<Confused> Recruiting For Cataclysm Raiding
Diaz didn't seem to realize that VV collected every server first in SWP, as well as being the first guild to complete a bear run. Consider the fact that the guild wasn't even formed until CKD/Nightfall had everything but Vashj and Kael dead in SSC/TK, and that's pretty astounding.
Having a huge role in both CKD and VV during that era of the game, I can say with 100% confidence that VV was a significantly better guild from top to bottom. Often times in CKD, we couldn't kill a boss like Vashj or Kael (after they were "on farm") unless every Druid had a rebirth, every Shaman had an Ankh, and all the Locks had a soulstone active on our suspect healers.
Also, I don't even know how anyone would put Tribute in the conversation for TBC, their only server firsts in T5 were Lurker/Morogrim as they got more people to finish the old attunement process before CKD. They weren't even first on Nightbane, Gruul or Magtheridon. Granted they were the best guild w/o question for most of Wrath, but were a step behind in TBC.
Regarding Nightfall, they were a solid guild throughout TBC. They never outright dominated any particular dungeon but were a model of consistency.
Well, that's enough "cool story, bro" from me. Time to go save the world.
