Everything is going smashingly well in GSCH to the point that this week I sending people to Teaghlach since a lot were coming with a friend or more. We have quite a few husband wife combos and we've made sure that RL friends and family are in the same guild. I don't think we had any issues working that out yet.
I will note that a 14 Day removal policy in GSCH seems to be the right path to go since we opened Teaghlach. I actually went three days this week with no one hitting that mark and having a guild of 99. Though there are around 10 of you that are hitting that 14 day mark with expired contracts I will be removing over the next three or four days. I am not even watching activity on active contracts as we are working well with getting people where they are happy. And as of last night Teaghlach hit 40 members if all the timing for the invites went off okay.
We even have people still looking for 7-day passes randomly and we have those and getting more as the 7-day passers become buyers of the game. So don't hesitate to see if there is a 7-day key out there somewhere if you still want to give it a try. We'll pop you in either guild that has room with a 7-day contract to go with you pass time and help you figure things out.
We haven't done a lot of subjugation in GSCH because of the wide range of levels and playstyles, but will probably mix some in here and there now because we have most of the officers at that level to know the area and lots of people closing in on it. I've been leveling slow because my primary concern is making sure the guild is doing okay and that we at least keep slamming supply missions out there. Now if I could get rid of my fishing supply mission curse, I would be happy. ROFL! We did some of them this week just because we didn't mind, but yeah, I think we like hacking up trees and beating on rocks the best for the most participation.
And it's fun with the missions and two guilds going at it. Yup, Jace found me on the other side of tree one time. Another time voice chat got confusing because Teaghlach was talking about stopping Sapheira from getting all the iron ore while GSCH was working on iron shard processing and opals. It made for some fun chat.
We definitely are active and chatty. There is always someone on Discord and people in game. Sure a lot of AFK goes on due to the game style, but most times have someone who is really there. =) Sure weekdays early morning US time might be primarily AFK time, but things are hopping along fine.
We even have some hardcore RPers over in ArachDubh that found a happy home there. So there is a spot for most any place style in BDO and still be with this family somehow.
