We are a gaming community built by friends that enjoy competitive gaming as well as just having fun. We are looking for social individuals that know how to act in a mature and professional manner (18+). Feel free to join us on TeamSpeak any time as a guest (after creating an account on this site).
WHO IS MOSTLY HARMLESS?
"MH is a competitive multi-gaming community. We recruit highly motivated players who either have the skills to compete at high levels or are willing to learn them. Members contribute what they can when they can - we do realize that real life gets in the way of our ‘sport’ at times, but we’re looking for fairly dedicated team members who put effort into their gaming; however, nothing is mandatory. If we can’t motivate you to come out, then we aren’t doing our job running a fun team-oriented guild - we’re more about the carrot than the stick. We view our membership as irreplaceable and treat them as such because we recruit, train and work with some of the very best, most mature and fun people around.”
- Rook & Kamie, Mostly Harmless Council Members
Not for Profit
Positive Teamspeak environment
Nothing Mandatory; More about the Carrot than the stick
PVP Focus but enjoy PVX (50%+ PVP during play time but varies with game)
Train for Success
Official Game Chapters usually have at least 1 event per week and 1 or more ‘training’ sessions per month
Unofficial Game Chapters are simply places to hang out socially.
We are a mid-sized guild - not a huge zerg guild, nor a tiny elitist guild.
Established and big enough to pull off some incredible projects and achievements.
Small enough to feel like a home.
"Mostly Harmless exists to make our play more skilful and fun.”
Average to high level of experience in Gaming
Play Guild Games 5+ hours per week (often 14+)
Get to know guild in Teamspeak (several hours per week)
Teamspeak Etiquette (comms clear when called)
Respond well to constructive criticism (e.g., "Careful about pulling forward of the group - try to stay in formation or you’ll overextend and get picked off.” or "When you write a comment like that people who don’t know you will think you’re insulting them and get their backs up and not listen. It could be rephrased like this...”)
Participate - Show up to a guild event once per week
Reciprocity - Help guild mates and they’ll be more likely to help you.
No cheating, hacking, exploiting. Report all bugs & possible exploits immediately.
No drama please. Avoid gossip. No harassing, trolling, griefing, and tone down language to be fit for streaming and sponsors (can swear, etc. but keep it ‘Adult’, not rated ‘Restricted’)
"You get out of life what you put into it. There’s little red tape here - if you want to step up and do something, get a Captain or Officer involved and I’m sure they’ll help you achieve it. We support initiative (we just don’t want to be waylaid by it, lol).”
Handle interpersonal differences calmly.
Ask for help if you can’t resolve something on your own.
Add a note to your name in teamspeak if you are streaming (and a 3+ min delay if you are streaming pvp).
Veteran Members (Veteran Members)
"Long time or very involved members that know their way around the guild culture.”
Help facilitate events.
Mentor and guide new members.
Team Members (PR, HR, Commanders, etc.)
"New or long time members who make the game more fun by helping out in a huge way.”
Help Chapter Captains and Guild Officers to make games more skilful and enjoyable for all members.
Some of the most important positions - these are the people that have been wonderful enough to take on more, but smart enough to avoid the higher levels of responsibility. :)
Captains (PVP, Social Co-ordinator, PR, HR)
"These people have stepped above and beyond and are very involved in the guild in one or more capacities (e.g., raid leading, interviews, videos, podcasts, hosting events, etc).”
1+ hours of volunteer work per week contributing to the guild (usually through out-of-game activities).
Get ideas and feedback from members and build consensus.
Fill in any gaps as necessary.
Guild Officers (Chapter Lead, PR, HR, PVP)
"Basically this is your Board of Directors - they help facilitate all major decisions in the guild and have individual areas of responsibility which they manage as volunteers.”
As per Captains, but have usually been helping the guild for a longer period of time.
Diffuse interpersonal situations that arise.
Generally try to present a ‘team image’ to membership.
All of the expectations listed above, plus work with all guild members to build consensus around goals.
Mostly Harmless Guild Rules and Guidelines
Have TeamSpeak/Discord installed with a working headset. Better communication = success and more friends!
Visit our website for important updates and contribute on the forums/Discord.
Represent the guild with good sportsmanship, whether it’s posting on forums, streams, or in game.
You are welcome to stream. Check with the group to see if they have any restrictions (e.g., no voice comms, hide mini-map, delay 1+ min).
If you encounter any problems, try to work them out as adults but if that's not possible ask an officer to assist.
During raids support the raid leader. Keep voice communications during raids to a minimum so the leader can give directions.
Cheaters and hackers ruin gameplay for everyone.This hurts our reputation and makes us look bad when applying for sponsorships and beta invites. If you encounter someone exploiting remove them from the your group or leave if you are not leader. If you are not sure ask. We regularly communicate with developers to get clarification as there are lots of gray areas.
