Who are we?

Vanguard is a mature raiding guild that was founded in Vanilla and has been raiding competitively since Molten Core, ranking at best in the top of the entire world in the actual 3 main-raid days a week bracket. The majority of our core members have been competing at the highest level possible in this game.

We all love to raid and clear content as fast as possible, but while being able to live productive lives outside of the game without sacrificing too much.


Our values

We prioritize perfect play in all its forms. Both in terms of doing damage, and avoiding taking it. We trust that all our raiders are capable individuals, able to analyze their own mistakes and ensuring that they are not repeated. The only thing we prioritize as highly as perfect play is that our members are nice people. We try to avoid drama and people talking down to each other.

We encourage a strong atmosphere of competition amongst our players; it's important that all our players understand that we will always pick the strongest players for the harder fights. That means standing out is the best way to secure your spot for first kills. It's important that players not only perfect their play on progress, but also during farm content. Clearing farm content faster means players with limited playtime, be it due to family, work or school, has more leniency during actual progress.

Vanguard values having a small but active roster, and as a result, we try to keep a very small bench. Just enough players to never have to cancel a raid, but not so many that people spend the majority of raids sitting out. Having to put loot on fewer people has also resulted in us being one of the highest average item level guilds in the world across multiple tiers.


Our expectations

A great amount of emphasis is placed on the understanding of mechanics, so every raider can make conscious choices given variables in fights, and focus tends to be on repeatability. Our 3 day a week schedule, which is never broken, unlike many of our competititors, relies on everyones ability to make the right choices at the right times.

Players who react to events will never be able to compete for a spot against players who are focused on anticipating events and pre-emptively solving a potential problem. We encourage a high amount of personal responsibility in our raiders own performances, and do not hold hands. Instead, we trust all our members to do the right thing, at the right time, on their own initiative. We encourage and lead our members to be the very best in the world when it comes to execution, and have held many #1 in the world ranks on Warcraftlogs for efficiency, including #1 All Star.

We expect players to be well versed in theorycrafting, and have at least a medium understanding of simcraft. Reciting a priority list without elaborating on the how and why can be easily achieved by anyone. Going into a detailed explanation, however, can not. As a non-hybrid DPS you are expected to be well versed in all DPS specializations and any viable talent combinations, and to recognize and play whichever best suits the raidsetup on any given encounter.


So why should you apply to Vanguard?

Our ideal candidate is someone currently playing at top tier, but who wants more efficiency out of their time, or has less time to play due to other obligations. If you are the very best player in your guild, then you're a likely candidate. If you can look at your raid team and name several players who are better all round players than you, then most likely you are not. Many of us play many classes, some of us all of them, and alt-raids are frequent outside of the main raiding days. If you play lots of characters, you will fit in well here.

If you are a passionate perfectionist who takes pride in doing everything perfect. If you are a person who will always try to do it better and more efficiently than your last performance, then we are the guild for you. This guild is for those of you out there who are used to being the best at everything, and here you will find competition from our players that will challenge you to be even better.
Here, you'll find a guild that rewards team play and flawless execution. Not mindless greeding or meterpadding.


Raiding Hours:

Wednesday 18:45-23:00
Thursday 18:45-23:00
Sunday 18:45-23:00

Raiders are expected to attend these raids on a close to 100% basis.



Alts

On tuesdays, during progress, we run our official alt-raid. People are encouraged to join there, but are not required.

Once content is cleared the alt-raid is moved to main-raid days in anticipation of split-farming heroic content the first week(s) of a new tier. All members are required to have at least one alt that they can play at maximum ability. For raid congruency, this (in most cases) has to be the same class as your main, unless the alt would provide stronger setup for the alt-raid. If you don't have a 2nd of your class at the time of application, don't worry. You'll have plenty of time to get one up, and it will be geared by us when you do.


Loot distribution

We use a loot council for fast and fair distribution of loot. The better you play, the more likely it is for you to receive the best items. We simply place loot where it will do the most good for progress purposes, and during farm on those who are most reliable and who performs the jobs required for the success of the raid without being told to.


Boost runs

When progress is over, we start boosting people for gold. Unlike most guilds, we split all the gold for the boosts evenly among the raiders that are present for the raid at the end of each boost run. In Siege of Orgrimmar, this resulted in each of the active raiders having recieved more than half a million gold at the end. All raiders are expected to always acquire any BoE's they can at the start of an expansion, and this gold flow is intended to be used towards that.


Final words by McOwn

If you've read all of this so far, then you're on the right track. I'd like to make a few points about the application process clear. While the questions are very in-depth, you need to think about what it is we're looking for. A three-page guild history isn't important, and we're not impressed by fancy guild names. You're only a good as your last performance, and being in a top guild (in many cases) just means you raid alot, not that you're good per definition. A bunch of monkeys hurling their feces at a wall is likely going to take down that wall sooner or later.

You can also waste hours writing basic class information; this is a mistake. We assume that every bit of basic information is already known. Write the things that make you better than the general public. Include theorycrafting you have done on your own and explain your reasons for choices you make. Timing windows you look for. The simple things that make you better than your peers. Is the general theorycrafting for your class wrong? Tell us why.

When you submit logs, know that they will be gone through from top to bottom. Every offensive and defensive cooldown will be checked. Every little thing that we know makes the difference between those being carried and those carrying will be looked up. If you don't have any good ones, then just do some LFR's or PUG's and keep these things in mind. Show off, and point it out.
