The Future of Kitten Mittens

This is a copy paste of our homepage on kitten-mittens.enjin.com:

This is a notification that Kitten Mittens' 10m Heroic Team in its current form will NOT be raiding anymore in Cataclysm or during MoP.

We've had fun playing and raiding together and enjoyed the content.

Some of us are just sick of seeing those same 8 bosses over and over again in main runs, alt runs, and LFR. Others are taking a break from raiding for real life stuff while some are potentially quitting the game and do not see much point in farming heroics if they're just going to quit the game in a few months or weeks.

Some of us are diverging in our in-game goals in regards to what we want to get out of raiding and how hard we want to push towards those goals in regards to nightly time spent and frequency through the week as well as what level of game play we expect on a team. We all started very casual I would say and the majority of the group in its various forms the past year has drifted towards playing more and pushing bosses down but a heavier schedule like that isn't for everyone. So we finished out the expansion strong and we were pleased with how far we'd come from the original days in flea circus of kardone and rizar wiping on magmaw for hours each week with a revolving door of recruits until something stuck.

As far as who's staying and who's leaving? Some of us aren't even sure yet so I can't really give you a list you'll just have to ask. As far as what guild leadership will be in place going forward is to be determined in the near future.

A quick shoutout to the various members of the team over the months (sorry if I forgot you my bad) (sort of kinda in chronological order but just best guesses mostly)

Quite a change from the players we were then compared to now. Great job everyone for sticking it through the thick and thin of nearly constant recruitment and roster issues as well as a pretty awful composition before 4.3: no 10% melee haste for many nights plus the first few weeks in DS, absolutely no 5% spell haste unless it was a 2 heal fight where emuhh went shadow or I went moonkin. Some nights in t11 we did not have Heroism/Time Warp. We did not have a shaman on the team until Banric and that's when our bosses finally stopped dropping 3 or 4 shaman pieces a week at least in FL.

Myself, I enjoyed my time spent here but in the next few days will be transferring off to a new server as a part of a new team. I am sure I will enjoy the break from the stress that is raid leading and general officer duties so that I can focus on pushing my personal game play to be the best. If you're interested in chatting me up feel free to message me on here for RealID info or Kardone#1955 is my current BattleTag for when that system goes live (I'm assuming with D3 which I'll be enjoying). I'm also playing on the beta and enjoying providing feedback to blizzard in that. I've been trying to stream some so check out twitch.tv/kardone if you want. I will be only moving Banric off Darrowmere at first but most likely over time will slowly move over my other characters. Banric will be horde so RealID activities with him won't be an option for most of my friends but I'm happy to pug on offnights the rest of the expac with my DK/Hunter/Druid.

Its been an honor to raid with this team and down some bosses. Being a part of not only one but 2 realm firsts was amazing.

With that being said, I like turtles.

To everyone reading this if it hasn't occured to you as of yet. There are now a handful of raiders with 8/8H experience that may or may not wish to continue raiding. Speaking for myself specifically, until something more permanent, with MoP raiding potential, presents itself, I am available to help out with your raids. My capable raiding toons:

Meekah
399 ilvl Disc Priest
8/8H Dragon Soul
7/7H Firelands

Hakeem
395 ilvl Resto Shaman
2/8H Dragon Soul
6/7H Firelands

If you need a healer feel free to contact me in game.

PS you left out the realm drunk.

So what you're really saying is... good luck to SFOS and IOP as you battle for realm firsts next xpac. =D

Thank you for the shout-out. I had a great time pug'ing with you guys and am sad to see many of you going. Can't say that I'm surprised Banric is leaving since you're ready for higher level raiding and it's definitely a chore to find good people, keep them, and progress when the realm is as small and unprogressed as Darrowmere.

Curious to find out where you're heading and what guild so I can look them up on wowprogress...

Stating that Geemonty is raid capable is like saying Redssober.
