- Guild Wars: Massively Overpowered
- Edited by: 03/22/2011
It's been a while since I gave a rundown of MVOP's activities and status, so this brief news lull seems like the perfect time. The guild is still progressing through the game at a decent clip -- Prophecies and Factions are completed, and last week we arrived at Kodunur Crossroads in Nightfall. Once we finish Nightfall, we'll head to Eye of the North.
Recently, the guild began mixing things up a bit by doing a mission in our planned progression then backtracking for a vanquish in a campaign we've already completed. My hope is that once Winds of Change arrives, we can add that content to our regular mission nights.
We play throughout the week but meet every Thursday night at 9:00 p.m. EDT for the main storyline in Japanese district 1 of the relevant town or outpost. Why Japanese? We're joined by not only guild members but alliance members and players who have their own guilds but still wish to participate. Using local chat in a quiet district allows us all to communicate and form groups without disrupting a busier local channel. Want to join us for some playtime? Keep an eye on our forums every week to see what we're doing and where to meet us -- we'd love to have you along!
Each week's events are played out live on our livestream channel, so if you can't get in game, you're welcome to hang out there during Thursday night events. There is usually some lively discussion happening in the chat channel, and while I can't stop nuking long enough to type, I do keep an eye on chat and participate verbally via the livestream -- so feel free to stop by with questions, comments, and conversation! If the time doesn't work for you but you still wish to watch later, you can do that any time from the "latest videos" list on our livestream channel.
Finally, if you're looking for a guild and wondering whether MVOP is a good fit, let me give you a bit of background. MVOP is part of the GWO (Guild Wars Online) alliance, a nine-guild alliance whose forums are hosted on -- surprise! -- Guild Wars Online. MVOP has between 95-100 members on a regular basis, with players being removed after one month's inactivity to make room for those waiting to join. (Those players are always welcome to rejoin when they start playing again, of course.) At this moment, the guild has three spots available. Want to join? Check out this thread in our forums.
The guild -- and the alliance, for that matter -- welcomes players of every skill level. We have players who have been in the game since the beta days and players who have owned the game for less than a month. However, the guild and the alliance are very heavily PvE-focused. There are a few groups of players working on beginning GvG groups, but as a rule, PvP players won't find much to do in the alliance. If you're after a PvP focus, or if you want to shop around for a guild in general, the GWO forums have a pretty active recruitment forum.
