Have you ever wanted to raid with a couple of guys who did the hardcore thing, have some server first achieves, and now spend their time obsessing over Star Wars and Queen?
How about raiding with a tank with an over-inflated sense of invincibility and the ba--er, insanity.. to back it up?
Does talking to a couple of women who speak in tongues and can’t give clear directions on a map ring your bell?
If so, then have we got the team for you!
Hi, I’m Ginness. Most likely, you’re reading this now because “Geriatric Explosion? Wha-what is this about?” and now you want to know a little bit more about this ridiculous name. Well, we’re a bunch of old players who are trying to throw together a raid team to push content. Some of us did some progression, some of us have some server firsts, and all of us just enjoy beating our faces against challenging content and chewing glass.
Our 10-man team is (optimistically) set to launch the 5th of February. We will be raiding Mondays, Tuesdays, & Wednesdays at 10:30PM (22:30) to 1:30AM (01:30) server time (yes, late-night).
We are currently in the market for:
-1 Melee DPS: Rogue preferred, however we are opening this to any talented melee-er.
-1 Range DPS: Hunter, Mage, or Warlock preferred.
Note: We are not asking you to quit your guild! You can stay where you are, be happy, have your cake and eat it too. OMNOMNOMNOMNOM!
Do we want to push progression content? Yes, absolutely. But, we’re not going to be dicks about it. We’re looking for players who are serious enough about their raiding to do the job right, do it well, but not so serious that they can’t have a good time doing it. We’re laid back, but we put pride in our ability to play our classes well and execute strategies properly.
Mistakes are bound to happen! Wipes happen. Sometimes people die. Sometimes the client acts up. We get it. We’re not looking for excuses, just move on from it in a positive way! We’re not out to yell and scream like kids fighting over …whatever kids fight over. I don’t know…iPhones? Yes; like kids fighting over iPhones. We joke. We chatter between boss fights. We take shots at one another; we’re all old friends and we’d like to keep that feeling.
But, my gear is terrible, Ginness! Yep. I’m well aware. Thanks for pointing it out. But, you’re gearing. It’s a process; no one starts with BiS in all slots. I may not have the best gear right now either, but I will. Not to mention that some of our other current raiders are geared to the teeth. You might not be the best dressed guy at the club, but if you got the moves then we can dig it. If you show interest, have the talent and mental faculties to back it up, and the want to be good that doesn’t turn you into an almighty doucherocket, then we know you’ll get there too. Feb 5th is some time off. Just keep making the good effort.
Good sense of humor. Good raiding ethics. Moderately intelligent. Reasonably tolerable ego. Spider Pride >8<!
If interested, feel free to contact Valodiere in game with any questions or concerns.
Do not contact me! I’m not in charge. If Valodiere isn’t on well, wait.

This sounds awesome and I feel like I know everyone you described. But....
we’re not going to be dicks about it ... We’re laid back
does not describe Ginness at all, I've done pvp with him! he's a grumpier person then Sin!
I'll still apply, and wish you all the best of luck, though. :)
^ All of this, because I said so. ALSO, for our rogue, we aren't specific on talent choices, spec, or otherwise. Keep in mind AGAIN, that you don't have to leave your guild to raid with us. And we also supply feasts, and ice cream.
You know, honestly, if anybody truly wanted to question our street cred/dedication, they could just happen to glance at the fact that in our raid I think I have the lowest amount of achievement points at almost 13k. On a more important note, my phone took 3 times to type dedication, and wanted to replace it with defication.
Tynave has 11000. But he's bad so we'll let that one slide.
Also. Stop telling your wife poop jokes via text.

Edit bump- opening melee slot to any talented player, though we'd really enjoy a Rogue.
I mean really enjoy it. Like, a fat kid with cake enjoy it. And not, ya know, fruit cake. I'm talking a German chocolate cake with a rich, creamy frosting, served on a hot, nude redhead model on the back of Falcor while Yngwie Malmsteen and Eddie Van Halen perform an epic guitar duel.
...yep. That much.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
