Ladies and gentlemen it is time! Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood is upon us! With less than 24 hours until the servers go live, Excelcius Gaming is excited to be roaring firstfold into the fray! Grab your best weapons and armour, load up on your potions and food! Let's see where our adventure takes us!
It's been nearly 4 years when Excelcius was formed and it is nearly 10 years that the founders of Excelcius met each other. In the 4 years we have been in FFXIV we have built a community of players and friends some have been with us from the beginning and we have met allot of great people along the way. With the release of Storm Blood we write the next chapter in the Excelcius story, we wait for the adventure that will unfold in Storm Blood as well as excitement with new classes and new skills. I hope we grow Excelcius more in the up coming months and years to come with the aim to keep quality player base as well as friendships that last.
As with any expansion we're hoping to set up some little fun events for our members. So let's have a look shall we?
9am: Discord Chat and general pre-server-activation schenanigans
10AM: SERVERS UP LADS AND LADIES
4PM: BY this time we should have many members at/near the first primal fight. Let's get some 8 man FC parties to get people past these roadblocks.
7pm: Guild Photo! Get some submissions in using the exg_art_gallery section on our Discord!
All times are in BST.
If anyone else has any ideas or suggestions feel free to drop them onto an officer/elder and we will take them on board :)
we wish everyone a happy (and hopefully crash free) launch!
As members of Excelcius we do not thrive to play mediocre at best. When we do something, we seek to give it our all. Which can range from performing in endgame raiding, seeking to become the wealthiest player dominating auction houses or leading the charts in multiplayer titles. We will however never expect our members, our friends, to sacrifice their real life duties and priorities over our gaming goals.
Lastly, we are always looking for more like-minded players who would wish to join our community. If you are looking for the same thing, do not hesitate to apply to Excelcius!
