So I am sure you have all heard the news that 20-man is going to be the only raid size for cutting edge progression. Many 10-mans are up in arms about this thing and about how hard it's going to be for us to expand. However, the entirety of the Flat Earth team is not focused in meaningless complaints, but in working hard to make the transition to a larger raid size as fast and as efficiently as possible.
This is a post to let everyone know that we are indeed going to expand and that we simply see this change as a new exciting challenge for the future and not as a boring chore we have to put up with just so we can stay competitive.
So what's our plan then? We aim to prepare a roster of around 25 players (give or take a few), well in advance of WoD release. We want to get used to raiding together as a larger group and get the general feel of larger scale group content. We will not really consider any merges of any description, we believe it's too risky of it becoming literally a business of two separate "factions" within the guild and not the unified unit we are looking for.
So what does this mean for you, who potentially is interested in joining? Well, simple. If you feel you are one of the -if not THE- best player on your team and you can back this claim up, even if you come from significantly lower ranked guilds, we are very interested in you. After all, NONE of our current players came from top 30 guilds worldwide, literally all of them came from somewhere way worse and helped us reach the point that we are now. So don't get intimidated or anything, just apply!
Another group of people that we are interested in and might hesitate to apply, is ex-hardcore raiders. Did you raid in Cataclysm or Wrath at the cutting edge and are interested to come back to the game and start raiding again? Well this will be quite the opportunity since you will have a long time to get back in the swing of things. However, substantial proof of your hardcore background will be essential.
We at Flat Earth will work really hard to build an amazing 20-man roster. This is simply another challenge for us to overcome! And we need YOU to do it so, if you think you are skilled enough, just apply!
