XCorps (pronounced eks-core) stands for eXploratory Corps. We're cooperative, dedicated gamers who love to have a great time in a generally family-friendly atmosphere. We have a presence in a wide variety of MMOs.
PvE, Ops, Datacrons, Achievements, Crafting, Social, PvP etc.
Originally founded on the Intrepid server of Star Wars Galaxies on October 24th, 2003 by Trigon and 8 founding officers. XCorps were the winners of Nym's Scavenger Hunt for their server. The reward was a static X-Wing decoration for their player city Vodo Falls. They were one of the top 4 guilds in attendance at the first Fan Fest in Anaheim, CA. They were rewarded with a live developer-run event featuring Boba Fett along with a fallen AT-AT Imperial walker decoration for their player city. They were the first guild in SWG to be granted two developer placed decorations. They were participants in the first jet pack crafted on Intrepid (spearheaded by Droid Engineer Atmosk) and were the first guild in SWG to craft multiple jet packs. They won free lifetime premium hosting from guildportal. Founding Officer Tonsan was featured in the SWG television commercial ("It's a persistent world!").
Rather than asking "are you right for us?" we prefer to ask "are we right for you?" You can answer this question by visiting this public post on our enjin page: What is XCorps About & is it Right for You?
tldr; Just ask to hang out with any of us, for any ingame content, so we get a chance to know each other.
Joining XCorps is accomplished through active member referrals. Interested parties should visit the enjin website for site membership and maybe post a "hi" in the forums. You may also contact one of the Officers listed below and join XCorps members for in-game grouping. Any active member can recommend a candidate for immediate recruitment after one of these events. Once invited new members spend a week at the Recruit rank before being promoted to Member. The only restriction on Recruit ranks is sponsoring new members themselves.
XCorps uses a premium dedicated Mumble server and consider it vital to the success of the guild. It improves efficiency and promotes camaraderie. It isn't required for general guild membership but monitoring the channel while participating in [endgame content] may be required. Joining XCorps in voice chat is strongly recommended, as members who don't utilize it could feel left out of the loop at times.
A microphone is required to speak in Mumble, but some members who prefer not to speak and only monitor the voice traffic will only need speakers. Download the Mumble client here: Download Link
Our voice chat atmosphere is casual family-friendly fun in our main default Cantina channel. There's always someone knowledgeable around and movie quotes often work their way into the conversation. We have dedicated channels for Ops, Dailies and other various events including PvP (where language restrictions aren't enforced).
The following are the posted guidelines the XCorps leadership requires all new members to agree to:
Any in-game communication is bound by the game's community standards. We recognize some members have young children at home so we self-monitor ourselves. This means using a PG rating as a guideline for guild chat, voice chat, and spatial messages, etc. There's allowances, for example the occasional surprised reaction, however our rules are not subject to loopholes. We just ask that you be reasonable. Private comms are your business.
XCorps has no interest in taking advantage of younger or inexperienced players for personal gain, nor in anyone who finds this acceptable. Harsh attitudes towards these types of players is also something XCorps is not about. Every member is an XCorps ambassador to the gaming community.
Lastly XCorps is a diverse guild and we don't approve of intolerance that targets groups. Merit should be based on the words and actions of individuals. There's no warning for this, if it happens the offender is subject to permanent removal from XCorps.
Acolytes of Fayth <AoF>
XCorps has a close and long-lasting alliance with Acolytes of Fayth (AoF) dating back to the early days both guilds were located on the Intrepid server of SWG. After the NGE most of XCorps departed SWG and those that stayed worked with AoF. When the Intrepid server was brought down permanently both guilds moved to the Starsider server. AoF established a new guild on this server and the remaining/returning XCorps members joined this guild rather than starting a poorly populated guild of their own. AoF members have now joined XCorps in SWTOR, anyone wishing to contact their leadership directly may contact Lowy or Serena.
