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.
World of Warcraft and other MMORPGS.
MMOs, at their core, are games that provide for the communal experience 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!
