June Gloom

I'm not exactly sure what happened last night, or how or why it happened, but it definitely wasn't a pretty sight. Five Prince attempts in a row failed miserably due to unlucky Infernal placement and, more importantly, less-than-stellar play on the part of a good majority of our raid. It's like we showed up expecting easy Infernal placement or something, because when things started getting crazy, we looked like a bunch of chickens running around with our heads cut off. Players were running into Infernals trying to get away from Prince's Shadownova, and some were slammed by it anyway. Players who don't normally have a hard time healing were getting caught off-guard and couldn't top-off our tank in-time. Players who don't usually have an issue maintaining mana were running low early. Players who usually last through an encounter were dropping like flies. It was a mess. Thankfully, the guild did pull it together and managed to defeat him, as we usually do, very easily. It was just an off night, I guess.

So tomorrow, I'm not quite sure what to expect. Not sure if we will raid or not, but if we do, I'm hoping the guild brings it's A game. We definitely need to pull it together after today.

Oh, and I finally got my Netherwing Drake mount. I was totally torn between the Purple one and the Onyx one, and ended up going w/ the Onyx Drake after much help from Bixxie (thanks girl!). I'm very glad that's over and done with -- I can finally get to sleep early!

Gnite all. =)

Grats nub. I might be able to be on for a little of any raids that may happen tommorow, which should be hot.

well, you could always do what Gladiators does in raids when things go haywire...scream at each other in caps in officer chat and start threatening to kick people out or end the raid due to lack of being able to "follow directions a retarded chimp could do" lolz

although that might not be your style, although it does work wonders keeping someone on their toes wondering if at any random moment they'll be booted from the group. i did it last night with a crap tank we used from -War Lords-, i'm tellin you, warning them if they fuck up again and they'll be kicked out of the grp immediately when they need rep for something (or gear) improves their playing 120% hands down

btw gratz on your netherdrake!!

Heheh, well, we just kinda stepped back, took a short break, because obviously people weren't really in it, came back (I actually stayed out, for tacos XD), Jade made some adjustments, and viola.

Sometimes it's best to just hit the reset button and try again. =)
