Oceanic Guild Spotlight: Remnants

If you’d like your guild spotlighted, just use our contact form to let us know.

The only requirement is that you’re an active oceanic guild. Please be patient if you don’t hear back from us immediately – we will only be spotlighting a guild every week or so.

History of your guild’s name?

The guild name spawned from the ashes of Dark Dominion which dissolved when the (World of Warcraft) US-Dreadmaul server opened in April 2008. Whilst some of Dark Dominion pre-emptively transferred to Dreadmaul, some stayed on Thaurissan and the guild was broken into two. The Remnants of this fragmentation banded together, under the leadership of Discryptor, to rebuild and return to their former glory. We have since evolved from a single WoW guild to a strong, player-focused gaming community with representation across a number of titles.

What sort of guild do you intend on being?

We intend on being a multifaceted guild, but one that is part of a greater community.

What do we mean by this?

Basically put, and as mentioned before, SWTOR isn’t the first game that Remnants has been a part of. It won’t be our last, either. We are a group of like-minded people who come together to play games and enjoy each others company. We always aim high with our progression and intentions, no matter the game, and generally achieve this position.

We also have our less hardcore side, and invite any who wish to be a part of this community to come along and join us. In doing this though, you aren’t just applying to be a part of our SWTOR guild, but a part of the Remnants Gaming community.

Why did you choose to be a part of the Empire?

We have always been on the “bad guy” side. For some reason we always seem to gravitate towards it. This doesn’t mean that we will only ever have players with characters on this side of the fence, as our guild members may well create characters on the Republic’s side, but we will only actively look at maintaining the guild on the side of the Empire. It’s just the way we roll.

You have one minute to convince someone they should be in your guild – what would you say to them?

It doesn’t matter what you are looking for in a guild. You want hardcore progression? You want to cruise along and see all of the Empire’s characters in depth, taking your time with each storyline? You want a great group of people to game with? You want it? You’ll find it as a part of Remnants Gaming.

We are an adult guild, and as such the conversations can go beyond PG levels. We like a laugh as much as the next person, and as such this guild is one where you need to bring your personality along with you. In saying this, we are not interested in people who need to express the size of their epeen. We like to act as an individual team, not as a team of individuals, and as such we are not interested in having anyone who does not have the interests of this guild at heart.

What are your predictions for the first 6 months of the guild’s existence post-launch?

There is no doubt that the first 6 months of this game will see all sorts of things going on. People may not like the game, people may level quickly and get bored, people may level slowly thus perpetuating the quick levelling people’s feeling of boredom, the content of the game may not captivate those who are coming from other games.

As always, Remnants will persist through the ups and downs. We will make things work. We will be evaluating how our team is going, we will identify those who wish to progress further than just the storyline (ie. move into the raiding scene), we will accept those who are casuals, and even accept that there are those who wish to move on.

It is intangible to predict what will happen with a game that has not yet been released. But we KNOW that we will be there, we will persist, we will achieve, and we will be.


  1. Remnants are always openly accepting applicants who want to be part of our growing gaming community.

    Thank you David for giving is the opportunity to be given the spotlight during this exciting time!


  2. Remnants is a well known gaming community and a great bunch of people.

    Come join a great gaming community and come say hello on Teamspeak.

    Thank you David for this awesome spotlight for our community.


  3. Remnants have a great bunch of people to just hang out with even when you aren’t playing games. It’s one of the best communities I’ve been a part of during the past 6 years of my online gaming experience.

  4. When playing WoW, I had heard many good things about Remnants. While I never joined them in WoW, about 6 months ago my friends and I joined Remnants to play SW:ToR with them.

    I haven’t looked back since. It is an amazing gaming community, which I recommend to any and all gamers. The guys have done a great job with the website, there is Ventrilo, Teamspeak, constant chatter and joking around on the forums/chat.

    One thing that is really impressive though is the fact that Remnants does cater for all gamers, with active players in MW3, BF3, Skyrim, WoW, LoL, WoT, and many many more…

    Final thing I will say is directed to Remnants themselves, thanks for your continued hard work in keeping this community enjoyable, and also to the entire community for being as welcoming as you are.

  5. Having been part of the Remnants WoW team for 15 months I can easily vouch for a group of like minded individuals. We play as a team in game and socialise not only in game but also outside of it at times. We may love to have a bit of fun but we also thrive on progression and being one of the best. Never before have I seen such a strong gaming community. We all enjoy having a laugh but most of all we all enjoy our gaming!

    With SWOTR coming, we have many old and new Remnants gamers excited to play together. Alot of us have been playing together for a long time but we also enjoy meeting and playing with our new Remnants team memebers and look forward to meeting them come the release of some new games.

    I’ve been a part of this community for over 3 years now. I love the people, the enjoyment of gaming comes second to that. Without a doubt, there’ll be someone in Remnants that will have exactly the same interests as you, plays the same games as you (if not, everyone always is up for trying out a new one) or just simply enjoys what you have to say about the myriad of topics you pull from your head.

    For organisation, leadership and the ability to just have fun with a group of friends without fear of community dispersion, come to http://www.remnantsgaming.com

  7. Thanks for the excellent spotlight.

  8. These guys are the real deal! A solid guild with a fearless leader who isn’t afraid of commitment. He’s young, fresh out of uni with two degrees and best of all ladies he’s single. Why don’t you give him a buzz on 04xxxx and get to know the real Insurgent!

  9. Insurgent said I had to post something nice other wise he would beat me.

    But seriously Remnants are a great bunch of guys/gals and if i wasn’t rolling republic I would be joining this Empire community hands down.

  10. These folks are legit badass.


  11. I’ve been with remnants since 2007, we’ve seen some massive changes. Leadership, organisation and even a change in format or two. All in all we’ve held together well. We’ve never broken and always bonded strongly – and theres no challenge we cant collectively beat.

    We are Remnants. We are Unified. We are Legion.
