- the guild has singlehandedly made the reputation of a server, or destroyed it when leaving
- known across multiple servers for skill and/or presence
The question marks are for guilds that I think should be in there, but would like to hear others' thoughts. Ultimately this hall of fame is intended to be really really small. Probably less than 10 guilds for guilds both past and present.
Hall of Fame
WM - War Machine pretty much put SBI on the map with their quality of play and it was quite distinctive for anyone whenever you went up against them in coordination and whoopass. They also caused SBI to tank and depart from T1 very rapidly
RUIN - Love them or hate them, this was a massive zerg force that defined ET when ET could still be considered T1 and a contender to unseat HoD. What RUIN lacked in leadership or skill they made up for in sheer numbers and determination and without them, the joke that was the Ascencion Alliance would have barely been a footnote. Now a much smaller force on BG as most members have departed for PlanetSide 2 a real WvW game , At one point RUIN singlehandedly spawn camped SoS. One guild. An entire server. Full disclosure - I used to run with this zerg.
PRX - Think a lot of us know The Professionals. They definitely deserve to be in here having been the backbone of Titan Alliance and made multiple servers successful, most recently putting SoS on the map and covering their NA weakness.They also have a long successful history of PvP in other games and conduct that befits their name, Not to mention massive threads about them that are still going
CND? - Condemned may not have been nearly as prominent as PRX and are now long gone, but I think they deserve to be here just founding the Titan Alliance and pulling off what they set out to do. However on the open field and actually in combat, what do you guys think?
TSYM? - Not entirely sure these guys should be hall of fame but they're close, SoS never really had it together and were still (barely) beat by Fort Aspenwood until these guys arrived from Dragonbrand and SoS seemed to magically get their shit together. However, don't know the history enough to really say they had *that* much impact, or maybe they were just one of many core guilds i.e with their butt-buddies MERC that helped make SoS T1 material.
Any others you guys should be nominated? keep in mind this is a best of the best list.
