NA/EU Players Guild - Ye Olde Curmudgeons (OLDE) wants YOU! Living on Ferguson's Crossing...

Resurrected.4132Resurrected.4132 Member ✭✭

Yes, you!

Who are we?

We are two gamers that have gamed for too many years to even remember =) . One of us is based in the USA (guild founder and PvE player) and one of us in the UK (being British I am very posh :p ).

Where are we?

Ferguson's Crossing (NA) - To take part you will need to be on Ferguson Crossing or any other NA world server.

Current member count and nationalities

26, American, English, German, Swedish, Vietnamese, Chinese, Canadian, Scottish.

What do we want?

YOU, of course, =) and you want us, that's why you're reading this...

Both of us are casual players and we both go back to the Guild Wars original game. Whilst we both log in every day, our "game" day is a Saturday - aka beer Saturday (we like beer). Saturday will find us online from about 13:00-14:00 (CST) and 18:00-20:00 (UTC). Normally we play for a five or six-hour session. We then carry on with Serious Sunday - our day of prayer (yeah right!). Sunday we plan fractals and using Discord we look to run Guild events that members want to complete. It's a laid back hangover cure day of course :#B)

We want to recruit players who are not too serious and want to have fun playing. We run PvE (Sto the guild founder, is brilliant and knows the world like it was his own neighbourhood). In the past, we run WvW, dungeons and fractals. We'd love to see players join who want to lead and are happy to lead the areas of the game outside of PvE.

So, if you want to be a leader but don't want to be under a guild that treats the game as if life depended on it, then we could be the guild for you.

We use Discord for voice comms and will help any new players find there way around the world.

What do we expect?

Just that you are respectful of others, that you rep the guild when online and there is at least one other guild member online. That you take part and have a laugh and a bit of fun.

Could we be THE guild for you?

  • i have just recently come back to the game and am looking for a few people to play with and re-educate me on what i should be doing. i am an old cat that needs some older people to play with instead of a ton of kids.

  • Hey Enemyone,

    I should be in game later on today. When are you about?

    Welcome to the guild. Hopefully, I'll catch you in-game later.

    Just a quick update to the OP. We've now changed over to Mumble for voice comms with our own dedicated server.

    We are still looking for active friendly players who will take part. We DO NOT want players that sign up and then just do their own thing and don't chat with other members and just consistently play solo.

    OLDE want to build a community of friendly players.

  • Are you planing to do fractals, dungeons and to level your guild? I'm a returning player that is really interested in PvE but also want to see a guild grow. I got a bunch of 80 characters but only one that has good equipment, that may change though.

    Hi Xabog,

    We most definitely are aiming to grow. Once large enough we will look to organise fractal runs.

    I enjoy WvW and hope to expand that side of the guild community.

    Above all the aim is to build a friendly community of like-minded players who will all get on, have fun, whilst taking part in the various elements of GW2 that make it the game we all enjoy playing.

    I do really enjoy WvW except its so much harder to do with guild due to server limitations. Could I get an invite and try your guild out, or should I search your guild up online and apply?

    I will send you a guild invite. If you do not have Mumble, then please download it.

    Hi I am dead old, I was playing online computer games using abacus and Woolly Mamoth tusks. but seriously I am pretty long in the tooth gamer, I really did hook two commodore Amigas together using an RS232 lead to play Falcon with my mate. I am now having to lead a more sedentary lifestyle and returned to Guild Wars.

    I played Anarchy Online, WOW, GW, GW2, Eve and a few others in my time. I am now looking for a helpful guild, with no pressure, good banter and no 12 year old Bulgarian Hackers telling me I am kitten because I don't raid 25 hours a day, 12 days a week.

    I cannot be online all the time as I have work, which believe it or not I am a professional developer. ( but not games ). I don't drink beer, ( will discuss why one day ) and I haven't a clue what I am doing in game. I got my half baked little mutant jobber to level 80 and now I am lost.

    Did I say I am old.... I forgot... I think I might have just wet myself ... but I need a coffee now, hope to speak soon... Steve

    Hi Bullocks,

    From your description, you sound like you'd fit in perfectly. I'll be in game tomorrow and will contact you.

    You have a guild invite awaiting you.

  • Welcome to all those who have joined and have said they are having a good time.

  • I would like to join your guild.

    Despite being online, you have not been considerate enough to respond to any of my in-game communication.

  • We are still recruiting. We've had two new members transfer from EU to NA so they can take part with us.

    If interested we will be having a guild run out in about 90 minutes and we will be online for five to six hours.

  • We are growing slowly and organically and still looking for new members who will fit with our laid back style and approach to GW2.

  • I would like to join the Guild. You can message me in game - Thanks.

  • We are still recruiting and steadily evolving. If you read this and are interested in joining then post here or contact me by chat or mail in-game.

    We intend to run dungeons on Saturday's and on Sunday's we will have a session to run guild missions.

  • I'd be interested in joining (I like beer too) as long as there's no social expectation to post cat gif's, links to videos or any other social media stuff that the younger generations seem obsessed with. I'm just looking for a group of people to do group content with (dungeons, fractals, strikes) using voice comms. I've got 6 level 80 toons including one with full ascended gear for running t1/t2 fractals. I'm US CST time, typically on at server reset during weeknights and any time on weekends.

