Discombobulated is a social guild of adult members on Hellfire-EU(A) who have jobs, families and other interests but who still like to game with others on a regular basis. Our solution to this was to set up our own guild where we can take things at our own pace without having to worry about the drama of real life and WoW colliding, while being in a fun social environment with good people. After all, we still want to level alts and hunt achievements too!
The guild has been going strong since the start of Cataclysm. We took a raid break towards the end of T15 and have decided to kick regular raiding off again for the start of Legion. We will be running normal raids from 9pm - 12pm server time on Friday nights with dates in the calendar well in advance.
If you are an older gamer or a young one, if you spend 1 or 100 hours online a week, if you want to run instances and raids, or just collect pets for achievements and you want to do it all amongst new friends (who if I do say so myself are a pretty good laugh) then this might just be the guild for you.
When we raid on a Friday, it's always with the expectation of a no drama, friendly and easy going environment. We try to be as relaxed as possible and not enforce too many rules. Recently though, we've started noticing a trend where people are suddenly dropping out before the scheduled end with no forwarning and really, this isn't cool. Tonight, for example, we lost a quarter of the raid half an hour early with zero warning. We understand you might need to leave early if there's an emergency but if you think you may not be able to stay for the duration (for any reason) please tell us as early as possible. Ideally before the raid starts. It will be fine, you won't be kicked or banned or anything like that but it's polite and helpful to those of us who spend, frankly, far too much time organising this stuff. Everyone here has lives and a lot of people change personal schedules to be available on Friday evenings and it's not fair to waste their time if raids fall apart before they are finished. As I said at the start, we don't want to enforce rules but that doesn't mean we won't - if you're raiding, remember there are 10-20 other people being affected by you as well. Please be considerate of them. I'll cross post this to Discord and the Forums for maximum visibility. Cheers.
