Primary reason

It is once again my pleasure to recognize Gui Sol for his activities since his last recognition. He has racked up 58 competitions, 4 PvP matches, 30 PvE matches, 1 ACC battle finished, 3 fiction activities worth 3121 words, 9 Shadow Academy courses passed, 5 Shadow Degrees obtained and 1 news post. While doing those he acquired 1 Crescent with Diamond Star, 3 Crescents with Ruby Star, 7 Crescents with Amethyst Star, 2 Pendants of Blood, 128 Clusters of Fire, 12 Clusters of Ice, 49 Clusters of Earth, 18 Clusters of Fire, 3 Scrolls of Indoctrination, and 3 Legions of Scholar. More recently, he led from the front in our clan vs clan feud, participating in 7 out of 8 feud bins and securing 16th place in the feud. Additionally, both as a regular member and as a leader, he actively reached out to members to ensure they got the most out of the feud.

Outside of regular activity, he spent 6 months as Rollmaster, and 3 months as Magistrate to the Fist. For rollmaster, he continued to do his everyday tasks like Master-student program, helping his fellow Odanites, giving them competitions to participate in, to name a few but I wanted to put a spotlight on his big recruitment project and a few other highlights. First, he created a RM group chat, where he and other Rollmasters help each other and strategize ways to improve the DB experience. This has gotten favorable reviews from his fellow Rollmasters. Second, he has helped support our community events with particularly our newer gamers by hosting 3 TOR events worth a total of ~9 hours worth of time. While this may not seem like a whole lot to some, he was critical to getting one of our newest members to not only play TOR, have fun doing it, but also he hyper motivated a member to do even more things than they normally would have.

His main project has been recruitment. Since his last recognition he has completed 1 major recruitment drive and is in the middle of another. With all of his recruitment drives combined, so far he has spent a total of 39 hours talking with 209 people. This has led to 10 people joining the site, light and dark side alike, and 3 of them reaching Journeyman 1. Those who haven’t reached the site yet know more about the DB than they did before Gui reached out to them and might one day still join us. A particular example comes to mind, where he expertly showed off the club’s characters sheets using his many droids, much to the pleasure of a fellow Star Wars fan. And then of course there are those that haven’t yet reached a high enough rank to award a scroll of indoctrination but are here solely because of his efforts. Not everyone is meant for the DB but he continually goes out and finds those who might join our little corner of the Star Wars universe. This has had the effect of keeping Odan-Urr’s roster high and brought in some wonderful additions to our community. :)

For all your above efforts, I am pleased to recommend that Gui Sol be awarded a Sapphire Blade. Thank you for the time and effort you’ve put into Odan-Urr. It is not only greatly appreciated but has improved the overall health of the club as well. Congratulations!
