The International Yakisoba Meetup 2014!


And we just ended the biggest, most happening event ever in the history of Yakisoba- The International Yakisoba Meetup!

With a count of close to 80 members, this is by far the largest gathering of Yakisoba members since we founded in 2007. It’s been 7 great years of being together as a guild, watching everyone grow from hardcore student gamers with a lot of free time to now busy working adults who game whenever our free time permits. It was also fantastic to finally meet some of our overseas members, who took the time, effort and money to make their way down to Singapore just for this.

A super huge shout out to Kon, who managed to get his new passport made the day before the event, book his flight and hotel and flew to Singapore the following day just to attend the event. Now this is true dedication.

This event was held at Fairy Point Chalet, and the place is huge. There was plenty of room for everyone to mingle and play around. We had awesome catered food as well as BBQ food, we had PS3 and Xbox360 to entertain everyone, and we also had the very memorable Polaroid Bingo and the hilarious Lucky Draw prize giveaway.


A lot of memories were made that night, and will certainly be remembered and talked about many years to come. We definitely will do something like this again in the near future, so for those who were unable to make it, do try to come to our next one!

I also want to specially thank the committee members for putting in so much effort together with me to help organize this large scale event (in no order of importance):

Angie + Hatsu for organizing the F&B side of things (good spread, despite the chocolate fondue not working), and also manning the login table.

Angie especially for coming up with the final design of the badge and the banner for members to sign on.

Kuch for arranging the booking of the chalet, it was a very good call to host it here since the place is so hugeeee.

Team Taxi: Al, Izaac and Teh for driving and fetching our overseas members from the airport to the chalet itself.

Logistic and Games team: Aurie + friends and Inadequate. I must say the Polaroid Bingo was a fantastic idea, and it got everyone taking a lot of photos! I will be scanning them all soon and will also mount them up as a collage.

Pro Van Driver Enzer for always helping me with the logistics of moving things and people around with the van.

Kelvin Bai for just overall helping everybody out and also arranging the photography with Speedknight.

Team BBQ: Mike Khoo and Leon for prepping the sodium overloading BBQ food and also being the vomit cleanup party. Many thanks to that!

Also not forgetting to thank Mike Khoo and Excelle for sponsoring all those fantastic and troll prizes for the Bingo and Lucky draw event!

Yakisoba Mumble Server is back up!

Alright, good news. Shader has worked his server magic and now the Mumble server is much faster and reliable now. You should see a ping drop from 180 to <10 now. Server has been relocated to Singapore.

Do check it and let us know if there are any problems. Members who are not from Singapore, do let us know your pings to the server. Especially our aussies members and their terrible optus connections.


Yakisoba @ Final Fantasy 14 : Reborn


We will be setting up Yakisoba in Final Fantasty XIV: A Realm Reborn. This shard will be headed by Shader (mostly) and Tsubaki and the guild’s direction is a casual. We’re in this game to enjoy the lore, art, music, design, choco-fucking-bos. There won’t be mass recruiting going on, the guild is more for existing Yakisoba members and their friends. We are pretty sure we’ll only be playing it for a couple of months only (FYI game is p2p).

Don’t expect much hardcore raiding or whatever, we have Rift (our hardcore shard) for that. There probably will be some raiding, but we’ll see about that.

If you are interested to join us, you can grab the game off Greenmangaming for $22 if you use the 25% discount coupon (expires 16 Aug): GMG25-OGRUH-7SM8H

Aug 16th: Beta phase 4 begins for phase 3 players.
Aug 17th: Beta phase 4 (open beta) begins for all players.

Aug 27th: LAUNCH

We will be playing on Tonberry server.

Yakisoba @ Neverwinter

Neverwinter is a new f2p mmo with a soft launch on the 30th of April. The game itself is very action based, a cross between Guild Wars 2 and Diablo 3.

Currently a few of us are testing it, and we quite like the way they done with the cash shop and gem system. For a F2P game there is no artificial boundary that keep you from accessing the shop with playermade gems.

