What you need to know before applying to join The Kelly Gang

The Kelly Gang is a collection of gamers who believe that good MMO PvP far surpasses good MMO PvE in challenge and excitement, whilst recognising that good PvE is usually essential to providing the equipment necessary to be competitive in PvP.

Timezone

We are an Oceanic (UTC+10:00) timezone guild. Our membership is multinational, but if you don't play during Australian peak times this won't be the guild for you. The peak times span about 6 hours on a weekday, from 6pm to midnight, and usually 7am to 3am on Friday & Saturday nights.


Player vs Player (PvP)

We love PvP. We value a good PVP fight over a good PVE fight any day of the week. Any player on the server who is not in an allied guild, in games that support allies, (we generally limit the number of allies to keep it simple) is a legitimate target.

We're not lowbie gankers. Accidents will happen, and sometimes lowbies will get in our way or be wearing the wrong guildtag at the wrong time - but if your idea of PvP is hanging around lowbie zones and bindpoints, you're looking at the wrong guild.

On the other hand, we love hunting groups in dungeons... even though it seems to be a dying concept in MMO's these days... and enjoy nothing more than ganking a group and then killing and looting their named while they watch us from their unreleased corpses.

Our love of PvP makes our guildtag a hard one to wear. Most guilds will KOS us or go out of their way to make our lives difficult, most pickup groups will reject us, and if this is not the case we haven't been doing our job right.

You will occasionally get griefed, especially if you are low-level as some of our enemies get very frustrated with not being able to take our high level groups and go take it out on lowbies. This is a part of PvP life. Sometimes high level guild members will be available to rescue you and sometimes all you will be offered is advice on how to get away, or to get even.


Grouping

We're a very group oriented guild. If you're in range with our main level pack you will find yourself daily in guild groups or small groups. If we have a partial, we won't fill it with pickups .. we'll hold the spaces for guildees. That is our ethic. If you are lower level, groups are more sporadic/ghetto. Some of our lower levels are more casual players who are on rarely, most are working hard to catch our main level pack. We do, however, tend to know the game content very well and work to provide a lot of advice on good solo/small group content for various level range and class combinations.


Raiding & Loot

We will raid in games which possess raid content. We are not a hardcore raid guild, but we have plenty of members who have deep experience with hardcore raidleading. How hard we raid will depend on the content available and the playtimes of our membership at the time, but likely it will be 2-3 raids per week.


Guild Culture

We are an older guild. This does not necessarily mean more mature, but most of us have been playing MMO's for 10+ years. We also have very Australian senses of humour. If you expect to roleplay, or are easily offended by being called a banana, a beanhead, assigned the guildtitle "treechopping freelove hippie" for harvesting mobs during a grind group .. we are not the guild for you.


Levelling & Time Expectations

We are not power levellers, our typical member plays somewhere between 10 and 30 hours a week. On the other hand, most of us did our time in the daily raiding world and have power-gamer mindsets. There's no point being a part of the guild if you are not going to play with the guild, and the guild progresses to and plays in the high levels. If you join whilst a long way out of our main level pack and show no signs of catching up, you'll find yourself looking for a new guild.


Voice Server

We maintain our own voice server, hosted personally by one of the guild leaders. PVP without voice is foolish. Most of our members log onto the voice server before they fire up the game. It's recently become a requirement that all members be on the voice server whilst playing the MMO we're currently all in. During the periods when we're not playing an MMO, we encourage ALL members to log on reguarly, no matter what game they're playing, as there are always members playing games during our breaks and it helps to show that you're still active.


Applying To Join The Kelly Gang

1. Read this far

2. Make an account on our forums and post an application (please ensure to use the supplied template). It doesn't have to be war and peace, just a little about yourself and your gaming past and plans for the current game. Include information on how we can contact you ingame.

3. We'll find you ingame, invite you onto the voice server for a chat and if all is good join you up on a trial basis. We may not contact you immediately, and this is another part of the recruitment. Those who disappear because 'two days' is too long to wait won't find a place in our guild.

4. The transition from trial to member can take a day or a month. It depends on you .. and it's a chance for us to get a feel for how you'll fit in and you to figure out if we're the guild you're looking for. With most people, it's pretty obvious within hours.
