IT’S YUUUUGE GINORMOUS NEWS:
Shadow Alliance is just shy of being two years old in SW:TOR and all our members past, present and future have made this a really enjoyable guild to be a part of, with some of the best people around.
Our players support each other in game and out. We never have issues internally with bigotry, harassment, or overall drama. We police our own in a casual, socially relaxed and friendly atmosphere where we try to help each out when we can, and in a manner that no one takes advantage of others who are willing to help.
So to everyone, take credit where it is due, congratulate each other and say thanks!
It is well earned and well deserved which leads on into our next bit of news!
MEMBER APPRECIATION MONTH:
Really need to give a shout-out to Djavel (aka Thor, aka Ostermancer, aka Devil) for kicking this off and getting this started. There are so many that do so much and never ask for anything in return, we wanted to say thank you and let you know you are really, APPRECIATED!
We know who you are! You always are willing to craft gear for someone. You are always willing to jump into a flashpoint. You are always willing to help someone with their class quest! You are always willing to change your role (from preferred play style) to what is needed for an operation.
So starting this month and going forward to those we really appreciate we will be working hard for you, to gift you in game with either crafted gear, tradeable items or purchasable sets (within reason, we all want tunings or Sith Recluse sets), or what we may already have in the guild banks.
Some of you were already tapped for your happy list and more tappings will be happening!
The end of summer has arrived, fall officially started and many of us have returned back to adult life with school, parenting, social service, work and what-nots. Our in game roster has not been cleaned (Miri’s fault) in sometime, and well a line-in-the-sand had to be drawn.
If you have not logged in with one of your characters from your legacy by 15OCT or sent a note that you will be inactive, then you may be removed from the guild. The hardest part is so many good people not with us who are remembered well, it is hard to remove those characters.
With the new expansion “Due to be released soon” and the final runs for the Dark Versus Light event we are going to open recruiting again for those who may want to give is a test run, see if they like us and want to hang out!
What a month for conquests from the little guild that can! Another new title added to those who hit their personal conquest goals and contributed to the guild’s total points for, “CONQUEROR OF MAKEB!” We continued to not only rank during last months conquest hitting twelve straight weeks in a row, but even our Republic Chapter ranked one week in sixth!
Jumping the gun a bit, but on the conquest which ran from 27SEPT and ended this week on 3OCT, we also hit a new high total in overall points breaking our prior records! While the larger guilds can say “They did that,” for us it is major as we don’t “Fluff The Roster.” Quality over Quantity is our mantra! So another congrats to everyone that makes Shadow Alliance rock!
Saturday night ops have been progressing thanks to leads by Samu and Devil along with everyone who has been joining in and getting gear tokens and having fun in a relaxed atmosphere where it has been fun! Many learning even more mechanics and where everyone who had never done ops before feel welcome! Chat in voice has even been lively and fun!
Progression’s are even moving into hard mode Ops on Friday nights with the Devil’s Dance where some of the off-missions with world boss hunts are included.
These fill fast so be sure to RSVP for both Friday and Saturday nights when you can join us as those who RSVP (even with a maybe) get first invites. (SIDE NOTE: All ops promptly start on time and if not available prior to start time, you may lose your slot.)
Had to save the best for last. As you can see from above two people have really gone above and beyond over the last several months contributing in ways that benefit everyone involved by taking on leadership roles and volunteering while asking nothing in return, and leading operations and guidance to everyone!
So without further adieu, please join in congratulating both Devil and Samu as our two newest officers in the guild!
WE ARE SA!
ZYM! WE MISS YOU! (Thanks also!)
