With the heaviest of hearts, Jesse and I are announcing the disbanding of Blood and Thunder.
We thank everyone for their banter, patience, aid and playtime over the months. Please take the time over the next couple days to think about your plans and where you may want to go. We are not going to be keeping the guild name and will be shutting down the Website in early December.
Jesse and I feel that the size of the horde side server and quantity of other guilds is preventing us from growing into a medium sized casual guild with a core raiding group, which has been our aim with BaT. This has us holding back the talented raiders we do have and placing undue stress on the casual players who make up the rest of the guild. The time and commitment of running a guild has worn on Jesse and I personally and we are hoping that by disbanding we will be able to get back some of the casual fun we have been missing as of late while attempting to maintain the community as best we can.
In spite of our best efforts and after doing a lot of soul searching we have determined the best thing for everyone is to dissolve Blood and Thunder. We are only 28 active players, but as small as we are our community is amazing. This has been an incredibly hard decision.
We will be mailing every member of BaT a full guild roster of our mains so that you can make sure your friends list is complete. For players who will be looking for raiding guilds, at your request, both Brox and Hemo will mail the GM of any guild you apply to to personally endorse you and we welcome you adding our character names to your applications for
officers to PM for a reference.
Axis of Ego will remain and will have open spots for those who still want a name above there head, without the pressures of being in a "guild". Broximar and Philia will not be being placed in AoE, but Brox's alt Paile will stay on as the psuedo-gl. We have added a Guild Hunting area to the forums for everyone to share where they're going to be looking to go so that anyone who wants to stick together can do so more easily.
For everyone who has been a part of Blood and Thunder, past and present, we invite you to /join bat and stay on that channel while you play on the server. Think of it as the Blood and Thunder Social club. We can stay easily in touch by adding everyone to our friends list, and we can have the community and group dynamic by staying on the /bat channel - but without holding anyone back and without the same pressures.
/join bat to join
/chatwho # to see who is on, where # is the number of channel that your bat channel is on (ie. for trade it would be /chatwho 2)
Once again, thank you everyone. It's been a blast. Sorry it is ending. We will truly miss having you on guild chat with us but will be watching where you move from here and cheering you on all the way. You have been unbelievable, neither of us thought we would find so many rewarding friendships or challenges here. We'll probably be taking a small break from the game once we disband but we'll be around.
Jesse (Broximar) & Kyla (Hemophilia)
