[Raiding] Vodka and Exodus Merge

The second and third 25 man US guilds have merged. With the departure of a number of vodka players, including the GM Grafarion, and some difficulty in acquiring new members, vodka is merging with Exodus to create an even bigger powerhouse guild that will seriously give Blood Legion and perhaps even Method a run for their money. Both guilds were already very highly placed in the world rankings, with vodka being the current No.3 and Exodus the No.9 guild. They've also moved to Mal'ganis, seeing as neither guild much liked their servers and the new guild's current name is Evodus, but that might yet change back to Exodus. Shibou, Exodus' current GM will stay in charge of the new guild with both Exodus and vodka officers making up the rest of the leadership positions. We'll talk to the guild leaders and get their thoughts on the matter very soon.

Some fanboy was in trade chat yesterday telling them welcome to the server. I was wondering what that was all about.

I don't imagine this merge ever actually being successful. Only a handful of vodka players will reap the benefits of it. The rest are left, or have already been left, to find a new guild. Neither guild is as entertaining as Blood Legion's streams though. Rigg rage is second to none.

Do people really pay $250 to transfer [10] toons from one server to another? Or is there some mass transfer option I'm not aware of?

They are sponsored guilds so the transfers are probably covered by their management.

Nice they'll give Gamble a run for their money, do they also sell runs like them?

Last night I saw a Vodka member on LFR and some other maybe from that new guild, didn't think much of it until they started to make fun of one of them because my low geared boomie was out-dpsing them.. LOL

This.

Watch some of the more popular people who stream...Not only are most of them sponsored by some sort of company associated with gaming, but you'll see fat donations from both individuals and companies. I saw a $1250 donation to Reckful from some Anime company, and a year's gametime from some other business...not to mention the constant stream of $5-$100 donations the guy receives from the average Joe.

I don't know why people do this, but they complain when these players get paid to play. It's just like Pro sports, if you're good enough and promote yourself, companies start to notice. I give them props for being as good as they are and getting paid to do it. I honestly think they are going to give blood legion a run for their money. When people rage on those streams, not only is it funny, but you have to realise that a lot of their expenses depend on how well they actually place world wide. I could never be in a guild like that because I just don't have the luxury of time like they do. I would love to be able to compete on that caliber of gaming.

Is this how the Pride and Ego guild move was funded?

I find it funny being a 466 equipped ilvl and just smashing people on meters. Not that I really care about numbers, but there is no excuse for me beating a 488 ilvl classes. SHIT TYRONE, GET IT TOGETHER.

They are still named Exodus, had several of them on an LFR... which makes me wonder why a i507+ character is doing LFRs? maybe just for fun or VP cap?

I don't know this guy had every heroic and elite possible equipped, I thought it was the same one (or they bought the name)..

I healed the Gamble druid tank in a heroic. He took no damage.

Last night I had a Vigil tank doing LFD, the guy was insane, he pulled whole rooms with no healer and didn't die..

You know the instance where you bomb some guys coming and wait for them above the stairs? he went down there and was tanking adds there, no chance to bomb them..

After that the next boss that bubbles and you must bomb adds, he pulled everything on sight (about 20 mobs) he survived until the bomb phase ...

I looked them up on b.net just to take a look at some of their gear, etc.

I found one toon with like 5 or 6 kills of each boss on LFR, and 13/16H, but no kills of any kind on normal.

Talk about #carried.

Must be nice.

I had a hunter from Gamble on a chain of dungeons the druid healer was drooling all over him, turns that Gamble was selling guild spots just to buy the cloud serpent and other achievement mounts.

Ah I remember the time where it was a dude from Gamble, another from Vigil and some guy from Federal Reserve (all stacked in heroic gear), we did like 5 dungeons and took like 10 mins each, fun times, the random pug that joined the group barely keep up...

Fuck paying 400k to people in your guild for a carry.

I was in a guild in TBC that sold warbear mounts for 20k...10k to guildies. Bunch of assholes they were...I should've figured it out when they renamed the guild SLAVES OF WOW (yes in all caps)

I would never pay for achievements/gear because it takes the fun out of the game. You should have to put forth the effort to accomplish it. Clearing it without getting carried just gives you more pride in your character.
