Once upon a time, there was noise, and there was light. And lo! ZGC was born.

What exactly *is* ZGC is something that I could quite easily spend several paragraphs explaining, but basically - we are dancing bears. We are hunters with mana-regen gear. We are uber raiders and people who've never raided before ever. We are gnomes with childhood issues. We are priests who try to assassinate casters with Power Infusion. We are robots in disguise. And I am Ryu Hayabusa.

ZGC is a raidgroup that raids (first surprise!) Zul'Gurub and Ahn'Qiraj. We've been pretty damn successful in the former, and we're just getting started on the latter. We use no DKP system, and are the definitive meaning of the words awesome, casual, insane, and gerbil. Don't ask about the last one.

Whilst we currently just do ZG and AQ, there's much talk and possible plans about going onto higher planes and challenges. I'm not sure what Weâ„¢ mean by that - Spitfires and B-52 Bombers, I guess. Probably to exterminate gnomes with.

So. Yes. Right. We're looking for a Few Good Men - and I do not mean an awful film starring Tom Cruise - to join us and, basically, kill/heal stuff and have a good time. Class does not matter. Gear does not matter. Raid experience does not matter. What matters is that you're generally crazy and ultra skilled, or ultra crazy and generally skilled. If you're interested, or think you might be interested, the forums are at:

http://webservices.math.uio.no/zg/

The relevant application bit is somewhere in the information bit, right at the top. All the questions for joining are very serious, so answer them carefully. Oh, and whilst class doesn't *really* matter, we particularly like Druids, Paladins, Priests and Warlocks at the moment.

That is all. Run. Run while you can!

I think you might just be right.

I rate it Awesome/10.

Indeed it is, that's why I... right, scuse me, don't talk about ZGC 8). Anyway, check out the site, it's full of this kind of junk. I mean intellectual garbage. I mean... :?

Small question though: any idea when the recruitment drive will stop? Cause I've got a pally friend who'd really like to join, but he won't be back for another month and a half...

You're right. I lied. =(

On a positive note:

What other raid alliance features the classic action comic strip Azeroth Is Not Enough?

Hehe, does that mean I must keep a count on how many epics I have laying around at all time?

I'll go with the slightly modified:

+ The chance to have someone with MORE EPICS THAN YOU talk to you like a gnome being!

For anyone wanting to raid for giggles and not just for loot I can't recomend these highly enough. I've been a couple of times just helping them when they needed that extra member until others came online and had a good time, well worth it :)

Shameless update - due to the fact we both A: went into Molten Core recently, and B: were 10 people short, we may still be looking for moar people. MOAR! We're something between informal and casual, and awesome and insane.

But only if you like using evocative words.

Your character name (how boring)
Your class (HOLY SHIT)
Your level of insanity on a scale from 1 to 10 (hello fellow road crew worker)
If you know anyone else in ZGC (because we're so damn insular, man)
Whether you intend on being at EVERY RAID EVER (Saturday + Monday + Wednesday are OURS, fool! with priority to Monday)
Your talent specialisation, roughly (don't worry, we're not talent nazis. I mean jesus, I'm a fire mage)
Your equipment, roughly (this matters incredibly little btw, but just give us a *rough idea*)
Your avatar's appearance, roughly (this matters a lot. do you look stylish? do you KNOW you look stylish? or do you wear dishwasher gloves?)
Your flaws and idiosyncracies (I have pyromania, egomania, and megalomania, for example)
Your star sign (we're not compatible with Libra)
Your date of birth (we prefer recruiting people born during a leap year)
Your gender (it's important to know if you have delusions of being female)
Your favourite book genre (sci-fi? biographical? horror? important question)
Your life story (we like to know how you got here)
Your initial thoughts on the subject of Chaos Theory (are you a sceptic? does it exist?)
Your opinion on whether answering the previous question will have tremendous repercussions? (BUTTERFLY EFFECT! BUTTERFLY EFFECT!)
Your eye colour (forgot that one)
Your favourite band (Magetallica? Oasis? Rammstein?)
Your moral code of conduct (if applicable)
Your slavish devotion to me, if any (see, I told you I was a megalomaniac)
Your hatred of gnomes (DIE EVIL CREATURES)
Your favourite joke, ever (and if it doesn't make me laugh you aren't joining)


lol love it
