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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
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.
If you like what you’ve just read then check us out. If you have any question or simply want to talk about opportunities within IGC before you commit, feel free to send me a PM on this site or shoot me an email.
