The Enclave is a long standing gaming community that does whatever it takes to win we have fun while doing it. We're always looking for people with the same mindset regardless of play style.

[ Requirements ]

Use Discord » Discord is our VOIP of choice.

Have Good Attitude » We will take a mediocre player with a great attitude and desire to improve over a phenomenal player with a bad attitude and unwillingness to learn.

Always Do Your Best » Not everyone is perfect but so long as you do the best you can we'll be happy with you.

You Need Thick Skin » During competitive events we expect a lot from our members and you will be expected to preform. If you cannot handle loud voices during intense moments you'd be better suited in another guild.

[ About ]

The Enclave is a gaming organization that has been in existence since 1998. Since then we have played and succeeded in a multitude of games. From PlanetSide to World of Warcraft The Enclave has left it's mark and is either loved or hated by the communities we've been a part of. Leadership strives to keep TE competitive yet fun. Drama is squashed out and never given a chance to cause harm. Despite the fact that we're a serious guild we do not force members to raid or PvP if they do not want to since we understand that not every members joins for the same experience. We do our best to meet the expectations of all members and all that we ask for in return is dedication and that you do your best.

[ Notable Campaigns ]

PlanetSide: 1 (2003 - 2004)
World Of Warcraft (2004 - 2017)
PlanetSide: 2 (2012 - 2013)
Guild Wars: 2 (2015-2016)
Archage: Unchained (2019 - 2020)
Foxhole (2020 - 2021)
New World (2021 - 2022)

[ Goals ]

Victory » Our motivation stems from an unrelenting desire to dominate. Our enemies immediately recognize the true opposition. It’s always us.

Legacy » Over a decade has passed since our inception. Even with the strain of time we remain an active, ambitious community. The foundation of our strength lies within our collaborative efforts. We seek to achieve excellence because at the end of the day The Enclave strives to do more than simply play the game, but to be a part of its legacy. To be honored by tales that will carry on long after us. To be immortalized in the history of the game.

Growth » No guild survives without recruits. We actively seek like-minded players who have and share the same drives and desires as us. We do our best to ensure new recruits fit in and become core members.

Fun » Despite how serious this all may sound, our primary focus is always to have fun. This is a game, and we realize that. Having an ire of professionalism does not mean we sacrifice the core of why we do what we do. If we're not having fun, there's no point to any of this.

[ Values ]

Dedication » This is very important in order to keep our guild effective and relevant. A dedicated group will always come out the victor in battles and always be ready and willing to approach new and challenging content. So long as our members stay dedicated our guild will always be relevant.

Teamwork » Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common goal and the ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is this fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results. Getting good players is easy. Getting them to play together is the hard part.

Loyalty » The greater the loyalty of individuals toward the group, the greater is the motivation among the members to achieve the goals of the group, and the greater the probability the group will achieve its goals. The true depth of our loyalty can be seen in the history of The Enclave and the number of members who have left and returned, unable to find a similar bond elsewhere.

Excellence » Champions do not become champions when they win the event, but in the hours, weeks, months and years they spend preparing for it. The victorious performance itself is merely the demonstration of their championship character. We are no different. In The Enclave, we constantly practice, refine, and improve upon everything we can in order to maintain our skill. The only way to be the best is by constantly striving to beat your previous best.

[ Why The Enclave is Successful ]

Organization » The Enclave is a large guild. We have extensive experience from various other games with organizing a large amount of people into an effective group. That is what separates us apart from other guilds of the same size. Raids are scheduled and events planned. You always have something to do in The Enclave and our numbers ensure this.

Longevity » A lot of guilds either didn't exist or failed to operate as a cohesive unit after the "big" MMOs started to go south. The Enclave never ceased to be and has steadily grown and improved over the years. When you join The Enclave you're not just joining an amazing guild but you're joining a gaming community with a bright and promising future.

Experience » The Enclave has never had a change in leadership and since 1998. There are no power struggles or drama here and the leadership certainly doesn't play favorites when it comes to policy, strategy or loot. Many of it's members are MMO veterans from EQ, DAoC, and WoW so we know these types of games inside and out.

Fun » We all play games for fun. It is the job of Enclave leadership to not only ensure that our guild runs are smooth, organized and effective but that our style of play remains fun for each and every member. We have managed to strike a balance between effective and fun and know exactly how to make sure that when you log on to play with us you're going to get exactly what you want out of this game and our guild.

[ Expectations ]

Chat On Our Discord! » Discord is our community. It is where we share our information, plans, strategies, make announcements, and many other matters of importance. Every member is expected to visit the forums on a regular basis to stay caught up on events and topics. Ten minutes every so often and a few posts here and there is not much to ask and goes a long way to having a well informed and healthy group.

On Discord When In A Group » Voice communication is absolutely vital to teamwork and strategy in-game. Every member that is in a guild group is expected to be on Discord at all times. Even members who do not talk much or have broken mics have no excuse not to be on to listen to instructions and coordinate with group leaders.

Active For Guild Events » The Enclave is an organized guild that schedules a lot of events and the success of those events depends on the activity of the guild's membership. While you're not required to come to every raid or meeting we expect you to at least make an effort to attend some.

Eager To Learn » Don't apply to this guild if you think that you already know everything there is to know and that learning is no longer possible. Every day we play we learn something new and are constantly refining our strategy and style.

Team Player » You are expected to work together with other members of the guild towards a common goal. Despite the solo friendly nature of most modern MMO games you will at some point need to work together to achieve greatness. We need you to be willing and able to do that.

Knowledge » This skill is very important in games. All members should know how the game works inside and out.

Responsibility » Don't make excuses, if you screw up man up, learn from it and move on. None of us are perfect.

