Greetings all my fellow Guild Wars 2 fans, players and those "like myself" who are totally stoked about GW2!

Bedlam is now seeking those who want to be with a great minded, adaptable and VERY easy going folks like yourself to play on US Server/World

Bedlam is doing something different than MANY guilds are planning. While not to discount or attempt to be negative, what our plans in WvWvW are: instead of massive, epic raids against main Keeps. We are going to focus on the smaller targets such as Supply bases/caravans, forts and even towers. While it is without a doubt a requirement that taking the Keep is an epic battle of epic importance, what we noticed during Beta weekend was: MANY ignored the smaller outposts.

Whether Bedlam has a guild of 50 or 100 or even 1000, we will attempt to work in 8-12 man teams where the focus is on taking these smaller targets with lightning speed and efficiency. We then will be ensuring that adequate supplies are carried with our group so that defenses are able to re-built along with upgrades and then defended by a small group. Our end goal is such that not only do we take the location, that we will hold it and the enemy will be forced to throw many, many more of their characters against us, which will give our allied guilds the ability to focus more on the larger targets.

Guild Wars 2 in our opinion is so dependent upon guilds and groups working together that we created a guild just to further help our world to have dominance and to ensure that their manpower is focused upon the task of taking those large Keeps.

PvE'ers, we FULLY support you. I will be very blunt here when I say: PvE in Guild Wars 2 "at least in Beta" was a truly enjoyable and great experience overall, I and all members of Bedlam had an incredible time playing PvE and to deny PvE to our members is not and will NEVER happen...in fact it is encouraged.

Crafting it seems will be a very useful experience in GW2, where some MMO's have had a broken/useless crafting system. It would appear and seem that Crafting in GW2 is both useful and beneficial to everyone. Coming from a SWTOR player, I assure you that this is more than just a breath of fresh air. Posted Image

If you are wondering about our "Rank" system, we do not have 5, 10 or20 "Ranks" to climb through the guild. I personally have found only issues and drama that arise with ranks and such, what our members and myself have only wanted was: a group of people that enjoy each others company, treat each other with respect and consideration.

Where some guilds have many rules and initiations procedures to go through, we have taken the: Let's try to get to know the person applying and see how they do method. One thing that I have learned is: someone who is GREAT at PvP in "x" game, may not be as great in "y" Game, anyone can surprise in any game and as long as your attitude is good, then we are good with having you on our team. Experienced, in-experienced, casual or hardcore. Everyone has their place in Bedlam and all are welcome to see if we and you fit in.

MMO's are a game and games are supposed to be fun, they should be your "escape" from your day to day life, they should be your "way" to relax and unwind when the kids are asleep, homework is done or a project for work finally reaches its conclusion.

Are you ready? Are you excited? Just click the link and help Bedlam become the friendly and fun guild that it is designed to be, surrounded by fun loving individuals just as yourself.

Bedlam's website has been redesigned.  While the looks may have changed and been significantly changed.  The core of Bedlam, the goals of Bedlam have not changed nor will they ever.

Come on by and check us out.

Yet another new member has joined the ranks of Bedlam, come on over and check out how a guild breaks the standard "guild rules" every day and only gets stronger because of it.

More and more members have joined Bedlam, please take a few minutes to see for yourself how this guild has taken a focused approach towards WvWvW.  If you are looking to join the "Zerg" then Bedlam is NOT for you.

The mass grouping of hundreds towards one target...is not our purpose, nor anything that interests us even a little bit.

However, if intensive fighting, lightning strikes, cohesive units fighting in small groups where leaders are not assigned or micro-managed.  Where you join/lead groups on your OWN free will and desire.

If the desire to work with and lead small groups interests you.

If the desire to be in a guild, where your opinion REALLY does matter, where EVERYONE is encouraged to take on roles more than just the "normal do what you are told" that is so prevelant.

If you are looking for a guild with a Code of Conduct...where the "rules" are vast and long appeal to you...then Bedlam is NOT for you.

If being treated like a 5th grader by overbearing officers and/or a micro-managing guild leader who DEMANDS to know what you are doing/saying and what ya had for dinner appeal to you...then Bedlam is NOT for you.

Bedlam was created by those who were tired of the "Zerg" approach that is like MANY standard guild policies: Outdated.

The strength of Bedlam is that it is ABLE to constantly change/adapt to WvWvW.  As GW2 has shown, any class can be any of the Holy Trinity essentially.  That alone dictates that the standard age-old Guild structure and how it operates needs to change.

Bedlam has been at the front of the charge since its creation that the MMO'ers now, are not as they were.  The "Alpha Dog's" are more prevelant then ever.  Those who WvWvW wtih a purpose and do NOT want to "join" the Zerg with an Ego-Maniacal person at the center, have been looking for a guild where THEY can quite frankly: Be themselves.

