re: Join the Raid Team! (It's easier now than ever!)

0

This is us!

Check out our Youtube Channel and see all of our raid, music, and for fun videos.

Welcome to Midnight Carnival!

We hear you may be looking to raid! You don't need to meet minimum requirements to join the guild, you come come, hang out, get ready, get to know people, but you have to meet the minimum requirements to apply :)

They are:

Raid nights are Tuesday & Thursday, 6-9p MST (server). You must commit to both full nights or we cannot accept you to this team. 

  • A sufficient ilvl (Max 20lvls below current teir) Fully Gemmed and Enchanted
  • An Adequate or better DPS/HPS/Mitigation level, appropriate for your class
  • Required addons
  • A cooperative non elitist attitude. Shitty/Selfish attitude is grounds for removal

*Target Dummies/LFR are not sufficient indicators of DPS

Expectations once you are accepted:

  • Show up on time, every raid night - Invites go out at 5:45p for a 6p first pull.
  • Be Fully Prepared (Repaired, Flasks/Potions ready, Roll Coins already gotten, Addons up to date)
  • Prepare for boss encounters by studying the fight mechanics online, meaning on raid nights you know what you're doing (have a baseline)
  • Continue to improve your gear between raid nights
  • Have a firm understand of your class and ALL it's mechanics, so they can be properly applied to raid mechanics

 

You are allowed to have as many toons in other guilds, or ours, as you want, but the toon you use to raid with our raid group is not to run pug/extra raids until our raid week is over.

If that sounds pretty reasonable to you, we also run Mythic+ groups, heroics, and do things together to help people gearing for our raid group get ready.

As always we are accepting social (no raid) and leveling characters, and all alts, friends, and tiny guilds looking to merge are welcome. Hope to hear from some people! The new catch up mechanics make is super easy to get a toon ready, and get started raiding. (We're okay with newb, we're not okay with someone who expects to be carried and doesn't work on themselves or improve in any way)

Raiding with Midnight Carnival

Midnight Carnival's progression team is a Contractual Casual group, meaning we do not do hardcore progression, nor Mythic (Because we don't have a large enough team) but we are NOT an "At Will" casual group. To be on the team you must fill out an Application, meet all minimum requirements, and maintain an 80% or better attendance record. If you, at any time, cease to maintain personal standards or attendance requirements, you will be warned and without subsequent improvement, dropped from the team. ​

Midnight Carnival does also incorporate an "Open Raid" at will Normal Only group, for people learning to raid, learning their class, gearing to join the progression team, and generally just for fun. To sign up for this group, please read the general expectations and then accept this week's invitation on the in-game calendar.  

If this is your attitude, you are not welcome on our team:

Don't be Timmy. Timmy's attitude is pretty common, and we don't have the time, patience, or desire to deal with anyone who thinks that's okay. The Recruiter in this video and the Raid Leader (Ama) have the exact same expectations. Please make sure you meet them before you apply for the team.

Minimum Gear Requirements to Join the Raid Team

You are expected to meet this criteria BEFORE you apply. Please do not apply until you do.

Raid nights are Tuesday & Thursday, 6-9p MST (server). You must commit to both full nights or we cannot accept you to this team. 

  • Max Level (Will not "hold" spots)
  • A sufficient ilvl (Max 20lvls below current tier) Fully Gemmed and Enchanted
  • An Adequate or better DPS/HPS/Mitigation level, appropriate for your class
  • Required addons (see list below)
  • A cooperative non elitist attitude. Shitty/Selfish attitude is grounds for removal.
  • You will be expected to know all boss fights, intimately. You may be called on at any time to lead a fight, (Without prior notice) demonstrating that knowledge. (Especially when new raids are released) You should know basic positioning, and all major role mechanics.

