“Mankind shares an innermost trait – the desire to explore. To be the first to enter the void, in an unprecedented arena with the cosmos – that is why we are here.”
Vanguard (VNGD) was formed in September of 2018 by our Founders, DracoHardt and Randrik. They felt there was a true need to have a meaningful yet fun organization in Star Citizen, that listened to and valued its members. Since then we have grown into a quality org, run by an active player base, with a strong emphasis on structure, organization, and training.
We are a team of members that are passionate about Star Citizen. We accept all players that share our goals and interests, both casual and hard core. Vanguard believes in the rule that real life comes first, and will never tell you to put the organization over your real life, job, and certainly not over your family.
We are a non-exclusive organization. While we’d love it if you want Vanguard to be your primary home, affiliates are welcome.
Members are allowed to do as they please – with the exception of piracy against law abiding players. Leadership reserves the right to blacklist organizations, or prohibit affiliate or primary membership in an organization if membership poses a security risk to Vanguard.
Vanguard is divided in 6 branching Units known as Wings, covering all aspects of the game, from combat and mining to competition and content creation. We understand that an organization can only succeed by combining the strengths of different disciplines. One Wing alone cannot fly, they all need to move in concert to soar.
The 5 Operational Wings are led by the Command Wing, the administrative and executive heart of Vanguard.
Vanguard has a comprehensive ranking structure that allows players to help each other grow. Whether you want to focus on becoming an expert as one of our Raptors, or command and inspire, we are looking for skilled people to work and play alongside each other. We work closely with our members to identify strengths and promote from within, and encourage growth of both player skills and leadership ability. Vanguard is an organization where you can aim for the stars, and know you’ve got people helping you reach them every step of the way.
Membership in VNGD does not require all members to be a primary member of the VNGD org and may be set as affiliate. Citizens may join ‘club style’ affiliate ORGS, but leadership reserves the right to blacklist ORGS, or prohibit membership if said membership poses a security risk to VNGD.
We are a team of members that are passionate about Star Citizen. While some of our members are hardcore players, we do not require our members to be hardcore players. We accept all players that share our goals and interests, regardless of them being casual or hardcore. VNGD believes in the rule that real life comes first and will never tell you to put the ORG over your real life, job, and certainly not over your family.
All members are allowed to do as they please – with the exception of piracy against law abiding players. There is no obligation to participate in any activities. However if you decide to participate in a specific activity, you shall follow the command of the leader of that activity. This is to ensure everybody will have a fun time playing. Less Drama, More Fun!
This also means that you do not need to be an hardcore player. Casual players are more than welcome too. If you want to play one time a week just to relax, that’s great! Or do you want to participate in several activities throughout the day? That is 100% fine too! As long as you are having fun!
Vanguard is filled with players that are just as passionate about Star Citizen as your are. Young and Old. All united by the passion of gaming. For many, this is a dream come true. Finally a space sim that brings science-fiction to life. You are commanding the helm and creating a life for yourself in the vastness of the Universe. Once you join Vanguard, you know you will never need to play alone. Every player is here to help each other and have fun!
You only own an Aurora or Mustang? Maybe just an Aegis Stalker? Vanguard has a large amount of ships that Vanguardians will have access to. We have at least one of every ship in the game including multiples of many of the core economic or combat focused.
Our goal by playing together is not to only have fun, it is also to create more profit for each other. By playing together we can achieve more.. Depending on the activity, profits will be shared accordingly. All members are allowed to do as they please, there is no obligation to participate in any activities. However, if you decide to participate in a specific activity, you shall follow the command of the leader for that activity. This is to ensure everybody will have a fun time playing. This ensures a smooth operation and a better team building experience.
You do not need to be a hardcore player. If you want to play once a week just to relax, it is 100% fine. Do you want to participate in activities all day? This is 100% fine too. It is entirely up to you on how much you want to put into your profession in the Verse and you place at home in Vanguard.
The vast majority of members have families and a real life, and we firmly believe that keeping these things before gaming is the best way to go. Never feel bad, and never put anyone down, for having to take care of real life.
Most of us graduated high school years ago. Leave the teen drama in the school halls. Drama will not be tolerated.
Negativity is a plague that can take over with even the slightest infiltration. Any negative members have got to go. We’re not expecting fluffy bunnies and rainbows 24/7, but don’t be a debbie-downer!
Treat others the way you’d want to be treated. Treat all your fellow members and our allies with respect.
Being a jerk is not acceptable. We won’t accept jerks as clients, vendors, or members. We will never be jerks. Life’s too short.
Never accept “good enough” for yourself. Do the best for yourself and your organization. This ideal should be lived and remembered every day!
The game is still being built, right beneath our feet. Stay up to date with the current mechanics, learn how things work, and embrace changes as they come. Plan for the future, but be well familiar with the present, and make the most of it.
Star Citizen is a massively collaborative game, and it will take many people working in concert to achieve most things. While our Wings are responsible for building our understanding of and expertise in their respective disciplines, all Vanguard members are encouraged to experience the game in as many ways as they like, and no role will ever be limited to membership within a single Squadron, Group, or Wing.
