Where To Find Us:
Check us out at (a Guild Launch account is required to post to the site, anyone can read-only): http://OpenSource.guildlaunch.com/
Most Valid Information Is Where?:
To keep track of posts I will not heavily update this original post.
Instead I will post a new reply whenever there is an update to be given; this post will only have basic information - like how to contact us, typical FAQ, etc.
Please read our most recent post for the most valid information! (I have a table of contents of all replies from me at the bottom of this post.)

About Us:
In production and development, open source is a philosophy that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details.

When the founding members and I created this guild we set out with a goal of creating a community where many players could call home. This community was engineered to have Raiders, PvP'ers and Casual players all happily playing the game together. While we focus on raiding, we also give equal attention to our PvP and Casual player's ventures. The guild thrives because of our members, and therefore that is what the guild heavily invests in. A group of people can accomplish extraordinary things, we aim to do nothing less than that.

All additional information about our guild can be found on our website. Including details about the guilds other areas of interest, PvP, Casual Play, etc.

Raid Times:
[Server Time for Bloodscalp = Mountain Standard Time (MST)]
Tuesday (10-Man Progression Groups) - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
Wednesday (10-Man Progression Groups) - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
Thursday (10-Man Progression Groups) - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
Friday (10-Man Casual Group) - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
Saturday (10-Man Casual Group) - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)

Other Guild Event Times:
We, week to week, have other events planned aside from our PvE raids. These events are planned by Officers and/or other Members. Sometimes they are PvP groups, sometimes they are old content runs and sometimes they are achievement groups, but they are always fun!

    Update - as of 04/05/2012

    As of 03/28/2012 Open Source celebrated their first month of being a guild!
    Wooooo!
  • While the first month is behind us we have already learned a lot about properly maintaining a guild and applying the best practices for future endeavors/decisions/procedures.
  • As a gift from the Officers to the rest of our members, we celebrated this occasion by giving every member a Winterspring Cub - http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/69239 (not much but its better than a Ancona Chicken).
  • We appreciate everyones effort and enthusiasm in the guild and helping it become a great community. Its a great place to call home, and its a great feeling to know that you matter to everyone.
  • To Business:
    We are seeking more members for our 25-Man progression raids (times/days detailed in original post), any DPS that wishes to apply to the guild please do so (or speak with an officer in-game, anyone rank 2 or higher). http://OpenSource.guildlaunch.com/
  • We are still accepting casual players that just want a guild to do something while also having supportive guild members that can help coach - we are very active.
  • We are still accepting PvP players that want to focus on PvP gameplay. We are hoping for guild rated bg's one day but need to recruit more players dedicated to making that a reality.
  • We are still accepting PvE players that want to focus on PvE gameplay (10 mans, more than likely) but would not be qualified for our 25 man progression runs (some people have bad computers, and we want to give them a home still).
  • Check us out, we have a great community so far and there is always something to do.

    10-Man Dragon Soul
    We have added a new consistent raid to our schedule, for those players that dont get to come to our 25-man progression runs this dragon soul run will be ran on:
    [Server Time for Bloodscalp = Mountain Standard Time (MST)]
  • Sunday - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
  • Monday - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
  • If popular enough with current members and members joining we can always add more consistent raids to our schedule and run two raids at once.

    How To Join:
    We ask that anyone that wishes to join submit an application on our website (you'll see an "Apply to Guild" link on the left side widget titled "Membership"). Through this application we can get to know you a little bit plus, if approved, give you appropriate access to our website.

    A requirement of being an Officer of this guild is to read and adhere to our Officer's Code Of Conduct charter (available for current members to read on our forums). As the guild grows we are also promoting qualifying players to lead the additional players in whatever ventures they are joining for. We make sure that the guild is properly maintained.

    Update - as of 05/01/2012

    Hi everyone! Time for our monthly update.

    Highlights:
  • We appreciate everyones effort and enthusiasm in the guild and helping it become a great community. Its a great place to call home, and its a great feeling to know that you matter to everyone.
  • Our 25-Man raid is making progress, not in boss kills but in giving new members knowledge and helping everyone gear up. Knowledge like how to heroic boss fights, how to maximize their dps, gem as best as possible, reforge as best as possible, etc.
  • Our 10-Man raid, raid formed as of 04/22/2012, has made good progress so far in the 10 man environment on Hard Mode fights. We are currently 5/8 (with a hagara kill as of 04/30 st), and we continue every sunday and monday.
  • We plan to merge our 10 man back into our 25 man once the 25 man group has covered enough knowledge and gear needed to get everyone on the same page to push forward in 25 man hard mode kills (but a lot more work is to be done).

