    Default Ideas

    Evening all.

    Just to briefly introduce myself - name's Alex / Southpaw, ingame handle's Bestian Trueflight. I'm 20, from England and got about 3-4 years of GW under my belt. I'm back playing after a spell of inactivity brought on from infighting in my previous guild, so I'm a bit rusty, but looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

    I had a few ideas as to how to get this community achieving what it wants - feel free to shoot them down or tell me if they're already going, however.

    Beginners' Night
    Rusty. Out of practice. Need to relearn the ropes. Call it what you like, but frankly I suck royally at PvP these days; and I'm probably not the only one who's been lured back by the Hall of Monuments rewards to find all the skills work differently and they're frankly awful at PvP. So in my opinion a refresher course / beginners' night might be a good idea. Schedule a day and time, spread the word in and out of game, maybe even nag the powers that be into putting it on the calendar sidebar in the magazine itself (page 80 in last month's PCGUK). See how many we get.

    Regular PvP nights

    Pick an appropriate night, stick it on the forum for sign-ups, field multiple teams if necessary. We could have it on a different night each week, it doesn't really matter - but just a date and time might help get members online and involved.

    Trade Sub-Forum
    Dunno about you guys, but I've got holiday crap coming out of my ears and clogging up my storage. I could sell it to some random fellow in Kamadan, but I'd much rather offload it on a guildmate who's going for the relevant title. Same goes for my item upgrade pane, my duplicate minipets, and so on. A trade sub-forum would mean we could sort this sort of thing out while offline, which would be useful as we're an intercontinental guild.

    I've probably got more ideas floating around, but that's all that springs to mind. Sorry I'm being so forward after just joining, I'm simply excited.

    See ya ingame,

    ~Alex

    All of the above are great ideas and I'm in favour of all of them.

    The beginner's night is an especially good idea, I've owned the game for about three years now and never even tried PvP. Something like this would be great for me to try it out.

    I will look into it that these are put into motion. The only thing that might take some time is the sub-forum as its something I wish to do in one big go when the community is bigger. With the promotion in Feb's issue this shouldn't take long.

    I love idea's guys so keep them coming, don't be afraid to put forward stuff!

    I like these ideas a lot and would be more than willing to help get them going.

    I've never tried any form of organised PvP much, but I have quite a bit of experience in Random Arenas and all the Luxon/Kurzik PvP arenas (AB, Jade Quarry and Fort Aspenwood) and would certainly be willing to help out / take part in some sort of Beginners' Night
