Stands in Bad is recruiting!
Posted by Amber Teasdale in Stuff and Things on February 11, 2011
So here I was moving this 10 man guild from LK into Cata, and I sort of collected people along the way, right? I mean, I was lazy as hell and didn’t do a recruitment post or anything but I had some people poke me and go CAN HAS GUILD and I was like aww, sure and before I knew it I accidentally the whole thing. Which is to say I accidentally ended up with almost two whole 10 mans and while the occasional benching is cool and all, the rotational nightmare that I made for my RL is sort of absurd.
So! Stands in Bad is recruiting to fill out said second raid group so that we can have twice the amount of pervy, silly fun.
But Amber, aren’t the new people just going to end up on the B team and suck at everything?
As much as I would love to shove Kotakh in a separate group so that I never had to listen to his smart assery during a raid, I’ve been stuck in the B raid before and I won’t condemn even Kotakh to that. For one, having a B team means we have to have that many sucky people, and we don’t. For another, I have more than 9 other friends in the guild as does everyone else, so you can bet there’ll be some flow between the two groups. I’m not worried about it impairing our progression either. We’re only in our third week of raiding and have 5 bosses down already–despite the heavy rotation (seriously, at least half the raid was new).
Well, what do you need?
In short: Anything, really. The way my hypotehtical roster is set up right now, we need 1 ranged, but if we get a tank, then one of my tanks can go back to shadow priesting, etc. 1 ranged (or tank) will bring us to a full 20 people (I told you, accidentally the whole thing).
Of course having exactly 20 members is a sure way to fail, so we’re actually recruiting one or two extra–another healer, another ranged, etc. We have no mages or boomkins, so ranged of those flavors would be most awesome. This will mean we’ll still have a rotation, of course, but it’ll be a “sit every now and again” type thing versus the “raid every other week” situation that some of us have going on right now. I’m not going to over recruit again I swear, but I don’t want to have 1 raid group not go sometimes due to numbers.
Regardless of what you do, if you’re really interested, go ahead and apply. Hybrids of course would be awesome (tank/DPS, heals/DPS, heals/tank) for flexability, but I’m not going to pass up a player that looks like a good fit because you only fill one role.
When do you raid?
W/Th, 7-10 pm CST. The raids will run simultaniously.
Do you have an awesome tabard?
Fuck yes we do.
To speak to me about joining Stands in Bad, just send me a long rambling e-mail about it. I hate forms and the like. As long as you include a link to your armory and don’t use “u” instead of you, I promise I won’t bite.
Amber, your crew sounds awesome, but I hate PvP servers. Like, I hate them so much, no matter how awesome you are, I won’t go.
That’s okay. I mean I’ll sit here and be SAD, but I can understand. As it so happens, I can also offer you an alternative! My friend Pixie Stix is recruiting as well, and he’s on a PvE server. He used to be in our crew and I miss him bunches, but if I can’t raid with him anymore I can at least inflict some of my readers on him, right? Just be sure to call him Pixie Stix. Their recruitment post is as follows:
Aggramar-US, Alliance, 10-man
Contents: Reasonably Sane Guildmaster Who Does Weird Voices (no, he doesn’t
hear them, he just impersonates them), Mature and Patient Guildmembers, Maximum
Fun, Lack of Guild Drama, the All-Important Tabard & Bank Tabs, Ventrilo (to hear
aforementioned voices), Raid Slot (caution: may contain epics), Hilarity & Hijinks
(warning: injury and repair bills may result).
Suggested Use: Hilarity Ensues is currently being made available to Hunters, Rogues,
Moonkins (taste like chicken!), Enhancement Shamans, Holy and Disc Priests, and
Restoration Druids looking for fun, laughs, a drama-free haven, and progression at a 10-
Requirements: Skilled, mature individuals willing and able to bake at 375 degrees for
3 hours every Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7pm central time for progression
(normal and heroic), and Sunday nights at 7pm central for nostalgia and achievement
raiding. Must be able to at least hear vent, if not necessarily speak on it (though some
exceptions can be made – ask your doctor… er, ask the raid leader). Desire to be part of
building a small guild into something great and unique required. Individuals incapable of
avoiding bad things on a regular basis need not apply (it makes the raid leaders froth at
the mouth, which, while funny at first, isn’t for very long).

And theoretically, on rare occasions, we also have an @Orithea! On less rare and more wordy occasions, we also have a James. Who does not have a Twitter because he is fail? Anyway, there had to be some bubbles in this blog somewhere.
