Storm is a gaming community first established in 2014 as a hardcore Destiny Clan (Formerly Invigorate Gaming). Our members won back to back world first raid titles in the early days of Destiny. Featured on Bungie for Crota's End and Vault of Glass Hard Mode along with features in GameInformer, Polygon, Kotaku, IGN and Gamespot, among others. We have moved on from that community and now look forward to competing at the highest level in Ashes of Creation.
Our mission in Ashes of Creation is to build a strong group of highly active members to compete for World/Server Firsts as well as castle and node sieges. Our members will take on all content that Ashes of Creation has to offer regardless of if you are interested in solely PvP or PvE we will have a spot for you as we wish to encompass all aspects AoC has to offer.
Our rank structure is designed to be able to accommodate a growing number of members. Our members will be structured in a manner that gives importance to each individual so as to establish a better connection to not just the guild but also the game itself. Even those down in the starting ranks will have the ability to have responsibility thrust upon them while in battle and in Node construction. This said we will be promoting from within to give each individual the chance to gradually make it to a higher up position they my have interest in. (Updated Graphic Coming Soon)
