Good Luck Have Bothans - GiantBomb NA PVE Guild (Republic)

#1 Edited by CL60 (16906 posts) -

*Insert snazzy guild banner here that I'm too lazy to create at 1:00 AM.*

Anyway, every other guild thread on this board is just confusing and nobody knows what the actual guilds we will use are, so I propose we use this one for PVE, and Matts for PVP(Kessler Run) since not everybody likes to play on PVP servers, I thought it would be better to just have 2. If this sounds good to you, you can go apply here http://www.swtor.com/guilds/297234/good-luck-have-bothans This will be Republic, while the PVP guild will be Empire.

Everybody has the ability to invite others. So if you want an invite go into the /who menu and search for Good Luck Have Bothans and just message somebody and they'll invite you. :)

Server - Mind Trick

Teamspeak Server:

We have a acquired a Teamspeak server we can chat it up while getting our grind on.(Provided by Matt, and the Kessler Run) Download Teamspeak HERE and then click THIS to join the server. If you want the server details they are as follows. There is no password.

Address: 206.217.128.154:1022

Guild Deployment

Good Luck Have Bothans, and Kessler Run have been deployed onto the server "Mind Trick". Pretty awesome name if I do say so myself. Anyways. When you get into the game, make sure you pick Mind Trick as your server, and when people get in the game, the guild will be created and we will be ready to go.

If you're not already in the guild, just message somebody that's already in, and we'll get you an invite.

We got our two Giant Bomb Official Classic guilds. We need to lure a moderator in here to sticky Kessler Run and GLHB up top so anyone passing through can find them.

The guild stuff on the TOR website is down for maintenance right now, but I'll definitely keep an eye on this since I prefer PvE servers.

What's everyone thinking about rolling? I'm leaning towards commando right now - I want the option to heal on my first character, and trooper armor looks really sweet. Plus, miniguns. And Jennifer Hale.

I see the fun part in having guilds with giant bomb catch phrases and in jokes but wouldn't it be easier to keep the names generic?
 
You know;
 
GIANT BOMB PVE GUILD for this thread  
 
and 
 
GIANT BOMB PVP GUILD for the Kessler Run thread. 
 
This would make it easier for site members and fans to find and join the guilds easily once the game launches.

Joining the minute the website comes back up online. Have many Bothans.

After rolling Commando in the beta, I'm certainly going to keep going with that. Was adoring where the story was heading, particularly after a certain level-10-ish revelation. And yes, Jennifer Hale FTW for sure. I played a male character in the beta, but boy is that changing.

The story is SO Mass Effect, it's scary. And they have mechanics lifted right out of Mass Effect's soldier class. I mean, how could you not add a little more FemShep on top of that?

Dammit I was going to be female Commando too!

Maybe I'll go Jedi knight and then we'll have a tank if we want to plan some GB flash points. Plus, Solid Snake.

#7 Posted by bunnymud (717 posts) -

Looks like I'll be down with the PvE clan

I was between that and consular, so if there is a ton of troopers I might do that (plus hey, nolan north!) but I like the design of commandos more. I'm definitely rolling a healer for my first character, though.

I think it's back up. At least I got on. So everybody, go go go!

#10 Edited by insane_shadowblade85 (1393 posts) -

Awesome, PvE and Republic? I'm in.

Edit: Signed up for the guild. Feels kind of weird that I have to apply to it (I've never applied for a guild before, hence why it felt weird).

#11 Posted by Nexas (625 posts) -

Just applied. Plan on rolling Gunslinger when the game comes out.

#12 Posted by Dagbiker (6939 posts) -

When I get my preorder, later this month I will join

#13 Posted by Matt (957 posts) -

Haha good choice on the name :D I think we have a good thing going here. A solid choice depending if people want Republic or Empire... Empire is clearly better

#14 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

Dammit. I was still on the fence about getting The Old Republic, but these community guild names are just too awesome.

You take that back!

I'm gonna throw dirty socks at the Empire! Take my sweaty death cloths!

