View Full Version : <Maelstrom> West Guild

My name is Miles and I am the GM of <Maelstrom>.

We are a medium sized guild and part of the initial rush of people who server changed when Ezi went live. We were the first mercenary guild on Ezi and will continue to be a part of the community. We are not a zerg guild and pride ourselves on our accomplishments and services we provide are second to none.

The Services We Offer

- Trade Pack security (We will not carry your packs just protect them)

- Sea protection with multiple Galleon support

- Farm quest taxies

- Additional firepower for your needs

- East or West does not matter! We do not kill clients on either side.

- Auroria castle siege support

- Anything else you want to pay us for…

Our Mercenary service is a very simple process. Just contact myself, Eab, or Bic and we can get you where you need to be. We have the first documented cross faction mercenary contract http://forums.archeagegame.com/showthread.php?79159-lt-Maelstrom-gt-Guild-Trustworth-even-Cross-Faction.-Server-First-documented-cross-Faction-job-complete. With our naval fleet thriving and growing every day we can get the job done for you. We have prime land claimed throughout the west and on Freedrich. If it needs to be killed we kill it. We are not a NBSI (not blue shoot it) type of guild. We consider every situation different and proceed accordingly.

Recruitment is OPEN. If you are interested in joining us PM, apply on the website, or drop a line in the thread. We do communicate through mumble and like our players to be on comms to coordinate our efforts more efficiently.

If you are looking to join <Maelstrom> we now require an application process through our forums. http://maelstromguild.forumer.com
Just a few quick requirements that need to be met:
1) Minimum of level 30
2) Must use Mumble during our pvp raids and mercenary contracts

You may see us on the sea or land. Just look for the <Maelstrom> tag and hit someone up if you want more info. Nice to meet you all and may we see you soon with sword in hand.

My IGN is Batsaias. I started yesterday and was able to get my glider and upgrade it, but I can't play a game without being a part of a good group or guild. I am new, but always a team player and love PvP.

I am a Trickster (shadowplay, archery, witchcraft), but am willing to change my witchcraft for something else. If you have any ideas on what would make a better PvP, I would greatly appreciate the help. I'm just experimenting with my 3rd class trying to find out myself.

Is Maelstrom willing to take a new 23-year-old, Lv.13 Elf, eager to sail the seas, as a promising new recruit?

09-22-2014, 10:10 AM
You can hit me up in game around 6PM CST M-F and pretty much all day long on the weekend.

Are you guys planning on staying west, or do you have aspiration of Piracy?

Maelstrom Miles
09-22-2014, 12:27 PM
Well seeing as I was the first on the server to have a trial, I would say piracy is kinda inevitable. Not sure on the time frame as we have a lot of infrastructure already established and to maintain in the West.

Will your guild be focusing on naval trade or simply PvP? Do you have teamspeak/vent? Are you more geared to older (25+) or the younger crowd?

Maelstrom Miles
09-22-2014, 01:37 PM
We will be focused on PVP and naval trade at least for the moment. We are not sure how the naval trade will factor in once the server grows to have other guilds in the waters with us but PVP is defiantly a big focus for us. We use mumble for our voice communication. We have a wide range of ages with our youngest being 16. Age is not a factor for us as long as you are mature and can handle crude language at times. We tend to get loud and excited about things (especially me :D) and we are not ashamed of it in the least. We do not tolerate massive amounts of trolling, though some is OK in the right settings.

Hey Miles.

I'm definitely interested in joining your ranks and seeing all AA has to offer with a good, coordinated Guild. Although I'm currently F2P, once the seasons change I'll have more free-time to put a Patron Subscription to use. I play a Nui Blighter, level 12 (love the heavy weapon Warrior types), and am usually on after 7pm CST.

IGN: Ingram

Thanks!

EDIT: Although I have zero problems being on the High Seas, my true goal is to own a Tractor and a Race Car one day...I'm from Alabama, so we rednecks love our farm equipment & race cars.

