Founded in 2012, YGC has its origins in the MMOFPS Planetside 2. As a Vanu outfit on the server Helios, we had the distinction of being a founding member of the Helios Vanu Command (HVC), a coalition of outfits in that server. At our peak we had 1200 active members and were one of the server’s premier communities.
Unfortunately, poor decisions by the developers about the course of the game caused the majority of the established communities to seek other games, which is why our main game is now Star Citizen.
Jumping from a free-to-play game to one like Star Citizen did cause us to lose some of our members, but our core groups is still very active and new players join us daily.
We actively play the Star Citizen alpha releases to improve our skills and practice activities we will be conducting in the finalized universe. We have many members who are skilled pilots that are capable of passing their skills onto anyone who wants to learn.
Services we provide our members include access to our Teamspeak 3 server, website, forums, and Steam group. We also have members with expertise in various technical fields so any question someone may have can usually be answered here.
YGC plans to fully expand into Star Citizen and create an active and prosperous community of like-minded citizens, working together to create an order within this chaotic universe.
While CIG completes the game, Ybok Gaming Community (YGC) will be hard at work to build up our Star Citizen community. Our primary goal within Star Citizen is to establish a functional, dynamic, and far-reaching presence within the ‘Vers, felt by players both within our community and without. To achieve this goal, we need two things: First, a large number of like-minded, active players who can work well as members of the winning team. Second, we will create an efficient organization within the game that benefits our community, our affiliates, and the greater UEE.

The Ybok Gaming Community is active in multiple games and provides a website with a forum, as well as a TeamSpeak 3 server for VOIP. Members may participate in multiple games and hold different positions in the hierarchy of each game’s guild. Their community rank will not change due to promotion in a specific game’s guild. Community rank is gained through membership time and/or active community participation.
Community Ranks (Low to high)
- YGC Member
- Basic membership of the community. This is gained upon completion and approval of a membership application through our website.
- Senior YGC
- Members who have been with the community for a significant amount of time, and/or actively participate in events and community growth, will be granted this rank. They usually hold Moderator permissions on our TS3. Senior YGC can be applied for on our website, or granted by leadership.
- Ranking administrators of YGC. Each regent has several years of membership and they effectively manage the community if Ybok is absent.
