Don't get me wrong there are still loads of active players around and the new updates have helped to keep the player base up.
The best times of guild wars were those days when you could log in and find a party of 8 people for almost any quest within minutes.
I was thinking that maybe we should focus on helping people complete those very hard missions, playing the new content and generally just having fun.
Hi Red Leader Zala, I do agree with you. We are dealing with a game that is entering its final stages before it's sequel arrives. Having said that ArenaNet have mentioned that they intend to run both concurrently there will at least in the mid-term be a GW1.
The main focus of the guild when it was formed was to prepare members for GW2 by helping them rank up their titles to get the best experience possible in GW2 when we all make the move to it. I'm still interested in that goal. The real issue revolves around interest. Some people have maxed out some titles and aren't particularly interested in re-doing or helping out with other people who need the same. I pretty much don't care and always enjoy a good Guild Party, from my perspective the longer the mission the better. There hasn't been a guild party in months.
I'd like to see the guild get into Z Missions, Vanquishes and HM missions these are great ways to get titles. I'd also like to start some dungeon running and get people's EotN titles ranked up too. But, the best way to achieve that is to not care too much about what we have/have not already got, but to work together to improve the situation for all the members. Splitting time between GW1 and 2 is not really an option for most people and it will be even harder to get those last few titles once GW2 hits the shelves. Really the level of interest is up to the guilds members, but I am interested.
Those are just my thoughts.
