Hello, my name is Devour and I represent Aphotic Gaming (in game known as A P H O T I C). We have numerous ideas and plans if we are elected as Vanarch. Which we will detail in the post below. Before we divulge into any of these detailed topics we would like to give you a brief introduction of our guild.
Aphotic is a PvP guild that had its roots in Aion and has now sunk its teeth into TERA. We lead the only Asmodian faction to dominate abyss PvP across all NA servers and have played a pivotal role in ensuring that Valley of Titans would be the most competitive PvP server in TERA. We showed a willingness to work extensively with other like minded guilds which we continue to do in Tera. Another thing to keep in mind is that while I, Devour, may be writing this post and running for Vanarch, we run Aphotic as a Council. This means that whenever a decision needs to be made it is done with the consensus of all of our council members.
Here are a few of our plans and ideas we would like to implement if we are elected as Vanarch.
First and foremost we will be using policy points to promote PvP in our region. To do this we will open all skill trainers, vendors, trade brokers, and specialty stores so people don't have to leave our region to continue the fight. We feel like all of the player base should have access to these "life lines" at all times because they help make playing the game easier and bring a lot of functionality to each province. We would like to have all these things open and able to be used at all times because it creates less hardship on the players and is also convenient.
Our goal will always be to promote PvP and create a PvP rich environment. We plan on keeping PvP open in whichever zone we are elected in at all times because you as a player chose to roll on a PvP server and should be able to benefit from your choice. We do not promote a griefing environment and we will help promote this by aiding any player that is being griefed by a group of other players. We will try our best to keep our province in peak PvP condition, and we will supply plenty of willing and eager PvPers to our zone (namely our guild). We will also use the proceeds we gain through taxation to fund a Death Match tournament near the end of our reign in which all max level characters will be able to participate in. The winning team will get the entire pot of the money we gain from taxes.
Aphotic Gaming has a well developed website with an extremely active forum community. Our gaming community is very large and we will have a forum dedicated to political topics that arise in Tera. This forum will be open to anyone that has suggestions or feedback. We also will be communicating with other guilds via emails and IRC. We have plenty of social media so that the community can always be in touch with us.
We believe what is best for our province is an enriched PvP environment. With our guild being focused on PvP we feel as though the things that are best for our province are also best for our guild, and the server as a whole. If an issue does arise we will obviously put the province and its inhabitants ahead of our own guild.
I feel like our focus on PvP and constant drive to be the best and excel in everything we do will help benefit the entire TERA community on Valley of Titans. We want to help bring the best gaming experience to everyone and make sure that this community stays healthy.
We understand there are a lot of guilds to choose from in terms of voting but please ask yourself these questions before you cast your vote. Who is one of the most organized and well known guilds on the server? What guild has shown a professional attitude in the community? I am sure that even with the amount of trolling our guild has been subjected to we have come forward and shown a professional attitude. I do not think other guilds can show this amount of professionalism. If you would like this server to flourish and become bigger, and even better vote for Aphotic and I promise we will try our best to serve the public to the best of our ability.
