Well, this expansion has certainly gone a little different than most of us expected. I have had a few people ask me in game why our front page isn’t being updated with all sorts of new mythic kills. The answer may be a surprise to many, but it is simply that TRG is no longer raiding mythic content.
The next question I get is “well is the guild dead”?? The answer to that is a resounding NO. It’s true that our raid team has decided to call it quits, but TRG is still alive and well. What most people don’t realize is that TRG was a social guild long before we ever downed progression content, and with this expansion we have returned to those roots. We have always enjoyed a casual player base, and now we have the opportunity to focus on that base. There is almost a decade’s worth of casual players/retired raiders/friends that hold a fond place in their heart for TRG, and for that reason we know the guild isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. While certainly a bit quieter than it used to be, on any given night there are plenty of us leveling, gearing alts, and running mythic 5-man content for the pure joy of the game and playing together… without the pressure and drama that progression raiding brought us. TRG is a community, and while the prestigious raid ranks were always a bonus, it’s not what keeps everyone playing together. All in all, I think we are in a pretty good place.
That being said, while I expect this front page to stay pretty quiet for the foreseeable future. I would invite any players who want to hang with us to join us in game on on the TRG forums and kill a few more digital monsters. It has been great to see and play with all sorts of new friends and old that the expansion brought back. While many of our raid core has now joined other teams, most are staying in touch as I expected. The door is always open to guild mates past, present, and future! Looking forward to see you guys out there!

With our second group finishing 13/13M we have achieved our goals for Warlords of Draenor and are now counting down the days to Legion. Our roster is looking stronger than ever but we are always on the lookout for outstanding players. If you you are a parsing monster and you’re looking for a fun, stable, (relatively) mature environment to raid with for years to come then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The technical difficulties boss was not kind to us, and the holidays boss kicked us when we were down, but I’m very proud of the team pulling through and putting a nice finish to another tier and another expansion. I’d like to thank everyone that has been with us over the course of the expansion and those officers that have helped us keep the guild running, kicking ass as taking names.
Finally I’d like to extend a massive thanks to glorious leader Bastosa! For those out of the loop, Bast is hanging up his raiding boots and joining the TRG Retirement Home. Ever since I joined TRG in early WotLK Bast has been a unifying force, always putting in the work and keeping our raids positive and productive. It won’t be the same without him but I will do my best to channel the spirit of Steven K. Bastosa and continue to improve the guild in Legion and beyond.
