Vanquish is a guild of moderation first and foremost. Does this mean we will not push hard? Strive to be our best? Make a name for ourselves or see all that a game has to offer? Not at all! On the contrary, as a guild of "moderation" we choose to explore every bit of content the game throws our way from PvP to PvE, End Game to Crafting and light RP without pigeon holing ourselves into saying we focus on any one aspect. There is simply too much FUN content to explore in an MMO for that, we prefer to say we are a guild focused on...ALL OF IT! Placing and emphasis on the player behind the keyboard we care little for how "leet" you are or how you rank in game X. We are a family and supporting one another in an honest and confident way is what drives us as a guild. We are "casually hardcore"!
The name Vanquish was taken to show our intention not only in terms of game content but also in regards to overcoming the obstacles a guild sees in its lifetime and the relationships we build with our guild mates that lead towards the success of the guild as a whole!
Oakos is the soul founder and overall guild director, the buck stops here! He is supported by the guilds overall second in command, Tormennt and their core of Officers.
While Vanquish was designed from the ground up as a new guild for GW2 its leadership has over a decade of experience leading teams both in game and out and has since branched into a number of other MMOs including Neverwinter and ESO with others to follow!
Vanquish is focused on seeing and exploring all a game has to offer this includes the end game.
We are RP "encouraged" in that we do not enforce such but we encourage if not respect our RP community - RP found in Vanquish will be specifically event driven and optional.
***Certain traditions such as promotions and in guild awards are held in an RP fashion to solidify their importance***
We cater to an older crowd and use the 18+ rule loosely, applicants can plead their case to leadership should they truly feel hanging out with a bunch of OLD guys is the path they wish to follow.
Indeed we will! Vanquish has plans to engage in all manner of PvX offered by the worlds we call home including the formation of specialized divisions of small and elite teams focused on specific PvP objectives.
Being we are new we will start out small with the intent on reaching a critical mass of roughly 75-100 unique members...HOWEVER our application process is slow by design in order to weed out any bad apples or members that are not a good fit with Vanquish, this means leadership is taking their time in terms of recruitment and always will.
Day to day we will not require Vent use however some group content and especially end game content will require such. That said Vent is an excellent means of communication and guild cohesion, the use of it is highly encouraged and FUN!
Absolutely! Fostering a strong leadership is the Commanders number one priority, if you think you have what it takes just remember actions speak louder than words! A note on ranks in Vanquish: Ranks in Vanquish are not meant to separate or divide our members they are simply a means of added content, RP flare and most importantly a way for our members to evolve their own leadership skills and strengths.
When a member becomes just a number in a guild the leader needs to hang it up. Once you have the guild tag over your head here in Vanquish you become part of something bigger, we look out for one another and strive to better our guild mate standing next to us. First and foremost the player behind the keyboard is our priority.
While the leader of Vanquish is PST we have members playing in CST and EST as well.
While this can fluctuate with the active roster the average age range found in Vanquish is between 30-50.
