[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.

      <Cryogenic> - 4/9M - Recruiting all RDPS classes for an immediate raid spot to round out our 20m roster. Tues/Weds 7-11 SERVER. Discord/Flask/Food provided for raiders. 925++. Pst for more info!!!

      The guild was founded by a group of friends with a mission, to progress through mythic raids without the toxic environment. The guild was formed halfway through EN and despite the late start we built a solid core of raiders and down 5/7M EN before the Nighthold was released. We ended up having to break up as soon as we cleared heroic Nighthold, but we are back with a vengance here on Stormrage now. 

      CURRENT PROGRESSION:
      Emerald Nightmare -- 5/7M
      Trial of Valor -- 3/3H
      Nighthold -- 10/10H 5/10M (Guild break after Gul'dan kill)
      Tomb of Sargeras -- 9/9N 9/9H 4/9M
      MOST RECENT KILL: MYTHIC SISTERS OF THE MOON

      LOOKING FOR:
      We are currently looking for people that can commit to all raid days, who will show up prepared and not waste our time or their own time. We understand that real life happens, but we do ask that our raiders maintain at least 90% attendance and that can make sure they can raid without interruption. We don't have any strict attendance policies/punishments, however it is important for us to keep our progression as strong as possible, which relies heavily on raid wide attendance. 

      RAID TIMES:
      Tuesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Wednesdays: 7-11 Server (EST) Mythic/Progression
      Thursday 8-11 Server (EST) Optional Heroic/Normal

      We also often run old content (M EN/ToV/Nightbane/Nighthold) as well as constant M+ groups throughout the day. These runs are 100% optional.

      RECRUITMENT:
      We are currently looking for all exceptional players to rebuild our raid team. We don't care about item level or prior experience. We want quality players to learn, grow, and progress with. We currently have a very strong core of raiders, but with attendance issues and people quitting wow, we are strongly shifting our focus on finding players that excel at their class/spec to round out the last few spots in our main roster. 

      CURRENT NEED:
      ALL DPS CLASSES - (ranged more so than melee)
      ALL EXCEPTIONAL PLAYERS

      EXPECTATIONS:
      We expect all raiders to come to raids prepared. This means: 
      - Having the correct gems/enchants (200 gems)
      - Class knowledge
      - Raid preparation. 
      We only raid 8 hours a week, so it is imperative that we don't waste time.All underpreforming players, regardless of rank and class, will be benched until performance can be brought up to par for the current content. We are not interested in carrying anyone, and if you cannot perform raid mechanics, then we are not the guild for you. Cauldrons and food will be provided by the guild bank when available. Everyone in the guild is taken care of, and this is done primarily through donation by our members. Our guild is a small community and we all pitch in to get things done.

      LOOT SYSTEM:
      As a guild we opt to run loot through a loot council that is run by the officers. Loot is distributed in a way that most benefits the raid team in terms of progression. Distributing loot factors are performance/attendance/role/rank (I.E. Trials are typically lower on loot priority. (Higher rank than takes priority over trial) Loot is always dished out in a way that is most beneficial to the guild is a whole, and is a completely transparent process to avoid drama. We use the add-on RClootcouncil for ease of distribution.
