We have recruited a lot of new members recently. I wanted to repost our vision so that you may know what we are about, and what is expected.
Purpose At Ascensión we use a laidback competitiveness to build loyalty and friendships through raids, Galactic Starfighter, and PvP so that we may be a well-rounded guild in which our members have fun doing multiple things.
Core Values Camaraderie We foster a social environment to accompany what can be a solitary MMORPG experience. Being able to chat with people on TeamSpeak is part of the Ascensión experience. Members of the guild greatly enjoy being able to hop on to talk about both anything and nothing in particular.
Desire We are a community of like minded players who enjoy playing the game well (i.e. thinking tactically, using sensible strategies) but who also don't take the game too seriously because we "play the game we enjoy, not the game Noxxic's powergamer statisticians would prescribe."
Openness We learn from and teach each other. Whether it's the best way to gather Biochem mats or knitting turadiam stockings on our Synthweaver or sharing best practices in UI management, we are warm and helpful toward each other.
Diverse Experiences We revel in opportunities to experience content enabled by good leadership, planning, and people stepping up. Through officers starting up new raid groups to meet the growing demand, organizing datacron hunts or conquest objective raids, or just calling out for help to run the initial Oricon questline (not to mention the whole raft of PvP related activities available), we enjoy and experience a broader game world thanks to the company (and occasional instigation) of fellow guildies. The same old same old routine gets boring, but the opportunities to do things together—even if they are the same old same old—helps to keep things refreshed.
Please be respectful. Berating others, profanities or otherwise, is not tolerated. This includes people outside the guild. We're all here to have fun.
We do quite a bit of operations. TeamSpeak is a must for these even if you are muted and just listening. Asking someone to type out directions is asking a lot. "I already know the fights" isn't the teamwork we're striving for.
