We are going to edit in a sweet line-up screenshot later after either voore or i get photoshop, but for now, here is an action shot:



As with every finally kill of a tier, or more specifically final kill of an expansion, i agreed that i would write a "novel," as my guild likes to call it, on the forums with my thoughts about the tier, the expansion and the guild.

This expansion has been something truly special for <WWA>. Cataclysm bore witness to our transformation from some mediocre US 60th guild to slightly more respectable US 12th. We changed a lot over this expansion, as a guild and as players. Very little of the roster has actually remained the same, and fewer still have been here since the guild's beginning (just Killmour, raw and i).

There have been varying opinions of this tier as a whole, but i would say overall i found this tier to be largely enjoyable, the obvious exception being spine. Many of the fights were surprisingly well designed with interesting mechanics, but were simply not correctly tuned. Overall this tier simply seemed too easy. I know this seems vaguely hypocritical of me, being that we still did lose to 11 other 25man guilds, but for our sake, and all of theirs, we could have used more of a challenge.

With regards to the madness fight itself, i honestly found this to be one of the most enjoyable fights in a long time. The only qualm i really have is that it was too easy. I know a lot of people have complained that there really are only two new mechanics in heroic madness, but the way the mechanics interact make it seem like a whole different fight. A perfect example is our first madness kill, where we killed kalecgos BEFORE nozdormu, because the spellweaving buff simply didn't matter. Even attempting heroic without spellweaving would be hilarious. Madness was a great fight to end the expansion on. Too bad it was overshadowed by shit ass garbage like spine.

More excitement in my extended post, (don't want to fuck up the front page too badly).

It was nice to do damage one last time before the rogues take over with their legendaryz.

Apparently "dropping your 5 shittiest players" is very easy to do because 25 man guilds are soul-less corporation style machines where everyone only knows each other by their last name and show up to raids with a suit and a briefcase and shake hands at the end of raid and log off.

Reading this post just makes me realize how awesome it was to quit the plague of World of Warcraft raiding.

Regardless, GRATS Sark and co!

No, Fajita. Fuck that. Never again am I spending 14 hours on a Saturday doing fucking awful shitastic bumblefuck ball-gaggingly dreadful alt runs with the timmyfuck casuals and other things. Do you recall Northrend Beasts when we first went in there? Yeah. No. Never again.

Also, good show, gentlemen. Wish I could have been around and online for the server spam, but I haven't existed out of lab for a couple of weeks now. sad.gif

Pip pip. Cheerio.

Jävla skit.

No. The random people that we had in the guild that we tried to take to Heroic ToGC on like week 3 of that. SC alts helped keep some sanity, as most of you were at least proficient in what you were doing.

Pip pip. Cheerio.

Jävla skit.
