REIGN was first established in 2010 by a group of veteran gamers who were intent on playing Star Wars: The Old Republic, a.k.a. SWTOR. These individuals previously helped build guilds for other games and had remained in touch through the years. They applied everything they had learned from previous experiences to improve every aspect of how this guild would operate. The result is a finely-tuned environment whereby fun is the focus and all the administrative and political nonsense that so many other guilds succumb to is eliminated.
We focus on all aspects of the games we play; Player-vs-Environment ("PvE"), Player-vs-Player ("PvP") and lite Role-Playing ("RP"). We provide attention and all the necessary tools and leadership required to facilitate activities in each endeavor. You can participate in any facet of our gaming experiences as much or as little as you'd like.
REIGN is a casual/core-friendly, role-playing-lite guild that focuses on establishing a community that:
We strive to eliminate the ideals associated with mega-guilds where members are nothing more than a number, forced to do things like specialize their class a certain way to simply fill a niche, and complicated bureaucracies or misappropriation of priorities can get in the way of enjoying the game and the guild. Our intention is to place fun as our first and foremost priority.
With regards to REIGN's philosophy as it pertains to PvE interactions within the MMORPG's that we dedicate ourselves to, we adhere to the following:
Have fun and progress without stress. Laugh at mistakes and take things lightly.
This is not to say that we sacrifice progress and advancement or lack passion... we do in fact put forth our best efforts, give 100% of our ability and listen to constructive feedback from one another when necessary, but we do strive to act respectively whilst keeping emotions in check and knowing when to say "when." This is partially what makes REIGN so very successful in terms of PvE progression in the games we play.
REIGN recognizes the competitive spirit that accompanies PvP gameplay and with that in mind, we take to heart the following:
Do not act in an unsportsmanlike fashion, but rather enjoy a healthy dose of fun competition with the opposition.
Similar to PvE, our PvP motto requires one to be mature and keep emotions in check. Remember to take a step back and always realize that it's just a game.
REIGN's leadership team, known internally as Sovereigns (Guild Masters) and Overlords (Officers) are just that... a TEAM. We do not subscribe to dictatorship philosophies where power and authority resides with any one person. While it may work for some, our vast experience in leading and playing in guilds (with some of the leadership team members having over a decade of experience in leading online gaming communities) has taught us that such structures are prone to failure and lead to drama, dissent and possible divisions.
Our structure acts as a series of checks and balances, whereby all decisions that affect the guild as a whole are vetted internally and viewed from all possible angles to make sure the decision is in the best interest of the guild.
REIGN implements a well-organized structure that provides an adequate and easy-to-understand support system capable of handling all guild matters across the games we play in a reasonably timely manner. Here is an organizational chart of REIGN's rank structure which displays the rank paths and emblems assigned for each tier:
