[Silvermoon][A] <Can of worms> Legion raiding guild

1 post in this topic

<Can of Worms> is a guild that strives to be different, a guild that desires to redefine the social norms of the average WoW player and what we’ve become complacent about accepting. WoW is dead. Dead, as a social MMO. Dead, as a game where you work as a team. Dead, as an engaging experience outside of raiding or PvP.

Our goal, is to remedy this dilemma and to an extent, we already have. We formed solely due to the fact that WoW players no longer wish to help one another or form meaningful bonds through the game. They’d much rather brag about how amazing they are by linking arbitrary achievements that measure their virtual worth, or throwing around their virtual ranks, which they “worked so hard to achieve”.

Well… to put it politely, those players are scumbags and the reason that MMO gaming is on the decline, if they can’t have their instant gratification and pissing contests they’re not interested and it’s all done at the expense of other players. We do not accept that in this guild, at all. If you want to help your guild mates, make lifelong friends and enjoy your time like the days of old then our guild is the guild for you.

We’re not going to throw our guild progress in your face, it’s unremarkable and we’re fine with that as it stands with Legion around the corner. What I will say though is that our raid team has gone from 0 - 17 in the space of two weeks for some very simple reasons. We don’t care about your current experience, or your irrelevant raid progression from previous expansions. We don’t mind if you have a low item level and it’s all because we don’t have to.

See, here’s the problem with the game at the moment, everybody seems to have forgotten that they started out as a virtual nobody. At some point before they worked their way up the raid tiers and proved themselves, they were in exactly the same position. They now believe that for some reason that gives them the right to treat the people who they consider below them like dirt. It’s a total fallacy, how can new players or returning players prove themselves as good players if they’re not given the chance to? There are so many guilds (take a look) asking for ridiculous requirements and as a result they can’t fill their roster, all because they don’t want to take the time to invest in their players.

So, here we are then, offering exactly that. We will be progressing through heroic raids in Legion with every intention to progress to Mythic once our team is ready. We’re not going to be world first, or even server first, so what? In our opinion smashing through the content in two weeks is an easy way to set yourselves up for a long wait until the next tier, having gear is nice and we’ll get the gear, maybe not as fast as some sure, but fast enough to be more than relevant. Make no mistake though, we’re not a casual guild. We believe in everyone having equal say and equal respect within the guild but that goes both ways, if you want to be part of this environment we’re creating then you need to be willing to hold up your end of the deal.

We have the time and experience to teach everyone how to raid and play their classes to their maximum potential but we do not have time to hold people’s hands through raids. We will give you advice if you seek it along with the tools and environment to grow as a player but we won’t tolerate people who want a free ride, we are not a boosting guild. Now, we’re not saying you have to be the world’s best DPS, Healer or Tank but you do need to put the effort in and do your best at all times, that’s all we ask from any of our players.

Outside of raids we also run multiple events for both our raiders and socials to take part in, WoW shouldn’t be a game where you login three times a week for some loot and then disappear, there is a content drought but there’s no lack of things you can enjoy as part of a group. A group that we hope will also become fast friends.

      Hello everyone! Feel free to check out our website or send me a PM if there's anything i've missed, thank you.
      Website will be linked at the end of this post and ^ up there where it says website, clicky on it! That is where we handle our applications.
      About Us:
      Almost Heroes is a new international Alliance semi-hardcore raiding guild seated on EU-Silvermoon. We're looking to expand our current roster of very experienced and adept players.
      We are a group of friends starting anew come Legion. All of us have been raiding since the TBC-WotLK era at a high/very high level and therefore wanted to create something for ourselves. Almost everyone currently in the team knows each other in some way, shape, or form. Most of us are additionally very good friends, which in turn creates a healthy and friendly atmosphere.
      Regardless of our relations to each other, we still have a very competitive mindset when it comes to clearing current content. Our current plan is to clear the heroic bosses fairly quick, so that we can start Mythic progress as soon as possible.
      With all of that in mind, we aim to create a friendly and long-lasting home for anyone that wants to be a part of it, a steady raiding schedule and lots of progressing.
      Recruitment:
      We're recruiting ALL classes at this moment, especially healers.
      Healers>Ranged>Tank>Melee.
      Specifically looking for Resto Druid and Shaman, Holy Paladin and a MM/BM Hunter.
      Schedule:
      Wednesday 20:00-23:00
      Friday 20:00-23:00
      Sunday 20:00-23:00
      General info:
      We are using Discord as our way of communicating.
      We're also using a Loot Council to gear our members.
      Raid Invites go out @19:30-19:45.
      ??tba??
      What you can expect as a Trial:
      Our Trial period usually lasts around 2-3 weeks. General feedback on how you're doing. Sometimes you might get rotated out in favor of another Tank/DPS/Healer for a very specific encounter (Most likely wont be happening). A very friendly and social community. Experienced Officers to give you any help you'd like.
      What we expect from you:
      In-depth knowledge of your class, and raid encounter tactics. Come prepared to raids, Flasks, Pots etc.. but also AddOns. No slacking and/or AFKing during raids. A good mindset, wanting to improve and not be afraid to share suggestions. !Do not be afraid to ask questions! Friendly and mature, we like to joke around a lot tho.
      Also you can always whisper one of the Officers in-game or send me a PM here or on our forums, or just reply to this thread if you have any questions or the like. It is in our best interest to help you! If none of us are online, just whisper anyone currently online and he/she may be able to point you our way.

      Stinki Monki Finger (SMF), formed 28th April 2005, was the longest standing raiding guild on Hellscream. On Dec 15th 2016 we made the decision to transfer our guild to Tarren Mill in search of new opportunities and secure a strong future for the guild and its community. We have been around to see all of Vanilla, Burning Crusade, Wrath, Cataclysm, MoP, WoD & now time for Legion.
      We always strive for a nice and relaxed atmosphere within the guild and always show optimism for killing future bosses.

      Stinki Monki Finger is currently searching for:
      Hunter
      Shadow Priest

      Strong applications from all classes/roles will also be considered. This means Melee aswell, so dont be afraid to drop by! :)

      We require you to have previous experience at raiding Heroic or Mythic mode content and be available for atleast 2-3 raids per week.

      Current progress
      7/7 M, ToV 1/3 M.

      Main raid schedule:
      Wednesday 20:00-23:00
      Sunday 20:00-23:00
      Monday 20:00-23:00

      We are also organising Mythic dungeons outside of raid times and there is a possibility of an Alt Raid.

      We have been a guild since Vanilla and known each other for over 10 years. Our goal is to always aim for the highest difficulty while raiding in a relaxed atmosphere. We keep in contact with each other through various games and you will definitely feel the guilds comradeship when playing with us.

      If you have any questions feel free to contact Finesse or Ergunk#2122 for a chat.

      Kind regards,
      Ergunk
