  • Dark Ops – Sith Empire

Dark Ops logoHello 2014! Community Checkpoint is back after the holiday break. This week we take a look at the guild Dark Ops. We learn how this 400+ guild got its start in Star Wars Galaxies and despite differences in gameplay and years in between that game and Star Wars: The Old Republic they managed to stay together. We will find out where they make their home, server wise, in SWTOR and how the game has been treating this band of dedicated Star Wars gamers.

Time to find out more about Dark Ops after the Jump…

  • League of Xtraordinary Slackers

“You’re a slacker. You remind me of your father when he went here. He was a slacker, too.”

Now, when Mr. Strickland used this line, in the movie Back to the Future (1985), to the character Marty McFly, it was meant to put him down. However, today’s guild would simply take the tardy slip from Mr. Strickland and smile wearing the term as a badge of honor. What guild is that, why none other than the League of Xtraordinary Slackers. We will see how these slackers formed a guild and even what it means to “Slack Together.”

Relax a bit as we meet the League of Xtraordinary Slackers after the Jump…

  • Order 65 guild – Galactic Republic

Whether it is character creation or guild creation, sometimes the hardest part is coming up with a good name. Finally, you come up with one, only to find someone else has it, but with trial and error you finally get a name. Then along come server mergers and you and your guild move only to find out that on the new server someone already has that guild name. Frustrating, as all that is this week’s guild Order 65 had to go through a similar situation. As we talk to their GM, Gumball, we learn how they took it all in stride and remained focused on having fun, playing SWTOR.

Let’s meet Gumball & learn more about the guild Order 65 after the Jump…

  • Intrepid – Galactic Republic

We are happy to welcome the guild Intrepid to this week’s Community Checkpoint. They are another guild focusing on 16-man Operations in SWTOR. However, Intrepid tends to really push the envelope as far as endgame progression. Although it is pretty incredible to accomplish server firsts in doing certain bosses or entire Ops, Intrepid happens to be a guild that has the distinction for being only the second guild in the entire world to complete the Nightmare mode for the Scum & Villainy Operation!

We’ll learn about Intrepid & what it takes to raid on this level after the Jump…

  • Guardians of Peace & Justice/The Dark Times

It has been busy this past week…Game Update 2.3 went live, introduction of the Tauntaun animal mounts, the Chicago Community Cantina, Chicago Comic-Con, and on top of that, I got to meet another great guild. This week we find out all about the multi-faction guild named after the iconic line from Obi wan Kenobi in Star Wars Episode IV. Having guild names tied to a movie line in Star Wars would be unique itself, but this multi-faction guild has another impressive feat to their resume. They managed to organize all of this in a mere ten weeks! We had a peaceful cross-faction chat with Tank from the Republic faction of the guild along with No-La from the Empire faction and learned more about the Guardians of Peace & Justice/The Dark Times.

Get ready to meet Tank & No-La after the Jump…