We also have an ally; GLHB stands with us.

That's mostly just a guild for me and close friends that I started ages ago, BUT WE STAND TOGETHER WITH OUT "BRO"THANS

I applied. I'm think I'm going to make a Trooper so that I can name him Shockmaster. Then, everything will be perfect. Are many people getting in on that 5 day head start deal?

#24 Posted by CL60 (16906 posts) -

Unfortunately. It seems that I am unable to accept new people currently as it says they are currently finalizing the guild stuff.

#25 Posted by Dagbiker (6939 posts) -

I didnt join before deployment, but i am looking forward to joining In January.

#26 Edited by StarvingGamer (8025 posts) -

I look forward to shooting rainbows of love from my fingertips into all of you.

For the Republic!

EDIT: Did anyone else notice that they're going to be assigning servers at their own discretion? Does the rival guilds thing in any way guarantee that both guilds will end up on the same server?

They say they will try to put allies and adversaries on the same server, that's mostly the point of the allies/adversaries systems I believe.

#28 Posted by Brodehouse (9599 posts) -

Seems like we'll have a good amount of healers.  I'm thinking of either going tank spec Jedi Knight or a DPS spec Commando.

I'm going healer most likely.

#31 Edited by bunnymud (717 posts) -

Where on the GLHB site do you register to join? I preordered a couple of days ago

Edit: Just saw page 2. I'll join up when they get the guild thing straight. I'm either going hardcore pew-pew or swoosh swoosh

#32 Posted by LethalKi11ler (1405 posts) -

I'm totally down :)

#33 Posted by Floppypants (798 posts) -

Applied :)
I'm definitely going to be a tank, but Jedi Guardian, Jedi Shadow, or Trooper Vanguard...?  It's incredibly hard to choose.
Hope to group up with some duders come release.

Aw, I was really hoping to see an Empire PvE Giant Bomb guild. Everyone knows the Republic is home of the kind of anti-Batman heathens and Kesslerites.

Kessler Run is actually now PvE as well, and we hope to be both on the same server.

I am so down for this. Head Start is next week on the 15th right? Do we have to wait till then to apply?

gonna go Consular

Yeah, just check back here periodically and I will inform what server the guild is on, and we can go from there. All you will need to do is message somebody from the guild in-game, and you'll be invited.

Oh! Excellent. Just have to see what server it is...hoping for a RP server - I prefer the community there, usually fewer idiots (note: not no idiots, just fewer)

#39 Posted by bunnymud (717 posts) -

After doing research, I think a Smuggler is best suited to me. I like to play support in groups. Jack of all trades, master of none.

@Bwast: Well that's the greatest video I have ever seen.

To get ready for SWTOR I decided to buy myself a new back lit keyboard (the space bar on my current keyboard is wobbly and it's not back lit), now I'll be able to see what keys I'm hitting when I play games at night.

#42 Posted by General_D23 (1201 posts) -

Ah. Since Kessler Run is PVE too now, I'll join up here with my Gunslinger when Early Access starts too.

I do support eventual creations of PVP guilds, should there be enough support, but this setup is probably for the best, for now.

#43 Posted by Nephrahim (1119 posts) -

Sadly, me and my friend want to join a PvP server, so I won't be able to check out the giantbomb guilds initially. Maybe later!

#44 Posted by Libberate (17 posts) -

I've been enjoying giantbomb video content for a while but just VERY recently actually registered a forum account. Would it be wierd if I joined the guild or is anyone welcome?

#45 Posted by kurtkless (89 posts) -

I'm in the minute the site comes back up!

You can join.

Have the game preordered, though dont have a mic at the moment. Might pick one up eventually but wondering if its a necessity.

#48 Posted by Breadfan (6589 posts) -

Count me in.

#49 Posted by Zimbo (875 posts) -

I would love to join the guild. First MMO I will have played though so I am kinda nervous. Wouldn't mind having some Giant Bombers watching my back!

Great name by the way.
