Advertising For Your MMORPG Guild

Guild recruiters cannot be shy. Post in recruiting forums, erect a guild Web site, use in game recruiting tools, such as those in EQ2, these activities all promote your guild and you probably should avail yourself of them. However the fastest, cheapest, easiest most effective way to get new members for your guild is to simply ask in a general chat channel. Before You Hit the Chat Channels You Need to Know… …what benefit people will receive by joining your guild and at what cost? Do you provide help with grouping? Do you help people level? Are you a PvP guild? If so what kind of PvP guild? If you provide groups for members is joining guild groups required? If you help people level, is helping other members required? If you are an MMORPG PvP guild, does this mean you don’t do content or that you do organized battlegrounds? Once you know the major benefit of joining your guild, create your message around that. Know the cost however, because you’ll need new members to understand that if you want to retain them…more about that in my next article for PlayerVox. To construct your message take the big focus on your major benefit and combine it with one of two possible actions you want the interested party to take: 1. PST for membership info. Contact you immediately in (PST for Please Send Tell is fairly universal). Be prepared to answer questions and potentially talk to multiple people at the same time. I like to either use a text file to cut and paste common answers, or setup macros when available. 2. URL. Save yourself a lot of typing by sending people to a special recruiting page setup in advance. Lazy people won’t take the time to go look however, so if you are zerg recruiting, don’t use this method. Using a Web page is ideal if there is a lot of information for potential members to consider. * Present your guild as active and up-to-date. Do NOT send potentials to your inactive guild forums or glommed together site for info. Instead create a special page just for potential new recruits. * Get the easiest URL possible. Example: “s1.guildcafe.com” is the domain name I use for the Section One guild. * Always use the http:// so that people understand it is a web site you want them to look at. Recruiting Message Samples Helper PvE guild: Learn the ropes and level fast with XYZ guild. PST for membership info. Guild with funny people: Laugh your way to level 50 with XYZ guild. Casual players welcome. PST for membership info. Guild with serious PvErs: XYZ guild seeks pro-PvE members. Do dungeons right with us. Ventrilo required. PST for membership info. End game looters: The PvE veterans of XYZ raid guild LFM for teamwork and achieving long term goals. http://www.blahblah.com Adult social guild: Like to play and chat? Join the lively world of XYZ guild on Ventrilo. http://www.blahblah.com Not kid friendly. Crafting guild: Attention crafters: Join with other crafters in XYZ guild to build an economic powerhouse and rule the server. PST for more info. Player-killing guild: Join for the Rep. Stay for the people who’d rather fight than switch. RPK all the way. PST for membership info. Advertise, but don’t spam Some old fashioned net-etiquette should be employed while advertising in chat channels: * Use appropriate channels. Find out what channels are acceptable for guild recruiting. It’s different in every game. For instance, in Guild Wars, one uses the “all” channel. In some MMORPGs the regional chat channels are acceptable. Some games have special recruiting channels. * Keep it short and sweet. Don’t attempt to explain every membership detail in your message. Things scroll away fast and people don’t have time to deal with long text—heck, they don’t even read quest descriptions most of the time! More on this later. * Don’t spam. The reason you repeat your message is to give busy people another chance to read it as well present yourself to new people who haven’t seen it. It is not to bore and aggravate people with your endless droning of e-garbage. o How often you repeat your message is game dependent. In games like WoW, EQ2 and Vanguard, the number of new people coming into and going out of a channel is small, so repeat sparingly. Observe how frequently others repeat and repeat less than they do. If you get complaints, reduce your frequency even more. Being perceived as spam will get you on people’s ignore-list. o In Guild Wars where people hop in and out of districts constantly, your best bet is to move around from place to place, repeat your message once per district then move on, repeating your cycle every five minutes or so. * Change it up. Vary your message from time to time, test new messages, be clever, entertain. Boring messages equates to a boring guild. Advertise eloquently… …or at least avoid looking stupid: * DON’T USE ALL CAPS. * Do not load up your message with **l337** symbols and other #$%^& crap. Your potential recruits don’t have time or desire to decipher, so just use plain English. * Stay away from over-used terms so ubiquitous that they are now meaningless. Ever seen anyone advertising for unfriendly, immature and inactive members? Almost all guilds are friendly, mature and active, so don’t use up precious space talking about it. * Use goood speeling. You may not care about every day chat spelling and grammar, but nothing makes you look more like a stupid n00b than spamming the same error over and over. Check it first then store it in a macro or text file. People want to join guilds that are active. They like to be able to login and find things are happening. One of the best things to do recruiting-wise is put together PUGs, then pitch guild membership to the better players. You can take this idea a step further by organizing server events and advertising them in spam. Depending on how much creativity the game supports you can do a lot. Character weddings, PvP king of the hill events, PvP tournaments, PvE and PvP raids, crafting fairs, scavenger hunts, races and costume contests are all popular. Worst Guild Recruiting Spam Ever XYZ GUILD RECUTING friendly active players. All levels, races, classses and ages. Mature PvE and PvP. Have hall and cape. ˆ-ˆ This is a pretty typical zerg guild spam—hard to read, packed full of errors and easy to ignore. It attempts to attract people by sounding friendly, but undermines itself by trying to be all things to all people—which equates to nothing for nobody. If you want to offer zillions of players a temporary spot in your revolving door clan, use this ad. (The “have hall and cape” is a Guild Wars thing. Since every guild has those, it amazes me that people even mention it. If they advertised a guild hall with all perks or silver cape that would be different.) XYZ guild looking for members. 50 gold paid on joining. Why not just say, “attention leeches, come get 50gp then leave me for another guild” If you are this desperate for members, consider calling it quits and joining an established guild. UberAwesome guild looking for members. Raiding right now, come get your endgame loot! This ad isn’t much better than the previous one. It’s just another opportunity for people to leech off your generosity. Inviting people to join your raids is a good way to impress people, but it’s best to keep those opportunities and your recruiting separate. Conclusion Don’t be shy! Speak up and use chat to let people know that you’re out there. Be wise with your messages, don’t abuse it, and you’ll be rewarded with plenty of interest.

