Sup fellow [BOMB]ers, this thread is basically here to give y'all the lowdown on guild events that the officers are running, so you know when and where they are, as well as who to contact if you have any questions. For a full list of officers and their in-game names, check the official guild thread. If you have any ideas for events or want to request any changes to the current ones we are running, feel free to throw your ideas in this thread.
1. Thurbsday Night Throwdown
What is it? A run through WvW, striking down as many enemy invaders as we can. We usually try to end the night with a guild bounty mission.
When is it? Thursday nights at 5PM Server Time (Pacific US)
Who is running it? @thurbleton
2. Saturday Night Shenanigans
What is it? We attempt at least one of each type of guild mission that we have available. At this time this is both bounties and guild treks, but we are close to unlocking guild rushes as well. Afterwards we usually run around PvE for a bit and do something like a jumping puzzle or mini-dungeon as a large group.
When is it? Saturday nights at 6PM Server Time (Pacific US)
3. Karaoke Night
What is it? We all hang out on mumble and sing dumb songs together with the help of a jukebox on the server. We usually run a dungeon to go along with the singing. Adult beverages are also usually involved. Check out the Karaoke Night thread over here for more details as well as some...interesting video.
When is it? These have less of a strict schedule, but they usually occur either Friday Nights around 7PM Server or Saturday after Saturday Night Shenanigans. Just PM me to see if we are hosting one that week.
Who is running it? Me, with occasional help from @crusarian
4. Fractal Fridays
What is it? Want to get into Fractals but can't find a low-level group? Or are you simply scared of getting yelled at by angry randoms for not knowing some minute detail of some fractal? Fear no more! Our fractal experts are here to get you on the path to Fractal glory. We will try to do lower level runs as to get as many people as possible involved, but the exact difficulty level will depend on the level of the people in the group and what they want to run. We can even run multliple groups at once if demand is high enough, so no need to worry about missing out if the first group fills up or if it is too high level.
When is it? Friday Nights at 6PM Server Time (Pacific US). Depending on turnout, we might make this every other week or once a month. If this is something you want us to do every week, let us know by showing up!
Who is running it? Our resident Fractal Master @aterangelus as well as myself, in addition to any other officers that want to run a group.
1. sPvP Night
We are looking for an awesome guild member to step up and run a Structured PvP night for the guild. We totally have some people that are interested in sPvP, but a lot of the other officers either don't know enough to host an event or are caught up in other things to host one. Think you have what it takes? Let us know! You don't have to be the best PvPer out there. In fact, you don't even have to be good at all! All we ask is that you put on a fun event for fellow members, whether we all win or lose.
2. One-Time Special Events
These are probably my favorite events to plan and to host. I ran a fair amount of special events in GW1, including a game-wide scavenger hunt that resulted in some really nice (and expensive!) prizes for the winners. I would like to do something like this for our guild, or even Yak's Bend as a whole. The cool thing about these is that, say we decide to run a large scavenger hunt for the server, the whole guild could get involved in the planning as well as the event itself. It is events like these, ones where your level or skill don't really matter at all, that can really bring a guild together for a great time. This category is the one I really want people's feedback on, because the more ideas we have for these special events the crazier and more awesome they will be!
As stated above, feel free to comment on any of the above events, or feel free to suggest your own! Thanks for your time
