PUG Signup and rules / Held Hostile PUG Rules - MC
« Last post by DeAurion on November 20, 2019, 08:39:37 pm »
These are the rules applied to our MC PUG Raids, generally the rule is that main specialization has priority over other spezializations.

Players acting poorly will be removed from the raid immediately and/or added to blacklist and will not be invited for future raids. To participate in the raid you have to be present on discord voice channel, we do not require you to speak. This allows us to communicate better.

Loot Rules
Generally loot will be distributed by rolls. The players that want the item performs a /roll, where the highest roller wins. This is, of course, subject to the other rules listed below.

Loot Priority
The base rule is that if you can equip the item you may roll. However your "role" and "talent specialization" (as agreed when you sign for the raid) can give you higher or lower priority on certain items ahead of other players that does not have the same role or talent specialization. There is no complete list of all items and their role/spec priority (subject to change), if there is a disagreement we generally respect the sensus of the raid. Some items can be found below however.

Example 1 - Rogues:
Rogues are considered to have one role (melee DPS) but two distinct specializations. "Sword specialization" and "Dagger specialization". A rogue with dagger specialization will have a lower priority (Off spec) for swords and rogues with swords will have lower priority (Off spec) on daggers.

Example 2 - Band of Accuria:
The Band of Accuria is a "Best in Slot" item for several roles and classes. We have chosen to give priority to: DPS Warriors, Rogues (Sword/Dagger), Hunters.
This is also a "Best in Slot" threat maximizing item for tanks, but we have choosen to not give tanks priority on this item.

Example 3 - Aurastone Hammer and Azuresong Mageblade:
For Aurastone Hammer, priority is given to Holy Paladins and Resto Druids. Priests are excluded due to the availability of other itemization options. The Azuresong Mageblade is reserved for caster DPS, i.e. Mages and Warlocks. Paladins are restricted due to the fact that the Aurastone Hammer (which they have priority on) is almost exactly as good.

Example 4 - Eye of Divinity, Ancient Petrified Leaf:
Any player of the right class can roll on these, "Roll Penalty" does not apply on the roll, BUT if you win the item you will incur a roll penalty for subsequent rolls.

Roll Penalty
Players having priority on a specific item, a.k.a. MS or Main Specialization pay for this "privilige" by incurring a penalty for each item they reveive that will lower the probability of then taking an additional item. This happens in the form of a "Roll Penalty, a subtraction of 20 from their next roll, see example below. Players without priority on a specific item, a.k.a. OS or "Off Specialization", will only be allowed to roll on an item if no Main Specialisation (MS) wants the item. Taking an item as "OS" will not give you a "Roll Penalty".

You have won 2 MS items already and roll for a 3rd MS item. You roll a perfect 100, which means your score will be calculated as 100 - 2x 20 = 60. If another player that did not yet take an item happens to roll 61, he will win the item, not you.

You have won 1 MS item and 1 OS item already and roll for another MS item. You roll a perfect 100, which means your score will be calculated as 100 - 20 = 80. If another player that did not yet take an item happens to roll 81, he will win the item, not you.

Legendaries should be considered reserved by the organisers of the raid and will be distributed by raid leaders as they see fit. As a non-Held-Hostile-member you are unlikely to qualify for a legendary item.               

Sulfuron Ingot
Special rules apply to the Sulfuron Ingot. If you can show the raid leaders that you have the "Eye of Sulfuras" you will be given the ingot (or roll if several players have it). If no player in the raid has the Eye of Sulfuras, it will be kept by the guild bank.

"Bind on Equip" epics
Normally BoE epics are handled like any other epic. However, if nobody wants a BoE item, it will be sent to the Held Hostile guild bank.

People who can learn a receipe, i.e. right profession, high enough skill) can roll. A recipe will not cause a Roll Penalty and Roll Penalties does not apply to a recipe roll. YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO LEARN THAT RECIPE IF YOU WIN!
If a Majority of the raid members are from Held Hostile, specific recipes can be reserved by the guild."

