First off let me give a description of our community. Bench Squad is a small hardcore community of experienced players that have been together in one form or another since World of Warcraft's release years ago. Our outlook on raiding is simple, sit down in front of your computer 2 days a week, 4-5 hours a night and dedicate that time to playing at your best. Performing at your peak results in fast efficient progression and an enjoyable experience for you and your fellow raiders.

Note: Due to our current level of progression and performance we are looking for a player that is at or beyond our level of progression. Please contact Burgerdos or myself in game for an in depth interview before or after you submit an application. We want to make sure that you will enjoy our community before you attend a trial. It is also very important to be prepared we will ask to see logs before making any decision.

What we look for in a player:

Prospective members should be searching for a place to play long-term. The more a player works with their team, the better they become as an individual and as an asset to the raid. Cohesion is essential to a raid's success. Bench Squad is a 10 man hardmode progression team and with that being said we require our team members to be top notch in order to maintain steady progression that being said here is what we look for in our members.

Selfless play. Progression raiding is not an environment where one individual may disregard proper targeting and expect to complete the encounter.

Excellent execution. Major factors we look for in a player are: proper positioning, damage allocation, communication, minimizing damage taken, and strategy understanding.

Follows directions. There is no time to second-guess the raid leader. Being attentive and learning quickly make all the difference.

Maximizing your performance

Utilize the many tools provided for your specific class be it forums, mods or sims.

Double potting every pull be it progression or farm content, we are not one to waste time we like to clear content in one night if possible to leave us more time to enjoy other things in or outside of the game.

Min/Maxing your character, making sure you are properly gemmed/enchanted/forged at all times.

The loot System

Loot will distributed using Suicide Kings so that it is random and evenly distributed. On that note we do use a demerit system that punishes tardiness or blatant mistakes while raiding, these demerits lead to a lower standing in the suicide kings loot distribution table. We do this to promote performance from our raiders.

Raider Requirements

Max level professions - we require our raiders to have two max level professions, the professions are your choice but it does help to have at least one profession with pve perks.

Competitive game play - Bench Squad is looking for players that will to push their game play to the limit. Bench squads existing raiders are exceptional and we expect a high level of performance from any member of the team. If you are applying we expect performance on par with our own. If you plan to apply for a core position you are required to submit at least one WoL, no exception.

Communications skills - During a fight mumble is a tool for success not a tool for trolling. Communication is key and the effective use of mumble is required.

Community - Bench Squad is a community of players that enjoy playing the game as a team, be a part of that team.
