Hello new friends and prospective Kumpania family members!
I'm Sofa Cowpies, the Founder and Divine Bovine, or "Bovinity", of the oldest Guild on the Turalyon server and the 4th oldest active Guild on ANY United States server~! We are over 11 years old~! Heck most guilds do not last a few months, so welcome to "something very special"~! We turned 11 years old on April 6, 2017~! We made it this far by being "different" in our mission statement, we are very simply a place to "BE YOURSELF" and HAVE FUN in a totally drama free environment. We pride ourselves on really being a "Gaming Family"~!
Above, in the intro, I called you "Friends"... I do not take those words lightly. When I say hello friends and Kumpanias, I mean it. I look at each and every one of this Guild's great members as friends. Some closer than others of course, due to time known and other factors, but all of you are very important and valued. YOU make this guild, not me. It's our members that are the heart and soul of Kumpania, not any one single person or even a Cow. That's one of our big secrets...
Terve is now the Guild Master of Kumpania, the position I held proudly for 9 1/2 years, and he is leading Kumpania into a VERY bright future, with high activity levels, fun chat, NO DRAMA, no pressures to conform~! In other words he is CONTINUING the traditions that made Kumpania great with his own fantastic style of leadership that is sure to continue the huge success Kumpania has become over the years~! I now serve as his Asst. Guild Master, as he was mine for many years, so along with Yummy, Terve's wonderful Wife and Kimmy as the two other Asst. Guild Masters we have the same leadership team we have had for years, just in different roles~! So we have continued stability, longevity and continued growth... sounds too good to be true, but it's not at all~!
Here it is in a nutshell... Our promise is to treat each and every one of you with respect, compassion and understanding. I assure you that we will listen to your concerns, make note of your suggestions to improve Kumpania and take all possible steps to make your gaming time enjoyable and drama free. Again let me stress "DRAMA FREE".
Coming into Legends and continuing to this day we have had huge growth surges with many new Applicants. We hope Kumpania is your WoW "Home" for a long time to come. Most of our members have been with Kumpania for over 3 years, with many over 5 years and several over 9 years. It is our goal for you to feel comfortable, welcomed, wanted and for you to become a part of this great community of friends, traditions and history. So as prospective members you should recognize that you have a responsibility to help carry on the traditions, history and values of this great guild.
We have achieved almost 12 years as a family by being a Guild that encourages members to do their own thing. We enjoy leveling together, running 5-man dungeons and even Raiding some, but it is very common to see 25 people logged in doing 25 different things. We are NOT all things to all types of players, as a general rule we do not "Raid" hard core. We do heroics, mythics, we run tons of 5 mans, LFR's and we love to play all our toons including our lower levels alts. We do have a great group ready to hit the FLEX RAIDING and be "progressive". So YES, we do raid end game content, but in Kumpania style. No one yelling at you for a mistake, but striving to improve, progress and work as a team. So pleanty for you to be involved in, IF THAT IS YOUR CHOICE~! Play YOUR way in Kumpania, do what it is YOU enjoy...
With Legions, Kumpania has grown even more and is changing slightly to meet the needs of a new class of members while staying true to what we have been for all these years. Our MAIN FOCUS will NEVER change however, to allow folks of all play styles to have a Guild Home that is DRAMA FREE and allows them to play with zero pressure other then to have FUN~! Kumpania offers more PROGRESSION Raiding now and more CASUAL Raiding then in our past.
With Terve as our Guild Master and our Staff and Officers we are committed to keeping the guild true to the basic values and mission statement upon which Kumpania was founded and we make every effort to keep the Guild's Members informed and listen to their opinions and needs and concerns.
We are a casual, social, leveling guild that sometimes raids progressively. We are very active... So we hope you will find your place here, no matter your style of play. We are now the 4th largest guild on the Turalyon server also with over 964 toons. We also have (3) Realm "FIRSTS" and 2485 Guild Points making us Number 1 on the Turalyon server. Again, only way to get those numbers is to be VERY active.
Let's remain who we are and understand what the term Kumpania means:
"Circle of friends, traveling companions, vagabonds, family but not by blood, folks who travel together by choice for mutual benefit~!"
Kumpania~! The name is powerful and fitting. If we all try to make it true for this Guild then we have built something very special together, a refuge from real life, a place to hang on line with friends and escape into the great World of Warcraft.
If this sounds like something that you would like to be a part of, then talk to ANY Guild Officer for an invite into the NO DRAMA, NO PRESSURE world of THE LEGEND... that is.... (music builds).... KUMPANIA!
Your next step as prospective members is to go read and understand our 2018' Guild Guidelines... They are in the PUBLIC forums section of this site. After reading we have a thread where you MUST /sign stating that you have read and understand YOUR responsibilities as a member. We will do our part by keeping our responsibility to provide a fun, no pressure and DRAMA free Guild.
