General Guild Info
What is Critical Failure?
Simply, we are a group of gamers. We have our roots in EQ, EQ2, DAoC, SB, Vanguard, WAR, Rift and many more games of the past.
What are your goals?
Having fun and beating content. But definitely having fun first.
What are you good at?
Playing, mostly. Our jokes need a lot of work still. We like to research classes and builds. We are good at strategies and applying tactics. And we love to group.
Does CF raid?
It depends on the game, but if there is raid content we love to Raid . But we are by no means "hardcore". We usually try to raid a few times a week. Simply, if someone raids with us every chance he/she gets, we're more inclined to take him/her with us the next time. Because it's easier to raid with a team that knows each other well. We will most likely have different ranks for raiders and casuals, the latter being invited to raids on a need basis (e.g. we need a casual to fill up a slot).
What are your play times?
Our core team is based in Central Europe, so we usually start playing around 19:00 GMT+1 on weekdays, probably earlier on weekends.
What kind of players are you looking for?
We are looking for mature players. This does not mean that we have a minimum age requirement. It means that your behaviour should be mature. We have seen adults behave like a five year old after someone have stolen their lollipop. We are looking for people who know what they do, people who can follow simple directions and still think on their own feet. You should be more interested in mastering the content together than getting better gear. And you should understand that Real Life is more important to us than any game.
Do you PVP?
Yes. No. That depends. We loved to PVP in WAR, both in large scale battles and scenarios. But not all of us do, so we will most likely play on an European PVE server. We will most likely have one or two PVP teams in games with optional PVP.
Do you require any voice communication system?
We usually use Discord and / or Mumble. It is not a hard requirement, but coordination is way easier, so we would love you to at least listen in. Oh, and have a fair grasp of English, it is our main communication language.
What's with the name, anyways?
Well, whatever we do, we might not do it perfectly. But we try, and if we fail, we usually fail harder than anyone else. It's just such a rare thing lately ... Just kidding. We like to remind ourselves that we are the only ones responsible for our fails. And we do not take ourselves very seriously. Except when raiding.
Can I join?
If you still want? Sure. Easiest way to contact me is via Discord (#3316 - Timrum)
Cheese or Chocolate?
We love cheesy jokes and eating chocolate. And drinking beer. Mostly. Some of us ... Huh? Yeah, you've read far enough, go away, nothing more to see... What's that? No, not the straightjacket! Not again! Oh come on, guys, don't you understand fun? After all I told the audience now? AAAAAAHH ...
