    Midnight Mayhem

    We're very much alive and doing really well :)

    We're also still open for newcomers, single players and small guild merges alike, retaining our laidback, PvX mentality.
    Within it, we're currently (re)developing our WvW and tPvP sides, and while being open for everyone we're especially looking for regular PvP players now.

    Are you a WvW regular focused mainly on the Eternal Battlegrounds? Is your small guild roaming through EB on a daily basis? Are you a tournament player - current or aspiring?
    Stay a while and listen :)

    As a guild, we're focused on EB. You'll find our members in the Borderlands, too, but most of them are roaming in EB all day long, including some of the most EB-experienced and skilled commanders (every GHian playing on EB surely knows Catinka).
    While we're not the best out there on the micro level, like actual field tactics (but we're working on that, too), we already have quite decent coverage, numbers-wise, and good macro management, with solid base and a lot of potential to build up on.

    On the sPvP side, we're still figuring out our core team; having one join us would speed it up and help the others out dramatically.

    But you're a zergish PvX guild, you will surely want me to join your zergs in EB all the time, and use your VoIP, and join all your events, even those boring PvE ones. Why should i even remotely consider joining you?
    - we will not press you to abandon your current focus - if you prefer to flip remote camps rather than roll with the commander's zerg, we fully respect and appreciate that;
    - we will not require you to get into one Mumble room with other guildies; we do not require VoIP usage at all, in fact, and if you are using some other VoIP with your friends or constant party, that's fine with us!;
    - you will not be required to join all guild events, either - just those you can and want;
    - no one will expect you to invite other guildies into your constant party, either, if you do not want it - no pressure to include anyone but your friends in your parties if you don't need nor want so.

    I've discussed the big vs small guilds issue, and partially presented how it's tackled in [MM], in a thread on the GH forums, if you're up for some more reading.

    Ok, sounds nice, but... if no one is required to group up and do stuff, and i can keep to playing with my current friends, using our current VoIP and doing our current stuff, why should we join you?

    We're a true PvX guild. 30+ WvW regulars, ~10 tournament players, strong PvE side, established and stable structure and organisation. We take the weight of guild management off you, so you can enjoy the game the way you like the most, and we bring you all the extra teams to join up if you ever feel like doing something else.
    Even if you're a WvW regular, or a tournament maniac, you might want to tackle the other PvP format from time to time. You might be interested in doing Arah explorables. You surely will love how easy it is to get guild commendations here.
    And if this is what would float your boat, you could always help us with the PvP organisation. Everyone has a say here, even newcomers, and we appreciate people with their own initiative, ideas and plans.

    Sounds decent, but then - what's in it for you? Seems like you already have everything up and running and don't need my guild to join you.

    Our current members would surely benefit from having you on board. Our PvP regulars - and you - would have more familiar faces to play their favourite format, to train and have fun with. It's all for mutual benefit.
    We also hope that unifing the EB players a little bit more would boost our server's performance on that map. Sure, there's the server Mumble and the /team chat, but actually playing in one guild introduces a whole new level of communication, cooperation and bonding - especially that, if you ever feel like it, you could set the course of our EB regulars from time to time, actually taking part in our planning and coordination.

    Wish you guys were playing on my server. We have no one to take care of EB most of the time!

    Get your friends, pack your things and hop onto Gunnar's Hold - the best server out there =)

    We have dedicated WvW players - see that lone silhouette at the inner gate of the red keep? That's Catinka, leading the assault against Abaddon's Mouth in EB.
    We have tournament die-hards - still learning and developing that side, but we're really getting there.
    We have a strong and active PvE backbone - done the last few t3 bounties with 8 minutes to spare!
    We are organised via our guild forums - with scheduled weekly events, and all the important links - all in one place.

    If you still have any questions, feel free to contact me in-game at drkn.3429 - i'll gladly answer all and any concerns :)

    Midnight Mayhem

    We're a true PvX guild, organised and seen in all formats of the game.
    We have the PvE side covered, being the ones who started liberating Balthazar's Temple on a weekly basis to provide the shards for our server, with many dungeon masters who got the title in only guild parties. We can show you to the dragons and you will surely have some guildies to run anything PvE with.

    Of course we're expanding on the guild missions. Got bounties, treks, rushes, unlocking challenges soon (just need merits). We have organised guild missions' runs at least once a week, and 'farm runs' four or more times a week, focused on letting our guildies get their personal rewards, all at various hours. Our guildies can even gather themselves and request guild missions started for them if there's enough interest - just like that.

    Upon that, we're now mainly focused on building up our PvP potential.

    That's from one random weekday (we still had thought we would fight Surmia next week, ended up against RoF), before our primetime - you can even see the hour.
    We have 20+ people in WvW almost all the time, except for late nights / early mornings, and quite often field more.

    That reset preparations:

    9+ full parties. We were green, and we decided to hit Dzagonur Borderlands, the blue map. Except for us, there were 5~10 so-called 'randoms', although very communicative and helpful all the time.

    So yeah, we're mainly recruiting PvP players now, with a solid base to build upon and a lot of potential to still turn into a proper force.
    That said, laidback and nice people have always been our top interest, and we're a fully PvX guild at heart.

