What is the Terran Expeditionary Corps (TEC)? TEC is role-play, pvp oriented guild for the game Wildstar Online. We are a Dominion faction guild. Our focus is on creating a family friendly, fun gaming community for individuals interested in global domination How do I join TEC? You can apply for membership here. Before applying you are encouraged to check out our website. You are also strongly encouraged to read through our Code of Conduct. Once you have applied, feel free to introduce yourself in our public recruiting forum. What does "role-play, pvp oriented" mean? TEC is not a hardcore RP/PvP guild. However, it does encourage role-play within chat in the game. It also encourages, but does not require, PvP activity of its members. TEC will start out on a RP/PvP server if one is available. If none is available, then a PvP server will be selected. What is the backstory of the Terran Expeditionary Corps? TEC is an elite force within the Dominion military structure. It was deployed to Nexus to eliminate Admiral Brightland and the Exile forces. However, the TEC fleet was destroyed by automated Eldan defense systems and is currently attempting to regroup on the surface of Nexus. A full treatment of the history of the TEC can be found here. What are the requirements for joining TEC? Members can be of any activity level from casual to hardcore. TEC supports PvE, PvP, and RP activities. Prospective members of TEC should: Be of the Dominion faction Be of the Human or Mechari races. Characters of other races may be accepted, but this would be an exception rather than the rule. Be at least 16 years of age Be willing to abide by the Code of Conduct Be interested in building a fun, family friendly online gaming community There are no requirements for minimum gaming hours each week, though participation in meetings and events is encouraged. How is TEC structured? TEC is structured in a pseudo-military fashion. Within TEC there are three companies. Alpha Company is designed for players who are passionate about PvE content. Beta Company is designed for players who are passionate about PvP content. Delta company is designed for a mix of more casual players who want to be part of the Corps, but who are not as interested in an intense gaming experience. Company assignments are made at recruitment, but can be changed at any time. In addition, companies are not restrictive. For example, you can be a member of Beta company and still play heavily in PvE content. Companies are meant to group players with other players of common interest, not restrict them from other types of gameplay. What are the short term goals for TEC since the game is not out yet? We have several short term goals. Obviously building a member-base is a major priority. Beyond that, we have the following goals: Fine tune the current guild website and add elements to help it more readily identify as a Wildstar Online associated site. We are definitely interested in members with web design skills or graphics skills who would be interested in helping in this area. Fine tune current guild policies and structure to meet the needs of its members. Engage as many members in the Wildstar Beta when it launches as possible. Build the community and strengthen the community by engaging in other games (Mechwarrior Online, SWTOR, or other games as indicated by the membership) until such time as Wildstar becomes widely available. Ultimately we want to build THE premier Dominion guild in preparation for launch. What kind of voice chat support do you offer? TEC uses C3 for its voice chat technology. Voice chat is NOT required. However, it ca be a fun way to connect with other members. Details on setting up C3 can be found here.