I hired Maelstrom for a clipper run across the sea, for the large scarecrow quest about 20 minutes ago. They got me there alive and I was able to turn in the pack in addition to getting the quest credit. Great job. I'll definitely hire them again.

My character names is Ouse, serving as a Warpriest (archery, sword, and vitalism) and would like to join your organization. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have of me. I will seek you out in game when I next log in.

I enjoy most serving as a healer and have done so for SM several times now. I also enjoy very heavily the crafting and goods production.

Thank you, sir!

We do certainly perform trade runs and craft. However, our main external focus is on providing mercenary services whenever needed.

Yea it was fun. We lost the Galleon to ♥♥♥♥ty game mechanics in the harbor to a guild with more than 5 times our numbers but it wont happen again. We learned a lot from that run but good on you guys for taking advantage of the situation. See you on the battlefield even if you guys swarm the hell outta us haha

Don't really know how we are classified as a zerg but ok.

Anyways…it has forced us to push someone to 20k alchemy as fast as possible to get that big boat back on the ocean. It will be out rolling soon enough. Would love to fight LC again but I just really don't think even with our Galleon our numbers will be able to compete. Such is the life of open world pvp zergfest.

If you have questions regarding recruitment hit up the contacts from the guild list. See you guys on the battlefield!

The one time we fought you guys you had about 40 people vs our 6. Last I checked that would be a zerg. But your zerg defiantly pails in comparison to LC they have like 550 members. However LC are pretty terrible so they need those numbers.

At the time we fought, there were about 15 of us, 3 groups in a raid. But yes, almost triple the amount of people you had with you so I can see the confusion.

Hey there,

Just want to thank both Bic and Eab for taking me along on the journey from Dewstone to Austera. You guys were great.

Bic and Eab are a couple of conscientious players. I needed help getting a quest completed and they were kind enough to help. Bic explained that this quest required us to go into hostile territory and that I would be in for a fight as soon as we got close to the region. Sure enough, There were several enemy players waiting to rob players like me of my hard-earned loot. I will come back stronger and make sure that they learn their lesson one day!

Thanks for the fun. If you guys are looking to recruit, I'd be happy to join up.

Big ups! Would recommend them highly and ask them for sea trade routes in the near future!

Hello. I am in need of passage to Austera to complete the trade pack delivery for the large scarecrow farm quest. My in game name is Mystykyl or Jubilation. I will try to contact one of you next time I am online. I am USA Central and I do not play during prime time evening hours (RL family time) so it would be late night or during the day, whichever is more convenient.

Mystyrys, I would take that offline (you can send an in forum PM) as there are pirates who are watching for trips like this and paying cash for those that tip them off... I don't know how serious these Pirate folk really are about looking for leads and you may not be a big enough target but regardless I would use caution... Post your success afterward & give a good word for the Mercenaries that gave you good service but don't post anywhere public more details than you need to prior to the mission...

While this is totally a concern in terms of piracy, the fact that no times are discussed outside of game, i see this as a non-issue regarding interception. A few hours is a huge window of time on the open sea. Pirates will always be abound, and if one were planning a very high-yield mission, then yes definitely keep that in game/voice comms.

Thanks for the free bumps guys! It was fun being camped by 11 lvl 50 Purple Drank guys while we had only 4 50s in our raid AND we had trade packs.

This was no client run just our own guild run. We came up there with 11 packs and managed to only lose 3 to this "elite" group of pirates. So good, so strong, much epeen! Not to mention after you guys came back for round 2 when we had no trade packs AND we were fighting LC and DB you guys still were so horrible. Get it together PD...thought you guys were better than that.

I know this request will just blow right by you because you are a bunch of trolls and scrubs but in the future please try to keep all troll posts out of the recruitment and ad threads. If you still feed you must troll us please start a new thread to call us out but get your facts straight.

We came back and purged our island of the filth Maelstrom, LC, DB. We wrecked you all.

