So it may be a silly to do this since this is for a game that's not even out yet and we're all going to be waiting for 4 long months for a beta invite, but I wanted to check in with all you early birds to see if this idea is going to gain any interest: A Guild of Bros.
Okay so hear me out. Quick back story: I'm a 20-something that's been playing tcgs for a bit over a year with some friends. We got in during the Innistrad block for MtG and absolutely fell in love with the format. But when my friends and I go to a local shop to play some FNM, we always spot some pretty sour moments:
-Cheaters who take advantage of people that don't know the game and don't know to ask for a judge
-Social rejects that would hound you all night for a trade you don't want to make
-Sore losers who say things like, "I don't want to be an asshole, but I would've beaten you if...."
-And a whole lot of other terrible stereotypes of the gaming community.
Obviously there are also the normal players who are kind, dapper folk just like you or I, but overall my favorite experiences playing tcgs are the ones I have playing with friends at one of our places. Now that our places are miles and miles away, I want to make a guild that feels like that in HEX.
I want a guild where you hear the following:
- "Oh shit! Got that rare you were looking for. Here, take it, hook me up the next time you pull X "
- "You're going Rabbits? Alright, I'll go Coyotes so we're not hunting after the same cards"
- "You know what would be fun? Can we pool together some stuff and make a deck just out of rat cards?"
- "Oh man, if you paired up that card with Y, you'd have a sick combo. I think I got some, let me check..."
What you can expect with Filthy Savages:
We're looking to make a guild of like minded individuals who want a relaxing, friendly experience. I don't just want a guild of friendly people, I want a guild of people who are friends. So that's why I'd like to make this guild. Don't let the name fool you, I'm sure anyone who joins up is a classy guy/gal. Ideally we'd do both PvP and PvE content. I know my friends and I love to tinker with decks until they're perfect, so don't be afraid to let your inner hardcore nerd shine and go into the deep end in this game; we'd be right behind you. Hopefully we'd get to do little fun guild drafts and tourneys on scheduled nights, or just some fun deck testing whenever some folks are on. I'm sure all aspects of this game will be fully represented within the guild. The most important thing to us is logging on and always being excited about who you saw online.
If this sounds like something you'd be into, please leave a comment. If this gets enough people behind it, I'll be sure to make a website and all that fun guild stuff. If not, I'll look for a way to shamefully delete this post and slink away in the anonymity of the internet.
Thanks for your time and thanks for reading this incredibly wordy post, you're a real stud for reading all of this.
