Dimensional Death Year in Review and Look Ahead to 2014
« on: January 02, 2014, 03:38:25 PM »
First off, guys - happy new year! Hope no one got too plastered on NYE. =P

A Reflection of 2013
I'd like to take a moment to reflect over everything that's happened in Dimensional Death over the last year, where we've been, where we've gone and where we'd like to go in the future.

This has been a rollercoaster of a year for us, as a guild, and as a community. The leadership can pretty much all agree that it's been an interesting year.

I was gonna type a big block of text(in fact I had already, and deleted it >.> ) talking about a bunch of things, but I think I can simplify it. :)

Last year at this time, the handful of us on WoW were scraping everything we could together to keep a dying raid group together. A year and a game later, here we are as one of the best guilds on Excalibur(in my well-biased opinion. =P )

From the time FF14 launched to now, I'm still absolutely amazed at how many people we have and how much this, to me, feels like the old Dimensional Death I missed from FFXI. Lots of people, fun conversations, people getting along -- you guys are all exactly what the Dimensional Death community needed to breathe new life in a gaming community that was in danger of disappearing into obscurity.

You guys helped put Dimensional Death back on the map and for that, you're all awesome. :)



Looking Forward in 2014

I think all of us know and understand that we're never going to be a cutting edge progression guild when it comes to raiding. But that's not what makes a guild great, as I mentioned before.

Going forward into this next year, I'd like to lay out a couple goals that, as a free company. This list will be revisited, and we may keep a running goal list per patch in the sidebar, but for now, here's what the leadership has discussed so far:

2014 Goals
  • Housing - The current goal is to raise funds to buy a Medium sized house.
  • The Binding Coil of Bahamut - This comes with two sub goals:
    Clear Turn 5 with Team Aya before introduction of next set of turns
    Form more groups within our Free Company
  • Recruit! - We're not a small FC by a long shot, but there's nothing wrong with increasing our ranks! Excal's a big server and there're alot of people out there who just don't know how awesome we are yet. :) Let's change that!

Our goals lists will likely change a bit from patch to patch, but right now, these are the goals we've come up with for 2014.

Thanks to everyone's general willingness to help other people, we have very little turnover in members, and we've got a pretty good stream of new players all the time. We're always more than happy to bring new members into our ranks and make them feel welcome. You guys. You guys make Dimensional Death what it is, and help make people's play experiences better, daily.

Never forget that each and every one of you are awesome, and amazing and never let any troll or elitist tell y'all otherwise. :)

Thank you all for making this an amazing community to play in!
