  1. World of Warcraft (WoW): As the flagship game of our guild, we are committed to expanding our presence and influence within WoW. Our goals include recruiting new members who are dedicated to raiding, mythic dungeons, and PvP, as well as fostering a positive and inclusive community. We will continue to organize regular guild events, such as raid nights, battleground groups, and social gatherings, to promote camaraderie among our members.
  2. Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR): We recognize the potential of SWTOR as a popular MMORPG and aim to establish a strong branch within the game. We will actively recruit players who are passionate about the Star Wars universe and interested in all aspects of SWTOR gameplay, including operations, flashpoints, PvP, and roleplaying. We will also encourage cross-game participation among our members, allowing them to enjoy both WoW and SWTOR.
  3. The Elder Scrolls: Online (ESO): ESO is another game with a dedicated player base, and we are excited to establish a solid presence in Tamriel. We will focus on recruiting members who are interested in PvE content, such as trials and dungeons, as well as PvP campaigns. We will organize regular ESO events, including guild runs, group activities, and social gatherings, to foster a thriving ESO community within our guild.
  4. Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV): FFXIV has gained popularity in recent years, and we want to tap into this growing player base. We will recruit members who are passionate about the Final Fantasy franchise and interested in raiding, dungeons, and PvP in FFXIV. We will also provide resources and support to help our members excel in this game, including guides, mentoring, and in-game events.
  5. Beta Testing: As a forward-thinking guild, we are always looking for opportunities to participate in beta testing for upcoming MMORPGs and survival games. This allows us to stay ahead of the curve, explore new games, and provide valuable feedback to developers. We will actively seek out and participate in beta testing initiatives, and encourage our members to join us in exploring new gaming experiences.
  6. Guild Leadership: To effectively manage our guild’s growth and operations, we will continue to invest in strong guild leadership. Our officers will work closely with the guild master to oversee recruitment, event planning, member management, and community building. We will also establish clear communication channels, such as Discord and guild forums, to facilitate communication among our members and ensure that everyone is informed and engaged.
  7. Member Engagement and Retention: We recognize that our guild’s success depends on our members’ engagement and retention. We will continue to prioritize member satisfaction by providing a welcoming and inclusive environment, regular events and activities, and opportunities for members to contribute and advance within the guild. We will also actively seek feedback from our members and address any concerns or suggestions to ensure that our guild remains a thriving community where everyone feels valued and included.

In conclusion, our guild’s plan to become the largest in World of Warcraft and establish strong branches in other MMORPGs is centered on recruitment, engagement, and community building.

We will actively participate in beta testing initiatives to explore new gaming opportunities, while also fostering a positive and inclusive environment for our members to thrive in. Our guild leadership will work diligently to oversee operations, and we will prioritize member satisfaction and retention. With everyone’s dedication and effort, we are confident in successful RUIN campaigns in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight and upcoming MMORPGS.

Executive Summary

RUIN will continue to encourage our community members to branch out into the full spectrum of online multiplayer games through our Summer 2021-2023 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.

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!

Community Objectives

We remain excited for the future, with many improvements in the gaming genre on the technological front with the introduction of new consoles as well as next generation gaming engines and intellectual properties! Unreal 5 engine is of particular interest to us in 2023!

Have fun and win!
