My intelligence tells me that next week will be another Total Galactic War. It is time to conquer our fourth planet.
I also am seeing a trend. We are following a lackluster week in Conquest with another lackluster week. If this trend continues next week, conquering a planet will be difficult.
One reason may be the busyness of the holidays. Less people are online. I think that is only one reason for less people being online. First, I speculate that people have tried Shadow of Revan and are now moving on. Second, people have moved on from the grind of Conquest Events.
I would like to see everyone make an effort to recruit to swell our ranks again. There is plenty of room. Make an effort. If you are in a flashpoint with someone without a guild, after the run chat them up a bit. To the second point, I am asking you to contribute next week to the conquering of a planet. This is a good time to gather materials in anticipation.
I posted in my article Vision that I was looking for someone to take charge of recruiting and player development. That position is still open, and I think it would be a great asset to the guild.
I'd really like to help turn some of the conquest stuff around, as well as recruit more. I can't promise that we'll conquer a planet every week, but I do have some ideas to help us streamline our crafting a bit. Maybe we can chat about it sometime soon, and if all sounds good maybe we could have a short meeting with as many as can attend.
We wound up finishing eighteenth overall on our server, and we could not catch Cauterize to capture Nar Shaddaa. Only sixteen characters reached 50,000 points. Bar-ter alone supplied 500,000 of our 2,230,713. I think our showing is very indicative of where we are at as a guild and sums up something that Mygross said on LINE "I am… really starting to feel burnt out with the conquest stuff."
Ghinzu and I spoke about making one tab of the guild bank for materials that can be used to craft the items that give us points. Right now the tab for crafting is filled with a lot of things that are useless. I am still encouraging everyone to invite to the guild. I would like to have thirty people on each night; our numbers are dipping. Encourage new people to visit this site, explain promotions, and let them know about TeamSpeak and LINE. Also, remember to let people in guild chat know a group is gathering for flashpoints, etc.; otherwise, we will never engage a set of players.
I will try to pick a planet each week that we can get into the top ten. I am hoping to ramp up for the next Total Galactic War. Any suggestions and all help is appreciated.
