Well with all this server drama going on, people really trying to sell "there" servers, Ollo, Aranzeb, and Kyrios, not to mention the fresh start server, there is talk that a lot of people / west are re rolling. I'm hopeful enough stay, and people transfer and bring the spark back to the west.

I understand that we have some people that don't like to PVP, i dont like to at times aswell. I remember the fun days though when we had random events all the time. Even if it was silly, we still played together, went out on the sea, just did stuff as a guild. Lately i haven't been feeling that at all. I think we have all gotten into a routine with all the choirs and no fun time anymore. (myself included)

With this new patch that is days away, im hoping we can start working towards doing more things together. I also want to start throwing legitimate attempts at serp again (and actually starting) to get gear out of there and the rings for you guys. I also would like to see more fun stuff together. I have been AFK for the last few days thinking of what i wanted to do.

I was leaning heavily towards transfering, that is why i have been hitting EU so hard, and also stock piling those flasks, labor pots, and apex. I have decided that i am not going to do that, I might roll on morph, to see and maybe make a quick buck, but i am not going to level another toon over there. I am in it for the long hall, and if it doesnt pan out, i will proabaly just bow out of the game and hopefully move on to something else.

That being said I am going to start getting back into coordinating with everyone, new perople, old people, and hopefully some bew people from merger's and guild left overs. I think with the application thing that is getting implemented, i think that will help get the exact people that we require (the hard rule set we carry)

I CANNOT do this alone, (also im not saying noone is trying or im the only one that is, because im not) I have fallen into the same routine now for too long, and i gotta change it up of the burnout is coming.

LETS RISE FROM the ashes, 2.0 lets get it, lets start doing thins together again <3 shit even having house parties, little pack hunts, (ill hide em around) races, ill give away prizes, lets start running instances again. Im not asking for us to completely change. I do want more though, and i think we all do as well. Let's bring the fun back into the game. Now if im completely off base, please tell me, i will bow down to it, and step aside.

lastly, i would love feedback, please comment, even post a single character, let me know where u stand either way, or just that you read this, also please direct people to this thread.

TLDR: PLEASE JUST read it, and if you want your time back after reading it, ill send you 50 gold.

thank you,
Dynasty

This is the initiative and attitude that I love seeing - and makes us who we are. I'm anticipating a lot of fun with 2.0, and we're just getting started. Looking forward to seeing everyone participate.

P.S. Thanks for the post Dynasty, appreciate you sharing your thoughts on the matter.

I think it's simply the long exhale before 2.0 drops. Nothing makes sense to do with all the unknowns. Happened before 1.7 as well.

I'm up for it, It's just this is a problematic game. If people are running packs, you have to wait. If you are waiting, you do something else. Then you become the bottleneck while people wait for you. Just so many chores to make the gold to hope to be competitive.

I absolutely want to run instances and a lot more, but the problem also falls into having the proper roles/specs available AND geared and it starts to creep on having requirements on people to fulfill those roles. Our guild isn't really structured to make sure we have the holy trinity available and fullly potted up and online at an expected time. Our roles are super dps oriented like 95% of all MMO guilds. But you are right, we should do Serp to get people their gear (and the new pieces of obsidian) since we are way outgeared for it.

Having played too many mmo's for too log, I'm really reluctant to _commit_ to being at a place & time for a game. That being said, I will be there anyway, because, well you know my times, which is pretty much always.

Lastly, you put TLDR at the top of the post...

well ill say first, tl :D R goes on the bottem, everyone skims before reading, when they get to the bottm then u see tldr, i see threads all over the place, everyone i see they put it at the bottom. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=tl%3Bdr

and im not saying ok every tuesday at 3pest-10pm raid all day every day. I would love to be able to run atleast an instance once a week, and whenever we can "schedule" for that week. what have mostly everything we need for runs now plently of heals, tanks, and dps. i also said *** my car and am going for a desert or earth set, and will also be grabbing the hellkissed weapon that will help most with tanking.

also there are lots of times, i hear everyone on ts, and literally see ppl just chillin in housing zones, my self included, those times we could do like scavanger hunts, or think up the first person to link x item get blank. or weekly "BEST Screenshot of the week, month" etc, caption it. maybe a luvky regrade scroll to the winner or a couple labor pots, etc, there is alot of fun stuff we can do just sitting around.

hell if we could structure tautic and effin toasts "poker" game , just many fun quick EASY things we can do, to spice things up

I love the idea of doing more things together. Maybe some guild events would be a good start. But getting people on TS is kind of important too.

I agree with everything you've said Dynasty i got sucked into chores as well which was my main reason for wanting to go pirate. As i was getting ready though i just got really tired of crashing or freezing during pvp. Which is the main reason i have not been playing as much (think i have the crashes taken care of though....maybe).

