I would like to remind people of our tags and there meanings and a little story that happened last weekend....
Blue = would be for a defense or a non hoping map group. This group is stationary and there job to keep or stay on a map unless really needed and called upon.
Red = Map hopping, this group will jump maps to bring the fight to enemies on all sides, there general goal is to raise PPT or follow enemy units to prevent enemy advancement.
Gold = In my opinion the most needed tag, the most misunderstood tag we currently have. This is for Guild groups who may have goals outside of the norm, maybe its training, working on fighting skills, could even be havoc or general play. I think it is important for everyone to realize that back in the day before all these colors, guilds would run without a tag. It would give the impression of elitism, isolationism, just in general not inviting to people. By allowing them a color you know that you are welcome, however there goals may very from the norm.
Purple = Havoc groups, groups out just taking objectives to create havoc on the enemy.
So the story....
Saturday nights prior to SORC's event I run [EVIL] out in WvW, more of guild training/havoc. We usually number 5-10 people, and we use this time to do general training within the guild. I have tried to tag up for these and invite everyone. Unfortunately every time we tag up for this event we get called out and guilt tripped into something other then what we intended. We where running Saturday ticking up PPT on an enemy BL when the commander for EB decided to tag down, we were asked at first to move over to EB and provide a tag ([not a big deal as asking never hurts and I don't want to discourage that] Just keep in mind when you are asking a yellow tag to now come over and do Blue tag work that it may not work out.) Needless to say after we where asked more forcibly(guilt tripped) into moving into EB I lost 75% of my follows and at that point it was a mess and ended up just tagging down. Moral of this, if you see a yellow tag, please realize that they are doing something within or with there guild. They are putting up a tag to welcome people to join, but there goal unfortunately may not be what you think it should be. If that commander or person says sorry, we are doing an event or sorry that we can't currently do that.... Please respect that. I have no problem if you want to put up a tag and pull members with you, just don't expect us or the commander to switch. I have enough of a hard time keeping my guildies on my tag and trying to keep there experience fun, let alone throw them to the wolves. If they stay with me on our guilds goals and have fun, maybe they will get bit by the WvW bug and they will be following you soon enough.
