Butt hurt? That's odd, because after I logged onto an alt last night to run some dungeons, I had already forgotten about the conversation. Yet, you decided to get on guildox and wowprogress to check up on our guild, and try to find "an out." You guys really got us! One of us is butthurt, and I can tell you who it isn't.
I guess I'll clear this up.
Trade chat was talking about <SK>, and you decided to drop a "10 man strict" comment in, out of nowhere obviously to aggravate me, which earned the Al'akir comments.
Did I ever say you guys did it to beat us? Absolutely not. <Continuum> was never "racing" for Tier 11. That's not how we do things. We've always taken our time on the initial tier, building a solid roster, and begin "our race", for the 2nd tier of the expansion.
A brief history.
In BC, we were roughly 30th on server during Karazhan, but we had Server 3rd Access to Black Temple. In WOTLK, we were ~20th for Naxxramas, and achieved realm first Heroic Lich King. And again, in Cata, we were ~10th for BOT/TotFW/BWD, yet snagged the first 10 man strict kill of Ragnaros. This has been the standard of our guild since the first expansion of Warcraft.
What I did say, was JC dropped down to snag the realm first kill. Why dispute this? It's a fact. If that wasn't the reason, then why do it in the first place? Just continue chopping wood on 25 man and eventually you'll get it. One of the other 10 mans, probably Unity, was close to a kill. We weren't even trying. So, to throw the "lol 6 months" comment out, is useless. JC were first place in a race of one (lol Axis).
And secondly, as you said, you weren't even in JC when all this happened. It's a shame that JC has turned into this. Back when we first came to Elune, JC was 'The Guild To Beat'. The track record of excellence was there, they were the gold standard. Everyone had our respect. If we ever needed anything, Steph, Perc, Kaly, Ike, and all the others were there to shoot ideas off of. The competition was friendly.
However, this new wave of recruits after the 25 man guild broke down, has resulted to forum trolling, trade chat trolling, and trolling recruitment threads. I feel bad for the people like Perc, that are so well respected not only on Elune, but the entire Warcraft community. I feel bad that their guild tag is now being associated with trolling, and the like.
You're doing your guild a disservice.
JC 2005-2011 , Absolutely respected. One of the best guilds in the world, and an absolute pleasure to raid against.
JC 2012 , stop wasting my time, but the free bumps of our recruitment thread is always welcome.
Bumping for 2 Ranged DPS for the guild with the first 10-man strict kill of Heroic Ragnaros, Zonozz, East Drakes, Conclave, Sinestra, Ascendant Council, Maloriak, Valiona
