a guild in the specific sense, more of a community group ;) We arent going to be strict on the people we let in or anything like that, as long as everyone has a good time. We do not yet know if we will make the guild for the retail version yet, as we havent really discussed anything past this BWE :P

Great Idea for the community now. But I'd have to say in the very long run I think it would have to be dissolved.

There is no doubt that this community is going to grow very large when the game is released. Having hundreds of members frequenting the forums, and only 50 being in the guild might throw a little kink into the community. All the new faces surely would feel as if they were joining some elitist community, of which they will never truely be a part of. We may know thats not truely the case, but it could look that way.

If it is done, you will have to end up having some system to allow everyone in the community that wishes to join the ability to be in the guild. That would be tough to accomplish. Maybe a cycle system. In any case, best of luck to the GWonline guild!

The GWONLINE guild could be like a initiation to people on guild gameplay, duties, fun....

It could be a starter's guild and people would after a while move to build different guilds

Excel
23-01-2005, 11:31
Or the people that are part of this guild in the february beta could continue to play together if they like and form a different guild or simply continue if the GWO staff leaves for SoW again but that of course depends on the name they choose for the guild in the first place

REI ONRYOU
23-01-2005, 15:03
I had an idea similar to Excel's. If it all goes smoothly and well in the Feb BWE, then (with permission of the GWO staff), would we be allowed to continue the Guild(s) under the name of GWO?

An idea that Aire and I are talking about at the moment is to have 2 'chapters' almost. A PvP and a PvE, where the PvE consists of those that didn't want to do any PvPing.
As you can already see, the numbers are hitting 50, so 2 Guilds would be necessary. Doing this, lets those who don't wish to compete but play as a community do so, and the PvP can compete or PvE without any problems. It would still be easy to organise PVEing between the two guilds, so that shouldn't be a problem, and there would hopefully be a good trading community as well. I'm not sure how things would be dealt if more than 100 wanted to join, but this does work for the moment, and would leave room for expansion.

Running the Guilds could be led by a group of 5 for each (1 Leader, and 4 Officers) who would work together to keep it running smoothly, and help out the others. They'd have to report directly to GWO staff and do as they're told, and they'd have to be chosen by GWO staff as well. This gives GWO full control still, and if it all fails, then they can disband the Guilds.

On the website there could be new sections where the PvE could tell stories of their adventures, and the PvP could place battle reports from winning Tombs and the events of their GvG games. *Edit*Imagine the match between SOW and GWOPvP *drools**End Edit*

What do people think?

Tarrant Rahl
24-01-2005, 20:22
So, an update on my initial thought ...

Obviously there's quite a bit of interest, so I would like to carry this forward and create a guild. Actually, due to the amount of response, it may even be necessary for us to create two guilds, as to my knowledge, the guild cap was not raised beyond 50. How exactly we'll work this I don't know yet, but we can work on that.

I guess a few questions we need to answer ...

1) What would we want the guild name to be? The guild tag?

2) Who do we feel should act as officers of the guilds to represent the guild, handle extra recruitment, etc.? Since this could potentially turn into a sensitive issue, anyone that doesn't feel comfortable posting can email me at tarrantrahl@gwonline.net and I will post "nominations" here. Once we have some names down Chantal, Fallen and I will select a handful.

3) How do we want to handle membership if we have over 50 members? Two guilds? Who gets into which, first come/first serve?


In addition my intention was for this to be for the BWE in specific, as I am a part of Spirits of War currently. If the idea of the guild goes well over the weekend and some or all of you would like to continue it into release, we can discuss the possibility of that and who would lead it after the event.

Icarus Tyler
24-01-2005, 20:54
1) How about "GWO"? I know, it's not very creative, but GWO sounds cool imo, and we can make the extended name out of it (like "goblin-warriors-online")(of course NOT "goblin-warriors-online", I just needed something that matched the letters :) )

3) I liked the idea of a primary guild, which has PVE and PVP, and a secondary guild, which has only PVE.
I would rather like to be in the PVE+PVP-guild.