Thanks :)7Shadows,

I only spent one mission on their Mumble VOIP so I can only speak to that time but I found them fun yet working hard to be well coordinated on their mission. They willfully curtailed their language for the mission as I wanted my daughters' characters to get their 16x16s and thought it would be fun for them to hear a Mercenary team in action protecting them even though they were "red" to us so after discussing before hand I had them on THX surround sound with daughter & my wife nearby and can attest that no one got their mouths washed out with soap (I am pretty sure my wife even smiled at one of their jokes but she won't admit it)...

That being said from what I observed, while they certainly aren't F-bombing just to F-bomb, I got the impression that they are regular fun loving gents and do have some colorful language including some irreverent humor as is typical in almost every guild chat I have ever been in. As a retired Naval Officer I literally know what it is like to 'cuss like a sailor' and they are no where near that level but if you are going to have wife/kids coming in/out regularly you likely will need to play with a headset on or have guild chat in just one ear so everyone can continue to let their hair down. If you previously used to cuss a lot (like I used to) you will maybe need to discipline yourself to not return back to those ways as that is normal with guy activities (poker nights, gaming, etc)...

Regarding fit, from what I read in your post it looks like you are looking for a 'Paladin Council' type guild and I am not sure if there are any like that on AA anywhere yet (East or West) though if I come across one I will post about it (and would appreciate you posting as well if you come across one). I got the impression they are certainly loyal to their customers and honorable in their transactions but didn't get the impression that they were striving to be Paladin types...

Miles, Bic, Eab and team can speak for themselves but those were my impressions from my limited time with them (in summary a very favorable fun loving Mercenary focused group that I would hire again). If you want more info on the mission you could read here:

Our open recruitment is coming to a close and will soon require a reference or application process. We do have colorful language but I absolutely do not tolerate racist or aggressive comments. Again if interested please contact us in game and we can discuss it more in depth.

Yeah, we were involved in that fight, we were hella unorganized during that. Half of the group were across the island when we started engaging the group of 3+G/2P's. Last night was merely just a pass the time kind of thing, nothing organized in the least. Not at that time though, I logged shortly after that.

you obviously don't understand what loki is saying, we don't sit around and baby sit every individual doing there thing, we organize groups for activities on occasion like for a contract. if miles and a few were hanging out at freedick then its because they are dicking about.

and should a remind you of the other night where you ran into a group of mael and pornstars and your whole group was wiped there in sand deep adn sent to jail, i must say it was pretty unorganized of you guys to rush in 1 at a time........

You're right, we are more often unorganized than not during these spur of the moment 4-7 man groups. Last night being no exception, but we have had our share of organized groups that pay/turn out much better. At least I'm not resorting to just calling other people bad and recognize the fault in which it lies.

With that, I'm also not going to argue with you on whether a group of 5, or even 1, randoms takes orginization. Each situation is typically different when factoring in player skill/gear level.

I wasn't there so I can't comment or be reminded, but I agree that sounds dumb... which really tells me it had to be one of the fng. Though I don't know who you would have killed in Sandeep... who was rushing in one at a time? I should also note that I love how every single western guild that claims to do anything noteworthy always has to include another guild because they are too terrible alone to do anything. The east is so much better than the west.

P.S. We have never been 'organized'. Everything we do is "Hey lets go do this... <throw out an invite> and go do it. Maybe we should host some events so we can get organized. Fishing trip anyone?

lol Chibi...I definantly got 4 from you guys because I made a comment last night on mumble "why are these only worth 3 gilda" then realized people been turning that pack in like mad. Don't act tough because you got a kill. It is pretty easy to kill someone if you keep rushing back from the Nui. We accomplished our objective of taking the majority of your trade packs so it is a win in my book :D The pvp kill number means nothing if you can't do what you came to do, unless of course you only came to kill. Which you didn't.

we only had 6? 3 were lost,1 was lost then recovered. Why are you trying to avoid the fact that 2 under leveled greens 2 fresh 50 greens. And 2 quest geared pirates were able to own and fight off all of you with packs on? I was only come to told to bring my pack and put it down at the place for the guy to turn it in. Which i succeeded in,they expected only 1 of the packs to make it,but they got 3 in. So yeah,you guys got owned and you cant take that in xD.

