#80288 How to Verify your Home Server

Posted by Tangnu on 23 July 2015 - 03:03 AM



All members on this forum can now auto-verify their home server using the following method. If your account is on Fort Aspenwood, you will automatically gain access to the private WvW sub-forum and shoutbox. If you are a current FA Member, Guild Leader, or Guild Officer, you will not lose access unless your account is no longer on Fort Aspenwood.


1) Once you register a new account, you should see the following notification near the top of the forum. Click on the "Your GW2 Account" link to be taken to the GW2 account management website to create an API key.


2) Click on the "New Key" link to create an API key for use on this forum.



3) Type in a name for your new API key. You can use any name. Permissions should be set to "account" only. Do not share any other information.



4) Copy the newly created key and paste it into the form on this forum.



NEVER DELETE YOUR API KEY FROM THE API KEY MANAGEMENT WEBSITE!!!  You will end up being locked out of the shoutbox and private wvw sub-forum.


Never share your API keys with another person. You may only have one GW2 account associated to one FA forum account. Creating multiple API keys will not work.

#75744 LUN defeated by Wall 5-6-15

Posted by Rasern on 07 May 2015 - 01:18 AM


A "throw away" upgrade on SOS BL hills and a lone NPC manages to defeat LUN in arguably one of the most hilarious GW2 moments I've ever witnessed.


If suspense bores you, skip to 2:10. However, the magic is in the presentation. :)



Quotes of reflection:

"Savor this moment. Think about how you feel right now. If you could make this happen.... that moment happen for someone else in a video game; you have not wasted your time playing that game." -Zoel


"At that exact moment. All my time in Guild Wars 2 has been worth it." - Monkish


"I have waited almost 4 years for this moment." -Wolfe


"2 and half years lead up to that moment." -Redd

#76937 Shots Fired Fastcar. Shots Fired.

Posted by Rasern on 23 May 2015 - 02:20 AM



My personal response to one particular YB player who likes running his mouth, as brought to my attention by this thread: http://www.fort-aspe...-to-kill-80-fa/


You don't need superior numbers, siege, or "flag healing" to win a fight. You need a strong commander and a well rounded team of players to triumph. Shout out to Rawkzo; a commander who deserves a Gold Star here.


And to make sure Fastcar got the message, check the comments section of his video

#49201 About Fort Aspenwood

Posted by Tangnu on 01 June 2014 - 03:01 PM

Welcome to the Fort Aspenwood forums!


Fort Aspenwood’s reputation as a server that is fun to fight in WvWvW continues to this day. Sometimes that hurts us as players go to other servers to fight against us rather than fight with us. But it also means Fort Aspenwood always has a good source of bags to farm and the underdog, never give up mentality. All work and no play can make life dull though so we also organize community events such as the all-melee HAMR rally and mesmer moa morph hunts. Are you that sort of player?


Home to a variety of great guilds with different play styles (GvG, Havoc, PPT), experienced militia commanders and an established militia, Fort Aspenwood is a great community to be a part of. You can always be guaranteed a good fight and good company as a player on Fort Aspenwood.


The Fort Aspenwood community provides a Teamspeak 3 server for all members to use — up to 500 unique users per day — as well as one of the most active forums with over 67,000 posts and 3,909 members.  The WvWvW community works together via a Warzone, Teamspeak, and in-game chat with a rather hands-off approach.


To find out more information, please get in touch with our contacts in-game and on Teamspeak who can answer all your questions:


Feel free also to post in our Public WvWvW forum or send us private messages if you have other questions.



Getting started on Fort Aspenwood


  • Register for a forum account.
  • Verify your home server.
  • Connect to the FA community teamspeak server by asking in WvWvW or look here if you are verified for private access already.
  • Need a guild?  The recruitment forum has the information you seek.
  • Are you the leader of a WvWvW guild? Request access to our Warzone.

#86150 Esports - Pro leagues - Apex - Wow!

Posted by Dollie on 23 November 2015 - 07:37 PM



I thought I'd let you all know that our Tpvp team will be playing in the first week of Season 1 of the ESL GW2 Pro Leagues in a couple of hours and the match is expected to be quite close and full o' hype. We'd love to have the FA community there to support us. Apex is happy to be back on FA; we have a lot of positive memories of our time on this server. Apex seeded in as one of four pre-selected NA teams of 8 total vying for a share in $200,000 worth of winnings. 


You can watch the live broadcast here 


You can read some further info and predictions here


In Grouch's words: My favorite match for week one of NA Pro League is definitely Team PZ vs Apex Prime. There's so much history behind these two teams - each has been extremely dominant in NA at different times. PZ was the terror that awaited you in the final round of paid tournaments and Apex has had their time in the sun with a number of big tournament wins under their belt, including first place in the original Tournament of Legends. There's also another, slightly more dramatic story line at play here - that of two former team mates turned rivals - Java (PZ) vs Ostrich Eggs (Apex). I'm a sucker for drama, and Ostrich delivers. :)






