Last week in TNB 74, I had the opportunity to chat with Tristan Johnson from The Elitist Podcast. Tristan is a member of the guild “No Chicks Allowed” which is a hardcore guild which is highly ranked in the US and world wide.
It was very interesting to chat with Tristan about how a “Hardcore” guild differs from all (two) of the guilds I’ve ever been in. One thing that struck me is he said that they don’t schedule their raids. Instead they have specific night which are set aside for raiding.. and ALL of the raiders are expected to show up and be ready to raid on those nights. In fact if you -can’t- show up you’re expected to contact the guild leadership to let them know that you won’t be there. I can see how that would make raid scheduling a lot easier. Right now we’re scheduling raids.. and we don’t know who we’re going to have until it comes time to setup the run.
All in all it was a very interesting discussion and I highly recommend you check it out.
