ragnaroshm25funny1.png After around 370 attempts, an incredible amount of work, effort and heart on the part of the entire guild Tyranny has achieved one of its biggest ever victories and Defeated Heroic Ragnaros 25 on 10/26/11 at US #79.

Although opinion is divided in the guild between this and Heroic Lich King, this is without a doubt one of the most demanding encounters we've ever done, on the level of M'uru, Kil'Jaeden, Yogg+0, and yes, Heroic Lich King. We've had no favors done for us on this boss. We dealt with Hurricanes, burn out, schedule conflicts, computer problems of sorts. Some old faces departed, but some great new faces joined in the course of it. The guild never gave up. It never lost faith! Tweak after tweak, nuance after nuance, breakthrough night and pointless wipe night... the guild persevered, and achieved its historic victory. This was a big f'n deal. Why?


Because Firelands and Heroic Rag is the reason Tyranny 3.0 exists. We broke up after four years of non-stop raiding in early January, and reformed in the end of March, all about clearing Tier 11, but with our eye for Firelands being our coming out party. In March and April, everything we did was looking forward to this raid instance. We started it with very high ranked kills (see right), we had people raid on vacations, from Europe, on Birthdays and get their friends over here to help the effort. And it took months. But what a way to finish it, to be so completely back in the saddle, and higher ranked than we've ever been at this point in an expansion. The guilds reason for being, for reforming, has been validated.

Rag is the kind of fight that comes along once a year, and is in many ways the best kind of fight because winning a fight like this and hearing the cheers on vent certifies it as truly a whole guild victory. Every member has seen hundreds of attempts and devoted weeks of work. Everyone felt the pressure to perform and the sting of setbacks. Everyone devoted time to up their game, be it healers running every which comp for hundreds of attempts with 3 then 4 then 3 to DPS moving average DPS frm the mid 20ks to the mid-high 30ks. This is the reason why we raid is to wipe, recover and hear peoples insights, then execute a small change, and see what happens until the win comes.

The iterative process of strat design, the coreography and cordination is raiding. There hasn't ever been a fight like Rag to this degree, and truly the very best of Tyranny was brought out in it. This is an exclamation point, a foundation, for where the guild plans to go in 4.3 / Dragonsoul. Congratulations Tyranny. We just beat something very damn hard.

So what's next? 4.3 and the Madness Deathwing, which will be the next fight like this. It's not over.... it never ends.
