Guild activities after HoT launch: what to expect
TL;DR: please be patient and cordial; we'll be doing everything we can as fast as possible; please offer constructive advice and help if you're able to; let's make sure RPS remains the friendliest guild in Tyria.
It's very exciting that stacks of new guild content is coming with HoT this week. Heading into the unknown also carries some uncertainty, so here are a few pointers to make sure we all stay united and friendly throughout:
1. We'll be unlocking guild halls / guild mission slots / upgrades / etc as soon as we can. Note that this does not mean 'as soon as humanly possible'. We'll do our best to get everything done on a good schedule, but you're bound to see lots of guilds on reddit/official forums getting things done before us. Please be patient and bear with us; we'll keep the guild updated on progress. If you're frustrated with how it's going, ask if there's anything you can do to help speed things up!
2. We will make mistakes. There will be a wealth of new information to take in and we're bound to occasionally make the wrong decision about what to upgrade/build/etc. Once again, please be patient, and offer constructive feedback where possible. If you think we've made an incorrect decision, let us know in the nicest way possible!
3. It will be impossible to accommodate everyone's preferences about the decorating/structure of the guild hall. We'll do what we can to reach compromises and give lots of people input in different decisions - and not just the usual vocal types! This includes the choice of the initial Guild Hall - we've opened this up to the vote (thanks Fersum!) but sadly not everyone will get what they want. We may be able to switch out or rotate guild halls later on but we'll have to see how feasible this is in practice. Please don't be too disappointed if a decision goes against you - let us know your views, and we'll try to accommodate them as best we can, but keep in mind that there are 470 of us!
To end on a note of cheese, remember our one rule: be excellent to each other. We're a friendly guild with almost no conflict, so let's keep it that way. If in doubt, blame Monkey.GW2: Saphnabylni & co.

The only thing to remember here isIf in doubt, blame Monkey.
I'll try to be in all day so just grab me if you need me for anything
Feedback your thoughts if you are online too, just don't expect me to do it all immediately, we'll need to get a grasp of what is new and how it needs to be handled.

I was asked about raids. We don't yet know how we'll organise guild raiding - we'll likely turn our attention to this once we've got our head around guild halls and once Anet has given an indication of when the first raid wing will be released.
Closer to raid release there will be a separate thread and announcements in guild message of the day - watch this space!GW2: Saphnabylni & co.

I'll be online from lunchtime Friday until bedtime Sunday lol so I'm happy to help out with anything.
I'm also not too bothered by how fast the guild hall is built but would really like to be part of the big one off events like when we take the guild hall from the Mordrem. These type of things are big parts of guild history and I think we should try and accommodate as many people as possible into them, if that mean waiting until Sunday guild events time then that's fine.
I would prefer not to log on after 12 hours of release to find that we already have all this stuff because a small number of people opened it up straight away.

Thanks Rav. We will certainly be saving anything major for when we can gather everybody together.
We are not expecting to be able to claim a guild hall for at least a week after release - though we don't know the full details, I understand that there will be a minimum Favor requirement to launch the expedition (Favor is the guild mission reward currency).
Once we know what's required, we can plan properly for claiming the hall. But rest assured that there will be plenty of warning.GW2: Saphnabylni & co.

We will be trying to run some boosts over the first 24 hours etc. to get what we can extra but otherwise we'll be maxing out the potential for all - even those away this coming weekend *sob*Monksbjornsson, a glass cannon of nordic origins and gleeful slaughterer of rabbits

This all sounds terribly organised, I'm more expecting total chaos for a few days.

If you read between the lines of the first post, it says "please expect chaos in the first few days. bear with us"GW2: Saphnabylni & co.

Quick reminder: I still don't have HoT and won't be picking it up for the foreseeable future, but I can trust in the guild that you'll carry us into Maguuma with excellence.
Of course, I'm still going to be online and there is another event in the works. Will keep you all informed.

Which reminds me - for those who haven't picked up HoT yet, my understanding is that you will be able to use the Guild Hall. However you won't be able to attend the 'claim the hall from the Mordrem' event, which requires HoT.GW2: Saphnabylni & co.

Not sure if this is the best place for this, but I'd like to remind everyone that Guild Chat isn't the place for story spoilers for Heart of Thorns."Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so"

It definitely is the place; thanks Rebel. I'll try to remember to put this in the Message of the Day since it's pretty important. Please remind me if I forget (or if another officer gets a chance, feel free...)GW2: Saphnabylni & co.

Well I've finally got my pre-order in, so expect to see me back online soon (busy tomorrow evening though). Looking forward to the guild hall claim especially, although as I'm expecting to change home instances outside the game soon, I might end up missing that.
