Guild Meeting Notes 



Battle for Azeroth Preview: War Mode, PvP Talents, and More - Blizzard 

Battle for Azeroth is changing how PvE and PvP realms work. Starting in Patch 8.0, realms won’t have separations as PvE or PvP, but now each player can choose whether they want to engage in War Mode or not. Players in War Mode will be in a separate shard from players without it. In order to toggle War Mode, players must be in a capital city.


Mobilizing the RUIN community to contribute time, expertise resources and build the best possible teams for progression in PVP and PVE is the central guild focus. Support for current and upcoming content will be achieved through frequent news updates on the RUIN Discord, additional channels and support resources will be continually provided. 


RUIN will integrate all existing Activision Blizzard games into this new system allowing for a greatly expanded community!

  • Blizzard love existing social structures, such as goals, are want to enhance them.
  • They want to make is easier to manage connections and keep communicating
  • Current social structures include guilds, raid teams, arena teams and pre-made group finder for RBGs or Mythic+.
  • Voice Chat will be integrated into WoW as it's easy to use, high quality, uses the part and raid UI and works across game sessions.
  • WoW Communities, a new feature, will be implemented and are character specific groups that are also cross-server. You can be in multiple communities.
  • The communities feature will have a roster of members, simple role management, quick join, voice integration, auto-maintained calendar invites and text-chat history.

  • A work-in-progress user interface was shown during the panel which also had platform-wide groups shown in-game.


As the RUIN gaming community continues to expand, hosting over 10,000 active members with 5,000 registered on Discord, a need to facilitate and organize common procedure, training protocol and general information for use in multiple gaming platforms has arisen. 

RUIN traditionally hosts a variety of guild events in and out of game. Including Blizzcon, movie premiers, summer vacation retreats and other gaming and entertainment industry related conventions and events! Additional information on scheduled events can be found on the RUIN community forums.