[ PvP Philosophy ]

The Enclave has always taken PvP seriously. Our roots are in competitive gaming and it shows when we PvP. We like to win and do everything it takes to win. Knowledge is just as important as skill to us when it comes to PvP and we do everything we can to ensure that we always remain competitive. In WoW The Enclave fielded multiple 2200+ arena teams and was home to numerous Gladiators. In DAoC we took control of as many territories in the frontiers as possible and did everything we could to push our faction forward towards enemy relics. If the game had PvP we took it seriously.

Being a PvP player in The Enclave means you have to keep your character, knowledge and drive current and ahead of the game.

[ PvE Philosophy ]

PvE is an important aspect of any MMORPG and we take it just as seriously as we do PvP. While we're not hardcore to the point of striving for world first progression we do strive to do the content and do it correctly. We seek out and bring people to raids who show interest and skill and never force members to PvE if they're not interested. Being successful at PvE often means your guild is successful at PvP which is why we strive to do well in both aspects.

Being a PvE player in The Enclave means that you have the time, desire, commitment and skill to meet and overcome the challenges of high end raiding.

    All of this is true. You might get yelled at if you keep disregarding orders. Follow Horrigan and you'll be k. We shall be a force to be reckoned with.
  • HorriganHorrigan Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    Nah I aint that bad.
  • I've been in The Enclave across games for almost 20 years. There is no where else like it, and you won't find a better community that drives you to do your best -- together.
  • deathwishdeathwish Member, Braver of Worlds, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    The only downside to The Enclave is not having a game we can all play together at all times. Hopefully, Ashes of Creation does well and fills that void.
  • archeyarchey Member, Pioneer, Kickstarter
    Been with The Enclave for almost a decade, played many games with them. get shit done and have fun while we do it
  • I played against The Enclave in Planetside 1 (circa 2004). I play with The Enclave ever since. Horrigan keeps the battles disciplined, but FUN! If you can't take a joke, then this may not be the right guild for you.
  • The Enclave is a guild you join up with if you want a gaming experience which takes teamwork, leadership and winning seriously and integrates that with actually having fun.
  • daithosdaithos Member, Pioneer, Kickstarter
    Best bunch of guys and girls you'll ever meet. Here's hoping Ashes brings back those Timeless Isle Tuesdays and Ashram feelings.
  • Only regret I've had being in this group was that I had not found them earlier, nearly a decade in The Enclave has not led me astray.
    Hoping to watch the plate tide rise again.
  • Horrigan and The Enclave flat out makes a game more fun to play. He is demanding, but fun at the same time. He really makes gaming interesting. On planetside, he would push a map like no other but what's the point in pushing a map with no real goals time and time again.

    Honestly, The entertainment value alone from the enclave family makes you want to stay longer and longer.

    Horrigan Is like Howard Stern. 50% of folks follow him because he is good at what he does. He takes care of his own. The other 50% follow him to see what he will do next.
  • Always remember -- even bad players can serve as Horrigan's court jesters
  • I hadn't felt gaming happiness in my life for a number of years until I played with TE in WoW.
    Thank you Horrigan for the work you put in to shape the **** in some of us into a weapon and allowing us to have fun like no other community out there.

    TE stand for Total Equality. Not really. But yeah really though.
  • I will always remember the spectacle of watching nearly two full platoons of dudes playing heavy assault in PS2 being told to pour fire on a spot or hill and audibly hearing the incoming gunfire stop.
    Good times aplenty in this group.
  • daithosdaithos Member, Pioneer, Kickstarter
    We are a very civil group who love to take the piss out of each other. Matters that can't be settled civilly are taken to the Gurubashi arena for the entertainment of your brothers.
  • We're still actively recruiting -- we have a very solid group, but looking to expand!

    A very handsome group of players that enjoy gaming together to achieve high tier level fun combined
    with strength & unity with our members.
    With that said, we also have a diverse set of players who find enjoyment in different aspects of the game, thus allowing players to focus and play how they want, we will never force someone to play the game a certain way or make them commit time out of their day if they do not wish it.
    We are traditionally roleplayers within MMO games and enjoy the aspect of truly immersing ourselves into these fantasy worlds to explore, make friends, & dominate the competition.

    Join today & make yer latin luver jealous. winky face.
  • I've played with TE since around 2007. If you want a group that excels at the games they play without the elitist attitudes that come with most turbo-nerd guilds, try us out :)
  • HorriganHorrigan Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    Smokin Doinks. Picked up some new people so far!
  • HorriganHorrigan Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    yo is this game out yet
  • HorriganHorrigan Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    Some new people just joined up! More wanted.
  • HorriganHorrigan Member, Phoenix Initiative, Royalty, Kickstarter, Alpha One
    Yo this still a game?
  • The Enclave cured my scrub disease and filled my inventory. Don't be on the wrong side of history, join The Enclave today.
  • Jokes aside, I have been a competitive PvPer in many MMOs and have even been top ranking. I was top ranking in Blade and Soul on several occasions including top 30 in 6v6 solo queue. I have seen many guilds and groups of people lead their members in various ways. What The Enclave has going on is special, especially for this day and age. We are a family and group of friends and individuals who have fun and joke around but will be serious when necessary to get any job done. We make people seethe who dare oppose their demise and laugh while doing it. Anyone is welcome to join no matter your views or way of life, and it is promoted to be open-minded and ready to work with anyone in the guild so we can be a strong, organized unit when the time comes. Tired of guild drama revolving around stupid dilemmas and forcing yourself to act a certain way just to appease your subpar guild leaders? Tired of having no connection with your guild other than raid nights because you feel like you can't talk to anyone? Join The Enclave and have fun while you win. Don't be BAD.
