Vanguard was formed in 1997 by a group of high school friends who had a passion for video games. In Ultima Online we wore the guild name Crimson and roamed Britannia with murderous intent. In Tribes, our clan tags were GZ and [!]. Back then we played on the HomeLAN Federation Shifter servers and were featured in early live streaming tournaments.
|In 2003, Vanguard became our official guild name. We made our mark as a fearsome Rebel guild on Star Wars Galaxies West Coast Flurry server. We dominated the Pre-CU PvP scene, had the server’s first unlocked Jedi characters, and built our prosperous city of Mos V on Tatooine near the highly farmed Tusken Raider spawn.|
|On November 24th, 2004, Vanguard secured itself as the first Horde guild formed on Ner'zhul. Our early achievements in Vanilla WoW included being one of the first 40 man raiding guilds to successfully clear Molten Core and down Onyxia. Our dedication and progression in PvE and PvP on Ner'zhul made Vanguard a recognized Horde guild.|
|On December 20th, 2011, Vanguard continued gaming together in Star Wars The Old Republic. Starting on Daragon Trail we quickly formed a talented raid progression team. We ultimately completed all difficulties of 8-man and 16-man 1.3 content on The Bastion server - our home today.|
Through our history together we've learned a guild isn't ultimately defined by its achievements and notoriety, but through the friendships and bonds created in the virtual worlds we enjoy.
