- DVDF is an old Guild dating back to May 2005, since it’s inception it has grown to 93 members, from all over the world and which include some of the most respected and known names in the game.
- By retaining the roots of what made DVDF a fun place to be and adding to the goal of being a place where people can play, learn or develop into whatever area of the game they wished DVDF grew and continues to grow solidly in depth and breadth of player skill.
- It has enjoyed some success in PvP, but more so in PvE in which the Guild specializes.
- The DVD Forums [DVDF], has its origins from a large internet forum and gaming clan, these clans play a wide variety of games (RTS, MMO, RPG, sports and FPS) on virtually every major platform.
- The Guild’s philosophy is simple; recruit the best people, the best players from around the world and provide for them a place where they can learn, grow and make friends in any way they wish. We are here to provide them the tools and framework they needed to have the most fun and success in Guild Wars they possibly can.
- In addition we operate several initiatives to help newer players, including:
- Giving away items to newer players.
- Every Guild member is encouraged to assist PuGs whenever possible.
- We also run mostly Guild teams, with the sole purpose of helping PuG players through the most difficult parts of the game, e.g THK, Raisu, FoW Crafting runs and Gates Of Madness. These are done without charge or expectation of reward.
- Dedicated training sessions covering the whole variety of game mechanics and skills.
- The Guild works simply because of the people on the roster. They are some of the nicest most capable players we have managed to find anywhere in the world. DVDF and its allied Guilds have a remarkable family and close knit feel, which is rare in such a large Guild.
- The focus on teamwork, training, and community contribution make DVDF and its allied Guilds a very fun and constructive place to play. We are able to mobilize large numbers of capable players to meet a specific individual, Guild or community need very quickly and perform the task with consistent excellence and integrity.
- The Guilds aims are to enable people to be the best players they can possibly be, to contribute to the community as much as possible, and to that end we aim to grow both numerically and in quality. While still not losing the close knit family atmosphere we have.
- Longer term we are looking to build these values we have in GW1 and move them into GW2, so that when GW2 is launched it is like a family reunion and we can start off very much where we left off.
- The following is a selected list of achievements by the DVDF Guilds:
