I'm pleased to announce the launch of our "Legion for a Day" Program.

Now, anyone that is interested, can spend a day as a member of the most powerful guild in the game. Maybe you want to see what Legion is really like from the inside or want strategy and build tips from the best in the game. Maybe you want to flag for Shroud in an hour then zerg raids the rest of the day or get some tough elite favor. Maybe you want to match your skills against the best the game has to offer or just evaluate if you and Legion would be a good fit for each other.

Well, here's your chance.

Benefits include, but are not limited to:
* Legion Guild Invitation (you set the 24 hr period)
* Ventrilo access
* Interact with Legion members as one of their own (help others or suggest what you want to do)
* You can choose to take the star and improve your leadership skills.
* Or, you can choose to be carried along for a day of easy completions and loot.
* Preferential access to Legion run quests and raids (we kick the pugger for you).
* Chance to roll on all Legion loot pulls.
* Access to experts for build critique and strategy advice.
* Freebies - let us know what gear you need and potentially get a handout or two.
* If you're currently blacklisted, here's your chance to get back into good graces with Legion.
* Provides an opportunity to show your skill and personality as a potential fit for full Legion membership.

Fees:
* Our introductory fee is 25 Major Mana Pots (35 if currently blacklisted).
* Based on demand, the fee is subject to increase without notice (will never decrease), so act soon.

Terms of Service:
* We reserve the right to reject requests with no reasons required.
* Joining in on ribbing is one thing, but griefing is another. We have zero tolerance for griefing and your membership will be immediately revoked with no return of fees.
* You are treated the same as other Legion members, although you can request the star or refuse the star. Please note that Legion members are not required to accommodate what you specifically want to do any more than they do for other Legion members. However, as with all Legion members, puggers will be asked to leave to make room for you.
* Although you will have full access to Ventrilo, if you come in to just cause trouble, then Legion members have the option of squelching you or moving to a different channel. This is the same option they have with all members.
* Any trouble reported by a Legion member will be acted on quickly. Most likely, an officer will just give you a heads-up or warning. If your behavior is severe enough though, your membership will be immediately revoked (with reason(s) given) and with no return of fees.

To sign up, please send me a PM and include the names of your alts and the 24 hour period in which you wish to be scheduled.

Any questions can be PM'd to me or posted here.

The 25mana pot entry fee almost makes me curious enough to roll a character on thelanis to see if legion is really all you try to make it out to be... but then that character wouldnt have 25 mana pots heh.

Wow, this is really sweet! I'm super excited and can't wait. Access to experts and more!

One question before I sign up - any hidden costs? For example, as a 24hr member of Legion, am I required to self-promote/hype myself and the guild on the forums?

Also, is there a free trial system or a paypal option?

Cute. It actually looks like an interesting way to potentially recruit.
Yeah, there's a fee - but you know how it is, if you can come up with 25 major mnemonics, if it doesn't break you and you didn't buy them for real $$ (which they'll figure out quickly when you're having difficulty equipping that +1 chain shirt on your "tank")...it's kinda irrelevant.

Good luck.

Haha that's a joke right? Oh wait...you're serious...:eek:

No way in Hell I would give someone 25 mana pots to join their group...sounds like a FRAT!

Since I think most of Thelanis is blacklisted, looks like a lot folks will have to pony up 35 mana pots.

For clarification: Are these major mana pots or will Lesser's work as well? :D

I personally wouldn't want to run with legion. Pretty arrogant doesn't help anyone from what i've seen.Others may like them but sounds like something legion would do. I'ts just a game. Makes u kind of wonder if legions either made up of people who has nothing but time on their hands to play 24 7, C.E.O. s who r mad cause they dont get their mil bonus so they bring this to the game world, or hmm maybe plat farmer warlords??

I believe you missed the small print;

*As a member of Legion all the worlds ill's shall be blamed on you including, but not limited to, swine flu, Iran's botched election's, swine flu, the recession, GM's bankruptcy, British people's bad dental care, George W.Bush, failed raids, swine flu.

I don't think they're so much arrogant as impatient. As long as you hold your own, pay attention, do the right things, even if you make a mistake or two, they're very reasonable folks. Even the ones from Canada.

The ghetto version is to send tells to people in Legion and hope they will include you in their groups. It's free, but you miss all the in-Vent mayhem and might get booted for a guildie.

