<GCR> seeking DPS & Heals for HFC and Beyond!

100 Draenei Paladin
Hi there,

<Giant Communist Robots> 13/13H and 4/13M are seeking multiple folks to join us for our Wed/Thurs/Mon 8PM-11PM server time raid team.

We've been a strong 10 man since the start of Cataclysm and before that a 25 man as far back as Burning Crusade.

Optimally we seek:

A single tank, preference to non-plate, but open to all possibilities, tank must be fairly experienced and able to communicate and work well with the other tank.

Multiple DPS, any class. Preference to ranged over Melee, lower priority to anyone on the Vanq token, because we have a billion of those.

We are also interested in any small groups or guilds stalled out and looking to move forward to better success.

I tend to err on the side of player over class. I'm looking for great players who want to join a guild making the move towards Mythic raiding in the coming weeks and months. That means I really don't care about your current Ilvl. Were you an old vet who can't find a guild because you've been away for too long? But you used to be great? You might be right for <GCR>. Are you a new player who feels like they could excel in a team environment? You might be right for <GCR>.

We raid 3 nights, Wed/Thurs/Monday from 8PM till 11PM server time, always server time.

Our website has recently undergone an overhaul.

You can find it here:


It has a streamlined application system. No need to create a forum account.

Or feel free to leave me an in game mail, contact me here or on GWW#6223.

Arrangements can be made for covering transfer costs if someone feels stuck on a faction and can't afford to move or whatever. Not fussed.

Thanks for your time.

What speed internet do you have?:adsl 2

Is your computer fully capable of running WoW at a decent framerate?:very much so

Tell us a little about yourself:I have been playing wow now for over 4 years consistly. I beleave I am a reliable person that is known to only miss about 1 or 2 raids a year if signed up which would only be due to unforseen circumstances. I never done any thing dumb like rage quite and am always willing to take good advise.

What do you like the most about your class?:charge and never haveing to worry agout things like running out of mana.

Would you be willing to respec if required?:yes

Did you know that the Autobot Skyfire was based on a Transformers toy named Jetfire, who in turn was a copy of the design of the SDF Macross/Robotech VF-1S Valkyrie jet/robot?

True story.

The Facts:

Server: Dath'Remar (GMT +10)
Faction: Alliance
Guild Name: Gíant Communíst Robots
Website: http://www.gcrguild.com/forums/index.php
Schedule: Wed, Sun & Mon 7:45 - 11pm Server or Thurs,Sun & Mon depending on team.

About us:

GCR raid teams are groups of 13 raiders within GCR that meet 3 times a week to see end content, down some bosses and have a laugh along the way.

Most of us have been raiding since Vanilla or BC and while GCR has been around for nearly 6 years these teams started raiding together at the start of Cata.

We love raiding. We don’t love the hours spent preparing for raids and we've set things up accordingly. So if you want to see end content with a core group of friendly folk without all the boring bits, then we're the team for you!

What we're looking for:

Current priorites:
- plate melee dps (pref warrior with protection offspec)

Our ideal members are:
- over 18
- reliable and punctual
- possess a working microphone and aren't afraid to use it
- have a stable internet connection
- skilled in the class they play
- previous raiding experience with a love of achievements

What we can offer:

- Level 25 guild with all the perks
- All raid repairs paid for
- All raid consumables provided (in exchange for 1 flask and a few fish each raid)
- Assistance with gems and chants
- A relaxed, fun and mature raiding environment

How does a raid group of 13 people work?

We work on a rotating schedule so you can have a night off, get sick, work late or dye your hair blond and perfect that Justin Beiber routine you've been working on… because we all have a life and, well, some things really are best left private.

Your nights off are generally scheduled in advance but we get that real life can be a tricky mistress so if something comes up try to let us know by 5pm.

Whichever way, there's no hanging around at the stone for an hour wondering if you'll get to raid, no fervent questions vanishing into guild chat. Your automated invitation goes out 7:45pm and we pull at 8pm. We are Robots after all.

I'm NOT a loot #!*#@ but…

None of us are loot #!*#@s but let's be honest, nobody is THAT nice. It's great to get some shinies from time to time and if you're a good player there's sure to a best-in-slot somewhere you've got your eye on. So how does loot work? Well on farm bosses you'll have all the loot you want. On new drops we take it in turns. We're a small team so you're generally only competing for loot with one or two other people at the most.

The only downside: "You take it. No, you take it. No, I insist you take it…" does tend to slow down the raid.

Yea, but what's raiding really like?

Our raids are efficient and fun. Wednesday night tends to be farm night. The rest of the week we spend on progression or achievements. One night a month we try to go back and do old-school achieves for that pesky drake that may have slipped through your fingers.

We don’t AFK after every pull and we don't spend ages discussing what went wrong between wipes. MOAR fish, MOAR pulls! Oh, and a quick foam sword fight with a sly shadow priest.

What about guild progression? How do promotions work?

Did I mention we were Robots? GCR has a pretty socialist structure. There's two Raid Leaders, two raiding teams - Decepticons and Autobots, a rank for social members and alts. You'll get promoted from your starting rank into a raid team after a two week probation and then have access all the guild perks just like everyone else.

Can my husband / brother / friend / mother join?

Yep. Once you pass your probation, just have them put in an app, tell us about your circumstances and we'll work it out.

Sounds great, what now?

Go to http://www.gcrguild.com/forums/index.php, fill out an app and we'll try to contact you within 24 hours.

For more information contact one of the following people in game:

Lumenactio (Raid Leader)

(30 mins before and after raid times are great times to contact these people.)

Looks like we need an Ele shammy. We are currently sharding all mail spirit gear, and it's annoying me. Plus we want your 5% Spell Haste totem.

True story.

Need someone ASAP.

What did you think of Transformers 3?

It was better than Transporter 3. Not as good as Rocky 3. Better than Nightmare on Elmstreet 3. Not as good as Toy Story 3. Better than Jaws 3. Not as good as Beverly Hills Cop 3.

Mostly it was nonsensical rubbish. But I've felt the same about all 3 movies.

I'm old school though. I used to come home from school every day and watch the cartoons in the 80s.

Me, Grimlock, not nice dino. Me mash brains!

Would you be able to look at my gear and tell me if it is good enough to bother applying? Obviously I would need to reforge for ele (I'm resto mainspec), enchant my weapon differently, use ele trinkets (which I have) and get rid of the resto tier gear, but other than that is it ok?

Yeah, we could def work with that. Really depends on your dps more than your gear. I've seen people in 353 gear out dps people in 359 gear (or higher), so I'm more concerned about your single and aoe dps on average in a raid setting (which you could mention in your app)

So please feel free to app. Or hit me up in game and we can have a chat or something before you do the app if you wanted to.

Being a dwarf is a big plus in your favor. Dwarves are awesome.

We're looking to fill ASAP. We'll be doing 3 or 4 bosses tonight (if the server reset doesn't mess us up) and sharding more mail spirit gear is really annoying!

2 more pieces of mail spirit gear sharded this week, including some tier from Occu'thar.

Slot still open. Needs to be filled ASAP.

5/7 now. Still in the search for an elemental shaman. Our kills are taking 2.243% longer than they should due to the lack of 5% spell haste.

It's annoying.

Updated to reflect that we will also consider an experienced skilled boomkin.

Bump for 6/7! Join us and see that big fiery dude smash baddies in the face, and then kill more baddies with subsequent flame waves!

Just kidding.


<3 our healers btw.

When they're not being baddies.
