Guild Wars has released a new Guild of the Week. This one, the 31st in their continuing series, focuses on the guild, "Dark Saga". The guild itself is about a half a year old and started with only 4 gamers from Turkey. Below you will find a sample of the profile on this guild.
Dark Saga traces its origins back to over half a year ago in the Mediterranean. It began with only four Turkish gamers who had found their way to Guild Wars. Within three months, by word of mouth or in-game contacts, the guild had swelled to an impressive one hundred members. While Dark Saga places no restrictions on membership, currently the entire guild is comprised of Turkish players. Because they share a location and language, Dark Saga members not only play together in Guild Wars, they also get together outside of the game.
A self-professed group of "hard to please" gamers, the original members of Dark Saga invested a great deal of time exploring other online titles before coming to Guild Wars. Out of all the games they experimented with, however, they found Guild Wars to have the best competitive play. Now six months later, Dark Saga's members confess that the game has become something of a lifestyle for the guild. Through dedicated playing, the guild's members seek not only to improve their standing on the ladder—but also to enjoy themselves while they compete.
Dark Saga is a guild that caters to those who favor both the competitive and cooperative aspects of Guild Wars. Guild members play through the game's quests and missions not only to gain skills, but as a way of exploring the play styles of the different professions. When newer members are ready to get their feet wet in the competitive aspects of the game, the guild is there to help. Every week, Dark Saga sets aside a day dedicated to help acclimate new players to the competitive game.
