• The Raid Observer: Week 3, Tuesday Update (with a wall of sound)

    So I've opted to record my update for today. Read on for the podcast link!
    I injured my right hand yesterday so in my bid try and rest it, I decided to record a wall of sound for you. It's only 6 minutes long, though, so not so bad! Right? Anyway, I cover a few things like the world first kill of Madness (congrats Kin Raiders!), some general impressions of how the race is going, and a few comments on whether Tier 13 is truly the unluckiest tier race (for some, at least) ever.

  • Goodbye, For the Horde

    For the Horde is one of the oldest high end raiding guilds that we've had the pleasure of being competitors and good friends with. They have always strived to be the best without losing their motivation and soul. We respect the dedication they have put into the raiding scene the past few years we have been competing with them. They have had their ups and downs, but their kills speak for their skill: world second Lich King and world first Cho'gall have earned our respect for the German guild.
