  1. [Week 37] Weekly Recap

    Recruitment Efforts Literally handful of new people - @XeonChaos, @zeldrn, @Azaharys, @LordHydra and @covack - joined us this week. Welcome guys! Currently, as you already have seen from our General Forum announcement (red banner above), we are still looking for few skilled/flexible DDs to join our ranks. Very good Tanks and Healers won't be turned down either - but since we already have these roles filled in our Raid Core, newcomers should have great skills in their "art" And as usual, Socials are always welcome to join us! Raid Core - Where we stand? Answer to that question isn't really heart-warming. We had a good start and a terrible-at-best continuation to our Normal mode raids. Our goal was to go a little bit easy on people, not to enforce Raid Core rules on all as we do Normal modes. What we got was the following: some people not signing up for the events (whereas Raid Core dictates you have to attend 3 of them in a weekly basis and can only be absent in occasional cases where real-life happens, but this cannot become a regular thing); some even leaving the group and joining some other raid group God knows where (if it was up to me alone, I'd just kick such raiders from the Core - thankfully it isn't); some not joining our raids (at the same time being a Raid Core member) at all and raiding with others, and so on, so forth. I remember decreasing the number of weekly raiding days from 4 to 3 to make things easier for our guys. I remember decreasing the number of hours from mandatory 3 hours to 2, again to make raids to look more attractive. We even pulled raid times from 9pm CET to 8:30pm CET to make it smooth. But guys, I never told joining events as it pleases us or not giving rat's a**e about raid organization is the "discipline" we are looking forward to. Definitely not. So, that s**t ends this week: effective yesterday, we are enforcing Raid Core Guidelines fully and we will be recruiting serious raiders who actually will do what they sign up for. The RAID CORE club will be reset and only those who are committed will be accepted in. Anyone who can't commit himself/herself to a 3-day raiding idea can be a Reserve to the Core (I am sure some of you already stated their interests in that, due to real-life commitments etc), but they won't be actually invited to the aforementioned club (which technically means, once cleared by our Raid Leaders, anyone can join our raids as reserves whenever they can). We have about 7-8 people already committed to this project, so we will just remove those who aren't from the Core and move on. We have the hardest roles (Tanks and Healers) covered - with handful of new DDs this thing will get rolling in no time! To that end ... Rak'ashi Joins Officer Team ... to help with recruitment efforts. He comes from NA megaserver, with great amount of raiding and raid-leading experience under his belt. He will help me to recruit missing essentials to our Raid Core. Additionally, here and there, he might be assisting @Cortair in raid organization duties. Welcome mate! Still LF Broadcaster/Youtuber ... who would stream our events. We will start with PvE, and move forth to PvP Cyrodiil sieges being broadcast. Role also entitles access to our guild Youtube channel, where our Youtuber will be able to post video guides etc. Member Notes for Officer Eyes Only Last but not least, we will be using member notes for management purposes - mostly for our Raid Leaders to post notes regarding each member or such stuff. To that end, member ranks won't be able to read those notes anymore. That's it for now! I won't be adding any notes regarding other projects this time - PvE one right now isn't flourishing, so all our focus is on it right now. Thanks for reading! Thanks for being part of this! Really means a lot! See ya in-game!
  2. New Members Lodge can be considered small-to-medium-sized guild now. This week we had @Esutick, @Steeno, @Kepler, @Dexter411, @Leilane, @Lil Cassiopeia, @deanquay, @elarionneithan, @EzioBF and @Archadian44 joining our ranks. Welcome guys! Raid Core And Raid Core is ready to be tested as well. Starting this week on, we've scheduled Normal mode trials on our guild Calendar. Raiding days have also been established: Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday will be our raiding days. Raids start at 20:30 CET (19:30 GMT, 21:30 EET) and will last for 2 hours. If needed, they can be extended for another 30 minutes. Raid Core guidelines/rules texts will be updated with this information accordingly. Those of you who haven't yet enrolled in to our Raid Core, please do so by following necessary steps (for details, please talk to @Cortair). Current members, please signup for all events on the Calendar. Please also make sure you make it to raids in time. Being late without notification would reflect quite badly at this early stage of guild raiding, so please be considerate in this regard! For any possible real-life issues, please use appropriate calendar event and comment there, reporting your being late or absence! Dungeon set-piece farming events have been discontinued from Calendar: please ask in-game if you need certain pieces. Many of our guys will be happy to lend a hand! What's Next for the Guild? PvP, RP Initiatives & WTB Twitch Broadcaster Once we start moving towards Veteran mode trials, I will start our Cyrodiil PvP and RP initiatives going, by recruiting people towards these two projects. We will have Officers overseeing these projects. So stay tuned! Additionally, we are looking for a streamer/broadcaster. Originally, when we first launched the guild in ESO, @Thyworm was our broadcaster whose videos you can still watch in our Youtube channel. Since we will be starting our trial runs this week, I think it's good time to have a dedicated broadcaster for these events. If you are willing, please drop a line below. Meanwhile, I will be streaming our trial runs on Twitch, and export them to our Youtube channel myself. Ranks in Guild Forums Starting yesterday, we also have guild ranks on the forums, with rank badges and auto-promotion system implemented. Doing so, I also noticed several of our members being absent for quite some time now - guys, please be advised that after 30 days of absence, your guild rank will reset. After 60 days of absence without notice you may be removed from the guild. Please make sure you login to the game now and then. Logging in to forums also will prevent you from being kicked or losing a rank. I also updated our Ranks topic (I was quite surprised that it wasn't updated, having tons of outdated information there). I believe that's it. Thanks for being part of this journey folks! See you in-game!
