[BT] Talons - Hardcore WvW - Fort Aspenwood

20 March 2013 - 04:28 AM

WHO ARE WE?

The Black Talons [BT] is a guild that has been playing together for years through many MMOs. We are a medium-sized, hardcore, coordinated WvW guild on Fort Aspenwood looking for WvW-focused members. We’re not about egos or self-promotion, we like to make a reputation for ourselves through our actions. We have attracted top talent from many different servers/guilds and we are looking for skilled players interested in a hardcore WvW environment where they can excel and be noticed.

We are not a big guild but we have created a reputation for ourselves through our attention to detail, our movement and our bloodthirst on the battlefield. Our impact is through our play and not the sheer mass of players we bring to the table. Check our our
website for more information!


HOW DO WE WVW?

As a medium sized guild, we don’t have the numbers to simply zerg down walls and gates. This forces us to strive to be as coordinated as possible when in WvW.Currently we field about 20-30 players nightly in WvW. We run specialized groups to increase our efficiency and to ensure all our players have an important role in WvW. We are mainly active in WvW from 6pm EST to 12am EST, but we run smaller groups during the day.

Players are expected to know their classes, be able to listen and use TeamSpeak, willing to spend most of their playtime at night with us in WvW, and be receptive to trying new strategies. A certain level of maturity is expected from our members and must be able to take a joke in TS from time to time.



WHAT CAN WE OFFER YOU?
  • A reputation of excellence and an environment where you are challenged to be your best.
  • A highly skilled and experienced group of players to WvW with. We have been a major force in WvW on Fort Aspenwood since launch and we have grown into one of the best open world fighting guilds in the game.
  • Our medium sized roster allows us to all get to know each other and your contributions to the guild and to WvW are noticed and valued. You can be something more than just a name on the roster with us.
  • We have in-depth WvW strategy and build meetings where we offer general information on all classes to allow our members to better understand all the classes and make it easier for you to kill other classes.
  • Something many other large guilds that rely on numbers cannot: the opportunity to defeat other groups based on skill and battlefield positioning instead of just rolling through them initially.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN US?

If you are interested in joining the [BT] family please head over to the recruitment area of our website and fill out an application. Also feel free to contact us anytime if you are interested in running with us one night to see how we operate. You can always just hop into our TS and say hi! If you have any questions or concerns please send me a PM on the forums or send Malose a mail or tell in game. We look forward to playing with you!
