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

Guild Wars 2 Recruitment Update #1

[ Thu 19th Jan, 2012 @ 2:37am ] by Darkademic

Just a quick update; since uploading the recruitment video and posting advertisments on various GW2 forums, I've received 13 applications, 7 of which have been successful so far. Welcome to our new members Prixo, Donkz, Drake6666, Etalith, Heartless, Tyskie and Keldonlighthand - looking forward to some epic gaming sessions in the not too distant future.

We'll continue reviewing new applications as they come in; I'm being quite selective - we don't want just a long list of people who are going to disappear or have little to no interaction with the rest of the clan/guild.

Guild Wars 2 Recruitment Video

[ Tue 27th Dec, 2011 @ 11:18pm ] by Darkademic

I've just completed the new DkR recruitment video for Guild Wars 2. I'm really happy with it; hopefully it'll drive some traffic our way and intice some folks to sign up. The game might be a while away still, but from the looks of things it's going to be a huge hit and I want DkR to be there in force right from the start. I'm not sure if I'll make an equivalent movie for Diablo 3, as it won't really require the same levels of recruitment, but I might just do it for fun.



Some time after Guild Wars 2 is released, when we have a solid core membership, I'll make a new Guild Wars 2 video which goes through all the members as I've done in the past, using in-game footage rather than trailer footage. Anyway, enjoy!
