I regret to inform you that at the conclusion of raid tonight, Edge of Aggression will be transferring to another server. The Alliance side of Uldaman began a slow decline starting in Cataclysm. We’ve watched as the foundations of the alliance slowly disappeared (Nexus, Wrath of Medivh, Point of Authority, etc) and hoped that other guilds would step up and take their place. Unfortunately as guilds die on alliance side, the talented raiders transfer away or to horde side. In Mists of Pandaria especially, the economy has declined drastically on alliance and for us it was the final straw. We can’t afford to pay our repair bill and purchase raid mats because the volume of goods bought and sold on the AH is so low. Uldaman alliance can no longer support a 25-man progression-minded guild.
I came to this server over 3 years ago because my RL friend had been in EoA since BC. I came here because I respected what Edge of Aggression was able to accomplish and the strong legacy it had. I’m the fourth GM (my RL friend being the 3rd GM) and I take my responsibility very seriously to continue the successful tradition of this guild that was started by Nillian on July 2, 2006. In fact I’ve become friends with Nillian and met him several times IRL. I am committed to this guild through the end of this expansion and it just kills me that I can’t “fix” the Alliance side of Uldaman. Trust me, I tried :(
It is unfortunate because the horde side is doing great. Uldaman the server is ranked #65 overall (out of 250 servers). Vital, DFL, and Immortalis are all in the top 1000 world (top 200 US). The economy is fine, things are going well. I trust that Uldaman will continue to succeed as a server long after we are gone. I’m just sorry we won’t be a part of it.
On behalf of myself and the guild, I want to thank everyone for making the guild’s 6 years here memorable. Whether you revered us from BC, thought we were elitists during Wrath, or had no idea who we were in Cata, know we valued each and every interaction. We wouldn’t be the guild we are today without the strong support from the server we’ve had. I want to wish my friends and colleagues the best of luck Quillathe of Osaes il Shyr, Madchaos of SLA, Dexedrine of Sufferance, Zelinei of Audacity, Pro & Xal of Vital, and Viveka, Nooby, & Napalm of Immortalis.
This was a hugely difficult (and expensive to me personally) decision and I have the utmost respect for the people on this server. The only request I have is please don’t follow us to the new server for trolling purposes. If you must troll us, trash talk us, or share your opinion, I welcome it in this thread.