    Midnight Mayhem

    Just a little update about our last achievements and future plans:

    As for WvW, we built up a strong and competent group; mainly thanks to our devoted commanders and our scheduled WvW events (usually 3-4 every week).

    -We are currently planning to create a core group that operates around 1-2 commanders, switching those commanders between different days.

    -In the coming months, our aim is to reach the level of other hardcore WvW guilds and start doing GvG actively. For now we are intensifying our training events and we'd like to recruit more players interested in our project.
    Of course casual WvWers are always more than welcome.


    As for PvE thanks to the little boost from Anet we are getting more and more known with the Costume Brawl event and we'll be organising more community events in the coming months.

    -As you might have read we stopped doing the Balthazar&Grenth weekly event; we felt like the interest was falling down and the culling+lag didn't help in regards to entertainment. We'll keep doing temple liberations but in non-scheduled events every once in a while; so be up to date with the GH forum!
    To replace those events we are currently running new ones.

    -We have unlocked all the guild missions and we do all of them at least twice a week.

    -We also run Dungeon night events and split Dungeon/WvW night events every week; as well as doing daily dungeon runs and daily WvW raids without schedule.

    -We feel like both hardcore and casual players would feel at home within our guild; so do not hesitate and visit our forum!

    Also, check our new Facebook page and our new Youtube layout:

    Midnight Mayhem

    Midnight Mayhem recruitment is still open!

    We have changed our guild site and are actively developing it to make it even better over time. Find us at http://www.midnight-mayhem.net

    Our WvW side has been steadily growing stronger and more active.
    Daily raids are growing at a steady pace. We keep our raids organised and disciplined but friendly and open at the same time. Being efficient and having fun is what it's all about, and we're exactly there ;)
    You can take a peek at our recent reset raid video at http://twitch.tv/midnightmayhem/b/487133339

    We're not only raiding in guild groups, but also organising open mic WvW runs and general WvW map commanding.
    [MM] is as inclusive and open for everyone around as possible; we value cooperation and communication with our server mates, so never hesitate to join our commanders :)
    The best example are our coffee raids, organised around noon, open for everyone to join us in WvW and help with the server's coverage. We do not intend to stop there!

    Midnight Mayhem is one of the guilds invited by ANet to test the new upcoming WvW map, Edge of the Mists, and we're doing our best to deliver on that front, too.
    Check out our EotM videos at http://youtube.com/watch?v=tRtMphAYCOw & http://twitch.tv/midnightmayhem/b/484722872 - the new map sure is a lot of fun!

    The guild's PvE side is stronger than ever.
    We've been playing a vital role in all Tequatl runs on Gunnar's Hold so far, and intend to continue doing so. It's great to see the whole server coming together also in PvE, not only WvW, and we're proud to be a part of that community!
    Funday Monday is a type of weekly event in Midnight Mayhem - we let our mildly mental nature take over and... unexpected things happen. Give our Funday Monday videos a look and see for yourself!

    Last but certainly not least, our tPvP side has improved and is being actively developed.
    While we do not represent a tryhard diehard approach, welcome everyone to team up and play together, we've already had quite some success in this format.

    We are open for single players as well as groups, be it teams of friends or small guilds considering joining an established, healthy guild with laidback approach and deadly efficiency.
    If you have any questions, feel more than welcome to poke me in-game at drkn.3429 :)

    To join us, head over to www.midnight-mayhem.net and follow the steps in our forums.
    See you in Tyria!

    Midnight Mayhem

    Good morning, ladies and gents.

    We recently celebrated Midnight Mayhem's second birthday. Yay! A lot of fun, rum, and quaggan was had.
    Pictures speak better than words - take a peek at some screenies from the event, click here and here for galleries :)
    One of our guildies was kind enough to record the whole thing, too :)

    We're one of those guilds which value continuity - having never transfered, changed name, or undergone any big alterations, we've been fighting for Gunnar's Hold.
    Our daily WvW raids are the hardcore side of the guild's WvW play. We're characterised by open attitude, valuing people's approach and always remembering that real life comes first; if you can't commit to raiding five times a week, that's fine, as long as you do your best when you're around.
    Some of our recent WvW raiding footage:

    Besides raiding, we're still active with our morning coffee raids, spontaneous pug commanding, both laid back and specialised roaming, as well as general WvW backup.

    Midnight Mayhem is an effective, yet really relaxed guild. You won't find super serious, demanding attitude among our ranks...
    ...as long as you will bow to our quaggan overlords.

    The MM PvP team has recently encountered a number of interesting opponents, such as this full necro party. We're getting more adjusted to the meta and better at general teamplay over time.

    Our PvE side is as strong as ever. Our commanders have stepped in as main tags for the server's Wurm attempts and we continue to be an asset during the weekly Tequatl kills.

    We're open for everyone who feels like joining a community, regardless of your previous experience, hours per week you can dedicate to gaming, or any details like that.
    If you'd like more info or would like to join [MM], visit our site -> http://www.midnight-mayhem.net
