Are you tired of reading guild recruitment ads that use language like:
“Basically, our guild owns the game.”
“You must play our way and follow our guildmaster’s instructions.”
“You must have this experience with that.”
“We only accept members who are (insert age/software/class/character qualification here).”
Well, so are we. Welcome to Oooh [girl]! Oooh [girl] is a fun, friendly guild composed of casual and competitive players from around Europe (and even a few in the US). Our guild’s motto is: This is just a game. Sometimes it’s a silly game, sometimes it’s a competitive game, but it’s always a game and it’s always meant to be fun. If our name made you laugh, then this is probably the guild for you!
Oooh [girl] is a predominantly LGBT guild. No, we are not a “gay guild.” Yes, most of our members are gay. No, you don’t have to be gay to join us—but you do need to be gay-friendly. As I explained it to one straight member recently, “We aren’t so much pro-gay as much as we are anti-dumb.”
What can you expect from Oooh [girl]?
We’re of the firm belief that gaming is neither a full-time job nor a lifestyle. It’s a hobby.
I started this guild during headstart. Originally there were two real-life friends and myself, and we’re now expanding the guild to include other gay and gay-friendly players who like to have fun, and sometimes even compete in tournament PVP. We’re proud to have an international member base comprised of male and female players, both gay and straight, in several countries. Our guild chat and voice chat is conducted in English—if you’re not a native speaker, don’t worry. We don’t care if you have an accent or if your English is less than perfect. Everyone is welcome in our guild. We have a very active group of core players who are wonderful people—great fun, great conversation, and great laughs. They're not half bad at playing, either. :P
We have members interested in just about all aspects of the game. As a guild, our goals include:
World and dynamic events
World vs. World PvP
In addition to these on-going guild activities, we have members who actively engage in (and are happy to help you with) map completion (vistas, waypoints, story-mode dungeons, and points of interest), crafting, and leveling in general.
Oooh [girl] will never be a giant guild. We’re aiming to hold at a steady 30-40 active players in the European timezones, and 10-20 active US players. You will never be anonymous, left out, or forgotten. Your contributions will always matter!
We have excellent out-of-game support, as well. Our web site features forums, private messaging, member profiles, and a guild event calendar with (optional) reminder notifications. We don’t expect you to log in every day just to find out what’s going on, nor do we expect you to spend 5 hours a week digging through forums to find activities or information you need. Feel free to visit our web site at http://o3h.does-it.net.
Currently, we’re playing on the Vabbi server. Character transfers are currently free, so feel free to give us a chat and come on over, if you like.
If you and your friends are interested in joining us, but aren’t on Vabbi and don’t want to transfer, that’s ok, too. GW2 allows you to join a guild from *any* server. You’ll be able to join us for PvE and PvP via the guesting feature (ArenaNet has stated that they are introducing this feature in the near future). You won’t be able to join us for WvW, however.
Oooh [girl] is a social guild with a very social play style. As with any social environment, people tend to become friends and sometimes talk about their personal lives, either in guild chat or on voice chat. If you’re not comfortable playing with gay guys and gals, if you frequently call people the “f” word while playing (the six-letter one), or if you just plain dislike gay people (hey, you’re entitled), then we’re probably not the best fit for you.
We don’t have an arrogant or exhaustive application process; everyone is welcome to join. We do generally have a quick, 2–3 minute chat with interested parties prior to sending an invitation. If you’re interested, just visit our web site (link below) and fill out the form. Your information will be sent to an officer who will then contact you via email or in-game to set up a time for a quick chat and an invite.
Just a quick bump to let everyone know we’re still open to new members. We had some more really great, fun people join yesterday. We’ve got a bunch of people in the EU time zones, and would love to have a few more Canadians/Americans for our few NA members to hang out with in their time zones, as well.
Great response so far! We’re nearing 30 members and still growing. Check our our site. You can apply online or in-game. Oneth Rha in-game (whisper or email) or apply on our site: http://o3h.does-it.net.
Hey guys, thanks for all the whispers and support! Our core group has really grown and solidified over the past two weeks. We have about 10 core members who play on a daily basis for most of the evening, and about 10 more who are on daily for shorter periods of time. In total, we have just over 30 members now.
We've started scheduling regular group events and activities, and we have a bunch of spontaneous stuff that goes on as well daily.
Stop by our web site and join. We'd love to have you!
We have 35 active members now, and are still accepting new people. We have some exploration dungeons going on this week, as well as a lot of WvW. Come to Vabbi and check us out! Server transfers are now locked to once every 24 hours, but you won't be disappointed--I promise! Visit our web site for more information and to join: http://o3h.does-it.net.
Hey guys! We're seated over 40 members, and are going to be closing membership in the next few weeks. We have a wonderful group of core people, and are starting to get our schedule in order for tournaments, wvw, and dungeon runs. Come be a part of our community! We'd love to have you!
