State of The Game: Guild Interview

State of The Game: Guild Interview -

The Guild Wars official site has been updated with another edition of their State of the Game article series. This week they interview Delta Formation, the guild that won October's Monthly Automated Tournament.

Most members of [DF] came from either Team Flamingo [FFs] or Dei Victorae [dV]. Both guilds had often played aggressive split builds on Frozen Isle and were friendly rivals. Over time, the guilds suffered inactivity problems as some of their members were unable to play as often. Eventually, when they repeatedly had trouble assembling a full core team to play in their main guild, members from [dV] began running PUG GvGs in a smurf guild called The Igloo Has Melted [emo]. To fill out the PUG, they began inviting [FFs] players, starting with Yue and gradually including others. Both [FFs] and [dV] had similar play styles, so playing together in [emo] was a fun and easy way for players in both guilds to remain active.

After numerous and consistent wins in [emo], they decided to merge the active members from their two guilds into a new one. In addition, they recruited Champ and Umpy from Clan Kgyu [KGYU] after it, too, became inactive. Because none of the players wanted to join the others' guild, they instead chose to start with a clean slate and create Delta Formation. The merger worked especially well because there was not much overlap in the roles people preferred: one guild had primarily frontline players and Rangers, the other solid midline players, and each brought a strong Monk to the newly formed guild.

All officers play with the core team and have a say in guild decisions. Farin was chosen as guild leader, though he acts more as a figurehead. He was selected for this role primarily because he is the most levelheaded of the players and the least likely to get overly upset or do anything rash.
