Not wanting to be elitist but DS was probably the easiest content in game after Naxxramas2 :\

I didn't say it was easy, I said it was the easiest. That means that a group who couldnt clear DS normal at 30% debuff was hardly better than a disorganized pug, considering DS norm 25 at 30% was easier than LFR.

So what you are saying is that DS with the 30% buff was easy?
well no shit.
ICC with 30% buff was easy as hell as well.
With that kind of logic, any content that wasnt nerfed before new content came along was 10 times harder than either of those.

And if you were not able to clear DS normalmode with the 30% buff, then your guild is worse in terms of progress to an unorganized pug.
That said, progress is not the most important part of raiding, especially not if you are still only doing normalmodes 5months after the content came out.
You can still have fun and enjoy yourself, nomatter at what level you are playing.

First raid on Stormrage - with that blind person that was talked about on Wow insider.

VERY fun night. Did Amber/Empress/up to and including Lei Shi. And the team feels great so far.
Heroics soon(tm)!

i totally agree that with the 30% buff it was sickening how simple the fights became as you get mroe and more mechanics to ignore

i was stating at release, for some guilds it was a formality to clear normal, like Method and the other world top 10..50...200 guilds, and for others it took a little bit. we got i think 3 kills prenerf (may have been just 2) and didnt get spine down til the last week of 15% with madness being the next week iirc (spine went down at the end of raid time)

as treck said,

i just wish more MTadins had this attitude, and be as congratulatory to those of us in lesser progressed guilds as we are to treck, esp when Method gets a worlds first

The real problem, regardless of where you are at, is the attitude. When my current raid group was stuck on Elegon, the attitude from the raid leadership was so reeking of frustration that when we got the kill after enough gear/practice, there was no joy. Now it's the same on Garalon (and tornado-bug). When we 2-shot one of the bosses, the frustration on the first wipe was just stupid.

Regardless of progress or no progress, the group needs the proper attitude. My current group has me real close to leaving.

And in my book, unless you are in the top 500 or so, raiding with friends > raid progression. I'm expecting a friend in my raid team to get kicked soon, and I may bail after that.

10 man was certainly easier at 30% than LFR was, of course you could communicate too... :x

Absolutely. I was texting bldavis today, and told him that while I've had some options to go to other raid groups, I have no desire to do so, regardless of progression, because sometimes, we just pull off the most bizarre of shenanigans, and said shenanigans are the most fun to me.

(Someday, I'll reenact how the server 2nd Ping Pong Champion fight went.)

i completely agree

while i do get frustrated at the derps and the lack of progression, i cant think about raiding with another team cause i wouldnt have the same fun i do with PK

that said, i do raid with lurkers still and they have some better progression, but it is basically the same fun atmosphere

Despite having had quite a few ship jumps this last month, I'll mostly agree - you can get in the bestest team ever, killing bosses with the might of the STAAAAAARE and still not enjoy it. I think if my original guild was still going strong, I wouldn't have considered moving, or at least would have kept a toon active.

That's also why I'm so exited with the latest team, as I found back the feeling of welcome I got from TK and Lethal, AND a raid spot to boot!
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

No jury duty for the next two years, aw yee!

Job is going great. I am hoping that by the end of may (maybe into june) I will have my debts paid and will be able to use my paychecks for fun things.

My current fun thing lined up when that happens will be a tattoo. I have the sketch done, but I'm seriously blanking on what style to go for, and once I find the style that fits the subject I have to find the right tattoo artist. The shop I went to for my last two I don't think can do what I'm hoping for. damnit I don't want traditional or realistic

That to... If only they would add it to the ultra's in game... A trample mode. "Tramples all units underfoot and kills them. Oh, and you run on after a Siege Tank in Siege mode hits you in the face." I dont think I would ever play something else again. Unless ofcourse, the changed the Vikings to a do a barrel run...

A new success for today: Managed to break our application in 4 ways, and replaired them within an hour after finding them ^^

I'll aslo agree with the friend sthing - also the reason I've decided not to leave <Lethal>, even though I would like to raid. If I can get an auxiliary spot on some team that fits my schedule, that would be great - but I'm also finding the freeness of my evenings satisfactory, and being able to level my 5th charatcer, play X-com, watch some netflix and generally be more avalable when planning meetings is great.

In our case it was too many people saying "yeah we want to raid, and be more progression oriented this time around", and failing to live up to it, combined with the usual star of expansion "problem" that "too many" guilds raid the first tier, making recruitment hell, combined with losing most of our raid core (both tanks, as I went dps, and the other tank stopped playing, with the tertiery wanting go back to dps, as well as .. well all our healers) - if we had had the core (tanks and healers) I think we would have gotten further and not imploded.

We imploded due to lack of dps :/

Get 2-3 weeks behind the progression of the rest of the server at the beginning of the expansion and it suddenly becomes extremely hard to recruit anything at all.
