PvP > PvE

This is something that new applicants need to think real hard about before applying. Yes, we do raids and instances but PvE raid attendence is never mandated.

This means that if you schedule a raid for next Wednesday and half the healers are PK'ing in Battlegrounds, you don't get to complain and no officer in this guild is going to start mandating attendence. I personally would rather look at the guildlist and know everyone is having fun and doing what they want than see people dragged into something they'd rather not do.

Good PvP needs good gear and good gear means some trips to instances but if you feel you need the best gear in the game before you can safely begin PvP then you're looking at the wrong guild. We can and will pick fights at times where it would be easier to just level. If we wanted to play an easy game we would not have joined a PvP server.


Individual Independence & Self-Reliance

Sometimes people think of a guild as a support structure for themselves and I'm here to tell you that The Purge is not this. We're all friendly, casual players but there's not always going to be a group ready to go for you and if you're getting your ass kicked in Ungoro Crater there's not always going to be a team standing by to bail you out.

Be independent and self-reliant. There's a guildlist and allied channels to help you find groups with and provide helpful PvP suggestions through but be prepared to stand on your own two feet. Strong teams start with strong individual players. Strong players know how to handle a serious corpsecamping without requiring a bunch of people to drop what they're doing and come help you.


Relax, take a load off

We're casual. I think the majority of our members put in 10-30 hours a week. This sort of ties in with #1: organizing a serious week long Molten Core run may not be as practical as the guild roster suggests because not everyone on the roster is here for hardcore PvE raiding. A lot of us burned out on deadlines and schedules from EQ raiding and choose to play WOW in a more relaxed manner.

Along the same lines, guildchat is a mild affair. When someone says you suck, odds are pretty good they mean it in a light ribbing sort of way, not a bitter GeneralChat sort of way. Joining The Purge should mean giving up your defensive ways. If someone is truely being vicious in guildchat, we'll deal with that.


<The Purge> guildtag = Some people go out of their way to hate you

For some reason, Alliance don't like getting stabbed in the back while fighting mobs. Similarly, Horde who have friends in the Alliance are always strangely upset when we burn their friend to the ground with fireballs. Consequently, some people go out of their way to target Purge members.

If you enjoy PvP (cornerstone 1!) then you will find this to be exciting and interesting and will ultimately make the game more enjoyable.

If you do not enjoy PvP then perhaps there is a better guild for you, which the Alliance will be friendlier with. If you're really into that sort of thing.

Just for a bit of a modern day update...

Some may wonder what our guild's focus is. We like PvP but we do Molten Core? We don't mandate raid attendence? What is it we're trying to accomplish here, anyway?


This guild's focus is getting a bunch of good people together to play a computer game.


That's all.


If we can get enough good people together to conduct regular 40 man raids, then that's what we'll do. If we're short on manpower, we'll do our best to search for good allies and good players to work with us to accomplish the goals we want.

Many guilds simply seek warm bodies. Their focus may be PvP or PvE, but when they find they don't have enough people, they just grab people off the street. That's the path to asshats and drama.

We can't always guarentee that we'll have a 40 man PvE raid ready to go when you want it. We can't always guarentee that we'll be able to fill up a Battleground team when you want it. But bring your friends and family and help us recruit good people and whatever we do, at least you know it won't involve a bunch of douschbags.


No game lasts forever and at the end of it all, the important thing is you've found a good group of gamers. We try to keep the guildchat to PG-13, we make it easy to recruit your real life friends and family and we'll do our best to explore the entire game, from battlegrounds to the deepest darkest raid dungeon, to the best of our ability without having to stoop to recruiting asshats.

If that's what you're looking for then you've come to the right place.
