Topic [A] Contingency Plan [Defunct]
I'm honestly confused as to what your goal is? Are you strictly 10 man or asking players to app to help you create a 25 man team? Or do you want an entirely separate 25 man team within guild allowing the 10s to push progression?
I'll make it short. Running 25s has its advantages. Despite inherent disadvantages it's something we intend to explore and eventually excel at.
Individual 10s are and will run until the point where fast-paced progress is present in both. For the latent group, we've made continual efforts to update and upgrade its roster.
Once said fast-paced progress is evident, we intend to make a serious attempt at a transition.
If you wish to discuss this, always feel free to contact me either in-game or at our website.
Bump for the sheer fact that we shower on a daily basis.

Hmm... Alumian, Sov, Noctowel and Pulse xfered to "green grass"...
/friend osteoporosis -- Player not found. Surprise!
So long, Alliance guild of Patch 4.2! I hardly knew ye. You served us well, like Avalon before you -- or was it Shadow and Light? Relentless Dawn? Outer Edge? No... Decadence? Guess that was back an xpac...
Wonder what the Alliance guild of Patch 4.3 will be.
GL Reforged with your new members, I hope you find what you're looking for. Next time maybe consider coming here instead of bringing us horde side? We have worgen! They're fuzzy. And... uhh... gnomes?
P.S. For ambitious alliance-side raiders, consider joining a guild that won't abandon you next patch. The following have shown consistent progression and relatively consistent membership for at least 2 expansions:
Heroes and Legends, Imperium, and if you like achievement points: Gypsies and BigDamnHeroes.
I'll miss you.

You're missing Mourningwood, Rectangle, and Beaz.
Though you're right, it does take more than 1 guild to actively keep Alliance relevant.
I'm very fond of the fact that you compared us to Avalon--not because of their merits but because of the truthful nature of the comparison. Establish guilds are stagnant. They're so praised for their consistency, but as this forum has made evident before: consistency is only a virtue if you're not a screw up.
What was the basis for the praise we received? Our progress. Relentless Dawn was a sister guild to this extent--small, fresh, and for a while full of energy. I bring them up though because of their name--Relentless. For our short existence it's a trait we displayed without end.
So then, it seems Alliance was run by two completely different types of guild. The old, stagnant and consistent--on the other end the new, dynamic, and short-lived.
On one side, you have a voice that can constantly criticize 'cause they're constantly there. On the other side, the ambitious and at times cocky that receives this criticism. Both always eating at each other.
From a veteran's standpoint, it's hell. What makes this worse, those that resist forward movement then choose to further criticize those who stood for it and fell.
If others rise to fill our void as we did for those before us, please don't stand in their way. Halting the forward march of time is a sin in my eyes. The old are like the old are--stubborn. The new, much the same. The reasons, completely different. However, if someone is actively getting done what your efforts can only dream of achieving on their own--help them. As I've asserted before, it'll take more than one guild's efforts to give life to a dying Alliance.
TL;DR: We tried, you didn't help. Let it be a lesson. Don't let this repeat itself again.
