Hi Everyone

Because Arenanet will be wiping guilds for this beta weekend, we'll be employing a new beta roster in order to get everyone into the new guild as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Please Enter Your Details Here

It's easy this time around, as we have enough people in the guild during these betas to not worry about times etc, just enter your GB name and your planned in-game name.

Note: If you have not got a main character name already decided, just enter your account name, BUT remember to include the numbers

I must note that the people on this list will be the first to be added to the guild upon recreation, and it'll just avoid a lot of fuss and save time if you help us out now rather than waiting for the game to go live.

Thanks!

Here's a link to the last one in case you want to copy/paste (remember, don't worry about times for the new one)

ED: Also note that our guild is on the Yak's Bend server (this includes Oceanic / EU guys like myself). If you're maining something else and don't wish to switch, it is perhaps not very logical to post here for this beta (as I don't think the guesting system is live yet - though I could be wrong on this point).

Oh good you came back to edit where the server was. Now I do not have to ask. I will just have to swap servers now because I have currently been playing on a different one. :D

Frak the Police?

#4 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

@Giefcookie: haha - that's my current Human Warrior, though I think I'll make him an asura this time around.

I actually really like the Australian police force - but there was a handlebar mustache and I couldn't resist making something which closely resembled an 80s action-tv-show-villain. Frak the police seemed like an appropriate name : D

I can't believe you are trying to justify that name! My character names will all be completely lore-compatable, like my Asura ranger Undercover Trout.

@Giefcookie: @selfconfessedcynic: Don't either of you dare stealing my sylvari engineer's name, redacted

#8 Posted by AxleBro (798 posts) -

posted. i have no idea why i didn't join the guild for the first 2 BWEs. oh well.

#9 Posted by Dourin (232 posts) -

I will be sticking with plain ol' Dourin for this BWE. Though I do have some fun names for live characters that I do not wish to disclose at this time.

#10 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3308 posts) -
@Dourin: Are you saving the announcement for PAX?
#11 Posted by Dourin (232 posts) -

@Dark_Lord_Spam: I am saving the announcement for launch, so no fucker steals my glorious name. :)

#12 Posted by Maystack (906 posts) -

Couldn't think of a name this time, so I put in whatever. It could change come the time though.

#13 Posted by Dark_Lord_Spam (3308 posts) -
@Dourin: So what you're saying is that it's launch-window DLC.

i enjoy reading your posts

#15 Posted by Dourin (232 posts) -

@Dark_Lord_Spam: Yes. Launch "window."*

*Pricing TBD

#16 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

Okay, currently there are 30ish members on this roster, which is good (as that's about how many we had last BWE) - but there's new names here, so we're missing some players.

If you haven't gotten your name on this list thus far, please get on it (put your account name in if you have not decided on a character name)

#17 Posted by AxleBro (798 posts) -

About when will you be inviting everyone? will it be as soon as the BWE starts or what? because i feel like im going to spend a stupidly long amount of time making a slyvari because i want them to be perfect (I'm weird)

#18 Posted by project343 (2827 posts) -

Done and done! Excited to finally do some GB guild stuffs (ended up on another server for past two betas--mostly due to crazy server lag shenanigans).

#19 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

How we've done it over the last couple of BWEs is that will send a round of invites on creation, then another half an hour after, then we'll all be doing invite duty at some time or another on every hour for the 12 or so (however long it takes to fill the guild out).

I'll probably get , , , and on invite duty this time around. May as well give the officers something to do : )

Shinboy will be manning the flag competition (a post which should go up today or tomorrow).

#20 Posted by ArtelinaRose (1853 posts) -

Went ahead and added myself, I plan on playing this weekend. Not sure how much, since I'll be working.

#21 Posted by Marz (5653 posts) -

Yeah i wasn't in the previous two weekends, but i got a code for this weekend so thought i'd go ahead and toss my name in there.

#22 Posted by bunnymud (717 posts) -

Added myself to the list. Also have that Friday off. Yee for meeee

#23 Posted by IamTerics (414 posts) -

This will be my first time playing so I'm psyched.

#24 Posted by GnomeonFire (745 posts) -

Added myself. I'll be playing this weekend, didn't get around to the second weekend.

#25 Posted by kitchenninja (3 posts) -

Signed up. But I probably won't get some substantial game-time until Saturday afternoon.

#26 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

Woah. 55+ People now - guess this BWE is going to be busier than the last one by a fair margin.

I hope people play together though, I don't want anyone to struggle when they could just ask for help (like has happened in the past) - remember! GW2 rewards people for doing older content, so never ever feel bad about asking! (that especially goes to anyone new)

#27 Posted by bunnymud (717 posts) -

I will be needing help I feel seeing as I am rolling an engineer for the first time.

#28 Posted by PeezMachine (235 posts) -

@bunnymud: I got you, son. Feel free to throw me any Engie questions you have.

#29 Posted by Einherjan (588 posts) -

Added. Now time to download the beta client. I am so excited!

#30 Posted by Subjugation (4720 posts) -

@bunnymud: I'll be doing the same. We can struggle together.

#31 Posted by RobbieMac (535 posts) -

@Subjugation: Asura or Sylvari first? You can choose.

#32 Posted by Funkydupe (3320 posts) -

Gonna kick some ass in tha hood yo for real son. YEAH.

#33 Edited by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

Oh man, less than 20 hours to go!

x2!!

#34 Posted by No0b0rAmA (1490 posts) -

@selfconfessedcynic: Fuck you. Stop spreading that shit, what year do you think it is?

#35 Posted by Maystack (906 posts) -

Is it weird that I often put on looping 8bit music to help me relax? Nyan cat is up there as one of the most played.

#36 Posted by Subjugation (4720 posts) -

@RobbieMac: Hmm, that's a good question. I plan on spending the bulk of my time as a sylvari because it's what I'm interested in for release but I want to squeeze asura in as well. Time to flip a coin.

Coin said asura first. Troll coin ...

#37 Edited by silentdante (57 posts) -

hello, listen to the podcast and decided i want to be a part of the guild if thats ok with everyone. This will be my first beta weekend, but i plan on playing a lot right from the moment it starts on friday. A break for batman viewing and then play some more, haha!

thanks again, looking forward to playing with people, Yak's Bend right?

EDIT: oh i am interested in WVW and PVE mostly, though learning the game and figuring out which profession i want to play is first priority.

#38 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2562 posts) -

@silentdante: Good to have you!

Also, make sure to post in the guild thread here to be added to our listing on the front page (and maybe a short bio of yourself). Then check out the check list.

We're idling on mumble right now if you want to chat. And yes, we will be on Yak's Bend.

Is there no one on these forums that love the 5v5 PVP as much as I do? I need some buddies for it :(

Me! <3

I know that also wanted to do a 5v5 tourney. So that makes 3 of us so far!

Do they still have the restriction of only being able to PvP with players from your own region? It was talked about on the cast a few episodes back but haven't read about it anywhere else.

#45 Posted by deox (216 posts) -

Posted. I can't wait!

I'm not sure. I thought I read somewhere that there would be no server restrictions for PvP (I could be mistaken though, I don't have a link), but I'm not sure about region restrictions.

I read a while back that it is region locked. But idk if that is still the case.

@UssjTrunks: Awesome!
