    Weekly Raid-Leading Marmots & Screenshot Caption Contest





    These movies can be downloaded in high definition through our Donor Download Service. Click to learn more!





    Last Week's Competition -- Screenshot Contest
    We've drawn out the five winners for last week and they will receive a private message on this site within 24 hours! Or, if you recognize your screenshot in this week's contest, you can safely assume you're a winner!

    This Week's Competition -- Screenshot Caption Contest
    This week we're doing a screenshot caption contest from last week's winning screenshots! Choose one or several of the following screenshots and give us your funniest caption.





    We will draw 5 entries at random to win a Murloc Marine. Among these five, we will decide which caption we like the most and award them a Lil' KT and Pandaren.

    You are welcome to respond multiple times to the thread to discuss the movies, but don't add a second post with captions! Posters who make multiple entries or post from multiple accounts will be disqualified. Members who haven't won a pet are welcome to re-enter the contest with each new week!

The problem is when those people want to be competitive raiders and think things will just get handed to them and they can continue to be sup-par players or start talking about how "MY GEAR SCORE IS FIFTY MILLION WHY DO I NEVER GET INVITED TO PUGS" because they do not bother to take the time and learn about their class.

    3) watching alienas now! (her intro wins!)

    When do we see who won the SS contest? I am still not sure who won the Murloc/Mermot movie/song contest.

    Also.. I am hoping for Ze Elf Dancing.

    I don't think anyone but the winners know who won, and the winners only know if they won...

    If I remember correctly, it was stated somewhere - by Ciderhelm? - that the winners would be sent private messages within 24 hours (of their being picked).
    Yay! Sparklies and Pretty Butterflies!

    Yeh, I remember that. I would still like to know who won. Would be interesting to see.

    Yeah, I agree. It would be interesting to see what the winning entries were, even if the winners themselves are kept anonymous...to prevent anyone jealous enough from "reacting". :P

    I don't necessarily care about who won the last contest, I'm more interested in seeing what the winning contributions were.

    Week one was like the BlizzCon tickets -- we had a flood of people respond who actually weren't checking their PMs after the fact. We have 3 Murlocs ready to award for week 1 but 2 that we just can't seem to get a response on. At this point, I'm probably going to have our last week award a couple more Murlocs to get these out somehow.

    Anyway, that's your answer!

    ---

    This weeks will be another hour or so before we've got the screenshots selected. Basically, what we'd like to do is have the winning screenshots from last week be the screenshots for this week's caption contest. There's a time issue involved because we had to keep last week's contest running until earlier today, so selection still has to occur.

    I am not a robot. However, a robot is responsible for my sleep schedule at the moment.

    As if he's ever had a normal sleep schedule. Vampire, I say!

    No, pretty sure he goes for days without sleep. I swear, no matter what time of the day, he's online.

    Also.. I'm an Aliena fan, but Lore's intro made me actually laugh. Sorry!

    As always interesting vids. On the topic of raid leading itself: I totally agree with the last bit. I'm the raid leader in my guild and we're a casual raiding guild (2 nights/week) on a low populated server and thus we don't have the option of just removing a bad player from a raid and replacing him/her. That is something we've done for harder parts in 10-man (most notably Mimiron/Algalon-tries and Tribute to Insanity-runs) but for 25-man, there is no option.

    What I consider is that as long as you see your members get progressively better, you don't really have to down the content, you're making progression and that's as important as killing the bosses itself and getting the phat l00tz. Because if you're getting progressively better then you will eventually beat content without outgearing it. Just make sure you tackle the right spots (i.e. talk to the bad players) and ask them what they're having troubles on and ask them to talk to other players in the same role (healers talk with other healers in the guild etc) and really try to evaluate what they're doing wrong. I've been doing this approach since TBC and even though I have some alts that I rarely raid with and don't have that impressive gear with, I really see myself getting better on every character I play.

    How do you do that?! Is it a gift one is born with, or can it be acquired?