  3. State of Recruitment We've come a long way since late May, when we barely could see 1 or 2 members online. Today we have 6-8 online in "deadest" of times (yea, I made the word up ) This week we've had several new members joining our ranks, ranging from totally-new-to-the-game people, to very experienced, seasoned raiders. @Majicauni, @Aggro-is-mine, @SPRT, @Gaehr, @Rak'ashi, @Svetozar, @Sebastian, @Kalterran, @Zyma, @antiKILLER and @todd2446 joined us as new members. Remember 10 days ago I also was re-inviting old Lodge members back to the game? Well, third person - @10darkknight10 - joined us once again. Welcome to all of you! Status on Raid Core Past week our Raid Leader @Cortair has been at work of inspecting our future potential raiders. And to our surprise, we've received quite a positive feedback from him about you guys. We like what we are seeing! He will be continuing to do that, so please be compliant with him when he asks you to come for spec and gear inspection. This is a must, and no raider will be accepted to the Core without such inspection. Our Officer team was also very occupied with other Raid Core related topics, to such levels that, personally myself couldn't game properly. To be specific, we managed to finalize our Raid Core Application Requirements and Attendance Guidelines, which are very important two pieces of reading. We gathered a lot of info through polls about your play times, specs etc to have a good idea about our future raiding parties. So, our plan to form the Core is as following: the coming week (week-37) we will start scheduling Normal mode trials on our Calendar. Those of you cleared for Raid Core by @Cortair will be joining those events. We will see how we perform as a team, our dynamics, structure etc. And in the weeks after that, we will be forming the Official Raid Core through official channels - and this team will start our Veteran mode runs. In a fun twist of fate, these initial, Normal mode trials will be a trial for all of us, as a team. So for now, please do *not* perform application to Raid Core (through Raid Core club) and wait for it until we are done with Normal mode trials. One last, but important note about these Normal mode trials: although we haven't formed our Raid Core officially, the Attendance Guidelines and everything else will be in effect. So please read them carefully and make sure you understand them. Ask me questions if there is something you don't understand. Dungeon Farming Runs We have significant number of members now. Which means we can do (and actually we do) Pledges together, farm dungeons for set pieces together. So please sign up for farming events on Calendar, join Discord, group up and farm those buggers. Guild Representation One other topic is the representation of the guild. By purchasing a Guild Tabard from our Guild Store and wearing it (don't worry, it won't spoil your costumes), your character nameplate will receive our guild name. Please do that. Let everyone see which collective you belong to, possibly also contributing to our recruitment efforts. Remember last week I mentioned a nice sync tool from Alcast's ESO-Database.com? Please try to install it. It works seamlessly in the background, syncs your character data and builds overall guild score for Lodge, placing us in Leaderboards. It's not mandatory to have that tool, but it's highly recommended. The members supporting us through these two methods will receive their ranks much sooner than normal. Yesss, I just said that! So that's it. If you are still here, it means you actually have read it all. THANK YOU! And see you in-game! Gelmir
  4. State of Recruitment Recruitment is ongoing. This week we had some fresh blood joining the club: @Holybladee, @SkyGubbins, @YourBeast and @Sifres are our new members. Welcome guys! Additionally, I re-invited all our original members back to the guild, although I knew almost all of them would have left the game long time ago. After inviting dozens back, two of them - @Gorgori and @Aeriea rejoined us. Greeting to them again! We also have two Raid Leaders now: @Nefaras and @Cortair. Both of them have been hard in work, creating guides for our players, making polls, helping people out, organizing stuff for future Raid Core etc. Thanks guys for all the hard work! Future of Raids/Raid Core Firstly, we created a poll, asking people their regular playing hours in order to determine the best raiding times. 11 of you guys have responded, which is quite a good number - I encourage those of you who haven't done so yet, to do that, if you are interested in raiding with us in the future. @Cortair will be creating few more polls this week, asking what roles/classes will you be bringing to our raids. We will announce the links to these polls, so please keep an eye out for them and participate. Secondly, as you already might have noticed, we created few dungeon-farming events on calendar, for those who need their set pieces from dungeons. If interested, please sign-up. We generally will do those during evenings. Last but not least, we still are recruiting for our Raid Core and are in the search for good and/or aspiring Warden/DK Tanks and Templar/Warden Healers. If you have such friends who would like to join us, please redirect them to us. Miscellaneous Recently I discovered one of Alcast's online tools: ESO-Database.com. It's something like Magelo.com, syncs your character and guild data, creates fancy banner signatures for you. That's all folks! Stay all and see you in-game!