Say what you will Chibi but you didn't turn in anything lets just be honest here. I will not make excuses like you do. Sure there are times when we get our butts kicked but we didn't lose that fight for sure. I with I had taken a screenshot of taking your packs and the ensuing mails I received. It is ok though. I just wanted to explain the situation to you but your delusions of lost packs blinds you from the truth. Please reply to this so that <Maelstrom> continues to get free bumps :D

LOL That's pretty much exactly how it went down too. Another successful contract. Glad you guys got all your packs turned in.

Honestly, I think the pack that was lost belonged to some other crew. Someone said "incoming packs from the south". We killed 6-7 reds and someone picked up a pack (on the opposite side of the island). I was escorting him back when we got pwned by a sea of red. We almost made it, but died like 50 feet shy of turn in. That pack was lost. I think that's the only one we lost and it didn't belong to Vagabond.

It may very well had been that we recovered all of Vagabond's but just to be sure I refunded the money because I honestly couldn't say that wasn't ours. Either way it was a good run by everyone and hope to get many more like it.

Everyone listened on comms and thought I was crazy telling everyone to stay together and push forward towards the reds but they did as told and we got them turned in. We were going to stay and pvp after the job but 40-50 reds show up for backup and we decided that wasn't a good idea.

Great job to everyone at <Maelstrom> and thank you for the business <Vagabond>. We look forward to more business in the future.

7Shadows,

When I play I find that a lot of times my daughter, who is also 4 years, and my 6 year old son are sitting with me. I have yet to run across any language or content being spoken that I would have to keep my children from hearing.

I am sort of new to Maelstrom and I thoroughly enjoy playing with them as they are a very mature and fun loving guild.We communicate with the assumption that children are not listening, or at least I do. I swear in voice all the time. Use a headset. I stay out of comms most of the time though. I have prosthetic ears and I prefer it quite.Nickol, If your kids do play AA and they want to be on with other kids or on exclusively kid friendly voice chat you are welcome to contact Prif in game or PM me in the forums about you all joining <Creepers gonna Creep> (CGC). CGC is a kids and parents only guild at this point with 2 dads and 6 kids ages 7-13 IIRC. Basically the kids play much of AA like MineCraft & Farmland and do some exploring, trade runs, crafting, or PVE (most of the kids are in their 20s with a few at 30th level). I am going to leave at least one of my alts as an officer in the guild but will be pulling my mains out as I start to PVP just to not get the guild name associated with PVP. As a parent you would be welcome on vent anytime (it is available but optional) but wouldn't have to have a character in guild if you don't have any slots to spare. We do have a decent amount of land setup for guild and/or family access so if your kids are F2P don't have any land but want to raise some animals or what not I think we could help with that... Basically each of our current families have 3 accounts per family and all are currently patrons but we are in the process of converting some of our kid's accounts to F2P...

Otherwise I definitely would recommend a headset for general fun & freedom for those in almost any guild chat that I have been on.

The above being said, when discussed before hand, <Maelstrom> was willing to do a kid friendly mission... My 9 & 12 year old kids needed their 16x16 farms and since it was for them that we were doing the run I asked if they could listen in on the communications and Bic & crew agreed and did a good job moderating their communications. We even had 7 year olds listening briefly (they stopped by before brushing their teeth) with no issues... Being retired from the Navy I literally know how to curse like a sailor and old habits die hard so anytime I put on a headset I can slip myself but <Maelstrom> did great and the kids really enjoyed it...

Thank you for your Service Nodoze. Army 12 years here.

I'm not an officer or anything, so I don't speak for the guild as a whole. But I've never heard anyone say that we can't swear because children are in chat. I'm sure if the contract required it we could keep it in check (as the previous contract did). But on a normal day I don't hold back my language. I'm guessing Miles could set up a chat channel where foul language is forbidden, but that's just an assumption.

