About Us
We are a serious 20-man team who raids 9 hours a week, 5:30 - 8:30 (PST) server Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday. We enjoy pushing ourselves and each other with intent to perform to a US Top 300-500 level.

Our players have a broad raiding history on progression-focused teams, and we cleared Heroic SoO just 3 months after forming. We want to achieve as much as we can on a limited schedule. Raiding just nine hours a week, our time in instances needs to be entered into with 100% focus. In order to be effective, we use the following policies:

Recruitment
Our mythic roster is set, but we are always on the lookout for exceptional players who enjoy min-maxing their characters and are always striving to perform better each and every raid. However, we are also looking for players that are going to be a good personality fit within our group. Given that our team is focused on both mythic progression and fun, we need to have players that genuinely enjoy raiding with their team through all of the wipes and all of the victories. This is still very much a game for all of us and we enjoy the camaraderie of raiding just as much as the satisfaction of killing bosses.

If you are interested in applying, please submit an application. We will review and respond back to you as soon as possible.

Working as Intended Team Application

Trials
The trial period normally lasts 2-3 weeks, but depends on the skill level and situational awareness of the individual. We will bring you as often as possible during farm. We will be in a regular state of recruitment, keeping a healthy bench is required for a successful raid team. Your level of communication will play a major role during this process.

Communications
Mumble chatter is kept to a minimum outside of break time and trash pulls. Strategy discussion happens outside of raid time using either forum posts, GroupMe, email, etc. and we encourage everyone to contribute to the discussion at this time. Strategy during raids will be explained by the raid leader. Raiders are expected to keep up to date on out of game discussions. Raid time will be for practicing our execution and making fine tuning changes based on experience.

Performance
Warcraft Logs are posted for every raid and are available for anyone to look at anytime. It is expected for all raiders to check their performance regularly and be capable of taking criticism.

If the officers notice that you are underperforming consistently, there will be a side conversation to help you address the issue. Officers will do whatever they can to help you improve and fix any issues, but it will be your responsibility to make the changes suggested. If noticeable improvement is not made within one week of the meeting you will be benched for all progression bosses and only brought in for our farm content until improvement has been made.
It is your job to know your class, spec, glyphs and how to maximize your performance for each encounter. Come prepared and min/maxed appropriately to every raid.
Even if this is your alt, we expect you to treat it like you would treat your main!

Standby
With the introduction of mythic 20-man raiding we will be focused on building a core 20-man group of highly skilled individuals that fit into our team culture. We will be maintaining an active roster of anywhere from 20-26+ players. Players will be rotated in based on gear needs and boss strategies. If you are on standby you should be in the Mumble channel and watching the stream. We would like you to be in group 5 so we can easily see you are there but it is not mandatory, as long as you will be ready when we call you in.

Loot
This is a drama free zone. Good teamwork breeds success and success breeds loot, lots of loot. Our current policy is a modified loot council. We encourage our team members to make the best decisions for the raid team.

Flask/Food/Potions/Enchants
You are responsible for bringing your own food, flasks and potions to every boss attempt at every raid. Every raider is also responsible for maximizing their gear prior to raid. Gems, enchants and reforges are mandatory for optimizing the success of the group. Every raider is expected to cover their own expenses for maintaining healthy raiding.

Attendance
We need to have all players ready to pull at the raid start time. This means invites will go out 10-15 minutes prior to raid start. All of your raid preparation and personal business should be completed by that time.

Attendance will be tracked via our shared spreadsheet through google docs. All loot/fight requests by players and confirmation of participation in fights will be indicated through this same spreadsheet.

We do understand that life gets in the way. When real life takes priority, you must notify the Raid Leader via GroupMe and update the google docs spreadsheet with this planned absence. If you wish to leave the raid team, please notify Glaive as soon as possible. If you go AWOL for more than 2 regular raid nights, we will assume that you have left the team.

Attitude
Follow the CTR credo: Community, Teamwork, Respect. Raid chat may get spicy here and there, but we will not tolerate a hostile environment.

Working as Intended
Raid Preparation Checklist

Week before raid
 Study up – boss guides, MMO Champion class forums, whatever your preferred preparation method
 Read up on team strategy as posted in WAI Roster Mgmt spreadsheet
 Practice in LFR, Normal, or Heroic
 Log your practice sessions and review your logs for areas of trouble & opportunity

2 days before raid
 Make a list of upgrades so you’re prepared in advance of loot dropping
 Note your boss requests in the WAI Roster Mgmt spreadsheet

1 day before raid
 Reboot your PC and router (if that’s likely to be helpful)
 Gather personal consumables (food, potions, flasks, elixirs)
 Make sure RCLootCouncil is installed and enabled.
 Gather your bonus roll Seals.

30 minutes before raid
 Check your gear for temporary items (Dalaran ring, Stormwind cloak, etc.)
 Repair your gear
 Double-check your gear optimization (best pieces, gems, enchants)

15 minutes before raid
 Get into CTR Mumble Raid 20
 Whisper Prema “Working” (without quotes) for auto invite
 Get to the instance and help kill trash

Raid time
 Check your food and flasks before each fight
 Check your talents and glyphs before each fight
 Get your raid buffs out and keep them up as needed
 Be quick to select your loot options after each fight
 Trash killing is social time, when trash is dead, clear Mumble for boss-killing time

Bring a cheerful attitude and the confidence of knowing you are well prepared to every raid.
This is a team effort; none of us can succeed or fail on our own.

Great night last night. Laughs were had, new bosses were killed, much loot was gained, and we are starting to gel as a team more and more every night.
