Rarely has the perseverance of the guild been tested as it was in Crucible of Storms. I can't recall a less popular tier than this one, with fewer than 60 guilds killing the end boss prior to the beginning of the next raid's release. Nevertheless, Temerity's 17th consecutive tier of raiding ended like it usually does - with another US Top 50 finish. I want to give special recognition to Nether and Lazek, whose commitment and leadership helped to see us through. I also want to tip my hat to all of our raiders, both the new ones who stepped in seamlessly after some untimely departures, and our incumbents, who banded together in a very positive way and stuck with it. Because of all of you, we're in great shape as we prepare to tackle Azshara. On to the next!
The Horde perspective has been a bit new, but the song remains the same for Temerity. We've rolled into the Battle for Azeroth strong, first with a US 33rd kill of G'huun and now a US 37th conquest of Jaina. As always, I salute our leadership for their dedication and navigating the turbulent waters of progression. I also tip my hat to our raiders, for jumping through the hoops that the game demands and focusing when it mattered for a remarkably consistent result.
Onward to the next!
Some things never change. Temerity closes out Legion with another Top 50 showing, vanquishing Argus after a grueling stretch of progression to end the expansion. A huge congratulations to the raid team for persevering not just this final tier, but a challenging and often frustrating meta that persisted through all of Legion.
Some things, however, DO change. After nearly a decade of representing the Alliance on Windrunner, Temerity has gone red and transferred to Hyjal as a Horde guild. With Blizzard deciding to double down on the faction divide in Battle for Azeroth, we found it prudent to join the increasingly dominant Horde raiding population. It saddens us to leave the only home we've known, but the dwindling number of Alliance raiding guilds became impossible to ignore.
With the transfer complete, we look forward to continuing our Alpha testing for BfA and farming out the rest of Legion.
Memelord Senya wishes everybody a happy holiday on behalf of his Temerity family!
