General Update, August 25

WoW

Core Empire is now 14/14N and has completed the guild achievements to unlock the dark phoenix mount. We will be starting heroics this raid week and are working towards a second raid team to prepare for 20-man mythics in Warlords. 

Looking forward to Warlords, several of our core players are planning to take several days at release to level and plan on being heavily involved during the anniversary celebration.

Minecraft

CoreEmpire is about 2 months away from a server victory in Civ. Most of our players have put Minecraft on the back-burner in exchange for more time in other games. 

EVE Online

Joining Aloyious and Eve in EVE, Sympath and Nat have created started accounts and are giving the game a go. Stay tuned for more tales of our nefarious deeds!

Other

There has been no major notable activity for some time in our other games of interest. While we do still play from time to time, much of our attention has been devoted to WoW for the time being and is unlikely to change until well after the start of the expansion.

General Update, August 3

CoreEmpire may be adding new games to it’s already extensive collection. Among the current and possible future contenders, EVE Online has grabbed our attention, and we are watching the developments regarding Archage. Nat has been busy with Team Fortress 2, and has been PvPing with Eve and Aloy in WoW.
In response to the number and nature of our expanding game interests, CoreEmpire has several new rooms in Mumble that we encourage our members to take full advantage of. 
WoW

Only one boss to go before Core Empire is officially into heroics! Great work everyone and thank you to our many PUGs who have stuck it out on long raid nights. Core Empire is officially 13/14N with only 5 weeks of normal raiding under our belts.

This coming Thursday raid we will be making a couple attempts on heroic Immerseus before clearing normals to Garrosh. If we are not well enough geared to down Garrosh by the end of our raid schedule we will likely put together a PUG group on Sunday afternoon.

Minecraft

CoreEmpire conquered UFoP during last week’s wartime, and most of their allies have crumbled since then. REDACTED will likely crumble very soon under their crushing upkeep debt. 

With the success of the war, and the completion of our third wonder, CoreEmpire is looking at finishing the game within the next two months.

General Update, July 21

WoW

Core Empire is now at 9/14 normal kills and has a full raid roster. We are beginning to work towards building a second raid team in preparation for WoD mythic raiding. 

In other news, we will be running Firelands and other Cata raids to finish up the Glory achievements.

Minecraft

CoreEmpire has now completed its second wonder, the great library. Addtionally, CE now has a total of four towns outside the capitol and has been working on shoring up defenses. Demacia now has an extensive shop area open to the public.

In other news, come wartime on Saturday it’s on with UFoP and REDACTED. Glory to the Empire!

Meet Core Empire: Mouse

Secretary, Mastermind, Generally Perfect

Mouse is Core Empire’s one-woman wonder, the creative force behind all out-of-game endeavors, such as keeping Aloyious from starving in real life, coming up with fun guild activities, or managing this website’s content. Mouse enthusiastically spends far, far too much time on Minecraft and WoW. While she turned down a leadership position in the guild, there’s no doubt that CoreEmpire wouldn’t have nice things without her. 

Favorite saying: “I made a thing!”

General Update, July 7

WoW

Core Empire is now at 4/14 normal kills, and has added a third raid night. Our current raiding schedule is Th-F-Sa at 10:00pm Eastern. 

In other news, we are looking into the possibility of making a guild playlist with music submitted by our members. If and when it is complete, links will be provided here and on facebook.

Minecraft

Core Empire began construction on the server’s first wonder and officially established Val’s town. Nat has been working on expanding our rail system. In light of recent events CE may be looking for a new civ server if current circumstances do not change.

General Update, June 29

WoW

Congrats to our raiders on our first two normal kills! Standard raid nights will now consist of normals on Fridays and Flex on Saturdays until Flex is no longer needed. 

Since this upcoming weekend is the 4th of July, raid has been cancelled on Friday, and we will run normals on Saturday instead. Raid nights will return to normal the following weekend.

Minecraft

Aloyious has successfully stabilized the Civ’s economics, and as a result we are now only a few steps away from reaching our desired government type. Also, his actions have the Civ now automatically making 60k every day with crops and trade goods. In other news Nat has completed a rails system between all of CE’s major towns and territories.

Meet Core Empire: Evellestra

Left-Hand Woman, Foodie, Independent

After a long break from World of Warcraft, Eve is back with a rediscovered love for WoW that’s almost as unhealthy as Tere’s obsession with twinkies. In between pet battling Aloy (the undefeated pokemon master), reviving your hardly-worthy ass during raids, and sending out cult love in Minecraft, Eve spends most of her time in beating her head against the wall with dailies. And while we love her very much, Aloy is concerned her battle pet menagerie (mill) will land her on Lifetime’s Hoarders: Gamer’s Edition.

Favorite saying: “Here Aloy, look at this yummy (usually red velvet cake) thing!” (And this is why we have fat jokes about Aloy)