Few of the features are

  • Comprehensive LFG system for all.
  • First MMO the incorporates web-based interaction with game, including guilds chat/event, auction house, professions, foundry.
  • 3rd Person Shooter style gameplay.
  • Telegraphing system found in Tera and Wildstar.
  • Based on Dungeon and Dragon 4rd Edition ruleset, expect all the lore and mechanics to be awesome.
  • And most importantly – Player made content such as dungeon and quest AKA steamworkshop for MMO.
  • Yes there are raids.

Please refer to our recruitment post on the right side for more info. You can also apply to join Yakisoba community by applying on our facebook

Remember we are on the “DRAGON” server.


Changelog to Yakisoba 2013


By golly, it’s been ages since we updated the guild blog! This would be the first post in the year 2013 and we have indeed survived the proclaimed “End of the World”. Though I am 24 days too late, I still would like to wish everyone: Happy New Year from Yakisoba! Hahah.

So anyway, 2 big announcements to all members. We have promoted 2 members to take up officership in Yakisoba and here are the 2 announcements posted on our Facebook page:

On Roufas, our new WvW Officer:

I am pleased the announce that Steven Tan (Roufas) has been promoted to be an Officer of Yakisoba. Roufas has been a WvW Captain for awhile, and has answered the call for a need for new officers.

With his new appointment, he is now a WvW Officer, together with Wilson Chan (Shader) and also has the power to accept and recruit new members.

Please welcome him!

and Keitaru, our new PR/HR/Welfare Officer:

Additionally, I am pleased to announce that Calvin Yio (Keitaru) has been promoted to as Officer as well. He will be incharge of PR/HR/Recruitment, together with Michael Chin (Enzer).

Keitaru is very active in Guild Wars 2, and part of the group of very active players in the guild. He has shown great pro-activeness in assisting in moving the guild over to Jade Quarry, and does not mind stepping up to take up officership in Yakisoba.

As a guild leader, it pains me that I no longer have the luxury to play as long as everyone. But I recognize the importance of having active officers in the guild to serve as my eyes and ears, and to look over issues that may arise within our members. It is important to constantly maintain good relationships with all members part of the Yakisoba family. Keitaru is part of the PR/HR team, and if there are any issues, please do raise it to him and he will inform me.

Please welcome him!

Yakisoba is surprisingly staying strong, with a core group of players actively raiding dungeons, farming for their legendaries, as well as WvW. Also most recently, we have moved our homeserver to Jade Quarry. Our members are still in the process of moving over and we are very happy to be warmly welcomed by the community there, whom we have fought and come to respect in WvW. It is a strange feeling to now take arms along side old an nemesis, but Jade Quarry has always been a brother we all want to kill, but still eventually love. It is an exciting direction to take for the guild in terms of the development of WvW, and keeping it fresh. Unfortunately, this decision has also come with a price. A price of leaving our friends NYS, SYN and SSQ, whom have chosen to leave Stormbluff Isle for Sanctum of Rall instead.

Merody, the leader of NYS left us a farewell message:

When I heard you guys will not come with us to a new server, my tears burn my eyes (real one). Because I know that free transfer is about to close and we cannot fight together anymore. I try to come out from the sadness. Although we are not partners anymore, but NYS always being your friends. Guild Wars 2 is only starting point of our friendship. We want to make a deal with you – Yakisoba. When we get bored in Guild Wars 2, Not Yet Solved will goto play ArcheAge Online. I hope we can play together in the same server, in the future. If you don’t have interest to play. No worries! We will wait for 1 decade,2 decade and finally, lets meet at the endless point of human being’s dream game – Sword Art Online.

If you feel unhappy in the new server, call merody. If you want to come and play with us, call merody and I will pay for you to come.

Have fun and best wishes!

