  1. Ryvalia added a post in a topic Is game alive?   

    Overall the game is still healthy and GW2 is still one of the top mainstream MMOs out there. PvE wise it's still very active. WvW depends on the fluctuation of server links and population movements.

    Upcoming Forum and Community Updates - 1/9/17
    Greetings TC Community,
    Over the next couple of days I will be consolidating parts of the forum, doing some cleanup, and making things less confusing. Some posts will be moved in the process.
    Here is what will be merged and/or moved for now:
    The "New Players, Administration, and Transfers" forum and it's subforums will be combined into one forum, called "New Players / Help Desk / Suggestions"."TC Events, Training, and Projects" and the "Guides" forums will be merged with a fewer number of subforums.The Builds section will be given a polish pass and a new build draft will be posted, it will be likely that all builds will be moved into one forum with new prefix rules. (ex. "[Engineer] Joe Coaster's Scrapper build")More polish to come after all these are done.As the population starts to return from the holiday break, we will be doing a lot more to bring the community together and further organize. This includes monthly public meetings, video guides, etc.

    Hi Rhae,
    Can you PM me (not here in a reply) with the Account name and API key you used? You likely reached the max client limit, which I can clear once you give me that information.

    About FLUX:
    Flux Capacity is a PvX guild formed in 2011, comprised of like-minded individuals, seeking friendship, fun, and completing content together. We aim to maintain a somewhat casual atmosphere, so that we can reach our goals without placing unreasonable demands on our time, while still progressing and experiencing all that GW2 has to offer.
    Over the years FLUX has cultivated a diverse, honest, mindful, and open community. We welcome mature players of any gender identity or expression, race, ethnicity, size, nationality, sexual orientation, ability level, religion, elder status or family structure. Players from anywhere in the world are welcome to apply, however note we are generally US-based. 
    Our guild forums are active and are full of helpful guides, silly screenshots, guild memes, and near-endless amount of cat pictures. In game you will find many friendly members, officers, and leaders that are willing to help as long as you ask.
     
     

    We have an active core group, and host guild events throughout the week (weekly guild missions, PvE & WvW raids, dungeons & fractals, and more). We enjoy helping out new 80s and returning players, so don't be discouraged if you feel like you aren't experienced enough to join us. Some of our events are geared towards helping inexperienced and new players! As long as you are willing to learn, have fun, and participate, FLUX is excited to have you, and we hope you'll be just as excited to explore content that may be new to you.
    PvE Raid Details:
    FLUX currently raids in Spirit Vale/Salvation Pass every Thursday and Saturday @ 9pm EST. We are looking for more recruits to join our growing raid roster across all roles (Tanking, DPS, Healing). We are always open to help train and equip members for our raids.
    WvW Details:
    FLUX is an organized, hybrid mid-size fight group in WvW. We field 20+ during our raids. Many members that WvW are veterans experienced in both small and large group tactics, and we often have defeated enemy groups larger in number. We are looking to increase our total WvW roster to a sizeable 25+ person group, and are recruiting all professions (especially frontline). 
    Check out our YouTube video playlist to get an idea on how we play in WvW: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqjwTIbYZUwzeKWloODdFCt_m8_T9KjP2

    Rank change (9/10/16)
    Greetings all,
    I have renamed the "Member" rank on the forums to "Unverified". No permissions have been changed for Unverified forum users. This is to make it more clear that users will need to go through the verification process to gain access to the rest of the forum.

    New to the forums? READ THIS GUIDE!
    Welcome!
    You're likely reading this because you're either browsing, just signed up to the forum, or interested in transferring to Tarnished Coast.
    If you haven't already, please click the "Sign Up" button on the upper right corner and create an account. Once you confirm your account via email, you will be at the unverified rank and be able to access only the public parts of the forum.
    There are many other sections to the forum that are only accessible by Verified Coast members, and you would have to verify your account is on TC by following this guide, utilizing the GW2 API.
    Feel free to say hello in the Introductions section!
    If you are NOT on Tarnished Coast but are interested in transferring to TC, or need help to transfer your guild over to TC, please read the Transfer Requests post of this forum and contact one of our representatives via PM or in-game mail or whisper. Representatives of the TC community will be in contact with you within 24-48 hours.
    For accessing voice comms, Tarnished Coast has both community Teamspeak and Mumble servers. Once you are a Verified Coast member on the forums, you can access the Teamspeak and Mumble guides. The Teamspeak is used primarily for coordinating WvW but can be used for general purposes as well. The Mumble houses a few mutli-server guilds and is mainly used for guild-specific or PvE events.
    If you are having any troubles with the forum, please make a a post in the Help Desk subforum. Response turn around times are generally very quick there, so leave a message and we'll work on fixing your issues ASAP!
    Again, welcome to the Tarnished Coast community forums and we hope you enjoy it here.

    Moved Rex's Post
    Just FYI,
    I have moved Rex's post on a report about an incident in CMD to the War Roundtable so it can be resolved between guild leadership and the issue can be investigated.
    Whether in game or on the forums, harsh public accusations of individuals will not be tolerated. A few leaders will be investigating the issue and talking to the parties involved. 
    For future matters, please bring it up privately with guild leadership so they can resolve the issue if a member of a guild is in question. If you rant publicly the issue will be less likely to get resolved, and you will likely get retaliatory responses instead.

    You have the verified rank, should be able to see it. Make sure you don't have any particular ad-blockers preventing iframes. There are no ads on this site.

  12. Ryvalia added a post in a topic For those Toasters that remember what we stood for.   

    TC can continue being a server that works together, and has been building itself back up towards that. This week has been a sign of that momentum.
    Things might tip one way or another, but regardless of hardships past and present, regardless of the difficulties that people might face, those who stay, persevere, and do the hard work of building bridges and working together deserve merit. Kudos to those who continue to volunteer their time and don't give up supporting TC.
    While there are numerous differences between now and when that T-shirt was made, a major difference now compared to back then is that we are finally breaking the cycle of petty disputes and civil wars by opening up communication and making significant progress. TC remains committed, and unlike other servers TC is the only server that does not completely falter.

    Mass-Logout 5/17/16
    Greetings TC community,
    This morning, around 10:30am EST, I conducted a mass-logout on the forums to kick in the forum's reverify script (this is unrelated to the Teamspeak). I haven't done it in a couple months, and since there were only a few people on the forums it was a good time to do so.
    If you are having any trouble logging in, clear your cookies for this site and sign in again. Everything should work just fine. If you still are having issues, please use the contact form to notify staff.

    Verification (on the forums) does not apply to Kaineng users as the two servers are paired not merged, most of the forums are already accessible by members.
