We are openly recruiting for <Stratageme> on the new Selo server. Who are we? The core of Stratageme is a tight knit group of friends who have been gaming together for 20 years. We used to play on Luclin where we were well known for taking down the current raid targets with a much smaller than average raid force. For instance, we would clear with Rallos Zek, for progression, with less than 36 players. We prefer for people to feel like they are part of the fight and carry their weight in a raid. The trend of throwing bodies at a raid and winning at any cost is not our style. This is how we fought then, and this is how we will fight on Selo! Why choose <Stratageme> ? There are a few things that we can provide that other guilds may not. 1.) We will not worry about racing through content month to month and will go at our own pace. While we might not spend a ton of time in classic, we will go and knock out those classic bosses before moving on so everyone can experience those targets if they haven't had a chance! We will not be a hardcore raid guild. The approach to any fight will be focused and intense, hardcore in spirit, but we are all adults with complicated enough lives in the real world and edging out server firsts is not the priority here. The focus is on having fun by killing targets in an enjoyable manner. We compete with ourselves and on our terms, not with racing against the server. 2.) We will be using a transparent and rotating loot council system to distribute loot. While DKP may be the norm for many guilds and on most servers, we feel Selo is different. Given our objectives, the ideal person for our guild is driven firstly by the idea of a smaller guild progressing on its own terms- not video game pixels. This isn't a job and we don't want to cultivate that feeling of trading time for items. Problems with DKP generally are hoarding and not being able to compete with older members. These problems will not exist. Since we are a smaller guild, any item that is an upgrade should not go to waste. Secondly, with the rapid unlocks, mudflation and new tiers of gear, both at the group and raid level, will quickly diminish the importance of the previous tiers loot. So why stress out about it? All loot related distribution will be transparent and public and members will be encouraged to participate and rotate onto the council if interested. 3.) Casual and Efficient - We are a guild that raids 2 progression days a week on a EST schedule. We also offnight raid approx 3 other nights a week to gear up and simply /random for loot? You can expect to log in at 7pm and we will target being done around 11pm EST. We will maximize our time so can expect pulls to be starting right at raid time. The fun in raiding in EverQuest is in the execution. Smooth, efficient, and always looking for ways to improve or speed up is the fun part. 4.) We will be a mature guild. Members will be expected to abide by a simple set of policies, both in, and out of the guild. While chat will be adult in nature, strict moderation will prohibit much of the common toxic chat found in other guilds. There will be zero tolerance on toxic behavior. We're adults in 2019, not teenagers in 1999. What days will we raid? Progression raid nights are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Attendance requirements There will be no attendance requirements in this guild. However if you are online we expect you to be at the raid. Guild communication We will be using Discord for all communication. In addition to using for raids there will be all information you need provided to you in Discord and can be found here: https://discord.gg/AdZCxKq How to join <Stratageme> ?
