    Guild Wars 2 - The Greater Brony Alliance

    Copy Paste:

    Game: Guild Wars 2
    Guild Name: The Greater Brony Alliance [MLP]
    Server: Jade Quarry (US)
    Website: http://twentypercooler.guildlaunch.com/

    The Greater Brony Alliance is a guild formed from the union of two brony guilds, one of which was the old unofficial EQD guild that I (Sarda The Sage) made during BWE1 back in April because Sethisto was busy with TERA at the time.  The goal of this merger and the resulting guild was to create a large, active, and friendly community of bronies to act as the flagship brony guild for GW2.  As of right now, our website has 97 registered members, 49 of whom have logged in so far today (roughly 70% seem to be active or at least checking the forums).  With the flexible guild member cap in GW2, we have no plans to stop recruiting anytime soon, so we welcome any and all bronies to come play GW2 and explore Tyria with us.  If you are interested, apply on the website (don't worry, everyone gets accepted) and come say hi on the forums.  We hope to see you in Tyria soon!
