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. 

 

Video guides and gameplay for blob classes can be found in this playlist , ( click on the top left to see the playlist ):
have a look and study movement and skill usage :


Piken recommended tag colours:

Blue = Open, 
Pink = alt Open
Red = Havoc or Range Tag, 
Green = alt Range or open
Purple = Scout, Alternative Guild Tag
Yellow = Guild Raid, (closed raid, so please respect that)
Orange / White= Invitational / TS only Raid, 
Catmander tags are same as Dorito tags 

Guilds can ofc use the other new colours at will for secondary tags as they require them

maybe this?

Addition to Rule 10: go to EB keep when you are going to WvW to fill up your supps first, before going to the borderlands.

Not sure because during the matchup we can need supplies at EB Keep. It is a good rule if you take before is going to start the new reset.

TBH I'd rather a pug to run around with no supplies vs. if he wants to drain a just-defended keep.

Think about... that was the words. but in all honesty, require player to know what to think about, so still a fair point.

(No, on every server, I am NOT getting fed up with those that drain a keep, and less then 500 is drain, IF not low tier - like... THINK about... )

Fair bump, thank you Duca.

I have been looking aswell for a good Revenant tutorial after yesterday. Anyone who has a good video who describes the Revenant build fairly well?
 


I think for Scourge, this video works quite well to learn the basics. I prefer staff a lot though, he doesn't seem to like it very much. The idea of his shade bomb and how to use skills are quite good though.

Decent guide (better than his burn fb...) A bit too long winded. Just reading the skills...
General rule is to only use staff when a fight consists of plenty of pirate-ship and not a lot of melee engagement.

      What am I, a chair to be re-upholstered?! :o I thank you for your kind words, but no, I can't be "recovered". I've never been a part of forum Piken & what I've seen of it this last week or two is... poisonous. And wouldn't I look a complete twit if I came back in whatever capacity. Nah. The forum has always done, well, whatever it's done without me, and the meeting... Can be whatever it wants to be & good luck to any who care to board that ship-that-might-well-sink! But thank you for thinking kindly of me. I can't remember who said it, but someone said words to the effect of "Dukey stepping down was an excuse to..." I don't know if you're a football fan, but I think I know how Moyes felt following Fergie at Man Utd!

      My apologies. You're obviously not the same Chris (Kiwi = NZer). He infected meeting after meeting, week after week, demanding (in his whiny Kiwi blocked nostril voice) that guilds should be given special privileges (for GvG fights). Particularly at reset, but also seemingly wanting it every day of the week. Without ever offering a damn thing to Piken. Oddly enough, he disappeared after I (politely!) challenged him in one meeting, but I think that was because he belonged to the link server & we changed link a week or two afterward. I claim no credit!

      But where I do claim a little credit... I did say "If..." Wherever your first answer to me was, it was an unfortunate coincidence of name & your tone was sufficiently like... that it put me in mind of... I'm apologising now & since this is private, I'm not doing so for public "glory / ego" or whatever. And the reluctant thing  that was one bit you rather sneered at? Turned out I meant it, eh?  
      Regards,

      Please do not leave - there are obviously diverse opinions here - but yours is still valid for a good number of silent people

      Yay - found you! No idea what sort of picture - well ... something where we look sort of threatening and fierce and like Bruvs from criminal class/ inner city - Kray Brothers comes to mind. When I am looking normal I get attacked bu solo players (and die ofc). When I am Bruv, solo players run away from me! Think it is a bit like being a snowball or a ... damn, those cute fat things with short arms. no one attacks them! And Svarty is always trying to keep me alive - he is sooo nice! I will have a chat with him and see if he has any ideas, hugs
