Bio


I am InvictusHomine, most people just call me Invictus. My name is Latin for "unconquered man" or "undefeated man." I chose it not because I am utterly extraordinary and I have never lost, no, I chose it because even after I lose I keep playing. Even when it's 4 vs 1 I keep playing. I believe devoutly in the words of Frank Crane, and that is: "the good player is not the one who always wins, but the one who plays a poor hand well." But why Invictus? I got my name from one of my favorite poems, Invictus, by William Ernest Hensley. It's pretty much the essence of the previous quote. It reads:

  • Out of the night that covers me,
    Black as the pit from pole to pole,
    I thank whatever gods may be
    For my unconquerable soul.

    In the fell clutch of circumstance
    I have not winced nor cried aloud.
    Under the bludgeonings of chance
    My head is bloody, but unbowed.

    Beyond this place of wrath and tears
    Looms but the Horror of the shade,
    And yet the menace of the years
    Finds and shall find me unafraid.

    It matters not how strait the gate,
    How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate,
    I am the captain of my soul.
To live this out in every facet of my life is my ultimate goal. So that includes when playing Halo.

About Us:
Our goal is to unite the strong under one flag, in order to bond together fireteams without the ever-present noobs. We are here to play the game, not to train eight-year-olds to play an FPS. We are pretty accepting of most members, all you have to do is Play Nice, Play Often, and Play Smart. We focus on three areas of character development relating to these three areas. These three pillars are as follows:
  • Seniority: Plays Halo 5 often (is not absent for weeks at a time)
  • Strategy: Plays smart, reserved, does not run blindly guns blazing.
  • Sportsmanship: No teabagging, or rage-quitting.
We will not have any member of our group embarrassing us or giving us a bad name. If you are unsporting or unstrategic, you will be terminated. Our second goal is Achilles. We want to earn it, but at a reasonable pace. For this reason, we don't moniter commendations; however, we do moniter activity.

Our mission:
The goal of Invictus Exercitus is to band together all strong halo players into a cohesive community. We seek to bring all good players into our fold, to grow together as individuals and as a whole. We want to be elite, not elusive. We want to become a prominent part of the Halo Waypoint society, just as the WNA did before us. We have in many ways modeled our group after our predecessors, but where they ended we shall continue. We are not here just for Achilles. Achilles is the reward, we are here for the journey. We are here to play Halo and to play it well. Achilles is but one unlockable, there are others. Invictus Exercitus is a brotherhood, and a sisterhood, that plays Halo 5 for the sheer sport. All other things will follow. That being said, we are a long term company, we plan to not only exist post-Achilles, but to thrive.

Community Activities:
We head off a lot of activities. Our biggest one right now is a semi-new Discord Bot Coding club. We make bots using JS, but will also be using Java soon. We also want to create a multi company correspondence system, so if you are in a company currently be sure to message the leadership.

Member Requirements:
Becuase of the high standards we require from our players, we take special precautions to make sure that no bad players happen to find their way onto the team. Players will be monitored. The posts you make, the games you play, and the parties you host will reflect back onto our company. Think twice, and a third time, before teabagging or -Yoink- ing that Spartan. We will not hesitate to distance ourselves from your foolish actions. This is a sudo-democracy. If enough players believe a member is not fit for our group, that member will be terminated. "We are only as strong as our weakest link," there is no place for weakness in this company.


Comments and Citations:
Invictus Exercitus means "Unconquered Army" in Latin. Our name and motto are inspired by William Ernest Henley's poem, Invictus.