Other features of guild hosting allows for keeping your guild organized with calendars, tracking of events, and options for recruiting into your particular gaming guild. Through guild hosting programs gamers can also share and keep up with each other’s accomplishments through access to specialized news and announcements, a gallery of images, and information on progress.

The Wine Guild

The Guild was governed by a council of six: two ecclesiastics, two municipal representatives, and two wine-growers. These met before and after the vintage to fix the price of grapes and that of the new must; as far as it is possible to calculate such things, based on the relative cost of living then and now, these prices were more than double those of today. When the West Indies fleet was provisioned with wine, this was arranged by a quota system, rather than by free competition. Worst of all, merchants were forbidden to accumulate large stocks; wine was therefore not matured long enough, and trade was lost because lack of stock caused delay in preparing the blends and drink coasters (http://www.thirstycoasters.com/servlet/-strse-Name-Drops/Categories) for shipment. The idea behind this extraordinary regulation was that such wine stores would divert profits from the hands of the growers into those of merchants, and that it would encourage speculation. The only large stores of old wine were in the possession of the Church and in a few private cellars. These restrictions aimed at making the trade easy and profitable with a minimum of effort and competition, but in fact they had the opposite effect, and sherry shippers were unable to compete with wines grown elsewhere. Malaga, for instance, exported a rich, dessert wine not unlike sherry, and it became popular in Britain under the name of Mountain. This captured much of the available market for Spanish wines, and exports from Malaga were greater than those from either Cadiz or Sanlucar. The restrictions of the Gremio were opposed by a number of merchants, notably by Juan Haurie. There was a lawsuit, and much acrimonious wrangling, not all of which was concerned with wine: the deputies were accused of spending too much on fireworks for the annual feast of San Gines, and on presents of chocolate and cocktails (http://www.thirstycoasters.com/servlet/-strse-Seasonal/Categories). But despite all the efforts of its opponents, the Guild continued until it was dissolved by Royal proclamation in 1834, after 101 years of disastrous existence. By 1754, owing to the poor state of trade, there were only nine sherry shippers left in Jerez, and it is doubtful whether more than one of them was English. The solitary Englishman was John Brickdale, who was said to be a Freemason, in spite of which he was apparently on good terms with the local ecclesiastics. He was also a supporter of the church of St George at Sanlucar, though this does not necessarily mean he was a Catholic: perhaps he supported it simply because he was English. Other English merchants, however, were trading in Cadiz and one of them at least—Henry Pickering—was also interested in exporting wine. In 1785, a Catholic family of Gordons arrived from Scotland and, by the turn of the century, they had become prominent in the wine frade. Haurie accumulated a number of British assistants at about the same time. Haurie himself was a refugee from France, and he was joined by kinsmen and fellow-countrymen such as Pemartin, Domecq, and Lacoste, whose work was to do much to revive the sherry and table coaster trade. Other families of French origin still active in the Sherry trade include Lustau, Lacave and Delage. There was also an influx of capital from the Indies, brought back to Andalusia owing to political turmoil in the colonies. Such English merchants as there were lived at Sanlucar, and the most prominent of these was Henry Stonor. As a younger son, he could expect no inheritance and, as a Catholic, no great career lay open to him in Britain. Like many other cadets of his family he chose to seek his fortune in a Catholic country. After finishing his schooling at Douai in 1760, he settled in Cadiz, carrying with him an official copy of his pedigree and arms, obtained from the College of Heralds. After a few years, he married an English wife, Elizabeth Gardiner-Brown, and they settled in Sanlucar where Stonor built up an extensive business as a general merchant. He exported orange and lemon trees to stock the fashionable orangeries, together with broods of Spanish partridges and, of course, sherry. In return, he imported British saddlery and sporting dogs, specializing in greyhounds. One of his four sons took a temporary commission in the Spanish army and created a sensation by visiting his English relations resplendent in his striking uniform. Other English residents in Sanlucar at that time included a Captain David Ferrier, whose precise occupation (if any) is uncertain, but he had a clerk named Gaspar Muclek and a butler named Joseph Colisons. In 1754, thirty-two English residents signed a petition to the Pope, concerning the appointment of a visitor to the church of St George. Probably only a few of these were connected with the wine trade. S Published at: https://www.isnare.com/?aid=321553&ca=Food+and+Drinks

