A HOME FOR CHRISTIAN WORLD PVP ENTHUSIASTS

Competitive | Friendly | Christ-Centered | Fun

A PLACE FOR COMPETITIVE WORLD PVP LOVERS

Christians are who we are.  But gaming is what we do!  In FIRE, our focuses have refined over the years, and we are currently heavily focused primarily on World vs World team PvP.  Every single day, we have an assortment of players on the battlefield, either capturing objectives as a small group together, supporting other zergs in massive battles, or engage in small, breathtaking small-group skirmishes! We have an assortment of World Versus World activities, and we approach World Versus World from a newbie-sensitive perspective.  Our veteran players work together to teach and train strong tactics and good class builds so that new players to the game mode can adapt and grow in World Versus World!

Our Activities

A PLACE FOR A WHOLESOME ENVIRONMENT

It can be challenging to be a Christian in this world.  Everywhere we go, we are immersed in environments that carry a much different moral standard than we carry as Christians.  FIRE prides itself on providing an in-game home where we can gather together under a Christian worldview and grow together in our faith. We carry a conduct system that we ask everyone to adhere to, that is based upon Biblical principles. Houses are built on a strong foundation, and these Biblical principles form the foundation for the environment that FIRE has had for the past 10 years we have existed. We hold these standards in all forms of game-related communications.

Our Standards

A PLACE WITH A FIRM FOUNDATION

Every long-lasting structure to have ever survived the rugged weather and years has one commonality: a strong foundation. It is because of our foundation in the Word of God that Chariot Of Fire has prospered over the years in Guild Wars 2.

The Word of God serves as the core of our lives. With the Holy Spirit’s guidance, our entire life can be mapped through the pages of the Scriptures, and He uses its lessons to grow us. At the core of the Scriptures are a set of teachings that are essential to understanding, as they describe the very nature and ultimate plan of our Father.

OUR ACTIVITIES

CURRENT WVW STATUS

Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel – Phillipians 1:27 NASB

Our Vision

Chariot of Fire is a Christ-centered, family-friendly, fellowship-oriented, community-minded guild, which is focused on building and strengthening relationships through group WvW activities and cooperative, fun, competitive gameplay.

“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” – Proverbs 29:18 KJV

OUR BELIEFS

Rightly Divide the Word of Truth

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15
English Standard Version

“All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness..” – 2 Timothy 3:16 KJV

OUR STANDARDS

WHO WE INVITE

Chariot of Fire has a very specific focus on maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere with like-minded individuals. Our officer team use a variety of criteria to in our evaluations of each applicant, in order to ensure that by God’s grace, we select quality members that are similarly-minded with our membership. For this reason, we primarily recruit and accept applications for:

Those that have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are the primary members within the guild, as we cater to an environment where this group of similarly-minded people thrive.
Others that do not necessarily consider themselves Christian but are seeking a family-friendly environment can also thrive in our type of community.

Our officer team selects members that meet cohesive criteria that promotes family-oriented gameplay without strife and needless debate. We base our selection on applicants that express the following qualities:

We are a family-friendly organization.  We strive for clean conversations and wholesome conduct, representing Jesus in our actions and words daily.
Why join a Christian guild if not even remotely intrigued by the Christian influence it brings?  Those that are are open-minded will thrive here.  This is an environment where Biblical topics can arise at any time, and every member needs to understand that this is the norm for a Christian group.
Why join a Christian guild if one’s own faith background contradicts the faith of the group he is involved with?  Unity is important, and while not everyone may believe in the same doctrines as each other, having a background that is a complete antithesis to Christianity will only breed disunity, corruption, and needless debate.

OUR PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES

Chariot of Fire has multiple avenues of staying connected that we use to cohesively build our community, such as Discord and Teamspeak. We desire our members to participate with each other in a more engaging manner than just in-game, as our focus is to build a long-lasting community that extends beyond the log-in screen of the game. For this reason, we have the following participation guidelines:

Playing with multiple guilds is allowed and even encouraged.  We just ask that you vary your participation across all your guilds; we wish FIRE to never become a guild you never actively engage with.

