Brief Guild History: <Uprising> of Aerie Peak was formed as a raiding guild in the middle of The Burning Crusade. Like plenty of guilds, <Uprising> fought its way up from nothing and went through multiple leadership changes, improving dramatically along the way. It wasn't until Ulduar that <Uprising> broke into the Top 100 US raiding scene, thanks to the tireless efforts of new leadership. In Tier 11, <Uprising> pushed into the Top 10 US bracket for the first time. Unfortunately after that, Romoreas--the guild manager, raid leader, recruitment officer, and one of the main tanks--had to take an extended break from WoW. Instead of spiraling into oblivion, <Uprising> decided to call it quits while still at its highest rank. Several of <Uprising>'s members from this era still reside in Top 5 US guilds to this day. (If you're interested in historical specifics, please check the information on WoW Progress.)
Romoreas decided to return for Mists of Pandaria and subsequently "remake" <Uprising>. Recruiting didn't start until three weeks before Mists of Pandaria's release date--and only six veteran members returned.
TO SUMMARIZE: OUR GUILD WAS FORMED THREE WEEKS BEFORE MoP'S RELEASE WITH ONLY A FEW VETERAN MEMBERS. WE WERE STILL ABLE TO CLEAR CONTENT AND BE COMPETITIVE WITH GUILDS THAT HAD STABLE ROSTERS FOR MANY YEARS.
The same leadership is in place that took <Uprising> from a US 70th guild in Ulduar to consistent US ~10 kills in Tier 11.
Now that the current tier's progression is complete, we are interested in strengthening our roster and further improving our performance in the next tier.
DO NOT LET YOUR PAST PROGRESSION, NO MATTER HOW LACKING, HOLD YOU BACK FROM APPLYING.
I guess you could call me an 'old-school' raider. I'm interested in raiders that have the qualities that a majority of raiders used to have:
-Not being selfish; putting the guild before yourself.
-Fast learning curve.
-Being able to think outside of the box.
-Self-motivated learners; people who aren't afraid to admit when they mess up; people who will do everything in their power to fix their mistakes. Basically, don't make a million excuses about why you hit a Wind Bomb on Wind Lord Mel'jarak.
Do you have the traits listed above? Are you one of the best players in your guild? If so, apply today!