  • To Business:
    For our 25-Man raids, in order to prepare for the summer blues, we are recruiting DPS and Healers that can pull their weight in a raid.
    Here are a couple of requirements:
  • Open to suggestions, if the suggestion results in improvement
  • Be able to make every tues/weds/thurs raid - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)
  • Be able to pull enough DPS or Heal enough as needed in heroic mode content
  • To apply, please look at the bottom of this post for instructions. Thank you.

    10-Man Dragon Soul
    We have added a new consistent raid to our schedule, for those players that dont get to come to our 25-man runs this dragon soul run will be ran on:
    [Server Time for Bloodscalp = Mountain Standard Time (MST)]
  • Friday - 7pm MST until 10pm MST (Invites go out @ 6:45pm MST // 10-Minute break at 8:30pm MST)

    Hi everyone! Time for our monthly update.

    Highlights:
  • We appreciate everyones effort and enthusiasm in the guild and helping it become a great community. Its a great place to call home, and its a great feeling to know that you matter to everyone.
  • Our 10-Man raid, raid formed as of 04/22/2012, has made a little further progress - on May 23rd we defeated Heroic Warmaster Blackhorn in the 10-man environment and currently are 6/8HM DS 10-Man (separate from the team below)
  • Our 10-Man Raid, raid formed as of 05/06/2012, has made good progress - on May 28th we have defeated Warlord Zon'ozz and Yor'sahj the Unsleeping making this team now 3/8 in heroic mode DS 10-man. (separate from the team above)
  • Our 25-Man Raid has made no progression past gearing up players and helping them learn the encounters that are new to them
  • As a gift to our members, we gave out a ton of Cat Carrier (Bombay); while it is not a hard to obtain pet its better than nothing! http://us.battle.net/wow/en/item/8485


  • 25-Man Dragon Soul
    As most of MMO's veteran players know, when seasons change or other high profile games come out we see a drop (or rise, depending on the season) in the amount of players online.
    With that being said we see a heavy amount of fluxuating attendence in our 25-Mans raids that go on Tuesday and Wednesday. While we have not given up hope on a 25-Man raid every week we are realistic; if there is not enough people online to do a 25-Man DS we will take how many ever are online and do 10-Man Dragon souls instead. A 25-Man raid is always our first priority while in the end we will make sure to get our members in on some DS action that week!


    10-Man Dragon Soul
    We now have a total of three 10-man DS groups going on a consistent weekly run.
  • Group 1: This group's goal is purposed with teaching new members how to better play their class and teaches the normal mode fights of Dragon Soul. This run goes 8/8 NM every week. They run Friday and Saturday at 7pm until 10pm (server time) with a break at 8:30pm
  • Group 2: This group's goal is to progress as rapidly as possible to improve our guild's ranking on this server. This group goes 6/8 HM every week and we put a lot of attempts on new encounters. They run Tuesday, Wednesday, Sunday (effective 06/12/2012) at 7pm until 10pm (server time) with a break at 8:30pm.
  • Group 3: This group's goal is to progress as rapidly as possible to improve our guild's ranking on this server while giving those a place to raid that could not fit in the Group 2 10-Man. They run Sunday and Monday at 7pm until 10pm (server time) with a break at 8:30pm.

    Hello; hope everyone is still enjoying the summer!
    Thanks for taking your time to read about our update. GLHF

    Highlights:
  • We appreciate everyones effort and enthusiasm in the guild and helping it become a great community. Its a great place to call home, and its a great feeling to know that you matter to everyone.
  • Our first heroic DS group has finally downed 8/8 encounters in Heroic Dragon Soul, woo!
  • Our second heroic DS group has recently downed warmaster blackhorn and are racing against the clock to clear DS prior to expansion hitting.
  • Open Source and Unrivaled recently teamed up to do a 25-Man raid made up of our top 10 man teams plus others that qualified to fill a spot. We were able to get 6/8 Heroic Mode bosses in the 25-Man Dragon Soul environment in our first and only week while only have 5 total hours in Dragon Soul. Unrivaled is a great guild and we are lucky to have had the opportunity to team up with them for a lockout.
  • If anyone wishes to join our guild please contact Setonas ingame so he can answer any/all questions that you may have. We are recruiting players that want a good community to belong to.

  • 25-Man Raiding:

    Hello,

    Excited for Mists of Pandaria? I know we are!

