We have exciting things in the
works around here, and are improving things every day. Here is a summary of
last guild meetings meeting minutes, and some contest information. Firstly I’d
like to take this chance to welcome our new knights: Olaudria, Knightgoddess,
Mc-Wgiggia, George, and others! If you see someone you don’t recognize around,
be sure to give them a warm welcome. Our officer staff has been working hard
recruiting and we’ve on average been inviting one new member a day, or several
a week! Other tasks on hand for the Officer
Updating the website (just a bit)
Further strengthening the ranks
Encouraging more group runs and training for
We would also like to note that
there are several non-commissioned officer (NCO) positions available, and if
you want to contribute to the Cloud Nine community, get official recognition
for your actions! Benefits include: upgraded access to the forum site, access
to officer meetings to help decide the future of the guild, invitations to
member recruiting interviews and runs, and more!
Lastly, I would like to talk about
our current running contests and giveaways! As we all know we’re working hard
to make C9 move to the forefront of premier guilds in the game. As such, we’re
welcoming a variety of new knights. If you have a few people you run with now,
let’s bring them into the guild! Any current member who refers a friend of
brings in a new member is eligible for a 500CE prize (provided they last a week
and are a good member)! And now, our current running contest information.
The weeks contest is....

Next week’s contest we are
starting a bit early in the spirit of Memorial Day around these parts
Ayl’s terrific tongue twisting tournament!
Due to inspiration from
Aylnine’s recruiting page bump, I’ve decided that this would be a great
contest. The rules as always are simple:
Go to the official Cloud Nine
recruitment thread http://forums.spiralknights.com/en/node/54507
Enter a tongue twister or riddle (must be related to Spiral
Bonus points from me personally if you mention
fellowship, the guild, or are clever/cute
Posts must be rated PG (if
not you get a personal visit from me for the fabulous prize of a poke in the
eye, or a demotion, or a sharp reprimand…. Maybe an evil scowl)
You *must* leave a signature
with your character name and guild rank at the bottom
Prizes are: 200 CE for the
top 5 (Yes 5!) Entries!
Judges will be our officer
also will have a LD contest on Saturday!! I originally intended to in game mail
everyone weekly, but I recently discovered that our site will mail everyone
already! If interesting in crazy contests and giveaways I highly recommend you
change your account options to allow emails, and subscribe to the following
threads: Flawed and Ayls weekly contest, Deads Delves, Saturday Lockdown
challenge. This should at least get you
info about how to make some scratch away from running FSC or JK again, and
again…. And….. again. I’m going to work
a way to put in guild updates in a similar subscribe / emailing members fashion
*deep breath* and as always
more to come, everyday and every week
GM of Cloud Nine
We're pleased to announce that we hit a big milestone today, having seen the creation of our 3 millionth Spiral Knights account! In celebration, and as our thanks to all of you for playing, elevators will have no energy cost from now to Saturday, May 19 at 2pm PST. These two free days will be added to accounts that are using an Elevator Pass. Go forth and explore!
And if you would like to see a few other fun stats since launch, check out this info graphic:
With a squadron of Janitorial Jellies picking up after our celebration here at Spiral HQ, now seems like a great moment for us to give everyone an overview of the additions planned for Spiral Knights in the coming months...
More Missions and Levels to Explore!
New Missions and levels are on the way for everyone to experience. And for those that want a serious challenge, look out for the new 'Danger Missions' addition.
More Combat Options!
We're also going to be adding a substantial feature that makes battles more exciting and strategic. This is a tall order and will likely be released in stages; our first step will be a fun, new addition that we believe will represent a welcome change to the game. The most explosive addition to the game yet!
More Accessible DLC!
As has been previously discussed, we're working to make Operation Crimson Hammer giftable to all players. We'll keep you updated as we complete the multiple steps to make this possible.
Expanded Guild Features!
Over the last year of live production, we've received encouragement (in the form of comments on Facebook and Twitter, forum posts, responses to our surveys, and promises of delicious cake) from players asking us to add more functionality to guilds.
We take the need for active and relevant guilds seriously and are now turning our attention to this feature. This project will start with guilds having the ability to expand their halls, increase member limits, and furnish their guild halls. You'll even be able to purchase special features that benefit everyone in the guild! We also expect to expand guilds further in the future to bring a strategic aspect to guild play.
Thanks once again, everyone, for playing Spiral Knights! We look forward to hearing from you here on the forums, and we'll see you in the Clockworks!
