SWTOR: Republic - The Gray Council

Are there any Gray Council GWJers playing on West Coast time? I'm currently in a family/close friend guild but two-thirds of people have quit and those remaining log off by 9 pm my time.

We took a little survey to try getting an idea of who would be playing West Coast times - it wasn't quite enough to fuel an Operation, but you'd be looking at about a half-dozen or so members. Of those, the majority of them are not Goodjers though, if that matters.

My RL work guild is finally getting to 50. (For those who play Lotro, it's Valacirca plus one other.) I think four of us are 50, with the other three at 48ish. We typically meet up Friday 8pm Arizona time, which is West Coast right now. From the rumblings at lunch with the half the guild today, I think we'll probably only stay in SWTOR for 2-3 months more & then hop to a new game, but we're often looking for one more and would be up for some endgame content tourism for the next few months.

I should be on tonight. Look for Coduri.

Cod, Nami gave you full member rights to the Gray Council forums. When your mates are ready to raid, you can sign up for them in our operations channel and we'll try to fill in a group for you.

Cool! Thanks.

how active is this guild still? better yet hows the game itself doing? I'm thinking of coming back to it next month, but my old guild seems dead on my old sever so I figured I'd join up with some other goojers if they were still around in game. I've got a lvl50 Trooper Vanguard that I would be bringing with me from my old server.

Opps...nevermind. gotta leave my old Trooper behind. Won't let me transfer it to Jedi Covenant.

Ouch - sorry to hear that, Zembonez. When you get a toon on Jedi Covenant, do a /who search and filter it by "Gray Council" to see who's online, then ask for an invite. Make sure you spell it right though - there's a "Grey Council" and "The Grey Council" on the server, too.

The community on JC is very strong. There's typically at least 500 active people playing at a time (250+ per faction). 1.3 Patch is due out next Tuesday and it comes with a whole ton of features, balances, and unlocks. You can visit the official site or GrayCouncil.com for a summary. The endgame is still pretty limited in my opinion, but leveling is becoming a lot more involved with a group finder and xp bonuses to suit your playstyle. If you wait until 1.3 to really get into the swing of things, it will almost feel like a different experience on JC. You will be able to grab a group to any flashpoint and instant travel to it.

humm...sounds interesting. I'll be joining up around the 1st of next month(thats when I get paid) I'll see about getting my 50 but I'm not going to be bummed if I can't.

I'm in the same boat as well. Come next Tuesday, I was debating about rerolling on JC.

*spit take* !!

Well, I never expected to wind up on Jedi Covenant, so I didn't think to check here. Pretty much got involuntarily transferred last week.

My lvl 33 Trooper and lvl 17 Knight say hello!

edit: Trooper: Rintako Knight: Lonnasa

I will have to check on whether my headset still works. The dang things fail so often, I've nearly given up on them.

Hey there ChipRMonk - I saw that you signed up on the graycouncil.com forums as well. I just gave you access over there, and I'll look for you the next time that I'm online. Hope to see you in-game soon!

Thank you. I may be in game tonight for a little bit, otherwise tomorrow. Had a RL fundraiser I had to attend most of the day today.

Hi all, just joined on the server.

"Vrikkian" is me. I can has invite?

Hey there Vrikk. Of course you can haz invite. Just look for a member online and ask to talk with a person with invitation privileges.

Alright. FINALLY got around to getting some game time. I'm on the server and I'll do a look for the guild soonish. Who should I look for to get an invite? just anyone or someone specific?

I'm not sure how the /who search functions, to be honest. I've yet to use it, myself. However, if you see someone in the Gray Council just ask if anyone who can invite is online. These would be people with the guild rank of Captain or higher. I'm also setting up your GC forum permissions right now, so you'll be able to chat in there if you can't find someone online.

Be sure to who search for Gray Council, not Grey.

The who function works ok, sometimes you have to refresh the search box twice.

/who Gray Council

Will bring up the search panel and usually list every player in your vicinity. Then you will see the magnifying glass at the top where the words Gray Council are listed and you'll need to push the button a second time. Then the list will properly refresh with all online members.

Then you /whisper any of the listed names until you find someone that responds XD.

The steam sale has me distracted, but I'm trying to fit some play time in this week.

We've had 6 new applicants this week. The guild has opened recruitment in order to fill more inclusive end-game content. We're only taking mature players with jobs or families from the general population so they mesh well with our GWJ base.

I've been sucked into a training class that's taking up my time for a couple of weeks. I will hit you guys up again first of next month if you are still taking people. Sorry about that. I thought I would have more of my evenings free.

I was wondering why I could never find you online XD.

No worries. There's always a spot for Goodjers, even if we close recruiting.

Thanks. I'm currently doing 4am to 6pm, quite a bit of it outside. Then coming home to do "homework". Wash, rinse, repeat. It's a military thing.

Military thing in Texas, but you have presumably good internet access. That sounds a lot like Good Buddy or Sheppard, Lackland at the outside.

Fort Hood, actually.

Different Branch of Service, same idea.

There's a lot of Army on most of those bases, actually.

Doesn't surprise me. My training class has some folks in it from down that way.
