Greetings Jade Quarry! Stopping by to share this event with you in hopes that some of you are interested
Tier 1 GvG Workshop
Date: August 2nd - 4pm EST
Hosted in [OnS] Onslaught Teamspeak
Goal: For the health of Guild Wars 2 WvW community - Introduce Tier 1 community to the Open Field Fights/GvG Playstyle
Organizers: [OnS] Haru, [OnS] Malevolent Omen
The Tier 1 Guild vs. Guild Initiative is a joint effort of the GvG community to introduce the open field fights playstyle to the North American Tier 1 community. It is our firm belief that a fighting playstyle will benefit Tier 1 greatly as it leads to healthy and fair competition that is based on player PvP skill and group synergy.
However, this does not have to be at the cost of different playstyles. The goal of this Initiative is to promote a mutual understanding between the Tier 1 community guilds that playing for fights and playing for server rating are not mutually exclusive; when server communities come together with the understanding that each server needs to maintain a certain rating in a tier, we will be able to focus less on pushing hard for PPT and more towards fun and competitive fights.
While GvG’s are intimidating at first, it is our hope that the workshops hosted by this Initiative will gradually introduce all guilds in Tier 1 to the open field fights playstyle and allow the scene to flourish in this tier.
What will happen during the workshop?
The purpose of the workshop is to give a direct line of communication to a wealth of resources regarding open field fighting and GvGs for the Guild Wars 2 WvW community. The drivers that have been selected to sit on the panel represent some of the top core drivers of the GvG community; these drivers have exceeded expectations in this playstyle and have revolutionized this game that we love playing. During the workshop, the panel will be asked a series of questions designed to highlight key factors in the GvG scene, whether it be driving, tactics, meta, or other salient aspects of GvG success. The panel will be able to discuss these different topics in depth with the hope that those listening will be able to pick up key strategies to bring back to their own guilds. After that, participants will have a chance to ask their own questions. Participants in the workshop will sit in a Teamspeak channel where permissions to speak will be granted by our moderators in order to maintain order during this workshop; to speak or ask a question, you must indicate it in the Teamspeak chat box and a moderator will put you in queue.
