UPDATE 24 hours in:
I am proud to announce that in less than 24 hours, we grew to a roster of 60 active duelers, all recruited from Stormhaven duels and friends of duelers who wanted in. At one point, we had 34/51 online with all but half a dozen either dueling in Stormhaven or PvPing in Cyro.
We also have access to a guild hall containing attuned crafting stations of every set in the game courtesy of our resident crafting connection (a personal friend of mine) as well as my guild hall containing all relevant munduses. Both contain test dummies and centurions.
The guild is exploding.
I'm tired af, so I'm chilling for the rest of the night. Very proud of what we accomplished today.
What's up everyone.
I spent a pleasant 2 months recovering from burnout, but now I'm back. Over the weekend, I tracked down the person whom Sypher promoted to GM of Legend before he quit dueling in 2015, and I acquired the guild myself. It had been a dormant bank guild for something like a year now. I intend to revive it as the game's active dueling guild and the cornerstone of the PvP community which it once was.
For those of you who aren't familiar, Legend was founded on March 30, 2014, the very first day of PC/NA early access.
Yes, you can be the GM of two guilds. You just can't create guilds yourself if you already own one.
The game's official launch date was April 4. It thrived as the go-to guild both for top tier players to compete and for newer players to gather and learn. EVERYONE was in it, filling the roster, and the dueling spots were packed with people around the clock until about summer 2015. The removal of softcaps and capless CP system in 1.6 imbalanced dueling, and people began growing tired of it. Over the next year, participation slowly diminished until the guild went dormant in summer 2016. I led Legend for most of 1.7 through Dark Brotherhood, and Yoyuyi and I founded and ran a hardcore breakoff guild called Mighty during that same timeframe. Both guilds maintained over 200 members and relatively active participation until that summer. It was a lot of fun, but eventually the egregious imbalance of DB patch and the heavy armor apocalypse ended the fun.
But now dueling is regaining popularity. Whether it's because Morrowind and recent patches have improved game balance, or the infusion of enthusiastic new players, or that Cyrodiil is just that
unplayable, I cannot tell.
But small dueling tournaments among excited friends have been happening, a few half-organized dueling guilds have popped up, and I've seen a lot of new faces in Stormhaven looking to fight and learn.
We need that cornerstone guild back. Many of you will remember when PvP had "that" guild, the one which everyone was always hanging out in. With the decline of Legend, "that" guild moved to Mighty, then trading guilds, then a couple small scale guilds, then we just didn't have one anymore... With the revival of Legend, I intend to infuse the PvP community with new excitement for dueling and individual improvement at the game. I intend to facilitate friendly yet serious competition among players, and offer frequent tournaments with significant rewards on the line. I intend to facilitate networking between new and experienced players and recreate a place where we can all meet and get to know players from other social circles. I intend to restore Legend to its former greatness and give back to the community this sacred place that inspired and helped guide my growth as a player years ago.