Ash Fleetfoot
24-01-2005, 21:13
How about the 'GRAND WORLD ORDER' GWO ...... that sounds suspiciously sinister enough.

By the posts that have been coming in to the threads here are anything to go by, there looks as though there are people that prefer PvE and those that prefer PvP. I think we should create 2 guilds, one that is primarily PvE but can still do PvP, and one that is primarily PvP but can still do PvE if it wants. Therefore everybody gets the best of both worlds with the emphasis on the favourite method of play but the ability to choose (a good GW concept).

Therefore it would probably be a good idea for people to be able to choose which one they would like to join. If the levels go over the 50 on one or the other then maybe first come first served after that (or names out of a hat).

Aire
24-01-2005, 21:26
Well, after Tarrant's post, I think we should do both a PvP and a PvE guild

Obviously even if you're in the PvE guild, you can still do PvP, and vice-versa, but these are more of a focus.

However, We can't tell who's going for what, so everyone who's posted in here, woould they like to post what they'd rather do, PvP or PvE :)

I'm a PvP person myself, so if you join them, you'll be playing with me (hopefully)

/Aire :)

Palin Vallenwood
24-01-2005, 21:26
Yeah, the tag should definately be GWO, but what to make the name?
*brainstorming ON*
how about: Goofy Whacky Oreos.... Nope....
Giga Willie's Order.... Nope....
Guild Wars Online.... Wait, that's this place!
Great Warriors Ofascalon..... too long...

GEEZ!!!
*brainstorming OFF*
okey dokey, my brainstormer is broken. once I fix it, I'll come back with better ideas.
Also, I think 3 guilds would be good. Tarrant, Fallen, and Chantal could each head one, and it would make the guilds seem a little more intimate, instead of one seething mass of humanity now, wouldn't it? I'm not sure whether the PvP mostly/PvE mostly would work for those of us who like both equally, so a third guild would cater to those who like doing both! Okay, idea-comer-upper-with-thingy might not be broken.. phew, one less thing to take for the psychiatrist to fix! Okay, those are my ideas!

I'd rather do PvE, but I like a bit of people bashing on occasion (stress relief).

Icarus Tyler
24-01-2005, 21:32
I think it would be best if we first would have one guild, just to save some organisation. Then we could invite all persons (we are still under 50 people, aren't we?) to this one guild, and then decide to make a second. Otherwise we would have to ask all of the 50 people which guild they would join( and that is a big piece of organisation).

We could also just invite all applicants on Feb 4th to both guilds between they could chose. But then we would have to show the people which guild is PVP and which one is PVE, like:

Grand World Order - PVP
Goblin Warriors Online - PVE

Oh, that was easier than I fought :). never mind.

/EDIT
These are NOT the official guild names, just the first suggestions from page 12.

Palin Vallenwood
24-01-2005, 21:35
Also, I think that if and I say if we have more than one guild, I think that there should be at least one officer per profession, possibly two.
I hope if its okay with everybody, I will nominate someone.

I nominate Aire for the position of Elementalist officer.

Ash Fleetfoot
24-01-2005, 21:41
Grand World Order - PVP
Goblin Warriors Online - PVE

It should be the other way around:

Grand World Order (GWO) - PvE
Greataxe Wielding Orges (GwO) - PvP
Getoffthe Wall Others (gWo) - PVE/PvE

Weeeellllllll I can't make up that many names...... :D

Excel
24-01-2005, 22:01
What about the tag is there will be several guilds should both be GWO? Personally I too like the GWO tag.

Definetly sign me up for the pvp guild, looking forward to playing pvp.

EDIT/
Well I'm not sure but Grand World Order sounds a bit more as pvp to me like dominating every other team ;)

Jersey
24-01-2005, 22:12
So far I've only taken on the PvE, for two straight weekends, so if there's two guilds I will join the mostly PvE guild (wanna try the missions after Lions Arch... And a little PvP as well)

And regarding the name(s):
Great Warriors Of......... (do we need more??)