Hmmm, maybe I should institute microtransactions? :D

BTW, loving the responses so far. And, yes, this is for real. If you don't have the MAJOR mana pots but can pony up something of equal value (e.g. large ingredients, dragon scales, +2 Tomes, etc.) then send me a tell and maybe we can work something out. No promises though.

I think you guys should offer the initial membership for free, but charge to unlock certain advice, gear, and raid content. :D

06-17-2009, 04:44 PM
I approve and there's so many possibilities that can come from this idea (other guilds take note). IE adopt a new guy for a day, show him what your guilds about advice etc but less the manna pot charge of course.
Don't forget to trademark it of as Legions idea first though .

06-17-2009, 04:57 PM
I put mine in the mail, I can assume we're all bound by rule right?

Though the first handout I'll need is my Major pots back...

I'm just trying to figure out who is riding who's coattails on that one. Any further comments might be considered bringing up bad blood, so we won't bring up charging for completions of easy quests and the like.

I honestly thought this was a joke up till this point... As a person that does value the hardcore members in Legion I really didn't think you were that hard up for mana pots that you would need to sell your services to get them. You must either be in retail or marketing IRL though as this is a very well laid out plan to get them. Wish you all the best though.

what is funny is I bet that the price of major mana pots went up a bit from our "non turbine" online stores...

also I think our man ren is serious ..... I wonder just how many out there are going to pony up the pots to see if legion would except them.... I bet the "haters" would be shocked at how many quitely pm or find ren in game...... this sounds like a sarcos idea though....reeks of him...

This is real...trust me lol. But dont get a bad taste in your mouth for all of Thelanis because of a post from 1 guild. The entire server does not have that kind of attitude....I'd like to believe that we are pretty friendly with plenty of puggin going on. Also....and im sure plenty will agree that there are some good guys in there.

Hmm... if Mod 9 is still a ways off, I might actually take them up on that offer just cuz it'd be either fun or funny, but entertaining nonetheless. :)
Not to mention the fact that the mem pots would be going to a good cause, considering I'm fairly sure they'd put them to a much more efficient use than any of my characters would.

*points to sig* Does that count as being blacklisted? :o
(You can pm me the answer to that if you'd prefer to keep any third-parties from throwing fuel on the fire)

Even if I did move to Thelanis I wouldn't join this guild just on principle. If my good looks and charm is not enough for exceptance into a guild its their loss not mine. Sounds to me like a power hungry greedy bragart blowing wind. If someone has to buy their way into your guild just for 24 hours you honestly aren't worth the plats the plat farmers are selling.

Hmmm I do believe it all depends on who is giving the hug. ;) (I have a pic to illustrate, but I think that would be the final point on my forum account, so Ill leave that for houset). :eek:

Well I definitely think we have thread of the week here. Good way to get pots for the new mod coming up, and hell I'm betting on even some of your blacklisted folks forking over the pots. Good times ahead I am sure.

((Some of these responses had me falling over the chair laughing, like paying more pots to be an officer or guild leader, or the free system but pay for advice or to run a quest, etc))

Several responses - from someone not affiliated with Legion: 1) as a visitor to our server forum, you lack context. This is classic preening by the classic bad boy guild. 2) It's humor (although the offer is serious), 3) they are actually that skilled in spite of the bragging. Otherwise they would not have so many 1st server & 1st world-wide raid completions to their name.

PS: Ren, I agree with Lost - the free-to-play scheme is brilliant!

Oh, technical question - if someone applies, do you let them know if they are blacklisted before or after they hand over the 25 pots?

Records - so are you guys going to keep statistics and post them - that would still not be naming anyone who participated but I would love to know, how many people took you up on the offer, what their play was like etc.

Also are you going to "record" any of the questing? Some people would be okay with that and I am sure others wouldn't ....

Well I definitely think we have thread of the week here. Good way to get pots for the new mod coming up, and hell I'm betting on even some of your blacklisted folks forking over the pots. Good times ahead I am sure.

((Some of these responses had me falling over the chair laughing, like paying more pots to be an officer or guild leader, or the free system but pay for advice or to run a quest, etc))

Hmm... if Mod 9 is still a ways off, I might actually take them up on that offer just cuz it'd be either fun or funny, but entertaining nonetheless. :)
Not to mention the fact that the mem pots would be going to a good cause, considering I'm fairly sure they'd put them to a much more efficient use than any of my characters would.

