After 6 years of closely following development and playing at every phase we are very excited about the launch and really happy to have spent this time in Crowfall. It has been a hell of a ride filled with friends and enemies but at the end of the day filled with awesome people that together we have helped shape Crowfall into what it is today. 
Thank you All for that!

Let the Launch Crows Fly!

 

 

KDS is a guild founded in 2003 in Star Wars Galaxies on the Chimaera server, where it was the flag holder for the empire up until the release of the CU. We have consistently followed every AAA MMO available since, ensuring that with each and every game we gain knowledge and experience to bring into the next.
 
Our members are from all over the world, however our main core player base is from Europe. Diversity is what makes our community great with about 1000 members strong.
 
Over the years three things have defined us:
 
1. We are a driving force for our servers community and the games we play:
 
Be it by being hired to kill the Titan in FFXIV, our PvP experience, or for most advanced city on the EU server in DFUW.
 
2. We LOVE our PVP:
 
We cover small scale assaults, ambush tactics as well as the large scale, especially the latter with great proficiency.
 
3. We respect and involve everyone through our actions and our Code of Conduct:
 
Over the years KDS has learnt to become a leading community with a large player base and many diverse and amazing members. We encourage people to shine, create events and move up the ranks. If you want an opportunity to prove you can lead PVP, or create a better structure you have that opportunity.  
 
The Most Important goal of KDS is: To Have Fun and provide fun for it's members.
 
In any competitive environment, even more so within a PVP Orientated MMO, winning engagements and gaining a strong foothold on your server is a huge boost for moral and enjoyment. In order to ensure we have the ability to offer this to our alliance and community we need disciplined, eager members that strive to become unified in their approach to PvP. DISCIPLINE is a core value of KDS!
 
____________________________________________
 
We envision KDS as a Semi RP Military Dictatorship. What does this mean for you?
 
We have a relaxed atmosphere, however we don’t take aggressive or rude nature lightly. 
 
When it comes to operations be it PvE or PvP, we shift gear, and the military style kicks in. This ranges from:
1. Quiet "Voice Comms" (TS).
2. Follow orders without question.
3. When relaying important information regarding the immediate battle do it with maximum information content and minimum amount of words.
 
____________________________________________
 
Do you expect your members to follow orders blindly and never ask a question?
 
During the actual Operations - Yes – Orders are orders. Have you tried running 4 platoons, 8 squads and listening to 4-5 different teamspeak channels at once? It’s hard work! We try to keep that relaxed environment as much as possible but we do require members to follow the Commander (even if he does lead you off a cliff.. Yes Prom I'm looking at you :P)
 
At the end of the Operation - everything is on the table and we discuss what went well but especially what went wrong. We do it in TS or on forums, in public or in private. This is to gain knowledge and experience. 


Bottom line: Nobody is perfect, we all make mistakes but most importantly we all learn and train to get better. 
 
____________________________________________
 
Do we expect you to know all that and be KDS Battle Ready from the get go?
 
Of course not. When you join a new guild it takes time to get to know calls made by the Commander, how to work as a unified squad or platoon and to blend in with your surroundings. We appreciate that MMO players are from all walks of life and therefore incorporate our training methods to ensure we get the best out of everyone.
____________________________________________
 
Does this mean that KDS is purely a PvP guild?
 
Not by a long shot. We have all kinds of members ranging from families, students, to your workaholics, you name it we have it! However we do understand that real life comes first.
 
In order to preserve our wonderful community we do have a membership required of 18 years of age in KDS. We love our PVP (if you cannot tell by now) and as such would like to state that we are looking for like-minded members, if you detest PVP of any sort then KDS will not be for you.
 
 ____________________________________________

Do you offer opportunities to advance?
 
KDS is a meritocracy. If you show initiative and "make things happen" then you can and will quickly climb up the ranks. In  KDS we are always on the lookout for people willing to provide content for others.
 
____________________________________________
 
How do you play the numbers game?
 
Another core value of KDS is STRUCTURE. We have extensive experience (since 2003) on structuring the KDS Army (PvP player base) and the Civil Corp (Crafters, Traders, Gatherers).
We use a Squad System: Squad < Platoon < Company < KDS Army. This squad system is governed by High Command and/or game officers. This is a flexible system that we continuously adjust to fit the needs of the guild as it’s members.
 
__________________________________________
 
What's with the Dictatorship? Do you ask members to clean the latrines?
 
As a community we listen to every single member and we take pride in doing so. This simply means that the end decision process is done at the officer level. This allows for a fast decision making process through our High Command and officers and allows you to enjoy your game play without the fuss of political debates.
 
KDS Officers are here to serve the members by providing content and solving issue. Enforcing our Code of Conduct is everyone's job, from the newest Private to the General.
 
__________________________________________
 
TLDR version:
 
- Semi RP Meritocratic Military Dictatorship 
 
- Core values: Fun, Discipline, Structure

I signed up as a recruit for KDS a little over a week ago and I'm pleased I did.

Friendly, welcoming and informative. This is an organised military style guild that hasn't lost sight of the fact we're playing a game to have fun! With a very active voice comms I have enjoyed coordinated guild PvP on several occasions and I have been incorporated in to longer term plans for the guild in game. Within such a short time feel I belong to a great community.

Thanks for accepting my application.

So here's my Crowfall story. I've always loved PVP based MMOs, so buying Crowfall wasn't really much of a choice :D. Somehow I managed to join a guild with a bunch of cool people, which sadly after a few years fell apart. Fortunately KDS were our allies and so I joined. I've been with KDS for like half a year and it's been quite a ride. The best things about this guild are: 1) nobody forces you to play more, you're free to play exactly as much as you want and can 2) discipline - I'm not talking about calling officers sir, what I mean is that during combat useless chatter (whining about CC or dying) is nonexistent 3) friendly atmosphere - again nobody forces you to do anything you don't want 4) shared resources

We are open for recruitment again.

We don't need the player base but we want to serve as a platform to keep more people into the game.

So if you are a group of players that wants to get fastest access to game knowledge we are open for that and you can either get the info or even join us as players or allies until you get your footing and we will gladly shed blood with or against you later.

Greetings crows,
Finally found the time to clean that roster and keep actives and alts. I'm sure I've made some mistakes and if that's the case please reapply and PM on discord for acceptance.

Recruitment wise:
If you have already applied to KDS on our website and you are still interested please PM in Discord and I'll take a look at your application.

This week we will open up recruitment for 10 slots. First come first served but equally quality of application.