REI ONRYOU
24-01-2005, 22:27
1) Guild Wars Online PvP [GWOPvP] & Guild Wars Online PvE [GWOPvE]. Fairly simple (ok, really simple) and it's possible to get the tags mixed up. Are tags even allowed to be that long?
I don't think the names with Warrior are good, because that implies a more Warrior class biass. This is very hard to come up with something orignal, yet with GWO.

2) I wouldn't mind being asked to be an Officer, but I'd only take a position if the other members felt it was a good decision for the Guild leadership. Palin Vallenwood demonstrates this with Aire, as (s)he thinks it's a good choice and thus nominates him. I also like their idea about an Officer of each profession. That would allow members to know who to goto for advice, but 2 of each means there would be 12 Officers. That's a lot of people in charge and could lead to leadership issues.

3) I think PvP and PvE. Those who specifically want to be in PvE only have the choice, and if either fill up too quickly, there's always the chance of a second Guild of each perhaps?

Hmm. Great Warriors of Old could actually work. Or Guild Wars Odyssey. In fact, something with Oddysey in it. That would be nice. Gone With the Odyssey? Great Warriors on an Odyssey? Guerrilla Warriors on an Odyssey? Hmm, the warrior part does seem wrong. Warlocks? Wizards? Watchmen? Wolves? Werewolves? Wildmen? Woodcutters? http://www.rpgforums.net/images/smilies/bonk.gif

Bah. GWOnliners.

I wanna try out the questing system so I guess I'm in the PvE. But if I get an urge to PvP I would like to know who to contact in the PvP guild if no one in the PvE would be for it.

Tarrant Rahl
25-01-2005, 04:54
Hmm ...

The issue of having more than 50 interested, but less than 100 makes a rather sticky situation, but I'm not sure I like the idea of a PvE versus PvP guild. I really don't see a need to segregate players based on what they say their preferred type of gaming is, especially since that can change very quickly. I would much rather work out a different method of including everyone without making two exclusive guilds.

One system that comes to mind is one that a few guilds I've known use. Essentially, when someone wants to join, the person at the very bottom of the guild roster (also the person that has been logged off for the longest period of time) gets booted and the new person added. That way there's always a large number of players online. The main issue I have with this is the idea of "booting" someone just because they happen to be offline at the time, but the idea is they can simply be added when they come back online. The only serious catch I forsee would be if someone wants to join at a point in time where we actually have 50 active members online at that moment.

What are your thoughts on it?

Rithien
25-01-2005, 05:49
Since we have a little more than 50 interested, i think this idea would work better.. assuming there is no penalty for booting a member. if there are 50 active members online at the same time, the ones that logged on last can always get in touch with a guild officer. the guild officer would then help him/her arrange a party, look for someone via clan chat etc...

if the numbers do spiral beyond a manageable range then a second guild could be formed after that...

A rotaing roster like the Crusaders had? Would probably be the best. http://www.rpgforums.net/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif Would just have to make sure that if someone had a system crash he doesn't get booted immediately. He would have to be offline for atleast 10 min or something like that.

Of course in theory that would be a good idea bu when you can have 4 characters per account and I tend to try out different combinations and not stick to one profession the whole event. So I would more support the leadership as it self with people that are competend and focus less on having exatcly one officer per profession...

Yes a very good point I'd say at least 10minutes, I'd perfer 15m so be on the safe side, otherwise I like that idea for the event as the guild right now isn't much bigger than 50 people. The idea of the guild in the first place was to bring the people of this forum together and see how we function as a gaming community and having fun, not to go extreme and try to win the world or something with different pvp & pve guilds ;)

Hmm, as I see things shaping up, there is quite a bit of interest in the guild atm. Since I am mostly a casual PvE player, just looking for groups for missions and exploration, and some are bound to be more hardcore than I; I really wouldnt be offended if they took my place in the roster - assuming I was in anyway :).

