GUILD NEWS: JULY 2014

Miriel a posted Jun 29, 14
WOW!

That's all I can think to write, to start the off this month's guild newsletter, is just "WOW!"
It's July already. When I look at what we have accomplished as a guild with our members for the month of June, and see that we are going into July, it makes me look at everything we have accomplished as a guild since July of last year.

It has been a lot!

July of last year, our membership had been locked. Game mechanics only allow for 500 characters / toons / members within a guild. We could not recruit new players as the roster was full. The Guildmaster at the time had not been seen in over 60+ days, and the officers (who were still active) did not have guild permissions to make changes.

There were only nine of us active, as players within the guild.

We had a hard choice to make. We could stay with "The Sith Legacy," or we could look for a new guild. The nine of us had forged a great friendship. We got along great! We had the same interests, the same play-styles and we enjoyed playing the game together.

Guild shopping is hard.

We didn't want to break up the bond we had forged.
We didn't want to explore new guilds and go through the whole process of seeing if we would get along with different players. We wanted to be with like-minded players. We wanted to be with a social and active guild. We did not want to "forced" for accomplishments in game, or have our game play dictated to us by progressive guild. We wanted a casual and more relaxed guild.

The nine of us realized, we already had what we wanted in a guild between us. If that's what we were looking for in a guild, than surely there must be others that wanted the same. Everything we wanted we had. So we decided we would create a road map, game plan, mission statement (what ever you want to call it) and we began working towards it. I became the guild leader. We became officers. We began rebuilding what we had to include others.

And here we are today!

In August of last year, we held our very first guild meeting with new members on the Command Deck of the White Nova. As we expanded, we just held our last two meetings on the Ziost Shadow. And come this August (Bioware Dependant) we will be able to have our guild meetings on our very own Guild Fleet Ship!

Our guild bank has 3 vaults. We have close to 15 million credits saved.
We have completed all 8/16 player story mode operations, and 8/16 player hard mode operations.

We have an active roster of 160 to 180 players/
We can have up to 20 to 25 players during prime time hours.
Our active military players can leave for three months and come back to game, and we are here for them to welcome them home!

Players now come to us, asking to join us - as they were referred our name as an active guild on the server!

This was all accomplished by you, our friends and family, who have joined and made this guild what it is! So Kudo's to all of you!

I've posted the before in prior news entries, and it stands true even now. It's the players who make a guild, and we have some of the best players I have ever had the chance to know and game with!

As with any large and active guild we have also had our share of bad times. But our members always rally together and we learn. We have had more good times than bad. We may have players who do not agree with our decisions as officers, but we value their opinions.

As the saying goes, "We can please some of the people all the time, but we can not please everyone all the time." Those who have different expectations or don't feel their needs are being addressed fast enough leave. Often to come back and find what they also wanted we were already providing.

An active guild needs active leadership and officers that help set the tone and expectations for the members. With like minded people we make an extended family in out virtual home and we have fun!

To help bring us into the next chapter of what is sure to be another great year with the guild and the content coming within game, I did not feel it would be fair to the members and the officers that I retain leadership of the guild with summer vacations and me becoming inactive.

So it was announced that I am stepping down from my role as leader, and with the support of the officers, I am pleased to announce that new role of  Guild Leader has been accepted by our very own TheImmortal (Mort) who has been an active supporter for the guild since becoming part of our family!

Mort has some great and fresh new ideas and perspectives and has been working behind the scenes for months now as not only a member of the guild but as an officer as well, and I know that he will be an awesome leader as he transitions into the new role!

I will still be around, and I'll be dropping by the message boards, website and within game when I can, so don't think I am leaving or quitting!

Now if you have not already done so, give a huge shout out of congrats to Mort here on the boards, in shout box, in mumble or in game!

I look forward to seeing all of you again soon!
Without further adieu since I am so long winded, thank you for all the support you have given me, with all of you it never seemed like a job and you all made it one of the most rewarding experiences I have ever had!

I wish you all a great summer!


Long live The Sith Legacy, The Empire, and more importantly, YOU!

GUILD NEWS: JUNE 2014

Miriel a posted Jun 6, 14

News for this month is going to follow a slightly different format from previous entries to focus on our members who make and support the guild with all that they do each day and everyday that they game with us, under our tag.

"A guild is only as strong as its members!”

The Sith Legacy has an open recruitment policy. We are a casual-social guild, with emphasis on social. We have a roster of 350+ members, characters in game between mains and alts. We have 180+ players attached to those characters between subscriber and preferred accounts.

On any given night we have at least 20 players in game consistently. Two may log off, and three more may log in, play times vary and names may change as toons cycle through but it is a constant.

New players join our guild and always have positive things to say, we ask them, especially for veteran players why and what they were looking for a guild in an effort to continually make ourselves a better guild and improve ourselves, our members and make the game more enjoyable for those we game with.

Some feedback examples:

"This is great! You guys actually communicate in guild chat!”

"I was the only player in my last guild and it was no fun to play solo.”

"I really enjoy seeing a group that helps each other out and actually does dailies and ops together!’

"There is PIE!?

When you have a guild with 180+ players there will always be something to do with others.
These players also come from different backgrounds, be it religious, nationality, ethnicity, or even lifestyles.

Check out the cultural exchange lessons by our sis Smiz, sharing what life is like in Australia on our message boards.

With all the above positives, we will often run into some negatives which will require that we be mindful of others in which we self police ourselves.

Unfortunately we needed to remove some members from the guild who were pretty immature.
We do not tolerate racial discrimination, intolerance, harassment of others, bigotry, or bashing of any type and it will not be accepted.

Our members and our officers are in this guild to have a good time and enjoy the company of like minded players. When you disrupt the enjoyment we are having in our recreations past-time and our hobby, we will remove you and not welcome you back.


Long live The Sith Legacy, The Empire, and more importantly, YOU!
