    T17: US #6 -- 17/17M (7/7M HM, 10/10M BrF)

    In what might have been the longest tier of WoW since Vanilla, Reckoning is done with Tier 17. The tier has dragged on far longer than it should have and in its wake lies more than one quality long-term raiding guild. It's always a shame to see a familiar name fall down and while the content itself cannot bare all the blame, it definitely played its part.

    On a much more joyous note, we've trekked through the mud and the snow and we made it to the other side. We've had some hurdles ourselves to get over and we've done them well. Our rank bounced around for sometime in between Highmaul and early Blackrock Foundry due to our unwillingness to add extra days to our raiding schedule when many other guilds we compete with added multiple. But Reckoning did what I think we do rather well: marathons. Give us a long race and some difficult fights at the end and our preparation and persistence usually pays off.

    To our melee core who didn't get to see much of Blackhand due to its poor class stacking design: thank you for your patience. It's been noted and appreciated. Our guys understood what had to happen for a kill to come in and they put the needs of the guild over their own without complaint.

    To those who had to play an ALT or change their main over the course of T17: thank you for your persistence.

    And to every single officer, raider, and applicant: thank you for showing up on time every single day, keeping morale high even when we had a bad night, not complaining when things didn't go your way, and helping your other fellow guildmates to accomplish the goals we set out to do.

    I could personally thank almost every single person in this guild for some task they handled that allowed us to finish the tier as well as we did. The officers in the guild really knew how to help and provide much needed assistance for a new GM. I've got nothing but thanks and admiration for the guys and girl we raid with.

    As always, we're recruiting. Check out the About Us section and fill out the form if you're interested.

    Mists of Pandaria: Farewell

    A long expansion is coming to a close. It's been a great couple years with so many members, albeit long. I'm sure many, if not all, are looking forward to what's in store with Warlords of Draenor: if nothing else but a welcomed change.

    We started Mists of Pandaria strong: the guild organized a 20-way tie for Realm First Level 90 while solidifying most of the profession realm first achievements as well. We celebrated our achievement by immediately tackling Sha of Anger. Under geared and tired-- we killed our first raid boss in an expansion that would throw a lot more at us. We had our share of personalities in tier 14 (we even kept a couple!) where we continued our progression push from where we left off in Firelands and Dragon Soul. Tier 15 brought about quite a few challenging fights and a few I hope we never see again (looking at you, Dark Animus). T15 was the tier of warlocks and ele shaman ALTs. It also started our overwhelming use of Google spreadsheets. Leadership has always had a coordinated setup since I joined the guild in February of 2011 but Tier 15 was where we brought that coordination to everyone. We started managing our raid slots and cooldowns in a manner that everyone could understand. Preparation has always been one of our strongest assets as a guild and this only served to amplify that quality. And Tier 16? What can I say about it? It's been long. Far too long. But the company's been great.

    One of my favorite parts of Reckoning continued in MoP: loyalty. We still have so many faces from the guild's formation and progression since early 2007 to now. The guild has a fraternal sense about it with regards to its membership. There's the class of '07, '09, '11, and now us. We haven't all raided together but we all have shared the same tag over these years and its built a true sense of community. As many guild members prepare to meet at Blizzcon this year, as they do every year, our raiding core has been preparing for another tier in Warlords. We've been doing our fair share of beta testing-- a great time to try out the new changes coming our way.

    It's been a little bit under a year since I started the role of GM in the guild, being (slowly) handed down by Varnius and I've learned a lot: mostly that I have a lot more to learn. The raiders' sense of commitment has made this one of the easiest transitions anyone could ask for. After 44 kills of Heroic Garrosh and a year of tackling the exact same content week in and week out, we maintained 17 of the 25 raiders that were present for our first heroic kill. There's a lot I could say about that. A lot. But I hope more than anything this is heard: thank you.

    It's been an enjoyable couple years with all of you. I look forward to what's in store for us in Warlords of Draenor.

    This was a US 10 / World 38.  It took us less than 20 pulls.  This is a real-time screenshot of the last seconds of our kill.

    Also, before we killed this fight, we also killed 9 other fights, but the difficulty level of 8 of those seemed to have accidentally been tuned to normal instead of heroic, so we didn't post them.

    Another tier ends.  Great expository works and pretty graphs are coming soon.

    This was a US #9 / World #26.  And I may have screwed us out of two ranks, but at least I know to use apostrophes in contractions.  This is a talent that some of our raiders apparently skipped out on learning when Mists hit if the image at the bottom of this post is any indication.  I included it anyway, though, because I'm a good person.