Thanks FA, I hope to see some of you there! <3

Posted by Drigan on 15 December 2014 - 08:58 PM

I know I've upset you.
I can't even begin to tell you how sorry I am. But know this: I'll always, always love you and would never hurt you on purpose. You're the best thing that's ever come in to my life, and if I lost you, I'd be lost myself.have lost myself. Please, just tell me what I did, and how you feel. It's ok if you hate me...really. I just want you to know how much I love you, and how much I'll always love you. I'll do anything to get you to forgive me, and I'm sorry for shunning you. You're more special to me than you'll ever realise, and every moment we're apart I miss you like crazy..I did the pillow thing last night. You know what I mean. I even put my housecoat on it so I could wrap the arms around me and it was like we were really hugging. I just felt so happy pretending I was with you! Words can't even describe it! And then I realised this morning just how upset I've made you...I miss those conversations where I can't help but smile or even burst out laughing! I miss playing The Game, even when we hit awkward silences because we can't think of anything to say. I miss talking to you without someone butting in at the most inappropriate times! I miss the special, heartfelt conversations we have together. And it's my fault we haven't had any of those recently. I'm sorry for that as well. I just want you to realise how angry I am that I upset you. That's why I'm telling you here of all places where the whole world could see if they wanted to. I love you more than life itself, and I hope you can forgive me for all the dumb things I've done. 
I love you, and I'm so sorry but at this time I must reject your application.

#60042 A fallen brethren

Posted by Brother alaric on 14 November 2014 - 06:13 PM

This is something that will bring me out of hiding. I was told of this by chaba and Toph. It's rather sad news. Codelly was one of the very early members of SIC and he was many of the SICs roaming partners and dueling partners when we were off server. He was by far the best D-D ele Id ever played with which is saying a lot considering the people I was lucky enough to be surrounded by on a daily basis in game. No other player demanded 4-5 players just to try and take him down. He was that good. Just imagine how good he could have Been if he wasn't sick and die'ing. That would have been scary.

I still remember roaming with this guy on off hours and simply being amazed at what he could do. Many times I should have recorded those sessions because they were simply unbeleivable.  The best memory I have of him is when 5 of us did and impromtu gvg 5v20 and actually won 4 of 7 rounds. It really wasn't even hard. Not when codelly was soloing 4 guys and zongar was killing the other 4 guys trying to take codelly down. That totally non homosexual duo was a good one to have with you.

Game aside it is sad. He was just a kid. Most of the time life is not fair and you get a clear picture of that right here.

I end with one final thought:

Fuck derv.

#31232 Hello FA from [FATE]

Posted by Garnet Army on 04 August 2013 - 06:58 PM

[TDME] The Dungeon Masters Elite have left Anvil Rock for the greener pastures of Fort Aspenwood. We have reformed under the guild name [FATE] Fight Together Die Alone.


Just a little bit of background...

We are a fun and balanced group of players with a WvW focus.  While many of us enjoy our fractals and sPvP, MOST of us love kicking ass in WvW.  Anvil Rock died from various guild transfers in the last 6 weeks and forced us into choosing between continuing to fight alone or transferring elsewhere... so here we are.


We've currently transferred about 50 people to fort aspenwood and by the end of the week I expect our total to reach around 100.  We were a large 490+ member 100% rep guild.  While there is no doubt many casual players will be lost in transition, we have a good core group of players coming here.


We look forward to playing with you guys.

#84429 [Hel] Father Bliss: Ain't got time for pants

Posted by Fatherbliss on 08 October 2015 - 10:41 AM

So...this is interesting. Out of the many places I would see me placing an alt, FA is not one that I could ever visualize. However, I've been following a number of your members on the main forum and *theforumthatshallnotbenamed*. My perceptions were pretty damned skewed about FA based on the TC mentality of old. I have a huge amount of respect for the FA players I've encountered. Though I'm still not sure where you are hiding the bacon. I will find it. 


I've no real concept if people here know me or not, I tend to stay within the boundaries of TC up until now. But no more. I've followed a number of rather kick ass people over here. Here is the deal though: I maintain multiple accounts. I'm quite open about that. 


What I will do: Not give a f#$# when on the battlefield. I play unconventional builds and stomp the crap out of people. Friend or foe. The bloodthirst wells up inside and instead of winding up on a wanted poster, I take out my stress within video games. 


What I bring: A fierce beard. Awesome tattoos. A dedication to GW2 wherein I make fabulous content out of baked bread, cheese whiz and a need to feed on those who are slow moving. 


What I need: A strong breeze to carry away my cover songs of 70s hits to the masses. 


What I wish: Balanced tiers and some kick ass fights again. T1 sucked the life out of many people I know. Lame. Let's fire this party up. With panache and excellence. 


What I listen to: Everything. I love metal, industrial and Lady Gaga. Not in that order. 


I shall leave you with the thought that somewhere, I'm mostly naked. That is it really. Want to know more? I won't tell you. I will show you. 


These are my privates. This is my rifle.

#50258 DI vs BOON 15v15

Posted by Nuked on 16 June 2014 - 06:19 AM


4-2 DI win


The scores are a little wonky the score shows the result before the round begins.


This was with our 17 players that transferred over and since then we've added a few more transfers. Rust was evident was my first night driving in almost a week gg me. But here's to some more fun on FA and I think we lost a round in the video somewhere.


Comp notes

6 Guards

4 Warriors (1 Pick)

2 Necros

2 Eles

1 Mesmer


We had no thieves online so we went with the comp we had.


Last round we tested a but had parties set up weird which left our backline extremely exposed.

5 Guard

5 Warriors (1 Pick)

2 Necros

2 Eles
