LotD has been around for 17 years, and during that time we have taken up collections to help our members in need. This week hurricane Sandy came up the East Coast of the United States, and brought destruction to all in its path. One, possibly more, of our own has been hit by this storm, and I'll show you a picture of his house below.
Donation drive is ended. We raised about $950.00 from all the donations. Thanks to all to chipped in to help!!
In WwW our server, so far, floats between Tier 1 and Tier 2 matchups. In plain engrish, our competitive range is between the #2 and #4 rank for North America, and the servers are scored on a server (not guild) ranking method.
Editorial On Asset Point Ranking Systems
Capturing assets should certainly be used towards earning points in an open world or RVR ranking system. But there should also be a certain amount of points set aside for being out there killing players, and protecting strategic resources on the map (i.e. protecting Dolyak supply routes).
At least to me it would make PVP more strategical because it would assign point scores to all major aspects of the GW WwW end game. Sieges battles are fun, but it is good to mix it up with other ways to earn points. Splitting up the point generation also ensures that "Night Capping" is minimalized, and people can get back in the fight with a little head bashing in PVP.
Today marks one month since the launch of Guild Wars 2! This past week has shown that Lords of the Dead continue to be at the top of our game. Our server, Eredon Terrace, has been battling it out in tier 1 WvW. Good Game to our allies and enemies for an awesome week of PvP!
LotD, Ascension Alliance, and all of Eredon Terrace are gunning for that number one spot!
Our Arena Crew is preparing for Arena Net to open up the ranked arenas. Thanks Hectic for putting together a video showing LotD in sPvP!
In case you missed it here is Calebreth's video showing what a Lords of the Dead "5 Man Hit Squad" can do!