    Thanks for taking your time to read our monthly update. GLHF

    -Setonas

    Highlights:
  • We are proud of our members and of our achievements as we started so late into the Cataclysm expansion. We've got a good group of people here and hop to do more great things in the future!
  • Our second heroic DS group has downed 8/8 encounters in Heroic Dragon Soul, congratulations to them!
  • We clear heroic DS weekly with two 10-man groups.
  • If anyone wishes to join our guild please contact Setonas ingame so he can answer any/all questions that you may have. We are recruiting players that want a good community to belong to for MoP.
  • On August 28th we had a Guild Meeting discussing Mists of Pandaria and created a YouTube video to share that meeting with anyone that wishes to listen (link to that information below).

  • 2012-08-28 Open Source Guild Meeting:
    While it is not much, I thought it is better than nothing to help contribute to Bloodscalp's public education on the changes coming in Mists of Pandaria. Enjoy!

    Original post on Open Source forums: http://opensource.guildlaunch.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=8663047&gid=254241

    25-Man Raiding:
    25-Man Raiding is no longer our main goal. We realize that Bloodscalp's ecosystem doesnt have competitive 25-man guilds and because of that we have shifted our PvE focus to 10-Man environments. While focus has shifted we do plan on conquering 25-Man content, just not as a priority over 10-Man.

    10-Man Raiding:
    Focus has shifted so 10-Mans are our guild's PvE priorities. We are working to have three 10-Man progressive raiding groups in Mists of Pandaria (aside from normal mode only runs for casual raiders).

    PvP Endeavors:
    It would be fair to say that we are a PvE focused guild, but to say we are a PvE only guild that doesnt care about PvP is a false statement. We care and want to become better known in the PvP world and are working towards doing just that.

  • We ask that anyone that wishes to join submit an application on our website (you'll see an "Apply to Guild" link on the left side widget titled "Membership"). Through this application we can get to know you a little bit plus, if approved, give you appropriate access to our website.

    As a side note - Open Source's two 10 man groups, and our players waiting on StandBy for raids, combined to form a 25-Man raid this past Tuesday (09/11/2012) and fully cleared 25-Man Dragon Soul on Heroic difficulty.

    We will make a post on our website by tomorrow evening: http://OpenSource.guildlaunch.com

    Update as of 10/01/2012

    Hello,

    We are excited to bring you our first update since the launch of Mists of Pandaria!

    Thanks for taking your time to read our monthly update. GLHF.

    -Setonas

    Highlights:
  • Before the end of Cataclysm our guild was able to fully clear 25-Man Dragon Soul on Heroic difficulty multiple times, for us this officially completed our goals for that expansion. While we started late as a guild our aggressive goals were met.
  • We started off the Mists of Pandaria expansion with four of Bloodscalp's realm first level 90s (the fourth was added by guild invite).
  • We currently have 36 level 90 characters in guild (Source wowprogress.com - made a chart if anyone would like to see http://bit.ly/UCbtjH).
  • We had the realm first Zen Master Medic achivement earned.
  • While we will always consider players wanting to join our guild for raiding purposes, we are currently not openly recruiting. If you are interested we suggest you submit an application. We will post a mini-update about our recruitment status in the weeks to come.


  • Realm First Achievements:
  • The first achievement earned of this expansion was the Realm First Zen Master Medic on character "Curssed".
  • The second achievement earned was by Pavlov for realm first 90 paladin.
  • The third achievement earned was by Krazykiller for realm first 90 hunter.
  • The fourth achievement earned was by Setonas for realm first 90 warrior.
  • The fifth achivement earned was by Razzarn for realm first 90 shaman (was not a guild member when the achievement was earned but showed interest in the guild and through a proper application was accepted into the guild).


  • 10-Man Raiding:
    We are working to have three 10-Man progressive raiding groups in Mists of Pandaria (aside from normal mode only runs for casual raiders). Currently we have enough level 90's for three groups but we are not running all three to start, many characters still need to spend time gearing up prior to participating in a raid.

    PvP Endeavors:
    It would be fair to say that we are a PvE focused guild, but to say we are a PvE only guild that doesnt care about PvP is a false statement. We care and want to become better known in the PvP world and are working towards doing just that.

    How To Join:
  • We ask that anyone that wishes to join submit an application on our website (you'll see an "Apply to Guild" link on the left side widget titled "Membership"). Through this application we can get to know you a little bit plus, if approved, give you appropriate access to our website.
  • If you wish to not submit an application and instead talk to an officer then feel free to do that as an alternate option.http://us.battle.net/wow/en/guild/bloodscalp/Open_Source/roster?sort=rank&dir=a
  • A requirement of joining is to read and adhere to our Guild Member's Code of Conduct charter, located here: http://opensource.guildlaunch.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=29495227&gid=254241#29495227
