Hi everyone as you may or may not know we have had a couple of key members leave in recent months. I took it quite bad as they were very good friends of mine so I have a had a few weeks off to get my shizle back. I'm happy to announce i'm back and not going anywhere dispite the rumours you may of heard, TGOP is my home and always will be.
So looking to the future :D TGOP has had a few problems as of late and if you are experiencing anything or have any ideas how myself and the council/officer team can make TGOP better plz feel free to PM me. We are holding a council/officer meeting sometime in the next 2 weeks date TBC and your concerns and recommendation could help us to make TGOP future proof™
are a community of mature, friendly gamers that play SWTOR. WOW, GW2
and a number of other games. We are based mainly in the EU time zone.
We understand that real life comes first and so we don't expect players
to give up their commitments to advance the guild. We are here to group
up, explore everything the game has to offer and have fun while doing
Gaspode and I went along to the cantina tour in London last
Saturday. The event was a gathering of fans that included a Q&A session
with Lead Designer Damion Schubert.
The venue they chose was tiny (holds 80 people max) so the
Q&A session was split into two to allow more people to attend.Gamers are used to eating and drinking
without taking their eyes off the screen or their hand off the mouse so there
wasn't much of the chaotic milling about you usually get when fans gather
together and this helped them squeeze in quite a few more people into the
room.Food report (for Emmzzi): There
was a mixture of sandwiches, wedges, dips and other finger food, all of which
had to be poked about a bit before you could determine whether it was
vegetarian.There was a little bit of
confusion early on when some people had handed over their raffle tickets to the
(rather lovely *cough*) bar staff in exchange for their free drink (not necessary and
they needed their ticket for the raffle of course) but the organisers quickly sorted
A key chain was given out to anyone who asked a question at
the Q&A session so there were plenty of questions asked :DMostly they boiled down to "When will
you do [X] / will we ever have [Y] in the game?" The answer was invariably
"we'd like to do that but it is unlikely to be anytime soon"
There were a few questions asked where the answer was
1. Will there be a legacy lightsaber added to the game?
2. When will there be new items on the collector's Edition
vendor? "Soon and it will include new adaptive social items"
3. Will we be getting chat bubbles in the game?
4. When will we get guild progression? "Soon"
5. Can we have the guild member limit counted on a per
account basis instead of a per character basis? "Yes, soon, when guild
progression is added"
6. Something about moar tentacles but I can't remember the
After the Q&A session there was a draw for the various
raffle prizes (Star Wars related books, game guides, mouse mats, headsets and
similar stuff from Razer).
Everyone who went along was given a goodie bag
that included one or more items of clothing (republic or empire t-shirt, republic
or empire baseball cap) and a code for either a pet Taun Fawn or a Lhosan Manta
As you know our beloved leader Captain Rossco has stepped down. So it's only fitting that I start this post with a massive Thank You from myself and the whole community for making TGoP™ community what it is today. Also congratulations to all who have received their new ranks and colours - all are well earned and deserved.
I have been passed the helm of the TGoP™ and in all honesty it's a bit *scary* I have some very big boots to fill. I'm confident that with help of the council/officers team everything will carry on running as smoothly as it has been. With the TOR guild now in the very capable hands of Arawn/Annwn, I am free to concentrate on the multi-gaming goals of the community but this can only be achieved with your help and feedback. My door is always open and no matter what the problem, I will try and help in any way possible. If you can't find me because I'm AWOL or in a Friday night drunken stupor then feel free to pass on any concerns to my deputy Gaspodia.
With the success of the multi-gaming community this year I'm looking forward to the future and new adventures in new lands with my beloved TGoP™ family.
In anticipation of our new evil Overlord's state of the Union address, I thought I'd give you guys a quick heads up on the new appointments and who's who in our (500 strong!) beloved and glorious guild of uber nortyness ^^
MOAR changes are likely in the near future so keep your eyes glued to the forums for all the latest news... DON'T. BLINK.
Think your guild doesn't have enough officers to keep the troops in line (and/or supplied with beer and raid tips) and wanna help? Contact your guild leaders today, we are always on the lookout for a few good (read: evil) men (read: ponies of any gender).