Resistance gear
Non-set items with resistance on them, such as "Flamewalker Legplates" or "Crimson Shocker", may be handed out by the raid leaders to choosen players that need high resistance on certain fights (e.g. Ragnaros) "free of charge" if nobody wants the item on MS.

Frequently asked questions:

Do I need to be level 60?
No, but 55+ is probably a good idea. But by all means, apply when ever you feel ready.

I played with you in Vanilla, 15 years ago, do I get invited automatically now?
If e.g. DeAurion or Grillspett remember you, of course! Unless you were one of the few we kicked out. Then we would need to see some evidence of major personal growth first.

Server/Realm Announcements: Blizzard Post

English Language servers:

GehennasPVPEnglish<-- We will play here

Check this one: Nordic
In order to avoid "Spain-breaker" or simmilar - we will check this site to see where the "Nordic" community ends up.

Apparently Nordic Classic decided for Shazzrah, so Shazzrah it is!

Update 3:
Blizzard thought perhaps 80 000 players might be too much per server.. so they added one more. Gehennas. Apparently Nordic Classic decided to move, we will wait a bit and see what happens to the populations. So far we stay on Shazzrah.

Update 4:
There is a new Blizzard post begging us to move to Gehennas - So we will! Blizzard is promising queues of vastly longer than 10 000 players at launch, so we had better move. These sections from the blue post is key:

There are a lot of players currently on Shazzrah and we want Gehennas to fill up before we open any new PvP realms.

Please also note that our realm population estimates of Low, Medium, High, and Full are based on this increased capacity (referring to layering/sharding) – a Medium realm today already has more characters on it than even the most crowded realms did back in 2006.

Welcome to the recruitment pages of Held Hostile. As happy as we are that you have chosen to apply to our humble guild, we are also sorry to notify you that unless your class is on the "needed classes list" below, you may be in for a long wait getting a formal yes/no, since all the officers of the guild also have other engagements.

While being a friendly guild Held Hostile is not a perpetual charity event. Your usefulness to us largely dictates if you may join us or not. However, having gear is no guarantee, we have several times chosen candidates with less gear but better attitude over players with good gear and a bad attitude. Spend a lot of effort on your application, use your best English and let your personality shine through. Your application is the face we see when we decide if you should be contacted or not. Incomplete applications will not be answered, be sure to address all questions in this topic.

Best of luck!

Dear friends and complete strangers,
HeldHostile will make an effort to revive for WoW Classic. Following the server-detail-reveals the weekend of 10/11th of August we will pick a server and announce here on the forums and in the "main game" GMOTD.

On the 12th (night to 13th) playing members are encouraged to log on and reserve their names.

Classic Discussion

Character name reservation for WoW Classic opens next week on August 12 at 22:00 GMT / August 13 at 00:00 CEST. Players with an active subscription or game time on their World of Warcraft account will be able to create up to three characters per WoW account and have the name(s) reserved before WoW Classic releases worldwide on August 26 at 22:00 GMT / August 27 at 00:00 CEST.

We will release details regarding realm names and realm types later this week so you can coordinate with your friends on where to begin your adventure. If there are high numbers of players congregating on individual realms during the name reservation/character creation process, we will post warnings about the potential for long queues on those realms, giving you time to choose alternate realms. Also please note: Character creation will be limited to only one faction per realm on PvP realms.

After release, the number of WoW Classic character that can be created per WoW game account will change to the following limits:

A maximum of 10 characters per WoW Classic realm.
A maximum of 50 characters across all WoW Classic realms in your region.
Only one faction per realm on PvP realms.
There is no overlap regarding character limits with World of Warcraft, so if you have 50 characters in Battle for Azeroth you can create 50 more characters in WoW Classic.

WoW Classic’s worldwide release is almost here so it’s time to get started organizing and planning your path to level 60!
