AUGUST ALREADY!!!! The dog days of summer are approaching and in a month many of us need to return to adulting (*Miri Speak)!
The big play has been for Dark Vs Light event taking place in SW: TOR and many of us have been taking advantage to revisit old storylines and revisit old game content which we had not touched as well as working on the achievements rewards for not just leveling gear but “loot” from reward packs just from game play!
Our membership over the summer has remained steady and on par since opening up recruitment last month again. We have had really great people who have joined us, and I can not think of better gamers we enjoy spending time with! We still maintain our consistent average of 15-20 players on at peak times. This however has created a somewhat problematic issue (A GOOD THING) where we have had too many players for eight player ops and not enough for a full 16 player run.
So we are considering opening up the roster to bring in at least another 5 to ten players to join us, while maintaining that we will not exceed our 40 player cap during prime so no one is left out, drowned out or excluded.
CONQUERORS OF HOTH!
Not only during July did we maintain ranking every week in the top ten leader boards for conquest but we also took the number one spot and everyone who hit their personal goal during the week of 19JULY won the in game title of “CONQUERORS OF HOTH!” Huge congrats to everyone who participated, and continue to participate.
Reminder: Our weekly conquest contests are active again. We have over 30 cartel packs as well as armor sets and mounts in the guild bank to give away each week to those who meet their personal conquest goals with the highest points contributed overall from their legacies! Check the event’s page (Calendar) for rules.
Operations have picked up again, especially for the DvL achievements where most of our members are either 4/5 or 5/5/ We have been running dedicated Saturday night groups again, every weekend along with mid-week impromptu pick-up groups. One huge compliment recently received was when we were short for a 16 player operation and had to look for two players to backfill roles. “Impressive, a guild that only needs to fill two vacant slots for an op and my guild only has five players on.”
Thanks to our tanks: Scar and Pepper; our healers: RC, Tala, Straike, Rol and Kali; everyone who jumped in for DPS; and especially those who helped guide, lead, and coordinate the ops: Dobs, Don, Ost and Sam! The ops would not of been successful if not for all involved!
A huge shout-out needs to go to Sabine Visla and everyone who helped with decorations and time spent on our guilds Yavin Stronghold Since we have had it, it has just been a place. A dumping ground for decorations we did not use. Now it’s a location! Over four days of redecorating Sabine themed it to be a Mandalorian base! It is impenetrable! Stop over and view it!
The guild ship is also still a work in progress. Many guilds turn their ships into a floating space hulk with casinos. No rhyme or reason. We have a battleship!!!!!! With our bridge, Officer Deck and Hangars unlocked and decorated we are going to be working on our next set of themed rooms consisting of crew quarters, briefing room, armory and infirmary!
Thanks to everyone who has been helping donate time, resources, decorations and encryptions!
As we continue to grow and to help foster the casual-social environment with like minded gamers who’s company we enjoy, we are looking for players to help fill a couple of guild roles.
Recruiter (x2): Willing to take time out of playing to bring new players into the guild which continues to foster our values and play styles.
Ops Leader (x2): Willing to schedule, coordinate, and run ops groups on dedicated days/nights and weekends for both experienced players and make players new to ops welcome and fun.
Some discussion topics currently taking place on our forums highlighted for attention.
Learn about those of us in this guild and feel free to share a bit or a lot about yourself. Never know who may be just down the road from you!
Ops Scheduling: When and What?
Tell us what days/nights works best for you so we can see about scheduling ops around the majority of playtimes.
We won’t always be able to have everyone who signs up for the op a guaranteed slot though we try. We want to make it better for all, so share your thoughts, opinions and ideas.
DvL Achievements Needed:
What do you need to complete? Getting grouped up together to have runs done.
Thanks to everyone who makes this a successful and fun guild to be part of when in game!
Without you, we would not be, SA!
