A few weekends ago SoV conducted our first server raid on Gunbound, raiding server 8. Between 12-15 of our members got on for a few hours and we raided the server. We dropped into any open games in an effort to run people out of our own room or be kicked for winning (in which case other SoV members would drop into the room to take their place).

To an extent we were successful (considering the awkwardness of playing avatar on), and by the end of the night we had several rooms where the room masters had changed the name to "OMFG SoV sux" after they kicked all our members. (I realize now I should have screenshotted that, it was funny) We did manage to prove server raids were able to be done on Gunbound.

Which leads to our current dilema and why I'm posting here. We want to raid server 7, which at any given time is 5-10 times the size of server 8. We would be seriously undermanned if we were to try it. I would like to know if any other guilds would be interested in joining a coalition of guilds for taking over server 7, which when organized could be done every weekend.

This would have several advantages. First of all, it's fun to run people out of their own rooms. It would bring a spotlight of attention for players to come to GBGL, making this site a much bigger place, which would be a good thing if the league and ladders were set back up. The guilds involved in the raids would also gain considerably in reputation.

SoV has a ventrillo server, and we could pick a specific channel on server 7 (SoV uses channel 6) to coordinate members of the various guilds.

Any takers?

It's one thing to join rooms with only the goal of finding challenging competition, but it's another to actively try to anger and solicit kicks from strangers. For the same reasons, this doesn't seem likely to bolster anyone's reputation...

We really aren't trying to get kicked, it's just a result of winning repeatedly. People get frusterated and will kick you. Usually people who camp out in a room are expecting a random enemy team, having a guild that knows how to play and has played together before seriously decreases their chances of winning.

I'd say u'd be surprised :P It's really hard to beat his teams, I think that at most I managed to beat his team like once with no teammates, and that's cuz sum1 left during the game

and I have did the same thing on SoV rooms and had much more success :)

Alright, SoV is now actively planning a new round of raids. We don't have a set date, but March 3rd or March 10th would be nice days to do it. What we want to do is take over server 7, which is far too big of a server for SoV to do ourselves.

We want to hit every room people are playing in. We want people to leave one room, enter another, and see all the same guild wreaking havoc. This should be a lot of fun and would make any guilds involved more well known on gunbound, though it would be more effective if we were to raid multiple days.

I figure ACES and nS`T would be the biggest help in raiding server 7, though if other guilds wanted to join in as well, it would only make this bigger and more interesting.

Anyone interested?
