Cairne back in BC

I don't know if any of you still troll these forums, but looking for some of the people I used to play with way back when.

My toon was Icywrath.
I was in Disorderly Conduct with Ruckus as GM.
I was GM of Aftermath and Mike Vicks Dog Pit (That got squashed rather quickly)
Saw Kue get the mount
Saw Kue xfer like the very next day
Watched Reckless and Onslaught self destruct.
Watched just about any guild that went sort of deep in BC raiding self destruct.
There were so many good people on that realm, but after years and years character names and RL names are escaping me.
People I am looking for: Ruckus, Shockz, Phearme and a few more

Anyways, share what you remember of those days and maybe we can all find some old friends.

I've never been raider so can't speak much for the raider community but do remember a few. Kirri was born 3 hours after Cairne went live, 27 Feb 08. It was a blast to be a part of a server rising out of nothing. I remember Capital (Orc) was the first to 70. TenAngryCats was first on Alliance. I do remember Phearme posting quite a bit here. The whole thing with Kue was a shock wave through the raiding guilds when he duped so many into giving him so much time and effort then he bailed. So many guilds blew up over constantly wiping on content and trying to recruit enough hardcore raiders to progress on a server that was essentially a leper colony of casuals. Lady Vashj was a breaker for a few as I recall from all the inter guild sniping that went back and forth. Many raiders transferred off server over recruiting and poaching issues trying to keep a solid raiding guild running. People who rerolled here with new toons (no transfers for first 6 months) generally had no commitments on old servers, i.e. serious raiding guild schedules, were trolls who'd burned their bridges, or just didn't care. Not a target rich recruiting pool for raiders. One I remember for being pretty much a grumpy elitist was McNurthick of Raided R. It's funny to think it's almost been 4 years now.

I was around at the end of BC and got to see guilds like Onslaught and Moogle Mafia self destruct. I was Alliance back then and had a Balance Druid. I remember the headache over Kue duping so many people. Been in a lot of guilds, seen a lot of different things and a lot of different dramas. I like the Horde on Cairne, but our hour was at the end of BC. By the middle of Wrath, we were non existant.

It's sad but oh well :( Being someone who is unable to raid or run dungeons at the same time as everyone else (I'm 6 hrs ahead of server time), I've always been into my PvP or Loremaster stuff as it's something I can do by myself. So there's really not much point of a server transfer :(

I started playing in Wrath, and got into a guild called <Ascension> relatively quickly. We were pretty solid, as far as I remember, but we always kind of looked at guilds like Tempest and Onslaught. Saw Horde side fall apart, start my own guild <Requiem>, and saw Alliance side fall apart.

Been here for a little over 3 years now, seen quite a bit.

Started playing in like April '08 here. I remember the Tarren mill / Southshore (Auberdine / Crossroads) raids way back when and and how Melina would always seem to show up and kill us alliance... fun times.

I have seen a bit, tried to play horde a few times, but guilds I ended up in were usually dead, so just stick to the alliance side. Still playing with at least one person I met when I was a little level 30 shammy.

I recall Capital and Matik racing to level 70. I even recall some minor drama as some psycho in our guild was "stalking" Capital and his "girlfriend" constantly sending them tells and calling him names... the stalker got demoted in guild and got a 3 day ban from a GM iirc.

I was here about 2 weeks after the server came up. Thought I would never stop hearing people talking about Cold Blooded...

OK, ok, what about CAIRNE BACK IN WOTLK? Here's some great stuff that happened:

- Huge swaths of the raiding community quitting/transferring
- Thaltor trolling trade chat
- Cybering with beatitudes atop the violet hold
- Ulduar

What am I missing?
