Coffee Meeting 18th 12pmUTC (1pmUK)- HoT Prep

Post » 12 Oct 2015 19:27

This coming weekend, on either the 17th or 18th of October the council will be hosting an informal coffee meeting to get the guilds thoughts on what you want out of HoT, which guild hall you want MYST to go for and when you are free to do this mission. We want as many people as possible to be taking part as i think it's a one off mission and want as many people to experience it as possible. We thought it was best to get everyone opinions on these matters as it will affect you all.

The point of this post is to see what days and times are good for people this weekend, what points you want to bring up in the meeting, and if you are unable to make it, to write anything down that you want to be taken into account during the meeting so your voice is heard. Especially if you cannot make it please write something here or let one of the council know anything you want us to know, either privately or in here, the main thing i think will be when is best to do the mission and which guild hall you want.

Here are some links with relevant information in them incase you've missed anything anet has put out;

I can't make it (moving that weekend), but I'm all over the Gilded Hollow still.

I don't much mind capping time (evening or weekend) as long as I have internet by the time we get to it :p

Tom and I are off golfing Saturday. I have no idea what is currently happening after that, so not sure on evening availability there either. Sunday will be more likely on our end, afternoon most probably.

There's talks around here that we might get a family visit over the weekend. But not certain yet. I should be able to join you guys during the evening for certain though.

As for the guild halls itself, I can definitely see us sitting cosy in that Gilded Hollow.

Read a few of the posts; slightly curious to see where they'll be taking the scribe role and how everything will look & feel, especially the Tavern, Mine & Workshop.

Gilded Hollow it is. I should be able to make it on saturday or sunday, someone might have to remind me to log in though. Also sven suggested doing a L4D event this weekend as well and it would be great if the the meeting would be at a different time than that zombie carnage.

Is there a date and time for the meeting set? Getting a bit late to ensure people will be there

Was hoping for a few more reponses but as you say time is short, seems like more people will be free Sunday.

So meeting at 12pm UTC (1pm UK)

So i'm unable to make the meeting, but Ku and Cinna will be there to share all.

So the key things that will be brought up;
which guild hall we want (gilded or precipice)
when people are free to capture (thinking the week after launch?)
communication (follow up from last meeting)
and general chit chat

Make sure to bring your beverage and snack of choice with you and enjoy yourselves :)

Here comes the summary of our coffee meeting. We met sneakily in the guild building in LA which features a very cozy fireplace in the big library. Only seating options were a bit sparse which led to a certain amount of stacking on the only couch.

  • We will have a poll to decide on which hall to capture. That way people can wait until release when video tours of both halls will be available to make up their minds then
  • Date for the capture is set to Sunday 01.11. or 08.11. at 2pm UTC/UK 3pm CET if it turns out that the 1st is too early and either we or the game aren't ready yet
  • There will be a video / live stream of the capturing for those who can't attend either due to time issues or because they don't own HoT.
  • There will be an afk place for marm, though it isn't certain yet whether it will be a tower (as requested by marm) or a pit for scientific testing on afk players (as requested by many others)
  • Feedback about the last meeting was positive. People feel like communication and getting responses when asking things in guild chat have increased.
  • Missions will be moved back to Sunday starting next Sunday 25th and will henceforth be held at 1pm UTC / UK during winter time and at 12am UTC / 1pm UK during summer time so that it is always the same time locally for those who undergo time changes. (and hopefully no more confusions about stupid time changes ^^)
  • Guild influence should be kept to speed up building times in the guild hall. Only merits will become useless.


To round things off here a few impressions of our meeting including screenshots of the chat to read up on everything for those who missed it.

Thanks for all the hard work again, Cinna: all that screenshotting, cutting and pasting (extra cookies for you) :)

I was thinking, maybe a list of attendees could accompany the meeting minutes? The chat shows who spoke, but not necessarily who was there (either in the main company or on a different map). Also, the chat names are character names, rather than player account names, which can be a bit confusing if one (like me) is unfamiliar with the character/person (I found it very difficult while reading thru the screenshots of the previous meeting to work out who was speaking because of this, and in some cases I am still unsure. Also, I know people were present who didn't speak).
A list of attendees would also help with knowing who is able to attend and/or take an interest in the meetings.

I notice your summary points include a decision regarding the times of the Sunday missions.
During the meeting several people mentioned they would prefer a later time on the Sunday (see attached). The Guild poll was mentioned which does show a slight preference for 1pm (17 people) over 2pm (15 people) so I was wondering if the people who expressed a preference for the later time were represented in the poll, or if, like me, the poll predates them or they missed it? (Just a thought, as this might change the results significantly :o )
