Guild Wars 2 Recruitment Update #4

[ Mon 12th Mar, 2012 @ 4:16pm ] by Darkademic

Since the last update we've had 27 new members join. So.. welcome to: Cr0ssfire, Tuskz, Asi, Consaii, Toglos, Xiomaro, Keefikus, ToXic, Suumpmolk, Doeke, Jobenson, Emmure, thoryyk, DeanAdamFry, Tarz, Jonesy, OptimalSteve, Sophmoronic, Apolon, Vetrie, gojou, Umrtvovacz, Ashqaz, Lewball98, Braeker, Vaz and Rabar69!

The amount of activity and interaction is great considering so many new people have been effectively thrown together, and it's already really starting to feel like a closely knit community. In fact it's weird to have listed some of the above members as "new recruits" as it seems like they've been in [DkR] for ages! On the flip-side, there are a handful of new members that we haven't heard from since they joined, so if you haven't posted on the forums or dropped into Mumble yet then please do so. We're getting to the point where we'll remove inactive members to make way for new applicants so we don't go over our self-imposed cap.

Applications have slowed down to a more manage… continue reading

I Want to Hear Your Sexy Voices

[ Sun 4th Mar, 2012 @ 3:49am ] by Sketch

We have a new Mumble server. We want to build our community and get to know each other. The best way to do this is to play games together and just hang out on Mumble in the evenings.

What do I need?
- Install Mumble: http://mumble.sourceforge.net
- Video guide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyu9qAmU0a8
- Mumble details: 85.236.100.59:5762

The Rules
- You must connect to an appropriate mumble channel.
- You need to be a conversationally fluent English speaker.
- Your name in Mumble must match the name you use on the forums.
- Use push-to-talk unless you can guarantee a complete lack of unwanted noise when using another activation method.

Cheers,

Sketch

Edit: Please put your Steam name in your comment so that we can all add each other easily. You can do this by clicking "Self" at the top, and then going to "Change Comment". Type in your Steam username and click "OK".

Guild Wars 2 Recruitment Update #3

[ Thu 23rd Feb, 2012 @ 11:26am ] by Darkademic

We've had a ton of new members join since my last post, so welcome to: Brewzr, elyan, Hellgaunt, Lordn00b, uri54321 (Riku), Abhorsen, Nvrdie, Dimez, J1Tah, Dagnir, Ace_Rimmer, metareal, years1hundred, Purdy, Maelis and Tsu.

That brings us up to 41 members, 43 if you include FaRRoW and KeniF, but they most likely won't be playing GW2 because FaRRoW has vanished (see forum thread) and Ken only wants to play CS. :)

I'm not really sure what the member limit should be. As I've mentioned on the forums and in previous news posts, I do not intend this to become an enormous guild of anonymous members - it's quality over quantity - but quality doesn't necessarily preclude a large guild.

Guild Wars 2 Recruitment Update #2

[ Mon 6th Feb, 2012 @ 3:01pm ] by Darkademic

Ten members have been added to the roster since the last recruitment update.

Sketch and Sn1peTr1f (now Zog0t), who were important members of the clan during its TF2 days, have returned for Guild Wars 2. This actually means that all of the core members from the TF2 clan are making a comeback - quite the reuinion!

Also, welcome to Smiteras and chr, housemates of Dispatchio and myself.

Welcome to Ruthio, Dispatchio's fiancée, to Jennicat, DarkWinter's girlfriend, and to Aporia, Zog0t's girlfriend. Nice to have some new female additions to the clan!

We also have Skrark, a long-time friend of Reaper with whom I PvP'd in WoW with over the course of 2011.

Finally we have two completely new guys, Jycerian and Genmix.

Welcome to you all. We're now at a healthy 25 members, but will continue to recruit as long as decent applications are being received.

Guild Wars 2 Open Beta & 2012 Release Confirmed

[ Thu 26th Jan, 2012 @ 5:06pm ] by Darkademic

Finally it is upon us. A few days ago, Mike O' Brien—founder and president of ArenaNet—made a blog post heralding the year of the dragon and confirming that Guild Wars 2 will be released later this year.

The post also includes details of the beta events that will be held for GW2. Selected press will be granted access to the beta in February, and then in March/April access will be ramped up so that many players will be able to test the game out.

Mike purposefully avoided using the term "open beta" because unlike many MMOs released over the past few years, GW2 will not have a fully open beta. I think this is a wise decision, as the open betas held by previous games haven't really been beta tests at all, but rather an opportunity to play the game before it's released. ArenaNet's approach means that they actually want to use the beta events for testing the game and identifying any issues that need working out prior to release.

Needless to say, this is exciting news, and I personally did… continue reading
