Looking for a few people to start a guild

Hi all, my friend and I are looking for a few people (2-4 initially) to start up a very casual guild. We are new to SWTOR (mid-Jan) but are by no means new to MMO gaming. What we need are some like minded players who want to casually progress through the end game content, beginning with hard modes (of which we have so far done none) and potentially progressing through the OP's.

A bit about us: We are elitists when it comes to who we will play with, but not in our approach to content. In other words, we hate using group finder and doing PUG's because of the idiots you end up grouped with. What we want is a few people that know what they are doing (in regards to mechanics, we don't care if you know the encounters or not - we don't so we are going to be learning too) who are easy to get along with, can take a joke and give as good as they get. What we don't care about is whether we wipe, how quickly we progress or most importantly of all, gear.

I play an Assassin tank (now 50), my friend hasn't decided yet and has a slew of level 20ish characters trying to find her 'fit' so we don't care if you started SWTOR yesterday or 5 months ago, we will help level and learn. We muck around a lot, we have fun. In other MMO's she constantly played the "how low can I get his health before healing him' game, in SWTOR I love playing the 'how long before she panics after I force stealth and drop aggro' game. Like I said, we are not elitist in regards to content, only as to who we group with.

With that all said, if this sounds like your kind of guild please send a tell or mail to Vallik in game, or to me on the forums here and we will add you to friends list and hang out for a while. We have not formed a guild yet, and won't until we have the right group of people to do so. We won't take anyone who randomly applies without getting to know you first but by the same token we aren't playing a game of 20 questions. We just want to get to know you.

Vallik.

Yes, if you read it you would see why.

I read it too and had a laugh. The assumption that everyone who uses group finder is incompetent is absolutely ridiculous. If you want to go through the end game content, you'll find it easier running HM FPs and Story Mode operations through group finder because there are always geared and experienced players using it just to do the weekly for the BH comms. Much, much easier than struggling to do it with 8 newbie 50s who you may recruit with 12k hp, lul.

"Elitist" has too many twisted meanings these days and is probably not the best word in this context.

I kind of get Vallik's point. It is not that all GF/PUG are incompetent but tend to display lack of team mentality and sociality, which seem to be the key values of the guild Vallik trying to start.

I am sure they are many players who enjoy the social aspect of mmo more than just "progression" or in-game achievements.

Good luck.

So basically, you are elitists because you want to be carried by decent players while stuffing round like a bunch of numpties? Go talk to Zargor, I'm sure he knows that feel.

Where did I say we want to be carried? I specifically said we don't care if people are even level 50 yet, implying that we will learn and gear up together. I also specifically said that we will start with hard modes which we have not attempted ANY of so far. This means gear and content progression starting from the beginning of end-game, ie when you first hit 50. No, we do not want to jump straight into 8 man OP's to be carried by people who already know what they are doing and are geared. You people that don't read what is actually written are the exact reason we hate group finder.

Someone actually read and understood, thank you. Perhaps I did word it a bit off, but the point remains the same.
We don't assume that everyone using group finder is an idiot, but there are certainly more than a few around, it's the bane of MMO's these days and you all know it whether you choose to accept it or not. Our choice to not use group finder is our own. We want a small guild of like minded people who we actually get along with so that we can laugh and learn together, what is so wrong with that? Too many people are so focused on rushing through end game content to get geared so they can sit around doing nothing in their BiS gear and be bored.

I know there are other like minded people out there, we meet them in every MMO we play. Finding them is the problem and the purpose of this post. If you don't like our philosophy you don't need to say anything. Go back to your raid guild and wait in line to be geared like the rest. I don't fault you for that, thats what you want from the game. How about you let us get what we want from the game.

Everybody who has posted on this thread thus far are PvPers lol.

You're elitest with who you group with but you're willing to form a guild with people who could be complete and utter crap I don't get it

in your sense to enjoy the endgame content you do the raids once you no how to do it, it gets so damn boring its not funny thats why people rush through it on there alts to get it done to have BiS gear to be ready for the newer content to come out.

^ This.

Also, i'm sorry to say, i've never met anyone in an MMO ever that would find the "how low can i let his health get" or "TEEHEE agro drop" games fun.

Honestly good luck to you though, hope you find what you're looking for.