  5. State of the Recruitment It's still ongoing. Nothing new - we had few new members ( @Amdis, @Vilachi, @Fu Ling U and @miotas - who hasn't still joined us in-game). Also apparently @PduJ is back to the game. Welcome guys! And @anakin90 left us! Farewell to him/her I guess! Farming Dungeons for Set Pieces Past weekend we started farming dungeons for set pieces in order to prepare ourselves for raids to come. And from this week on, I want to schedule regular such guild farming sessions. We started with Netched set pieces for Sorceresses. We also need to have sessions for Stamina DD's and Tanks. So I ask all our stamina-based DDs and Tanks to reply in this topic, helping me to determine which sets they require, so that we could schedule related sessions in our calendar and see how many are actually interested in doing them. If we get minimum 3-4 people for each farming session type, it will be a go for that group. So far, I have scheduled Sorceress farming sessions in our calendar - all magicka DDs who are interested in it, please signup - this will show us how many of you are interested in the event, so that we could schedule it effectively. We have many players who already raid in other guilds who don't need dungeon set pieces, so we need to prepare everyone else for raids to come. Discussions in Forums From time to time, we will have some ideas coming from people, which will need discussing. Last week, I proposed an idea regarding a possible Trading project in the guild, but only @neaNicu sent his feedback (thanks mate!). Guys, please try to participate in these discussions. I know some of you may not be interested in forums, but Lodge has always been forums-centric community where we discussed every topic. Thanks in advance! That's all. If you are still here, thanks for taking time reading this!
  6. Hello people, Traditionally, in past I posted weekly "State of the Guild" posts in forums, giving our guys some idea about where things are, what we are doing and what is the progress. I think it's time I resumed this again, since I am fully back to the game now. Recruitment Efforts They are going reasonably well, us focusing mostly on Official Forums as a source for new recruits. Unfortunately right now, most of our members who decided to stick around, are rather focused on individual activities, or doing stuff with their other guildmates from other guilds - which is understandable at this point. But once we fill our ranks in coming weeks, I hope this will change (after all, all of you joined Lodge for a reason to do things as a guild, right?). I also updated our guild ad topic in Official Forums where I stated that we also need to fill our Raid Leader positions (PvE and PvP separately). Please read the details there. Due to the game design issues of ESO, unfortunately recruitment of raiders and officers is going quite slowly (in other MMOs you can literally reach these goals within mere few weeks really). Despite that, we have quite many members who decided to stick with us: I personally thank you guys! This means a lot to me! Changes in Forums After upgrading our forum software to the latest version, we got a new feature called Clubs through which I plan to organize our Raid Cores. I already moved our old Rift and ESO Raid Core forums into the new The RAID CORE club, and I will be continuing discussions related to raiding inside that club. This organization of things isn't yet final, I am still brainstorming on it, so some changes may happen. Meanwhile, please do not join this Club as we haven't started forming our Raid Cores. I also added Daily Pledges event to the Calendar, please sign up and try to do them as a guild, mostly because we should play more with each other to know our guild mates and to create a guild atmosphere. Otherwise, I can't imagine how funny and family-like our raids will become, when we start doing them. That's all for now and thank you all for taking time and reading all this! Gelmir
