Greetings,

Three years ago, on 30.11.2013, I was invited to Unique with my hunter Crausader. It was one of my happiest days on VG. Raiding again, with many people that I knew from the past (2011/2012 raids), and new ones that I was going to meet. Did I know that this day was going to start the most epic journey in my whole VG history? Did I know, that I was going to become the Guild Master for over two years for some of the greatest players VG ever had? To progress with them many times from scratch until the very top? No, I was not aware at all.

You see. There are certain things, which just simply happens. Things we cannot predict. Things we should not expect. Because when we are expecting something to happen, these expectations, overthinking or longing may ruin the outcome. We have to let things naturally develop, but there is a catch: These things have to stay in harmony with ourselves.
This is my personal story of Unique. The story of achieving goals with international group, while keeping true to myself and in harmony with my inner beliefs, as I do not regret even a single decision made through all these years.

Now, to the point. I want to announce my stepping down as Guild Master of Unique. I have made that decision a few weeks ago, as my real life tasks are getting harder to keep up with guild leadership and all the responsibilities I possessed in my hands for years. The next few months are going to be busier and harder for me. I never forgot, what Bloodpet noted over two years ago: "Running guilds sometimes feels like a full-time job. When the real life gets in its way and starts demanding more time and attention, it is best to back off a bit, not letting a game become a burden."

Moreover, I was supposed to make only one announcement, but the highest guild management (Bloodpet, Nela and Smrda) came to agreement to stop Unique's journey. It means that Unique is not going to raid anymore. This was a result of no possibility in splitting tasks, which I have held on my shoulders for quite some time, among others.

With that being said, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Bloodpet and Smrda, who were always here for Unique and me. Like three musketeers! Without their friendship and support Unique would not be the same, and would not successfully sail on VanillaGaming's waters for such a long time.
Secondly, special thanks are going to people, who were continuously raiding with us for many years until the very end: Gorgeuss (Biological), Kurayami (Woodknight), Mansoura, Medel, Mikibullseye, Rimle (Tyrul) and Samthebst.
Finally, many thanks to all the players who were part of Unique at some point of our cruise, and those who supported or cooperated with us. I would like to write all of your names. Unfortunately, there are too many of you to mention at once, but do not worry, I have a good memory.

From this day, all of you are part of history. Unique's history.
Thank you for all memories.

Best regards,
Nela

The time has come for Unique to face its only yet undefeated enemy - the Four Horsemen of Naxxramas. Let us not get discouraged by their mockery nor warnings, for they shall meet their defeat by our hands soon enough!

What that means for you, is that till this Sunday´s raid, you need to:
- read the respective tactics for your role: Tanks, DPS, Healers
- bring full progression consumables, including SR pots and FR pots
- come on time, as we will start sundays raid earlier than usual
- download the new VG edition BigWigs addon

To further motivate you in your preparations:
- you are allowed to withdraw items from the gbank exceeding the 100 DKP limit
- progression DKP will be increased to 100 per hour!

See you all this Sunday at 18:00 in EPL.

Welcome The Claw!
Thanks to our recent merger, the long-lasting days of low attendance raids are now over for Unique and we can all start working together towards our goals - reprogressing all content up to the yet unconquered Four Horsemen of Naxxramas.
We hope all of you will find a new home in Unique and we are looking forward to our future cooperation.



The other news is, we decided (with regard to the results of the recent poll) to finally cut the fourth raid day Thursday and make it truly an "optional" raid day -
meaning it will only be used every now and then and not on regular basis.
Less is sometimes more, thus we shall now focus on making our raids more time efficient and even more fun!

Greetings,

There are a few remarkable things to mention.

As we all know, attendance during Summer Time is changing very fast. If you are going on e.g. 1 or 2 (etc) weeks of vacation, let us know about it beforehand by post creation in the topic below:
http://unique-vanillagaming.shivtr.com/forum_threads/2086043
This is going to save your current rank as "ninja" inactivity (unannounced one) may result in rank demotion.

Second news requires more attention. It has the code name VAS.
Enjoy the lecture about it below:

Have a nice day,

We have over the last month, killed a new boss in Naxxramas every week.
It is a good job all together. which that said, it is important to understand that we all need to develop into better players and focus even more on learning about our role and our class.(This is even to those who have played for a very long time on this server, don't think you can't become better because yes you can indeed.)

  • Reaction.
  • The correct rotation to
    • max DPS both on single target and multi-targets.
    • do the most effective healing and less mana wasting.
  • Use consumables to speed up our raids.
  • Keep up your buffs - get a buff tracker if you are unsure who is missing your buff(s).
  • Less negative energy – Keep in mind that there are many ways to give feedback and as well to accept feedback. The communication is not the best in Unique and many players will just have to accept this and stop their negative way of thinking.

It is important to have an understanding of that summer comes closer and closer for every week that passes. This also means that some will be more inactive than others will. Therefore, we must all help each other as a team to get new players to make applications to our guild.

Questions to reflect on: What can I as a player do better. What are my strengths and weaknesses.

Greetings,

last week we had a very good progression. We made our way back into Naxxramas and killed Anub'Rekhan.

The following weeks will we be facing a lot of changes which we all hope will be accepted very positive.

The newest changes in our guild is the following:

- Kourtney received Officer promotion. Three cheers!
- WebDKP addon will be no longer in use. We are going to use GuildDKP addon, which supports storing DKP in your guild notes.

Remember guys, that we are going to invade Naxxramas more often, so read up tactics, farm flasks and other usefull consumables.

Have a nice day,
Unique's Management Team
