The Exile Alliance, or the XA, was founded in 2005 by a small group that wanted a gaming clan that wasn’t focused on just one game. It was designed to evolve with the changes in gaming as well as the ever changing player base. The Exile Alliance prided itself on pioneering the notion that a gaming clan can be run by a majority and dismissed the traditional sense of gaming clans of the time.
In the early days, the Exile Alliance was primarily centered around Star Trek games. It had a foothold in four games: Star Trek Armada II, Star Trek: Voyager Elite Force, Star Trek Bridge Commander, and Star Fleet Command III. The Exile Alliance quickly became one of the more dominant clans within the Star Trek gaming universe.
As popularity with Star Trek games started to diminish, the Exile Alliance clan leaders called a meeting of all its members to start seeking out new games to branch out to. The clan expanded out to other genres, which included games such as Guild Wars, Counter Strike Source, and Halo. Things proved rocky at first, but knowing the decline of the Star Trek games, which everyone were more comfortable with, the members pressed on. Soon things started to come around. Over the course of a few years MMOs grew to be the dominant gaming genre within the Exile Alliance. The members continued to play other games as well such as multiple first-person-shooters and strategy games.
The Exile Alliance hasn’t been without hardships. As with any other gaming clan the Exile Alliance has gone through several dry spells and the membership dropped dramatically. However, the dedication of the remaining members lead to the rise of the Exile Alliance once again. These days, the Exile Alliance spans across several games including Armored Warfare, DayZ Overpoch, Guild Wars 2, Star Trek Online, Warframe, World of Tanks/Warships, and World of Warcraft. With the continued hard work and dedication of its leaders and members, the Exile Alliance will continue to grow. It will continue to evolve. Perhaps… maybe well into the next century.
Currently the Exile Alliance exists as a very relaxed gaming clan. We no longer have official divisions, or official positions other than the leadership council and security. This makes things much more casual and much more fun.
