Focus: 10-Man End-Game Raiding
Server: Runetotem (PvE-US -CST)
Recruiting: Late-night raiders who are hardcore in ability, but casual in time. We are looking for players who may only play a few days a week, but have a high level of standards and match that with their own abilities.
Condemned is a World of Warcraft guild based on the Runetotem (US-CST) server that is focused on 10-man end-game progression raiding. We are a Cataclysm guild, looking to compete with hardcore progressing guilds in a casual time frame - emphasizing that quality is more important than quantity. We understand that having a shorter raid schedule will make it difficult to push progression, which is why we have high standards for our raids.
Since we only raid a couple of days of the week, we have high expectations for raid attendance. We do, however, understand that things come up and we ask that you let us know if you won't be able to raid for a time. Above all, we're looking to recruit people who will remain with us long-term so that we can build a very tight-knit group.
Attitude and intelligence go a long way, and even if you can pump out insane amounts of DPS or pull an entire instance and stay alive, if you can't carry on a simple conversation or if you talk down to the people we play with without offering genuine constructive advice, don't bother applying. Age isn't an important factor for us. If you can show up, perform well, and not act like a spoiled brat, it doesn't matter if you're still in high school or not. With that said, if you live under the constant threat of being grounded, or sent to bed early, then you aren't what we're looking for either.
Although applicants should be appropriately geared for current content, gear is largely a secondary concern to us. Rather, we are more interested in skilled players who are committed and dedicated to raiding content and plan on continue playing.
Raiding experience is expected, so we do require that you have at least a fair amount of experience in a raid environment. You should be familiar with any fights you've not yet done, past and present if a raid is scheduled.
We also happen to be extremely intolerant of drama. It has, undeniably, been one of the foremost reasons for the destruction of guilds in WoW. In accordance with our no-drama policy, if you are excessively whining, begging, fighting with others, flaming on message boards (including, but not limited to, our own) or doing anything that could damage the reputation of the guild, you will be warned. If you continue to disregard the warning, you will be promptly removed from the guild. Common sense and common courtesy are your best friends.
Condemned officially raids Tuesday and Thursday Nights from 11:45PM CST - 3:00AM CST. Other days will have optional raids and events where attendance is not enforced.
Loot is governed by Loot Council (involving all attending Raid Members - everyone has a voice) supplemented by an EPGP system to track attendance, performance, etc.
All raiders are expected to maintain peak performance and to minimize tunnel visioning. As such, conversations about external topics in public channels during focused events (progression fights) are discouraged as they tend to be a distraction. Paying attention to the event at hand is paramount to success, so external distractions such as television, music, and anything else that might impede the ability to dedicate focus to the event at hand are strongly discouraged.
We’re all part of the same team. Respect between the raiding membership is essential to maintaining focus on our primary goals. If a raider is having difficulty with another raider, they are encouraged to attempt to work out their differences in private channels, and failing that, request that an officer moderate discussion to resolve the issue at hand.
Raiders are encouraged to help each other reach their maximum potential so that the raid can progress as quickly and smoothly as possible. As such, rather than holding under-performing members in disregard, raiders are encouraged to seek out and help under-performing members do a better job. Doing so helps the raid.
Within the context of a raid, raiders may be given constructive criticism for skills that need to be improved, however, if rapid progress towards developing necessary skills cannot be demonstrated, a raider may be replaced by the raid leader or the officers with someone who already has the necessary skills so that the raid can progress.