*points to sig* Does that count as being blacklisted? :o
(You can pm me the answer to that if you'd prefer to keep any third-parties from throwing fuel on the fire)

We'd love to add you to the list of participants. Normal fee applies for now, but as we book up, I'd expect it to go up.

You really nailed it. It's all about fun and just doing something different and entertaining while we wait for Mod 9. The mana pots will indeed be put to good use for our server. Not that we need much help against the inferior servers. I think it's funny that they troll over here. I've never even visited another server forum. It must reek of boredom in the lesser communities.

Really though, the fee is so that the participant has some skin in the game so we don't get flooded with riff-raff looking for trouble. I'd rather have paying riff-raff looking for trouble.

Also are you going to "record" any of the questing? Some people would be okay with that and I am sure others wouldn't ....

Is there maybe a pro-rated rate for say by the hour. Some of your fancier motels will do this. Maybe a menu of cost for certain things. You could let someone know that they NEED to reroll for say 5 mana pots. Also being friendly with canadians could get you a discount of say 3 extra mana pots.

DOes secretly worshipping the DARK LORD get any discounts?

I'm pleased to announce the launch of our "Legion for a Day" Program.

Now, anyone that is interested, can spend a day as a member of the most powerful guild in the game. Maybe you want to see what Legion is really like from the inside or want strategy and build tips from the best in the game. Maybe you want to flag for Shroud in an hour then zerg raids the rest of the day or get some tough elite favor. Maybe you want to match your skills against the best the game has to offer or just evaluate if you and Legion would be a good fit for each other.

Well, here's your chance.

Benefits include, but are not limited to:
* Legion Guild Invitation (you set the 24 hr period)
* Ventrilo access
* Interact with Legion members as one of their own (help others or suggest what you want to do)
* You can choose to take the star and improve your leadership skills.
* Or, you can choose to be carried along for a day of easy completions and loot.
* Preferential access to Legion run quests and raids (we kick the pugger for you).
* Chance to roll on all Legion loot pulls.
* Access to experts for build critique and strategy advice.
* Freebies - let us know what gear you need and potentially get a handout or two.
* If you're currently blacklisted, here's your chance to get back into good graces with Legion.
* Provides an opportunity to show your skill and personality as a potential fit for full Legion membership.

Fees:
* Our introductory fee is 25 Major Mana Pots (35 if currently blacklisted).
* Based on demand, the fee is subject to increase without notice (will never decrease), so act soon.

Terms of Service:
* We reserve the right to reject requests with no reasons required.
* Joining in on ribbing is one thing, but griefing is another. We have zero tolerance for griefing and your membership will be immediately revoked with no return of fees.
* You are treated the same as other Legion members, although you can request the star or refuse the star. Please note that Legion members are not required to accommodate what you specifically want to do any more than they do for other Legion members. However, as with all Legion members, puggers will be asked to leave to make room for you.
* Although you will have full access to Ventrilo, if you come in to just cause trouble, then Legion members have the option of squelching you or moving to a different channel. This is the same option they have with all members.
* Any trouble reported by a Legion member will be acted on quickly. Most likely, an officer will just give you a heads-up or warning. If your behavior is severe enough though, your membership will be immediately revoked (with reason(s) given) and with no return of fees.

To sign up, please send me a PM and include the names of your alts and the 24 hour period in which you wish to be scheduled.

Any questions can be PM'd to me or posted here.

Is this a serious post? This seems so "I am full of myself".

Curious Ren;

Is this 24 in-game hours or real time hours?

I ask because I know maybe a handful of people outside of Legion that would actually make use of the 24 real time hours... If this is to "vamp-up" casual players we may need to target them on their playtime schedual. Most casual players only play 2-4 hours a night or less.

I think wed get alot more offers with the in-game hours, which means more majors for us. However, if your firm in your decision I really have no trouble with either scenario.

24 real time hours (1 calendar day). We could consider 8 game hours though or something equivalent.

At this point, our list of participants is full.

I'm therefore doubling the fee (50 Major Mana Pots, 70 for blacklisters). I realize that this effectively puts the program on hold until we get the first couple waves taken care of and we can then reset the fee.

I don't want to take too many people at once. I don't anyone to have to share their day with anyone else unless they choose to.

I'm really looking forward to it. We have a lot of fun things planned for the people signed up.

If players on Thelanis are resorting to this there is some major issues on Thelanis. I would seriously consider not playing on Thelanis any longer and move to another server. In fact all of the other servers do not have this type of players or guilds as a whole. Switch servers non-Legion players maddmatt70 is right the PUGs on Khyber are just as good or better and we will not charge you anything.

