[A] The Family Business LFM! 2 Days/Wk 1/8HM

90 Worgen Druid
Who is The Family Business?

The Family Business began in December 2004, several weeks after WoW went live, and has been a staple of the Burning Blade community ever since. We began raiding in May of 2005, and we are still raiding today with the same raid leader(The Asthole) and officer core from our earliest days. While initially a four day a week raiding guild, we have scaled back to two nights a week to enjoy the content as it's released and to embarrass the competition who raid as much as three to five days a week with similar or even lesser results.

Here at TFB, we're better than you, and we know it.

Why TFB?

TFB has been most commonly among the top 5, and for some time, top 3 guilds of Burning Blade in 25m raid progression. Further, TFB has a semi-casual raiding stance, and while we raid less than many of our peers, we still out perform much of the competition. With TFB, you can look forward to a shorter raid schedule (2 nights a week, 4 hours a night) but you can expect those 4 hours to be used to their fullest. We do not idle in front of bosses, we do not condone players who go AFK during trash repeatedly, and while we do take a short break half way through the raid, we never spend more than 15 minutes idling. That said, we enjoy a light, comedic atmosphere during our raids. We like to play the game to have fun, and raiding quietly for 4 hours is just not how we do things. Jokes aside, you can expect a very serious shift in attitude when it comes time for progression.

Raiding Information

Current raid schedule is Mondays and Wednesdays from 7-11 PM EST. No other attendance is required, but you must be able to reliably make these raid days. Those with volatile work schedules or real life situations which may make you unavailable to raid less than 75% need not apply. We feature alt-character raids on Saturdays (10m), a hardcore group to tackle future content ahead of the main raid if you're interested on Thursdays, and various events such as old-raid achievement runs or simply taking a bunch of schmucks to Orgrimmar to stir up some action.

Needed Classes/Roles

Rogue (Legendary Offered)
Death Knight

Additional Information

Below I provide links to a few choice youtube videos of our boss kills which include our ventrilo conversations. Should you take the time to watch them, you'll see a guild that enjoys raiding even after 7 years, people that actually enjoy being together for these raids, and an atmosphere that most individuals are quick to adapt to and fit in. We take the family in The Family Business seriously, and you'll be hard pressed to find any "drama" within our ranks.

Dear My-Other-GM,

Most of those youtubes are being all 404'd or MiA. First one (latest) works okay. Also nice RL voice.

To potential applicants: You must appreciate highly sophisticated humor to be in TFB. You don't have to have a sense of humor but you need to be able to laugh. I only visit occasionally off-hours so I don't get the full impact of their g-chat but the random conversations are amazing stuff. I'm sure there's lots of bathroom humor also but I tend to ignore those.

Oh raiding...yeah, I don't raid with them so I have no idea. But if they raid as smart and creatively as their brains work, they're amazing players. Of course they've been doing this shtuff forever so they better know what they're doing.

Thanks for the tips on the broken links, as well as the kind words on our humor, Vixie. Didn't see that a lot of those links got truncated.

Nice to see some of the old BB guilds still going strong. If you happen to need a holy paladin please feel free to let me know. I would give anything to have a reason to leave the server i am currently on to return to BB. Fyi guys i over-estimated people in their ability to play to the level of skill it takes to survive a normal day on our server. There isn't a chance in hell a single person from the server i am on would make it in a single raid from a top 10 BB guild. They would most likely cry and call you all !@#$%^-s. Particularly Astraeus.

You can always apply but you will not be guaranteed any sort of primary raid spot. If another hunter or DPS is MIA and you are ready to bring your game face, then MAYBE you will be brought in to raid at the discretion of officers. With Mists of Panderia releasing probably sometime this year, you never know what might happen.

i killed enst once in BRM.

Must've been a rare occasion when Enst wasn't surrounded by his healing harem. He was sooo hard to kill in vanilla AV. Remember those times when it was all BB in there? XD
