    I put an application in to the website. Plan on playing a draenei pally. Between work, family, and other hobbies I am not sure I will be able to keep up. But it sounds like a fun idea.

    That's completely fine, forsaken. I plan on keeping recruitment updated when we are at our stop caps so new people can constantly be coming in to the guild!

    This has to be the most positive thread I have seen in months, not just for WoW, but for any game on this site. I'm misting up a little....I gotta go.

    Death is nothing to us, since when we are, Death has not come, and when death has come, we are not.

    I think this is a great idea, and something like this is what I probably need for me to get back into the game. I never did lvl 60 or 70 raids, and it'd be cool to finally be able to participate in those raids at the level appropriate range. There are some things that are keeping me from taking the plunge though.

    1. I'm in management and work wed-sat night-shift, around 11 hours a day. 2 hours of travel time as well. So I'm exhausted when I come home and won't play. So that leaves at MOST, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday for playing. With that said, I also have a life and that life takes place on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesdays. For instance, every Tuesday night I play in a beer pong tourny at a local bar with some friends, so I couldn't raid that night. That leaves Sunday and Monday. Of course, on Sunday or Monday, I may want to spend time with family or other friends. In other words, I could play around 10 hours tops a week and those 5-10 hours would be on a Sunday or Monday. I seriously doubt I'll be able to keep up with levels, much less make the raids if they aren't on a Sunday or Monday, preferably Mondays. 

    2. What days and times do you plan on raiding? Since the whole premise of your guild is to group up and raid together, it'd help to know before we waste our money and time on the game if we're even going to be able to participate in serious group content with the guild.

    3. You already have 60+ members, but the raid content ranges from 10 man to 40 man, and that's not even at all level tiers. So how will you determine who gets to participate in the 10, 20,  and 40 man raids? Early in the thread, you more or less mentioned that if you give a clear and concise goal/direction for the guild, then the people who apply are assumed to be in align with those goals and direction. Working under that assumption, you're going to exclude and piss off anywhere from 50+ to 20+ members who want to raid with you, but will be unable to due to the size limits of raid parties. Once again, this is information that is needed before wasting time and money on a game.

    So while you have a great idea, and I'd love to participate, reality is rearing it's ugly head and forcing me to use wisdom to determine if joining the game will be a waste of time or not, and only you can answer that since you're the one who will set the pace for leveling, raids, and pick who gets to raid and who doesn't.

    this is a pretty amazing idea, is it too late to sign up for this? ive been out of wow for about 6 months, but what you are describing is just too good to pass up, I have ok availability (have a wife and 1 year old) im off all nights and all sundays, most saturdays. Lemme know if I should go ahead and sign up on the website :)

    Nate1980, I will reply to you when I get home, this site isn't very mobile friendly and I would like to address all of your points, give me a couple hours!
  • ninjapyninjapy Member UncommonPosts: 39

    Make sure you only raid on the days Nate wants you to. Beer pong is his life. Nate do this guild a favor and not resub and apply.

    Anyway good luck with this , great idea , I hope it is successful.

    I think it's an interesting experiment.  He should keep this thread alive with updates on how they are progressing.  I don't think I know of anyone still attempting the old raids at level, they just do faceroll mode.  Of course the mechanics were altered to allow soloing so it is different plus the fact that abilities now didn't exist back then... you are technically boosted before you even walk in.  But still, would be interesting to see.

    Thanks for the kind words, Nate. On to your points.

     

    1. I don't think I can really do much for you here, it seems like you have a chalk full schedule, with even the days your free your not *really* free, the best I could offer here, is there are 83 Re-Rollers thus far, maybe a few people would not be saved to run with you?

     

    2. I haven't made a set raid schedule yet, mainly because we have a TON of Re-Rollers and if even HALF of these people commit to the Re-Roll we will be running AT LEAST 2 groups. As far as WoD raid schedules, I have not made this an item of interest yet mainly because we are a Re-Roll guild first and foremost for now, with many people joining to do Legacy raids, I don't want to have a "set" schedule for Legacy raids because they can be completed with a smaller than intended amount of people and if needed can be run by guild mates on off hours.

     

    3. I believe I covered this in the 2nd point a bit. There will be multiple groups if and when it is needed. I have a couple of close friends in the guild that I know are competent enough to run a group of people through these raids and I also have a lot of people interested in Raid Leader positions in the guild, and this would basically be my test for these inquiries.

     

    To end, you do have a VERY tight schedule, and I don't want to claim for a minute that I will be able to work around it and make things happen for you. However, I do intend to keep recruiting for the guild when we are at locked levels for Legacy raids, so you should have time to catch up and a constant influx of people to run the older content with, it just may require a little planning on your part.

    Not sure if trolling but taking this much time to write all that to imply you can only play 1 or 2 nights a week and wishing to join a...wait for it....Raiding guild, is kind of asking for too much maybe?

    If one can't be flexible or is so limited in one's time, then joining a guild where flexibility of time and a little commitment is an asset (if not requirement) then maybe it should be chalked up as being unrealistic to do so.

    Great idea.

    If you had made this post 2-3 yrs ago I would have been on board easy.  I got so sick of the time sink and endless grind for gear I totally uninstalled the game.  Im invested in another MMO so Im happy.

    I hope you guy/gals have fun.....Im sure you will.

    I didn't use to think so, but 2 out of 7 days dedicated to a video game as an adult is still quite a commitment. However, I remember when I was in my 20's and could dedicate 8 hours a day everyday to a video game. I wish I had the time to do so again, because this idea sounds like a lot of fun. Hey, maybe I'll still resub at some point and just find a casual raiding guild. I've been a part of a few in the past. I LOVE group content. I began playing MMO's with DAoC and SWG. All I did was group and I'm displeased that the genre has changed so much. Thanks for answering my questions.

    Yep I am in there and level 37! Havin a great time and lookin forward to the raids
  • bgonzalbgonzal Member Posts: 10

    Good concept, not so good execution.  Basically staggered blitz to 90...  No heirlooms makes 0 sense since a number of the members went from 60-70 in a day and will be raiding on Tuesday after the limit was just raised on Saturday. 

    Don't bother joining if you like to see the sun every once and a while.  You will basically have to go as fast as possible with the hope that you get to the cap in time to join a raid.  Or just stay out of guild, use heirlooms and then level to the current cap of 70 since there doesn't seem to be a rule against recruiting someone at the current cap.  

    As I type this a buddy told me two people did kara as a duo so I doubt they will be staying at 70 for long.  Either join a 90 guild or find one that truly wants to enjoy the ride to 90 again.
