|Dize||US-Zul'jin||Hello, I'm Dize, a top 10 US Hunter that started playing WoW late
Ulduar. This section will be my raiding autobiography from the
start to where I am today. I have made many friends and enemies
during my journey and I will leave nothing out of this bio.|
I started playing during the summer of '09 when one of my friends showed me the game (Inglewood). I took it slow leveling and just played casually until I reached the level cap which was 80 back in Wrath just as Tier 8 (Ulduar) was wrapping up. Once I hit level cap I quickly rose the ranks of Gorgonnash and found myself raiding in the #1 guild on the server, Kill Order, but soon after we finished Tier 9 (ToC) drama took over and the guild was disbanded.
A guild on Rexxar picked me up during the Tier 9 farm, Farm Status, who were #1 on there server, yet during progression the guild slowly died out leaving the leadership to disband. I was picked up by a guild on Area 52, Spanks, who were #1 on their server which looked liked the best place to go as they were obtaining top 100 US kills. I joined and few weeks later we downed Lich King after countless wipes. The lack of leadership (Traps) led to the guilds downfall and a week after my departure the guild disbanded.
I decided to go to the top Horde server (Illidan) in hopes to rise the ranks and be able to play with high-tier players. I joined Unison or Paranoia, I forget which once since 2 days later we merged with each other. I applied to Raiding Rainbows since the leadership of Mind Games seemed rocky at the time (Sikonos) seemed rocky at the time of the merger. I got accepted into Raiding Rainbows and loved the leadership and members, After obtaining top 20 US for both Tier 11 and 12, some of the core leaders and officers (Kradnoh and others) left which caused the leadership to be handed over. I left the guild to go to Excessive Gaming, but the same week they disbanded due to the guild leader leaving the game.
So there I was once again guildless due to disbands and leadership changes just as another tier was about to start. I tried applying to Blood Legion, and would of gotten accepted, but they had another Hunter applicant who was the leader of Vigil (Truefire) who, on paper, clearly out qualified me. I decided to join Pie Chart and was able to complete Tier 13 top 10 with them. My trial was declined even though I out performed all of the Hunters in the guild simply because I didn't play other games with their core roster (Starcraft / Minecraft / League of Legends).
I decided to join Team Malice on Zul'jin since a few Excessive Gaming members went there and they looked like a solid team ready to push top 10 US for Pandaria. Once Pandaria hit, we got multiple top 10 US kills but the leadership (Sean) was an asshole and kicked most of the good players for no apparent reasoning other than not being able to afford items worth hundreds of thousands of gold on release and since I played the auction house he wanted me to donate 1 million gold to the guild or I would be kicked along with forcing their players to exploit progression bosses for kills.
Needless to say I along with a majority of us left the guild due to the threats and joined Duality. My time in Duality was great! we went from top 50 US to top 5 US in a matter of 2 tiers. Yet school took over as I progressed into University where I can no longer play the hours I used to, thus I cancelled my subscription and have been sticking to console FPS and F2P MMO's.
