First off, thank you for taking your time to visit this thread! The below post contains all of the relevant information regarding our community, its values and its goals, which I hope will interest you in icU° Gaming.
Recruiting: Open, we are always looking for more members!
Region: Europe (in addition to members in North America and the rest of the world)
Age requirement: 16
Steam group: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/icu-gaming
We use TeamSpeak 3! The address is only available to members of icU° Gaming for security purposes.
A Brief Introduction
icU° Gaming is a Europe based gaming community with over one thousand members worldwide. It is active as a guild or a clan in a variety of games such as Global Agenda, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars, Battlefield 3 and Modern Warfare 3 as well as operating a dedicated Minecraft server!
Some of our future endeavors include Guild Wars 2 and now Star Trek Online!
As mentioned previously, we operate in a wide variety of games. To say the least, these are the games that we are the most active in or the games with the most potential for a guild or a clan.
While we expect nothing of our members, we do ask of some commitment to the game at group events or competitive guild vs. guild matches. We will favor the most active and committed players over the skilled yet unreliable ones. However do not feel distressed if you have a lot going on in your life, we understand! Everyone has some important and time-consuming event at some point in their lives! 24/7 commitment is not asked for unlike with some communities out there!
With that being said, we also enjoy many current games which are group-orientated such as Team Fortress 2, Dungeon Defenders and League of Legends. These games are nearly always impromptu and depend on current new releases or are simply classics that our members enjoy playing independently of icU° Gaming.
So feel free to hop on in (at the group leaders discretion) when you see us playing something other than what is on the official game roster.
A small group of us started to play STO quite a lot together and thought why not see if we can grow bigger then a small group of friends to a group of people interested in the same thing. We have the comms, the ships and the interest so why not give it a go? There aren't any strict rules as such other then the IcuGaming Rules (Which is mostly common sense really)

The icU° Gaming Community
F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions)/TL;DR
Q: What region are you based in?
A: Europe, although we have players from all over the world, especially in North America.
Q: Can I join?
A: Yes, we are always looking for more members!
Q: Are there any requirements or rules that I should be aware of?
A: Yes, we require a minimum age of 16 to join and that’s it! As for the rules, we mainly ask you to be courteous and respectful towards other members, a detailed list of rules may be found here.
Q: May I have your TeamSpeak information?
A: You may not unless you choose to become a member. The information may then be requested if you are indeed an approved member.
Q: I have more questions!
A: Ask away in the thread below!
Due to its Europe-focused player base, it is a diverse and rich community that is naturally accepting of all cultures and nationalities. Nothing is foreign to us!
Many gamers might be discouraged by the thought of an European player base but rest assured, despite the fact that the majority of our members are from Europe, icU° Gaming has many active members in North America as well.
This has led icU° Gaming to become a friendly, tight-knit and supporting community which plays a broad variety of current games including ones outside of the "officially adopted" games.
Our Values and Attitudes
We hope to appeal to players of all genres and attitudes, whether this would be FPS players, RPG players, gamers who are PvP orientated and gamers who are not. Our community does not discriminate against certain genres or styles; we are always open to new areas of the gaming world!
Furthermore, we wish to provide members with a friendly and supportive environment which is both casual and serious. This means that our main objective is to foster a fun attitude whilst simultaneously displaying success with our guilds in the various games!
We have no rules on seriousness, language or the like but still maintain a positive stance where we do not tolerate any form of abuse towards fellow members (inappropriate comments, racist remarks etc.) nor do we allow any kind of hacking within official icU games. We recognize that there is a thin but clear line between joking around and causing unnecessary grief to members, so please do not feel discouraged or limited by these rules.
There are no Rules regarding Bank other then limiting the number of items being withdrawn per day (Just to stop those robbers ) But if you ask any of the leaders / Officers I am sure they would be glad to take something out for you.
If you are interested in joining please send me a message to me on the STO forums or post on the Icu Forums. Again thanks for reading and Happy Hunting! RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!
