Band of Brothers was one of the oldest and most-established guilds in Age of Conan and has a reputation for being fun, dignified, and also successful. We  bring  with us in Guild Wars 2, the same level of commitment, goals, and principles, to which we add:  experience in guild management (we have learned a lot in 4 years of running a MMORPG guild) a relaxed environment and a very powerful guild structure.

We are primarily a High-End PVE-focused guild. We also PvP to a lesser extent and it's something we plan to improve on. World vs World (WvW) and Structured PvP (sPvP) will be part of our daily activities

We concentrate on endgame content such as Dungeons and Elite (dynamic) Events, we believe that having fun with your guild mates whilst coordinating on Ventrilo/TS, is more pleasant, rewarding and less time consuming then randomly joining an *Elite Dynamic Event*, where there is no organization or logic and everyone does what they want. In Age of Conan, we have been a guild that have figured out and successfully completed 'hard-mode instances', usually world-first or server-first. We are determined to get same results  in Guild Wars 2!

We plan to build an accomplished end-game team and therefore we need numbers from people who are good and determined. Every mature individual willing to get as good as possible with his class and participate on building a strong and successful guild is welcomed.

Because we want to keep our regular members happy and playing as much as possible, we are likely to not accept more players than what we can manage. We have learned over the years that *numbers aren't everything* and usually a small, but determined group can achieve more than a guild where players log just to get their loot, without bonding or getting to know each-other. We are not an *item farm*, we are a community.

Our philosophy: "there is a time and a place for everything": - we are serious, focused and disciplined  when engaging into new areas, and we  joke, banter, drink and  have fun, once the *farm* status is achieved.

When applying to the guild you become a Trialist. If you lack experience you will be trained in all encounters and how to get the best out of your class. When the Trial period is over, the officers will evaluate and vote. Passing your trial after 30 days will depend on attendance, performance, activity and character. Poor behavior and bad attitude will not be tolerated by anyone.

We have regular competitions for our members and an established medal system for a variety of rewardable reasons. Our website is more than just a place to plan dungeon runs or our daily in-game activities, it is the lively virtual home of our members, full of tactical threads, build discussions, picture threads, videos, jokes, and banter.

English is used in Guild and  Group chat. Except for the forum rules, there are no other restrictions on the language or content thereof you may use. We're all adults here (hopefully).

Our attitude to PvP is what we believe it should be: all about fun. Our members are free to engage in or avoid any PvP-related activity as long as they do so fairly and respectfully.

On our website,  you can find anything worth mentioning regarding Guild Wars 2:
  • official announcements
  • community news (properly credited, we hope)
  • videos (most of them selections, not every 15' year old kid with a mic gets linked)
  • wallpapers
  • game tools (periodically checked for inconsistency and the original sites scanned by AVs' and malware tools such as Sucuri, MalwareGoogle, SiteLock and Comodo site inspector)
  • builds and game analysis (some public, some private ^^)
  • New Player Handbook (based on Chelmo's compilation - changed in proportion of 75%, with a quick "jump to selection menu" for easy browse, this section is always "work in progress")
  • RSS - we offer 4  types of syndication for our news, forum, video gallery, chatbox, comments and... rest is secret. :P
  • We are also hooked into ArenaNet's twitter and  have live feed from their official site and blog  RSS, allowing us to always keep our members updated.
No links to 3rd party questionable sites, no 1000 Google searches to find what you're looking for, no reading through 100 guru pages to get the relevant info out, no ADS and no need to register (to access most of the content).

Basically the idea behind the portal was to create a "1 stop"  website for our members, saving them the trouble of having to waste time finding relevant information about Guild Wars 2. Obviously ArenaNet iteration obsession doesn't make things easy for us, because we need to constantly re-evaluate the articles and the information we provide.

Of course being a member gives you access to our famous Online Info Menu, which will notify you about every new addition we make, being news, article, video, comments, forum post, chatbox shout or private message.

Dungeon progression

Our dungeon progression (guild only runs, no exploits)  and a history of  it can be found here Guild City Progression:

Tier 4/5. Almost everything  build/researched.

WvW

We are trying to have  organized events in this department and it is starting to go better because the queues on peak times decreased, and the PVE aspect of the game is nearly completed (which gives us more time to attend WvW).


RECRUITING:

We are recruiting ACTIVE hardcore PvEers for dungeons and 1-2 semi-hardcore players for  our sPvP team (tournaments).

By hardcore we mean:

Quote

Join all the planned events (minimum 10 events/month), join all progression runs, adjustable/flexible build and proper gear, VoIP attendance and daily site/forums visits.


We currently have spots for: elementalist, necromancer,thief and mesmer.
Signups for warriors and guardians are closed. Rest of the classes are on low requirement  but good applications   will be accepted.

Please do not apply if you are not serious, or if you plan to solo the game, not attend planned events or just  go afk and never to be heard of again. Also important to note that we have zero tolerance for drama and glory seekers.  :)

We can now again accommodate 1-2 players for PvE dungeons (highly efficient runs, 3 hours events each night)  and our shy sPvP tournaments attempts (only PvP lvl 31 here, we still learning).

New: we accept players from other servers than Gunnar's Hold (since you don't have to actually be on same server to join a dungeon).

At the moment we successfully hosted 75 PvE (dungeon) events and counting. To understand how we operate I attached a screenshot of one of the events signup page:

Tired of  sitting in Lion's Arch waiting for a  group to pop for your dungeon run? If that's the case why not join a guild that  offers organized dungeon events  daily in a high efficient manner.

All we ask  from you is to not waste our time by applying and then not join the events on planner or  not knowing how to play your class.

Updated OP to reflect the  homepage changes for GW2 (same site different index). These changes were necessary to support our implementation of TESO  modules.

Forgot to add, we're still active. ;)
