Environment in a PvP guild?


5 posts in this topic

Posted

So a friend and I got into a discussion the other day and we decided to take it to the forums because we wanted to get a bigger pool of people to hear back from. We basically were going over environments in pvp guilds and how they can vary, and we both disagree on what we think most active pvpers want. I'm in a small guild with a few friends on the Uno server and when making our guild we wanted the close knit pvp group, like a squad? We want to have access to all the pvp aspects of the game and of course be a tough group to beat. We want to be respectable and not toxic assholes who constantly grief people for no reason, obviously fighting over grind spots n such is something you have to do, but I think you can fight for a spot and not be a ----- about it. My friend believes its impossible to have a hardcore pvp guild and still be a respectable guild, where I disagree....   I expect to get a lot of troll responses to this post, but I wanted to ask generally what type of pvp guild environment do you look for as a player? One that is the unrestricted group of do-whatever-you-want-roll-everyone-in-your-way type of guild OR a more disciplined militant style pvp guild that functions on some sort of moral code? Do you think its possible to run a pvp guild in this way? and in the case of a merger down the road for my guild (because I realize that most smaller guilds are having trouble recruiting and you need numbers to participate in node wars) what do you think about some of the top hard core pvp guilds on the Uno server?

 

TLDR version: What environment as a pvp player do you look for in a pvp guild (military vs free-for-all)? Do you think its possible for a PvP guild to be respected (pvp and not be viewed as douchebags)? And what is the general view of the top PvP guilds on the Uno server do they have a good or bad reputation in case my guild merges with one down the line?

 

Thanks for reading!

The thing is, for average to large sized PvP guilds, you can't control every member's behavior. There will always be a handful of Dbags that will not act the way you want them to when you're not baby sitting them. That means your guild can't have the 100% crystal clear image of being "noble" or favorable to all other guilds. When you contest and fight over a grind spot, no matter what you say to the ones you're pushing out, they will immediately think you're a sh*t guild for doing that.

You're being too naiive, your friend is just trying to tell it to you how it really is. A small group of say, 5 friends, will get the sh*t kicked out of them vs a large overly geared, high leveled big pvp guild. And no matter what that guild says to you, you guys will think they're asshats for pushing you out of a grind spot. 

The only way to be "respected" as a guild, is to have strong members who can hold their own ground in a fight. It'll make other people think twice about messing with your guild. Maybe you might have a code on conduct to not trash talk, but that still won't stop the other people from thinking negatively about your guild. 

In short, you're wrong, your friend is right. No matter what you do in PvP, you're also a Dbag.

Thanks for the feed back! Yeah I realize what I'm going for is probably impossible because no matter what, you'll always be viewed as an asshat by somebody. Looking at the top PvP guilds on Uno currently, Warrior Poets, BlackRose, and Barcode, each seems to have their own style. I've had both good and bad experiences with members from all three guilds, but I tend to judge the guild as a whole based on the leadership, and not those select members.

Its in the eye of the beholder really. 

In The guild i help manage,Oldskool on alustin, we strive for the No drama No nonsense approach to pvp. It is a clear rule within our guild that we do not indulge in trash talking in chat (you can say all the shit you want on ts, but stay out of Channel, server, and say chat). This has been quite succesful for us, but obviously there will always be that one or two people Who step out of line and we instantly take hand of such matters. 

However even if we strive to dothis there will always be someone from the outside Who sees us as asshats but as long as you dont respond to it and ignore it it doesnt matter imo

Yeah, thats how I was suggesting we run our guild. I know BlackRose subscribes to that, or at least makes an effort to, and from what I've seen it seems to work pretty well.
