Omega squadron Downs Avatar in only 160 pulls & Disbanding of Alpha Squadron

Congrats to Omega Squadron for Avatar. Enjoy Super fun Kil'jaeden!

This post is also to state that Alpha Squadron has decided to call it a day. ToS took a lot out of the raiders who raided it; too much grinding and soaking while a very oppressive atmosphere due to those mechanics has meant that players will either go social or do external raiding. I wish you all well.

This means that IS is back to a one team guild. Will Omega Squadron keep the name Omega Squadron? Stay tuned!

Realm First! Kil'jaeden. Alpha Squadron 9/9 Mythic!

Horrible boss. Fuck this tier.

Brutal boss. I got the strats wrong in many ways forcing a 3 tank, but it's dead. Grats to all past and present members of IS for the kill - everyone who has been with us since January, or even left, deserve a shoutout.

Kill Pic:

Kill Vid inc!

IS Nerdscreams:

The kill came as something as a surprise - we lost 2 days of progress due to instance lag (on behalf of literally EVERY guild on Silvermoon, can you do something about this, Blizzard? Fair race is one thing, but having one guild lag out which rotates is irritating) and had roster issues / RL problems dogging us. However, cometh the hour, cometh the Penkek Marker.

This ends Tomb, which has been pretty much one of the worst tiers for raiding overall in my opinion. Soak mechanics, artifical checks put in place by soak checks, and bosses that require double the wipes of the first. Avatar was a good ending, but KJ. Less said about this the better.

Hope Antorus is better. Certainly I'd like to have an entire mass res button, Argus style!

This leaves Alpha Squadron 9/9 Mythic, and rebuilding for Antorus! Apply now. Finishing at a respectful World 141, with only 3 days p/w, no added days, no extend, just 10:30 of pure raiding focus.

Omega Squadron are 7/9 Mythic with avatar soon to be dead.

As my post has been leaked anyway, I'll hijack this to say, yes I am going social due to RL and burnout and leave on these words.

See you on the social side.

Omega Squadron - 7/9 Mythic, Alpha Squadron - 8/9 Mythic

Avatar dead for Alpha Squad

Great fight tbh. Exception of P2 Dark Marks. It's really one of the better fights in ToS, sadly negated by the need to stack immunes. The damage of Dark M in P2 is enough, but the knockback into tornado is fucking brutal and forced us to basically do a power P1 strat where we could sac in P2.

It's dead though, and as regular viewers of the stream can see my blood pressure got lessened. I was close to a nervous, mental breakdown clearly. Fuck this tier.

Maiden dead for Omega Squad! - 7/9

After just under 80 wipes maiden goes down. wasn't as much of a challenge as mistress, but nonetheless a fantastic job by our team. avatar up next for us!

Come and join us if you want to experience a similar environment to the above!

GM word here: For Omega Squad to be 7/9 Mythic and Alpha to be 8/9 Mythic shows just how effective IS has become at dealing with the over-grinding of Legion and the construction of raid teams as a whole. Proud of you all.

Come and get your black bin bags
