Guild of the Week #28

Guild of the Week #28 - MMORPG.com

Guild Wars has announced the 28th in their long series of Guild of the Week winners. This time around, it is the amusingly named "Angry Businessmens". What better venue for an angry businessman to get his/her frustrations out than Guild Wars:

Formed in the summer haze when temperatures were rising and stocks were falling, the Angry Businessmens is a guild that values having fun over winning. Disagreeing with the stance that guilds must only play to win, where some may not even play at all unless fielding their eight best players, aB instead chooses to allow anyone who so wishes to try playing competitively with them at least once. Players who are looking to learn or improve their competitive skills in Guild Wars and enjoy themselves in the process may find a good match in aB. The guild's motto, "Enable the community" reveals their desire to help foster a community where all players can perform well, even by the standards of the best of teams.

One thing that people may notice about aB is the questionable spelling of their name. It was originally intended to be the "Angry Businessmans" guild, but the guild leader, Xerin, mistakenly typed an "e" instead of an "a." The guild members all agree that the spelling of the name has since grown on them, although some would argue that they should be the Angry Businesspeoples, since they also have female members. The guild's cape is representative of the stock market; it continues to decline until it reaches the bottom, and the red is indicative of their losses!

aB's membership currently totals around 40 members, and they predominantly spend their time in the Tomb of the Primeval Kings or in guild-versus-guild battles. Their entire membership may not be strictly within the guild all at the same time, as their players often guest in other guilds in order to help fill in a missing spot for a guild battle. The vast majority of their core members never leave the Angry Businessmens, however, not even for a day—as someone needs to remain behind to keep an eye on the market conditions.