I also like to be able to cut loose when raiding or PVPing so I understand (I will likely be using my headset when I move my main to a PVP guild). Bic moved us to a separate channel with only the client and mission members and I was on headset while they did the mission briefing and discussed the parameters. Only after everyone agreed to the challenge did I put the mission on speakers (<Maelstrom> was on on THX surround sound ;-) and they were making my girls giggle a lot by saying hi, introducing themselves, & telling clean jokes (my kids couldn't really talk back but could hear fine and literally Laugh Out Loud).

We are here for you guys. If you require something specific, such as clean language, we are going to abide by the contract. We have built this guild to be at the service of our clients and will remain that way. We love to pvp and things get heated during it for sure, but if you were to listen to our comms during a pvp battle you hear clean and concise communication. Most of the leadership came from Eve Online and we know how to speak in a clear manor during our pvp ops. Most of the time it is a fun experience and our language does flow freely at times.

Moral of the story: We are here to help you get done what you want, for a price.

Hey Maelstrom,

I am currently level 50 on Ollo server and I haven't really been having a great time with my guild. They are great people but more into farming/trade pack running etc and not so much into organized PvP or PvE. I was also a noob to AA at release and really wish that I rolled a different class so I had a few questions about your guild.

1. For starters would you guys be willing to take a reroll?
2. What size is your active player base?
3. Do you guys run GHA and group PvP regularly?

Thanks :-)

LokiTricksterGod
10-22-2014, 01:31 PM
@Stugots

To start off by answering your questions:

1) With open recruitment at a close, we now only accept players at/above level 30. But attaining that level is super easy and quick.
2) We are not LC, Instinct or anything like that. We are generally evening players, but typically have at least a handful or two of players on at any given point. Message Bic, Eab, Miles, or myself (Lokilaufeyson) in game for more details on this matter once you've reached level 30.
3) Right now, we do everything. Ranging from GHA to Hasla to organized trade runs. Honestly, if there's something you feel like doing, chances are at least a couple others will join you.

You can check out our forums when you are ready to apply. The link is within my signature.

Thanks <Maelstrom> for another successful mission. I found some prime real estate coming up for demolition in a PVP zone during war time and was concerned that I would get ganked when I tried to claim it...

Was concerned that if I hired someone who was not trustworthy they could just kill me and take the property...

<Maelstrom> showed up in force ahead of the demo time and cleared the area of all potential challengers and then protected me while I claimed it and then built it to make it private.

Thanks again gents!

Thank you for your service!Nickol, I didn't go back and reread my previous post but wanted to be clear that it was in no way an attempt to induce you to move your main character from Maelstrom. We play on the East but if I was on the West and looking for a guild I would definitely look to Maelstrom first as they seem like a lot of fun...

Since you mentioned your kids were involved some in the game I was mainly trying to let you know that there is an actual kid's guild on the server that is only kids and parents and your kids would be welcome there to do farming or what not (we mainly do farming & trade runs in non-pvp areas with the kids & we have lots of land set to guild/family use for kids to farm). My reference for you having an alternate character in the guild was just so you could keep tabs on guild chat and what not if/when you ever wanted to or if you wanted to have an alternate character dedicated to farming and what not with your kids. As far as I know it is the only exclusively kid's/parent's guild on the server (currently 6 kids ages 7-12 & 2 dads). Both families have at least 3 accounts with 3 characters per account (some have 4) so in addition to kid's characters we have lots of alts for various farming/crafting/etc.

Regarding main characters I personally plan to move at last one main out of the parent's/kid's guild into a large PVP guild so I can take part in large (hopefully epic) battles once I get one to 50 so definitely would not be trying to recruit folk's main characters here for PVP.

Thanks for the thanks and wishing you the best of times to you and yours!

Do you pay the people who help with the protection runs? How much on average do your players make on a protection run?

LokiTricksterGod
11-06-2014, 01:57 PM
It all depends on the contract. For example, some trade runs we've done solely for pack worth at 2-5g per pack early on, and that was kept for guild stores and events. But some others we do indeed split between participants from the guild. It's a case by case situation.

As for average on protection run, since there is no set fee currently, its all negotiated at the time of contract creation. Hard to give a direct answer on this one.
