Guild Name: Remnants of Hope [HOPE] Server: Jade Quarry, Tarnished Coast Time Zone: International, primarily North America Playstyle: PvX, RP Roleplay: Optional, Light-Medium Age minimum: 14 years VOIP: TS3 Website: Remnants of Hope Recruiting: OPEN Remnants of Hope was founded on June 7, 2009. Originally a Star Wars Galaxies guild, it moved to Star Wars: The Old Republic at launch. Well known and respected on the Jung-Ma server, fellow guilds have nothing but good things to say. We are described by our fellow players with comments such as “an honor to play with”, to join us for “the full experience”, “really good at making sure fun and great community are the norm” and “one of the best communities I have known in the game”. (i) At the request of its members, Remnants of Hope has changed into a multi-gaming guild to accommodate Guild Wars 2. Over the past 3 years we have undergone changes but continue to improve with age and experience. We strive to provide an engaging environment for all players to play the way they want. Currently we have about 20 members playing GW2, with 78 approximately in the guild total. Remnants of Hope stands for a lot of things, truthfully. If our atmosphere shows anything, it shows our integrity, maturity, respect and our very will to survive. Now that last one might seem a bit extreme, but our undying loyalty to our guild and the loyalty shown by many of our members today have risen from the ashes of what would have kept many guilds down! We are ever evolving and ever improving as we continue to age and grow. What we stand for is to serve as a place where one can escape from their daily struggles and stress of life, to simply enjoy their time that they have to spare. Our motivation is to simply ensure that everyone has the best experience that we can offer! As one of our member’s favorite phrases, "Light from the few can be a beacon to many," we hope to empower and prove inspiration to many of the guilds within the GW2 community. For us to endure what we've been tossed and continue to go strong, we only hope that all of the guilds thrive! Though we may serve as an example, certainly we strive to become better and stronger with each passing day! What do we stand for? Hopefully as a beacon of inspiration to any who join or any who compete, we all have one common goal among us and that is a pleasant gaming experience! Remnants of Hope wants to give you the opportunity to build your own playstyle. This means we offer PvE, PvP and RP. The great thing is you can literally play the way you want!

We plan on taking PvP very seriously, and continue to progress in dungeons and new content both competitively, and casually as a community. We don't plan on limiting ourselves to one thing that the game has to offer, but all fields that we can conquer as an ever-growing community.

We have members from age 15-70! Q. What kind of guild activities are there? A. We currently have sPvP practice Monday and Thursday nights at 5pm PST/8pm EST. We'll have daily WvW events when 2 week rotations start. We have crafting material runs at least once a week along with dungeon runs and scavenger hunts! Q. How is the Remnants of Hope moderated and ran? A. The Remnants of Hope operates in a manner that has proven to be the most efficient. The guild itself is ran by an individual member with the rank of High Elder. The High Elder serves as the leader and has overall authority over guild matters. To assist the High Elder in overseeing the guild, there is an elected body whose duty is to help manage and enforce Guild policy when necessary. This group is called the "Elder Council". Q. How would I go about advancing in rank within the Remnants of Hope if I joined? A. Remain active! You can easily get involved with Specialized Departments within the Guild (ie: RP, PVP, and PVE Department, Social Department, Graphics Department, Recruitment Committee, Diplomacy Corps, etc) Q. Where do I go for additional questions? A. Post here or in our visitor forums! We’re always open and willing to answering any questions or concerns you may have. Additionally, you can whisper Alaric Doomflayer, Azyrel Blackrose, Rayean or Rinessa. --------------- (i) Real quotes from our ToR recruitment thread here. Pages 1, 1, 1, 7 respectively.
