NEW WORLD CAMPAIGN CONCLUSSION
A decisive Marauder Victory would not have been possible without the concerted and well coordinated efforts of countless members of the Marauder faction who contributed their time and talents despite an extremely challenging resistance from the Covenant and Syndicate factions.
The intent of this review is to provide a quick briefing on the RUIN communities experiences in New World and to shed some light on why the vast majority of the community has returned to World of Warcraft, SWTOR, FFXIV and The Elder Scrolls Online.
RUIN GUILD MEETING UPDATE
RUIN will continue to encourage our community members to branch out into the full spectrum of online multiplayer games through our Summer 2021-2022 Campaign.
Serving a mission that is greater than gear score.
Large parts of the RUIN community are deliberately moving away from Activision Blizzard games towards more healthy environments to build communities. Star Wars: The Old Republic, Final Fantasy XIV and other games align more closely to our values. Strong interest in new and upcoming games.
We need fun, engaging content that encourages players to grow together as teams and individuals.
Arthas in 9.2 & The Most Important Question of the Patch ANSWERED! Good News as the PTR Launches
World of Warcraft Shadowlands Patch 9.2 PTR is ready to roll and we should see it this week! Before we get hands on though, Tali has some very good news regarding the main progression system of the patch, the Cipher of the First Ones (oh and Arthas too if that’s your sort of thing)
The Starting Zone Patch 9.2 Interview with Morgan Day:
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!
Join RUIN in Ashes of Creation for the Alpha One test. Ashes of Creation is built in the Unreal 4 engine and promises large scale massive multiplayer siege warfare!
Experience an MMORPG where everything is permanently impacted
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.
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.
RUIN’s Discord server has reached over 11,000 members!
We continue to remain a supportive meritocracy, where our success is a direct result of finding new gaming leaders and team-builders within our community, then empower them through providing resources, training, support, and a friendly community to become the best possible leaders. We utilize the features of Discord to make all of this possible including tech support, suggestion channel, gaming news, and guides for our favorite games.

Weekly GAMING NEWS
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
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
RUIN traditionally hosts a variety of guild events in and out of game. Including Blizzcon, movie premiers, summer vacation retreats and other gaming or entertainment industry related conventions and events!
The Roadmap featured here, is based on an extensive collaborative effort to review games all across the MMO Genre to build a concise vision of what we hope to achieve. We constantly gather suggestions and feedback directly from our communities and players in order to effect change and positive reforms within RUIN.
Plans are being developed to also host viewing parties of various popular series that include The Mandalorian, and some from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
