    Expectations of the Legendary Gamer Rank:
    • Will uphold and enforce the community charter and ethics at all times.
    • Are our tried and true community officers. These people not only enforce the charter, but embody it, represent it, and aim to lead by example.
    • Are a guide, mentor, and voice of wisdom for lower ranked officers and general membership.
    • Expected to be active and present in community discussions.
    • Expected to moderate all of our platforms.
    • Expected to follow upcoming games and current active chapters.
    • Expected to attend all community meetings.
    • Expected to check officer forums on a weekly basis and give input.
    Authority of the Legendary Gamer Rank:

    How to Resign from the Legendary Gamer Rank:

    • If a LG disappears or becomes inactive (i.e., not checking the officer forums, no presence on Discord or Mumble) for an extended period of time the Mythic Gamer(s) will attempt to contact them. If no response is given the LG will lose their rank.
    • Tenacious recognizes that ‘Retired’ or ‘Inactive’ Legendary Gamers deserve to be honored and they will earn an ‘Honored Legendary Gamer’ role in its place.
    • It is impossible for anyone to continue putting in the same amount of work infinitely… It is expected that people will need to step away from their Tenacious duties, for a multitude of reasons. Tenacious will always understand that real life needs to come first and we will always value the work put in in the past.
    • If an Honored Legendary Gamer wants their leadership responsibilities back and can commit to the expectations listed above they will be reinstated.

      Are members who have been registered on our website for over 3 years. Thanks for sticking around!

      Are our celebrated members who have done something so great we just had to give them a shout out for it!

      Are Zawr and Falfouran. They are the two founders of our gaming community. They’ve chosen the title ‘LOREMASTER’ as they are the holders of the stories of the past. They started Tenacious Gamers in 2009 as a guild for their friends in AION. They built this place from nothing and decided to share it with the rest of us, because of this we all owe them thanks.

    The only member with this title is Paradigm, who was our Mythic Gamer from 2016 - 2018. Paradigm led us thru many games and many changes in the gaming world. As far as most of us are concerned, he is the embodiment of Tenacious itself. This title is for him; for us to honor him, to recognize the ungodly amount of time and heart he's put into our community, and as a very small way of saying thank you.


    cooltext296876529886394.png
    Are now inactive Legendary Gamers who no longer have the time to commit to Tenacious but have laid the tracks and started the traditions for the rest of us to continue today. Thank you so much for everything you've done. We will honor you always.

    Is a title given to the 137 members who have been here since the very first year Tenacious was born! Thank you for starting something so amazing.