One thing that we have seen by how fast the guild has grown, is that there are MANY MANY groups of 4-6 friends and single or couples of MMO'ers that want just a FEW things:

1. Guild without 20 billion rules...
In Bedlam, just be cool.  Don't internal "Troll" another.  If you WvWvW with us...work WITH US.  
That's basically the "rules"   Are those rules?  Nah...that is common sense and that doesn't NEED to be "posted" or "reminded" to members.

2.  Actual purpose to WvWvW instead of SIMPLE Zerg attacks...
In Bedlam, we are the EXACT opposite of the Zerg.  We have been and will continue to prove VERY quickly that the "old" Zerg way...is dying off.

3. A freakin' Guild Leader that doesn't micro-manage/control/dictate YOU as a member.
I have no "ego" that requires constant reminder of members.  I as a WvWvW player will serve ANY role that Bedlam needs.  If another "toon" is needed for a group that YOU are leading.  I am YOUR soldier to direct.
Not that long ago, a member of Bedlam asked if they could "suggest" a few forum changes.  I didn't ALLOW him to suggest forum changes.  Instead I said: Here are "rights" to change them...start changing the forum to "sharpen" it up.  Then, the most amazing thing happened.  OTHER members started chiming in ideas, thoughts, colors...
Next thing ya know, the website had a FULLY re-designed look to it.  It now looks FAR better than it did when just I did it originally.  I have no tolerance for Guild Leaders that "believe" whatever they do/say/think is perfect/flawless and always correct.  Guild Leaders are not super human or even infalable.

Does that "sound" like a typical Guild Leader?  How many wouldn't just allow...but say: Here ya go, if ya think you can do better. DO IT!

That is just one example of how I am as a Guild Leader.  So darn many "say" that they support/want to hear opinons and such, however they want to ONLY hear the ones that THEY agree with and chastize you for going against.  I don't play the "politics" game.  I only want 1 thing for ALL members of Bedlam:  I want them to have the BEST they can have in both GW2 AND Bedlam.

That simple desire I have, requires that a hands-off approach and allowing members to think on their own without being directed/pushed/told what to do or think.  Independent thought, ability to make decisions without having to "worry" if the powers will agree/back you up.  Bedlam was NOT created for the "standard" do what you are told MMO'ers.  It was created for those who want MORE out of a guild.

Come by Bedlam, see for yourself WHY Bedlam has grown so quickly, why our specialist mentality instead of a "Generalist" do everything approach is both more fun and far more rewarding both in-game and out of game.

Thank you in advance,

Tony

Bedlam is going great everyone, with so many new members to the guild and the great teamwork that has been going on.  It is literally a great time to be here.

Instead of the short novel posts, I thought I would wrap this one up quickly by just saying:

Send me a PM here if you have any questions, check out http://bedlamgw2.guildlaunch.com/  if ya get a chance

Or if you are on Isle of Janthir...and you see a BDLM "tag" running around "which you probably will"  You know what we are doing.

We are causing bedlam...to our enemies. :devil:


Bedlam, "Bringing chaos, confusion and disorder to our enemies."

The [BDLM] tag has become quite well respected in the WvWvW environment over the past couple of weeks.

Bedlam is the guild that of the OVER dozen guilds in the IoJ Alliance calls on to do some dirty work, Bedlam will answer the call.

Bedlam members do not run away at the sight of overwhelming odds, we dig in and with superior firepower, we answer our enemy server's Zerg by making them think twice about TRYING to re-take what we rightfully stole from them. LOL

With the many hundreds of guilds to choose from on IoJ, why Bedlam?

Well, we do things VERY differently here.  We don't have 50 ranks to "climb"  Instead, we embrace individuality among our members, we allow our members to group up according to THEIR playstyle.

We do NOT have the "scolding" approach with 1000 rules, instead we adhere to a VERY simple outlook.  GW2 is a game...and games are SUPPOSED to be fun.  We just want our members to play, have fun...and cause as much Bedlam to our enemies as possible.  So far, we have done a marvelous job at it, and with your help we will be able to have FAR more and cause MUCH more.

For fellow IoJ guilds, if you have NOT checked out: http://www.isleofjanthir.us/  Please do so, to get your guild registered on it.
As far as I can tell and I have searched quite in-depth, this is the largest guild alliance there is.  It started with just 2 guilds not 2 weeks ago.  Now, we are at 12 guilds and thousands upon thousands of collective players represented.

For those of you who are looking to JOIN a guild, if you want to be a specialist...if you WANT a focused guild, if you are looking for a guild with a HUGE Vent Server, with a great website, where it is kept VERY up-to-date with the best information available and a busy and VERY active guild.  Bedlam IS your answer.

Mention that you are coming from THIS website GW2GURU and we can speed up your application process.

Feel free to contact me in-game, my name is: The Great Blain
Send me a whisper and I will be more than happy to chat with you further.
