General Guild Info

Who are we and what do we do?

Bringers of Aggro [Oops] was formed in November 2011 by a small group of Guild Wars 1 players regularly filling up the #Guild Wars tag on Tumblr with shenanigans in vanquishing and HM Dungeoneering. Since then we’ve grown steadily and can boast a relaxed, mature, LGBT friendly, international multi-game community of adults! We are actively seeking members who would be interested in making new friends and being a part of a long-standing group of internet nerds on Discord. No worries if you are casual in play-style, busy in real life, don’t have max level characters, etc- all types of gamers are welcome here!

We often run content in "flavor of the month" games, as our members (and the members of our sister guild, Relics of Orr [RO]) get interested in the New Hotness but need friends to complete specific encounters, storylines or missions. In the past we've played the Original Guild Wars trilogy, Left 4 Dead 2, Trove, Ark, Secret World, Rust, Maple Story, Dead by Daylight, Warframe and Rocket League. Interest in these games comes and goes, but we always come back to GW2 when there is a new story episode or festival to enjoy! We will never leave GW2- but we'd like to be honest about our activity that waxes and wanes as Arenanet slowly gives us new content. If you're looking for a guild full of daily activities and round the clock gameplay, we wouldn't be the best fit. But if you're looking for a steady place to come back to game with as content comes out, we're a comfy home!

[Oops] in GW2

We are on North America's Blackgate server, but all NA players are welcome to join us! We're an 18+ guild, with most members being in their 20's and 30's. Our roster size is around 200~, with our core group of actives being much smaller (around 40), so we end up feeling like a cozy, smaller guild. Its akin to having a solid and friendly group of regulars at a tavern when old friends blow in from time to time. We're most active from around 4 hours around daily reset, and especially during Festivals and after Living Story updates. We have several Discord members well versed in the current GW2 PvE meta and will be happy to help you or give suggestions for build or class choice.

Our inactivity rule only exists for those who do not take part in the guild community and never advance past the 'new member' rank- after 3 months of not logging in, you will be regretfully kicked, though welcome to rejoin if you started playing again!

Our "Guild Event Time" is 8pm Server time (GMT) on either Sunday or Saturday (2 hours max). Most events will be announced two weeks in advance and happen during this time slot. This allows our EU and NA based members to both enjoy the event, without getting really late into the night for those in europe or further east. Typically events are not held weekly due to interest. If you are interested in running events, there will likely be positions available in the future!

Outside of Guild Wars 2

We highly encourage all members to join and participate in our guild Discord server. Discord is truly the backbone of our guild and the fastest way to get involved in the community. Even during times of the infamous burnout, people will still be in Discord talking about the game, playing other games together or chatting about all sorts of topics- from "look at this sweet dessert I just baked?" to "What do you think about my fashion Wars in this picture?".

There will be no pressure to immediately jump into a voice channel with a bunch of strangers, chat in text and get to know us first! We use the voice rooms for coordinating in various games- Overwatch, for raids or high end fractals, and for the occasional short game of D&D!

Our guild is built around good atmosphere, a desire for friendly conversation and the general rule of “don’t be a jerk”. Racism, sexism, homophobia and other derogatory words and content are not tolerated. We have no room for toxic drama, malicious intent or other forms of negativity in our guild. We aim to be an inclusive and safe space for all members, and in the spirit of that, we have a #Serious channel where we can just talk about real life for a bit, if any of our guildies are going through a rough time.

Full rules are available on our tumblr. Please read them before asking to join!
We will ask to make sure you're okay with the rules as we uphold them in game and in our Discord.

Guild Perks:

-Getting to wear our fabulous unicorn emblem (his name is Percy!)
-Fully upgraded guild halls in GW1 (Isle of Meditation) and GW2 (Windswept Haven). The GW2 hall comes with maxed out daily harvesting nodes, a complete selection of buffs from our Tavern, and all the decor you can handle!
-[Oops] Social Media: We've made our unicorn mark across the internet! We have a Steam group page, a Twitter, a Tumblr and a Facebook for you to join.
-Website: We maintain a guild website full of information and resources put together to help you out in game.
-Discord: Full of various text and voice channels for you to use and bots that dispense information or rank you up the more you chat. In game guild chat a little quiet? We're probably here!
-Guild Prom: Yes, we're that cheesy! We hold an annual in-game prom party with all the fixings- bring a friend!
-Guild Holidays: We celebrate Halloween each year with costume contests, Wintersday with Secret Santa, and our guild birthday in November with some special treats! At times we have celebrated Valentine's Day, the coming of Spring and even GW2's birthday.
-Games: During our guild events or scattered throughout the year, you might see raffles, Steam key giveaways, forum contests, fashion games, screenshot competitions, hide and seek, jumping puzzle races and our very own riddle-based KormirApproved Aggro Quest!
-Watchalongs: Every year we gather up in Discord to watch Eurovision and E3 together. Must see tv!
-Raids: We have relaxed raid trainings for newbies to learn mechanics of each fight. Veteran Raiders can answer the call for a sub or even replacement from our best friend guild, Relics of Orr [RO]!
-Achievement Hunting: Our guild is big on collecting cheevos. If you need help getting an achievement, ask in guild chat or in Discord and chances are there will be others who will help or need help!
