As promised here are the changes that will happen within Senate Guard in the next couple of weeks: The calendar: We will try to cater towards all types of content not just Ops. This will now include Heroics, Flashpoints, Uprisings, PVP and of course Ops (Story Mode via Group Finder when possible and Hard Mode). Heroics, Flashpoints, Uprisings, PVP events will be running the whole day so people will not feel pressured to log in at a set time if they want to do a certain activity. Operations however will be as usual at 8 PM UK time.
On that note for Operations priority will be given to signups, assuming we can get a proper group setup (2 Tanks, 2 Healers, 4 DPS), and of course to the players that are on time (unfortunately we can't wait to see if 1 player will log or not and waste the time of 7 other people).
Guild Ranks "Idle" timers: From my perspective, there is no need to keep a character that has not logged in for a long period of time in the guild (except for leaving the main character of players who contributed in a way or another to the guild development), so for Recruit there will be a 30 days timer after which the character(s) will be removed, Member will have a 60 days timer, Veteran and Officer will have a 90 days timer. If you have a real-life problem, activity, etc. which prevents you from logging in please let one of the officers know and this will prevent your characters being removed from the guild.
Officer changes: We will have 3 types of Officers: Conquest(Social) Officers, PVP Officers and Operations Officers. The main reason for this change is that we cannot expect 3-4 officers to constantly run these all these activity’s without getting burned out.
- Conquest(Social) Officers: will oversee running Heroics, Flashpoints, Uprisings and when needed Group Finder Ops.
- PVP Officers: will be in charge of forming and leading PVP groups (either in warzones or hunting down imps on planets for some fun or even invading enemy bases).
- Ops Officers: will form up and lead groups in Hard Mode Ops and eventually Nightmare Mode Ops.
All Officers will be limited to 1 character only on that rank, and we will have open applications for Officer ranks.
Also, please keep in mind that if you are an Officer, and you do not help run these events the entire "work" will fall onto someone else and in time it will burn out people. To try to avoid this situation if an officer does not help at all to run these events, they will be demoted to their previous rank after 30 days’ time.
