    Here's the real question: what should our emblem be?

    I saw a crab, a tree, or a unicorn. Trying to think of something that would fit PA.

    Gotta be a claw shrimp.

    I'm preferential to dragons myself... but I'm sure we'll think of something cool. Perhaps we can discuss it on Friday when I'm online and the officers and I can change it. I'm pretty sure quite a few of us researched guild upgrades of various kinds last BWE.

    You can rotate the background and emblem? Awesome. It would be cool if you could have your own personal emblem, but I won't mind if it's only a guild-wide thing.

    Anyway, I'm going to make a list of people who will be online this weekend that want to be in the overflow guild; if you plan on joining, go ahead and send me a PM with your character name. If you haven't made one yet, or forgot the name of your character you can send me a PM with your user ID instead and I'll see if I can invite you using that. You couldn't use user IDs to invite people last weekend, but it's entirely possible that they changed it this weekend. Once the guild is set up I'll start sending out invites.

    Don't worry, I'll whip a new one up tomorrow when I get home from work. We should be able to hang on until then at least, then explode all over the next thread.

    Here's an awesome emblem from GW1 (lots of the same emblems are being used in GW2).

    That's fine. Have we decided a name for the guild yet?

    I was going to spin a wheel of PA guild names and go with that. I was thinking either a tribute to the GW1 guild and going with Kansas City Hotsteppers or going with The Six Mouths.

    You're leader though so you can pick. It's an overflow on a beta weekend so don't put too much thought into it as long as it's PA related.

    Oh lord please Six Mouths. My favorite guild name evar.

    Not my call sorry. But I do agree with you about the name. I loved that guild for the short time I was in it.

    WuvWuv is always the first thing I do, but the experience thus far has been that other worlds are puny and uncoordinated like unloved kittens. I can only camp their origin gate for so long before I go off to find something more challenging.

    what a happy day it is
  • CyrondinCyrondin I bring the sick beats on you, brother Chicago, ILRegistered User regular
    I can't wait for wuvwuv. Daoc is my first mmo and no pvp system came close. I never got Into wows Pvp and Astor pvp fizzled at Max level. Can't wait for the wave of men to killed.

    Yes, but it was more because it was also the unofficial Oceania Server. Our server, Fort Aspenwood, is the secondary Goon server since SoS got filled.

    I remember the one time we lost, it was because we were all asleep when SoS took a huge lead (if I remember correctly), and then WuvWuv broke before we could take it back! Still, no excuses. Let's take first this weekend!

    Edit: Records and rankings reset for this weekend? BLASPHEMY!

    I was half thinking we should switch servers as a guild to one of the new servers on friday. What do you guys think?

    I don't think there's any reason to do so unless we run into issues.

  • DraygoDraygo Registered User regular
    I know we ran into issues last BWE with full servers. The potential is there, more people join the beta, flood each of the servers with more people such that their status will get to 'full' more often. Meaning the servers that were availible last BWE are at risk of being over-filled at primetime.

    Yeah, but I think we'll run into more issues by switching servers. Particularly when everyone is already on Fort Aspenwood, aside from some new people. Having everyone switch is a big endeavor.

    Apart from WvW, it doesn't really matter if the server is full, thanks to overflow.

    With such a large number of people, I think switching servers will have to wait til release, if we switch at all. Perhaps if it is a big problem this weekend we can plan well in advance to do a server switch for BWE3.

    No it does matter, there is a 'full' state on the servers. What you are supposed to do when your server is full is guest on another server. Guesting wasnt implemented last bwe. So we can have a potential problem here.

  • GeodGeod swim, swim, hungryRegistered User regular
    Plus, at this point, I like our server. We have people that are good and active at WvW on it, and we can't carry a whole server ourselves :)

    Yeah, that'll just lead to lots of people being stuck on Fort Aspenwood after the free transfers go down and we'll get all splintered.

    Want to find me on a gaming service? I'm SwashbucklerXX everywhere.
  • DraygoDraygo Registered User regular
    I am slightly worried about it though. If I see full before primetime on friday i'm going to recommend switching.

  • TopiaTopia Registered User regular
    Alright, so I'm not playing this weekend.

    My character, Holton, can be removed from guild to make room for someone else.

    Can you not log-in if it is "full"?

    Or does it mean you can't select it at as a home world if you are new?

    The second I believe. First should never be an issue.

  • EnigEnig a.k.a. Ansatz Registered User regular
    edited June 2012
    If it is based on number of accounts tied to that server, wouldn't it just say "full" all the time?

    I don't think there is any restriction for selecting or logging in, but I could be wrong. Of course, the more population the more time spent in overflow shards, and the more likely there are queues for WvW though.

    We can definitely consider moving for BWE3 if it is a problem this weekend, but I just don't see it being possible to do smoothly on Friday afternoon/evening with no warning.