As far as scheduling running instances, i think we should really just start a post or something where we throw out a couple of times set for the weekend and have people reply with the times they could do and go with majority (assuming we have enough of the classes we need). I've also been toying with putting together a 2nd set to help fill needs (whichever we need more, healers or tanks, always seems like a tossup). Also on the note of instances we also need to get an idea of where everyone is at with gear and their sets so we can help and organize for hasla rift (if anyone still needs that) or instances so we can flush out their sets.

I also like the idea of more events or just getting people together to troll reds at the plaza in solis :) There's no doubt we are a force when we pull together whether that be PVE or PVP or doing trade runs.

TLDR: Toast is all buttered up...oh my.

I have a ton of packs I want to move to my palace for a party and give away in some fashion...but peace happens late and I can't do it (or maint. kills the counter back to 1).

That being said, If this silence is any indication, I may be fading into the background for awhile to get things in order RL-wise. Hopefully it's just my anxiety blowing smoke over nothing, but you know how it is.

I am staying. Unfortunatly my playtime is often different than most. Very early morning (4am MST to 5am MST) and on weekends. RL gets in the way. But I am here, and will participate in whatever I am online for. As for moving stuff, Savannah, I will help when I am on. I have a hauler and nothing to really do.

I dont mind participating more. I would love to help out more also. i am into magic skills so how can those help the events? Also this month I have the best internet at home so the weekends are better this month. I am babysitting at my grandparents house during the week and the internet always dc the game. I am not sure why but it does. I will be more available during the week in october. I think we do need to do more stuff together as guildies. what does TLDR mean? Sorry if it is a stupid question. I just do not know what it means.

I agree with you Dynasty, and I think that those events might be a great chance for new members to blend in, now and in the future.

As a new member, I can say that sometimes I already felt a bit out of place in the guild and was sad about that and trying to know why, and that's no one's fault actually... It's about what Dynasty said, people usually afk at their homes nowadays, and with that, the chat is empty and you feel that you didn't blend in enough lol So i strongly vote for more events, even the silly ones, in a way that we could be in a constant movement.

But for that to happen, I suggest an "event squad" (so no one feels burdened by constant events), and that we try to find new players for the guild too. We don't need to recruit in faction chat to get a bunch of trolls among us, we can try to make new friends at the game and get them to our side. :)

Ps.: Tried my best with the grammar, since english is not my main language xD sorry if anything.

Hi all! I kinda saw this happening. I mean I thought merging guilds would make it easier then not to get stuff going. but why we melded so well is we're the same. we afk and do chores. Not everyone wants to pvp, some people farm, etc. there's a lot of stuff for progression and what not we can do as a group.

Serpentis - we dont have to do the last boss every time. [I know people want dream rings. but if we cant do him anyways. lets at least make some progress by doing 2nd to last boss and getting people gear. thats easy enough to burn through with what we got.]

World bosses - Go defeat and or capture. We could just run around and see how many world bosses we can down once a week. Plus the harrod set will be useful in 2.0.

CR/GR bosses - These guys are easy if you know the mechanics and people listen. Plus will need the sets in 2.0 too. sure you can buy the pieces. but they will probably go up. [Side note : can also use stuff like serpentis chests/cr/gr pieces to start a guild fund to fund pots]

Pack runs - just have everyone make packs and go turn them in for a guild fund or just for everyone to make a little money

Fishing party! - With our lovely bikini clad Host Razlin. Can take people out fishing who want to try it but dont want to go alone.

Wacky event entered here- Cohhilition pride parade! - Nude swimming pack run to freedich! - GUILD PVP THUNDERDOME!

Plenty of things to do. Like I said, as for big raids like serpentis. is there anyways we can use the forums event calendar for sign ups? If enough people sign up we go do serpentis at this time on this day. if no one signs up we skip it and wait for the next sign up day. We are here to help each other as guildies. Pay it forward and all that. It doesn't cost anything to be kind....*throws plushies at everyone*

On a another tangent, I know how useful it can be to be on TS. But some people can't do it for one reason or another....*cough* playing at work *cough* lol. But for raids and events. that being mandatory is fine. But we have more then one way to communicating and talking through text and ts is not impossible. its just a bit more effort.

Instead of putting out why we can't do something. Let's try to put out ways to do it. Positive over negatives. I know we've all been burned. But Diter loves you....and I just wanna cuddle. you can pick which spoon you want to be babe. ^_~

I also suggest a line up for gilda stars, both for cars and ships to everyone. This way we can do the pack runs/fishing that Diter suggested (and other stuff) without struggle.
We can make a draw or something, just need to be clear that by joining the line up to get something you have to commit yourself to help the others later, so the whole thing works well.

Just to remind everyone... We are heavily reliant on TeamSpeak (TS). So if the guild chat seems empty, its usually because we are talking on TS. We even chat while playing other games so we don't miss out on doing something with the guild. Even if you don't want to activate your mic, you should come listen. Typing for me is a pain. If I'm typing, I'm not playing.

And it's not a case of Mandatory TS. It's not. More of a case of you may miss something, or we may miss you asking for something as chat scrolls by. Especially an All Call for pack defense.
