March 2016 marks the seventh anniversary since Cyrus was officially established in Warhammer Online. Over the years we have played several MMO games, each time devoting our complete attention to the game we are playing at that time. This is just how we approach our MMO gaming - we focus on one thing, master it, and become the best we can possibly become.
This has been great for members who are enjoying the game we are currently playing, and who are still committed to making progress. However it also had the drawback that when a member needed a break from that game, or became tired of it altogether, it has been difficult for them to remain part of our community while everyone else is so focused on something they no longer wish to participate in.
When members have left our guild, it has almost always been because they no longer wish to play the game we are in, and not because they wish to leave the community itself. And that is why we are introducing Club Cyrus - a casual-friendly way to play a variety of games together!
Being a member of Cyrus has traditionally required a regular commitment with regards to availability and attendance, and will obviously continue to do so with our MMO gaming. However with Club Cyrus, we will be organising casual gaming nights in a variety of non-MMO games that we can play together just for the fun of it. There will be no need for regular commitments (although advanced signups will still be required to reserve private server slots and organise teams), and you can join in on whichever games or nights suit you.
This will become a new regular feature for Cyrus, and will continue even when we are playing MMOs again (when Camelot Unchained is launched). We all need a break from MMOs at times, and this will provide a good platform to let off some steam and renew our gaming energies rather than get burned out doing the same thing night in night out. Of course this will be in addition to anything we organise in MMOs, not instead of - we wont be watering down our focus on achieving greatness again where it really counts!
Club Cyrus is open to anyone who has been a member of Cyrus Gaming, past or present. We are not currently recruiting for this section of the guild - all new guild applications will be MMO-specific. If you would like to participate then all you need to do is sign up for any event that interests you. It's that simple!
We hope this brings something new to Cyrus Gaming, and acts as a way to renew and continue some of the friendships we have made during our journey in MMO's so far.
When organising which games we will play as part of Club Cyrus, we will announce 3 primary games that will be scheduled the most frequently, and then maintain a list of additional supported games that we will schedule less often. We will do this so that our members know which games are worth buying and they'll get a lot of use from, and which games may not be played so often and therefore they may wish to skip.
The following games are currently considered our 3 primary games:
Rocket League is a mix of rocket-boosted murder vehicles ramming a giant ball (and each other) around a giant football arena in the hope of scoring spectacular goals. Supporting 2v2, 3v3 and 4v4 players, we organise many fun guild nights and a league.
The Division is a beautiful-looking 3rd person cover-based shooter that has undergone constant improvements since its launch. We are currently hunting commendation achievements while we await The Division 2, which launches in March 2019.
PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS is a last-man-standing shooter being developed with community feedback. Players must fight to locate weapons and supplies in a massive 8x8 km island to be the lone survivor. This is BATTLE ROYALE.
- Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
- Dead by Daylight
- Destiny 2
- Ghost Recon: Wildlands
- Golf with your Friends
- Shadow Warrior 2
There are a few things you should keep in mind with regards to Club Cyrus, as this is not run in the same way that the main MMO guild is:
Guild Events start at 19:30 UK time, and finish before 23:00.
The above schedule is provisional only, and will be finalised before launch.
We typically schedule guild events 3 or 4 nights per week, and we include the occasional 'alarm clock raid' if required!
