  • Clan Bro Makes an Impact in Guild Wars
    NC Soft chose the European-based Clan Brotherhood as its Guild of the Week this week. Twitch gamers might recognize the title from other online tactical and shooter titles, and yes, it's the same guys. It's rumored that Clan Bro once challenged Clan Ya-Ya Sisterhood to a Team Arena, but Ya-Ya backed out for reasons that remain a secret.

    "Clan Brotherhood members follow four guiding principles and rules. Firstly, all members must work to foster harmony and an enjoyable atmosphere at all times. Secondly, it is important to seek out fun in the game; the guild believes that losing a closely fought match against a difficult opponent yields more enjoyment than seeking to win at all costs. Thirdly, any form of cheating or exploiting is strictly prohibited. Finally, members are expected to act in a mature and respectful way at all times. Along with these principles, the guild feels that experience playing together as a team is more valuable than the skill of any individual member.
    The Bro guild is active in the European PvP community, where they participate in the Erste deutsche Guild Wars Liga and will be fielding a team for the Electronic Sports League's 8on8 Guild-versus-Guild Opening Cup. While many Bro members seek competitive gameplay in Guild Wars, others prefer to pursue cooperative play, completing missions and quests, and exploring the world of Tyria. Members do not trade internally; instead they "gift" appropriate items freely, knowing the favor will be returned at a later date."

  • PvP, no monthly fee and now rewards too.
    The folks at ArenaNET are working on some fancy new Player versus Player (PvP) rewards for Guild Wars. Andrew Lloyd Weber did not issue a denial that he may be writing a 6 hour
    musical version of Guild Wars after reading the following:

    "Our next major update will be the introduction of PvP Rewards.
    We know that many players right now are having difficulty unlocking items, runes and skills for use in PvP. On our private test servers, we have been testing a new reward system that lets you unlock items, runes, and skills for your pvp only characters through kills and victories in PvP. You'll unlock things faster if you are more successful, but we aren't implementing this system just for the elite players. Our goal is that every player will be able to make progress through normal play."