*Target Dummies/LFR are not sufficient indicators of DPS

Expectations once you are accepted:

  • Show up on time, every raid night (See Raid Rules for exceptions) maintaining 80% or better attendance
  • Be Fully Prepared (Repaired, Flasks/Potions ready, Roll Coins already gotten, Addons up to date)
  • Prepare for boss encounters by studying the fight mechanics online AND running LFR, meaning on raid nights you know what you're doing (have a baseline). 
  • Continue to improve your gear between raid nights
  • Have a firm understand of your class and ALL it's mechanics, so they can be properly applied to raid mechanics  
  • Upload combat logs to facilitate progress monitoring.  

Loot Distribution:

Loot is Master Loot distribution. (Reasoning: Personal loot prevents trade, if the item level is higher (an upgrade) meaning gear goes to waste.) As such all raid members are prohibited from pugging or joining a second raid team on the toon with which they raid for us, until our raid week is over (After raid concludes on Thursday) as it reduces our loot table. Raid members are free to raid with whomever they likes ON ALTERNATE CHARACTERS as long as those raid nights to not interfere with our own. 

Rolling on Loot works as follows:

  • You may only roll (until win) ONE Need on your IDEAL stats. (Your top 2 secondaries)
  • You may roll (until win) ONE Need (separate roll) on a tier token.
  • You must roll greed on gear sporting non optimal stats (Your bottom secondaries), if you already used your need, or if you are rolling on teir tokens you already have (looking for bonus stats).
  • If you cannot use an item, or it is not an upgrade at all for you, you must pass.
  • You may roll Need until you win, you must roll greed after you do.
  • BOE's, if not Personal loot, must be Equipped immediately if rolled for, else they go to the Bank for sale.
  • We do not roll for off spec, DE, or Transmog, unless explicitly given permission to do so.

Primary stats for armor slots (Head, Shoulders, Chest, Wrist, Hands, Waist, Legs, Feet) now dynamically change depending on the specialization the character is currently in. Secondary stats do not change based on spec. You are expected to know which Secondary stats are your priorities. If it is haste, and mastery do not roll on gear with crit, for example. 

That means you are not just rolling against other players of your spec (Tank, heals, DPS) you are rolling against everyone in your Armor class (Plate, Mail, Leather, etc.) This may cause tension for loot rolls, but to keep loot distribution fair, You may only NEED on one normal Item and one Teir Item per night. This will reset from week to week. 

This means Looting is 1 Need. Period. 

You may trade loot to reset your Need roll, with permission. When trading gear, please keep in mind that healers and tanks solvency benefits the entire raid. (DPS should really trade gear to a Tank or Healer before anyone else.) 

Required Addons:

Name  Reason Link
Discord Communication (Mic not Required) Discordapp.com*
Deadly Boss Mods (DBM) Combat Timers, Auditory warnings Curse.com

* Requires an account to use. Directions provided in a different thread. 

The addons being required are for accurate monitoring purposes, both for progress facilitation and individual monitoring. They're required to monitor your contribution to your team, and logs need to be uploaded after each raid night for Lead Review. Anyone refusing to install or use any addon may be sat for failure to cooperate. 

Things to note:

  • We will fill the first 10 spots according to the 2T:3H:2M:3R ratio. Too many melee/ranged will need to be sat until more heals apply. 
  • If you play a class we can't use, you will have to be back up (Ex. You are ONLY a tank, and we already have two)
    • Note: Everyone should have a viable main and off spec, for maximum efficiency
  • If we have too many DPS and not enough healers to support them, people will need to be sat. We will maintain the 2T:3H:2M:3R ratio as closely as possible with whom we take. (If we need heals and you CAN heal, change your spec, gear it, and do it. People who cannot adapt are more likely to be sat)
  • Whining about needing a piece of gear and someone else got it will not be tolerated. Put on your big kid panties and deal with it.
  • If you are Lazy, being carried, and unprepared, you may not raid. You will not be invited and you will be removed mid-raid if necessary.

The Guild has Set up a Facebook Group for just the raid team in order to Facilitate Call outs, Strategy Sharing, and helping one another. If you are accepted, please join at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/MCRaidTeam/
