About the Leaders:
Rank: Free Company Master
Gaming history: I've been playing games for most of my life, back to the old Warcraft I days. I got into MMO gaming with Helbreath, which in my book is still one of the best PvP games I've played. I started playing WoW during it's stress test and only recently quit for good 2 months ago. I've lead a couple raiding guilds, one to 11/12 HM ICC 25m. After my leading days I decided to put myself towards high end competitive raiding. I had the pleasure of experiencing Top 10 US raiding, which I enjoyed very much for the fact downing bosses before nerfs were rolled out. Plans for this guild will be the same as I had before I left WoW; pushing for firsts and competitive rankings. Having fun of course while doing so! :P Quality over quantity is how I plan to run Modified. I'd you're curious about my WoW toon here it is http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/stormreaver/elvine/advanced Outside of MMO's I do enjoy RTS and FPS games. I'm also a live streamer on www.twitch.tv/elvinemod specializing in making gold in WoW. Please feel free to leave any questions in this thread or contact me via PM.
Gaming history: Zedversary has been gaming since age 5. He has played high end pve content in several mmos including EQ, WoW and AoC. (You can laugh at him.) Since late Vanilla he has been involved in different officer positions in family friendly guilds all the way to cataclysm before he decided that he wanted to do hardcore raiding. He had the privilege of raiding with the WoW guild Ascension who is Oceanic #1 and he was involved in many of their first kills in early Pandaria. You can check out his armory at http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/illidan/Zedversary/advanced.
Requirements for Raiders:
1.) You must be an active player and able to maintain +80% overall attendance on our four night raid calendar which is currently Monday, Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday from 8PM form up to 12:00AM EST. You do not have to be online any earlier then 8PM, but invites do start at 7:45PM EST.
2.) You must be a self motivated player with the ability to take and seek criticism. Your goals should include being among the best at your chosen class and role.
3.) You will need to be tolerant of the fact that raiding is highly dependent on class balance and as such involves potential bench time. We do not recruit anyone as a backup in Modified. Everyone on our roster will see playtime but we cannot guarantee anyone they will be in 100% of the time.
4.) You must be able to pay for your account and your internet connection without issue.
5.) Your computer and internet connection must be reasonably stable.
6.) You must have and be able to use Mumble.
7.) Modified is an adult guild. If your parents can unplug your cable before a raid ends or ground you from playing to enforce a bedtime or homework time, you need not apply.
8.) We want people who are social and interested in participating in our guilds culture as a whole. If you dislike browsing and/or interacting on the guild site and find yourself only logging on for the 16 hours of raiding per week, we may not be a good home for you.
9.) If you repeatedly find yourself overwhelmed with emotion from in game issues (loot distribution, raid composition, raid targets, sitting, or something similar) and need to repeatedly address these issues to officers to the point of the inane, we are not guild for you. We encourage feedback about strategies, performance, and leadership and we always try to give each player the time and attention they deserve but we are not looking for members who simply complain continually about anything and everything while contributing nothing to solve the problem.
10.) You should be a friendly player with a positive attitude. If you find that you cannot discuss raid strategies, raid composition, or player performances without whining at, condescending to, or berating your fellow raiders then we are not the guild for you. We require all applicants, raiders, and officers to be able to cooperate as a team and treat each other with mutual respect.
11.) Special symbols in your name can be a real pain for us and is discouraged in the names of anyone applying to Modified.
If you feel you meet all the requirements, without exception, we welcome you to fill out an application on our website.
How the Trial Process Works:
An officer of Modified will contact you if we decide to consider your application, usually by email or in game if email is not possible. If we do not contact you regarding your application within a week it can be considered "on hold" and we may reach out to you if a need for your class arises in the future. Once having contacted you we will establish a time and date for a Mumble interview where officers will discuss your application, ask you a series of questions, and answer any questions you may have. Once the interview has ended, we will inform you of whether or not we are extending you a trial or if we are delaying a decision if there is information we must follow up on. A typical trial will last 2 weeks which you will be tagged for the length of. After your time as a trial has finished, we review all feedback gathered and will make a decision whether to promote to full member rank. If you've made it this far and are promoted, congratulations! You are now a full member of our team.
What We Expect From Our Raiders.
Skill and Motivation:
Being a part of Modified means you have the drive to be on the bleeding edge of progression on and you are going to play your class to its maximum capabilities. We expect you to know your class inside and out, be informed of boss strategies, and excel when in action. If you come to raids unprepared and playing poorly, you are not living up to our expectations. Know your class, know the fights, and be prepared to be awesome when you come to our raids.
Modified has zero tolerance for drama and we pride ourselves on being a guild that is drama free. We expect those applying with us and those that become a part of the team to treat fellow guild members and others with a healthy level of respect. Everyone who wears our tag represents our guild as a whole, so we expect members to treat those outside the guild with some level of respect and tolerance as well. We have enjoyed a good reputation among our peers on Modified and that is something we would like to continue.
Modified uses a loot council system decided by officers for the distribution of our loot. Our intent in end-game raiding is to progress as quickly and efficiently as possible in the time we have each week and loot is distributed upon factors including raid benefit, attendance, performance, and player benefit. We try to involve each member in the loot council system by having “loot lists” where each member finds their best in slot and major upgrades and rank them in terms using the available spreadsheets and models. We take the time to read the math and theorycraft behind these to make the most informed decisions as possible and it is our hope you invest the time to take part in the system by making one.
You shouldn’t be in this solely for the loot. You will win some and you will lose some, but we will do our best as officers in making informed and fair calls while removing the negatives that plague fixed and auction DKP systems.
Attendance and Raid Times:
We want our active raid members to be able to maintain an 80% attendance with us. We depend on each of our raiders and it's expected (barring unforeseen events and emergencies) that when you will not be present to post on our forums or inform an officer ahead of time as time allows. It will be exceedingly rare (few times a year) that we ever push the raid beyond the finishing time and when we we do it is never more then 10 minutes.
Our raid schedule is:
(Subject to change)
Monday 8:00pm-12:00am EST / 5pm - 9pm PST
Tuesday 8:00pm-12:00am EST / 5pm - 9pm PST
Wednesday 8:00pm-12:00am EST / 5pm - 9pm PST
Thursday 8:00pm-12:00am EST / 5pm - 9pm PST
We do not run past our maximum finish time of 12:00PM EST and we do not raid any extra nights during progression. All of our raids include a 10 minute break halfway through the night. You will need to be online and ready to be invited to raid at 8PM but you do not have to be online before 8PM if you are already prepared.
We will also be aiming to raid less days per week once all content is cleared. We aim for efficient, fast progression and clear times, so once bosses are downed the goal will be to do weekly clears on a more efficient, shorter raid schedule of two to three days until the next content patch.