I do play quite a lot and am serious when i do ( hate dying ) but for those that need to be in a guild more than I, I will gladly step aside for them. I am sure I will see many of you in the Feb beta and possibly play with some also. Enjoy the game and play well are the best things about this event. (other than meeting nice people on-line)

I am what many would call a hardcore player and I am still interested in being in a GWO guild, But if it comes to the point that we need volunteers to drop out I will be one of them. I knew there was going to be more interested in this guild than it could take if the cap is fifty so I've just been watching this thread grow. :) Don't take this as me stepping out now, just if it comes down to it.

I am already in a guild and dont intend to leave anytime soon, but maybe being allies would be possible. I'd have to talk to the powers to be.

Allies as in PvE'ing together, helping each other get the stuff they need for crafting, helping in missions and whatnot. I think allies are a great source for friends and just out right having fun playing together. :P

Ok, I've counted it all through, twice. Since Aire's last listing one person signed up and one would join if he/she had a key, so we are 46+1 people. I don't think there is need for 2 guilds, because we are still under 50, and that a rotation of guild members equals not the original sense of a guild.
Of course we could drop the people who are always inactive and replace them with new applicants, but it seems ridiculous to always drop the most inactive one just to make room for a new player.
Actually i think the whole throw-out-the-most-inactive-player-thing is not that good. Of course, if somebody is always offline and very annoying, then he/she should be dropped, but just throwing somebody out when a new person wants to join is bullcrap (sorry for the word).


/EDIT
Seems like I've mentioned my point twice. It's really hard to make a good post :)

Ash Fleetfoot
25-01-2005, 19:13
I think it unlikely that all 50 members would be on line all at the same time (except for special instances like start and finish) taking into account time zones and other commitments. So the idea of 'longest idle out' does have merit, but don't forget that it doesn't mean that once you are out that is it, as soon as you come back on line you would then replace the longest idle person. It is a fair way of having a Guild with more than 50 people in it (if we do actually need it!).

Personally I intend to spend as many hours as humanly possible between kickoff +1 and finish -1 (have to see the kids off to school Friday morning and Monday morning), but I probably will have to sleep at some point and therefore stand a chance of being kicked at that time, so, when I wake up I just join the Guild again, replacing someone else who has collapsed through exhaustion!!!!! :D

Icarus Tyler
25-01-2005, 19:27
How about not one rotating player, but 3 . So not the most inactive person would be kicked out (even if it just joined), but rather the 3rd-last-player who is unactive. So the people would have time to get on the "Higher ranks".
I see, this is a very difficult point :).

I don't think that will be an issue.... you would only be replaced if you were off line and off line for a set minimum time, so you couldn't be replaced if you were actually playing, no matter how long you had been on for.

If it comes down to it just boot me from the GWO guild. I could still help collect crafting materials and weapons for you guys from PvE even if I'm not a member of the GWO guild. To have friends in-game is all I really need anyway. :xcool:

Nah, no one gets left out unless they decline membership, we can find a way to fairly include everyone.

So the "rotating roster" idea has merit for some, while others don't like the idea, which is exactly what I expected. Are there other suggestions for how we could handle this? As I said, I'd really prefer not to segregate based upon PvE or PvP preference, but if I'm the only one against that, we can leave that open as an option.

Stop volunteering to give up your spot! The people that volunteer for something like that usualy most deserve what they are giving up!
Maybe if a whole team left together. People that play good together and noone is leaving anytime soon could all leave the guild and make place for newcomers, but keep playing together. And then be reinvited when there is room.http://www.rpgforums.net/images/smilies/ponder.gif And if one of the team was to remain in the guild he could tell the others of any news and stuff like that. Something like that maybe, but not individuals volunteering to leave alone and deserted!

Well, if we found groups of people who tended to play together all the time, I think it'd be nice to voluteer your spot because you'd still be in touch through the pals you're grouped with.

REI ONRYOU
25-01-2005, 22:29
One problem I could see in the rotating roster would be due to time zones. Certain people would be on at certain times, so they'd be booted while they're away, and if they come back, an Officer/Leader may not be there to invite them again. On top of this, it does take a lot of effort to keep adding people over and over again. I myself would probably only be able to play properly on weekends and friday nights, and maybe for 1/2 hour on weekdays, but that's about it, so I could be considered inactive a fair bit, but still contribute a lot to the guild.
Rather than PvP/E segregation, just having a second chapter no different to the first (if necesarry)?
Maybe some sort of entry requirements to make sure those that want to join, definitely want to be there.

