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 :)
