    Welcome to the Strategic Insomniacs Guild!
    - Our mission: Kicking Arse! Will you join us? -

    About Us:

    SI is a gaming guild/clan which has been around for over 15 years since 2003 and started on a game called Tactics Arena Online. Since our inception, we have expanded all over the gaming world, making our presence known in a large variety of games including Guildwars, Halo, and Crossfire to name a few. Now, we have turned our sights to Forge of Empires in 2018.

    Guild Member Requirements:

    -You MUST be an active player. Players who fall inactive after 7 days will be removed from the guild unless an arrangement with leadership is made in advance.
    -Minimum Guild Expedition participation of 8 encounters per week.
    -Daily aiding & tavern visits of fellow guild mates.
    -Help build and level our members Great Buildings and Observatories.
    -Frequent goods donations towards our treasury.
    -At least 1 FP donation to our stix thread daily.
    -Participation in our many guild threads and contribute positive attitude to the overall spirit of our guild.

    How to join Strategic Insomniacs:

    We are an auto-join guild for now. Candidates who join us are then given an orientation to our guild and officially become a member. There is a probationary period of 30 days before they are considered established members and can begin applying for higher ranking positions.

    How to be promoted:

    Strategic Insomniacs is constantly looking for talented individuals and members to be promoted to higher ranking positions that provide meaningful contributions to our guild. To be promoted, established members can simply check the "Internal Jobs Posts" section in our Guild Forums located on the lower left hand side of their control panel (computer desktop only, not available on mobile) to determine if they qualify as a candidate for a position and reach out to the Guild Leader, peteyg27 (myself), or our Assistant Leader Gensmoky for more information.

    Our Founding Principles for Any Game:

    * Promote better game play.
    * Anyone can kill a noob. We must mold better opponents.
    * Promoters not whiners or runners.
    * Got to be willing to have fun.

    General Etiquette:

    1. Don't be a bully just because you can.

    2. Be gracious in both victory and defeat.
    Sportmanship is an important aspect of any member of SI. If you were defeated fair and square, please be gracious about it. Similarly, do not gloat over a defeated opponent.

    3. Boosting / Cheating is absolutely forbidden.
    SI isn't a particularly stat or ranking obsessed clan. However, we tend to have high stats/rankings because we are skilled and we earn them fairly. If you have to cheat to earn your stats or points in whatever game we are in, then you will face immediate expulsion from the clan.

    4. No spamming in the lobby or in game.
    Having fun with your friends is one thing, delibrately spamming the lobby or in game is quite another. Please be considerate of other people.

    5. Have an open mind to share and help others progress. Part of being a guild is to readily help each other experiment with different strategies and formations. If you have something which you think gives you an advantage, it would be good to share it. Also, be open to assist those players outside the guild which may request help in-game or conversely, be willing to hear their ideas as well.

    General Clan Rules

    1. Loyalty to your name and guild.
    It is discouraged to be in another guild on the same server you are in SI. This is a matter of loyalty and not having conflicting interests. SI should be the only 'true' guild for its members. For example, being in SI and being an active member of another guild, helping it grow, posting in it's forums, calling yourself a member of that guild etc. wouldn't be appropriate. However, being on SI on one server does not mean you have to be SI on all servers, though we would like you to.

    2. Promotions
    There are several levels of guild membership. For instance, there are normal members, recruiters and leaders. The titles aren't there for people to have extra status - there is a whole lot of responsibility that comes with each title, and those that have them must pull their weight. You can apply for a promotion if you meet the requirements listed above at anytime for consideration.

    3. Don't take it all too seriously.
    When it comes down to it, it is just a game. Friendships built over a game shouldn't be able to be torn down easily over something that happens in a game. The bigger things in life are more important. Real life > SI > Video Games. Bear that in mind, and you'll get along fine. We are here to have fun, and a good time. So... we don't particularly care too much about rankings and stats, though we will rise to the challenge when we need to.

    Are those points in-game point totals? If so, I'd recommend a rethink on the values. 20,000 points is achievable in days from starting a new world, it won't inhibit anyone.
