Jump aboard the addiction train, and no, we're not going to rehab!
Hopeless Addiction was founded day one of the World of Warcraft launch (yes, WoW). We have been together since through various games, and names. With the launch of Guild Wars 2, we decided to bring it back with a bang, and so far it's been a success.
What is Hopeless Addiction?
We're a guild of course!
You will find a lot of "hardcore" guilds out there that are rather strict. They enforce stupid rules on their members and often ran by a young person that can sometimes go on rampages. This isn't meant to target "all" hardcore guilds, but it does serve as a generalization to a lot of them.
You will also find a lot of "casual" guilds that are so laid back, people just don't do anything.
We are neither. We are the true definition of a "Guild." In the sense of gaming, that is, not real life...no we are not a secret organization or an all craftsmen guild (though we sort of are all craftsmen =P).
When most people think of a guild within an MMO, they think of a group of players who share the same ideals. They think of a place to call home within that game. Some think of family, some think of it was a gateway to other things. In a sense, we're all of that.
Here is a short list of what you will find at Hopeless Addiction:
* Players who share the same ideals as you.
* A feeling of "community"
* No die hard commitment to one thing or the other.
* No obligations, no feeling like you are obligated to help someone, or to do something.
* Fun environment to engage in conversations, to find help, and simply to have fun.
* Teamspeak 3 server for voice communication.
* Private forum to speak about guild activities.
We are all here to have fun, that's why we're playing a game. That is what HA is all about. If you aren't enjoying your time playing, you're doing something wrong.
WvWvW, sPvP, PvE
As stated above, we are not a hardcore or casual guild. We are a mix of both. We have players from all walks of life. Some of us enjoy PvP, some of us don't.
If you would like to participate in any PvP activities, feel free to do so. I even encourage it, along with promoting and organizing PvP parties/activities for the guild.
Just don't harass the players we have whom simply do not want to participate in pvp.
We do have plans, in the future, to set up teams for sPvP, Tournaments, and put together a really good WvW team to go in at set times.
A majority of our players are US players in the Central timezone. We typically play between 6pm~ and 3am.
Short list of rules and what we expect of/from you
*No exploiting, this will result in immediate removal from the guild and a report filed against you.
*No Cheating/Hacking, this should be self explanatory, same as above.
*Being an asshat, a douche, or simply causing problems will get you reprimanded and eventually removed. We're not here to cause problems for other players.
*I expect you to participate in guild activities. While there is no obligation as stated above, I do expect you to be "part" of the guild. Simply holding a position doesn't truly make you part of a guild.
Crafting and You
This shouldn't be a problem, yet I still feel the need to put it out there because there are some people who will do just this.
We are a guild, we aren't random players you come across to make a buck on. If a guildie needs something crafted and you can and offer to craft it, you do so free of charge, as long as they provide the materials. I'm not asking you to give your materials away for free, I'm asking you to craft for free.
Like what you see?
If you like what you're reading, you will enjoy what our guild has to offer. If you don't, well we're not for you.
Take advantage of the time you have now to freely transfer between servers to check us out. If you don't like what you see, leave and that's that.
