Guild Recruitment: [MT] Ambush now recruiting
View post on Tera forums#1 Yesuna02/06/2018, 12:05 AM
Hello PvPers,

As you may have heard, Ambush has returned to the game. Some of you may remember previous iterations of the guild from the past, but we have always been a core part of the Mount Tyrannus PvP community and its legacy.

Our primary goal is to create a close-knit family that cares for and supports each other. We aim for experiencing end game content on a competitive level, while at the same time helping and aiding each other along the way to become the best we can possibly become.

Recruitment will be open only on the weekends, starting at 12pm PST (2pm CST, 3pm EST) on Saturday and Sundays and lasting for several hours. If you are interested in joining the guild, show up at the entrance to Kanstria, message one of our leadership team (Finity, Soraka, Aer, Sephranex/Turtwig/Couple, Letmesmexyou), and we will trial you.

The trial process consists of two parts. The technical trial will be held in Kanstria if we do not know your current skill level. For DPS, the trial consists of dueling some of our members, and team 3s if we still do not have an adequate grasp on your skill. For healers, the requirement is a game of team 3s.

Following the technical trial, there will be an additional trial of 2 weeks in the guild where we will be observing if you are a good fit with our community. At the end of two weeks, an officer will contact you to inform you if you have achieved member status.

Ambush has always been a beacon of hope for the community, and we are back now to give players who share our vision a place to belong. If you are interested, show up at the trials and we look forward to seeing you there.

Trials of skill level? Dueling some of the members? It seems like you are looking for members that are skilled, rather than just members based upon willing to learn or work as a team. Not everyone is 100% perfect and furthermore it's embarrassment upon your recruiters and long time guild members having trials to recruit members by dueling each other. It's like recruiter is better than one of your guild members or a guild member is better than your recruiter. How is that welcoming for a guild? It shouldn't matter if they are weak or strong, because what really matters is working and learning as a guild together! If you want item lvl prerequisite that's fine, but really I've seen some shame on the global chat from members that left your guild and called you out for ditching your long-time members, which in that case is them. Unless I'm thinking about another guild? Sorry to spoil your recruiting process and this is your guild after all, but I'm afraid that's how I see it. It's not the first time I've seen this charade happen among players from a guild. Don't be one of those guilds, even though I'm not joining.

For example the Astros winning their first world series. That was one the best games in baseball history! Astros are not perfect because they lost a few games during the world series. The Dodgers had won 3 out the 7 games. Game 7 was really tense for us, which Astros won. Usually it's like game 5 and it's over. So really are you going to base players like that, if I can relate like that as a team? PROVEN FACT PEOPLE LEARN AS A TEAM! If they win or lose.

People despise my sane insight, go ahead... I've seen it before, so trust me on this enlightment. Just it doesn't look right for the recruiter and your guild members to behave such of that manner.

Hello, the technical trial is just an assessment of your current skill level, which is necessary if we are to know what steps it will take for you to improve. Our officers and members, some of the best pvpers who play this game, will give you tips for improvement throughout the trial and see how you respond to criticism and your ability to learn. We are not looking for skill, we are looking for potential, and we cannot see your potential unless you show us how you play.

You should note that the trial is two parts. The technical trial is only half of the trial. The two week behavioral trial in guild is to assess your teamwork and ability to play well with others.

Also, I'm not sure what you're talking about "members who have left." As of right now, there has been one person who has left the guild, and she had an issue with our policy against being toxic towards other guild members. Perhaps you're confusing Ambush with another guild.

You caught me; sorry. Seriously though I don't concur. People don't have potential from the start, it's like you expect them to be in just two-weeks; I'm stating new Tera players. Do you have them work with different members during those 2 weeks or just selected members? It's like oh here is our weak members, let's see what you got or do you play with the best members? As a guild the skill really varies, so the results are valid, however people learn as team over time. That's all I'm really stating.

Sorry, people should learn over time, and not just two weeks. There are a lot of new players these days. I'm not one of them, just stating a fact to help. As I thought your methods made other players feel weak and useless on recruit side or long-time member side. I don't know maybe that's not the case, since it's testing more on potential, and not skill. I was looking around and was curious. Not that I wanted to join anyways. Maybe the future time? I don't know? It's nice to see guilds that come back, I guess for memories sake. Shows that people do come back. Oh what's the use, I'm so lonely, and I need an expand guild home. I just play with one friend and he only plays on weekends. I wish my friends came back that I played with years ago. Might seem I'm out of practice working with people a bit on PvP. I'm more of dungeon person than PvPer; I'm too sweet. Potential? I don't know, I'm so out of practice on PvP. Just dailies on evening for me. I do cooperate well with people though. Actually I hardly ever PvP except in battlegrounds. Do I know my classes? I do on most. I experiment with them at times, finding the right balance, going by essential mana mostly. I need a Teamspeak guild, because I'm simple based. Gosh it's hard to find one guild these days to expand to.


You realize this isn't your diary right?

Our recruitment system has no requirements other than the player being able to sacrifice some time on the weekend to spend with our core guild to see what they're getting themselves into and to see what we're working with as well. If a player is able to give up some time to prove they want to be a part of something we're most likely going to be tagging that player. We have the tryouts, because were focused mainly on PVP. We want to know that they can follow a collective direction to accomplish a set goal. It's not necessarily measuring their skill level, but reading them as a person and seeing how they follow directions or criticism it's open to all players even ones with zero PvP history.

One Love
Finity

@MistyTera Hey buddy
In my opinion, PVP in tera skill wise is measured by mainly 2 things.
1. The Ability to play said class and how it works ( involves combos, plain match ups, positioning / what you class generally do, awareness of enemy iframes, followups)
2. Overall knowledge about the game and decision making ( involves knowing the cool downs of Kaias GS Rally even though you don't play the class, knowing how to immensely impact the match by applying your pressure with knowledge in certain scenarios,) in general you play in a way where you expect what may happen next with confidence.

Of course the 2nd detail only be gained through sheer play time and deduction to the game.However, I would argue that teaching people how a certain class works does not take over 2 weeks. If assuming a player is starting from scratch and is fluent in English, teaching information about combos, iframes, and simple movement can really only take about less than a week. Sure extensive game knowledge and being an overall solid player will definitely take some time. but learning a class is not that hard. There is no use in teaching complete randoms everything if they aren't into it. Being a PvP player requires dedication and love for the game. Observing how tryouts behave and react ( especially novice players) in the span of 2 weeks can really determine if the said person really deserve to be in a top GvG guild. There SHOULD be a learning curve and imo it is quite clear to see if someone is really trying to improve or just going along with it half halfheartedly. 2 weeks is more than enough to suffice and separate the eager ones and the bandwagoners.
