What happens when you have 22 people who want to raid...
Well, it's one of those times I'm glad I'm not the guild leader.
It's difficult when you have to split the teams. I understand that. It's even more difficult to balance the teams! However, what will usually happen is you get one good team and one mishmosh team. And leftovers who feel sad.
As a member of team 2, I am in the mishmosh team. But that's OK, I'm just happy to raid.
There are a few things I was sad about. Our arena teammate had a misunderstanding and forgot to mention that he wanted to be in our raid team so we could arena together on the non raid day. He wrote on his mail to Fue that he wanted to play Sundays so he could PvP Mondays. What Shab should have said was that he wanted to be put with Navi and Sev.
I was hoping Bladewind would be with me so we could talk shop as well as raid, and then we could talk at work about it, but Fue wanted him to be in his group.
Gutsy doesn't like late raids, and he is in my group because he can't raid Sundays. I can see the tension now as it approaches 11pm and he's sleepy and grouchy and falling asleep at the keyboard.
So, I'm in the 930pm late raid start team, which raids Wed, Thurs and Monday. In my team I have a combination of:
- Tout (prot warrior)
- Slurs (prot pally)
- Priestietute (disc/shadow priest)
- Gutsy (disc priest)
- Sabrehawk (hunter)
- Sevros (warlock)
- Raked (feral druid)
- Lushnek (moonkin druid)
- Navimie (resto druid)
- Moopie (fury warrior)
- Balinar (ret paladin)
So... it will be an interesting mix with 3 druids, 2 warriors, 2 priests, 2 paladins, a warlock and a hunter. Where's the bloodlust?
I think the other group has:
- Fueghan (prot paladin)
- Zarrianissa (blood dk)
- Roshii (rogue)
- Souglyy (hunter)
- Biship (holy priest)
- Voe (resto shaman)
- Bladewind (holy paladin)
- Shabadu (mage)
- Azadelta (warlock)
- Fallnapart (fury warrior)
Anyway, fingers crossed that I can coax Shab away for PvP. Maybe if I convince him that arena on Sundays is better than raiding on Sundays.... :D then I can have bloodlust in my group!
Unfortunately, it looks like Hyad and Fleckso didn't get raid spots :(
Good luck for tonight everyone! For my group, as our first time, it's going to be a bit of an eye opener. Let's see how bad Gutsy is this time at staying close to who he's chained to for the first boss... :D
