The Horde Solution - MoP Bounty Contest

Nearly a decade ago, World of Warcraft was released, and with it came a huge new environment and a vast improvement over other games of it's like. Upon release, there were no incentives for the rare PvPer; no pretty mounts, no impressive titles, no amazing gear, no honor for which to buy trade materials; all you earned was the words "You have slain Nagi." in your combat log, and the grand satisfaction to go with.

Then came the Honor patch, implementing a ladder system for the most determined players allowing them to distinguish themselves with a title and epic gear. This led to constant struggle for power in the Hillsbrad Foothills, Alliance and Horde constantly battling with a single goal: murdering each other for those shiny gold points. For a time, it was good. Then, battlegrounds were released.

Battlegrounds allowed players to queue up against the opposite faction in a wargame: the victor receiving a hefty sum of honor and bragging rights against the other team. After weeks of sleep depravtion, Mountain Dew consumption, and a lack of social life, one could claim the right to wield a High Warlord's Battle Axe or Grand Marshal's Claymore, and turn the heads of your allies and decapitate your enemies.
But not all was great about the introduction to battlegrounds: many would forego a match against an equally coordinated team in favor of fighting a pick-up group, afk'ing from the game without any repercussions. World pvp stagnated: Hillsbrad was empty aside from the stray lowbie or lone soldier trying to spark an old flame. Progression in the PvE side had kicked up, and players had given up on the ideal of playing on a PvP server in favor of spending six nights of the week in Blackwing Lair.

So, the guild of <Displaced> (many of which formed the core of <Reverends of Swagger>) came up with a solution: The Horde Solution. A bounty contest: a great list of war criminals with a bounty on their head: 5 gold (no small amount back then!) for each kill on a marked Horde player outside of a Battleground, and a grand sum of 500 gold to the player who completed the list first. For a time, the world of world PvP was bright again on Firetree, and the rogue Chillz of <The Lucky Strikes> claimed the pot, dominating the contest by venturing into Orgrimmar alone to find the cowards who would not leave their own city unless it was by a warlock portal.

Now, with the release of Mists of Pandaria on the way, what better time than now to try to breathe some life into this dead server than by taking the life from the filthy Horde?

- You will receive 20 gold for posting a unique screenshot with you delivering the killing blow on a player in the mentioned guilds below. Only the player who lands the killing blow will be awarded the gold. Warbands are encouraged! but you will have to split the gold amongst yourselves, or fight for those killing blows!

- All kills must be outside of a Battleground or Arena. Open world only!

- Bounty is increased to 30 gold for level 86 players, 40 for level 87 players, 50 for level 88 players, and 100 for level 89 players until a Realm First! level 90 is earned. All bounties after this point will be worth 20 gold regardless of level.

- If the player who earns Realm First! Level 90 is Horde skum, he/she will have a bounty on their head for 1000g for the next week. The contest will end on the next Tuesday after release of Mists of Pandaria.

Here are the Marked Guilds.
Any player in these guilds that is level 85 or higher is an eligible bounty.

  • <Pie Chart>
  • <MouseClique>
  • <ONE>
  • <Prominent>
  • <Liquid Adrenaline>
  • <Sphinx>
  • <Shadow>
  • <No Life>
  • <C C C P>
  • <WHO CARES>
  • <RAGIN CAJUNS>
  • <Cox Clan>
  • <DoG>
  • Nagi*
  • *500g for every kill on Nagi. Camping is encouraged.

    However, you Horde scum, there is a chance for you to make your own bounties yet! While you have your own crimes to answer for, there are indeed those more vile than you.
    I will pay 10 gold per unique screenshot for the deaths of those in the following Alliance guilds, same rules as above:

  • <Waradin Trainer>
  • <The Art of PvP>
  • <Noobs>
  • A note: if I suspect you of rigging the contest (killing a friend or your own character on opposite faction over and over or anything of the sort), you will obviously not be rewarded for your attempts and not be paid for any future kills, be they legit or not.

    The contest starts with the release of Mists of Pandaria! I will attempt to be active up until then and along release night, but with my military schedule, I can't guarantee it. If you have any questions about the event, send me a mail in game or leave me a message on the <Reverends of Swagger> forums: http://www.weneverforgot.com/forums/index.php

    Baconn...you must be softening to the HEART some in your old age or something. Figured with all the history between you and NAGI that his bounty alone would be closer to the 1k mark. If I was NAGI whom I know very well and have had the pleasure to raid with over the years, would be saddened the bounty was so low.

    Counter offer that bounty and any SS of BACONN with his head face planted into the ground will be paid 5K, PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS CHUMP!

    I well give you DIBS for the bounty contest once again as I look forward to it, makes the grind of leveling somewhat entertaining at the least per say. Hopefully I see you on the GRID IRON but probably like any other time the COWARD you are never runs alone.

    SEE YAS ALL IN GAME SOON!!

    I think you mean "PROPS" dibs doesn't even make sense in this instance. I guess I shouldn't be surprised Nagi doesn't seem too intelligent either, just stands to reason he's friends with morons.

    Says the guy on the completely overbalanced population side...

    Good luck with the bounty Baconn, personally I don't think even the release of MoP and our RoS standard M.O. will breathe life into this game/server.

    Considering that the guild coffers aren't limitless and my pockets aren't very deep, I have to be somewhat frugal with the gold and I can't possibly put a much larger bounty for such a simple task.

    Hypocrisy at it's worst.

    No Life closed it's doors nine months ago, Baconn. Just a few alts in there. All the old school players have left the game for good.

    I was a little surprises to see DoG on there too. I guess all those battles for the Black Temple summing stone are still fresh on people's minds

    No Life is on the list on principle, being it is one of the few guilds that remains from pre-bc that had many members on the original bounty. And on the offchance that any alts end up playing with the tag.

    The few times I remember any pvp with DoG ended up with me laughing, so speculate from that.

    Seems like some good fun.

    I do request that I'm put on this list as well though.

    Once cross realm zones start allowing me to move around firetree with a group, I will still represent Waradin Trainer.

    Also you may want to build up some hate for a few more Alliance guilds. Like I said most of these guilds are dead, unless Art of PvP has risen from the grave yet again while I was away.

    Although I do get a kick out of how much you rage against these dead/dying alliance guilds.
    It's as if you put yourself at the high ground when at the end of it all we're still just slinging mud at each other in a video game.

    Happy hunting.

    <3 I'm sure those that hopefully chose to come back to play MoP will appreciate you remembering them.

    I need Javin or Fingol to come back...doesn't feel right having my alt as the GM.

    Horde comrades, the Alliance are proposing war! In my 4 years on Firetree, we have fought side by side in the Great Christmas War in 2009, and countless times have we dominated the streets of Stormwind. This shall be no different. The Alliance want war, and war they will receive! It is but now that we must answer the calling and take arms against the Alliance aggression.

    The lands of Azeroth have been all but deserted, crickets chirping in South Shore, fighting between the two factions has all but ceased. But is deception. They swine Alliance want our guard let down, and all the while they plan for war! We will take the battle to them! Gank every last one of their weak and pitiful soldiers. War is upon us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
