    A guild In Alpha now.

    I'd like to first say, that OT isn't that bad of people once you take the time to interview some of them. Sure their ego's might be inflated but hell I don't see any of you trying to stop them

    I'd like to apologies for any spelling and grammar errors at this time.
    Anyway on with some fun facts for beta or new alpha players.
    "OT": Oran'Thul.
    Most players in the game will talk trash about them, typically saying how their just a no skilled zerg who don't have any strategy other than zerg, zerg, zerg. From what I noticed it was very zerg like, however skill? I have to give credit when credit is due, not many people can order/control large amount of players like Nekrage (leader of OT) can. So if you're reading this +1 for you sir. Other than that I'd say over half of them are in T2 gear or better, and skill wise they're a lot like you and me, they have some elites, and some more laid back members from what I gathered. Etherway they have feelings to, and that was my quest, to find OT's feelz.

    In Zergings defence, there isn't many ways to beat it. Unless you can plan, maneuver and kill them it's hard to beat a zerg without another zerg. In Archeage it's quantity over quality.

    So it's about 5am on a wednesday and I was sitting in Sanddeep when an informant of mine told me know that OT is on the hunt, I figured i'd join in.
    I'm not much for pking my own faction or pvp at all.
    I found myself meeting up with them at Ynystere


    When I arrived I was not welcomed with open arms, as you could assume, I kinda had to work my way into their rankings. After about an hour of watching them steal trade ship after trade ship packed with cargo and helping them out by CCing anyone who tried to attack them as they handed in trade packs, I eventually was able to follow them into unprotected waters. This was a nice feeling but at the same time I felt very out of place. When they got bored they did tend to pick on me seeing as I was a templar almost killing me letting me live with like 100hp then watch as I frantically heal myself. I'd assume it would be quite enjoyable if the shoe was on the other foot.

    (Mercs and White Order are merging)

    After getting a few packs myself from unknown people I really felt like I could get to work, so I got my pet out and started talking to them one by one.
    (I use my pet's rename function to communicate with them, it saves me having to learn their language)

    This had a mixed effect on them, I really got to say that they're a lot like you and me:

    "I don't play much, I just log on, get an invite to a raid and kill stuff"... "It's perfect for how I want to spend my time in alpha" - Player asked not to be named in fear of negative feedback.

    "Who do you think you are?"... "We kill all and anyone who stands in our way" - Sarite

    "Hey, do you want to build a snowman" -Notsopro

    "Go die" - A Rude Member

    "Are we done here?" - gungo

    The rest kinda either didn't respond, just killed my pet or said they didn't want to talk.

    ---

    After while we made our way back to Sanddeep, where they spend about a good hour getting more trade ships, It's funny how they always manage to get the ship, kill it, take the packs onto their ship, hand it in all in a fluid motion. I wish on the west we had this type of dedication.



    Here is OT going in for the kill, you can see how they use their numbers to overwhelm the trade ship with far too few members on it.

    After they take the ship they xport it over their ship and hand them in.



    They did this for about 2 hours in all and I'd say they took over 150+ trade packs. With a net worth of 600-1500g for two hours of stealing trade ships, all in all it's well worth. Even though they make it look easier than it is.



    Overall I noticed that their command and the way the handle things are smooth like a well oiled machine. they manage to keep a healer out of combat so he/she could resurrect the dead, while the range and combat healers were busy keeping their front line up, it was textbook strategy and it worked. When fights broke out I'd often fly away in hopes on not getting mixed up in the combat, but sure enough OT's thirst for blood often got the better of me...

    Over all I rate this guild with a 9/10. They know what they're doing, how to do it and there isn't much you or I could do to stop them. Their chain of command is noticeably remarkable as well as their leaders, they stand out. They didn't get a 10/10 due to their ego and every player hating them for taking their trade pack at one point or time. So next time you see one of many OT's members just remember they're human too


    TL;DR:
    9/10 guild with large egos but very well kept command.
    Also read it, it's worth your time.

    Please keep all OT jokes for ingame please.

    I'd like to make a side note here:
    I didn't kill anyone, Like i said above I try not to unless forced. I'm not a traitor to my faction because I'm just getting info on their guild for personal review.


    This is a post from the alpha forums, as you know by now I like to keep you all informed on what's up over there.

    I would, but I gotta get into the game first. I'm not rich like these people are, so I have to wait till I get invited into the game, or open beta. Then I will learn about the guilds and stuff. This guild might not even be on my server.

    Right now there is 1 server, we're all jammed packed. It's a living hell, tomorrow we'll all go our separate ways it's how things will be

    I would hope there is more than one server, unless the population dwindles to nothing.

    I did, and all its doing is pissing me off. I wanna play the new patch, experience the changes, not read about them. rawr. And even then, I dont know what server OR continent I will start on. I might end up lucky and be on a dominating side on a server with helpful no PKing PvPers willing to escort me to places to trade for little to no pay.

    Or I could get ganked every ten minutes I try to go on ocean bound trade route, who knows.

    I'm not trying to give OT a good name or a bad, I gave an unbiased opinion on them.
