Topic Draka, then and now?(Alliance Edition)
I miss getting ganked by Wot in AV, but mostly I miss getting ganked by Blackfeather in Org.
Does anybody remember who summoned Jrdevious to the floating rock in hellfire p before he had a flying mount? I think it was Fordtempwn but i'm not for sure. That may have been the funnies thing I've seen on this server. I miss the wicked weasels before Trapist grew up on us and made cdm.
Mostly I miss the pwnies. I know they're not alliance but eat me, I do what I want.

Sooo many new players sad not seeing recognition to the guilds that started the server, Drake has definitely lost its touch after Vanilla. Pre-Xrealm bgs were where it was at though.
Fighting against DoG, Bene, etc in WSG. Where flag carriers would be full tier 2, or when whats his name(wow I can't believe I don't remember his name atm, dwarf warrior) got the first Ashkandi, and Karios was the first rank 14. Fighting Smokey, Wot, Gaxx, Ayaya and all the other pvp players. There are a ton more that I remember fighting just can't remember their names. For instance the gnome lock that would run around nekkid but with a helm, and still !%%*@@@@ people. Those were the good old days.
Still remember when DoG and Bene, and a few others would farm Ogrimmar for honor yelling out "Sorry I just need Honor" hard to say what they had to even type to translate to that.
The alliance guilds back in Vanilla definitely were the strongest on the server, too bad this server fell off during BC.
Doesn't so much have to do with alliance, but I still remember how it took us damn near until AQ came out to get our first TF on horde side......
Probably thinking of me, while I was on the server in BC, I was in the top horde guild and had the number 1 ranked 2's and 3's on our server. The only teams close to our ratings were Smokey's teams, of which we would beat when we faced them =P
Anyone remember The Battle of Thandol (sp?) Span in 2008?
We were so stupid we organized a world pvp event on a bridge connecting 2 zones hahah. I think we nearly (or maybe we did) crash the server.
Jrdevious, Kameykame (or whatever the name is)
Guilds I remember from a while ago....Children of Czarticus, Lords of Czar, The Illuminatus
Lots more I would probably remember if I saw the names, same thing with trade chat trolls and stuff
Loved this server during Classic/TBC/Wotlk...it's so different now....I remember occasionaly having to wait in a queue to log into Draka back in the day...nowadays the cities are empty.
Jrdevious stole my agility sword back in ZG.
Jrdevious stole my teddy bear when I was 5.
Kamelynna flirted with underage children.
Czariticus abused me when I was a noob.
Monster Militia ran Kara.
A demon ate all the noobs outside SW.
Zombies infected SW, and I was glitching multiple people during that incident.
I kited a big dragon boss to SW 5 times on my hunter.
I glitched a Gryphon to swim to the waters limits when you could avoid fatigue.
I kited more stuffz and more people died.
I kited a demon dude who turns immortal for an hour to the middle of Shattrath.
I was well known and hated on my hunter. But many of my haters are gone.
Name started with an O and ended with an A... let it be known... or don't Idc XD
I showed this thread to Fenicks and he wanted to get his 2 cents in.
Fenicks here, I was the GM of Serious Business, and then Swagger for god knows how long, probably like 2 years total time. I started in 2005, I was randomly running around doing instances with guys like AMNESIA and CHAMLEON (Deeps Paladin) and we basically had no idea what we were doing and died to trash mobs constantly.
We started doing battlegrounds, I eventually got invited into Sinister and then we were off. I was grinding out GM – I was actually (not Karios who is still my BFF today) the first rank 14 on the server, followed quickly by Deep’s paladin, and then Karios. After that I was so sick of battlegrounds I don’t even remember who or what came.
The early iteration of Sinister was run by a small group of friends – Stigmas, Jkay, and Gaxx. They were cool guys and stoners from Florida. About as shady as they come, used to give all the best gear to their own characters and generally use everyone in Sinister as pack horses to get them gear so they could be loud and link cool purples in Ironforge. I don’t say this in a mean or bitter way, I’m pretty sure they (we all were) like late teens early 20s and no one really knew how to act properly.
There was a second group of movers and shakers in Sinister – the Michigan kids (Quicky, Kellaris, Tranar) – Quicky was basically the raid leader, main tank, and just generally we progressed because he was ‘good’ at leading raids. There was an argument, Quicky got kicked out of the guild, I left at the same time, and oddly enough all of the main raiders all left at the same time.
Over the next couple days we reformed and much to my chagrin everyone wanted me to be guild leader. I was a rogue and by about your 6th month at raiding you basically just try to eat chips and AFK in the back while everyone else DPSes the trash mobs, so I didn’t really feel like I ‘should’ be leader, but everyone liked me well enough and I was less of a purple linking turd, so that started my meteoric rise to power.
So basically I credit our progression for Quicky (then Deep) being awesome raid leaders and you can see from some early posts in this thread how absolutely effing insane Deep is. (He has a business now – go buy his stuff (http://www.ultrasabers.com/)
If anyone actually read this giant block of text and finds it interesting I will go into further detail, but I’d be amazed if anyone really remembers this stuff.
I showed this thread to Fenicks and he wanted to get his 2 cents in.
I found that part quite funny Fenicks. If that really is Fenicks. That Florida bunch composed of Jkay, Stigmas and myself, gave loot to people who were good. Of course we gave loot to ourselves, but we also geared out people who were going to help the guild move forward, AKA Quicky/kellaris/tranar/deep/yourself lol/ etc. We formed the guild and I was pretty much the guy that recruited everyone in that guild. I got Quicky and the michigan boys, I would recruit other smaller guilds who had decent players in em and merge them into ours back in the MC/BWL days. But anyhow, if that is Fenicks, how the !@#$ are you doing lol.

Man, I find this thread and re-read it every so often and it's always awesome.
I was just a kid, like 15, what seems like so long ago now when I started playing this game, with Draka as my first (and only) server until like 2009 way back in '05.
I wasn't much of a real raider back then, more a warm body for when Azeroths Elite was short, lol; but I loved every minute of it. Of course, raiding at all on 56k, and using ventrilo... that was a bit rough to begin with haha.
My old old Warrior was Toxiclife (Frickin' emo teenagers man, I tell you), then renamed Miharu, who still dwells on the server to this day.
Favorite memories? Would 'all of them' be too sappy? I know, being so young and wanting to impress everyone in the guild, to mixed affect, I farmed a tonnnnnn of herbs, like that was my characters purpose haha, and I became elixir !@#$% for a couple people willingly =P
Edit: I doubt a lot of you remember me, I was kind of a no name. I remember many of these names though, and thoroughly enjoyed reading all of this in detail. If anyone does remember me, I'm open to getting back in touch, lemme know =D
I remembered my days back during vanilla in draka, i had only two best friends that i always hang around with lol back than i was Airhunter in the guild The Guardian Angels. reading this thread brings back alot of good memories i had here
60 Orc Warrior
I recently came back to WoW and happened upon this thread. It's crazy to see people posting that you played with like 10 years ago. The best times I had in any game were with the Sinister/Serious Business guys. I transferred my character but left him as he was at level 60 so maybe we can get back together and run MC.
