Faint's Application Battletag: Not shown for your role. Posted: 20. June 2019 - 22:59
Application has been accepted.
Hi, my name's Chris. To give you a bit of background on my raiding background this tier:
During my time with Fudged, I raid led to 6/9M. As we only raided for 2 days/week, 6 hours/week, the pre-raid preparation had to be on point. I designed the following spreadsheet to ensure that all of our raiders knew exactly what was expected, when to use CD's and so on. The reason I feel this supports my application is because it paints a clear picture I feel that I know exactly how a fight will work before I even walk in to pull it for the first time. This is especially good for a tank as it allows me to concentrate on how DPS are positioned, and how I can then readjust the boss (if required) to ensure uptime is best for them. (Not so relevant I guess the last 2 tiers because rip melee, but the thought is there lol!)
We also struggled quite a bit on Opulence M. To combat this, I reviewed everyone's logs for mechanical issues and produced the following spreadsheet. This resulted in a kill coming the following raid, as this was posted publically and people did not want to be called out again. I feel this supports my application as it is further evidence that I know how to review logs, and am also active in doing so.
What I hope has come through on this application is my desire to get back into serious end game raiding, all be it on a more casual basis than "back in the day." I only play WoW to raid, and this has always been the case. I am aware that currently I am only 8/9M, which is a little behind you guys, but I hope you can see from my application that I am more than capable of playing at a much higher level.
I also actively keep a DK geared as an alt (because typically, every tier requires a DK tank for at least 1 fight). I am equally capable of playing this char. His logs + armoury are here:

I am looking for a well run, 2 day raid guild that are well established. You guys seem to be that.
Previous experience in the top 100 from early TBC - end of Cata (culminating in a world 27 Mu'ru kill.
Quit until BFA:
Uldir 6/8M (Ghuun on 7%)
BOD 8/9M (tanked both Mekka/Blockade on Dk)
Disney and Dots - Disbanded.
Antisocial Elitists - Disbanded.
Fudged - Was GM here. My job changed however and I was unable to raid 2 days a week so I handed the leadership over to my officer team and stepped down.
Konfluens - Was 3rd tank here, only on standby when required due to how my personal circumstances where. They then changed (again) and I am now actively looking.
Semi Serious - Trialed here but the atmosphere in raid did not suit and I left after 2-3 raids.
Previous to this expansion, I have always raided in the top 100 scene, which involved rushing through content for high world rankings. While I do not have the time any longer to commit to this, I still want to kill the hardest difficulties as quickly as possible.
