We look forward to dominating our server on warhammer like we dominated merlin server in DAOC.
Here is a thread from actual Merlin players discussing the most feared guilds in DAoC history and Myth is shamelessly snubbed in the conversation. BTW BWC was named over and over <3 to the VN community.
Myth was the leader of the Midgard realm on the merlin server and who people went to when there were problems anywhere in the realm. Drutt, our founding guildmaster had a role that was basically the Father or Elder of the realm. He set down principles and guidelines and created the strongest alliance in the history of the game. Following the success of Myth as a guild and an Alliance, many other alliances came to adopt at least some of the basic policies of Myth. There are few old-school Daoc players that do not know the Myth name.
Again I feel it is my duty to strip the illusion from this untruth it conceals. After a 2 year head start on RP's BWC took the top spot on Mid Merlin somewhere around Nov. 2k3. On an alliance scale they were able to crack the top 10 which is fairly lofty at least once shown in this Shock and Awe thread.
Myth has always led by setting an example for others to follow. We have always been able to compete with these elitist guilds and accomplish the same kinds of things they do by having strong bonds within the community.
Ahh for this I need only bring up the infamous words of their GM a man I simply refer to as The Pillar or Morality. Heres a little remix of the Drutt MP3 drunking ramblings - http://www.barbos.net/stuff/Druttremix.mp3
Obviously most people wont know wtf Myth is but to the Merlin community they are infamous. Of course their rare popularity has less to do with in game performance and more to do with the words of their GM Drutt after a 1 pack of Zima then they would like people to believe. BTW, I choose to believe our thank you cards were all lost in the mail and to Myth, as a representative of BWC, let me to be the first to say it was all our pleasure fellas. To those that do not know Myth here is a little background.

Ok, 2 years condensed. (I'm listening to Drutts full 45 min rant so I've got time to type)
Andred happened, mass exodus, most of the powerRVR'rs leave and Mid Merlin was weak. Beyond weak. We were outnumbered 2:1 most nights by both realms. Hibernia which had been getting it's ass kicked for so long by Combine/PRX/Conquest stays on the server and becomes dominant. Albs were always like cockroaches anyway.
A little known guy named Drutt forms Myth. The homeland defense RVR oriented people join that guild. We are consistently outnumbered huge, but we try. Drutt becomes the leader of the zerg. To his credit, he was pretty good at gathering a zerg, and rallying the casual players. Of course this meant the Drutt lead zerg was usually undisciplined and stupid, but it had it's purpose. Myth made it's name in homeland defense. Later in the fall, when Mids started trickling back in we got enough numbers to hit the other realms. Drutt lead many relic raids, and while not a very good tactician, he was persistent. By winter of that year, Mid was back on top and Drutt had lead most of the relic raids.
At one point on VN Drutt was proclaimed "King of Midgard" by hibs, and when laughingly accepted the title, it would come back to haunt him forever.
November/December of that year, BWC returns from Andred with COE friends. Gundorf was fun to RVR with, and actually knows how to do less with more rather than just megazerg so most of the hardcore RVR people gradually leave Myth and join BWC. This infuriates Drutt as he likes to give orders and if you don't jump when he says, then you are a "Piece of Shit BAD PERSON". Furthermore, Gundorf is a big time smartass and the lack of respect turns Drutts hate into an obsession. Meanwhile, more Myth officers bail on him to go to BWC. Myth's RVR status declines. Drutt becomes paranoid thinking it was all a BWC plot to make his life hell. Seriously, the guy is psychotic.
And here we are today. The man who so prided himself on helping to rebuild mid merlin is now the biggest drama queen.
But mids are still on top, and we still have some fun. I hope Frontiers injects some freshness into daoc though, I'm tired of same old. Unfortunately, every new MMORPG seems to be going after EQ rather than DAOC RVR. :/
