  1. KarmaBum added a post in a topic Three Players Looking For A Home (Edan)   

    Hey, @Lionhardt.   Feel free to check out AKS.  We seem to hit a good number of your bullet-points up there, though we use Mumble instead of Ventrilo.
    Aureus Knights (AKS) traces its roots back to UO in 1997, with a formal founding 2006.  We're normally active in several games at once, and BDO is one of the chapters we're supporting!
    Our BDO chapter has been running since the game's release, building on a solid core of like-minded gamers.  We've been adding to our membership slowly but steadily, looking for friendly, low-key people who enjoy the game and get along well with our guild as a whole.
    We...
    ...are a well-run, well-established, and fun-focused guild...welcome players who participate in all aspects of the game - PvX, crafting, trading, gathering, all of it...support our members with an active forum, Mumble, and Slack chat to stay in touch and coordinate...are on the Edan server, yay!If you're interested, you can check us out at http://www.aureusknights.com, use our official recruiting thread on these forums at http://forum.blackdesertonline.com/index.php?/topic/49675-aureus-knights-edan-server-pvx-well-run-well-established-and-fun-focused/, or send me a whisper in-game (family name KarmaBum, most common character name Gweny).
    Hope to see you around!

  7. KarmaBum added a post in a topic Looking for a completely life skill based guild   

    Hey there, @Cobbles.  We're still buying up guild points, having lately shifted into the life skills category.  I gotta say, most of our really active members probably spend more time grinding life skills than anything else, so you're welcome to give us a looksee.

  8. KarmaBum added a post in a topic Why is Recruiting so difficult?   

    I can't speak to the "freshly made guild" part, but I can - as the primary point of recruitment - speak to the difficulty of getting people to join a guild in this game vs. others.  Honestly, I don't see it as all that much different from recruiting for any other game.
    If I toss out 10 "hey, come join us!" posts, one or two of them will actually reach out to me.  That's about on par with other titles for which I've done guild recruiting.
    My best suggestions: Be proactive, be realistic, and be honest.
    Proactive: I check the BDO Guilds forum at least twice a day.  I skim every single "looking for guild" post that comes up for my server (and sometimes for other servers, because really new people often aren't invested enough to care if they quit a toon to change servers).  If the person seems like a good fit for my guild, I put my post out there for them.  Either I quote their original post or I tag them with an @mention to help draw attention to my post.  I usually address any salient points in their post (e.g., they say they want TeamSpeak but we use Mumble), then I drop an ad that has details about our guild (website, a little bit of guild history, a taste of our philosophy, and why I feel like we're a good fit for them specifically).  If they ignore my post, I move on without further contact; if they reply, I will usually send them a whisper in-game.  I follow this same general procedure on the BDOGuilds Reddit.  I actually don't bother spamming the general chat, but that's just me; you may find it useful.Realistic: Probably 90% of the people at whom you post are going to ignore your comment entirely.  Of the ones that get back to you... some won't work out for one reason or another, either you just aren't the right fit or you never manage to find them online in the game.  Maybe 1-2 out of 10 will actually join your guild, and - out of those - about 10% will ultimately wind up taking the hit and leaving before they're really invested.  "Accuracy by volume" is the name of the game: just keep plugging away at every person that seems like they might fit in with your guild.  After all, that 10th person might be the awesome guildmate you've always been hoping to find!Honest: Don't sell your guild as bigger than it is, more active than it is, more (or less) hard-core than it is.  If you're a new guild, your selling point is probably that people can be in on the ground-floor and help shape the feel of the community.  If you pimp your guild as HARD-CORE SUPER-ACTIVE 1337SAUCE, and people join based on that?  They're just gonna leave pissed, and you'll develop a bad reputation.  There are people out there that want to help make your guild awesome by joining when it's new.  Find them!tl;dr - Don't give up!

  12. KarmaBum added a post in a topic New Forum Rules [ Bumping Topic's]   

    I don't think a 48-hour window is all that ridiculous, personally.  You can still reply to your own thread, as long as you have something new to add.  Yes, people will be required to think of more to say than just "bump," but that's a good thing. \o/
    Personally, I don't think this will accomplish what the mods want it to (ending the monopoly of the front page of the forums by a handful of spammy guilds), but at least it shows that they realize that there's a problem.

    @Sakura sama desu kun chan: We have no requirements about using our voice chat.  Like a lot of guilds, we do find the in-game chat (especially with the lack of timestamp) to be a little clunky, and we often communicate, so we supplement it using Slack, but we don't require people to join external chat methods.

    Our BDO chapter has been running since the game's release, with our officers taking time to make sure we understand the mechanics of the game before we began heavily recruiting.  With that said, now that we feel the game has staying power (not just another flash in the pan game), we've begun looking to expand our membership by bringing in like-minded gamers.