That is the pleasure of recruiting. Personally I think any guild that doesn't actively recruit is going to die sooner or later. You have to keep the blood fresh.

While it seems silly to me the whole thing makes some sense for a raiding guild. The entry fee shows some commitment and you need that for a raiding guild. Guilds should recruit in a way that reflects their values and in many ways this seems to do exactly that.

I've taken issue with legion folks on the forums but all the legion folks I've actually played with were nice folks. I was in a pug led by a legion member the other day who I though was especially cool. He had the attitude that his leadership skills could get any party through any quest (pretty much) and even offered up an apology when the group faltered for not providing good enough direction to the relatively green crew he had assembled. That's impressive in my book. And he did indeed get the group through the series we were playing even if it wasn't as quick and efficient as hoped. He stuck it through and made sure everyone worked together as a team.

In the spirit of annonymity, I won't answer directly. However, Legion has recently added five probationary recruits from various sources. One has failed to make the cut. The others are still being evaluated.

I will say that quite a bit of Raid loot went to participants who otherwise would not have had the opportunity to get those items.

"Kung-Fu Grip" is so '70s. Legion Action Figures come with "Vorpal Hacks" and a full compliment of "Zergonomic Enhancements".

Hate a legion member? Have them removed from the guild for 24hrs. Make them suffer and pug like everyone else. I'm sure Womp would have fun kicking people. Make it 20 Majors for a normal player and 30 for an officer.

Imagine your chance to make fun of Renegade as he sits outside the hound waiting for a pug to pick him up, only to find out it's Legion and they kick him halfway to the quest for a guildie.

I'm pleased to announce the launch of our "Legion for a Day" Program.

Now, anyone that is interested, can spend a day as a member of the most powerful guild in the game. Maybe you want to see what Legion is really like from the inside or want strategy and build tips from the best in the game. Maybe you want to flag for Shroud in an hour then zerg raids the rest of the day or get some tough elite favor. Maybe you want to match your skills against the best the game has to offer or just evaluate if you and Legion would be a good fit for each other.

Well, here's your chance.

Benefits include, but are not limited to:
* Legion Guild Invitation (you set the 24 hr period)
* Ventrilo access
* Interact with Legion members as one of their own (help others or suggest what you want to do)
* You can choose to take the star and improve your leadership skills.
* Or, you can choose to be carried along for a day of easy completions and loot.
* Preferential access to Legion run quests and raids (we kick the pugger for you).
* Chance to roll on all Legion loot pulls.
* Access to experts for build critique and strategy advice.
* Freebies - let us know what gear you need and potentially get a handout or two.
* If you're currently blacklisted, here's your chance to get back into good graces with Legion.
* Provides an opportunity to show your skill and personality as a potential fit for full Legion membership.

Fees:
* Our introductory fee is 25 Major Mana Pots (35 if currently blacklisted).
* Based on demand, the fee is subject to increase without notice (will never decrease), so act soon.

Terms of Service:
* We reserve the right to reject requests with no reasons required.
* Joining in on ribbing is one thing, but griefing is another. We have zero tolerance for griefing and your membership will be immediately revoked with no return of fees.
* You are treated the same as other Legion members, although you can request the star or refuse the star. Please note that Legion members are not required to accommodate what you specifically want to do any more than they do for other Legion members. However, as with all Legion members, puggers will be asked to leave to make room for you.
* Although you will have full access to Ventrilo, if you come in to just cause trouble, then Legion members have the option of squelching you or moving to a different channel. This is the same option they have with all members.
* Any trouble reported by a Legion member will be acted on quickly. Most likely, an officer will just give you a heads-up or warning. If your behavior is severe enough though, your membership will be immediately revoked (with reason(s) given) and with no return of fees.

To sign up, please send me a PM and include the names of your alts and the 24 hour period in which you wish to be scheduled.

Any questions can be PM'd to me or posted here.


Do I get a discount for being a Legionnaire for over a year???:D

All Legion members and thier action figure follow the Sparta code. If they are weak or gimp they are cast out over unforgiving seas, never to be seen from again.

