Welcome to the RUIN gaming Community! Established in 2004.

Twitch, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Patreon


The RUIN community meets every Tuesday at 6PM Pacific Standard Time on Discord to recognize outstanding members for promotion, discuss gaming news, events and scheduling for the upcoming week!


The community came together during the 2004 launch of World of Warcraft. The guild assumed the name RUIN during the Warhammer Online campaign which culminated in the World First Inevitable City conquest.

For eons the Jailer was bound within The Maw. Now, his endless armies gather as he prepares to enact the final stage of his grand design. In the face of annihilation, Bolvar marshals his last remaining allies to charge into the heart of Torghast and confront the Jailer where he is most powerful.

2021 offers a staggering array of compelling gaming content for our members to explore and enjoy!

New releases and expansions to existing titles! RUIN will continue to focus on building strong Guild Communities in all major MMORGS in which there is a strong and consistent interest.

RUIN specializes in large scale player versus player environments which have defined the MMORPG genre. Previous campaigns include Age of Conan, Aion, Warhammer Online, and Guild Wars 2 as well as active communities in The Elder Scrolls Online and Star Wars: The Old Republic. You can see our current large scale PvP campaigns at RuinTV on Twitch!

We will continue to build a highly competent and well trained officer corps with extensive player verses player large scale objective based campaign experience in addition to a full spectrum of Community management and social media moderation training to ensure RUIN will continue to execute our mission to provide a vibrant and well motivated community with a clear understanding of our Community mission.

RUIN will continue to execute a strong community focused player versus player campaign  in World of Warcraft and other MMORPGS. 

MMOs, at their core, are games that provide for the communal experien ce of the Great Myth which is a fundamental human pursuit throughout nearly every culture and time in history. Intellectual properties such as, Star Wars, World of Warcraft, Elder Scrolls, etc. are modern adaptations and additions to the great human myth telling tradition. Expansive universes in which the heroic journey of many trials can be more directly experienced.

We encourage members to immerse themselves in the rich lore and ever expanding stories that are the foundation of every game we play. Invest time and pride into your characters! Strive to  fully enjoy the online gaming experience within our community!

Have fun and win!

Our mission is to provide an oasis for gamers and a much needed escape from the real world intended to uplift morale and provide a hopeful place to socialize, make new friends while maintaining connections with all of those we have met along the way over the last sixteen years.

This last year has been extremely difficult, presenting many unforeseen challenges and significant losses, the impact on the greater gaming community has been significant.


Below, you’ll find a list of charities who are active on Twitch and working to help those affected by COVID-19. We’ve also shared some best practices for charity streams to help you get started.

Our response during the pandemic is critical. The disease itself will not define us but our response to it will. As individuals and as a community, this is a time to come together and help out those in need.

We also thank everyone for their resilience, charity, and outstanding contribution during this difficult period. We appreciate the outstanding service our members have provided to each other and the greater gaming community. We will continue to grow and improve as a community to meet and overcome all challenges in and out of game. 

There is no doubt that 2021 will continue to be a difficult period.  Our excitement over upcoming World of Warcraft and other game releases, expanding our presence, and engaging in a continual process of improvement helps us to weather the difficulties we face outside of the gaming community. RUIN hopes to continue to provide a place where people can relax and enjoy the greater gaming community.

No second breakfast and especially no elevenses for MMO and Lord of the Rings fans. Amazon has canceled its free-to-play Lord of the Rings MMO, according to a report from Bloomberg. Amazon first revealed the project in 2019, and the game was being co-developed by Amazon, Athlon Games, and Leyou. This news comes only a few weeks after Amazon announced a new game from the creators of Rainbow Six Siege. – Polygon


World of Warcraft Shadowlands patch 9.1: Chains of Domination was supposed to get a release date last week. We all KNEW it would happen. It didn’t. So we are left waiting for Chains of Domination and all the new gameplay it brings; new zone Korthia, new raid Sanctum of Domination and the Sylvanas boss fight, new Mythic Mega-dungeon Tazavesh, new cinematics and Legendaries and story and more. In the mean time, though, there are reports that for the first time Final Fantasy 14 has eclipsed WoW in terms of player numbers. How true are these reports? Why has it happened? Amd what can Shadowlands do to become the top MMORPG again? Join us for the Weekly Reset, Taliesin and Evitel’s Wondrous Wisdomshow. Source: T&E


A Genuine Defence of Shadowlands

World of Warcraft Shadowlands has been coming in for some flack. Is it the worst expansion ever? A massive disappointment? Or is it… pretty good? Taliesin and Evitel make the case for the defence.

Why There Won’t Be A Patch 9.3… Mythic+ Fury & TBC Classic Launches! The Weekly Reset with T&E

World of Warcraft Shadowlands Patch 9.1 Chains of Domination looks as though, after the long long wait, it might be ready to be announced… especially now The Burning Crusade Classic is launched and rolling. As we shall see, Korthia, Tazavesh the mythic mega-dungeon and the raid all look just about finished, there’s just numbers left… class tuning, new legendaries, and the new Mythic+ Rating system. But with 9.1 looking more and more like what we might have expected from 9.2, it’s beginning to look a lot like Shadowlands won’t see a 9.3 patch at all. All this plus the Great Push, the Sylvanas boss fight in Sanctum of Domination and more in The Weekly reset with Taliesin and Evitel

Isle of Siptah is a massive expansion to the open world survival game Conan Exiles, featuring a vast new island to explore, huge and vile new creatures to slay, new building sets and a whole new gameplay cycle.

Shipwrecked and alone, you arrive at the mystical Isle of Siptah. With nothing but the scraps on your back, you craft the tools you need to survive. At first a simple camp and a crude stone axe, with time a fortress and brutal greatswords made from hardened steel or obsidian.

At the center of the island a dark tower looms above the landscape. The violent storm that swirls around it seems to gather strength and unspeakable horrors stalk within. But your most dangerous foe may be the other castaways on the island. Resources are scarce, and the fight for survival will be brutal.


It is time to mount your steeds and ride across the plains of the Exiled Lands. One of the most sought-after features since Early Access launch is a reality: Mounts are now available in Conan Exiles!

The fight for survival is difficult and relentless. With the all new Blood and Sand pack you can crush your enemies wearing new armors and wield fearsome weapons while fighting in new vaulted tunnels and arenas.
