http://areyoucondemned.net/ Condemned has now opened recruitment for WildStar for experienced, hardcore PVE raiders and PVPers. A Seven-Year Established History of Achievement As One of MMO gaming’s top guilds. For the last seven years, Condemned has been on the cutting edge of PVP domination and ranked PVE progression. While many guilds can claim to have intentions of topping ranked ladders, leading servers to world PVP wins, and downing PVE content with efficiency for world ranks, Condemned is one of the few who has the past track record and pedigree to ensure it. Strong, Stable Leadership and Dedicated Members. The majority of our leadership corps has been in place for half a decade, and is viewed by membership as holding both high expectations for players while also being fair and transparent in the design of policies and in determining guild direction. Leadership views their role as ensuring the strength of the team, rather than being in a position of ⦁ power. One only needs to look at our high retention rate of members alongside the acquisition of top tier players who have played against us, on the opposing faction, in previous games as a reflection of our exceptional culture. Elite—but humble—players. Our guild roster boasts dozens of world ranked raiders, multi-season Gladiators, tournament champions, and MLG competitors who approach MMOs with an achievement-oriented philosophy and strive to excel at all aspects of the game. Despite the reputation of the members of ‘hard core’ guilds, our players are humble – constantly working to improve their individual and team performance, while contributing to both a fun but professional atmosphere. We believe in walking the walk, not talking the talk. Mature, Organized, Team-Based Play. Our guild philosophy is centered on the concept of team, and you will find exceptional team-based play in both our PVP and PVE engagements. As a result of this philosophy, our guild invests heavily into the coaching and development of our members – we have in-house strategists and theorycrafters, an officer corps that provides ongoing feedback and coaching to membership, and a crafting system that pools resources to ensure economic monopolization. Quality over Quantity. Unlike many PVP guilds that have a zerg mentality, our roster targets are substantially less. In past games, we’ve found that our roster size allows for us to ensure adequate development of all of our members, effective execution of our strategies, and a team-based atmosphere, which has allowed us to dominate other guilds against three to one odds. This is not a guild where the contributions of an individual player to the team are lost, due to size. Close ties with Developers and a Reputation of Professionalism. Our professional, team-based focus and organized work ethic has led us to developing deep relationships with the most prominent development studios across the country, and we are often tapped to provide pre-launch or ongoing feedback to these teams. Members are required to spend additional time providing feedback in tests when we are called upon.

GUILDWARS2 INSIDER: "All in all, the all-star members of Condemned are going to make a large splash in the Guild Wars 2 community, as already evidenced, but once they get in-game, everyone will get to see where they really pull out the stops." GUILDWARS2 WvW: http://gw2wvw.com/ma...ight-condemned/ "If you are serious your MMORPGs and value winning as a team above all else, you need to give Condemned a serious look, as progression and victory is their calling card. Guild Wars 2 looks like it will be no exception in this regard." GUILDWARS2HUB: "During our discussions we also dug deeply into the mechanics of structured PvP, including an interesting look at the pros and cons of melee vs. ranged builds based on the first beta weekend event. The following discussion is one that fans of Guild Wars 2’s structured PvP won’t want to miss! TEN TON HAMMER: http://www.tentonhammer.com/gw2/features/interviews/exclusive-interview-with-condemned-part-one "One of MMO gaming's top competitive guilds... set apart from the rest of the herd." GUILD WARS 2 PC: http://guildwars2pc.com/2012/gw2pc-...g-with-guild-wars-2-just-ask-condemned-guild/ “It gives us Mesmer butterflies knowing Guild Wars 2 is attracting ubercaliber PVP players. Newbies might be groaning now at the idea of fighting against Condemned, a superleet guild in World vs. World, but remember you might be allies with them.” ASK A JEDI: http://www.askajedi.com/2012/01/19/...all-16-man-nightmare-mode-operations-cleared/ “Yesterday will forever be remembered in the annals of TOR history. Not only was the game’s first content update, Rise of the Rakghouls, delivered to players but all of the most difficult raid content was been cleared in what will be known in the future as Vanilla TOR. Our buds in Condemned, a competitive progression guild in Star Wars: The Old Republic raided through the night (literally) with the impending maintenance window bearing down on them. That effort has paid off as they not only motored through the newly expanded Karagga’s Palace, they sent us the final kill shot