Of course as in RL the rich get richer, in game the uber do indeed get more uber. I guess all I can say is a great quote:

Unfortunately, the volume of participants became too much to handle and we decided to end the program. We definitely had a lot of fun with the folks that signed up and there wasn't a single person that complained about the cost. I'd say everyone ended up with at least one piece of raid loot they wouldn't normally have received. One guy I remember got three raid loot items including a +3 tome and that's just during the time I was online.

So I am really lame, and don't have enough Major mana potions to buy my way into your guild for a day.

I am however very "driven to excel" and I love to RP so I think I would be a great addition to your guild.

I read somewhere on the forums that you guys like to raid while wearing bunny outfits. I currently don't have one, but my neighbor had a furry fetish, so I am sure I can barrow one from her.

It is.. well being generous so.. guild level is something everyone can see and verify. You can't claim a guild level you don't have. Anyone can claim to be the first level 20 half-orc, but how would anyone prove that? but you can claim to have for instance a level 70 guild, and anyone from the person who joined on the first day to the person who's played for years, can see whether or not your guild is level 70.

So it's an independent, verifiable metric of measurement that is independent of opinion and conjecture.

the guild level is just that, the guild level. if you quest regularly with either a small or large enough guild everyone reaches certain guildlevels. so the small guild of lvl 20s that does constant epics and high level raiding gets to the same level as fast as the large guild of f2p that never play beyond lvl 10 and farm irestone inlet because of the fat lootz.

its just a indication of constant questing/raiding around or above charlevel.

sure, if you are lvl 70, it shows that you are lvl 70. but what relevance does it have other than different options for your guildleader to pay cash to turbine?

if you play the game you know what guilds are in your "league" that you can blindly invite into your raids/quests. if you don't know the guild but see a high guildlevel, its a sign to back off (at least for me).

the guild level is just that, the guild level. if you quest regularly with either a small or large enough guild everyone reaches certain guildlevels. so the small guild of lvl 20s that does constant epics and high level raiding gets to the same level as fast as the large guild of f2p that never play beyond lvl 10 and farm irestone inlet because of the fat lootz.

its just a indication of constant questing/raiding around or above charlevel.

sure, if you are lvl 70, it shows that you are lvl 70. but what relevance does it have other than different options for your guildleader to pay cash to turbine?

if you play the game you know what guilds are in your "league" that you can blindly invite into your raids/quests. if you don't know the guild but see a high guildlevel, its a sign to back off (at least for me).

That leaves us without a measure of "greatness" that is independent, verifiable and free of opinion.

I bet that level 70 guild can't run Tower of despair in 9 min but I know Legion can....

It was even verified with a screen shot in the achievement section.... along with an 11 min shroud, 4 min hound elite etc etc

The current renown system only benefits small or large guilds and really any noob can loot a chest

Yeah, it seems to me that there are plenty of other measurable, verifiable ways of measuring greatness, that have MUCH more to do with in-game/in-quest ability than how quickly you can loot renown.

There's a separate thread with about a jabillion posts explaining why guild renown does not equate to guild power. Find that one and do your homework.

We figured this out early during the race to GL20 on Thelanis. Legion just did their usual high end zerging of raids and epic content. When we got up to about level 15 or so, we realized that Bane(?) was a couple levels ahead of us. So, we took a day and a half out of running challenging content to farm Epic Von 2 chests like everyone else was doing. Boring as hell and 0 challenge, but we quickly overtook them and was GL 20 well before anyone else on Thelanis.

Another server made 20 before us, but in reality if we would have chosen to farm chests from day 1, we would have reached the goal at least 3 days earlier than anyone else. The point is not to say we should have done that or sour grapes. The point is that the renown system is severely flawed when it comes to measuring guild power, so we wrote it off as a guild goal.

One can argue the key measurements equating to the most powerful guild. Keep in mind that Power does not equal Quality. Meaning, you don't have to be nice to be powerful.

Another important note is that being small does not give you a bonus to being powerful. Quite the opposite actually. There are many guilds twice as large as Legion. If this allows them to knockout more elite/epic content and gain worldwide firsts then they are more powerful than us. There are no weight classes in DDO. Well unless you consider the flawed renown system.

Here are some general qualities to measure guild Power. The weighting of each is debatable as well as the list itself. Again, there's an entire thread devoted to the obvious.

* Most epic quest/raid completions
* Most elite quest/raid completions
* Percent success rate for epic/elite content
* Lowest average completion time for epic/elite content
* Most worldwide firsts
* Most server firsts
* Other significant accomplishments (e.g. first to solo something extremely difficult to solo)

By the way, none of these factors are included in guild renown. Renown misses the mark entirely wrt guild power.

