    If you see effective call outs being done. Might I suggest if they have an extra guild slot they can join cmd "Command Prompt". Effective and reliable scouts and commanders are free to join. For most of us, if we see a call out in cmd, its more alerting than team chat

    Normally I can turn team or map chat around with some amusing and distracting comments. Map was fine. Team was horrendous. Block people. The callouts are not important enough to put up with racial slurs. And I saw a lot of that crap yesterday. 
    Keeps it real people!

    Thanks, Phlo. I'll contact you in game. (Thanks also to Bliss, with whom I'm already chatting.)
     
    We're a mixed bag (erm, wait, bad metaphor for WvW!). We already derp around and zerg mindless without a guild, so we're not looking for that. We also aren't dedicated WvWers; our idea of a gear check before running a T4 fractal is ...asking each other what snacks we have next to the computer. Still, most of us are willing to spend some time training, try someone else's build/comp, swap profs etc. Does that help? I'll pop you an in-game mail, so we can chat a bit in real time.

    Okay so now I have a wider view of what we are in for.  I know its going to wear on people with the queues, I know thats going to be difficult to suffer through.  I myself spent a half hour crafting last night before I got in.  Consider this time to be doubly sure you are ready. In any case, Phase two of the plan.
    1. Guild leaders, I know you are already recruiting but now is time for overdrive, every person you pull into your guild is one step closer to long term retention.
    2.  It's going to be frustrating, try playing music softly in the background, take a break when you need to and keep it light.
    3. Call outs in map chat for TS and Discord were great last night-I have no thoughts here.
    4. When people get toxic in map chat, first off don't rise to the bait. Remember the pugs are reading this and alot got into ts last night and heard every word our commander said (called him out on it a few times to it was funny).  Make sure you remember that PUG isn't suppose to be a derogatory term.  These people around you could end up being great wvwers and phenomenal friends, give them a chance.
    The key to all of it is to keep it fun, I promise you, those like I was will stay if you hook them.  They won't get hooked if thier miserable, try not to go off on vendettas, if you wipe in the same area twice do not return to that area for some time.  Take small objectives to build your group back up in confidence.  Think about the mental condition of your pug group as much as thier physical being there.
    #### Oh by the way, the most unflattering thing for a server is speaking poorly and raging about people who have left. This type of drama has been rampant over the past few weeks.  I know that some of you felt betrayed by people that were close friends but getting your group wiped over and over just so you can kill one person from another server, or getting into rage fests in team/map chat about people who have left, is inappropriate.  Honestly I get the anger, and your entitled to it of course, but your not entitled to ruin other peoples WvW experiences by bringing them down with bad blood.
    Get over it and move forward.  You need to look to the future, and keep the past in the past.

    How serious you looking to get? You looking to derp around, or would you run guild builds? Are you looking to mindless zerg or fight outnumbered? Finally, what classes would you guys be?

    You are all always welcome with ODIN Jez. We don't have a strict rep policy so you are free to continue to pve (and we have ppl who do that) or run with us. We have people who run late NA and during our raids are running larger groups.   Feel free to pm any of us (myself Freyja, Goseldt, Thelgar, Osprey etc) in game.
    For larger open field combat you can't go wrong with RFG or DIS.

    Half Dozen of Us, LF Guild
    I PvE with a small group of Coasters who are looking for a dedicated WvW guild.
    There's roughly half a dozen of us.We tend to havoc together, usually in twos & threes, using our own mumble.We T4 fractal together (and do a few raid encounters, also together).We tend to play later, Pacific timeWe're open to large-scale combat; two of us ran with Jadon & Norpass Imperium back during era of Seasons.In other words, we're PvErs looking for the right guild. Any recommendations?
     
    Thanks!

    Father Bliss you just go into the Chaos category which thankgoodness we need more like you.
     
    Max I heart you, your thoughts and ideals are sexy.  I get what your saying about Desert BL its cool its mine anyhow... you can't have it. lol.  Anyhow that part was sorta jokish with a bit of seriousness.  
     
    As for lots of tags my idea is that we just work withthe many that will pop up, its going to be frustrating, if they won't work with you lets just live and let live lets organize best we can with those who will.
    Often times people stay because of a remarkable experience they have with a group or even just one person on a server, lets create those experiences.

    Also, considering I am chaotic neutral I will choose the side of evil. And good. When it is evil. Plus my alternate personality wants to squeeze some buns. Those ones that the big hot dogs go into. You know the type. Long and strong. Bound to get the friction on.

    I few things I want to see that I am reasonably good at which will help contribute to the overall community. Theme nights. More along the lines of similar concepts (like a super hero night or something.) think cosplay versus class nights. It doesn't nerf our ability to succeed and can be entertaining. What I want to see is for our reputation to return as a fun loving and competitive server. We can do both. 
    Realize that all servers are going to go through these changes too. Queue times will shift. People may come back here again that were previously on the server. Give people a shot. 
    This game still has one of the best overall communities. Seeing the type of players that come along with games like BDO (which wasn't too bad), revelation Online or blade and soul makes me glad we have what we do.    Their forums are full of trolls and salt. It looks like the GW2 forum that should not be named. 
    With the shifts in meta lately GW2 strategies that were efffective years ago are amazing. People are theory crafting again and it is a blast. 
    Just remember your small group contribution counts for a lot. While that big Zerg is occuried we can be off getting some good fights and taking objectives elsewhere. 
    Yes this is a rare serious post from me. Lol. I am passionate about this game. We now return you to your regularly scheduled pantsless mayhem.

    Couldn't agree more, Aggie.  Except that part about the desert BL.  I hate that place.
    These impending changes are going to have a strong impact on our game, and it really is up to us whether it's going to be a positive or negative impact.  We're going to get a lot of new players who don't (yet) love WvW the way we do.  Connecting with them on a personal level is vital to getting them in the game.
    I'm curious to see how a surplus of tags is going to work out, especially if these tags don't know what they're doing / won't cooperate.  In past experience, tags like this usually have a negative impact on the map, in particular if we need a coordinated effort to defend an objective, take camps back, push a particular area, etc.  Harassing and haranguing them doesn't work.  Can't force them to cooperate. But long term, if they like it, they'll stick around and learn.  You need that emotional investment, though, because if they don't care, there's really nothing you can say to them to make them go defend NE tower while they're killing the stupid harpy.

    If we have a large influx of new players on the 6th, it will be the perfect opportunity to keep them coming back in.  I'm in the process of setting up the first of a series of weekly public training sessions on Thursday the 8th, the first one being an intro to WvW.  If we can keep the atmosphere friendly, positive and laid back, and we can retain a fair amount of the new players, TC will get a much needed shot in the arm.  The weekly training sessions will help refine the new players, and that'll go a long way into helping to get TC back to being TC.
    Remember to be encouraging rather than demanding, and forgiving rather than scolding.  All of the things I've been writing up about teaching the militia, this is the golden opportunity to use them.  This patch couldn't have happened at a better time.  This is the opening we've been preparing and waiting for.  It's show time, people.

    I too will embrace this. To thine own self be true and for this reason I shall remain but a split personality of both good and evil. My cares if indifference lay only on the battlefield. Where is thy sword an shield that carry me thur the day of bloodlust. I beseech all you reckless demons and life stealers to tow the line and embrace these incoming minnons of pure reward gathering. I hold your feet to the open fire to remember that not all tary alike but in their natural freedom to do as they shall in the world that benefits no-one.  But in fact everyone. Pants be Damn. No shoes... No shirt... No problem. We are here. We are ready.
