    First off, thank you for taking your time to visit this thread! The below post contains all of the relevant information regarding our community, its values and its goals, which I hope will interest you in icU° Gaming.

    The Facts

    We use TeamSpeak 3! The address is only available to members of icU° Gaming for security purposes.

    A Brief Introduction

    icU° Gaming is a Europe based gaming community with over one thousand members worldwide. It is active as a guild or a clan in a variety of games such as Global Agenda, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 as well as operating a dedicated Minecraft server!
    Some of our future endeavors include Guild Wars 2 and now Firefall!

    Due to its Europe-focused player base, it is a diverse and rich community that is naturally accepting of all cultures and nationalities. Nothing is foreign to us!
    Many gamers might be discouraged by the thought of an European player base but rest assured, despite the fact that the majority of our members are from Europe, icU° Gaming has many active members in North America as well.
    This has led icU° Gaming to become a friendly, tight-knit and supporting community which plays a broad variety of current games including ones outside of the "officially adopted" games.

    Our Values and Attitudes

    We hope to appeal to players of all genres and attitudes, whether this would be FPS players, RPG players, gamers who are PvP orientated and gamers who are not. Our community does not discriminate against certain genres or styles; we are always open to new areas of the gaming world!

    Furthermore, we wish to provide members with a friendly and supportive environment which is both casual and serious. This means that our main objective is to foster a fun attitude whilst simultaneously displaying success with our guilds in the various games!
    We have no rules on seriousness, language or the like but still maintain a positive stance where we do not tolerate any form of abuse towards fellow members (inappropriate comments, racist remarks etc.) nor do we allow any kind of hacking within official icU games. We recognize that there is a thin but clear line between joking around and causing unnecessary grief to members, so please do not feel discouraged or limited by these rules. (A detailed list of rules may be found here)

    Activities

    As mentioned previously, we operate in a wide variety of games. To say the least, these are the games that we are the most active in or the games with the most potential for a guild or a clan.
    While we expect nothing of our members, we do ask of some commitment to the game at group events or competitive guild vs. guild matches. We will favor the most active and committed players over the skilled yet unreliable ones. However do not feel distressed if you have a lot going on in your life, we understand! Everyone has some important and time-consuming event at some point in their lives! 24/7 commitment is not asked for unlike with some communities out there!

    With that being said, we also enjoy many current games which are group-orientated such as Team Fortress 2, Dungeon Defenders and League of Legends. These games are nearly always impromptu and depend on current new releases or are simply classics that our members enjoy playing independently of icU° Gaming.
    So feel free to hop on in (at the group leaders discretion) when you see us playing something other than what is on the official game roster.

    Why Firefall?

    Good question! Well to answer it simply, a number of our members have expressed interest in Firefall and we felt that we have enough to start an army. We have also taken into consideration the fact that a large number of our member base enjoys shooters and would naturally be attracted to Firefall, especially the players in our Global Agenda agency who obviously like the idea of futuristic MMOFPS games!

    Also the game looks damn-good, so there should not be any need to justify playing it!

    Our Goal in Firefall

    While our main focus will be Army versus Army gameplay, we also wish to focus on other aspects of the game.
    Our main goal is to establish a player base within Firefall that provides support and teammates whether it is in PvE or PvP. Due to our varied player base, we will have many members which will enjoy one or the other, if not both. So if you are stuck on that one mission or just need another player on your team, simply give us a quick shout!

    A Small Summary

If you wish to join one of the friendliest and supportive gaming communities in Europe, please head over to http://www.icugaming.co.uk.

    Thanks Angel :)
    I do not know if we have enough players for a dedicated Oceanic squad but from Global Agenda I know that some EU and NA players played during Oceanic session on the weekend.

    oh btw Vbdude.... think you forgot 1 important thing..... we're gonna be a part of the most kick-ass alliance in this game.... Deathwatch and Stryke are join up with us and we might even get hold of Protocol aswell ^^
  13. #13
    Doubt that. Hamaya is the supreme over-lord of ragnarok which I belong to
  14. #14
    well he might want to merge with us maybe?
    Could be good for both ^^
  15. #15
    I don't think so personally. We are just casual and I'm happy with what it's like at the moment.

    Like I said, I look forward to facing you on the battlefield.
  16. #16

    Looking forward to it too, an alliance might be plausible but considering that the games isn't even out yet, we should wait a little and see from there ;)

    Sounds great, I might add it in later, maybe we should discuss this in our regular forums?

    An alliance would be interesting. Currently we are allied with the herd which is one of the larger armies.


    Only bonus I can think of is a greater variety of people who will accept you a stranger into their group and they could give away resources that you need.

    Yeah the only thing that I could think of would be resource sharing like you mentioned and essentially protection as you are guaranteed that the other Army won't attack you.