To answer, how do I know that Legion is the most powerful guild in the game, I offer "It just is". Kind of like, why is the ocean wet? It just is. Everyone knows it is. Everyone agrees that it is. You can set criteria for wetness, but in the end the ocean will be most wet, just as Legion is most powerful.

If you need more meat, then take my sig for example. You will see a slew of worldwide firsts and also other accomplishments such as first to cap a permatoon. Someone mentioned these are easy accomplishments based on dedication alone. I disagree. People had been trying to cap a perma-toon for years with no success. There is an entire guild dedicated to doing so. It took more than dedication to make it happen. It took power, especially when considering it was accomplished in less than a month in a 3 man group.

Those accomplishments represent just 1 member of Legion. Multiply that out by the others in Legion with time records, firsts, solo achievements, etc. Then compare that list to other guilds. I doubt you'll even find another guild with as many achievements as any one of us alone. A fact is a fact. The ocean is wet. Legion is most powerful.

In fact the power argument has yet again started based on guild renown and first achievements and while I find it funny to have ppl screaming over who is strongest and I giggle, I'll go with smartest anyday. I mean would I prefer to go with the guild that throws a ton of pots at a quest to claim first completion to the point they have to charge an entrance fee to make it up, or a guild that completes just as easily with no resources....hmm....you're welcome to the pots...I don't need them since most first time runs I do and most accomplishments are done without hefty fees ;)

GFU for admitting Legion is the strongest guild. The first step in recovery is always admitting the obvious.

1. We have accomplishments and can take pride in them. You do not.
2. We get notariety. People know Legion. You are not known.
3. We get the best players in the game striving to join Legion versus having to search them out. Top players do not contact you to join your guild (assuming you are in one).
4. We get the benefit of the doubt. If Legion says it's true then it probably is. People scanning a thread for an answer would stop at all Legion posts among others of course, just not yours.
5. We get taken into strong groups over non-Legion players. If the party leader had you or a Legion guy to take for the last spot, you would be passed-over everytime.
6. Whenever we are in game, we are always with a full team of the best players in the game. Therefore we have quicker access to loot and more chances at powerful loot than you do.
7. We get the honor of having a target on our backs and all the fun that goes with beating down thin-skinned, wanna-bees that want to complain about Legion being a bunch of meanies.

It is.. well being generous so.. guild level is something everyone can see and verify. You can't claim a guild level you don't have. Anyone can claim to be the first level 20 half-orc, but how would anyone prove that? but you can claim to have for instance a level 70 guild, and anyone from the person who joined on the first day to the person who's played for years, can see whether or not your guild is level 70.

So it's an independent, verifiable metric of measurement that is independent of opinion and conjecture.

Please, I would really like to know how Renown enables guilds to complete raids and epics timely, efficiently and first. I would also love to see an explanation how a 1000 member guild with harbour newbs, with 60 renown can translate that renown into epic completions.

How is Renown in anyway a measurement of anything other than how many chests are opened.

Now yes, "greatest" of anything is open for debate, as there are so many variables people can argue about. However, renown has no value in measuring a guild's ability to get the job done whether that job be completing epics, permadeath or roleplaying.

We base our member worth on how much renown we can exploit out of them.

Just because Legion gauges players on things like...accomplishments...phhhtt....does not, in any way, mean that's the best.

Some guilds might like the color of the toon's docent. Other's might invite them based on their name, or that joke they told in that quest that one night.

Other guilds might invite them solely on the basis that they eat cheetos in their underwear during boss fights. I'm not saying it's right, I'm not saying it's the best method...I just heard this was done okay!!!!!

Your question was "so what do you get for being there that I don't?". I believe I answered accordingly.

In relation to a need to defend Legion. Legion is fine by me either way. I am not in Legion so my question was what do you have in Legion that I don't have where I am. This post of yours I'm currently quoting relates better.



1. We get to take pride in Legion's long list of world firsts and other accomplishments that are exclusive to our guild alone.

A positive most definitely, but not every first or accomplishment is Legion's. And not every accomplishment or first is public knowledge....we have seen the proof before.



2. We get notariety. People know Legion. We are exclusively at the top of the list of well-known guilds.


Aah but noteriety works both ways. being so well known and/or hated means one of two things, less chance of certain groupings or better chance in others. Although one of your original posts you say you fill up with guildies and pug now and then so being at the top of well known guilds doesn't have that much bonus. I myself rarely Pug and only run with guildies so being at the top of well known guilds isn't that much of a bonus.



