o/ Hullo everyone! I've been thinking of trying to get a WvW Rp guild set up on the TC server. But I would like to see if I would be able to garner some kind of interest in it from you lovely folks.
I've been trying to read up on some lore about the mist wars and stuff so that I would be able to attempt to pull this off. This idea I have been fostering is basically the guild would be militaristic and feels as the world fights the dragons and their internal problems, the guild is focusing on just keeping the mists secure and enemies at bay (defence/sentry work/scouts in wvw) until the world can devote more resources to helping.
Some things I thought about are complaints of how rp'rs would help in WvW. Well with how PPT works and such, having havoc groups or even smaller can actually contribute a lot! By flipping camps we deny enemy servers the points of holding such camp as well as each point for the yak reaching its destination (though small, that stuff adds up!). By papering towers we are lowering the points the enemy is able to garner. Then the group would easily be able to rp within our allied towers and such. While in there, siege set up or 'ticking' siege can happen, not to mention performing the honorable job of being a sentry. A group of 2 or 3 can truly make a difference within a defended objective, or at the very least make the enemy work hard for it. This can enable time buying where map commanders or other large groups could come to help! Or at best the enemy will leave the objective entirely. By holding our objectives we are securing score the server.
From my understanding of reading the lore of the mist wars is that we are basically fighting other versions of Tyria. And that we don't actually die within the mists, but can still suffer mentally.(?) (please correct me if I'm wrong!). But with this WvW update going out, the TC community is expecting a large influx of people coming in to try things out. So most are going to be doing things to help retain some of this influx and show others why WvW'ers love the gamemode. One of the things that made me stay on the TC server was jumping on years ago and watching role players in the towers and camps around the maps. Though that is gone, or I haven't seen much of it, I would love to be able to bring something like that back!