I don't use 98% of the stuff I salvage for my armor so why not give it to someone who can use it and is looking for it. Besides I had in the last 5 mins of Jan. beta around 89 iron ingots, 69 hides, 24 pelts, 100 wood planks, 40 or so steel ingots, and some other stuff I can't remember, but you see what I'm saying. I can collect more then I need and I give it freely to those of you in the same guild as I. As for weapons I can't say as to how many I had that I didn't see a need to keep and salvaged them for the raw materials that I collected. I never sell crafting materials to the NPC vendors unless I need more money for the next armor suit I want to wear. :howdy:

40 steel ingots? You gotta take me to your hunting grounds! I got like three!http://www.rpgforums.net/images/smilies/worship.gif I also sell to traders only if I need money for the new armour. But since armour costs 150g a piece I tend to sell most of what I have.

One problem I could see in the rotating roster would be due to time zones.Yea that could be a problem We would need officers from differtent time zones for the BWE. But as Tarrant said this guild is only for the BWE (maybe more). We'll deal with the problem of weekday officers more if we keep it into release. Sure hope we do.http://www.rpgforums.net/images/smilies/uhhuh.gif

Hello everyone :)

I personally don't like the idea of two guilds. Part of it is that I have a feeling that I will do a lot more pve than I orginally intended.. because of all the new areas (2 more weeks?! x.x).. but I don't want to be restricted mainly to guild pve because I joined that chapter of the guild. The other, more important part is that.. well.. I'm just stubborn, and I like to cling to the idea of a happy, crowded, clumped together family (non stop happy chatter!).

So.. I like the rotating roster idea much better.. Since this is just a temporary guild for one BWE, why not also pick some officers on the basis of whether or not they'll try to play the entire weekend with a bare minimum of sleep (I know some of you sleep 6 hours that entire weekend!). Of course ^^ this idea hinges on the question of if there's a limit on the number of officers available to a guild.

And of course, there's still about three more weeks to the BWE now.. so.. if we get.. say.. 40 people in addition to the 40 something that we have now.. then I'm all for the two guild plan. ^^

Kazkie Yoko
26-01-2005, 04:54
I like the rotation idea. But of couse there is problems. You do have to time zone factor. All you have to do is just get someone to be a officer every or everyother time zone. But i think that there are going to be alot more ppl wanting in. I mean you got till the 18th now so... But whatever yall choose i am with it. Oh yea i know this will be only a temp.. guild for this beta,but are yall going to think about making it a main guild when the game comes out? Just wondering.

In that case now since the beta weekend moved to February the 18th I don't have any plans for that weekend and I will be online at least 90% of time the entire weekend I here by nominate myself to be an officer if it's ok.

Looks like the nominating/voting is already going on. To help some of the undecisive people I've counted the nominations/votes so far.

I nominate Aire, am a bit impressed by the listing-talent :).

Aire - 4 votes
Rei - 3 votes
Excel - 3 votes (including his/her vote for him/herself)
Rudraige - 1 vote
Tarrant - 1 vote
Chantal - 1 vote
Fallen - 1 vote

Guild name
It appears kinda hard to find a cool word for the letter O. We have plenty of nice words for G and W, like
grand
guild
great
glorious

warlords
world
warriors.
I took a look at my dictionary and found some words for O:
order ( I think Ash posted this already)
outcry
osprey
operator
opera
opportunist
oath
ocelot.
As I said, it's hard to find good ones. Tell me how you think about them.

1 or 2 guilds?
According to Aire's last listing there are 51 people who want to join, and 2 of them maybe not make it in time(no key, etc). So there is still no need for a second guild.

I think thats a list of people he has info on. As in char name, class, lvl playstyle... People who PM-ed him or sent E-mails. So since you're not on that list tell him more about yourself so he can have an easier time organizing. And since he is doing so much for this guild I think there is no question that he gets to be an officer.http://www.rpgforums.net/images/smilies/thumbsup.gif

I would like to be put on the join list.