3. We get the honor of having a target on our backs and all the fun that goes with beating down thin-skinned, wanna-bees that want to complain about Legion being a bunch of meanies. This is exclusive to Legion.

That I will definitely give to you. Certain Legion attitudes are not very becoming for me but it doesn't matter either way. If I don't like I leave. People will play the way they determine to be fun for them. If Legion decides that treating pug members in a certain way is fun then you're doing something right. Most guilds will choose to treat pugs in a way whether considered good or bad. The reason I am in a certain guild is because I believe in how the guild works and their approach so I wouldn't say being accused of being a bunch of meanies is something I give a snot about. But as for targets. you do get that exclusive right ;)

First thing you learn here is Legion is to blame. Not sure what of but t-shirts hsould be handed out in the market :p

Maybe I should point out that while it may seem I came across as being one of those, erm it's in this pm..."jealous types", I am in fact not. I feel about Legion about as much as I feel for some unrecognisable guild. You guys have accomplishments, I have them to and we go on and on because at the end of the day, you have to feel pride in what you doing. Legion gets that right to.

I'm not here to debate greatness though, I saw the thread and thought it was funny and marvelous all at once. I can imagine the amount of people scrambling like peons to get 24hours :p you guys must have made a killing. That would most likely be an exclusive Legion affair as well. No other guild has tried it before so sincere kudos for doing it. But understand, that if you step back and look at the marvelous arrogance of it, like it's actually important to be able to say you spent 24hours with Legion like it's a badge of honour you reserve for things like spending time with Metallica or whoever an idol is to you...that's the part I find funny ;)

It doesn't, it's just a measure of success that can be easily quantified and verified. It's like having the richest company in the world. You can be first, you can be more timely or more efficient or whatever, but the fact remains that you can't PROVE that you were more timely or more efficient or first, and that guild can PROVE that he has more reknown that you.

And get this, you can spend reknown but you can't spend "greatness" :)


How is Renown in anyway a measurement of anything other than how many chests are opened.

Still, if it can be proven that opening more chests leads to more reknown, then it can be objectively said at least that they have opened more chests. Since chests usually appear in places where creatures have to be beaten, it can also be said that they have beaten more creatures. In truth though, you don't only get reknown from opening chests, so you can't say it's a measurement of anything other than they have played a lot for a long time, which surely is the mark of a sustainable guild.


Now yes, "greatest" of anything is open for debate

Fair enough, so if you want to call your guild the "greatest" you'll have to provide a way to objectively measure and verify the greatness that you claim your guild has.

I am sorry people feel that your guild is a bit sub par in comparison to ours but most don't find 1000 f2p accounts ransacking Irestone Inlet ad nauseum much of an achievement.

Your analogy does not compute. Having the most renown in DDO does not come close to being the richest company in the real world. More like having the most renown in DDO equals most publicized company.

Still, if it can be proven that opening more chests leads to more reknown, then it can be objectively said at least that they have opened more chests. Since chests usually appear in places where creatures have to be beaten, it can also be said that they have beaten more creatures. In truth though, you don't only get reknown from opening chests, so you can't say it's a measurement of anything other than they have played a lot for a long time, which surely is the mark of a sustainable guild.

You can beat epic Claw of Vulkoor with 2 kills (I think, not 100% sure) or you can beat Kobold Assault Casual with 200 kills. Does this mean the later was 100 times more difficult than the first?

Fair enough, so if you want to call your guild the "greatest" you'll have to provide a way to objectively measure and verify the greatness that you claim your guild has.

I have my own opinions on this one, but suffice to say your "objectives" are not a measurement of guild or player skill whatsoever

It can't be said that reknown has no value though, it enables you to get a good guild ship and lots of enhancements for it.

No one is arguing against this. Just don't see the relevance to the argument.

I ran last night in a PUG with some guilds that had 30+ guild levels, one was even in the 50's I think, and they were terrible. From random unneeded deaths, to share plz on Reavers Refuge quests, to getting lost inside the quest. But since the guild I'm a member of only has 3 members (Myself, Bunker, and Murnk) and is only level 18, those other guilds MUST be better players than us because their guild level says so? Yeah that's an accurate way to measure how good a guild is. :rolleyes:
