That being said, the guild leaders back up and support whichever area needs help/manpower the most. They also coordinate each activity to the other so it won't create problems and issues. Every member can join as many activities as they want in the guild and do them with guildies.
Does EVA use discord?
Voice chats for better coordination, like rare activities such as new metas from patch and updates (people know HoT metas by heart already), and chit-chats.
Discord chat channels are used for guild activity discussion, addressing concerns, announcements, and brain-storming sessions. Not all the guild members are online at the same time, and we do not want to ignore the topic-inputs of those who are not in-game at the time of discussion. When they get online, they will be able to give their ideas and opinions which will be considered in minor or major guild decisions. Everyone counts.
Additionally, everyone is welcome to EVA discord. If you want to be pinged about open world activities like metas, you can self-assign a role to EVA Metabots, guildie or non-guildie <3 (the instruction is pinned in the general chit_chat channel).
I'm new in discord and I cannot see all the guild channels
There are guild-exclusive channels in discord which can only be viewed once a role is attached. You can add your in-game account name to your discord nick (Name.1234) or attach your in-game account name with your preferred discord nick in () so we can verify it in game. Let any leaders/captains/discord police know.
Questions about guild recruitment
How can I join EVA?
Are there any rules in joining EVA?
1. Please make sure to read Message of the Day when you log in everyday.
2. Be respectful to each other in the guild. No drama.
Light profanity is allowed in the guild. If to some extends you are feeling uncomfortable with someone using excessive amount of profanities, please report to any leader with a screenshot.
Same thing applies with insults: If you are insulted by someone or you see anyone else being insulted by others, please report to any leaders with a screenshot.
Please help us keep the guild as a friendly, respectful, and peaceful environment as possible.
3. Do not advertise other guilds in the guild chat or during guild activities unless the guild you are advertising is part of our guild alliance.
4. Invite respectful players who are interested in joining EVA. Be sure to read the guild blacklist before inviting.
5. Guild representation is not required for each member.
6. Any officer/member who wants to make a new rule needs to let the leader/managers know first and have a discussion with the entire guild to see whether the idea makes sense for everyone or needs further study. The rules will be approved by the leaders/managers once notified.
7. Being inactive for 1 month is a kick. If you plan to take a long vacation, please let the officers know, your rank will be changed to "Vacation". It will be restored when you get back to the game. You are always welcome to come back if you forget to inform us and get kicked after taking a long break.
8. BULLYING/POWER-ABUSE/MISCONDUCT will not be tolerated. EVA has been formed initially to have a friendly environment and will be kept that way.
The guild sees skills/interests/talents from both new and old people. Promotions will not be hard to achieve, provided that the privileges given will be used accordingly - issues will be dealt impartially with proper investigations.
Provoking drama in chats will not be tolerated, sensitive issues should be settled discretely.
Falsification of reports to harm another member will not be tolerated as well hostility within members, especially those in higher ranks towards lower members.

EVA open-world meta events
General questions about EVA and meta
What is EVA's meta train?
EVA meta train is a non-stop farming of metas. Mon-Fri UTC: 4-hr meta in the Heart of Thorns map. It is composed of these map metas in order: TD-AB-DS-AB-VB Tangle Depths -> Auric Basin -> Dragon Stand -> Auric Basin -> Verdant Brink T4 night meta Saturday: rest day <3 Sunday: PoF metas (the train covers Serpent's Ire, Maw of Torment, Forged Metas, and PoF Legendary Bounties)
What time does the meta train start?
12pm UTC prep time.Tangle Depths map fills fast even though the meta starts at 1230pm UTC. Guildies are prioritized to be brought in the map first before the LFG listings.
Do you do meta train everyday?
Not really: Monday to Friday HoT meta train, Saturday is rest day, Sunday is for PoF metas. We occasionally cancel the train on certain situations:
- meta commanders are tired and burned out (meta leaders come first c: )
- new patch (usually 3 days, in game/discord/bulletin announcements are done a day prior)
Why do you do Auric Basin twice?
Verdant Brink meta needs time to be prepared to be able to do an organized meta. It happens at the same time as Dragon Stand meta and there will be no time for the EVA commanders to prepare squad and do markings, as well as instruct the people about the meta (since VB is a meta where the mechanics are not very well understood by many, compared to other HoT map metas). Also, more lewts 😉
I really do not understand what's happening during the meta.
Aside from the instructions from our meta commanders, you can also refer to our guides page.
Do you train EVA commanders and those who want to be a commander?
Yes. We train our commanders very well and those who wanna be trained. Farming HoT meta maps daily burns most people out easily, especially if they take too much time. It gets boring. Not to mention, the fails. Any guildie who would wanna learn how to tag should speak up during the meta train and we will gladly teach you: assign you to a veteran EVA comm to learn.
General Questions about EVA and raids
Does EVA do raid trainings?
Yes. We have a progression/training raid runs every now and then. However, our raid trainer has an erratic schedule so random raid runs are just announced in discord, on call. It will be announced few days/hours in discord raid channel and available squad/class slots in guild chat as last minute call.

EVA Guild Missions
General questions about EVA guild missions
Do you do weekly guild missions?
We have a set date weekly for guild missions at the calendar page. However, anyone in the guild can activate missions anytime of the day. They can form a group of their own to do these missions. EVA Group and EVA Laurel are already maxed guild, people can fail the mission after getting the commendations. EVA Clover is still levelling that is why we need to finish all the missions for the favors. Favors are used in guild hall upgrades and levelling.
