    Welcome on Piken, I hope you will enjoy our community. Why you do not register your guild inside the Piken Guild area ? So everyone can see and know more. This is the link : https://piken.eu/index.php?/gc/cat/1-piken-guilds/
  3. Support from WvW, latest "developments"

    I think is a good idea, can be also to meet at LA and do a short video of thanks to them all. We can probably share some ideas may be Gruumsh you can talk with The Pope of dope and explain your idea during the friday meeting. My suggestion it is to do something short as video but of high impact.

  10. Forum Guidelines

    It has been agreed during server of 25.01.2019 to post the Forum Guidelines as guide for new or interested new users that would like the join the community. Here link : https://piken.eu/index.php?/guidelines/ Text : Purpose and Goal of the Piken Square Forums These forums were created to gather Piken's WvW forces in one area for the purpose of improved communication, brainstorming, camaraderie, game change discussions, sharing of builds, showcasing of guilds, problem solving and to make it easier to organise in-game events, both serious and for fun. For this to be successful and ongoing, the moderating team will act to respond to reports that alert to clear breaches of the following guidelines. The goal is to provide a fair and safe place for people to engage in community discussion that encompasses a range of views about issues. The Forum Team reserves the right to remove/hide any comment which breaches our moderation guidelines or interferes with the goal of goodwill and teamwork on the forum. Please don't post a comment which is threatening, discriminatory, slanderous, libellous, spam, advertising, uses highly offensive language, is of a political nature, breaches a person's privacy, wildly irrelevant, or for the sole purpose of flaming, causing drama, or negativity. Freedom of speech is nice in theory, however is not always practical on a forum moderation basis as all content is always visible to all users - we will do our best to uphold it, however at times it may be necessary to censor. Basic Forum Guidelines Threats/ Personal Attacks Threatening or abusive comments will not be tolerated, either towards individuals or groups. Discrimination Discriminatory remarks are unacceptable; this includes, but is not limited to, racism, sexism or homophobia Slander & Libel Don't make false or malicious claims about other people or organisations. Offensive Language Please don't swear to the level of x-rated. We really don't want to have to remove any comments with valuable ideas because of foul language. Different people have different opinions about what constitutes offensive language and the Forum Team will review offensiveness based on severity and context in each particular instance. Relevance While we appreciate wide-ranging discussions, we'd like to avoid threads derailing. Please don't engage in "trolling" or harassing (trying to cause trouble in an online forum just for the sake of it or to serve your own personal agenda). Privacy In addition to being mindful of your own, please always consider and respect other people's privacy. Private messages are private. Screenshotting and sharing personal messages you have received from others on the forum with third parties will incur an instant forum ban. Moderation In the event the Forum Team does remove/hide a comment due to a breach of our Moderation Guidelines the author will be notified via the forum report system. If this happens to you, please feel free to post a new comment that expresses your point of view whilst keeping our Moderation Guidelines in mind. Serious and repeat offenders will have their user registration blocked. If you wish to discuss a decision that has been made, please do so in private mail to moderators. Do not engage in public flaming and undermining of our community. Shoutbox Moderation The Forum Team is a lot more liberal with the Shoutbox due to its more casual and conversational nature. However, at time it may be necessary for us to delete a shout (we cannot moderate) or a whole flow of shouts if any of the forum guidelines are broken. A note will be left by a Forum Team member in the Shoutbox if this is the case. Shouts against our guidlines may also incur Warning points. Warning System In the event that warnings are issued, the following protocol is actioned. 1 Warning Point / Initial Warning - in place for 48 hours. This step is designed to warn a person that they have breached the guidelines and to encourage reflection on the issue. No further actions are taken. 2 Warning Point - in place for 30 days. This step is designed to warn a person that they have breached the guidelines again. Your warning means that all your posts will be pre-moderated for 7 days to ensure further breaches are prevented. You are also prohibited from using the shoutbox. 3 Warning Points - in place for 30 days. This level of warning means that you cannot post for 7 days to ensure further breaches are prevented. You are also prohibited from using the shoutbox. 4 Warning Points - in place for 30 days. This level reflects a ban from the forums. Re-entry to the forums can be negotiated with the Forum Team, but otherwise, this step is permanent. How our Moderators do their Thing On the subject of rules: - The rules come from the forum guidelines as explained above. - The moderators are not here to question these guidlines, or to make new ones, but to act upon them. On the subject of reports: - The moderators take every report serious. - Please consider carefully before reporting something as the report button is not a toy for people’s entertainment. On determining if a report warrants a warning: - In order to issue a warning for a report, the majority of the moderators agree on that the reported content is violating above guidelines. On the procedure of issuing warnings: - When a person is given a warning, the moderator that issues it puts a link to the forum guidelines and an explaination as to why the moderator team gave a warning in the “Message to Member”. This is to remind that person of the rules, and to explain what they did wrong. On the subject of unban petitions: - If a person has accumulated so many warning points that he/she is auto-banned, he/she can petition the moderators to lift the ban. It’d be nice if this unban petition contains the background of the problem and rational arguments as to why he/she should be unbanned. If the majority of the moderators agrees to the unbanning, the person is unbanned.
  11. Basic Guidelines for new wvw players