What Is Guild Wars?

Massively multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPG) are a new genre of computer games which are proving hugely popular around the world. Client software is installed on your PC, and this lets you connect to the game’s servers. Joined thousands – even millions – of other players online, you are no longer restricted to just playing through a storyline by yourself. MMORPGs expand the world of role playing games, allowing players the freedom to make their own storylines, and prove their skill not just against computer controlled opponents (NPCs) but also each other. Usually MMORPGs like World of Warcraft have a monthly subscription fee, on top of the initial fee required to purchase the game client. Guild Wars from ArenaNet does away with these subscription fees. Once you have bought the software, installed it, and created an account to log in to the game, everything is free. This gives players the freedom to play Guild Wars as little or as often as they want. The lack of a monthly fee is a big bonus. Copies of the game can be picked up very cheaply via online retailers, making Guild Wars an inexpensive and fun introduction to the world of online role playing games. Each character has a relatively low level cap of level 20. This is because Guild Wars is based more on skill rather than how far you have progressed in the game or what items your character has. Combined with the lack of a subscription fee, this has made Guild Wars very popular with casual gamers. The developer, ArenaNet, arranges regular tournaments and ladders, allowing individual players and even whole Guilds to pit their skills against each other. These tournaments not only provide in-game rewards to players, but ArenaNet also provide very generous cash prizes for the winners, and top placed players and teams. There are three campaigns – Prophecies, Factions and Nightfall. Each of these has their own unique characters, skills and items, along with the core characters and skills which are available in all campaigns. Each can be played as a standalone title, or registered with one account, allowing players to move their characters between the three storylines. Prophecies alone has over 30 character/profession combinations, and more than 200 quests available through the storyline. Factions continues the initial storyline, moving events to a new continent. Nightfall, the third campaign, moves the action to an unexplored part of Tyria, and brings events in the main storyline to a climax. Eye of the North is the game’s first true expansion, requiring one of the campaigns to be installed first. Aimed at established players, there are no new professions or characters available. Eye of the North introduces some new features which link the existing titles to the forthcoming sequel. The beta for Guild Wars 2, starting in 2008, is sure to have a huge take-up. Since it’s release in April 2005, Guild Wars has sold over 4 million copies, and won numerous awards. With such a large established player base, as well as regular tournaments for cash prizes, the game is going still going strong.