I tried really hard to read all this thread,
but as you see its a big bite, and I did
not get through it; so if I repeat somthing,
sorry.

One concern I have is the GWO name,
when you are in the game with the general
population and tell someone it stands for
Guild Wars Online you are more than likely
to get a lot of "Duh, you thought that up
all by yourelf did you?". You will ither have
to just shrug it off, or go on about how its
a web site and all, see where im going?

With the large response I would go for two
seperate branches (black/blue or red/blue),
it would be way too much fun to have guild
matches with your friends.

GWUB- Guild Wars Unofficial Black
GWUB- Guild Wars Unofficial Blue

The tags would be the same.
The capes could be solid black (no graphic)
gold trim, and solid blue (no graphic) gold
trim. I just thought that would look nice, and
really stand out among all the busy designs.

...........................

Burbon DeCameron-
Had a W/Mo lvl20 (tank),
Have a Mo/W lvl11 (smiting),
may try E/Mo or Mo/E soon.

I may be able to find some space on a TS
server related to another game I play.

Time for another summary:

Officers
Here are the votes/nominations so far:

Aire - 6 votes
Rei - 3 votes
Excel - 3+1 votes (self-vote)
Icarus - 1 vote
Rudraige - 1 vote
Tarrant - 1 vote
Chantal - 1 vote
Fallen - 1 vote

Some people suggested that Tarrant, Chantal and Fallen should be officers because they are moderators of this forum. I don't really know if that qualifies them to be officers, since they don't show up too often in this thread. But I have no problems if they want to.
Some other people suggested that Aire should be officer (for the wonderful listing), and I totally agree. And by the way, Aire has the most votes so far.
And since Aire opened this thread, he/she deserves to officer in the guild (say Aire, who is the Leader? I can't find this fact in this thread).

Guild Name
There have been several names proposed, and I list them all (the serious ones):

Guild Wars Online
Guild Warriors Online
Grand World Order
Glorious World Operators

I left out GWUB because I think that a GWO-name will last. For my person, I would prefer "Guild Warriors Online". It's short, to the point, and if we finally decided on a name we can handle more improtant things.

Guild Emblem/Logo
I really don't want to argue about this point. Since this guild will only last for 60 hours, We shouldn't care much about the emblem ( and very few of us have seen the guild-creation-screen, so just few people know from what to chose).
I suggest this:
When the guild leader(who was it again?) creates the guild, he/she choses a more neutral logo on a cape (please no tabards, they cover most of the armor, capes just the backs).

Members
So far 51+2 people have signed up. I don't want to throw out people, but creating two guilds at this point also seems unattractive (imo).
The +2 means that there are 2 persons who may not make it to obtain a key.
And I don't think that all players who signed up will show up at the event, so one guild will last (imo).

Excel
31-01-2005, 14:44

We need to clear this out once and for all. The idea to start a Guild is Tarrant's from the very beginning and Aire implementing the idea by starting this thread, I support Aire as an Officer too.

There is no question about it, Tarrant for Guildmaster and a simple reason to have Chantal and Fallen as officers too is because of their great knowlege of GW through alpha. We need those experienced players as officers. I fully support them.

And may I point out being a moderator and sitemanager sure is an enourmous task keeping the GWO site up to date, I don't blame any of them for not participating more in this thread they are already putting more time than you could imagine down on the GWO site, much of which doesn't directly show such as keeping this forum clean.

Of the nominated names I like Grand World Order the most. And that GWO tag is great :)

Sorry for not thinking about that. I totally respect your work, moderators. I just thought that organizing a guild+organizing a website+keeping the forums clean would be too much work for some persons.

Rather Than Confuse people and use an obscure name, why not be proud of who we are and where we come from?

Why hide behind grand words? Will Our Deeds not be Grand Enough?

Why not just a humble name, so that anyone can find us,

So that everyone can know where we started and where we Began!

Are we not a Community, If you prick us do we not read the same threads?

