While I haven’t updated the site in a while, we’re busy in the new WoW expansion, Battle for Azeroth. We’re currently raiding on Monday and Thursday nights in Uldir and making some good progress while trying to gear up. Come join us or drop by our Discord channel and say “Hi!”
So, this happened…
What is “this”, you say? This is our “filthy casual” guild one-shotting the first boss in the final raid of an expansion on the first night of release, that’s what “this” is!
Let the record show that on Tuesday, November 28, 2017, Silent Strike did something it’s never done as a guild before. We took down the first boss, on our first try, in a brand new raid on the first night of release. Big deal, you say? Actually, to me and probably many of my guildmates, it is a pretty big deal.
We’re a friends and family guild of casual gamers and while we have always tried to do the best we can with the time we have, we’ve usually always been a raid or two behind the curve. Legion has been a pretty amazing expansion for us, partly because Blizzard finally got a lot of things right – primarily enabling even casual gamers to solo their way to top level gear and partly because we’ve got an amazing group of players who do the work and help each other to succeed.
Congratulations to all of you!
I’ve imported and integrated our forums into some new software. It’s not as fancy as previous and I’m not exactly happy with how narrow the display window is (it’s a WordPress theme issue), but they appear to function. You should once again be able to post and upload pictures etc. There’s only one log in (your main login to this site should be all you need).
I went through forums and deleted really old content so it’s been stripped down a bit, but the more current information is still there. Let me know if you have any problems (you can email saleny at silent-strike.org).
