Zul'Dare Realm 'For the Horde'

Greetings.

No polls were killed in this thread.

The Guild

I'm going to help form a guild. It will be called <The Filthy Casuals>. The purpose of this guild will be a multiple. In the first instance it will be a casual and social guild designed for mature, relaxed people with an abiding sense of humour that don't take themselves too seriously. It might raid, but that's not the be all and end all. It might PvP in BG's and killing that prick Fangorm Staghelm, but that's not important right now. What this guild will appeal to are people who:

  • Level up in their own good time and smell the roses and eat the mushrooms on the way
  • Want to explore all of Vanilla WoW and test the boundaries (literally) of the realm
  • Think that levelling their professions is as important as levelling itself
  • Understand that fishing is nearly as important as downing Kel'Thuzad
  • Are here for the PTE long term
  • Want to make money legally on the AH, form cartels, spread their experiences to guildies in-game and in general, become filthy rich casuals.

You get the idea.

Why isn't this on the guild forum then?

Good question. Because we have to think of the bigger picture. From the very start of Crestfall we've been pursuing a simple goal, that we would have a PvE realm from server start. We've been fortunate in that the devs have been sympathetic to this dream, hence Zul'Dare. Since this was agreed we've been working on a number of other things to try and ensure that we maximise the PvE population. Getting the RP section on the forums is a good example of this. After all, if the realm is all-inclusive then you are maximising your potential.

At this stage however, the workload now shifts to us for two salient reasons. The first is that PvE is the poor relation of PvP on private servers. While we don't know what the ratio is, we can make a guess that the population on the PvE realm will be ~60% of its bigger PvP brother. The second reason is that on PvE realms there is always an historic imbalance in favour of the Alliance. Our best guess will be 60:40 in their favour.

In essence then, the PvE realm will be gimped in numbers (but still very healthy) and the Horde side on Zul'Dare will be gimped still further. With this natural imbalance it means that those of us who want to join the Zul'Dare horde side are going to have to be high on quality to make up our lack of numbers.

So what's the plan then?

We may be small in number but we will make up for it because we'll be more organised and resourceful than anyone else. In short, we will actually have a plan. In relation to our faction on Zul'Dare we will have the following tasks to achieve:

  • Use the forums to encourage as many players as possible to roll horde on Zul'Dare without being pushy and obnoxious
  • Act as a support network for new players and guilds in relation to assistance in quests, levelling, equipment and information to make the user experience easier without spoiling their fun
  • Tie in with the top Horde raiding guilds to supply them their mats and consumables at fair prices so they can concentrate exclusively on raid progress
  • From day one, start on the AQ war effort to ensure that the Horde (at least) are not found wanting in fulfilling our side of the bargain
  • Ensure that at the very least, Horde PvE guilds have a chance with server firsts in AQ40 and Naxx as opposed to our Alliance counterparts but in particular, Kul'Tiras
  • Do our damnedest to make Zul'Dare the best realm ever in vanilla WoW (retail or PC) and continue this through all expansions
  • Make RL friends throughout this great community of ours that lasts the years ahead.

Final Thoughts

We can't do this without the community. I'm guessing based on previous threads that there is a genuine interest in this. We're kicking this off now before Beta so we can get an inkling if it's worth pursuing, so let us know what you think, good and bad. There's a placeholder launched on the guild forums just to get first dibs on the name. We'd like to see an Alliance equivalent whom we'll call The Casual Filthy's to replicate what we're doing here and for neutral AH action.

PvE has always been about community. Let's reach out and snowball our realm.

Sounds like the kind of guild i'm looking for. I hope to get in on this.

Except: (and I know this is a deal breaker for you) I can't stand fishing in wow. I know. It's just not for me.  I'd rather grind a thousand of the same mob then spend another nano-second looking at that GD bobber. 

So I suppose Outstanding now has me on ignore... 

Regardless, (Time willing)mob grinding for skins, 5-man'ing dungeons for recipes and the like, repping...that's where my fun comes fun. Count me in, if you can deal with my "angleing challenged" self.

@Ugondiss We can make exceptions. We understand that for some in Vanilla, fishing is a grind too far.

Let's see what the general level of interest is and then we'll proceed.

Suggestion: change the name to <Filthy Casuals> to avoid estranging players who take stylistic errors very seriously.

The article should not be included in the name; the United Kingdom is not The United Kingdom and the New York Rangers are not The New York Rangers.

Why not? Let's see what people think at the time

Do I get a spot on my ele shaman? :P

Yes, Elicas. I can't remember actually ever seeing an elemental shaman in real life, then you always did like a challenge. We take all sorts of alliance scum people here.

I am joining this guild. I will be active on the live servers, and maybe also beta.

I would like you to join this guild as well, so the horde can be successful and we can progress together.

Thanks for your interest. See you in game.

Absolutely love the idea and the name. Fits 100% with my ambitions for CF. Regarding name, I would keep The Filthy Casuals just because 3 letter abbreviation looks better than 2. TFC sounds good to me.

This is definitely something that interests me.  One of the pieces I miss most from the Vanilla and TBC era of this game is the sense of community.  If we can get this ball rolling and bring more people that share this idea, I don't see Horde having an issue finding the players to join the faction.  A community starts with a few banding together.  And it will be up to us to reach out to others in hope to make this community grow.  This Guild's ideology is just what we need.

We specialise in n00bs. They are usually happy just to be here, the rest of us are bitter and twisted.

We noobs are important. We are the core of the game. We keep the game alive and kicking, we make the pros feel even more pro, we are the heart and soul, we are the majority. We are the skeleton that keeps the game intact, we are the reason for games to be alive!

Rejoice, all noobs! We are important. We are life, we are everything! Games could be alive without pros, but games die without new blood and noobs!

Welcome, fellow noobs. I salute you, respect you. You are the future.

 

Thank you.

  - thimo, the noob

I am sure a lot of you have geared toons on Kronos 2, but I am getting the itch and am going to level up a shaman to pass the time. If anyone would like to level as well let me know!

The Filthy Casual's sounds like just the place for an old hardcore raider, who wants to experience things a bit more relaxed this time. 😉

I would love to be a part of your community.
