Getting closer to the next BWE. Now is a great time to join a guild and to have a chance to play with your new guildmates a bit before launch! Come check out SoA if you like the idea of winning in WvW.
We have great plans for the upcoming beta! Come join us!

Last BWE is almost upon us. I believe we still have some roster slots to fill out, although recruitment has been closed on a couple of classes. If you're interested in being a part of a WvW winning guild and part of a coordinated alliance, now is the time to apply. I'm 100% sure it will be more difficult to secure a spot on the roster of top rated WvW guilds come release.
We have re-opened recruitment for the mesmer and elementalist. Elementalist is limited recruitment, meaning you need impress us to a higher degree in the application process. Mesmer is opened as per usual acceptance standards.
Bear in mind that due to recruiting for these classes, you're locked into these classes for a certain period of time post-launch.

With the lack of current gameplay availability, how would one "impress" you?
I'm also confused by your initial recruitment statement that says "tight-knit", yet it asks for 50-60 people. Working in an office of 300, I can tell you that I barely know the names of the 20 people on my team, let alone anyone beyond that. The size you're asking for doesn't seem to be tight at all, but instead a zerg group. Mind you even if you split it in half you have two small raid-size groups of a atleast 20.
And, overall your recruitment statement doesn't provide information on how the guild would be useful to someone to join. Ya, I know that people shouldn't just join guilds to gain something out of it, but right now it seems more like endentured servitude when saying that soloing is fround upon and that grouping is almost a must. This feeling is only exasperated when your recruiting process requires application, interview, and the whole 9yards of a JOB hiring process. I thought it was a game, not a 2nd job?
I am sorry you feel that way, but being tight knit means we don't let just anyone in, and it means that we have the integrity to last beyond one game, and NOT create a new guild for each and every game we play. The majority of us have been together for a long time, and we are able to hang out in our VoIP without needing a large titled game to be present and enjoy one anothers company.
If you feel 60 people is a zerg, then so be it. I'm laughing at that but to each is own. However, if you take the time, you can almost think about how on avarage perhaps 40 people are on at once pvping ( wvw ) making that 2 groups. I do not call that a zerg, especially in todays guild environments.
There are plenty of games out there that we are playing in the mean time, that are either free or easily available, very self explanitory. Obviously our recruitment information has given people PLENTY of information to join, leaving you in minority. Especially since we have pretty much reached our recruitment goals.
If you do not like what you see, why even post? Trolling in a guilds recruitment thread is a reflection on you, not me - since I am obviously running a successful guild in a successful alliance. Move along - I am not interested in anyone that thinks getting into a guild should be an easy task - I don't recruit sheep. There are things greater then yourself.

Seeing as to how gameplay is limited, I meant impress on paper and through the interview.
You can be tight-knit with a guild containing our numbers. It's all in how the guild operates and how players interact. We don't just log on to TS to play GW2. Our members are very active on our TS, and we play many games together and chat it up on a daily basis. You may not be able to tell the names of people in your office, but being military I can tell you hundreds of names of the people in my unit. Not that the guild works like a military unit, but it's an example that how members know and connect with each other in a guild depends on how the guild operates. If you think 50-60 or even 80 people is a zerg group based on the number, then I question your experience in the PvP side of the MMO genre, especially where siege is concerned.
The guild as a whole is selfless. Our players would give the gear off of our backs in-game for one another, and beyond that the shirts off of our backs in real life. What we provide players is a healthy environment with fun people to hang around and play with, with the coordination and capability to get things done. And our recruitment process with the application and interview is on par with any guild that's worth its salt. You show me a guild that doesn't have an application and/or interview process, and I'll show you a guild that won't last or will be rife with drama and a lack of coordination. Basically, you question the things that go against the zerg mentality whilst calling us a zerg. Once again, I just flat out question your experience in the genre.
We still have some space left for those looking to roll mesmers or elementalists! As Piratess has stated, you will be expected to lock into these classes for a period of time post-launch, but everyone is more than welcome to make alts and level them up down the road! We want our members to be at their peak for WvW, and that means focusing on making their mains as strong as possible.
We had an immensely successful experience in the final beta weekend event - if you're looking to join a guild that's gearing to take on and dominate WvW, then fill out an application with us!
Another great day in [SoA]!
Head on over to our awesome website and check us out! I promise we dont bite
