Dennis: I told you, we're an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to be a sort of executive officer for the week...
King Arthur: Yes...
Dennis: ...but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting...
King Arthur: Yes I see...
Dennis: ...by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs...
King Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: ...but by a two thirds majority in the case of...
King Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
Woman: Order, eh? Who does he think he is?
It’s been about a month since our transfer to Sanctum of
Rall and therefore probably a good time to reflect on the move and discuss our
guild in general. First of all, I
recognize that we lost some good people in the move. That is unfortunate, but we would have lost
more if we didn’t decide to move. We
would have lost the guild.
I believe that our move to Sanctum of Rall was a good
choice. SoR has been moving between #5
and #6 in the overall server rankings and our World versus World battles
have been fierce and exciting. We have
been up against some HUGE guilds on the other servers like PRX and FOE. Many of those battles were defeats by the
blunt trauma from superior numbers, but despite the zerg rushes we had to
endure, we were also very successful.
I believe that we have established ourselves as the special
forces of Sanctum of Rall. We strike
fast and move on. We are usually the tip
of the sword and don’t like the zerg.
Field commanders from other guilds are starting to notice. We are being sent to react quickly and get
results. I like this role. I also like the fact that we are making a
name for ourselves as a fiercely competent guild.
For many of these reasons, I believe that we should remain
on SoR. We are not the top server, but
we are a feisty competitor. We don’t lie
down and roll over. The mega-zerg guilds
won’t be able to keep that up for long.
There is no skill in the zerg and we have proven that they can be
defeated by a smaller, well organized force. Our fights are fun and require intelligence to
succeed. That is why I think that we
should stay on SoR, but that’s my opinion.
I would like to hear your opinions
on this (points to the comment button above).
Last night (11/10/12) we did a lot in WvW. First of all, with the change back to
Standard Time, the server change over happened at 7 pm EST. Even so, we managed to field two groups in
the SoR Borderlands. It was a hard
fight, but by the time the majority of us logged (around midnight), we were
able to take back the Garrison and the rest of the north side of the map,
despite a huge push by the PRX guild (HUGE member base).
Our guild attacked the battlefield with professionalism and
a high degree of competency. At one
point while we were all logged in on the public TS3 server, we decided to move
down to another channel to better coordinate our guild groups. The key point here is that leaders from other
guilds came down to our channel to discuss strategy ... and then stayed there because
we were organized and understood the battlefield.
Well done Ravens!!
