They See We Rollin’

So, our second Guild War today, and our first Fortress Feud! As expected, we wiped the floor with the competition in Fortress Feud, only retreating in the third round out of pity:

So congratsย  everyone! Awesome rewards from FF ๐Ÿ™‚

Guild Wars we’re gonna come in second. I know, I know, we all want first. If I can try to explain what happened:

In order to qualify for Fortress Feud, we needed to get to a certain might by the end of Friday. This forced us to do a mad recruiting dash (we never poached anyone! all new members on Friday came from in game chat!) with little concern for quality. Unfortunately, when the rest of our friends joined Saturday, along with a few high might newcomers, our might skyrocketed to rank 602. We weren’t ready for that, so getting a close second place is a great result. Tomorrow we will look at our detailed results and restructure accordingly – 0s and HBM bases during guild wars is not acceptable, sorry!

Finally, I’d just like to quickly address the negativity directed our way and say for the record that AFAIK, none of our people “poached” members from other guilds, nor did any of us encourage anyone to leave a guild, during guild wars or otherwise. The secret of our recruiting success has more to do with hard work (in in-game chat) and humility on our part – people like us because we are likeable ๐Ÿ™‚ Our guild has only a loose power structure; we add core members to admin and make decisions as a group. There is no “follow the rules or GTFO” here!

It’s been a long week, so I may be rambling ๐Ÿ™‚ good night and thanks everyone for making this guild such a great experience!

Hail, Hail, the Gang’s All Here!

Good morning (afternoon, evening, night) fellow clashers! Woke up this morning to find all our friends have finally joined our expedition, and we’ve broken into the top 1k guilds after less than a week!

Today is Fortress Feud registration day, and we’re all excited to see the magic in action tomorrow as we continue on our way towards world domination cheeky nandos even more fun!

Sing it with me:

Come, friends, who plough the sea
Truce to navigation
Take another station
Let’s vary piracy
With a little burglary

Hail, hail, the gang’s all here
What the heck do we care
What the heck do we care
Hail, hail, the gang’s all here
What the heck do we care now
ย 

Undefeated!

As predicted, we killed it in Guild Wars yesterday, almost doubling the score of the 2nd place guild! Well done team!

Through some diligent (but wholesome) recruiting work, we have also managed to score a spot in the top 1500 guilds after less than five days of existence, which means we are guaranteed to be eligible for Fortress Feud on Sunday! Well done, well done!

Onward and Upward!

Another milestone reached! Guild Hub Level 9! Woohoo!

Today is our first guild war as a guild and we’re already leaving the competition in the dust with an unbeatable 1st place lead! It’s great to see our new members performing so well, even as our core members continue to work together as a team of pure awesomeness!

Last night was also our first torch battle and, thanks to our smurfs, we had no problem securing max torch rewards even while our European members slept soundly ๐Ÿ™‚

Next stop, Fortress Feud! As a fellow explorer once said, we do these things “not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win!”

P.S. Thanks, Mom!

Torches and Guild Wars!

We did it! Our Guild Hub is at level 8 thanks to everyone’s chipping in to get our new guild off the ground. Once the dust settled this morning, we have enough might to qualify for both torch battle and guild wars! Next goal is to qualify for Fortress Feud, which may be tough… if not this Sunday then we’ll get there for the next one! Thanks everyone for working together to make this guild a success!
