ValuesUnrefined was formed in 2001 by a group of friends who had been playing MMOs since 1999 with the release of Everquest and was originally a competitive Counter Strike clan. While playing Counter Strike the members continued to play MMOs including Dark Age of Camelot when it released that same year and Shadowbane two years later in 2003.
Teamwork, Communication, Skill, Courtesy
In 2004 we moved to World of Warcraft and joined in with an existing guild. After completing all there was to see in terms of raiding we decided to move to Guild Wars and quickly climbed the US ladder by creating the original minion master self-sacrifice build.
With the release of the Burning Crusade expansion and 10 man raiding we decided to return to WoW as our own guild. We migrated to Warhammer Online when it release with hopes of some awesome RvR action. We were the first guild formed and co-founded the top alliance on our server, but as the game died due to server population imbalances and bugs so did the alliance and eventually we moved back to WoW. Through WotLK and Cataclysm we moved through 10 man raid content as fast as it was released while still staying competitive in arenas (the guild has had multiple WoW Gladiators as well as Duelists and Rivals).
After devoting a lot of time playing together in the multitude of games we've played we have formed a very close knit group that knows how to work together effectively. Most members have experience with RvR in DAoC and city sieging in Shadowbane and we all understand how crucial teamwork is in those environments. We're very much looking forward to bringing a high level of skill, teamwork, dedication and communication to the WvW content in GW2.
FocusWe have a lot of roots in PvP as well as PvE content but for GW2 we are going to have a heavier focus on PvP. We plan to be competitive in sPvP play and have a strong presence in WvW as well. PvE content in the game is very enjoyable and I'm sure we'll be going through it and participating in events, but it's not the main focus.
RecruitmentRecruitment is currently open as we would like to grow our WvW team and find some people to fill in some gaps for sPvP compositions. If you are interested in joining you can contact me (Neophyte) directly through the forums on our website or email us at unrefinedguild [at] gmail [dot] com. Unlike some other guilds we don't use a formal application process, we would prefer to know what you think is relevant, but for example things like: What kind of experience do you have? What are some of your greatest game-related achievements? Do you have qualities or skills in your real life that transfer into the game to make you a positive and successful leader? What do you like to do when you're not playing games? That kind of information is of great interest, we are a close group of friends who have been gaming together for years and want people who will mesh well with our group first and foremost.
