Winter holidays are over. And that means that after month of clearing Datascape we are finally all together again. That means we are ready to continue our journey.
Space pirates were terrorizing planet Nexus for long time now. And now, when they received ancient artifact - the Mask of Mog-mog, - they are threaten like never before. And this mean that they need to be stopped!
It was very long way to us to get to this point, but we all are here, waiting to conquer even more then we have achieved. Avatus kill was not the end of our journey it was only the begining and today we will have our first step. So lets do it together!

Avatus is dead! Finally!
Most of new core started as a child, with no knowledge about this game. And we all walked this way together from x-89 progression to Avatus kill. Path wasn't easy, but we had conquer all difficulties and now we are all here, victorious.
Sometimes we are missing about the old core. And maybe old core were good, but they haven't killed Avatus. While new Core - did. We all together overcome guild old achievements and now we are moving forward - to unseen Redmoon Terror.
I am very proud about each and every one of you. You all have done a great job. But there are still so many things to improve and to conquer. So our journey is far-far from ending.
So lets go forward, set Avatus on farm, and kill the rest of pairs. Especially hard ones like Water+Fire. No one will match our power. And after that we can finaly progress Redmoon Terror. Raid on which there are no guides, raid where too many things unknown, so we all would be investigating them together and progressing till finale.
And let Laveka's head be hanged on wall of every guildie!

Today is a big day for the new core!
System Daemons, the Gatekeepers, were downed for the first time! And now the Gates have opened to us, so we can enjoy wild and beautiful world of Datascape. More bosses there to conquer, more challenges to complete.
We have done a great job from wiping on Kuralak for few days to clearing GA in one day and killing these monsters - System Daemons. It took us near 200 wipes this time, even with overgear from contracts. The hardest thing here was getting a stable roster - people were comming and going away all the time. But only those who remained - became victorious.
That was a long way but it was totaly worth it. I am happy that we are going forward now, and the biggest boulder in our way is gone.
So lets enjoy this cool raid and looking forward for Avatus kill.

Summer always was a tough time for any guilds in MMO's. And we were no exception. Summer took some folks, but only to fill empty spaces with fresh blood.
During last month we've overcome many challenges and started successfully raiding. All our last raids had 17-18 members of our guild, and almost no pugs. Most of them were new to raiding or new to Wildstar. But all of them have proven: they are all fastlearners. And in despite all of them have low gear levels and no experience — we are finishing raids on Ohmna attempts. Even cruel and horrifying Convergence got slain by our hands. A bit more gear and experience — and even Ohmna will fall during our two raiding days. And last of raid time we will spend in incredibly beautiful Datascape. We will kill Probes to get some 116 ilvl gear. And will try to kill System Daemons. We were once with new roster on them for 2 hours, and we managed to go through second Pillar Phase! That is huuuge. Everyone now has some experience from them, especially tanks, so they must be not that much a problem anymore. That means they will fall eventually under pressure of our claws and psyblades! And after Daemons killed — whole beauty of Datascape will be open. With experience of our officers and raidleader, we will cut throug Avatus's minioun like knife throug butter.
And at the time when Redmoon Terror would be fully released and major bug fixes become true (and of course there would be bugs! Nothing is Purrrfect. Except me, ofc) — we will be ready to meet space pirate fleet and make a stand on their flagship. And, oh the Holy God Drusera, we will give them a fight! Mordechai will pay for all his lasers and wipes in Skullcano! We will kill him. Again. This time — completely. And we'll show Laveka who is real badass on this planet Nexus!
Long road is seen ahead of us. But very fun road, full of joy, discoveries and excitement. And all of this happend only because of you, in general and each of you personaly. Because guild is like a family, our family.
In anticipation of new wins, sincerely yours

Ok, so last night I had a revelation. Due to some comments I got after the DS pug. Everything came together:
I suddenly knew exactly why Bladesong fell apart and why this direction we are currently on is failing.
1. Wildstar raiding is hard. It is. Its important to have clear calls, and solid support staff to fill those roles, and we have been super lacking in that department. (me included) We are working on it
2. Pugs are not the solution to any problem with the raids. Pugs are not the way.
3. By slowly building the new core we also get more manageable raids, when more people find out/get experience how how good Wildstar raids is, its gonna have a snowball effect. All these (5-6k) fresh 50's wanna raid, they just dont know it yet.
So my plan is to step back from Datascape (!?) to focus on building a new core through GA.
Maybe go on a SD now and again to keep people in. If my long term plan is successful I should only take 2-3 weeks to have a new core average ilvl 100+. We can then use our new core to progress in DS again. And with our old experience and knowledge that should take considerable less amount of time than the progression we already did.
This might be boring for some of our old and seasoned DS raiders, but I truly belive this is what we have to do to keep the guild going.
OUR ULTIMATE GOAL:
Yes, our ultimate goal is to clear all the 20-man content in this game.
This includes Datascape (even Avatus), Normal Augmentors and Hardmentors. And in August Red Moon Terror.
Stick around, its an awesome guild with lots of great people, there is still lots of fun to be had

OK lets make an update!
Ok, so Medisive Proxxan usually does these, but he is on a vacation in Australia and then to France! Im Knox "the interrim GM".
So our last few raids have been utter shit not up to our usual standards, and thats kinda fine. We still love raiding and keep on truckin'
This new website is gonna change things up a little bit.
We can have active discussions about the encounters - guides and strategy.
I want an active forum
Obligatory front page post mention about the "new" officers Fire Gore (who made this amazing site) and Remilia Grim that is essential to this guild moving forward through the dry-spell.
People should sign up so that I wont have to spend 5-6 hours finding pugs before every raid
- Isilda Knox
It's been a while since i did an update - sorry about that!
In the last few months we've had an incredibly stable raiding roster - with about 25-30 players being retained and thus meaning that the later stages of Datascape have been very smooth progression, cracking the other Pairs (11/15 now!) and a few nights on Avatus - our roster is something to be proud of - considering the problems that other guilds have had!
Having said this, Summer time coming close + very bad recent content (Arcterra WHY?!?!) + general Wildstar burnout has meant that apart from raiding - we've become a pretty inactive guild. This is partly my fault - i've found it difficult recently to prioritise Wildstar over other Real life activities, and when i do get the time to game, unapologetically Wildstar has not been the game that i want to play.
The entire game feels as if it's waiting on steam launch to relaunch, yet let's not get our hopes up - rolling some alts around that time would be a great idea, so we can get our Genetic Archives runs going again with some new members possibly. Also i'd love it if we can get suggestions from our members as to events we can do in game to keep us logging in!
But Overall - i just want to say that we need to keep pushing on Avatus and the final pairs! me and the officer team appreciate everything that we all do to keep our awesome community going.
