Removed unnecessary information in this post. The guild will be set up on Frostclaw EU. It's the most populated PvE server that isn't infected with non-English speaking nationals (read: retards), though it has a lot of British and Scandinavian players so it's probably full of dicks anyway (meatballs meight xD).
When you're in the game, whisper or send a mail to Aveira. In order to set up the guild we need four of us online concurrently and in a party; level doesn't matter at all. We need to organise a time where as many people as possible can be online. From Saturday onwards I'll be available for pretty intensive sessions, but ideally we can get the guild made before then.
That is all, meatbags!
The guild didn't deploy since we didn't have enough pre-orders. We'll form the guild instead on a normal server and let everyone know what's going on. I'll probably be on as soon as the early access starts on the 15th December, so I'll get all the guild stuff sorted and update everyone.
To elaborate on a few details about the guild:
- We're called Meatbags Meight. If you don't get it, see the fifth point.
- We're going to play on a Frostclaw EU, a PvE server.
- We're going to be playing Empire.
- We're going to be casual!
- We're only going to accept certain people who were a part of the guild before or during early Icecrown Citadel. *
- We don't have any plans to raid at the moment. **
* This guild isn't a free-for-all like Element became around Ulduar and beyond. We only want a certain personality type: one that fits in with the original Element. For those who raided with us during The Burning Crusade and before, you'll know exactly what I mean by this. This isn't an attempt to exclude people, but to try and return the guild atmosphere that we used to have. To clarify the point further, we're only looking for members who were active in the Element community before and leading up to the cessation of our twenty-five man raiding. You may bring friends with you and have them in the guild, so long as you vouch that their personality will fit in with the guild. Also, Hummel explained it pretty well without the political correctness.
** We don't have a full idea of who will be playing with us in Star Wars: The Old Republic yet. At the moment there are four of us who will definitely be playing with quite a few more being likely. Raids in SW:TOR are either eight or sixteen player groups and it's hard to comment if we'll have enough of certain role types. Aside from this, several people will be playing SW:TOR and holding up a raiding schedule in WoW (enjoy ToC v2 meights xD), so scheduling may be a problem as well. This doesn't mean it's off the table though! I really want to try out the raiding in SW:TOR, especially since I've now quit raiding in WoW. I'll be pushing to try and get a band of eight meatbags together to (probably) faceroll over the content, though there's no guarantees that it will be possible (or faceroll).
Hello, is anyone there?
Star Wars: The Old Republic is going to be out in less than a month's time, and quite a few of us who are still playing World of Warcraft are planning on giving it a go. Over the last few years a lot of us have gone our separate ways, and it'd be really nice to try and get as many people as possible back together in something fresh.
Most of us won't be able to play as much as we used to, though that doesn't mean raiding is off the table. There's nothing to commit to though; the main purpose of having this guild is for social reasons. Obviously many of us have other commitments that prevent us from raiding like we used to, and we haven't really discussed whether we'll engage in raiding yet (though I imagine it's pretty likely if you're interested).
Anyway, if this sounds like something you want to take part in, go to http://www.swtor.com/guilds/276735/meatbags-meight and join up. Ideally it would be nice if you could pre-order the game too, so that we can transfer the guild across when the game goes live (though I don't feel we're going to lose the guild name, somehow).
