DV Newsletter Archives

Recommended Posts

Lelling    191

Back due to popular request :D

This is a compilation of all newsletters sent out in DV.

Each post contains a separate newsletter, with the subject name in bold, the date it was sent out in square brackets, and the content of the newsletter in the quote block. On occasions where there were two slightly different versions of the mail (such as when DV had two guilds), there are two quote blocks in one post.

Note that since January 2017, the first part of each newsletter contains member-specific information regarding member activity, which will not be included here.

DV-2 Founding Message [Sent out between 25.-28.9.2015]

Quote

"Hi ^^

Due to being at 500 members for a while, with new members constantly pouring in, DV has recently opened a second guild.
To suit everyone's needs, the two guilds are slightly different.
 
DV1 - partially represent, optional guild missions
DV2 - no representation, no guild missions

Members of both guilds get whisper notifications for events, and mails for news. If you don't represent, DV2 is exactly the same as DV has been for you so far =)

Please respond which guild you'd like to be in!"

DV Guild Mission Changes [Sent out on 20.11.2015]

Quote

"Hey DV peeps :3

HoT has changed the way guild missions work, and we had to adapt our GM strategy. Here's a quick recap:

1. Guild missions can be triggered whenever, for no cost, by a Coordinator, Officer or Leader

2. We do organized Medium & Hard PvE missions on Sundays at 19:00 CET.

3. Other missions (Easy, PvP & WvW), can be done by 1-5 people, and are triggered upon request.

If you're not interested in guild missions, please consider moving to DV-2, as DV-1 is almost full again. Thank you!"

Quote

"Hey DV peeps :3

HoT has changed the way guild missions work, enabling us to offer GMs for DV-2 members as well.

1. Guild missions can be triggered whenever, for no cost, by Coordinators, Officers or Leaders. 

2. Easy Missions can usually be completed by about 1-5 people, so they can be done by anyone, anytime.

This means whenever you'd like to do a mission you're missing, just poke us, and it'll be triggered for you =)

P.S.: If you'd like to do more GMs, you can move back to DV-1 =)"
