    Default EXPLOITS: Turbine hacked my guild

    You're kidding, right?

    We apologize for the inconvenience. Work arounds until the fix goes in include:
    - Disabling guild chat or moving it to its own tab temporarily (obviously not the most fun or ideal one )
    - Setting up a custom chat channel for your guild. You can do this by typing /joinchannel somename
    Quit bringing cove back. That would be a great apology.

    We're looking into the guild Message of the Day issue as well. Note that you can still see your guild message of the day in the social panel (O) in the guild tab at any time even if it doesn't pop up in the guild chat.
    Problem solved, I fired a half dozen bug reports entitled: 'EXPLOITS: Turbine hacked my guild' already. Not so funny when it comes back at you now is it?

    And yes, there will be pirates again soon. Messages will go out once it's cove time. Nothing says spring like pirates.
    I prefer elves and halflings in booty shorts.

    I don't think this is a good solution. The event was turned on without a patch or hotfix or downtime so asking the community to wait up to two weeks to fix this debacle is mind boggling. I want to support Turbine and this game, I really do, but this event was not well thought out (simply look at the number of threads/posts of people confused and unsure what is going on) and should be put on hold until the bugs can be ironed out.

    All one word on those channel names, and password can be set by adding a password after the name. (example /joinchannel PirateNoms p455w0rd)

    We're looking into the guild Message of the Day issue as well. Note that you can still see your guild message of the day in the social panel (O) in the guild tab at any time even if it doesn't pop up in the guild chat.

    Saw some confusion around what activities are going on for existing players...
    • To win the daily/weekly guild prizes you don't have to be a "new" player, you just have to be online. Winners are notified in game via in-game mail, and winning guilds will see a broadcast when a guild has been picked (winning guilds only happen 1 per week).
    • You get bonuses to XP and loot for grouping with new guildies even if you are not a "new" player yourself.
    • Even if you have no "new" players in your guild and are not new yourself, you still earn renown bounties for leveling yourself up. So if you have friends who already came back, you still want to help each other level too if you're interested in renown for your guild.

    And yes, there will be pirates again soon. Messages will go out once it's cove time. Nothing says spring like pirates.
    Instead of not firing "so often", could you please turn it off entirely.

    If you really want people to know about the awesome new guild event, you could make a world broadcast once per hour as the workaround until patch 2. It would be annoying, but it would only be annoying once per hour instead of several times per minute.

    Until they actually raise the cap on how many people can be in a guild, this event is actually less than worthless to me. As a matter of fact, its kind of mean to flaunt stuff like this and then deny people from joining the guild they want to join and the guild that would have them if not for the absurdly low cap on how many people can be in a guild.

    You want to get me excited about guilds? Raise the cap number. It would make my game experience 100% more enjoyable.

    Default Veteran Status

    Question about veteran status - if I create a new account and purchase veteran status to open quests on elite, but still start my characters at lv1, instead of lv4, does that count as a new player for this event? Or, does simply purchasing veteran status trigger the reduced benefits?

    It doesn't bode well that a simple thing like guild channel spamming isn't tested before implementation and how the expansion is going to be weeks of player base work arounds to have a functional game.

    Does anyone know when the Build Your Guild Event starts?

    so this idea was to make peeps think this event was great by giving nothing to established players or established guilds except if they brought back people or brought in new people and leveled them, and a one in a million chance to win something


    Its almost as bad as the chance to win free points to playtest a game by giving away uber items that once the playtest was over would be deleted .

    no if i was pr and i wanted peeps to spend money i would try a different way like making my people feel like i cared about em and that they were somewhat important

    Talking

    Gotta love Turbine only they can create an event to encourage new players to join and/or return to guilds and then punish and annoy them with guild channel spam. Thus making guild channel communication and participation almost impossible.

    I'm confused.

    You created a special event to encourage your core players to reach out to new players, invite them into guilds, and bring back players who left DDO some time ago.

    And your announcing this in the most annoying way possible?

    Sorry, were you trying to bring players in or drive them away?

    Xp bonus seems to be working properly. It reads in advancement like an Xp pot or shrine bonus.

    I had a returning guildy log back on today and create a character. He did not receive the incentive messages nor did they pop in guild chat. How can he tell if his account is "returning flagged"

    You need to be grouping with a new or returning (not played in 6 months) player.

    Two old players grouping get diddly.
