Where have all the American players/guilds gone?
Come back and start playing this game again!

@Athos I am open to organizing a second session a week (given that uni allows for it), but expect it to be difficult to keep alive, both for teachers and learners.
I definitely see how this would be difficult to keep alive. If this came together, it would be amazing to see it done during hours that are closer to American times. (I know this is not likely to happen, just a wish)
@Athos A basics course with personal assistance in general doesn't sound too bad though, definitely an option. What I however had in mind was doing something similar through videos instead (discussing for example weapon swapping, usage of skills for each bar, GvG mechanics). I find that the advantage of tutorials through videos is that everyone can re-watch them
This is an amazing idea, please do this! :)
@Ra Only if you want it to be about teaching again. For the last months it has only been doing scrimmages. Which is what the majority of the people wanted to do anyways...
Teaching a new player base is the only way to make GvG (Or any form of PvP) active again. The scrims last week were a blast, and I'm sure most people on these forums would just prefer scrims, but teaching is vital to guarantee an active future.
There could be 2 days of teaching offered, if enough people are interested. (Or 2 different times on one day)
First shift could be a GvG/PvP basics course, and the second would be scrimming.
@Athos I might post on the gw(2)guru as well, though same problem regarding an account.
Good idea, I bet you would double your turn out if you did this. I joined you guys last weekend for the first time (I had a blast, thank you for doing this), and can't say I saw too many truly "new" people. For the most part people knew what was going on. Reaching out, past the QQ forums will draw in a much larger crowd. Plus you could link this forum, drawing more posters.
It might be a good idea to post this information on the Guild Wars subreddit. I bet you would get a bunch of new people from there.