Are we not the ones that Log on to GWOnline First thing every morning?

Who Are We if not the Community of ""GWOnline RPGForums""?

Are we not [GWO] through and through?

Do we not want others to find us?

Do We not want to Grow?

Do we not want those who we meet to know where to find us at our best?

Rudhraighe O'Hagan for public relations officer ........ :o lol

5 Officer's sounds good to me, and I agree with Jersey that the capes should try to be as neutral as possible and to match as much as possible.....unless everyone wants to add a vote for what color combination(s) they would like to see on it - we have to remember, right now this is a temp guild due to the fact that they will be most likely wiped upon release. I kow we can always crete it again, but that is going to be a little ways off yet (hopefully not too long though).

In the next BWE, those of us that can get a screenshot of the guild registrar should design a cape and then we can add them to the thread (maybe send them all to one person to get into one pic and number them) for some votes on a cape design.

I agree when this in any case will be a temporary guild the cape is not the most important thing :) Something neutral, maybe with a symbol for unity. The most important is for us to get together and have fun.

Good idea to take screenshots of the guild registrar.

So far 51+2 people have signed up. I don't want to throw out people, but creating two guilds at this point also seems unattractive (imo).
The +2 means that there are 2 persons who may not make it to obtain a key.

I think a deep dark red colour would be great and will, I think, go with most other colours, and something simple and neutral in the design.

Icarus Tyler
02-02-2005, 15:47
This time a short summary :)

I added Rei and Excel to the officer list, so there are 5. If for any reason more officers would be better, the next are Icarus (Hey, that's me! :) )and Rudraige, both with 2 votes.

I think Grand World Order should be settled, no other name will get more votes.

Don't worry about the Emblem, Tarrant will surely chose something neutral.

Members
The 51+2 is from the last list in this thread and the other poeple who signed up in this thread. But since Aire decided to let all applicants mail him/her their personal data, Aire could also let only the people who send the information join the guild ( and I doubt that all 53 people will send an e-mail/PM)

next BIG summary when the members-question has been answered

Well, I'm at a friends computer now, So I can't give any data. However, I've recieved over half of the applications - I also have some new applications, which have been emailed to me.

It would be useful to get this information - But again, officers etc. are up to Tarrant.

Also, anyone who has applied via me rather than the forum, could they post their names on here as well, because its easier for me to count.

Excel & I were discussing the choice of Emblems for the Guild Cape in the IRC channel *cough*plug*cough*, and we thought the best two choices were:

http://www.guildwars.com/images/JPG/emblems/blue_tribalA.jpghttp://www.guildwars.com/images/JPG/emblems/gold_dragon.jpg

I think both show strength and honour, and are very impressive. Either could work in almost any colour, but I think a brighter colour would be better as it'd stand out more.

Opinions? Suggestions? Flames?

Aire
02-02-2005, 18:53
Hmm, prefer the one on the right - But thats because I like dragons :)

Are those actual symbols - what do the admin's think?

/Aire :)

Excel
02-02-2005, 18:58
OK as I posted before I would like our Guild to point out Unity which I think is a great symbol of this forum we got a large group united to form a very promising Guild so that WE the members of this great Guild can come together and enjoy Guild Wars in the best way possible; with dear friends of this forum

This is why I put my vote on The Blue Tribal, where you see the Guild Master as the highest rhomb above everything else. Below the Guild Master is the officer triangle which still is very strongly connected to each other and the leader in an unbreakable bond.

Last but not least, the most important thing of all : All other members of the Guild supporting both the officer and leader structure both below and around them so that nothing can tear this Collective apart,
for without the members, the heart of the Guild, the officers and leaders would not stand a chance and everything would fall apart and chaos would rule.

I vote http://www.guildwars.com/images/JPG/emblems/blue_tribalA.jpg

The Dragon is good but it doesn't symbolize GWO in my opinion

I think black background, and a brighter colour that stands out for the extra and emblem. Something really cool. Oh, and if anyone mentioned on Icarus' latest 'Officer' post would like to see my website template, just add me to MSN.