    As agreed during the meeting of 25/01/2019 Below you can find WvW guidelines and basic information for wvw players. Our community guild is: Stomp for Piken (PS) Join the PS guild discord on: https://discord.gg/2vzfXHC Server teamspeak adress is: ts.piken.eu and ask to be verified in map chat. Check your builds regularly on builds.piken.eu You can find more build resources using the following links: -Vabbi builds: builds.vabbi.org -ARMA builds: You can find more build resources using the following links: -Vabbi builds: http://builds.vabbi.org/ -ARMA builds: General Rules Rule 1: Don't put your own siege, leave it to the commander. If you want to get rid of some siege, donate it to a guild or a commander. Commanders plan the use of supplies. Rule 2: Don't repair unless each of the following happened: 1/siege is destroyed 2/people outside got in 3/no commander who wants to use the choke for fights. Rule 3: When scouting try to be complete: location (structure and siege placement, percentages), numbers, color. Eg: 15 kodash, 2 guild cata home bay ne, outer 50%. Rule 4: No troll food or siege. Keep tactivators, other siege and downies clean please. If you use EWP, announce in team chat. Don't use supply drop when structure is full of supplies. Rule 5: Don't man siege if you don't have the mastery. Don't man siege if you have a more important role (heals or pressure wall). Rule 6: Avoid getting marked (sentry or watchtower). If you get marked, try to hide the movement of your group by running opposite direction. Rule 7: Only claim structures when you have the necessary upgrades in your guild. Claim structures when you see unclaimed ones (necessary to get upgrades in and +5 supps) Rule 8: Stay near the Commander do not stay too far to avoid to be ganked and killed. When you're stacked you mitigate damage. Don't die off tag. Joining ts helps. Rule 9: Don't use mini's in wvw. They give away your location when you're stealthed (veil, mass invis, ...). Rule 10: Always pick up supplies. If you're out of supplies think about resupplying before (re)joining the commander. Rule 11: Passing through structures, refresh ('f') the siege. Unused siege disappears in one hour. Rule 12: Get speedy dollies in camps, use packed dollies if you're willing to escort and put swiftness on them. Rule 13: Rule of thumb for inserting tactivators: sabotage depot/iron guards/watchtower or presence of the keep - if you want to defend the structure. Rule 14 : Execute fast Commander inputs Rule 15: Have fun! If you have any questions,ask your guildies, use forum or discord or ask in game chat there's probably someone around to help out.

  12. [AGB] Angry German Blob Recruiting

    Nice :-) :-)
  13. Why?

    @Koryth , great you talk so we can clarify.
  14. Why?

    @Koryth , from what I see @GR0MIT it's not in the TS Forum staff. I am sure that @hotcatz or another TS team member can explain what's happened.
  15. Why?

    @Koryth , no problem it was done under request and I am very very happy that under request I could unhide and that BOB still appear in our Guild listed . We only act under request in such cases.
