[A] <Instinct> Performance, Progression and Community [PvE/PvP]

8 posts in this topic

<Instinct>

About Us:

  • <Instinct> is led by an extremely experienced player, both in retail and the private server scene. Dependable, transparent leadership coupled with policies that promote healthy competition and community is what sets us apart. Don't settle for average.
    • Years of private server experience in Vanilla
      • MC/Ony/BWL/ZG/AQ20|40 completion, Naxx ~80% (50% on retail)
    • Years of competitive arena experience
      • S2|3|6|8|10 gladiator titles
    • Solid RBG success
      • HoTA, 2600 rated
    • Dependable, helpful and friendly GM that will build an enjoyable community for you to bide your time until official servers.

Raid Times:

  • Wednesday/Thursday 6:30 PM - 9:30 PM (PST)

Loot System:

  • We are going to use a DKP system to handle all loot in our raids. It's built to be both transparent and award our members for improving and succeeding each and every raid week. 
    • A static amount of DKP will be earned for each boss kill (double for progression kills).
    • Bonus DKP (+1) will be given for being on-time to each raid.
    • 10% decay per week, applied on Sunday.
    • Standby DKP is awarded for people without a spot, but online and available at a moment's notice. If a standby is called upon and non-responsive for 5 minutes, they will forfeit all standby DKP earned that night unless prior warning was given to leadership.
    • Minimum 5 DKP per bid.
    • Minimum DKP-bid increase of 5 (if available).
    • Bids that would put a member negative are not permitted.
    • Non-integer bids are not allowed.
    • In the unlikely event of a DKP-bid tie, where neither member is able to bid more, it will go to a /roll.
    • Items not desired enough for DKP, will be sent to Gold-bid. The leadership reserves the right to refuse a Gold-bid if he suspects that people are colluding to avoid spending DKP.
    • Items not DKP/Gold-bid on, will be disenchanted and deposited in the guild bank.
    • Legendaries will be decided solely by the GM, based on the following factors (in order of importance):
      • Individuals' contributions to the guild, including those outside of scheduled raid times.
      • Individuals' performance relative to other candidates
      • Interest in receiving the legendary (farming mats, express the interest to the GM, etc)
      • Benefit to the raid
    • Monthly guild-voted (private poll responses) DKP award for 'Monthly MVP' of +10 DKP. This is meant to give guild members' a chance to recognise others' contributions, in whatever context means the most to them personally (raid performance, availability outside of schedule raid times, etc).

Rank System:

  • Our ranks are meant to promote healthy competition and improvement within our raid. Each member in the first <Instinct> raid will begin as a Member, excluding leadership. The rank structure is defined below:

 

  • Social
    • Can apply at any time to Trial
  • PvP:
    • Can apply at any time to Trial.
    • Must be or have had a minimum of rank 10.
    • At the GM's discretion, a PvP member can come in for a chance at a drop not needed by any Member (or higher rank) players, handled by Gold-bid, assuming that the PvP member is ready to sub-in and not be a hindrance to the raid's clear time.
  • Trial:
    • Earn DKP at a 100% rate.
    • Can only bid a maximum of 50 DKP on a single item, unless the only other bidders are also Trial rank.
    • Can participate in Gold-bids only on items not wanted by existing Members (or higher rank).
    • Leadership will review the state of each trial after every second raid week and do one of the following:
      • Promote to Member.
      • Remain at Trial with private feedback on how to improve.
      • Demote to Social (used by leadership sparingly, when no potential is seen in the Trial)
  • Member:
    • Earn DKP at a 100% rate.
    • Can only bid a maximum of 100 DKP on a single item, unless the only other bidders are also Members or Trials.
    • Can participate in Gold-bids without limitations.
    • Leadership will review the state of each member after every second raid week and do one of the following:
      • Promote to Raider.
      • Remain at Member with private feedback on how to improve.
  • Raider:
    • Earn DKP at a 100% rate.
    • No DKP-bid limits.
    • Can participate in Gold-bids without limitations.
    • Leadership will review the state of each raider after every second raid week and do one of the following:
      • Promote to Core.
      • Remain at Raider with private feedback on how to improve.
  • Core/Officer/GM:
    • Earn DKP at a 100% rate.
    • No DKP-bid limits.
    • Can participate in Gold-bids without limitations.
    • Core rank must maintain 90% raid attendance to maintain rank.
    • Weekly DKP decay reduced from 10% to 5%.
  • Alts:
    • Uses the same DKP pool as their main.
    • Treated as a member for DKP-bid limits regardless of main's rank.
    • Bringing alts must be approved by leadership before doing so.

PvP:

  • We encourage people to participate in organized PvP, and will be forming regular premades for BGs and/or world PvP events. <Instinct> members R10 and above qualify for the 'PvP' rank, which allows GM-discretionary Gold-bids on raid items. See Rank system section for more information!

Accepting anyone 20+ right now with some good experience in WoW, doesn't necessarily need to be Vanilla experience. Easy to learn.

That being said, we will accept any level based on a chat about your experience (mostly for people that rerolled very recently).
