Lately things have been slacking in Outbreak and it is time for us to inject some fresh ideas / new blood into the guild.
I have 3 guild ranks going spare / 4 if I remove the need for the master rank. I am looking for ideas on Ranks. For example we could give raid teams a rank and link the ranks to allow access to guild bank tabs. There is also the possibility of allowing raid repairs or guild summons to ranks. I am looking for feedback and ideas for this and ask you to take a look at this thread.
Lately I have had people whispering and asking in guild if we have an imperial alliance this may be due to the dark v light and people having more reason to play imperial classes. It may also be due to the influx of players who have returned to the game. As it stands we have no alliance.
I would like to inform you that I have been approached by “Don’t Forget me” they have asked if we would consider offering a home for their republic characters and in return they would offer a home for our imperial characters.
Don’t Forget me are a guild that like to do conquest and pvp – In terms of the content Outbreak offer to guildies this has to be our weakest area. As you know I won’t force people to go all out for conquest – we have been there done that have the achievements, sweated blood sweat and tears / broken friendships over purple pixels / conquest grinding. Those in the guild who still need conquest achievement could get their fix in Don’t Forget Me.
Outbreak’s main focus is PVE. We have our sixteen man Saturdays, Stellina’s Story time and Mad Mondays that’s is something “Don’t forget me” consider their weak area so we can offer their players who are looking to see the pve aspect of the game that opportunity subject to them meeting our sign up requirements.
If such an alliance took place I would like to be clear on expectations:
- You will have somewhere to guild your imperial characters
- Some Don’t Forget Me Members will have the rank to invite their members to Outbreak
- Some Outbreak members will have the rank to invite their members to don’t forget me.
- This will be a very casual loose alliance
- We can join each other’s websites if we wish to do so
- Participate in each other’s events by signing up on website calendars
- We will promise to operate in each guild in line with guild rules – for example any Don’t Forget Me member would join Outbreak and abide by Outbreaks rules, we promise to abide by Don’t Forget Me guild rules when in Don’t Forget me
- Guild management will not have any authority or influence over the other guild – for example if we agreed to go ahead with the alliance myself or any Outbreak officer would just be a casual rank / member in Don’t Forget Me. Their guild management will have no influence over the way Outbreak operate.
- If there are any sign’s of conflict or things are not running smoothly the alliance will be disbanded amicably.
As you know I do not like to dictate what we do as a guild and your opinions matter so I urge you all to vote on this poll “Should we make an alliance with Don’t Forget Me” I will let the poll run for a week and then we will reach our decision.

Sixteen Man Saturday
We had a great nights raiding in Scum and Villainy 16 man Hard mode. I was delighted that the group formed by 7.55pm everyone was on team speak and clearly people had researched the tactics as we one shotted all the bosses, the whole raid ran smoothly.
I have to send my deepest apologies to Ayvin who was online waiting for his invite last night and I somehow missed him in the guild list. I would like to remind everyone that co-ordinating 16man’s can be quite hectic with creating the group people whispering me, people talking on ts, trying to invite as per the sign ups on the calendar. If you are signed up and have not got your invite please be on TeamSpeak and say something speak up, I always give assist to everyone in the raid team and open the group making it public so people can join easily. I would like to avoid these mix ups from happening again in the future.
After we completed Scum and Villainy we moved on to the Eyeless and killed it on Story mode and hard mode it was a great night and I thank everyone for their attendance.
Here are some screen shots from Sixteen Man Saturday
