by forgetting that 10 man gets significantly less gear than 25, has a very high chance of gear dropping that no one can equip


Wtb tier shoulders. Or any shoulders for that matter.

Not exactly the best guild Thunderlord has ever seen, let's be honest.

GL in 5.2. I think we'll be right up there with you this time.

ehhh, while it's true that focus didn't always finish at the top in every xpac, focus has been number 1 or 2 for pretty much every single content release from bc to now. No other guild really had the consistency and longevity of focus with the exception of MAYBE ... TMM

Server kills so far:

Jin'Rocker the breaker:
1st: TMM
2nd: TMIRQ
3rd: Focus

Horrordon:
1st: TMIRQ (day 1)
2nd: TMM (day 1)
3rd: Focus(day 2)

Council of where the !@#$ do I stand?
1st:Focus
2nd: TMM

These kills were literally ten minutes apart, so It seems to be we are very close on the speed. I believe TMM was on day 3 and we were on day 2, but I know TMM is having an off week for attendance or what not so they are not at 100%, or might have missed a day.

Both groups doing well considering how bad the server looked at the end of last tier. No one has pulled ahead yet, hopefully we can have a larger chase for the server first this tier then the 2 horse race last tier. Best of Luck to TMM(not too much though ;) ), as well as TMIRQ( thought you guys might smoke everyone out of the gate that first night tbh).\

Lots of guilds hitting the gear check roadblock on that horridon kill it seems. Hopefully they will adjust the ten man version to make the dps requirement a little easier to overcome without outgearing the level of content we would expect from a 2nd entrance style boss.

Gratz on the kills. At this rate, it's looking like TMM's taking its name too literally.

This server hasn't had a guild that equaled Inquisition.

I was on detheroc for the times of inquisition and didn't get to experience that group. However from the impact they left on the players and the server they must have been a truly great group of players and people.

In terms of consistency, Inq pretty much crushed from start to finish in vanilla, yes, and the only other guild to even come remotely close in terms of content clearing was Tribute on Ulduar hard modes. No single clearing of one tier on this server will ever rival Inq's vanilla Naxx. There are too many variables now that make the game and your characters easier to manage, and it's literally not possible to go back in time and replicate the feel of Vanilla WoW without pissing off millions of casuals.

But sustained consistency/longevity on this server leaves MUCH to be desired. TMM and Focus have been doing that better than anyone else.

Explains a lot of the near reverence that many players have for inq.

In Inquisition, nearly every boss we ever killed was between top 20 and 30 in the world (Onyxia and Ragnaros were 8th and 15th respectively, but I wasn't a member until Vael in BWL).

In Tribute, we got a few top 100 US kills in Heroic Ulduar: not as good, but top 100 US isn't terrible either.

No other guilds in the history of this server have come close, relatively.

In Inq's case, there were no strategy websites, youtube wasn't around at launch and thottbot was full of useless "HUNTER WEAPON" comments. Completely different game (and internet, for that matter) altogether.

I would love to see Focus get top 100 US this tier. Hoping you guys get your butts in gear and clear the place already so you can bang out heroics next week. It would definitely attract more players to this server, something we need very much.

*edit

Nostalgia Comedy: We had a 1% wipe on Naxx40 Kel'thuzad which would have been world 8th kill. Unfortunately, we didn't kill him until the next week and it was world 32nd. I still have that video and it was from Heratli's point of view.
