Kessler Run - A GiantBomb EU/US SWTOR Guild

#1 Edited by Matt (960 posts) -

Server: Corellian Run (PvE - US, East Coast)

About the guild:

Kessler Run is a PvE guild mainly for GiantBomb.com members wanting to play with other duders. We want this to be a mix of EU/US players even though we will play on a US server. We like the idea of getting all the GiantBomb guys together and hopefully will have enough members to do EU and US raids. If this sounds appealing to you (and it should!) get a invite from any current members in game!

Getting an invite

To get a invite open up the social window (o) and hit the who tab at the bottom. Do a search for kessler and you will see all members of Kessler Run. Just send a tell to anyone there and ask for a invite!

Teamspeak Server:

We have a acquired a Teamspeak server we can chat it up while getting our grind on. 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: 206.217.128.154:10227

FAQ:

  • Q: Why Imperial and not Republic? A: Well you're never going to please everyone but after asking around I got the feeling more people wanted to play Imperial. GiantBomb also has a republic guild now! Good Luck Have Bothans
  • Q: Why combine EU and US? A: I think it would be really cool to get everyone on the same server and playing together. Having played on US servers during the beta lag was not a issue.
  • Q: Kessler Run is a dumb name! A: You're dumb!

Boss Kills:

PvP

That's simply where the servers are based. All are welcome.

Please refer to the FAQ

Isn't there a bit of time difference between the continents? West coast US and central Europe would have some problems.

We're hoping to get enough people to join so there will always be people online. It may not happen but we should try.

Yeah, I mean it'd be great! I hope it works out for you guys!
#19 Posted by Funkydupe (3311 posts) -

I'm interested in joining something like this for TOR. My only concern is the server latency as I'm sure it differs a lot.

#20 Posted by Scooper (7882 posts) -

I will want to get into the PVP side so I don't want any kind of added latency. I'll be on the EU servers. Good luck, though.

#21 Posted by DonChipotle (2714 posts) -

I'm interested for sure, but I'm gonna wait until I get the game before I make a guild choice.

#22 Posted by Master_Funk (731 posts) -

Well this will probably be my first MMO (somehow managed to dodge the WoW bullet) so would love to play with GB users.

#23 Posted by General_D23 (1201 posts) -

Although I'm going for a Smuggler Gunslinger first, I guess I'll join up here as a Bounty Hunter Powertech concurrently. I'm in!

#24 Posted by adoggz (2060 posts) -

first off it should be Bessler Run and second what server is this guild gonna be on so i can not be on that server?

#25 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

I dunno if I can get on board with PvP. Any chance of a PvE alternative?

#26 Posted by Matt (960 posts) -

@JohnDudebro: All the cool kids roll PvP!

#27 Posted by Rourkey (180 posts) -

Sent in my application. Very much looking forward to checking this game out

#28 Edited by Dagbiker (6957 posts) -

I would totally be willing to join a PVE guild, may i suggest Perry s Padiwans?

I would absolutely join that guild!

#30 Posted by Xin42 (18 posts) -

Attempted to apply, but it just kept kicking me back to the beginning of the application. I'm going to guess that didn't work :P

#31 Posted by Bocam (3705 posts) -

Well I applied. Now what?

#32 Posted by Matt (960 posts) -

@Bocam: I have to go in and accept the application and I just did that!

#33 Edited by Marz (5648 posts) -

I applied,

#34 Posted by ultraman324 (19 posts) -

Ok I applied. Even though I am not the biggest PVP fan I am sure we can count on plenty of duders watching each others backs. Lets do this.

#35 Posted by CornBREDX (5046 posts) -

darn, i already joined a pre game guild. Kinda wish this had been made like a month ago =P

Also I want to play Republic as I was Imperial for 5 years in SWG so there's that too I guess haha

#36 Posted by project343 (2816 posts) -

I was so up for this... until I saw the PVP server. Sigh. I'll go back over to my rainbow-coloured carebear corner.

#37 Edited by Brodehouse (9776 posts) -

Matt, I really want to join your guild but I have absolutely no interest in Pvp. It also prevents you from playing both factions on the same server, which since I'm focused on the stories is a benefit.

Yeah. I don't like PVP servers, so I'm going to play on PVE. Would it be cool if I started a PVE guild? The other guilds that have been organized on this site are just a jumbled mess and it would be better to have some official ones.

#39 Posted by NathHaw (2760 posts) -

I applied. Sounds as though it could be fun.

#40 Posted by dagas (2792 posts) -

I did the Kessel Run in less than two mouse clicks.

I already have a guild, otherwise I would have joined.

#41 Posted by Brodehouse (9776 posts) -
@CL60 I'm down if it's NA. We should get a sticky with Kessler Run and this PvE guild. Also if Kessler Run is Empire, maybe make the other republic.
#42 Posted by Brodehouse (9776 posts) -

Also it should be named Good Luck Have Bothans.

#43 Posted by BrowncoatGrimm (89 posts) -

If you were going to make a Republic guild with a similar themed name you could call it "Steve's Sabers" or maybe "Lemon's Lekku"

#44 Posted by Brodehouse (9776 posts) -

Space Neon Lemons (who have to work together co-operatively)

Space Neon Lekku

Tunoku's Army

#45 Posted by Matt (960 posts) -

Well it seems like a lot of people are so hot on the idea of rolling on a PvP server. If it really is a big issue I will consider changing it to PvE

#46 Posted by DonChipotle (2714 posts) -

PvP is the best way to play MMOs!

Nice! Or should I say.. niche?! Nah, this is one of the best responses to anything ever.

This is the first MMO I really want to try for realz.. unfortunately I don´t have the time to really play it (or rather I am not willing to just play a single game).. But I would still like to see how this game is going once it´s out. You should do a video diary of sorts and document some of the adventures the Kessler Runners have to brave. Also, I hope this is a "don´t skip the story" guild, since I´m kinda sorta interested in that.

i don't get this though, are they just afraid of getting ganked?   that happens very rarely in the game world.... (well at least in WoW it didn't happen often and i played on Tichondrius which was at one time the pvp capital in NA servers, though i remember Tarren Mill wars that lasted for days)..  thus having a guild giantbomb duders can stick up for each other if there is an annoying Jedi causing trouble for someone...

That's my thought process too. I feel a lot of people think PvP servers are just full of ganking 24/7 and that's not the case. I find open world PvP keeps things interesting and I wish more people would try it.

In Guild Wars 2 you can join as many guilds as you like. BW is behind the times when it comes to MMO's it seems. Also, GW2 is box price only. You get the whole game just for buying it. Huge persistent open world with no monthly fees. I don't see this game keeping its sub fees for very long.
