Imagine they took fissure of woe, and split all the quests that you had to complete in one go into about 3 or 4 chunks. Then they made 8 sets of those. That's what dungeons are like.

Explanation.

Super late for you East Coasters seems to be at about 9 pm O_O . Seeing as I get out of school at around that time it'll make it difficult to include you all o.o and from what I hear this isn't something that can really be done with only five people so I think it'd be a lot more fun if I could pull everyone together into 2-3 teams of 5 and also get everyone into vent.

I can rock out on Wednesday night and Thursday night. I am not sure what my weekend plans are. TBH, schedule the guild event whenever its best for the majority. I don't envy your job of having to schedule these things. This is shades of the WoW raid days. Since the guild events are very raid like, why not set up a weekly scheduled date for these? That will help int he future since everyone will know that say Wednesday (example) at such and such time is the guild event day. and time Just a thought smile.gif

You read my mind! I'm setting up a google calender to post up so that people can see when I have things planned/when things are cancelled etc etc etc

Alrighty...so I'm going to rant a bit.

First off, I am not in the OCN guild, so this has nothing to do with you guys.

OK...so I have been first officer, and at times acting as leader of my guild for a little over 6 years. I have been in the same guild for 7 years. So obviosuly we started in GW1. We are and have always been a small guild. Because of our philosophy of play, attitude, and guild principles/virtues, and the fact we have some non-traditional standards we have never attracted a large group of people, but we have always had a small group of really nice to be around people that really help build a family that is our guild. We are casual, but we never wanted a run of the mill guild you can find anywhere. But that's not the point. We are a small guild, never more than 20-30 people at any given time. But we have been around since 2007...2006 for some people.

I thouroughly believe now that ANet hates small guilds. Everything they have done in creating the overall guild system and now with the guild missions just makes it plain hard to be a small guild.

1. Being able to be in multiple guilds. I see pros and cons to this. The good side is that you don't have to choose 1 and done. If one guild is offline but another is online, you still have someone to game with. Cons. I think in a certain way this system trivializes guild loyalty and when you are in a small guild and others are off representing other guilds it really becomes noticeable in both influence gathering and people to play with. For some people it creates a scenario in which they are divided between too many guilds.

2. Lack of alliance system. They should have instead built upon their alliance system from GW1 and improve upon it for GW2. Maybe be able to represent different alliance guilds or not, I'm not sure, but at least bring back a shared alliance chat. Also, this would provide a way to branch out to other guilds to do things with and not completely seperate yourself from your guild like the current system has by representing another guild, completely cutting you off until you re-represent the guild.

3. Guild missions. We don't have influence coming out of our ears like this big guild we are allied with (goes back to our alliance in GW1). These guild mission influence requirements are ludicrous for small guilds. Especially considering we are not really WvW and they want us to fully research Art of War. Rediculous.

So yeah...by all rights ANet probably wants us to just merge into one giant guild. No. That's not who my guild is. We have a tremendous sense of community, friendship and family the way we are and we feel what makes us a great guild would be lost if we just became some super-mega guild. I just wish ANet would see that small guilds exist too. For us its quality not quantity of the guild.

Anyway, done ranting.
