Our guild philosophy is something we take pretty seriously here in EQ; and so far we’ve only been exploring a part of what that philosophy encompasses. We started this guild with the goal to make a haven for mature and capable players who had all of the skillset to push progression but were limited by the host of ills that befall more hardcore guilds.
I couldn’t be more proud of the way we have realized this goal in such a short time and part of my vision for this guild is to make Mythic content accessible to those who, in other situations, wouldn’t be able to meet unreasonable requirements or don’t want to play in a toxic environment. The second part of my vision for EQ is to harbor a culture of enabling players to go beyond what they thought themselves capable of achieving, without making them change their own circumstances or limitations. We see the tip of the iceberg of this already but its something we want to continue to promote.
The amount of interest surrounding the Friday runs are growing steadily and as such we want to make a space for that and make sure each of those players feels every much as valuable as a EQ member as our Mythic raiders and Officers. What we will be doing going forward is officially making a space for the group of players who choose to run on Fridays only and officially hosting that run as the “EQ Community Team Run“. We have a lot of friends out there and are part of something bigger in the greater WoW community so we want to recognize that and also take responsibility ourselves to be the catalyst of growing and improving that community. We will be providing a new rank for the Community Team members called “Diplomat” both in game and in Discord. We want these players to feel a sense of belonging above the common denominator of Citizen. We also want to be celebrating the achievements of our Community Team in Discord and on our website and using our great reputation on Zul’jin to attract new likeminded players to fill the Community Team’s needs.
