We have added 110 Island Smurfing to the list (getting really geared on some 110s, and then locking their exp to farm normal islands for xmogs and mounts and whatnot) to the list. I am not sure if you are able to edit your responses after submitting, let me know if it doesn't let you do that.

Hey guys, we want to measure interest in a few possible guild activities we can implement, so if you'd like to do more stuff with your fellow Vortexians, when you have a moment, please fill out this Googley Doc: https://goo.gl/forms/SbiOo7qeXqrXc7Aj2

We appreciate any participation! Currently there is no option for additional things, so if you would like to suggest something to be added to the list that I may have missed, just leave a comment here and I will add it when I can!

For days you have waited. All the relationships ruined with the outside world. The slowly depreciating living conditions caused by the endless waiting, on the edge of your seat, for the next set of the absolutely riveting Zappies. Hoping, praying, that you too had proved your worth Odyn. I am God King Skovald! These mortals dare not challenge my claim to the Aegis!

Whoa, blacked out for a moment there. Where was I? Oh yes, the second round of Zappy awards for the Matron of Tenacity, Herald of Endless Research!

The categories are:
  • The But My Parse... Award: This award is granted to the raiders who sacrificed their ability to parse just so we could kill the boss.
  • The Check Out My Parse Award: This award is granted to the raider who just tunneled the boss the entire fight because our raid leader let him/her.
  • The Organization is Key Award: This award is granted to the raider who best demonstrated how important an organized strategy is to defeating this boss.
  • Kunai with Chain: This magic card is the only magic card in Joey's entire deck, like where the fuck did he learn to play Duel Monsters even?!

Let's jump right into the first category, the rich and fulfilling But My Parse... Award!

You guys know what sucks real bad? Having to be in the first group of people to cross the barriers on this fight. You're never gonna parse with such little uptime on the boss, and you don't even get good uptime on the adds because the goal is to blow them up super fast. Without these unsung but now sung because I am singing about them heroes, we would never be able to kill the boss though. We need these players to traverse the barrier and get some lock down stuns on the blobbies that everyone else who gets to parse spawns when they cross the barriers later on. As a measure of thanks to these players going above and beyond to achieve a completely mediocre parse, we would like to congratulate...

Gale, Litto, Xannathos, and Hambonebob! Not Ellyana and Glaiverunner though because they parsed well anyway.


You may bring any frustrations regarding receiving this award to Xannathos, as it as his decision to cripple you all on this fight.

Our second award is the worshiped and mythical Check Out My Parse Award!

This award goes to the selfish son of a bitch that just sat in the room as long as they could, again on Xannathos' orders. If you did not receive this award and are upset about it, you may again direct your complaints to Xannathos. One player above all others tunneled the shit out of the boss on our first kill, and is of course most deserving of this award. So without further delay, congratulations to...

Warbus!

Warbus achieved a superb 97 percentile on our first kill of this boss, while the rest of us all suffered (except Joms who gets an honorable mention here with a 96). Again, if this upsets any of you, don't forget to cry at Xannathos about it. That doesn't seem to be working out for Diablo fans at the moment but it's still worth a shot.

The final award for this ceremony is the rare and valuable Organization is Key Award!

In many raid tiers, there is often a specific boss that demands an above and beyond performance from the guild's raid leader. In Emerald Nightmare, this boss was Xavius. He was followed by Desolate Host in Tomb of Sargeras, who again was followed by Eonar in Antorus. Mother is the Uldir equivalent to these bosses, who ask more than usual of the raid leader. Mostly, it's just really really annoying to have to redo the AA for every single different composition of raiders that we bring week to week for these kinds of bosses. As a way of showing our appreciation to Xannathos's raid leading thus far, the Zappy award for the category of Organization is Key goes to...

Gronnsbane! No I'm just kidding it goes to Xannathos of course, weren't you even reading the part above?

Thank you all for reading, keep it up, let's try to be focused and on target tonight so we can reclear Zek'Vectis, and I will see you all at the awards ceremony for Zek'Voz! Congratulations to the winners!

Vortex News & Information / Taloc: Activating Award Retrieval
« on: October 30, 2018, 01:56:01 PM »
Good day Vortexians! It is with great pleasure that I am here to announce the awarding of Battle for Azeroth's first round of lucrative and legendary awards: the Zappies! The Zappies are granted based on some completely arbitrary and/or fun criteria relevant to our first kill of each progression raid boss in mythic.

Our first round covers the encounter against one of the most elevated of the titan constructs within Uldir: Taloc!

The categories are:
  • The Do the Thing Award: This award is granted to the raiders who do the thing the best.
  • The Dodge the Thing Award: This award is granted to the raiders who dodge the thing the best.
  • The Avoid the Thing Award: This award is granted to the raider who has the highest avoidance tertiary... I mean who avoids the thing the best.
  • Pot of Greed: This magic card allows me to draw two more cards from my deck.

Without further adieu, let's start with the first category, the prestigious Do the Thing Award!

The Thing to Do in question on the Taloc encounter, is to drop the Blood Storms (puddles left behind by ticks of Plasma Discharge) on the appropriate spot, a marker designated by the raid leader, Xannathos. Based on this criteria, after observing the replay of the first kill, I am happy to award the Do the Thing trophy to...

Gizmozz and Sunnymuffin!


Gizmozz dropped the most Blood Storms on the appropriate position, followed closely by Sunnymuffin. Sunnymuffin received the ability one time fewer than Gizz however, and had a better percentage of drops on the correct position. Congratulations both of you and thank you for doing the thing!

Our second award is the revered and highly sought after Dodge the Thing Award!

The Thing to Dodge to receive this luxurious trophy is Sanguine Static, a targeted conal ability that shoots five blood spheres in lines in the direction of the cone. Who am I kidding, this is literally just Aggramar's Wake of Flames reskinned to look like blood. Being a completely avoidable ability by all members of the raid team, everyone who took no damage from it was awarded the Dodge the Thing award! And so, congratulations to...

Warbus, Lynxx, Bowzakana, Gale, Demoniclink, and Ellyana!

On behalf of Xannathos and I, we would like to thank you all for dodging the thing!

Our final award for this ceremony is the utterly essential Avoid the Thing Award!

Similar to the Dodge the Thing award, this is granted to the player who performs best at avoiding the damage of an unavoidable ability. This can be achieved in some cases by proper defensive utilization, but also in some cases such as Taloc, by properly executing the mechanics. Taloc's Cudgel of Gore ability causes him to deal unavoidable damage to the raid, but the damage is reduced based on your distance from the source. This award was gifted to the raider who took the least amount of damage from this ability.

And so the awarding of the Avoid the Thing Zappy goes to...

Xalilith!

With no immunity and scarce defensive abilities, Xalilith managed to take the least amount of Cudgel of Gore damage in the raid by properly positioning himself at max range when the damage erupted. Congratulations Xal, we appreciate you for avoiding the thing!

Thank you all for tuning in, keep up the good work, and we will see you all at the awards ceremony for M.O.T.H.E.R.!
