Storm Troopers Academy (STA) is the recruiting guild of Storm Troopers (ST). STA started as a training guild, but has since grown into a solid Guild in its own right. STA has a high emphasis on active character leveling and a strong emphasis on teamwork. STA has moderate emphasis on profession leveling and PvP / Perceptor fights. As the primary recruiting source for Storm Troopers, STA strives to build quality players in the tradition of its ST parent.

Introduction Edit

Founding Edit

Storm Troopers Academy is born of Storm Troopers, and is the extension of ST. Since Storm Troopers entry level requirement continues to increase many people who want to be part of us are not qualified yet. Therefore, Storm Troopers Academy was born. With the blessing of ST leader, SambaTraube, Pikel founded STA on 3rd March, 2006.

Purpose Edit

The purpose of STA is to allow mid-level Dofus characters to become familiar with and join the Storm Troopers family. The minimum level requirement of 100 is the first step because it shows commitment to developing a high level character. STA exists to train its members and help them get the most benefit for your character's development. In terms of ranking and in-Guild promotion, STA can be compared to a school, with the Officers as teachers who track your progress and "grade" accordingly.

Membership Edit

Most STA members are recruited through friends within ST and/or STA. A few STA members (i.e. "Diplomats") are ST alts and help STA members reach the qualifications to be promoted. They will be examples to you of what ST is and how we act.

Philosophy Edit

In STA, we respect each other and show deserved respect to those outside of it. STA is here to help each other and to grow our characters as well as our guild. The ST family has not only a reputation, but the character and determination to back it up. Therefore, we will support each other in training, crafting, and market. We back each other up.

History Edit

In July 2006, Pikel left Storm Troopers and stepped down as Leader of STA. SuperHans came on as the new Leader of STA. After the Leadership change, nearly half of STA quit for various reasons, with Pikel subsequently moving on as Leader of Illuminati.

By September 2006, the STA Leadership team had implemented policies to further support the long-term growth and success of STA, and STA had recovered its membership back to a full 60 members.

In October 2006, Storm Troopers (rushu) revised their policy to restrict recruiting from outside STA. As of November 2006, all future ST recruits will be expected to come through STA.

In December 2006, Freeloader left Storm Troopers and SuperHans stepped down as Leader of STA. Subsequently, Freeloader went on to found Banzai. Based on his long and continued committment to STA as a member and Officer, and ST member, Srine (Sranc) became the new STA Leader.

In March 2007, Sranc stepped down as Leader of STA, and Sadida-Love took on the interim responsibility of being STA Leader, before transferring leadership to KrazyGlueYourFace.

In April, 2007, the recruiting concept for STA was significnatly revised, and STA a lv.100 requirement was imposed for all members.

Current Status Edit

Subsequently, KrazyGlue stepped down as Leader of STA, and Zaireeka (LindseyAnna) took over leadership duties.

Today, STA continues to grow and provide a home for its members, while also serving as the primary entry point for new Storm Troopers (rushu) members.

Requirements Edit

Minimum Level 100 to Join Edit

The current minimum level to join STA is 100, to better fit with the current ST members and their activities.

P2P Required Edit

STA only recruits P2P players at this time. The all ST and STA members are P2P, so it is required that STA members also be P2P to participate in ST/STA activities.

XP Donation Edit

STA generally allows most members to set their own XP donation, and 3% is typical, with a minimum 1% XP donation by members. The 1% minimum XP donation is to help STA Leadership see who is active in the guild.

Graduation lv 110 Edit

One of the perks of STA Membership is eligiblity for Graduation into Storm Troopers (rushu). STA Treasurers and Officers become eligible for Graduation at level 110, after donating 10000 XP. Graduation into ST is not guaranteed, however. ST is nearly always full, and there is usually a "wait list" of potential graduates. Based on recent history, it typically takes anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks of waiting once they qualify to graduate. It is possible that some members may stay in STA for months before they graduate into ST.

STA members who meet Graduation requirements will be considered in priority by time in guild and overall attitude (team player, fun loving, respectful, and loyal). STA generally tries to graduate qualified members in order, as positions become available, but also considers class, level, XP donated, attitude, and ST's current needs.

STA Bypass level 140 Edit

If you are an active member who would like to join Storm Troopers and are over 140, you may bypass STA and go directly to ST with approval of SambaTraube, ST's leader, as well as ST's officers. Please contact SambaTraube if you are interested in this path. You MUST be over 140 to do this.