50% representation is preferred in order to maintain a suitable guild roster activity level. However, this is a request, not a requirement.

When playing, members will be social in their participation, collaboration, and communication. Members are encouraged to use other community participation methods, such as Teamspeak and Discord, in order to keep engaged with the guild community.

Inactive members are subject to removal from the guild after 3 months of inactivity, gauged by guild roster last-login. The officer team has full authority to determine if any inactive member should be considered under Protected status based upon their past participation levels. Any member that knows they will not be able to play for a lengthy period of time can simply notify the officer team to avoid inactivity pruning.

Officers monitor guild participation and have full authority to remove lesser-participating members from the guild at their discretion.

Our activity levels are gauged primarily through in-game activity, but also looked at secondarily through these other activity avenues. Lesser activity in-game, but higher levels of activity on our website can still build our community, and we welcome that in times of needed decreased play time.

OUR CONDUCT STANDARDS

Chariot of Fire holds to Biblically based standards of conduct. Conduct includes voice conversation, chat conversation, interactions with others, in-game actions, cheating, hacking, or anything Guild Wars 2 related activity. Additionally, at no time should any member feel uncomfortable in the guild, regardless of age, sex, nationality, color, or faith background. We are a family-friendly group, and for this reason, we have the following standards:

Members will refrain from cursing and sexual innuendos.

We ask that members refrain from highly aggressive, disrespectful, and antagonistic behaviour. We also ask that members refrain from argumentative debates, especially over theology and politics. Having a conversation about politics or theology is allowed, but if the conversation starts to get aggressive, then it is important to be responsible and back down.

Members will refrain from glitching, hacking, buying gold, or anything else deemed inappropriate by ArenaNet in their EULA. Using 3rd party add-ons to the game is acceptable as ArenaNet has chosen to allow these “at your own risk”.

We realize that not every member is at the same place spiritually; the occasional slip may happen. However, we still need to make every attempt to keep Christ-centered standards in order to maintain a family-friendly gaming environment. We have young children that play with us, and we need to ensure they are free from improper conduct. Our officer team has full authority to make executive decisions based upon conduct in the guild, which can range from a warning discussion to a complete guild membership removal.

So he shepherded them according to the integrity of his heart, and guided them with his skillful hands. – Psalms 78:72 NASB

OUR LEADERSHIP

XIVOR

GUILD LEADER

A big meanie who’s hard on the outside and oddly squishy on the inside. Talks too much. Likes long walks off of cliff faces, building flame rams miles away from a gate, and DA BIG DPS. Seems like he has about 4584369326967890734890 kids. Has an identity complex between LOUD, and AGGRESSIVE, and gentle and emotional. Maybe bi-polar.

Time-zone location: North America – Eastern

ALERON

SENIOR (CITIZEN) OFFICER

Does three things: AFK, farm flax, or WvW; mainly farms flax. According to many in the guild, he’s over a hundred years old but acts like he’s in his fifties (the jury is still out on what his true age is). His priorities in-game are, in order of importance, farming flax nodes, farming WvW nodes, and farming Home Instance nodes. Oh, and guild applications.

Time zone location: North America – Mountain

AZURENE

OFFICER

Loudest introvert one will ever hear. Writes fan-fiction about guild members as a hobby. Will likely write more fan-fiction about the guild in days to come. Might even write fan-fiction about you. Writes too much, even when not writing at all.  Spams all guild chat mediums with secret language only special people can understand. Anti-meta.

Time zone location: North America – Pacific

ODID

OFFICER

Calm, cool, collected, and not a popcicle. But we think he likes popsicles. He is a man of few words and many Charr. Many, many, many Charr. Many, many, many, many, many, many Charr. It’s not a problem. It’s not a disease. Nope, not at all. The game allows this.

Time-zone location: North America – Eastern

COMPLEX

OFFICER (STILL ON VACATION)

LOVES jumping puzzles and all things PvE; despises WvW. Just ask him how much and he’ll tell you. Enjoys memes and anime and thanking Aleron for everything. 10% Memes, 10% Anime, 10% water. Can only count up to ten. But he has only done so…ten times.

Time-zone location: North America – Eastern
