1. The Misfits has been a very active clan in the Founders' Beta, tell us how did it all start?
Shadow: Before guilds where introduced to the FB there were only 2-3 groups on the main message board talking about starting one up. These all seemed to be guilds that existed in the previous closed beta. Not really knowing anything about them I just decided I would found my own.2. Why did you pick the name Misfits?
Shadow: Aside from liking the band of the same name, I wanted a guild name that wasn't as "cute" as some of the others that were going to be founded or had been proposed. At the same time, I didn't want something that went too much against the grain of the HKO world and the Misfits seemed to fit finely between those two points.3. Why was the main objective for the founding of your guild?
Shadow: For people to have fun and help others. Pretty simple I guess but things tend to collapse under their own complexity if you let them get too far out of control.4. We noticed there was a change in guild leadership midway through the Founders' Beta, what was the reason for this change?
Shadow: I will not go into my personal reasons per se but I will say that at the time I started to think of departing, the guild as a whole (at least in regards to it's core members) had grown to the point where I had little fear that it would deviate from the principles I founded it on.5. The Misfits had good success in the many guild events we had during Founders' Beta. Were you surprised that you were up there amongst the top guilds considering your smaller numbers?
Sundaygirl: No, not totally surprised. The amount of work and long hours our guildies put into these events paid off. The communication between all of the guild members also helped with the F4F (Food For Friends) Event. With so many people in many different time zones one would think it would be hard to help with gathering materials and giving them to the correct members. Without being as close as we were as a guild, it is doubtful we would have had this much of a success.6. In the Food For Friends event, Misfits came from behind and grabbed a surprise third place. Tell us about your experience in this event.
Sundaygirl: Many of our guild members worked very hard on gathering items, farming and cooking for this event. We had a strategy to focus mainly on making Roasted Veggies, Lemon Pie, and Teas, as we all agreed these were some of the harder items to make so they should be worth the most points. We thought we would get 4th place easy, but we were all surprised when it turned out to be 3rd. And a very close 3rd place I might add! Although we did not turn in as many items as some of the other guilds, we knew the quality of our items were what was going to matter the most. Just like our guild, it’s not the numbers, it’s the quality of the guild members =)7. The Misfits was also one of the guild winners of the Build New York event. How were you able to gather all the resources needed and build Grand Central ahead of many of the larger guilds?
I have to give a shout out for the two guild reps who collected the foods for this event, HKera and abrieLLa^_^. They both did a wonderful job encouraging people, gathering food and making sure everything was turned in on time.
Sundaygirl: This one did surprise many of us. I think it was mostly how the guild event was handled, and honestly any guild could have won these! As long as you had 5 people working on one building with food to replenish your stamina, you could have been in the running for that particular building. We were very close for second place on the other two buildings also, so it seemed like the guilds who were participating in it were all running a very close game. It was a ton of fun!8. Of all the guild events, which one did your guild enjoy the most and why?
Sundaygirl: I would say the Build New York Event, because it gave us a chance to really pull together in a pinch and get those mystery items. It felt good to be part of such a wonderful team.9. What will the future hold for the Misfits?
Sundaygirl: The future looks bright! We are all awaiting HKO Open Beta, planning on some guild events of our own, working on just making play time fun for all of us. We are pretty laid back and just want to have a good time, it shows in our members attitudes.10. Any closing remarks?
Sundaygirl: The Misfits enjoyed Founders Beta very much, all the events were so much fun. We just want to thank all the GM's and Devs out there who put this game together. Wanting to play in a Hello Kitty world is what brought us all together, and we all couldn't thank you enough. And thanks to all the HKO players out there who participated in these events. It was nice to see the community pulling together, taking turns for the Monster Wranglers quest and just everyone being so civilized in many ways. It’s a great community and we are very pleased to be a part of it.
