SWG Naritus 2006
The two years following NGE in SWG found a late night mix of Japanese and other late night players PvPing together in Restuss and doing Heroics together. With no actual guild holding us together we were held together by our play time, love of PvP and the tiny buff house near Restuss we all contributed to. Finally in Early 2007 the group decided to move to Bria for the PvP; at the time Bria was arguably the most active server and had the most activity in Restuss.
Bria 2007 to 2010
As we moved to Bria we formed our guild, Axis Katana. Katana is a type of Japanese sword and the name of the original Japanese SWG server some of our core members at the time had played on. Axis comes from Axis and Allies, but references a Japanese anime show about Axis and Allies in WW2.
During our first year on Bria we were repeatedly called HAXIS and accused of hacking due to our prowess in PvP. Due to our abilities in PvP and running one of the best buff houses in the game our ranks expanded to one of the largest guilds on the server. However the declining activity on Bria lead the guild to move servers to Flurry in 2010.
Flurry 2010 to 2011
As with most guild server moves our ranks dwindled down to core members our first few months on Flurry. However our organization skills and family type atmosphere attracted former and new players to the guild. Six months after moving to Flurry we were the second largest guild on the server a few months later we were the largest guild on the server and perhaps even the entire game. We were so large non active alts were put in another guild and toons that had not logged in for 15 days had to be removed to make room for new members. For a few months towards the end of SWG we had twice as many GCW Officers listed on active frame than any other guild, 130 plus usually.
SWTOR and STO 2011 to 2013
From December 2011 till the summer of 2013 the guild split time in Star Trek Online and SWTOR. Ultimately TOR was mostly hype, the stories are great but in the end it was nothing close to the sandbox feel SWG had. Star Trek Online is fun for a true Trek fan but was really not build right from the start. It has got a lot better but ultimately the starbase grinding killed the guilds interest in the game.
Guild Wars 2 2013
In the late summer of 2013 the guild found interest in Guild Wars 2, several members had been playing off and on since launch and the World against World is the closest felling to a good night in Restuss or going further back an Anchorhead to Mos Eisley PvP night.
We still maintain our SWTOR and STO guild/fleets but not much activity as we have moved on to GW2. The guild will most likely get involved with Project SWG once the new core is deployed and decently playable.
Current activity in the guild is mostly from our North American members but we welcome people from anywhere to join us. The guild was started on the idea that we are here to have fun and enjoy the game. We strive to be good at what we do but ultimately the guild is about comradery and enjoying the game.
