Midnight Train is currently recruiting a few more players to round out our 25 man raiding roster.
Classes Currently In Need
All exceptional players are being considered, however, we have longstanding open spots for:
Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday, Monday - 7:30p - 11:30p EST, with raid formation beginning at 7:15p.
11/12 HMs in ICC. We are in the process of diving furhter into Lich King hardmode, looking for some more consistent raiders to fill out our roster to ensure future success in ICC. An average raiding week for us right now is 12-16 hours.
About Us and Our Raids
â€¢ We haven't pushed heavy recruitment in over a year and have always run a very tight roster. If you're tired of benching night after night because the GM wants to get his friends in over you or your class is bloated, check us out.
â€¢ An average raiding week with progression on the table is 16 hours. This may change a little (2-3 hours in either direction) depending on the time of year and whether or not there's a lot of new content available. Because we don't put in as many hours as other guilds it is vitally important for people to be on time, prepared and ready to go at raid start.
â€¢ Midnight Train has always been a very low profile guild. We do not push server firsts, we don't act like retards in general chat, we don't go out of our way to cause drama. If you're looking to be an internet celebrity then this is probably not the right guild for you.
â€¢ We use Loot Council to maximize the effectiveness of gear distribution. It's helped us a lot since switching from zero sum DKP over two years ago when we were hurting because some players were holding off on upgrades in the hopes of picking up one specific item. All of our officers are well trusted and we've had very few complaints based on loot decisions.
-Ventrilo and a working mic
-Stable net connection
-The ability to make at least 3 out of the 4 days of raids from start to finish (this is a very generous 75%, most of us make 100%)
-The ability to withstand criticism when it comes to number crunching.
-Up to date knowledge of your class, including but not limited to:
- Gems, enchants, and proper consumables/reagents
Because this has given us so much trouble the last couple of months, I want to add something here clarifying that last bit - if ever, at all, an officer needs to hold your hand or corner you on vent to talk to you about why you're not doing as well as you could be and how you can improve, you're not good enough. We're not here to babysit you. We're not here to play your character for you. If you can't be proactive, if you're not clear on what's expected of you, we'll drop you and find somebody else who's on the same page as the rest of us.
And last but not least, be classy. If you make yourself look like a jerk in general it reflects upon all of us - trade chat trolls need not apply.
If our guild sounds like something you might be interested in, head over to our forums and drop in an application (guests can post). Please note that we're looking for the classes listed specifically, but if you feel that you are an exceptional applicant regardless of class/spec, we will always consider your application.
You can get in touch with any of our officers either by PMing this account on these forums, or Quandary, Secksee, Crag, Chazzwozzer or Khazoo on our guild boards, or looking for Quandary, Crag, Secksee, Chazzwaller, or Khazoo in game.
