Apocolyte added a topic in NATechnicolor Broadcast [NEON]Guild Background
Whether you’re here because you’ve been stunned by Endelon’s fashion sense (it really is that good), intrigued by the rumors of our glorious guild hall, or just like the way she says ham (mmhmm), welcome to the official NEON guild post!
Who or what is NEON, you might ask? Technicolor Broadcast [NEON] is about providing a fun and relaxed WvW atmosphere in a small group setting. Our guild’s goal is to work on capturing and holding objectives while not being afraid to engage the enemy. Some people might call this a havoc guild, but who even knows what that means anymore. Anyway, you also might have heard about us from our frequent appearances on Oprah’s Favorite Things (featured from 2005 to 2011) but in those days our guild was actually just a collection of cashmere sweaters.
NEON is made up of an illustrious Tarnished Coast pedigree of WvW players (diversity!). The guild leaders are Apocolyte and Endelon (no relation), but everyone is encouraged to work together as a group. Please note the added convenience of our account names being the same as our in-game names.
Apocolyte, former KGB agent and smuggled vodka enthusiast, was first introduced to WvW in PHS. Young Apocolyte proceeded to touch almost every guild on Tarnished Coast including (but not limited to): an officer position in CERN, former guild leader of ODIN, and questionable Water 1 (sometimes Water 2) in ZzZz.
Endelon began life as a WvWer thanks to TC Legend Miniplague (no relation). After joining CERN, Endelon also sampled a variety of TC WvW guilds. Endelon is currently writing a made for TV miniseries about his gaming experiences in which the lead role will be played by Whitney Houston’s hologram.
NEON welcomes all players interested in WvW. We strive for an upbeat, relaxed atmosphere, but players need to be able to follow the tag, take initiative, and follow directions. Generally, you can play on the class that you want but there are some limits to things—no Nomad’s, no PVT necromancers, etc. There’s no class or build requirements yet, but in general roam-y builds and classes are highly encouraged. We welcome suggestions and feedback and expect members to be open to criticism and suggestions in turn. Having a microphone is pretty much required. There’s only room for a few non-mic users because having to read text while fighting or doing things in WvW is really annoying. There is no official rep policy, but if we don't see you for a week, we might get the hint that you're not really interested.
We tend to run untagged (to not pull players away from the main tag) and in our own guild channel, but if you’re interested in hanging out feel free to hop into channel and follow to see what we're all about. Conversations in guild channel can get weird (and racially offensive!) and a thick skin is required. If you're easily triggered then tumblr over that way, bitch.

None because we're hipsters.
Whisper or mail if interested.*

Apocolyte added a topic in Coast TalkThe price of Mystic Coins aka TY Anet, we really needed another gold sinkIf you're a guild leader upgrading a guild hall or someone working on a legendary, please post in this discussion about Mystic Coins:
Currently, the only way to get them is through Daily Logins and the occasional MF Daily and the price is sky rocketing. They're needed for crafting most fancy weapons, including legendaries, and a whopping 780 are required to get all of the WvW buffs unlocked (the only other guild upgrades that need these are the decoration merchants). Maybe it's a petty thing, but this feels like another thoughtless design decision on Anet's part that hurts WvWers more than anyone (we want to upgrade our guild halls, but we need shiny legendaries to look fabulous dammit). So yeah, if this bugs you, please post and maybe Anet will do something about it. I can dream.
