  1. Back to that construction site again is it? Some people will do anything to go out!
  2. So I haven't replied up and til this point as I as seeing what happened. That's a lie, I've been busy. Firstly best of luck Sharp. I hope you get what you're looking for out of the game through this move and I cannot blame you in the slightest. BoT cannot now feasibly raid and hence M+ is our only real content. Whilst this is a shame I think a lot of us have moved forward with our lives which is certainly playing its part in this downturn. To address Tom's points first of all. I don't think there is a Discord vs TS split but I would say there is a Discord vs forums split. It is quite clear that conversations are happening in Discord channels and elements are then cross-posted onto the forum to catch players who aren't on Discord. I agree it is a shame that this has to happen and it feels unnecessary. People being pushed away is something they can comment on but I hope I've not been a cause to push anyone away, it certainly isn't my intention. I want BoT to be welcoming to everyone and people to feel they can come and go as they please. In many ways that is even more true if we aren't raiding anymore. I totally agree about the needed commitment needed for +15s. They need consistent pressing and practice but I feel that has changed a lot since Tom posted and we're getting much further on these now. I don't really see how BoT can continue as a guild in its current form except as a social environment for people so I suggest we look for another guild to join as social members at this point. Lastly: Let me be clear, I always have time for that. If I had time I'd join you with my favourite Orc team. 12 lineman in the initial starting team BUT 8 rerolls.
  3. When you ran your sims, did you give the sim the option to swap out other pieces to avoid breaching your corruption cap? I don't know what rank mindflay you have but the sim will ignore it if it would push you over your set corruption cap unless you give it enough other options to shuffle pieces in and out
  4. That's fair. The stupid thing about corruptions is that it makes you feel obliged to run lower level content as a single good corruption can be as much as a 5% dps increase. In so many ways this is worse that running LFR and hoping for gear to titanforge up to the heroic equivalent.
  5. The trouble with this patch is that statement may not always be true because of how strong certain corruptions are. I've had 445 corrupted pieces out perform 470 uncorrupted more than once. Obviously you have to be able to handle the corruption and the 470 equivalent would be better but lower vision gear may not be rubbish. The lesson of this patch is basically that you need to sim everything

    CoD: Warzone

    At the risk of suggesting an activity that requires multiple people to be online at once, does anyone have any interest in giving CoD: Warfare a go? Free to play battle royale launching today.
  7. These? https://global.com/awards/
  8. Tuesday is no different to Monday for me so I don't mind particularly but as Todd says it does remove the emergency backup day
  9. My only concern here, to draw together the two active threads for a moment, is time. Pushing to m+15 well require, as Tim says, learning the instances very well, along with the new affix, consumables etc. It's going to need more than one night a week of m+ runs so we can push up keys and clear. It also involves doing instances that we avoid like underrot (not sure I have done more than a 9 in time ever). I'm worried people don't have the time to schedule in both m+ and heroic raid progression each week. It would be a shame to push for both and miss both.
  10. I'd like to push the 15s and my evenings are generally more free then they used to be as the baby is sleeping through more. That said, this week I'm barely here. The 10 felt very doable, but the new affix needs a bit more learning than the old one as it helps to know which mini boss does what.
  11. By my count we have 10 active players and so could form a raid but it wouldn't be terribly diverse. It's inevitable we will need to pug people most weeks at which point we might as well go for one of the better scaling break points like 14 people or whatever it is. Most of our 10 people are active in m+ to a greater or lesser extent and hence the normal raid gear is, with a few niche exceptions, largely useless. As this is the last raid of the expansion and will last at least 6 months minimum, I suggest we change it up slightly. We run normal on an extended lockout until clear, however many weeks that takes. Then we do the same for heroic. If we just ran normal with fresh lockouts we'd never clear 12 bosses and we'd end up farming the first half forever. Or rather for about 4 weeks until we were bored. Thoughts?
  12. Do you want that stuff for trnasmog? I have a plate gloves token (two actually) I can send you.
  13. I mean there are like 28 bosses in it or something daft so keep dreaming
  14. Fair point. Siege of Orgrimmar tomorrow night then?
