Gate of Madness has spent the last five years building a WvW server community. We have a lot of guilds involved, almost no drama, great coordination, and we all have a blast playing together. We are all quite proud of what our server has become. We are certainly not opposed to the idea of transfers, but having more people just to have more people does not appeal. We want people to join our community, not just numbers on the battlefield.
With this is mind, this is the current state of Gate of Madness WvW. We will not be a good fit for everyone. That said, if this sounds like something you want to be a part of, we would love to have you on board.
1) We are a small tight-knit server and we like it that way.
Our server community is not unlike a small town. Everyone knows everyone! We use the server voicechat server not only to coordinate, but to also build relationships. We don’t have any large guilds - instead, we have many small guilds which work together. Some guilds only have a few members, yet still make a big impact.
2) We don’t mind losing.
Don’t get me wrong, we do like to win. Ok, we LOVE winning. But that doesn’t mean that the fun stops when we lose. Our goal is always to do the most that we can with the resources we have. You can ask any of our opponents: GoM does not quit, and we have a TON of fun, even when we are losing.
3) We are a guest server, and proud of it.
Since the expansion, our server has been linked with various servers in all four World V. World tiers. We like to help out our host server whenever we can. Most of us like the variety that server links bring. It allows us to make new friends while keeping our community strong!
4) We are constantly working to improve.
Every Saturday, we hold a server wide meeting to discuss tactics: what worked, what didn’t, and what should be try to do next. We also discuss this sort of thing on the server Discord. This has really improved us as a server, as we share what we learn with each other and look for additional ways to improve.
If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, then we hope you will consider joining our community. I encourage you to take a look at our "Server Website":http://gateofmadnessgw2.enjin.com and even join us on Teamspeak or Discord if you are interested.
