Impact Gaming Community - A Multi-Game MMOG Community

A Multi-Game MMOG Community

Greetings! I'm Grey, MMO player and Community Manager/Founder for the Impact Gaming Community (IGC).  We are a Multi-Game, Multi-skill, PC Gaming Community and are always on the lookout for talented players like yourself who are seeking a long-term place to game that they can call Home.  Maybe IGC is the place for you.  Let me tell you a bit about it and you can decide for yourself if we’re the place you want to game.

History

IGC began as a single, small group of friends in July of 2010. That group formed Neutral Impact and still exists today. NI plays Final Fantasy XIV and has been raiding since version 1.0 of the game (you know, the terrible one).  From our then-small group an interest to play Rift arose. A few of our players wished to remain together and form a new guild.  Violent Impact was born, and Impact Gaming Community was created!

Since that time we've added numerous guilds and gamer groups across several MMOs, MOBAs, and other games.  We’ve experienced Star Wars: The Old Republic, Rift, Guild Wars 2, Wildstar, TERA to name a few. Over the years guilds have come and gone but our reach has extended even into games like Rocket League, World of Tanks, and DOTA 2.  The roster of games changes as we grow, expand, and interest within our playerbase changes.

Philosophy

IGC is about having fun. We seek fun-loving and mature adults with a semi-hardcore mentality. We define that as players who min/max everything and play at the highest level possible, but can't necessarily login for more than 3-4 hours a night. We believe real life comes first and want to know each and every player we recruit will respect your time.

IGC is highly organized. Mostly everything is scheduled so you always know when your group's events are happening. We use an event calendars to make this happen. Leaders are transparent with their members too. We post on our forums, use guild messages, and converse on Teamspeak to keep our members in the loop on both community-wide and guild-related matters. Recently we’ve added Google Hangout to the list of ways to communicate.  This has allowed us to reach the wide audience of our entire community, while still allowing for smaller groups to organize within their own group chats too.  It has really brought us together in a big way.

IGC is about connections. Like anywhere else, you join a guild to play a game. Beyond that, the community offers a way to connect with players across games. Members can hop to another game when they want to and participate in any way they choose. No one's locked into anything, although I would say the majority of our players tend to stay in one group while making friends in others without moving games. We share everything at IGC; Teamspeak, forums, youtube channel, twitter, steam group, and Google Hangouts. We don't just look for players to join our guilds or groups. **We look for players that want to establish themselves long-term with us**. We want players that have a desire to grow within our community and prepare for upcoming titles if they wish.

Goals

Our primary goal is to continue to grow and remain a solid gaming community that provides our members with the highest quality possible experience. This is important to us and we've put in a lot of work to be successful and showcase our talents whenever possible. We feel that continued success is the best way to bring in new players.


At the end of the day we try to provide a gaming experience like no other; one that is enjoyable and conducive to building long-lasting friendships. We recruit the types of players we feel can help make that happen. While we can't make everyone happy we do what we can to make the most amount of people feel at home with us.


Offerings
So you might be asking your "what does IGC offer?" Besides a great place to game, our community offers all the following to all its members:

  • Great-looking website
  • Shared community forums
  • Ever-growing list of games
  • Mobility between groups
  • 500-person Teamspeak
  • Monthly Podcasts (you can be part of it!)
  • Social media connections (Youtube, Twitter, Steam, Facebook, Twitch)
  • Best of all: A place to call Home!
This is just the start of what we offer. What you bring to the table transcends all the things we could possibly offer you, the player. Everyone contributes their own special bit of magic to our community and that is just as important to our growth as any of the the stuff above. It sounds sappy but it's 100% true.

Growth
IGC grows because some of our players step-up to take on new projects that allow us to provide more games to everyone. Sometimes we bring in new players that are qualified and motivated to lead a new chapter or gamer group too. We're always on the lookout for:
  • Qualified Guild Leader/Masters
  • Motivated Officers
  • Reliable Members
  • Fun-loving Casuals
  • People who like writing
  • Forum-lurkers!

When I began this community it had 5 players to start and we peaked at over 300 in our history. This doesn't happen without leaders, casuals, and everything in between. Yeah, we're pretty picky about who gets to be a Guild Leader or an Officer but that's what makes our community stronger than many others.

    This advert just reminds me so much of some of the "too serious" corp adverts from EVE-Online... maturity requirements are understandable in this day and age, adult requirement not so much... not unless you wanna get your ass handed to you by reddit's guild (which will happen in Archeage).

