From The Shadows As One…
That is the motto we have lived by for nearly a decade, hundreds of us taking those five words to heart. To unite and reach out from beyond the shadows in one signified movement to bring the gaming community as we know it together for one common goal; Teamwork. We don’t look for fame, nor do we care about the glory, we look to build on teamwork, to strengthen our bonds with our squad members to achieve the win. We have fought across many fields and we have lost many battles, yet those losses have helped shape us, and mold us into what we are today. We don’t look at is as defeat, we look at it as a learning opportunity. Yes, losing is inevitable, but it’s how you handle the loss that differentiates you from everyone else.
Shadow Company was founded in October of 2008 by a small group of gamers with one simple goal in mind; to build a community for like minded, mature gamers. Today, we are keeping that goal alive by focusing on the teamwork portion of gaming. Members are placed into “Squads”, and together with their teammates they work together on tactics, strategies, communication, call-outs, and most of all how to use all of these skills together to best the enemy on the battlefield. We may not always win, but the best feeling in the world is knowing that your team had your back through and through.
Shadow Company has a basic military structure; Squads, Regiments, Divisions, right down to the Ranks and Medals. When you first join Shadow Company you will undergo an Introductory period that brings you up to speed on a majority of the Rules and Regulations that everyone in SC must follow. From there you will be placed into a Structured Squad where you will start working on your team building skills with your other squad members. It’s easy to get kills, but to have a group of players on the same team come together and act as a single cohesive unit, you can not only get the kills, but you can get the win too.
Of course, we don’t limit ourselves to just squads. Shadow Company offers many positions within our community to members willing to volunteer their time to take on these extra tasks. From Recruiters to Graphic Artists, SC offers many positions for our members to fill. Keep in mind, some of these positions require quite a bit more dedicated time than others, but the end result is always the same for each and every position; the success of Shadow Company.
Here at SC, we have just a few basic rules for anyone interested in joining such as:
- You must be 18 years or older
- You must have and use a working mic
- You must be able to attend at least 1 practice a week
- You must be able to use Discord to attend Introductory meetings.
Supported Consoles and Titles are:
- PS4 XB1 Call of Duty: WWII (NA and EU)
- PS4 Battlefield 1 (NA Only)
- PS4 XB1 Destiny 2 (NA Only)
Though this sounds like all you will be doing is squad based practices, that is far from the truth. Yes, when you sign up to be a member you are volunteering your time to help make Shadow Company a better place, but Shadow Company is more then that. We hold regular squad v. squad scrimmages, inter-clan tournaments, community nights, community contests, an Top 5 Clips series via YouTube and much much more. There is always some sort of activity going on in SC, and we invite you to join in on the fun.
Shadow Company puts family first, so what does that mean exactly? That means just as it sounds; life happens. If you can’t make a practice or will be out for a while with some family or real-life issues then just let us know. We will not penalize you for the uncontrollable nor will we boot you to the curb because you cannot make a few practices. Simply inform us that you need to step away, and we will make it possible for you to step away and return to full duty when things are sorted out.
