    Thanks for the interview, they seem to have been preparing for this for a long time!

    Big props to them, but benching an enhancement shaman just because his pets don't attack the right target isn't cool. They do mediocre DPS at best. Eh, seems stupid to me. But, good job anyways.

    Lol? The dps required for kills is very high, even 100 dps can be a difference between a kill and a wipe, besides timing is very important too, if a tendon would have been down 1 sec later Im sure they could have wiped just because of that.
    Please remember that these people killed Heroic bosses very early with very "low" gear, they really needed to bench the worse and play with the best to be able to kill it.

    Good read

    I would love if at one point, someone winning something hard.. In any game/sport/competetion. Is given an interview, where the question comes: "Any advice for others trying to achiev the same as you have achieved?" - "Yes, 1 thing. This is crucial.. I tell my kids this every day.. The 1 thing you absolutely have to do, to make it in this world. Is... To be BATMAN!!! NaNAnanNAananaNANnana BATMAN!" - And then he tugs his cape over his torso, right beneath the eyes. Gives an evil glanse. Hisses. And lift his left arm and run away, asif flying. Yes, I said flying. The reporter then does the same.

    Q: Is there a reason why you did that?
    A: Every patch, we as a guild, had problems with limited roster. However, we feel that composition is far more important than the number of raiders. Say we have 25 people online. If those 25 people have access to most of the classes, creating a fitting raid composition becomes very easy.

    For DS, each member had 2-4 classes ready for progression.
    And that, people, is why KIN won over other guilds that go by number of members instead of number of classes a member plays.

    THEY WERE NO--Wait wut. I guess they were prepared...

    Although the GM in the picture... is suspicious.
    There are no bathrooms, only Zuul.

    I'm a little surprised, actually, that they benched prot pallies for Madness. We were theorising that prot pallies would be a great choice for the fight because of their ability to AD Impale.

    It's possible they really valued the DK and Druid tier sets more that can give +healing. Druid can give it for a major damage phase and DKs can give a smaller one, but more often, for things like post-Elementium Bolts.

    Suspicious? I'd say it's telling - if he was around enough to be involved and actually pose for the picture, it had to be legit.

    Anyways, they sound like nice folks. It's great to have more blood at the top of the charts. Makes the races much more interesting, you know? It'd be like if the other football teams never had a chance, while 2 teams are always winning. Much more interesting with a variety of guilds.
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?

    Paragon used 500 attempts on Ragnaros yes. But don't compare those 500 attempts to KINs 300+100 attempts, Paragon are still on Spine several days after KINs kill. They may already be well above 500 attempts for Spine alone. I agree that it's a bit odd that Madness seems easier than Spine but I don't think the combined Deathwing fight is easier than Rags was.

    On topic - Thanks for the translation, was indeed a good read.

    HOW CAN PEOPLE BE SAYING ITS SUSPICIOUS! He is there to monitor the kill, just like ANY other guild was with Sinestra, Cho'gal, Rag, ect. To make sure no bugs are exploited and to make hot fixes ON THE SPOT if things arnt supposed to happen, to ensure it's a LEGIT kill. Get. Over. It.

    The Enhance and Hunters being benched because their pets couldn't attack the tendons is a pretty big deal in a hard out DPS check fight. Where was the hot fix for that?

    True that madness is the final encounter and separate from spine, but consider that they ARE both Deathwing and technically they are both part of the final boss of the expansion
