...the day Equinotix and that alliance raiding guild (their name eludes me now) did that quest in moonglade to open AQ and The Purge brought down the thunder on those guys and the server crashed 3 times before the quest was completed? That was definetly my favorite memory of my year and a half of WoW

"Target the Healers!!!"

Good stuff, the only reason i would ever play WoW again would be for the awsome experience with The Purge, you guys are great, keep kicking Alliance butt!

The background of the story was this:

Aelis (a member of <P v P>) was told by <Equinoctis> to leave the zone. I wasn't there (we were in BGs), so Aelis will have to give you the whole story, but from what he said on Vent, they were telling all non-PvE guilds and lowbie characters to vacate the zone as it was becoming too crowded and laggy.

How it started:

The mixed Purge/PvP crew was running AB at the time (I was still a few weeks away from HWL) when Aelis busted in the Vent channel and told us that he was pretty much ordered to leave. So we asked him why, of course. Turns out that the Alliance and the Horde apparently had to work together in order to bring the mob(s) down, or some kinda handholding shit like that. Needless to say, all of us basin runners decided to put the AB games on hold and go check this out for ourselves, especially given the rude way EQ and the others had treated him.

Bulgy, Khragrum, Bones, and Aelis started gathering up the <P v P> guys, while me and <The Purge> in AB started grabbing Purge folks. All in all, we ended up with a full raid force--I think we even had a few overflow folks. Ahh, the fun was about to begin!

So we arrive in the zone, and whoa! Lagfest! Not only that, there's a bunch of PvE-oriented chat in /general, stuff about the health of the mobs, their locations, etc. I also see some stuff about protecting "the Alliance healers". So just to stir the pot, in /general I typed "target the Alliance healers, kill ALL red names you see".

BOOM! My screen lit up with tells. Lol! I remember Parkour yelling "WHAT ARE YOU DOING CK!? I THOUGHT YOU WERE COOL!" Then Restless started spamming me with some less-pleasant things, and a few others here and there. The best part? Grenix ORDERING me to leave the zone, and take <The Purge> and <P v P> guys with me.

I don't remember much of the actual fight, it was so laggy and I was being barraged with tells, plus someone had put up a thread on the CR forums bashing <The Purge> and <P v P> for coming to the zone and griefing, so I was alt/tabbing to read it (incidentally, the thread went to, like, 12 pages in one night, and was filled with some pretty witty comments by Purge folk! Wish we could resurrect it). But I do remember hearing on Vent how Arius and Fron from <Ewiges Licht> were being corpse camped and how all alliance healers had a massive rez timer from so many deaths. Also, I remember hearing someone on Vent saying something like "that other Alliance guild is over by the guards now", and someone else saying "Well, let's just kill the guards, too".

Lawl...oh man. Memories! :wink:

I wish I still had my old screenies. I think I had a few from that night.

So long as the allies attacked you first I have no problem with this.

I think I was pvping with Rhoh's AB group when is started to go down. A <PVP> warlock summoned me and the fun began. The part I remember the most was the fact that everybody in the zone kept getting healed by the NPCs. We killed healer types left and right but it was pretty much auto-win for the alies. The most fun was getting rallied onto a bridge by someone and charging mounted, in mass, to the center of the carebears. It was a good day to be in the purge.

Well I have two Screens from that day, I was too busy having an awesome time to take more. 8>

Yup..
As my favorite saying goes..."Welcome to our PVP server"
I whole heartedly believe that every world event should be handled in this manner. If you want to have world events that are not interfered with.. roll PvE server.

That was back when rank 11 could talk on the server-wide realm defense channel. I remember telling everyone that some phat loots were going to drop from a dragon and even level 1 guys could get a purple. Just msg a warlock for a summon. :>

Good times!

Who was it we were griefing when they tried to kill Azuregos that caused a bunch of whining?

Haha that moonglade event was super awesome. I remember logging in midway through, not knowing wtf was happening, hearthing to moonglade, thinking it was a bit laggy for some reason, and blithely going "oh an alliance not in range of the guards" and jacking him randomly, as one does.

Then I notice a bunch of Purge running around, someone says "hey Raejin is here, get him in the raid" and I'm still like "wtf is going on?", and only then do I notice the big cerberus reskin mob running around, Omen or whatever?, and suddenly it clicks that we're officially bringing pvp to a pvp server (gasp!), making bluebies actually work for their shit. Sweet times, wasn't actually too bad for honour points either if I remember right!
