<Filthy Casuals> Something new and fun and not so serious.

Recommended Posts

This is literally the first image that comes up when you Google "filthy casuals".


Hey Crowfall community, my name is Jaffinator. I am, as of today, putting my flag in the ground and building a guild for Crowfall. Why do I say "my" flag? Because I am the one and only member of <Filthy Casuals>, a gaming destination for people that don't take their gaming too seriously. I want to change that... with you.

Ask yourself a couple questions:

  • Do you find yourself browsing the forums looking at outfits that provide insane levels of structure that make you feel like you have multiple bosses in a game that you are paying for, not being paid for?
  • Do you find the names of some groups (Legion of Doom; Vanguard of Darkness; Swift Death; Sentinel Corps; Indominus Rex) a little... bland?
  • Do you have a real life job, spouse, children (I'm sorry) or other commitments that prohibit you from meeting regular gaming activity "obligations"?
  • Do you like to play games for fun?
  • Do you like to laugh?
  • Do you hate drama?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you're probably a good fit for what I'm trying to put together. I learned during my on-again, off-again Eve Online tenure that games can be very dramatic and start to feel like second jobs. Hierarchy, Participation (PAP) Links, people taking things personally, alarm-clocking to shoot Russians in the dead of night... it's fun for six months, but it starts to get old, and it accelerates burnout for certain people. Those people are the ones I want.

The group will be founded on a few core tenets:

  • We will play the game to have fun.
  • We will play the game the way we want to play it.
  • There will be no strict hierarchy, and everyone will have a say and be heard (so long as they accept me as their God-King... #kissthering).
  • We will not be jerks, at least not to each other.
  • We will not accept drama.

That's it. Them's the rules. No activity requirements, ever. No age requirements. No "trial periods". Sure, we would prefer members have microphones to join in on voice comm shenanigans and drinking games, but even that's not for everyone. Look, this is still a game, after all, and the whole "honor, family, duty" approach to gaming has always rubbed me the wrong way. I don't want to take my games so seriously that I stop having fun. That sucks.

Additionally, we'll try other games from time to time, because why not? If you have a community of people you enjoy playing with, it only makes sense to try other things away from your primary game as a way to "take a mental break" and have some fun. Personally, I play Dota 2, Planetside 2 and I'm getting into Elite: Dangerous.

"Okay, this is all good and well, but who the hell are you?"

Good question. I've been around the gaming block for a bit, so I'll just point out some stuff I've done/currently do:

  • Battlefield 2 - "Commander" role for competitive LAN team
  • World of Warcraft - Beta Tested original and most expansions, led raids and a small guild of friends
  • Planetside 2 - OG platoon and outfit leader with a number of successful continent caps in the early days
  • Eve Online - Led fleets of 15 - 250+ in-game, coordinated with thousands of players, contributed to Military Directorate for enormous alliance as a theorycrafter, formed fun corporation not unlike this

So there you have it. The why, the how and the who. If this strikes your fancy, feel free to leave a response or shoot me a PM. I'm working on figuring out the next steps (Steam Group, Enjin site etc.), but should have some of that together fairly shortly. If you want to get in on the ground floor of something a little different, this is your chance. Thanks for checking it out.

Sounds kinda awesome. But until we get into at least alpha I wont know if I like any of you....or you just might plain suck lol

 

At any rate I'm going to put you on my "hopeful" list of guilds come alpha. What my sway me over a little more is if I can have the rank of 2 Star Captain Master Chief?

 

Keep up the cool! Great guild name  B)

You can have whatever title your heart desires or your imagination conjures. Seriously.

 

Also, I'm hoping to get people together to play other games ahead of the whole Crowfall experiment so we know who actually does suck so we can razz them until they quit.

 

Jokes. But seriously.

YOU DID IT

 

 

They're so beautiful, but I'm an American who does not believe in fascism or socialism, so only freedom fries will be allowed in. Unless they let us recruit/convert from Eurotrash, then we will totally accept Europeens. I'm assuming servers are split, though. :(

We also have a Steam group you can join: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/filthycasualscrowfall
