I've never been a part of a guild in any game who's more hilarious and fun to play with. Every night is like a party.
As most people know... its hard to find a guild that's both hilariously fun/casual while also fiercely competitive. It's a rare balance. Usually either your guild is hardcore serious, or you're casually playing in a different guild and having to follow other big guild commanders to make a difference.
Well, in SF we balance the two sides perfectly. You can play casually, and I promise you will be a part of something great every time. We're adults with lives and we come in game to kick serious ass.
As for the competitive edge, Strike Force was ranked among top 10 guilds in GW1, and many of the cores remain. We know the maps really well and we have some of the best siege placement I've seen anywhere, save for War Machine. We also have 5 commanders in the guild.
We constantly fight uneven odds and come out ahead. It's what we prefer. It's what makes the game fun for us .
Here are two videos from last week's intense IoJ/JQ/SBi fight in which SBI pulled out ahead at the end.
No 1. A ninja stealing of the orb assisted and filmed by a guild ally from DA. We were heavilty outnumbered so another guild lured the JQ army north for a 2-3 minute window:
you may have noticed the term 'push their shit in' yelled out a few times . Well we've coined that term now, and here's us doing more of that when we ran into an ambush at a camp. Usually with planning we wipe mobs bigger than this. But even when we're surprised... we don't back down:
SBI'ers can attest to how great of a presence Strike Force brings to any map we're on, because they've seen both awesome and hilarious antics go down surrounding the commander Jedbacca (our guild leader).
But like I said before... even though we're competitive... its all about having fun . That's why we build a flame ram at every supply camp we take. So you'll know who pushed your shit in.
And speaking of rams, here's a hilarious prank we pulled a few weeks ago when we had the T2 match locked.
I'm making this post because I feel very lucky to have found this guild... and many of our new recruits agree its the most fun they've had playing Guild Wars 2. As soon as you roll with us for a week's matchup, you're like a member of the family. Anyone looking for a great guild for WvW on Stormbluff Island should have the privilege of being in a guild like this. We don't care if you rep other guilds doing PVE or sPvP or whatever. It doesn't hurt our ego if everyone isn't always 'representing'. Because when we're in WvW... you'll WANT to represent SF when rolling with us and creating mayhem .
So, to wrap this up --
If you're on the Stormbluff Isle server and looking to link up with a fun crew for more serious, coordinated WvWvW gameplay... Strike Force should be your first stop.
We use mumble for voice comms, but dont require that you have a mic... just get on so you can hear what's going on if you don't want to speak. There's plenty of us doing that already .
And, well... is this a 'recruitment' thread? I guess so... but even if you don't want to join the guild, and just want to roll with us and get on our mumble... give us a shout! We don't really care - the more the merrier. Many of our members start that way... and we still have close friends from different guilds who get on our voice comm server and play with us regularly.
We have one requirement - that you be a mature person who can be laid back and not cause drama or tension over simply playing a game. We're adults, and though we play this game a lot, we don't see it as the end-all be-all of our existence. We just like to kick some ass.
For those interested in joining the guild, or joining in on our operations from time to time, please respond with your IG name, or send a PM to me or Jedbacca on the forums...
or In Game, either whisper or send mail to Jedbacca or Blood and Shadow.
You will also find that we have a strong presence on the forums at StormbluffIsle.com , where... even if you don't join us, I hope you're registered and participating.
See you out there!
