Since its founding at the release of the Burning Crusade, <Crucifixion> has been a force to reckon with on the raiding scene. While the roster has changed over time, the tradition and core values remain the same. Our standards of excellence and desire to be the best are unwavering.
Currently, <Crucifixion> is beginning its next chapter in World of Warcraft: originally a top Horde guild on US-Arthas, we now seek to make a mark on the raiding scene, after a couple of years away, with our Alliance brothers. Our dedicated officers are always looking for new ways to improve the guild and take <Crucifixion> to the next level. Every guild member loves the game and seeks competitive, up-to-date class knowledge. One key to success is building a friendly, enjoyable atmosphere, so that our turnover rate is exceptionally low. We have developed into a tight-knit community of likeminded players, with one focus: to do whatever it takes to be the best, as a guild.
<Crucifixion> has a lot to offer to potential members; the first thing being leadership. Our guild is run by motivated, dedicated players who go above and beyond for every member, providing the structure and stability that allows raiding to be fun, smooth, and efficient. The second advantage is player development. We dedicate time to each applicant, and to our recruitment process. We build our core with knowledgeable players who seek to not only improve themselves, but those around them - and wish to add likeminded, respectful people with potential, who can hold their own in a challenging environment. Thirdly, an active community. Meshing well with our guild is a must, as that chemistry is invaluable during progression. The friendships you develop here will add to your World of Warcraft raiding experience. <Crucifixion> is a place you can call home.
Guild Master Hecktor
<Crucifixion> came about from the idea that, if you want to experience it, you must work your ass off to obtain it. Hecktor, not being satisfied with the raid scene during the Burning Crusade, decided to form a guild of his own. He prided himself on perfection, and on expecting the very same from every one of his members. Hecktor created <Crucifixion> from nothing, and made it into one of the top raiding guilds on US-Arthas, from the Burning Crusade into Cataclysm.
Hecktor has always been the person to go to when something had to get done. Being the main tank for <Crucifixion> since its inception, he has always been reliable. Some of Hecktor's favorite moments have been with his guild mates, downing Lady Vashj, Kael'thas Sunstrider, Illidan Stormrage, Yogg-Saron, the Lich King, and Nefarian. The culmination of time and effort to that moment when everything clicks and you down that boss - there is no other feeling like it. That is why we keep coming back, time and again!
What type of Guild Master should you expect Hecktor to be? He is someone who will lead, but will also listen. He will give you everything he has, but will expect the same from you. Hecktor respects every single one of his members, whether they were invited recently to long-timers. He is comfortable making that hard decision, and will also explain why at the same time. If you are looking for a Guild Master who is committed to what is right and fair, then you have come to the right place.
<Crucifixion> means everything to Hecktor. He has gone through everything with this guild, and has decided to raise the banner once again, to start the next chapter for <Crucifixion>. Words of advice from Hecktor: "If you want something, you're the only one who can stop yourself. Work hard, respect others, and good will always find its way to you."
Ploxages was totally not born with a mouse in hand. Falling blindly in line with the villainization of video games in his wee youth (or "computer games" as he called them, in order to feel less guilty when snagging fruit from atop 2D platforms), he gingerly boarded the World of Warcraft bandwagon a month before the release of Burning Crusade... and wondered why it hadn't rolled past his stop sooner! Not only did the ice cream truck now pale in comparison, but - the teachers had been plain ol' wrong about gaming.
Ploxages found himself helplessly immersed in the moods and intrigues of Durotar: here was an artform that combined several disciplines (visuals, music, writing) with strategy, to create an interactive setting and story - next best thing, after a holodeck! WoW was also the gateway to other MMOs: SW:TOR, ESO, FFXIV and GW2 have all occupied special chambers in his addict heart.
But, without knowing one's enemy, he would indeed only live half the experience. At the drop of Warlords, Ploxages followed his guildmates through the big red portal, and traded fine tusks for an even pointier set of ears. Hey, weirder stuff has happened when navigating the twisting nether.
As quoted by the “Three Wise Men” in Adventure Time, “the mark of a great hero is his flaw.” And so Failtânic's flaws have been vast and many. Failtânic started his journey as a blood elf Death Knight, and valiantly overcame numerous challenges throughout Wrath of the Lich King. All in all, Failtânic overcame all the feats put in front of him, regardless of whatever struggles were presented to him. Through his determination, ability to handle constructive criticism, and his near endless obsession with trying to be the best Death Knight out there, his merit landed him a place of respect and honor amongst the guild.
Behind the character lies a funny, caring, charismatic individual who loves to interact with other people. This individual finds enjoyment in, not only clearing incredibly difficult content and achievements, but in clearing everything with his fellow friends and guildmates around him. Never missing the opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face, this individual strives to make the point amongst the guild that, through teamwork and determination, no challenge is impassable. No enemy is unbeatable.
The individual behind Failtânic's persona has been a hardcore raider ever since the release of World of Warcraft. He has raided in every single raid, and has played every single class (except for paladins and warriors), earning the skill and knowledge it takes to become adaptable in any given situation. Despite all of Failtânic's failures and struggles, he is a shining example that no feat is impossible.
World of Warcraft, a game that brings together three of Grimhilt's favorite things: strategy, storyline and competition. What got him hooked on gaming? Well, he would have to tip his hat to some great games: Crono Trigger, Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 8, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Super Mario RPG, to name a few. There are so many games, it’s hard for him to pick a top 5. Final Fantasy XI is the game that introduced Grimhilt to the MMO world. Friends from there introduced him to World of Warcraft, and the rest is history.
What Grimhilt truly loves about MMO’s are the experiences that they give you. He has many great memories of laughing, arguing, and competing with friends, as they progressed through the content together. The feeling of accomplishing something epic with a group of friends cannot be duplicated in any other gaming environment.
Grimhilt looks forward to experiencing all of the content WoW has to offer, with new and old members, and he hopes that we can continue to make some amazing memories.
