The War Party guild has decided to take a radical step in trying to help not just the guild but the UR community as a whole.
It is well documented the number of new players coming into the game has dropped dramatically in recent times. Not only that but many new players who do join are leaving after a few days.
One contribution to this is guilds making unrealistic requirements for players of a lower level to join. So these new players get very little choice in guilds and as a result get very little encouragement to carry on. Made even worse if they apply to a guild who knocks them back without so much as a word spoken between the to. This doesn't apply to all guilds but the majority of guilds who claim a name for themselves request such things.
So as a guild we have made the decision to go the other way. We will now be actively recruiting new players to the game in the hope we can encourage them to stick with it and use it as a regular escape from the stresses of day to day life. Joining in with our active forums, Chat and all the events etc that come with being a war party member.

We still plan on keeping the war party under the 100 member mark. We firmly believe in keeping our close knit family feel we have always worked hard to maintain. So we won't be recruiting every single new player we see. We will still be cherry picking those who show the most promise. This will be done by myself and admins actively speaking to new applicants and finding out if they are the sort of player we are looking for. Which leads me on to the final part of this recruitment post.
As i have said we are scrapping level requirements. So players of any level may join.
All players wishing to join must speak and understand English.
All applicants will be sent a PM by myself or an admin who will wish to find out NO PERSONAL INFORMATION at all but merely to see if you will be the sort of player willing to be an active part of our community. Don't be shy. You will benefit greatly from our forums and it will enhance your experience of the game 10 fold.
So there we have it. The war party is going back to how it started over 4 years ago. Passing on knowledge to new players in the hope they become the next in a long line of UR greats. This i hope will also go a long way to help boosting the English speaking community.
Bauldy, how many people will take you seriously with your avatar the way it is?
You made it. Got a problem? Make me another one
Thank you to Gareth and Tristan for their recent visits. Hope to see you again some time soon.
I should probably mention the war party is always open to visits. Why wouldn't we be after all?
I believe Gareth will be returning.
Level 28 today, join for a fatty celebration
A fatty celebration?
I better start baking cupcakes.
Why can't you wait a minute and not spoil the fun till I reach your thread, Bauldy?
I know I am responsible for recruiting for all English guilds, but come on, I can only type 120 words a minute, and see how much shit i heaped up in the other guilds' threads?
Okay, let's clear this up, first.
Hoatzin, of course i know that 'fatty celebration' was a poke at me.
It ain't my fault that i am a big man with size 44 moobs and a DDD cup size.
You need not make fun of that everyday.
Second: What is Gareth doing in WP when he is supposed to be out there playing for Real?
Or he got scared after two poor Welsh sissies tried to kiss him?
Look at the third pic, and the love in the white T-shirted man's eyes, and his body language.
