  • SPECTRE Guild

    Greetings fellow HODAnians! We have a monumentous event nearly upon us: Guild Wars! There's so much excitement on the forums in anticipation of this contest. With the first Guild War right around the corner, I'm inspired to formally announce the existence of SPECTRE.

    Who We Are

    SPECTRE started out as an unaffiliated handful of forum dwellers that wanted to discuss battle tactics for PVP - the first being for Lyrium Fenris in the Tevinter Imperium event. To this day we do not operate really as a formal guild; every member acts without any guild constraints or requirements. Each is free to post in the forums at their own will. We have no hierarchy. SPECTRE represents the coming together of independent assassins based on a common bond: love for HODA and the brutally glorious competition that is PVP.

    Many of the SPECTRE members dedicate their personal time to share ideas, information, tactics, perform tests, start feedback discussion threads, and more. We greatly enjoy this game, are quite fond of this forum community, and appreciate the fellowship it encourages. How many places can bring together peoples from all over the world under one banner peacefully like HODA? That's something special worth contributing to.

    SPECTRE reflects this diversity as well. Our membership base encompasses female and male players located throughout the world. Varied opinions are encouraged as it adds to the richness of the chat room discussion. I find that I have become a better person and much more knowledgeable about various cultures after having spent time with such excellent and admirable mates.

    What Do We Look For In Members?

    1. Players that are quality individuals with good character
    2. Players that respect the value and quality of the forums
    3. Players that are passionate about the PVP aspect of the game and willing to compete to their fullest (roughly 8-10k past performance on banners in a PVP as a min)

    That's it....just be cool and battle with vigor. New player, veteran player, GCP purchaser, non-GCP purchaser...we have it all. If you have interest in joining please let me know. We are at the limit of 20 for this first guild war, but there will be more in the future and we plan on being around for a very long time.

    Good Luck!

    Good luck to all other guilds. I'm honored and excited to battle with you all. This is a pivotal moment for HODA, let's all celebrate by making a great showing.


    I'll post our current roster in a subsequent post.

    Much Props

    Lastly, much props to LD. He's worked extensively on this project and will soon deliver what was promised some months ago. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.

      Hi Johnny i just want to say this bro.
      You dont need to recruit at all.
      You are a true superstar bouth in the game and in this forum
      I think the best thng is for you spectres , the gang that has most knowledge, to make some cameo apperance in diferent guilds.
      I dont think any guild would say no if you and you gang would fight as guests for that guild. Maybe split even in diferent guilds. Every war different guilds. How cool isnt that. Its all for fun anyway bro.

      You have many friends on forum and you should only do guest fighting and enjoy life as usuall. .

      You have nothing to prove bro, you rock ;-)

          Aloha from the Pacific.

          Now this sounds like exactly what I and my friend have been looking for. If you guys still have room, myself and 'Max' would love to join in and contribute!!

          Max: 485-698-753
          Murphando: 489-911-193

          We both have fairly well rounded teams, lots of legendary characters and almost every epic (those are nicely leveled, tiered, and forted as well). The one thing we don't do is ever keep doubles of characters, so no teams of Elite Harlequins or Danariuses or Uldreds. However, that's never stopped us from reliably pushing into the 50+ sections of the top brackets and 25+ bracket for giggles.

          In all, if you have room, we would love to join!

          p.s. your teams are awesome! Always look forward to seeing what you, Jacknasty, Ethan Hawke, Baer Hawke, Andrey, and Ghost Chili (and of course others) are running.

            This was more of a "hello" post than a recruitment post We figured it was better than people wondering who those weirdos were with bars around their names!

              So the elite finally has a name. And a very fitting one I might add. Very cool.
              I still think you guys shouldn't recruit, you should hand-pick.
              Hmmm, maybe I am a little bit influenced by just having watched the movie "Kingsmen".
              Anyway, good luck to you guys, and I am very glad you are arround.

                @MG - thanks for the compliment - that's very flattering, but I really just look forward to fighting with my allies just like everyone else. This is a great day / event for HODA.

                I'm looking forward to seeing the Outlaws in action. Love the Bonnie / Clyde split. Very cool.

                @Primorac - Also, thanks for the compliment and encouragement. There are many elite teams in this event. We will have to battle hard just to place in the top 10. There's a lot of really great guilds that have been around for a long time and have fantastic players.

                          Indeed, just doing my part. Showing those that can only hire from the local taverns, the highly trained and skilled, can be brought down with a little thought.

                              I dunno. T8 had a great showing, esp considering the time difference and should also be considered one of the strongest( I like not quibbling about ordinals actually). It was certainly an honor doing battle with you.

                              Please privately contact the Community Manager in order to submit an inquiry regarding this behavior.

                              Off-Topic Posting
                              Taking over a thread by posting excessively off-topic is not allowed. Off-Topic posts and any responses will be moved to their own, new thread if possible, or else deleted.

                              Political Posting
                              Because political beliefs, like religion, are a personal and sensitive topic, avoid posting about politics on the forums.

                              Customer Support Inquiries
                              All inquiries regarding Customer Support should be routed through the online web portal for support. The Community Manager and Moderators are unable to assist with inquiries regarding support tickets. Posting your ticket number and requesting assistance on the forums will result in the post being deleted. Sending a Private Message to the Community Manager or Moderators about CSR Inquiries is not to be tolerated, and will be ignored.

                              Additionally, all interactions with Customer Support are considered confidential, and all issues are handled on a case-by-case basis. As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted.

                              Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games and a report to Facebook.

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:

                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
