<Grind>
DISBANDED

288d47f5d3349931ba0319551da448fe.jpg


Message/ending words from Caph in regards to Grind's era.
Grind has been during it's period a full out powerhouse with some of the strongest players in BDO Europe. We've achieved amazing results but the official era of Grind has ended as of the 27th August. The guild is as of now, no longer active and are currently disbanding. Incentives will be paid out until the guild funds are depleted and thereafter the guild will either be disbanded or name changed and turned into a small guilds for those who wants to stay with. The guild was being run by ThePowersthatB with his officers Excaiibur, Mytoko, Appic and Nuts/Bowstrings during its last few weeks of its existence. The guild was intended to take on a new name and aim to achieve as much as they possibly can but have now decided to no longer continue and instead, disband. As such this thread's recruitment info will be hidden under "spoilers" and remain as a memory for all the guilds participants and rivals.

I wish to thank everyone that has been a part of the guild as well as those who've fought against/with us honorably throughout the period of BDO. I'm personally leaving the game to focus on my studies in order to finish a double bachelor this year. Our discord will retain it's form and possibly be used in future games if there's anything a bunch of our members decides to play together. 

As of that, a big thanks to everyone involved who've made BDO extremely enjoyable even through its bumps along the way. I hope that those of you who continue to enjoy the game can do it fully and those of you who don't, find happiness in whatever else you pursuit!

Sincerely,
Caph

Previous recruitment info



What we are looking for?
We are looking for highly skilled, exceptional players to be part of one of the top PVP guilds, aiming to own castles and take leading spots on server ranks. 
Even though we aim at a leading position, we have a laid back attitude to life - hate and drama has no place here. We also want to create a 
collaborating team that help each other, where none is treated as better than another as the game is team-oriented and so is our mindset.
 

Background information - Written by Merevin
Our core players came from the Korean version of the game. They all have deep knowledge about the game continuously share updated information to all our members.
I was playing the Korean version since the beginning of OBT and during my time in the KR version, I have been in various guilds such as Onggi and Gatekeeper - keeping up with the Korean players in gear and pvp achievements. After my 2 western guilds, I joined one of the top korean guilds <Weaponstone> and competed against the other top 10 guilds for castles and guild wars.
Multiple people from Grind/GrLnd are constantly keeping up to date with information shared through Inven (korean information website) and the official websites, so we are able to provide all the important information that can be very useful for our version of the game.

About us
 High performance, highly organised guild who's expecting elite-tier performance from our members.
Continuously proven our worth in the many GvG's we've had till this date and intend to keep it at that level.
Aiming to win sieges and keep up high activity.
 Highly motivated and active people who play continuously but with and laid-back attitude and a good ability to enjoy the game.
 Multiple active officers who deals with everyday activities aswell as organisational management.
 Multiple highly active and dedicated raid leaders who all have experience in large scale leading.
We do not intend to create any alliances.


Achievements as a guild
Our guild was formed on the EU alpha server where we were on the top of the ranks both in gear as well as levels.
We had lot of fun in CBT1 and showed quite a big number of players and glad to say we secured a spot among best guilds in EU as far as CBT1 went.
Some pictures of us below.

Calpheon siege winner third week 08/06

No screenshots this week so will do just a short summary of what happened.

Serendia: 6 of our people versus 40+ of Divium. We instantly left this and put only a few people there incase it was some small 10 man guild that would attack us.
Mediah: We fought against Casuals 30+ and Harmonys 60-70+ with our 70 people and had quite a good fun of PvP for 1hour. We got Casuals tent down to 80% and 3 recovery centers down. Our base under pressure aswell since we semi-ignored defense because we knew we had limited time at Mediah due to the pressure at Calpheon.
Calpheon: Zero + Casual + Ancestrall. First 20 min Zer0 and Ancestrall fought with eachother for some time for the fun PvP and we took the oppurtunity to destroy casuals base with the 18 people we had at Calpheon. After about 20min however, both Zer0 and Ancestral started to push our base, as you can see here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-RfpabjDDg
A bit much handholding going on and once they were getting close to destroying our second gate at Calpheon, we sadly had to go back to Calpheon and defend and leave the fun PvP going on at Mediah. We Got to Calpheon and killed Zer0 and Ancestral within 40min approx.

And that's the summary of our fight. We were approx 70 people Mediah, 18 Calpheon and 6 at Serendia. These 6 at Serendia joined in at Mediah after about 20minutes (due to channel change and travel time).

Valencia and Mediah siege winner sixth week 08/27 

The siege this week was a bit different. Multiple guilds organised an temporary alliance to stop Grind's powerhouse from controlling more regions than we already did. This was identified through mutually shared guild logos in form of the old Futilez logo "FU" spread amongst different guilds. Calpheon had 5 tents built, Valencia 4, Balenos 5 and Mediah 1. We happily gave up Balenos to the smaller sized guilds so they could enjoy their fighting there. Mediah was uncontested and a free victory for us. Calpheon we defended against Asura, Millenium, High_Dawn and Zer0 for about 1hour with 18 people untill we decided to focus Valencia. At Valencia we fought Varshen, Metalleak and Casuals ~94 members with our 72. One hour into the fight, we had taken down Varshen and Metalleak and did at this time summon our 18 in Calpheon to focus down Casual. We ended up victorious and concluded with 2 regions this siege as well.

Hey Merevin. I'd like to join too if its possible. Im willing to dedicate a big chunk of my time to this game but still have a life. You know, just play and chill no need to rush to endgame since we all get there at some point. I cannot guarantee that i can farm for the guild 24/7/365 but i can certainly come online min. 3 - 4 days a week. Can join voip too.

A huge vouch for Merevin. He has a ton of in-game time clocked as well as a vast knowledge of how Black Desert actually works. One of the few players I'd sincerely tell new player's they're well off sticking with. Wish you all the best of luck on the EU server.

I won't be on EU, but best of luck to Merevin and Grind. Merevin and I go back to the beginning of BDO, both as enemies and as friends, and he knows his stuff. Great guy, cool to hang out with, good PvPer, and one hell of a grinder.
