As previously mentioned, OTG takes a while to establish itself. So no, initially we won’t be trying to win King of the Hill on the choice spots. Our opponents will not realize our wily craftiness though, as we manipulate things from the shadows, working from out of the way places until it’s time to step in and take OVER THE WORLD!
Seriously though, we won’t be trying to keep up with the “Firsts”. You all know the types. First to do this, do that, win this, blah blah blah. Instead we’ll enjoy the game, work with Tenacious Gamers on larger scope events and end up being a concern to reckon with after most of the twitch kiddies have left for another, newer, shinier game.
It will be business as usual, we will be following Wheaton’s First Law (Don’t be a dick) and we’ll establish ourselves as a guild that won’t roll over and play dead but also a guild that isn’t out to destroy everyone else by next Tuesday. Obviously this title not only allows but demands PvP, caravan robbery, high seas piracy, etc so we’ll have to temper the chapter rules to fit the new world we find ourselves in. As in past games, we won’t be running amok, attacking everyone willy nilly but instead carefully choosing our targets so as to keep an impression of NOT being ganking jerks.
I feel fairly certain that we’ll have our hands full in PvP just chasing after the disreputable guilds on our server. Reacting to those that try to take advantage of us. Going after Bounties on those that have no self control and helping improve our in-game community, guarding ourselves and others from the toxic elements that are sure to show up!
This title should be a long term game where Reputation becomes a very important factor. It will be important to keep that in mind with everything we do. If we cultivate a Reputation as being fair, trustworthy and not willing to give in, then we’ll be in a perfect spot IMHO. With a Rep established like that, other players will think twice about ganking some OTG harvesters because they’ll know that if they do, the rest of our fighters will hound them to the ends of the earth until they apologize sufficiently and make enough reparations. With a good enough Rep, others will turn to us for help when they’re being taken advantage of. It’s always great to have a lot of friends outside of our own guild.
