WoW Guild Skunkworks @ Balnazzar :: WoWProgress - World of Warcraft Rankings and History
Who we are:
Skunkworks is a guild for stellar players who can not or do not want to commit to the time-intensive raid schedules of traditional "hardcore" guilds. Many of our raiders have come from top guilds but have discovered that things such as their wives, children or high-octane careers take up more time than slaying internet dragons for 20+ hours a week will allow. If you want to kill <Expansion Endboss>, but your newly acquired significant other, job, child, puppy doesn't understand that "lame fantasy thing you do," then we might be what you're looking for. We raid Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7-11 PST, even after patch releases and during progression races and have done so since our inception. That's right, just 8 hours a week. The guild was formed to take advantage of some of the "casual friendly" changes that were brought by WotLK and have successfully pushed the limits of what can be achieved by an amazing group of players on a casual schedule.
Who we expect you to be:
We are very protective of our guild environment and selective in recruitment. Applicants will only be considered if they demonstrate above-average intelligence, exemplary skill, a thorough understanding of game mechanics, a high level of maturity, a strong command of the English language, and above all a complete and total lack of epeening, douchebaggery, asshattery, and anything else that would make you unpleasant to be around. We all get paid to deal with idiots, why should we pay to spend our leisure time with them as well? If that sounds appealing, and you meet our admittedly high expectations, then I can unequivocally promise you that Skunkworks will be the best online nerd experience you will ever have the pleasure of being a part of.
How to apply and our EZ-mode application template:
Apply via our forums (Skunkworks :: Balnazzar). Private applications can be sent to our officers.
Next, tell us as best you can and in whatever format you think will be most persuasive, why we should want you as a raider and guild mate. To be taken seriously, applications need to include (but are not limited to):
- Prominent links to relevant armory pages
- A guild history with reasons for departure
- The reason(s) you have chosen to apply to this guild
- WoL parses
- UI screenshots or fraps footage
It is impossible for your application to be too long or too detailed. We like stories. We also understand that not everyone is a Pulitzer Prize winning essayist, and that some people may find an open format intimidating. If that's you, then be sure to include what we ask for above along with an exposition of your awesomeness, and if your application warrants it, you'll get a chance to impress us in vent.
Also, feel free to talk to one of our officers in game.
