Guild Wars has named yet another "Guild of the Week". This week's GotW are known by the unique name of "The Pirates of BBQ Bay". Don't let the strange name take you off guard. This group is made up of skilled and competitive players.
The days of pillaging and marauding in Guild Wars began for the Pirates of BBQ Bay during the Beta Weekend Events when the guild was formed by a group of longtime friends. With each successive BWE, they brought new crew members aboard, resulting in the guild as it is today. Comprised of mostly older and highly competitive players, the Pirates have their eyes set on conquest—but they never forget to have a little fun along the way.
The guild’s name is a good reflection of their sense of humor, and was chosen by popular vote of their members. The name was, in their own words, “the obvious choice once we had narrowed our options down to those combining one of the four great archetypes, an indisputably delicious food item, and a body of water.” This lightheartedness carries over into the guild’s battles, where members often inflict any number of bad pirate jokes on opposing teams before the battle begins.
The Pirates are also well known within the Guild Wars community for the numerous videos that they have released. These videos have featured everything from ludicrous gimmick builds in action to highly competitive GvG matches intended to help teach others by example. As a guild heavily focused on PvP, the Pirates are interested not only in winning, but in improving the overall level of competition.
