    Hi! I'm Whyte, and I'm new here. I've never put very much time into Maplestory, and I'm not well known in almost any community. That said, I'm aspiring to create the ultimate elite guild - from day 1.

    What I do lack in MS1 experience, I feel that I more than make up for that with dedication. Some of my gaming accolades include top 0.1% experience in large competitive games such as Hearthstone and League of Legends, and I am more than prepared to focus all of my attention on MS2 upon release. As a result, I've decided to found Oryx. Joining me are two close friends, Ignneel and Brickmasta, who have also displayed a great amount of preparation and dedication for the task at hand. Together we've drawn up some temporary recruitment guidelines. These are not cut in stone, and we will still look through every application.

    Less about me, more about the guild.

    Requirements include:
    1. A prior gaming 'resume' - proof that you are a dedicated, successful gamer. This doesn't need to be from any specific game, just list your achievements and we'll take it from there.
    2. (Upon release, ) A minimum of 50 hrs active per week. This number is ridiculous. We know. That's the point.
    3. Fluency in English, as that will be the main language of communication. Appended to this point, a working microphone is not required, but is a definite plus.
    4. Skype and Teamspeak3 - Our VoIPs of choice. Skype to be used for written correspondence, and teamspeak for verbal communication. We are currently in the process of purchasing a dedicated, private TS3 server.
    5. Integrity - We will not tolerate drama/breaking ToS/hacking/scamming/etc. in any capacity.
    6. There is not a minimum age requirement, but we are looking for maturity.
    If you are interested in beginning the application process, please send a communication to me through Tria. There is no template, but try to address all the point above, and express your personality!

    I understand that our requirements are daunting, and that this guild isn't for everyone. If you feel like you belong in what aspires to be one of the definitive top guilds of GMS, I hope to hear from you soon!

    As a final footnote, this thread will be updated extensively over the coming months. If you do apply, I would suggest bookmarking the link or posting below.

    Thanks for reading,

    Whyte

    EDIT #1: Guild has been created, and invites sent to applicants. Please feel free to continue to apply!

    Zelkova Edit:
    This guild has changed ownership and is no longer named Oryx. I am closing this thread for that reason.

    You mentioned GMS but not KMS. Will this guild be starting up on KMS on 4/30/15 with the final test?

    I wasn't admitted to the final CBT, so for now I'm going to have to pass.

    I will, however, be using information gathered to start producing guild related content, when I hit 50 posts/make the guild on Tria lol

    Is Skype really ever a good idea? Anyhow, good luck dodo. I could definitely spend 50h/week but I'm far too lazy for that.

    Skype sucks, don't get me wrong, but it's easy to use/manage/set up.

    I almost don't want to join this guild just because there are actually people who enjoy ROTMG in 2015

    Is your choice for the name Oryx in any way related to the book Oryx and Crake?

    The time factor is really just there to look for dedication - if you think you can keep up on end-game content with less time, I'd be more than happy to have you aboard!
