Edit: Added an update to the top of the post
The name we have chosen is the same we used in beta. I got some really good feed back. So everyone welcome to Heroes of Fate
=D our slogan will be something along the lines of "Fate has brought you here"
Forums and website will be up within the month of May !!
Happy New Years All, (You may skip to the part "I plan on starting a guild" to get to the point, everything below but before that is a little about myself)
I am a new member of this forum. My name is Ahmed, and I am a college student at the University of Houston. I am very eagerly looking forward to the launch of GW2 as I am sure the rest of the members here are.
I'd like to tell a bit about myself before I dive into what the title of this post is. I am an absolute gamer in that I play sports games, FPS, RPG, RTS, and of course MMO's. My MMO experience includes but is not limited to runescape, world of warcraft, guild wars, final fantasy, EQ, among others.
Most of my raiding has been done in WoW dating back to the vanilla days. All the way from MC and BWL to the level 80 raids although right this second the names escape me aside from Naxx. I actually was a guild leader back during vanilla wow and was in a top 5 guild in terms of content pushed. (We were one of the first 5 to clear MC and began to push BWL before we lost some of our core raiders to the real world)
As of late I have been playing skyrim which is an amazing game for anyone who needs an RPG to hold them over. The fact that it is not an MMO has taken nothing away from me in terms of the quality of game and fun factor.
I have also been playing ALOT of battle field 3 since i bought it, if you play on X-box live add me "Ahmexx" I play alot of rush and i love getting my friends into squads and doing squad team death match or just playing with squads in general.
Sorry for, what some may consider unnecesarry info, but I think it is important to know a bit about the people you join in guilds as a in-game relationship is similar to a real life relationship in alot of ways. One thing i have learned is that when I find guys and gals with the same interests, demograph, or even time-zone, it helps alot for chemistry and availability for the members to play together and enjoy.
I plan on starting a guild when Guild Wars 2 is launched. I am 100% ready to back the guild financially, I will have a website (which will be ready before launch if I get a good interest in the guild) and if a voice comm is required and not provided in game (I don't think I have read that it will be yet, but correct me if i am wrong) so I would have a ventrilo server in place (if most prefer another form of comm such as team speak, i am open to that).
These are my goals as a member of this guild:
1- To help each other have the best possible experience in GW2
2- To have guild pride and server wide recognition/respect (attained anyway possible)
3- To push content at a pace comfortable for people who work 40 hours a week, have a social life, or are in school
4- To enjoy the game for it's content and story, not get caught up in the gear grind (although I am all for getting down and dirty to get the gear, but just not forget that we are playing for fun and not for the drops)
5- To be feared in the PvP and WvWvW (when other servers play us, they need to be like damn that's the guild that gave us hell last time we battled them a month ago)
These are just a few of the goals, and I know that you can't be the best at everything. But I think if we can at least get 1 and 2 down, the rest will work itself out.
For goal 2, I would like to acheive that by having a player base full of mature, smart, and helpful players. People notice when a guilds member base is of high quality. High quality players doesnt mean you play 15 hours a day, but it means that you enjoy playing the game, you don't troll, and you are knowledgeable about the game.
I haven't decided on a name yet but here is a few, let me know what you think, even if you are not interested in the guild, and I am open to all criticism/suggestions =) Hope to hear back from some of you guys!
"Metta World Dominance" (yes i thought of that when i saw ron artest change his name lol)
"The White Cloaks"
I left a couple of my favs out so noone would steal my ideas =) but if you are THAT interested I can give them out.
