*Big congrats to Crystal Desert/Ascension for their great coordination and success this last BWE. We showed everyone just how easy it is to use coordination to overcome twice our number, whether it be at a siege or open field.*
Ascension was formed in March 2012 with the understanding that while one guild may be organized, prepared, and ready - - they cannot ensure server victory on their own. It takes the coordination of multiple armies and determination of many guild leaders to ensure WvW success and ultimately, dominance.
With a collaboration of shared information, charts, strategies, and research - we have found out that the free flow of information is key in establishing a unity that quickly overcomes and eliminates opposition from any front. Through coordinated SPvP scrimmages, to WvW tactics and strategy meetings, we make sure to truly define what it means to be organized in MMO combat.
The Alliance is run by a "knights of the roundtable" system that gives each alliance member one vote equal to any other in decisions. Whether it be a new member to the alliance, or issues that may arise. Majority vote completes the decision, and it is considered common respect by all parties to accept the decision once that has been reached. It is through this system, knowing we are all after a common goal, that we strive to further improve our experiences in GW2.
We aim to efficiently cover three time zones with an efficient blend of organization, coordination, and chemistry. These are the guilds that are part of the alliance now.

I would love to have my guild become an equal part of this venture, how do I join?
Joining Ascension requires a majority vote from the members in Ascension - - the process is simple. There are some things you should know.
We do not have a "head" or a "leader" and we do not require anyone to be on any given TS or website. We do encourage however, that you have your own TS so that we may use the commander chat functionality to talk between TS servers, even while your leading a raid in your own TS.
We share a lot of information and strategies that are not available to the public yet, you must understand upon joining that you are trusted with keeping that information confidential.
Lastly, we do not tolerate any public response to flames, jealously, or similar material. We "walked our talk" in beta, and made it very clear that with proper planning, we can overcome 2-3x our numbers. While this certainly creates some epic scenarios, it also leads to rebuttal from the losing side, who otherwise have been used to zerging everything down successfully. We do not respond to public debate, and instead let our reputation speak for itself. Our performance in BWE and the live game to come says more than enough.
"Speak softly and carry a big stick"
If you want to join an proven alliance that has a strong focus on developing server pride, and pushing the competitive scene - - both in SPvP and WvW - - then give us a shout. These are the alliance members; any of them can be contacted.
