23 Jun 2017 - Edgefest 2017: Prague!

Edgefest 2017: Prague



It's kind of hard to believe but after a fairly short period of planning time the Prague Meet Up came together and it finally happened. The anticipated bunch of 17 people eventually ended up being cut down to 14 proud Iron Edgers from all different "raiding generations" to come hang out and drink beer. I, as usual, have a few highlights of the event I want to share for those of you who weren't there:
  • Prague, being one of the very few European cities that hasn't been bombed last century, was absolutely beautiful.
  • I'm sure everyone was told just as much as I was before going there that you should take a look around and do some sightseeing, and I'm very glad we did.
  • Prague nightlife, however, was not a very big thing as I would have expected. Many terraces and regular pubs closed around midnight, which was an interesting experience in and of itself, considering many of us had never seen that before in a city of that size.
  • Speaking of "city of that size", the city center of Prague was relatively small and everything was within walking distance, which was fantastic.
  • The beers in Prague were about as cheap as we expected, at all the places we'd been to, half a litre of beer would cost you about 29 Czech Crowns
  • We finally got a chance to meet some of the more elusive members of IE such as Steve and Munjica, and as expected they were both wonderful to meet.
  • I'm going to have Vietnam flashbacks every time I smell the disgusting toilet-cleaner smelling Congo Cream again.
  • I've never shied away from hugging a fellow Iron Edger, but with the Scottish I might settle for a handshake from now on. Sorry Tutan!
  • Shiftey was a great tour guide, photographer and translator for medical staff.
  • Unfortunately we had a few people flake out at the last minute, but we got very fortunate that Munjica's sister and her boyfriend needed a place to stay. We were able to give them an entirely separate apartment unit for them to stay in.
  • Hugman survived the weekend without having a heart attack, at least I think.

Thanks to everyone for coming to yet another very special and successful EdgeFest. I'm already looking forward to whatever we decide to do in 2018. You can find all the pictures of the weekend in this post.

Thank you all and see you next year!
He was a good boy, he dindu nuffin



After invading her home and brutally slaughtering Elisande and her helpless allies, which included a harmless botanist and an innocent astronomer, for the crime of making a rational decision in an attempt to save what was left of their people, we decided to continue our murderous campaign by putting an old man with a troubled childhood and some questionable life-choices out of his misery. We did this because we were promised shiny items and creatures to drive on by a shifty mage because we needed to go to Sargeras' place to actually hold the people accountable that are responsible for this mess in the first place. Don't worry, it makes total sense, don't think about it.
Oh, and Illidan's helping us, too. Don't worry about that either. It's not like that fucking guy screwed over god-knows-how-many Night Elves, he's a good boy.

Once again Iron Edge has proven capable of killing a final boss on the hardest difficulty before the end of a content cycle, and just in time, too! Congratulations to everyone in the main raid, and especially to Fieryfero, Elfrighteous, Kensan, Romeo, Vejeta, Amstrup and Mortos. They may not have been there when we finally killed him, but they fought just as hard and will get their kill and Cutting Edge achievement soon.

Thanks Everyone! See you in Tomb of Sargeras and/or in Prague in less than two weeks. HYPE!



23 Apr 2017 - Meetup 2017!

Iron Edge Meetup 2017: Prague!

I’m very happy and proud to announce Iron Edge will be having its biggest meetup yet, and it’s not even in England! At least 20 people have signed up and are confirmed to be attending our Prague meetup over the weekend on the 16th, 17th and 18th of June. If you’ve been under a rock for the last two months, or if you were interested but not sure yet, you can still attend! All the information you might be looking for can be found here.



In World of Warcraft
Our raiding teams are still fighting their way through The Nighthold. Xormn’s Weekend Porkchop Warriors, Abyiss’ Mighty ToT raiders and of course the main raid are going strong with a variety of progress. Recruitment is also open for all raids, so check out our WoWprogress page if you know somebody interested in raiding with us.

We’ve also made a change to our officer team. The main raid has been going without an official healing leader since WoD, so I’m very happy to announce our new dedicated healing officer: Lethys!

I’m very much looking forward to seeing all those familiar and new faces at the meetup this year.
See you in Prague, HYPE!

06 Jan 2017 - Happy 2017!

Happy 2017!



I needed a couple of days to recover from the sustained 5-day IRL-cyberbullying I experienced in our Norway meet up before I could make a front page post wishing you all a happy new year. Despite all the naysayers complaining about how bad 2016 was, 2016 was a great year for Iron Edge, and I’d argue, World of Warcraft and gaming in general.

