It's official: TFB will be transferring over to the US-Sargeras server on March 14th. Burning Blade has been our home for a great many years, but it is clear that as the game ages, Burning Blade alliance continue to dwindle and we are the only real raiding guild left for our faction. As auction house prices become inflated, on-server applicants all but completely stop, and a total lack of Pick up Group activity wear on our players, it's time to recognize that staying here will only cause more problems in the future than taking the risk of moving the guild to a more active and healthy server.
It's been a great 8 years here, and TFB never would have become the guild it is today if we hadn't had the hilarious and skilled set of players when we first formed on-server. I have no regrets in my choice of server selection from the start, but it's time to move on if we want to continue playing the game to the fullest.
To everyone left on Burning Blade: It's been a fun competition, and we've had an especially good time showing off our skills as many guilds whom raid a bit more struggle to stay ahead, or even keep up. We hope everyone(as in the horde guilds, because who the !@#$ is left on Alliance?) continue to thrive on what will probably become a horde dedicated raiding server, and best of luck to all of you. I would especially wish luck to Unholy Trinity for being one of the top US guilds, AoF for being around as long as we have, and Hero for being the most competitive at our bracket. Any alliance/horde players who want to join us on Sargeras are invited to join the guild as a friends and family rank to simply hang out and take part in any kind of casual guild fun (LFR, world bosses, etc).
I'll always remember the times we started a war in Splinter Tree Post in Ashenvale, or rousing a mob in the Cross Roads. We came to Orgrimmar more times than I can count to just rabble up some good old fashioned world PvP. The memories we've made on the server are irreplaceable and I hope we made things as fun for you ugly hordies as you made it for us in those early years. While the focus of the game changed for us over the years, we always knew we could take a group over to your capital and relive the days of the "Typical TFB Zerg". Now we go to a server that has a non existent horde population, much like alliance on this server, and it's a shame that we'll probably never see open world PvP again as long as the game exists, but it's simply time to realize the game is about killing dragons instead of the war in Warcraft. Hey, at least those dragons have some shiny loot.
Take care Burning Blade, you've all been mighty fine.
That's a new one.
Great video. Awesome memories of TFB's server wide fear. I remember people literally hiding in Thrallmar when they'd see a TFB member in Hellfire starting !@#$, because they knew if they killed one another 10 would show up.
Holy crap, I remember that!
Anyways, you stay classy Burning Blade. And even though we're moving to a new server, I'm pretty sure the Child Lords of TFB, those no lifer sons of b**ches, STILL won't get past the first 2 molten giants. Much thanks to Astrainus and Dorf for the many memories on BB!
PS: Blackwind, we need to progess! Please carry us again! <3