New Gameplay Features In Guild Wars: Eye Of The North

One of the most notable features in Eye of the North, the expansion to the successful series of Guild Wars titles from ArenaNet, is the addition of dungeons. Special multi-level instances, dungeons can be played through repeatedly, and offer some unique items, bosses, and even some surprising traps. The Eye of the North maps have been modified slightly from the standard Guild Wars maps. The new dungeons will show up a blurred area, which only becomes clear as you explore your way through the dungeon. Special locations like stairs and resurrection shrines are highlighted on the dungeon map. As an added aide, special dungeon area maps can sometimes be found in dungeons – usually near the entrance to a level. These will instantly reveal the entire dungeon area, as well as highlighting special items like bosses, keys, and some special unique areas to that dungeon. The area maps are usually heavily guarded by monster mobs, but are well worth retrieving. Note that once you have left a dungeon, your knowledge of the levels is reset – when entering again you will be confronted with the same blank spaces on the dungeon map. By talking to some of the faction NPCs you can gain the Dungeon Masters Guide. Each time you complete a dungeon, a page recording your achievement is created in your guide. Once you have completed all the dungeons in Eye of the North you can return your completed guide, in exchange for some significant faction bonuses and gold. Eye of the North also introduces three new mini games. By competing in these you can gain faction Reputation Points, which will help your progression along the new faction related Title Tracks. The mini games also serve to flesh out the storyline, adding background to key characters in the game, and bringing more depth to the expansion’s experience. Polymock is a game invented by the new race, the Asura, and is similar to pokemon. Completing dungeons and quests can gain you unique Polymock pieces, which you can then pit against opponents in the Polymock Tournament. Dwarven boxing is arranged by the utterly mad Kilroy Stonekin. Special items like knuckledusters, as well as boxing specific skills, are handed out, as you beat your way through opponents. Kilroy eggs you on against increasingly tough opponents, until finally you and your party must punch your way through a one level dungeon. Beating up the Stone Summit Dwarves with Kilroy is easily one of the best features of the game – for Prince Rurik! Finally there is the Norn Fighting Tournament, where you progress through one on one combat in the Norn Fighting Arena. Defeat the lesser oponents to come up against the impressive Magni the Bison, a tough Norn opponent who organises the Tournament. This is a great way to unlock some of the unique Heroes which are available in Guild Wars: Eye of the North. Mini games also feature prominently in the many regular festivals that take place in the game. Introducing the mini game concept into the main game plotline has allowed ArenaNet to introduce a number of fun and involving side games which only add to the immersive and enjoyable social experience that Guild Wars has to offer.

How To Develop A Successful World Of Warcraft Guild

Many World of Warcraft players eventually come to a point in their game play where they feel as if they are ready to create a guild. Creating a guild is not for everyone – it takes a lot of work, structure, organization, and patience in order to establish a productive guild. Here, you will discover some great strategies on how to develop a successful World of Warcraft guild. It is important for you to know and understand that this may take a little bit of time to accomplish. In addition to this, you may not always succeed when you try the first time. If this is the case, do not lose your motivation – there is always a way to turn things around in your favor. Establishing your own guild is not a difficult task – the creation is the simple part. However, the process behind guild crafting may prove to be a bit challenging. First, you need to ensure that you have a bit of in-game cash that you can dedicate to the task. Once you have a good bit of funding to back you, you will simply want to find a Guild Master in the game. The cities that have these Guild Masters are as follows: – Thunderbluff – Darnassus – Orgrimmar – Undercity – Ironforge – Stormwind If you are having a difficult time locating these individuals, you will find that there are various guards that are sprinkled throughout the city. Simply click on one of these and then select “Guild Master”. The guard will then inform you of where this individual is, and if you look at your map in the upper right hand corner of your game screen, you will see an arrow. This arrow will point you in the right direction. Simply follow this until you reach your destination. Once you reach the Guild Master, you will want to click on the option that allows you to learn about creating your own guild. All you have to do at this point is select a name that reflects what you want your guild to be called. It is important to create a powerful name if you want a successful guild. Great names like “The Devotees”, “The Distinguished Dynasty”, and “Heroic Nights” are bound to pull in some interested parties. However, names like “The Chics”, “Fighters”, and “Demon Hunters” may not pull in a lot of traffic. Once the name has been chosen, you will be issued a “Guild Charter”. This is a list that requires you to obtain at least ten names prior to the official “establishment” of your guild. While it may be tempting to just run around and invite anyone you see, it is important that you are a bit selective in this process. You will want to ensure that you review a character’s level, their skills, their knack for team work, and more. When inviting powerful players to sign your guild charter, you may want to offer a token of appreciation in return – like 50 silver pieces, or a gold piece. Once you have acquired the necessary ten signatures, you will want to return to the Guild Master to officially “register”. Once this has been accomplished, the Guild is established on the server that you have selected. You will then want to create a Guild Tabard that your members can wear to display their devotion to the guild, as well as a bank tab that will allow players to deposit and withdraw in-game cash and items. In order to ensure that you are a successful guild, you will want to take few measures like: – Encouraging members to become active in the guild by helping members complete quests, share items from skills, and place uncommon and rare items in the bank tab – You will want to ensure that you create a website for your guild at the World of Warcraft website and make participation a stipulation for remaining a guild member – You will want to encourage promotions in the guild by setting tasks that guild members must accomplish in order to advance in their standing – You will want to ensure that you take the time to personally offer your assistance to all of the members and offer them incentives for being productive within the guild If you take these steps, your World of Warcraft guild is sure to be one of the most successful ones on the server that you play on!