The Norway Meet Up
Even though we had already had a huge meet up this year in Manchester, somewhat spontaneously it was decided to have another meet up in Norway for new year’s. With the help of Stian (Glacio) we were able to book the master suite of a fancy 4-star hotel in downtown Stavanger, which turned out to be a great place to get wasted and do a whole bunch of sexually questionable shit with each other. I will once again attempt to keep Palmar’s tradition going by summing up these events to a few bullet points filled with dank memes and sneaky insults.
  • The week started off slowly with me, quietly sobbing on a Norwegian toilet near the Noodle Noodle, slowly coming to terms with the fact that Norway is still the most expensive place in the world and that this was going to leave us all financially devastated for months to come.
  • The hotel room lived up to most of its expectations, with the biggest lie being the “fast wifi” as advertised on the website. 3 mbps might be fast in the suburbs of Berlin but for a spoiled Dutch man it was quite the struggle.
  • Valkyrie’s cat is much better behaved than I thought he would be, turns out Bendie was just being an asshole to it and totally deserved to be clawed.
  • Front facing cameras on phones turn your phone’s screen white on maximum brightness as a flash, who would have thought?
  • “Turtleneck and Chains” were never gone, they just needed someone awesome enough to remind everyone how cool it looks.
  • Norwegians don’t fuck around with fireworks on New Year’s. We got up to a higher point in the city and enjoyed a professional fireworks show.
  • We asked our tour guide and tank Oxcit to take us to “the one where we could get up closest” so that’s exactly what we did. This was probably the last year you could get up as close as we did, because a Norwegian girl behind us got hit in the face by some of the professional fireworks. Hope she’s okay!
  • Our bear tank has magical, but useless eyes. He’s actually completely blind.
  • Lethys’ lips do not taste like a healthy, mutually consenting interaction. I’ll let your imaginations figure out what that means.
  • We never got to wish Bendie a happy new year, because he decided to make a very clever decision by leaving shortly before midnight. Valkyrie was not held responsible for the misunderstanding but did admit he done goofed.
  • Be careful with who you let Stian bring into your hotel room. Whether they be drunk middle-aged men, drunk younger men that look like Wildlings who destroy your toilet and cause noise complaints, or cute Polish girls who seduce you into taking very, very long walks with them.
  • One of the Polish girls took a special interest in everyone’s favorite German, but that interaction can be best summed up with this picture.
Overall I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we had a great time in Norway and I’m looking forward to planning our meet up in the summer of 2017. You can find the pictures of the meet up in this thread. Thank you all for coming out and I hope to see you all again soon!
World of Warcraft
Back on the WoW side of things I’m extremely proud to say that Iron Edge once again has three sustained raiding teams running simultaneously with varying degrees of casualness, thanks to the efforts of the brand new Too Old for This raiding team and the Weekend Porkchop Warriors. Legion has brought us a lot of new content and there is no indication that this is going to be slowing down any time soon, with The Nighthold opening up in just two weeks of my writing this. It looks like Helya was a little too difficult for us (and everyone else) to kill within the time, but since it doesn't have a "Cutting Edge achievement" attached to it, I guess it was never meant to be that way anyway. Next month will also be Iron Edge’s 12th birthday, so I’m looking forward to celebrating that with you all as well.

Anyway this post has been going on for way too long. Thank you all for a great 2016 and may we have an even greater 2017!

19 Aug 2016 - LEGION HYPE!



LEGION HYPE!
Normally I would start my rants about upcoming WoW features with "Call me a cynic, but..". But there is honestly not a whole lot to complain about this time around. *cough* random legendaries *cough*

I'm still recovering from the Gamescom reveal of patch 7.1 called Return to Karazhan, but much of the announcements and information that we have so far is giving Legion the impression of becoming the best expansion to World of Warcraft by a fucking landslide. Not only will we be guaranteed to have a whopping 18+10 raid encounters at the start, we will also be given another small raid that is supposed to be in between those two raid instances. Also, everyone that has had access to the Legion Beta knows that there will be plenty of shit to do as soon as the game launches.

I'd also like to take a moment to reflect on these quotes from Gamescom this week:
Quote
  • There was a period where the team focused on faster expansions, sacrificing things that they shouldn't have. This made the experience worse.
  • The team is never going to rush an expansion, they will be released when they are done.
  • Raid tiers should last around 4 to 5 months.
  • This time around there won't be a content drought - "Don't worry, we got you!"
Sauce
Am I in the fucking twilight zone right now? I already know this level of optimism is almost certainly going to leave me disappointed, so please control your shitposting. But fuck me, this is as promising as it's ever going to get.

This is also going to be the most exciting expansion launch for Iron Edge. We already know that at least 4 separate LAN-parties are going to be held (Scotland counts, too!). Let's hope our new Discord server can hold us all, but it's probably more convenient to go on TS when we have that many people :P.

I'm looking forward to celebrating this launch with you all. See you on the 29th!
