Hello. Long time no post. This might get modded in the unlikely event that a mod comes along. As it stands, I am the only member on at this time other than 29 ''guests''. So we all know that Blizzard Activision are going to reimagine Vanilla in some way that everyone will find fault and complain about. The only thing we can't complain about is that this iteration will be official, will not disappear up its own behind in a few hours/days/month, will be stable, and will have proper moderation with professional games masters. Everyone is all excited about it, I like others are modestly pleased to the point of giving a damn. There's no point in going into a guessing game on what iteration Blizz will produce, but there is a point in looking at a timeframe. I believe the latest money stealing bullshit extending release of WoW ''Battle for Azeroth'' is due out in September-ish. There is no way Blizz will release retro Vanilla in that time-frame, and clearly not before it. Assuming they want to go with another pandering to the masses expansion in September 2019, I am guessing that retro Vanilla release will be March 2019. You read it here first/you mocked me about this later. So that gives us a year and all the hoo-haa that goes with it. It is possible that CF will release before then. However, the current track record would indicate that it probably won't. As a great believer in making the best of a situation totally not of my own making, I am suggesting that the reasonably modest number of CF members that populated, sustained, participated and enjoyed the PvE forums who will play in retro Vanilla band together to form a guild on whatever EU PvE realm that becomes available. This way, we can continue to enjoy the binds bonds that keep us together. For reference as to what this guild will be like, I direct you to Yav's thread here: Elicas's thread here: My own thread here: It is likely to be Horde (but not definite). It is definitely going to be casual (but may raid depending on #members and #time available and #other guild associations etc). It will only have players who have the correct maturity (regardless of age) and social skills. I'll leave this thread here and might occasionally bump it if there are any developments. Think of it like the last chapter in the.... ...because if you liked that ending, then you'll like this guild. I will bring 5 players to the party (so to speak) of which 2 are actually competent players, clearly this does not include me. My expectations on Retro Vanilla can be discussed at a later point, however, my feelings are that the PvP realms will be dominated by ex-Pserver players/guilds in terms of raids/PvP/economy and this can be replicated on the PvE realm of our choice without the crassness normally associated. Please leave any comments below. I can be contacted by PM or alternatively, you can ping me on Discord from all our previous conversations. Whatever you do, have fun. Best, Outstanding
Greetings. No polls were killed in this thread. The Guild I'm going to help form a guild. It will be called <The Filthy Casuals>. The purpose of this guild will be a multiple. In the first instance it will be a casual and social guild designed for mature, relaxed people with an abiding sense of humour that don't take themselves too seriously. It might raid, but that's not the be all and end all. It might PvP in BG's and killing that prick Fangorm Staghelm, but that's not important right now. What this guild will appeal to are people who: Level up in their own good time and smell the roses and eat the mushrooms on the way Want to explore all of Vanilla WoW and test the boundaries (literally) of the realm Think that levelling their professions is as important as levelling itself Understand that fishing is nearly as important as downing Kel'Thuzad Are here for the PTE long term Want to make money legally on the AH, form cartels, spread their experiences to guildies in-game and in general, become filthy rich casuals. You get the idea. Why isn't this on the guild forum then? Good question. Because we have to think of the bigger picture. From the very start of Crestfall we've been pursuing a simple goal, that we would have a PvE realm from server start. We've been fortunate in that the devs have been sympathetic to this dream, hence Zul'Dare. Since this was agreed we've been working on a number of other things to try and ensure that we maximise the PvE population. Getting the RP section on the forums is a good example of this. After all, if the realm is all-inclusive then you are maximising your potential. At this stage however, the workload now shifts to us for two salient reasons. The first is that PvE is the poor relation of PvP on private servers. While we don't know what the ratio is, we can make a guess that the population on the PvE realm will be ~60% of its bigger PvP brother. The second reason is that on PvE realms there is always an historic imbalance in favour of the Alliance. Our best guess will be 60:40 in their favour. In essence then, the PvE realm will be gimped in numbers (but still very healthy) and the Horde side on Zul'Dare will be gimped still further. With this natural imbalance it means that those of us who want to join the Zul'Dare horde side are going to have to be high on quality to make up our lack of numbers. So what's the plan then? We may be small in number but we will make up for it because we'll be more organised and resourceful than anyone else. In short, we will actually have a plan. In relation to our faction on Zul'Dare we will have the following tasks to achieve: Use the forums to encourage as many players as possible to roll horde on Zul'Dare without being pushy and obnoxious Act as a support network for new players and guilds in relation to assistance in quests, levelling, equipment and information to make the user experience easier without spoiling their fun Tie in with the top Horde raiding guilds to supply them their mats and consumables at fair prices so they can concentrate exclusively on raid progress From day one, start on the AQ war effort to ensure that the Horde (at least) are not found wanting in fulfilling our side of the bargain Ensure that at the very least, Horde PvE guilds have a chance with server firsts in AQ40 and Naxx as opposed to our Alliance counterparts but in particular, Kul'Tiras Do our damnedest to make Zul'Dare the best realm ever in vanilla WoW (retail or PC) and continue this through all expansions Make RL friends throughout this great community of ours that lasts the years ahead. Final Thoughts We can't do this without the community. I'm guessing based on previous threads that there is a genuine interest in this. We're kicking this off now before Beta so we can get an inkling if it's worth pursuing, so let us know what you think, good and bad. There's a placeholder launched on the guild forums just to get first dibs on the name. We'd like to see an Alliance equivalent whom we'll call The Casual Filthy's to replicate what we're doing here and for neutral AH action. PvE has always been about community. Let's reach out and snowball our realm.
Hello. Just throwing this out there as a suggestion. So there are a number of websites that will cater for hosting your guild so you can form your own community etc. Obviously, things have improved since Vanilla where TS was state of the art and most of the organising was done online. Still feel that having a guild website and forums are pretty important though. So your options seem to be things like enjin, gamerlaunch and shivtr. Problem here is that most of these cater for retail wow and offer little functionality to make one site different from the rest. Not knowing much about forums and websites I looked around and it seems pretty expensive if you want to go down the commercial route. Now I'm pretty sure that a lot of you can pass on your advice as to how to get around this with the least cost possible, but it occurred to me that we already have an incredible all-singing and all-dancing set of forums here. Would it be possible for Crestfall to offer an extension of their IPS forums to guilds in Crestfall? I can appreciate that this would mean a bit of research and would probably mean that you'd need to create a series of templates to choose from. But if this was possible, you could offer this service as a monthly fee to interested parties. The proceeds from the guild hosting could help run the servers. Additionally, you could link in raid progression, an armoury, and all the usual paraphernalia we remember from vanilla. It would also differentiate us yet again from the marketplace. I can appreciate that now is not really the time to be suggesting even more work for the staff, but maybe the community could supply the minions to make this happen.
Just as it says on the can. Guild banks were not introduced until 2.3. They were prone to misuse and massive griefing issues from thievery by stolen accounts or ninja players acting all responsible until they got access to the meaty stuff. However, there's no doubt that it enhanced the guild experience and made it easier to donate cast-offs to low level players and as an aid to profession progression. It doesn't make the game easier, it doesn't dumb the game down, it's just one of those obvious elements that should have been in the game far earlier. So just putting this out there. You can argue that any adjustment like this ensures we are no longer experiencing the 'joys' of vanilla. However by the same token, the developers have informed us that they are making the mobs and presumably some instances/raids harder to take into account the fact that the players are experienced and therefore the 'challenge' won't be the same. So it can work both ways no?
