Hmmm.... Go to guild hall... check
Get 8 players.... check...
Have an officer / leader of guild in your party... check..
Click the button that says "guild battles", where "enter mission" would be...check..
Click "unrated guild battle"...check..
Type name of enemy guild... check...
Own enemy guild so bad that they wish they didnt come from their frying pan to your oven.... pending results..

the quick answer that you don't want to hear is "no".

the lengthy answer is to check my thread in the PvP section about unranked gvg. Basically you have to advertise for interest, or just post your details on that thread.

MkillerH.

Thats the point- you have to MEET a guild willing to do an unranked GvG with you first- and that is NOT something that is automatic or easy to do in the slightest. I personally would not mind if all the guild leaders and officers names were included on the leaderboard, at least that way, guilds can challenge anyone in the top 1,000 easily enough.

The problem is that we need to communicate with "enemy" guilds BEFORE issuing the challenge, its not something that is very easy to do at the moment if you don't use forums or want to leave the game to be able to do it...

edit- theres a button for "automatic ranked match" why the heck isn't there one for "automatic unranked match" it would make the game a lot more fun.

Heh, my post was just for fun, but all that i typed implies if you find a guild.

And if you notice the title, hes asking how to start a match :)

What I would like to know is why can't we do an unranked guild battle to ourselves? May sound stupid but I would love to actually have a practice to fully test out some of the things that regular PVP games can't.

Then, you move some players to the other guild and GvG each other for practice.

I was wondering that as well this would be so much better to introduce new guild members to guild battles. It would also be great for new guilds to get their feet wet with GvG.

Cleaned quote a bit up.

Honestly, GvG isn't that hard if you have the prerequisite 8 player team. Sure, you'll bump into a top 50 team from time to time and they'll clean the floor with you if you're not prepared, but it's an opportunity to learn from their build. The bulk of the time you'll be playing against players of similar skill or random guilds who took henchmen into the arena - an easy win for an 8 person team, even if you don't have voice communication.

If you're not playing rated GvG because you're afraid you'll loose, you'll never give yourself the opportunity to win. You'll get totally annihilated a lot less often than you think, especailly toward the bottom of the ladder. Just shrug it off and keep playing, you'll make more progress that way.
