PainTrain is a competitive, organized and democratic based PvX guild made up of veteran gamers located throughout the United States and Canada. Our staff group is primarily over the age of 25 with an average of eight years gaming and P.C. experience each. Consisting of everything from retired professional gaming CAL-I / WSVG champions to gaming mod and application developers. Our guild is skilled, seasoned, fun to game with and be around. We invite you to check out our communications to get to know us a little better. Most of the time we can be found on our Teamspeak server. If you’d like to join us, please do so.
In Pain Train, we take having fun seriously. Our guild focus is about letting the member choose how competitive or casual they would like to be with the games they like to play. The only thing we ask is that our members show consistency in their gaming habits, use the social forms of communications we provide when playing and conversing with us as well as displaying common gaming sense and mutual respect.
We believe that competitive gaming is through strong positive community ethics, member consistency and proper implementation of strategies and techniques. Our commitment to this philosophy allows us to create the highest level of productive output and unity within the guild. We ask that all of our competitive members adhere to these qualities and understand that this is a commitment to our atmosphere.
Gaming is our passion and creating a relaxed, entertaining environment catered to social gaming camaraderie is what we want to provide. We ask that our members maintain a positive ethic and standing within the guild. We plan on a heavy guild event calendar so whenever our members are online we have something planned for them in cooperation with the guild. Our current goals consist of recruitment, leveling, mastering abilities and trade, as well as group PvE, Ops Raiding, PvP/WvW and crafting/ability workshops. Above all, we strive for an organized community while having fun doing it.
We ask that our members maintain a standard of attendance and communication that keeps a healthy guild culture. Being a regular members means being online consistently and staying involved with our activities. All of us work, have families and some of us have social lives outside of gaming. That is perfectly acceptable with us as long as you have a practical balance, playing with us.
Like any organized guild, our website is the hub for feedback, operations and participation. We ask that member sign up for the website in order to fill out the membership inquiry and be properly placed on the guild membership roster. If you have an Enjin account, you're almost there. Being signed up also gives you access to forums, news and events.
We require potential members to have Teamspeak prepared to use during the membership interview process and thereafter anytime they are online and playing with us.. TS helps us teach and convey strategy during guild events, lets us get to know you and you get to know everyone else in the guild and our community. A mic and Teamspeak is required.
Skill Achievements & Contribution
We want all of our members to get the most out of the MMO’s they participate in. We provide lessons and workshops on gaining a competitive edge in the games we play. Guild staff are designated to particular areas of their expertise to provide these assets to our members:
• PvE & Rare Attainment
Understanding how Damage/Control/Support (DCS) vs. the traditional Trinity rotations work in a group, reading game environments, story elements and group questing strategies will be a big part of what we do. Sometimes the best loot and abilities require some searching. We will provide puzzle and rare item attainment tours to those who want to know how to get ahead with their characters.
• Ops Raiding
Keeping our members up to speed on how group operations work and the role they will play is key. Members that have a strong grasp of combat situations and the abilities to deploy them, will be invited to boss and harder content raids on a regular basis. We will also be showing members who wish to participate, how we function through workshops.
• PvP & WvWvW
Competitive Player vs. Player and World vs. World will be a mainstay for PTX within the coming weeks after launch. We will have event coordinators and instructors provide PvP/WvW players the tools and skills they need to stay with the group and play a vital role during PvP sessions..
• Class/Skill/Crafting Abilities
Getting the most of any good MMORPG means understanding the structures from which players benefit from it. We will provide workshops for members who desire a greater understanding of how their character classes and skills work, crafting/gathering/market deployment, game mechanics how to benefit and contribute from them.
Commitment, Communication, Coordination, Positive Ethic. We are PainTrain.