of Soa, the final boss in The Eternity Vault, in the wee hours this morning. World First.” CORELLIAN RUN RADIO: http://corellianrun.com/2011/11/01/guild-checkpoint-16 “A treat… a guild that has won many accolades and rankings in several MMOs. If you tend to be more the hardcore player, give Condemned consideration.” TOR SYNDICATE PODCAST: http://torsyndicate.com/m/articles/view/TORSyndicate-Episode-39-No-escape-from-Condemnation “Wow… this guild is just so organized. They really have their act together. This guild is locked, cocked, and ready to rock – all of their stuff is well honed. They’re going to do very well. If you’re looking for a guild that has their act together, this is it. Ambitious aims at progression and dominance.” A talented, experienced player. While we recognize that there are many guilds who accept members regardless of their previous achievements, Condemned is not one of them. Our application and interview process is intensive and highly selective, and we only bring in players with a provable track record of results. This level of selectivity is not only one of the reasons for our history of achievements; it’s also the reason many of our members have been with us for multiple years – they know they’re playing with other individuals that they can learn from and rely on. Dependable. Condemned hosts scheduled guild events four nights a week, and we expect our members to be in attendance. While we understand the balance between gaming and other priorities, we require members to post in advance when they will be unable to attend along with rationale. In addition, we expect members to do their homework – selecting the most optimal builds, honing their play, and familiarizing themselves with our PVP tactics and trainings. Participation on our ranked, structured PVP teams requires additional time commitments for practice. Rule-Abiding. We have a no-tolerance policy for cheating, the use of exploits, and the use of third party programs. We also have stringent guidelines regarding interaction with the community, the server, and the public at large. In the extremely rare case where a member has been found to make use of exploits or to talk trash or troll in public forums, they have been removed from the guild immediately. Team and Achievement-Oriented. “Hunt as a pack” is a guiding philosophy of our guild, and you should be both willing and excited to ascribe to it in all aspects of the game. From leveling to crafting to PVP to resource acquisition, our focus is on teamwork. Given the substantial effort that we put into providing instruction and feedback to our players, each member of Condemned is expected to improve on a regular basis and to strive for achievement in every aspect of the game. If you believe that you are an individual that prioritizes individual achievement/ego over the success of the team, this is not the guild for you. FAQ Is Condemned a multi-gaming guild? No. While we have played numerous games in the past, we dedicate ourselves solely to a single game, which will be WildStar for the foreseeable future. Are you a PVE or a PVP guild? Both. In every game we have played we have strived for the top achievements in all aspects of the game. For WildStar, we are accepting applicants for dedicated raiding slots, as well as for our PVP teams. What if I’m worried I don’t have the experience to be accepted? If the above section “You Are” describes you in more ways than not, we encourage you to apply. Our application system is designed to assess multiple competency areas and with ensuring that those we bring into the guild are the right fit. If your application is declined, it is because you would not be a good fit with the guild, and that predictiveness works out advantageously for both you and for Condemned. How can I raise my chances of being admitted? Put serious thought and time into your application, which is a reflection of who you are as a player. We do not advance applications past initial review where the effort indicates that they do not place the same degree of preparation into their work as the other members of our guild. Do you cut members from the guild often? It is within our best interests as a guild to retain our players, while also maintaining high expectations for performance. Members are cut if they break any of our no-tolerance rules or for non-approved inactivity. In the case of lower skill levels, we provide rigorous feedback and coaching support to improve performance, with cutting being the last—and rare—step if improvements are not made. Will recruitment and applications be open over the long-term? No. We have a target roster size alongside targets for each class. As we are expanding our roster to ensure our competitiveness in both 40-man raiding and competitive PVP, our application process is more open now than it will be next week and next month. Once we have reached our targets, the application process will close. Who should I contact with additional questions before applying? Our VOIP is public and information is accessible via our public forums. Simply log-in and contact any officer – at least one is usually available 24/7.
