Checkmate is a Hardcore Guild focused on maintaining a heavy server presence in both PvP and PvE. That said, PvP is one of our core focuses as it helps us maintain server presence and achieve our objectives as a guild. We do not accept pure PvE players.
Expect to see our presence heavily across the server. We aim to be at the forefront of clearing content and to have our name inscribed in every place we can.
We’re looking for players that are motivated and driven. We believe that one cannot excel at PvP unless they are consistent in clearing PvE content. Efficiency, Organization and Respect are the core values that we are built upon. We do not require that our members invest X amount of hours on a daily basis, what matters to us is that our members constantly progress towards end game and stay relevant.
We understand that people have lives and cannot invest ridiculous amounts of hours into a game. What matters to us is that you as a player, progress towards end game. (Be it in the form of gearing up, clearing content, etc)
If you’re a Semi-hardcore player and are interested in joining us, reach out to us on Discord and talk to us. We’re willing to make exceptions under certain circumstances.
As for crafters, we’ve got a few dedicated slots set aside for you. Understand that this is a position of importance as we’ll be relying on you to excel at your profession to provide our members with high quality gear.
Our members are encouraged to record screenshots/videos/chat logs regarding any sensitive incident that takes place so that we may review it and appropriately handle the situation.
Often the primary reason for being kicked is due to them tarnishing the Guild’s image, be it via public trash talk or by going against what we stand for. Other reasons include members simply being a dick.
We've integrated our spreadsheets and bots to work with Discord to ensure a simple yet effective method of management. Our members are able to adjust their data across our spreadsheets via integrated bot commands within Discord. No messy permissions or confusing edits. The above combined with our in-house coded Discord Bots lets us provide our members with an array of tools to better enjoy their experience.
Besides the above, Discord lets us manage an active roster and is an alternative to the traditional forums as it lets us host both text and voice channels for our members. It plays an important role in our guild as it is available on both PC and Android, thus allowing us to stay in touch with our community.
An optional Teamspeak server is available for static groups that need it.
We are firmly against public trash talk of any form. At Checkmate we believe in building a good reputation for ourselves, as such, when you carry the name of the guild or our Tag/Insignia, you represent us and what we stand for.
Chat has a tendency to get heated with insults being thrown around all over the place. As a member of Checkmate under no circumstances are you to lash back at people that are insulting you in any public chat (World chat/Region chat/Battleground chat/etc.) Feel free to reply with a witty comeback, but trash talk is not allowed.
That said, what happens in PM’s stays in PM’s.
