rumor is that the player limit was temporarily lowered to control lag during transfer and world event moments. Or something like that. It's no biggie.


oh yeah, hi jerks, let's be friends again.

Are you the same GS that infested Kel'Thuzud Alliance side right after release?

Considering that he listed his server as Mal'ganis I would be tempted to say no. I don't know the internal politics of Goon Squad these days, but I'm fairly sure that GS Alliance on Kel'thuzad and GS Horde on Mal'ganis are completely separate entities.

separate entities... we share website space, but that's the extent of it.

occassionally our hunters go and invade their hunter's message board and post some crappy thread about drugs, but that's another story.


to be fair, we're much larger than they are, though, sadly caught somewhere between a hardcore raiding guild and a casual kill the occasional new boss guild.

sargeras is now seeing ever growing queues each day now also. Does anyone know if they are going to continue with free transfers or will this be the only way to get off of servers with 30 minute log in queues?

Oh that explains why Ironforge looked 500% larger than from when I quit. I want to eventually transfer my Priest off that shithole of a server to Altar of Storms :/

So did you both come from the same beta group?

I don't think a lot of current GSH or GSA come from the Goon Squad Closed Beta, as has been explained earlier in this topic

I was an open beta player myself.

here's the easiest way to explain it:
let's say SA has about 1,800 people who want to play wow.
1000 of these people roll horde on 'ganis, 150 sounds about right for the original size of Hooligan, 50 go to other guilds, and the rest join Goon Squad.
500 of these people roll alliance on kel'thuzad, most of whom join The Goon Squad
300 or so go play on random servers somewhere.

things start friendly between hooligans and GS, people level, I /friend darkidol, and things are happy. Then someone gets their feelings hurt and ruins relations between EJ (right when they changed to EJ) and GS. GS undergoes a series of splinters, but still maintains around 800 members. Everyone kinda ignores The Goon Squad on Kel.

so, in open and stress test beta everyone was either on server #4 or server # 29 (?). at release we split up to Kel'Thuzad and Mal'Ganis.


note: numbers are made up to give a general idea, not specifics.

I remember near release looking on one of the WoW census sites and seeing goon squad having 500 members and I couldn't imagine how that was even remotely possible.

we maxxed out at around 950 or so. now we're down to an estimated 650. we don't know because the guild tab doesn't show more than 500 people.

A family friend demonstrated how to cut a penny w/ a pair of Cutco scissors. While I'm pretty sure it's illegal, I was impressed at age 8.

Thanks for answering the question.

Everyone kinda ignores The Goon Squad on Kel.

I wish I could have. Those dicks were everywhere for a while.