    We're pretty far from "too serious".  It's hard to convey all this information without seeming that way though. Just a bunch of people who love gaming and do it well in the limited time we have and are looking for others to join us. Pretty simple!

    Ok can i make a suggestion :)
     
    It would be partially handy if you had a list in there of games you are active in, heck maybe even approx numbers who are playing that game,
    I might of been interested but i got bored after the first paragraph and my head hurt trying to figure out if you even play any games or are just in FF XXXXX
    Just a suggestion but a section which active games/numbers..
     
    good luck either way

    This post is all my opinion, but I welcome debate on anything i have put, however, personal slander / name calling belongs in game :) were of course your welcome to call me names im often found lounging about in EvE online.
    Use this code for 21days trial in eve online https://secure.eveonline.com/trial/?invc=d385aff2-794a-44a4-96f1-3967ccf6d720&action=buddy

  • Grey950Grey950 New City, NYMember Posts: 64 Uncommon
    It's hardly a "wall of text".  If you look 2 inches down to the 4th small paragraph it has a list of games we play.  Thanks.

    You guys actually pay for 4 different MMOs?...SWTOR was the only one on the list that was free and GW2 was the only one that was b2p......Also how do you find time for so many MMOs?...I could see if you were dedicated to one or two of those but 5 with a 6th on the way?...Or do your members just pick and choose from those MMOs?
  • Grey950Grey950 New City, NYMember Posts: 64 Uncommon
    We have unique groups for each and every game we play.  A few members might overlap, playing like SW:TOR and DayZ or FFXIV and Dota 2, but no one plays more than 1 MMO at the same time with serious dedication to both.  This is a working man's community, ain't nobody got time for that much play.

    IGC will be running two online tabletop RPG game nights per week beginning this weekend. Also we're looking to bring back online board/card gaming with Friday night Cards Against Humanity, Settlers of Catan, Guillotine, and maybe even Diplomacy if we get the right crew.

    In general the community will be looking to accommodate a wider variety of player styles, even casual. If you're looking to bring something to the table for our community or just want to play something with us, hit me up on here or the above email. We are still considering most of the above positions as well as others at this time. Nothing is out of bounds at this point if we get the leadership to organize stuff!

    As a member of IGC since before it even was IGC (5+ years) - I'd like to take the time to express not why I joined, but why I stay!

    Gaming is a way of life for most gamers. It's more than a hobby, it's a marriage. 'Till death do us part! At IGC we are constantly evolving, finding innovative ways to immerse ourselves in this marriage. 

    We don't just have a group of people who play this or that - we have a community that bleeds gaming. Podcasts, Wiki's, Tabletop (Including old school D&D campaigns), Facebook, Twitter, a YouTube Channel, a Stream Team that streams all forms of gaming, A Steam Group, A Press Team - always looking for the next "Big Thing" in gaming. Various gaming chapters, each with it's own style, it's own feel. We have Programmers, IT Professionals, Website Developers, and all facets in between. We aren't paid to do it - we do it because of our passion for gaming. 

    At IGC - You quickly realize you aren't alone in your passion. You become a piece of a much larger whole, where not only do you feel like you "Fit In", you feel like you "Belong". There is no overbearing management BS that you have to jump through hoops for. If you want to come up with something new and exciting, start a new chapter or just become part of another team - you're given all of the tools to realize your vision. For free! No dues to pay, No forms to sign - let your imagination be your guide. Why wouldn't you want to be part of something like that? These are just some of the reasons I choose to stay. They are also some of  the reasons you should choose to join!

    Look, if you're into playing games - online, console, emulator, old school pen & paper - anything - IGC is the home you haven't visited yet. So pack up your stuff, load it in a truck and drive on over. We'll even help you move in!

    Some news to report. Neutral Impact has cleared A3S in FFXIV, our WoW guild has gone on hiatus until the next expansion, and we are restarting our Guild wars 2 group for the next content coming up. We have a podcast coming up this Sunday at 7pm EST which you can catch on www.twitch.tv/greyjorildyn at that time. We have started the Friday night Rocket league group and so far it has been just me and a few others but it's been super fun.

    We continue to seek leadership and players from all walks of life. Currently we are recruiting for CS:GO, GW2, FFXIV, Minecraft, Trove, Diablo III and anything else people might want to start up.
