Said no one ever!  ;D

It took us a bit, but we're back at 5/10 mythic! (It was an absolute steamroll tonight!) To top that, we also blew away some of our fastest kill timers! I'm very proud of this group, and cannot thank our core members enough. SG would have pulled out of WoW if it wasn't for you guys :p. The only regret I have is that I wasn't convincing enough for some of our prior members. A great bunch, and if they had only stuck around we'd be much further at this point. I told'em... "Trust me, I got this." They didn't believe me >_< Eh, neither here nor there.

Here's our new Mythic Gruul Screenshot. Good job SG-WoW. - TAKE 2!
"Great News Everyone!"

We're 4/10 mythic this week, with a 6% attempt on Gruul (w/ 2 down). Considering last month's fluctuation in playerbase, this is great news! I feel like we're moving along quicker than my initial projection, and thus have no doubt that we'll hit the 5/10m point this upcoming week. We're almost back on the bus! If there are any tanks out there looking to get into Mythic progression, we'd love to hear from ya! Full Ride (Paid Tx & Faction Chg)

In other news, Nettled (GM of Dauntless - US-Kel'Thuzad - 7/10m) got banned in Blizzard's recent mass-banwave. (Bro, you provoked this btw) He's apparently now playing on a rogue named Parse, and is still actively trying to poach our players and new recruits. Most recently he tried to pick up our new moonkin (Kineathetica) with something to the effect of "Why stay in a guild that is 3/10m and falling apart when we can offer you a core spot and 7/10M" (I guess that's how they got Merrytime, that seemed to have worked out well.) It's great to know that I have a new member, one that hasn't even been here a week, that pushed back this swill. The kicker is that Nettled is actually a past member of SG, he played on a priest for us towards the end of SOO, and then bailed on the game before he finished his trial. I don't know why there is so much ill will towards us, and sadly it looks like his guild is now following suit (re: general chat comments), the animosity sucks for all of us. I wonder if the members of Dauntless have good reason, or context for that matter, or if they are just conforming to fit in. I wonder what kind of person takes pride in being that way.

On the flip side, I guess I should be flattered; they want our players, and actively check out our website/wowprogress/etc. to see how we're doing! :) At least I'm getting some revenue out of em.

I'm not one for drama, and I feel like I'm being sucked down to a level where those that thrive off of it live. So with that, this'll be the last thing I say on the matter, it's a waste of time otherwise. Thanks everyone, and most importantly, thank you to the members of SG-WoW, your dedication to this group gives me "feels". :D

30 May 2015 - SG-WoW: Quick Update!

So, it's with great pleasure that I take this time to say that... "We're back bitches!" :D It took me a few weeks of recruitment and weeding out our pre-existing shitters, but we were able to hit our 2hr Heroic Clear + 3/10 Mythic this week (with ~40% of the group being new.) Time to pick up where we left off!

We expect MFlamebender early this week, and then a few attempts at MGruul.

Go Us! >_<
It's been a while since I last presented an update on our progression in Blackrock Foundry, which can only imply that we're struggling. To be honest... we are :). However, we're not struggling due to encounters being difficult, we're struggling due to our players not understanding the reality of the situations they've been placed in.

To dial back, and give everyone a quick recap of our recent events.
  • 4/9: SG-WoW downs 5/10 mythic, morale is high! Two bosses in the same night! We're having a great time. The following week has us working on Mythic Kromog.
  • 4/19-4/20: Totemterrist ninja-realm-transfers because he can't take the stress and pressure of being an officer. This move was quite surprising to me, he was someone that I personally invested a ton of time and effort into coaching; He knew he could ask to step down at any time. Unfortunately, he knew what he was about to do was hypocritical, and the lack of transparency and abruptness of his departure set off a small chain reaction that resulted in Artiemus, Fatfranky, and Sd leaving.
  • 4/21-4/23: Del and Max assess the situation, lay out recruitment needs, and set up next steps for the guild. Chance of recovery is quite good! Heroic clears happen as a recruitment effort, and we end up casually pushing into mythic bosses by the end of the week.
  • 4/14-4/27: We've picked up a Discipline Priest, Mistweaver Monk, and Holy Paladin. The only deficit from the prior departures is 1 melee DPS.
  • 4/28-4/30: Our disc priest has a concussion, and the mistweaver is having family issues. Both are out for the week. However, for some reason we still dip into Mythic on Tuesday. (We recognize that this was a HUGE leadership mistake.)

    Morale was super low after that Tuesday due to multiple wipes on Oregorger. Re: having sub-optimal DPS subbing in while some of our Core-DPS were on alts healing the group. Merrytime get's poached by Dauntless' "Fifong", telling him "we'll give you a core spot without trial". (What a cheap date)

    Dauntless' GM "Nettled", and his other officers begin aggressive attempts to poach from us. They start using false assertions that "your guild is done", and "this is SG's last week raiding, join us".
  • 4/30 -> Today: Dauntless still tries to aggressively poach from us, with little to no success. (1. They have perspective on what's going on here? and 2. as Celsh said this Thursday... "For a group that just got 6/10 Mythic, they aren't recruiting you for their core, they're only doing this to be malicious.")
    Know that Severity Gaming will never drop it's WoW Division, (regardless of how much it appears to toll on me personally). We're recruiting to get back on the pony for Mythic, and the cool part is... We don't need that much to do it.

The TLDR; "We lost some players, picked up some new ones, and as long as no one else gets fooled by Dauntless' below-the-belt tactics, we're in great shape!"

It's crazy how a two week period of pettiness can have such a perceived "dramatic impact" on people that have been playing together for months if not years. It's something I've see happen many times in WoW, perception of time is almost completely lost. I thank those that are still here because they didn't fall into that trap.

These past weeks have been an eye opener for me, and more importantly, they've been rejuvenating. We've lost players that quite possibly shouldn't have been here in the first place, and have learned more about what to look for so we can stop them at the door. And most importantly, I got to catch a glimpse of how dedicated my players really are. That no matter how bleak things seemingly get, they are here to play with SG, for SG, because SG is their family. You guys make SG what it is, and our 6 year track record indicates that no matter how shitty things get, we'll always push through. Thank you for being the best out there!\

Update: Add Pallybrick to the list of people that randomly bounced too. I love his petty comment towards me at the end "Have fun parsing at 10%".

09 Apr 2015 - SG-WoW: 5/10 Mythic

It was almost a complete WASH of a week.

We started Tuesday with crap attendance due to a lot of IRL issues. Was able to do our 10/10 heroic clear in just under 2 hrs, and then dove into a little bit of Mythic Highmaul. That wasn't a crowd favorite so we bailed 30 minutes early.

Wednesday rolled around and I was pleasantly surprised that we were able to clear out our 3/10 Mythic "farm". RE: Similar attendance issues for the same reasons as the prior night.

Thursday absolutely blew me away, initially things were looking "ok", but then the stars aligned... Fatfranky appeared out of nowhere (after totally bailing on his friends to play internet videogames with us) and I was able to snag Magezz away from his family. (read - he made his little cousins/nephews/etc sit and watch him play :)) Below are the results!

Everyone did a fantastic job!
