Hello there - I go by the name Llaama, and I'm a member of the guild TSym, I play a Norn engineer. Unlike many of our members in TSym I am based in Europe so I don't get to run with the main force all that often.
I have played MMOGs since UO beta (and MUDs before that, showing my age~) and the community I see in SoS is just like what I experienced in DAoC on the Palomides server, which has been the highlight of my time in these kinds of games. I love the WvW game format - it reminds me of the PK/antiPK wars, the glory that was RvR, and even (a little) the original Alterac Valley maps in WoW. Of course it could use some improvements (these kinds of formats always can) but I suppose we'll see what happens next month with the big WvW patch.
I was one of those who moved originally from Dragonbrand and the SoS community and playerbase here in SoS is what keeps me playing GW2. And although I'm sure that our good friends from the JQ propaganda corps will try to deny it, we are still getting transfers into SoS and we are seeing more and more people express an interest in joining us in WvW (we discovered a guild originally from SBI yesterday in EB who was doing great work!).
We have quite a few guilds who are hardcore into WvW, we have some who are more casual WvWers - of course all are welcome! For those who haven't done WvW before, we help them understand some of the key objectives, have strategy posts and discussions on the forums, and of course are always open for questions...after all, we were all newbies once.
So if you want to be a part of a great community and have a great and positive atmosphere while playing GW2, Sea of Sorrows is a fantastic place to be. And if you want more information you can always message the server leaders (or me, I'd be happy to chat
) to find out more about it.