  • Akeha,

    I've contacted you in-game.

    We will be having a guild meet up later. So, if you fancy seeing if we are the right guild for you then join us online between 6 pm - 7 pm UCT/GMT.

  • I suppose I missed the meetup... but any chance I can still join up? I'm a returning player, slowly getting back to the game, and used to do a lot of fractals (can't promise I can remember everything!)

    Hi Karally,

    We are having a guild mission run later today. Meeting up at 7 pm UTC/GMT. If you want to join us and are free then come along. I'll mail you in game with our Mumble log in. So, if you do come along then you'll be set up 😊

  • Currently growing at the pace we want =) and this is working very well as we tend to keep the majority of members who decide we are a good fit for them.

    We don't do :

    • kitten
    • In-game politics

    We do :

    • Have fun
    • Run dungeons
    • WvW
    • Guild missions
    • PvE

    We will be :

    • Running fractals
    • Running raids
    • PvP

    **We still are looking for you : **

    • As long as you want the above
    • Maybe want to take on a lead role
    • And ya don't kitten =)=)
  • Wife and I are returning player interested in finding out more about your guild. We're relatively inexperienced in GW2 but have been playing MMORPGS for quite some time. Looking for more information on your requirements to join, please let me know what next steps are. Appreciate your time.

    Hi Ryjak,

    I've made contact with you in-game. You could be married couple number two to join Olde :)

  • **It's that time of the week! Hell yeah, it's beer Saturday and we will be having a guild get together in just short of four hours at 7 pm UTC/GMT. So, pour your favourite tipple, log in to GW2, say hello to the idiots at OLDE and come and join us for a Saturday outing. **

  • We are still looking out for great laid back gamers to jump aboard the Olde train and join us exploring Tyria.

  • Come along and join a great group of people, this Saturday at 1800 UTC/GMT. We welcome new players to the game and experienced players who would like a mature, no-nonsense guild to spend time in Tyria with.

  • Just over two hours before we start "Beer Saturday". Pour a cold one and come join us =)

  • If you are new to fractals and want to learn, then now is the ideal time to join as this weekend we are starting to run members who want to get started in fractals.

  • hi, interested in joining your guild, been playing off and on for the last 5 years and wanting a casual PvE group to play with that is online more often than my current guild, I've done mainly solo stuff before now and I'm wanting to change that

    Welcome to Olde Curmudgeons, RiyanN.8517. I hope you are looking forward to your first Beer Saturday =)

  • Hello.

    I'm a returning player that, unfortunately, doesn't like beer, or any other alcohol, and likes kittens and cute fluffy things. I've been playing on and off since the start of 2013. I want a group to run fractals with eventually, once I pick a main to focus on learning. I have everything but Warrior and currently Revenant at 80, but I'm working on the latter and previously had one at 80. I generally prefer supportive roles, so that's gonna be fun to figure out. Voice chat makes me incredibly nervous before I know people. I'm also a grumpy librarian/artist with a weird work schedule that makes me unreliable on weekends!

    I'm very interested in the guild and have finally admitted that I have an abusive relationship with Final Fantasy XIV (I wish I was kidding there - it's a long story) and I need to get away from it and dive fully into another game. Joining a chill guild should help me with that! I'm off this weekend, except for a couple hours on Sunday, so I should be easy to catch in game.

  • Sounds promising. Thanks for the in-game mail as well. I'll send you something in game soon. Thanks!

  • Hi, I would be interested in joining your guild. I am a new player, about a week now, and I am really enjoying the game. I am on the west coast, PST, and I am usually more active on weekends, that is, if She Who Must Be Obeyed doesn't have a list of things for me to fix or build. I am pretty casual and I am interested in PvE, Dungeons, Fractals, WvW and End Game content when I get there. I don't have any level 80s and I am still trying to find the classes I like, I am a altaholic. I've been playing different MMOs for as long as I can remember (WoW, LOTRO, Rift, GW, SWTOR, CoH, ESO) and I like running small groups or no pressure raids.

    Your guild sounds like a group of laid back ADULTS, I like that, I am not looking for a guild that expects you to treat the game like a second job.

    You can hit me up in game or here I guess.

  • I would very much like to join your guild. Started out with the original Guild Wars way back when, progressed to GW2. Took a break for a while and have recently returned. I changed servers so I could restart from scratch because of all the changes. I have created a new ranger and i am currently doing the low level thing. I am a casual player but slowly working toward raiding as well.

    Hey Rejected,

    You sound like you could fit straight in. We have two married couples in the guild already. I'll either catch you in-game or drop you an in-game mail. We can catch up and you can ask any questions you may have.

    All the best

    Rez aka that dumb Brit :)

  • We are still recruiting and I am happy to say we are going from strength to strength. Beer Saturday is a massive success when you will a brilliant turnout of members all having a great time (even those who do not drink =) ).

    Currently we are running at 24 members. We have only had two recruits leave as they decided they wanted a very large guild. That's fine and we wished them both luck in finding the correct guild for them.

    Our Guild Hall is progressing well and we should have an arena built vey soon.

    What's not to like about Ye Olde Curmudgeons ? =)=)

    Read our recruitment post at the top of this thread and if we sound like the guild for you, just say hello to me in-game. If I am not on-line drop me an in-game mail. I repoly to every one of them.