Merody and NYS

I have yet to reciprocate his message and will now take the opportunity to do so in this post:

Dear Merody,

While it pains me to make this decision, it was a necessary choice for our guild moving forward when the paid server transfer kick in. We will not forget the wonderful memories we have forged together with you and your guild, and most certainly we will keep in touch with you. ArcheAge is an interesting MMO choice, but whether or not we will move there when our interest in Guild Wars 2 wanes, only time will tell. But still, may we continue to play different games together and keep the friendship close!

For now, we look forward to seeing you bring SOR to T1, and we look forward to having exciting battles with you and NYS.

Best wishes,

Tsuu and Yakisoba

Our new home, Stormbluff Isle

Last week we quietly moved to SBI, together with a few guilds we have been playing closely with (SYN, NYS), in search for a new homeserver after we realized that there was nothing left for us in HoD. HoD was a dying server, the NA coverage was non-existence and morale was at an all time low. But having moved to SBI, we can say that it was truly one of the best choice we made.

The last WvW matchup JQ vs SBI vs IOJ was perhaps one of the most fun and intense WvW match we ever had so far. SBI was lagging so far back in points against JQ, yet the server never gave up and continued fighting. We took over and went full force during our primetime and together with the other guilds, dominated our borderland. To see SBI actually overtaking JQ in points is one of the most satisfying thing ever, and we are proud to part of the SBI guilds that made it all happened.

The community here at SBI is also very friendly and nice, and we hope to stay here for the long haul. Our new current match up seems like a tough one, the new tier 1 entry Blackgate is a very strong contender. Some of our old friends from TA are on it and are a force to be reckoned. But we look forward to pulling off another comeback with SBI.

Also, Yakisoba is still looking to recruit new members to join our ranks. If you are WvW-centric, and want to play in an organized guild and play during our prime time (around 7pm-12am GMT +8), do join us! We have an active guild that does a lot of PvE, WvW and PvP together. PM Tsuu, Shader or Enzer for details on joining us.

Titan Alliance ceases operations & Yakisoba’s stance

Titan Alliance shall be ceasing operations as of today. We’ve done what we set out to do, and now it is time.

There are many reasons for this. These range from guilds retiring from the game, guilds moving on to a new server and new challenges, ANet not addressing server transfers and queues and, most importantly, Titan members wanting to help make the game more competitive for the community.

The goal of Titan Alliance was to be the most dominant alliance in Guildwars 2, and that goal has been met. The guilds of Titan all worked together and earned an undefeated 30-0 record, while fighting at the top tier virtually the entire time. Titan was a perfect 7-0 vs the servers of Ascension Alliance and 7-0 vs Stormbluff Isle.

These are the incredible guilds that made it happen: ARMA, DIE, CND, DROW, DTD, ELITE, GIN, LUC, PRX, RMA, SOA, SYN, TRG, TRF, ULTD, YAKI. Champions all and brothers in arms.

Those guilds from Titan that have not retired nor transferred are in the process of deciding their next move in order to seek new challenges. But we feel that, for the good of the game, it is time to move on.

All the members of TA want to thank the community for many epic battles. Hail to you all!

The news of TA disbanding has been going around and I am here today to put an official word for Yakisoba’s stance on this matter. We are glad and proud of being part of an alliance that has truly shown dedication and a sheer level of coordination Guild Wars 2 has ever seen. To constantly have 24 hours around the clock coordination is amazing. We are disheartened that our NA brethren, Condemn has decided to throw the towel in for Guild Wars 2. They have burnt out on this game and will be moving on to another game.  The TA name will go along with them, but the spirit of the alliance will remain here at Henge of Denvari. Some guilds have expressed that they will be moving out of HoD, but Yakisoba will be here to stay.

We are still committed to the defense of HoD, and will still be participating in WvW during our prime time of 8pm -12am (GMT +8). We welcome any players and guilds of HoD to join us and fight along us. Our Commander Shader will be the main man to coordinate with the guilds and pugs alike. However, we will be scaling back our WvW efforts to 4-5 days per week instead of daily to prevent members from being burnt out from WvW. Our operational days will be decided before hand by the officers and captains of Yakisoba.

This weekend, we will go all out and will be fighting actively in the borderlands. For HoD!
