-NiM TFB progression- PSA
« on: Jun 19, 2013, 01:32 AM »
I posted this on the official forums as well, but thought it would be wise to repost here:

Hello to all the progression focused ops teams on JC! Thank you for taking a few minutes to check in and hear what we have to say.

I am Gash, PvE/Operation officer for Lethal Dose Fifty, and have been heading up our progression efforts. We have received many inquiries regarding our progression with the recently released Nightmare mode TFB, and I'd like to take a moment to address the community directly, so there is no confusion about where I, and as an extension, the LD50 ops team stands.

I think by now it is obvious the main issue is dealing with the Heirad, Ciphas and Kel'sara encounter, and how it relates to what we consider proper progression. Let me be clear on this. Under no circumstance will we bypass this encounter by dropping the instance to hard mode.

In our view this is an unintended method of bypassing the encounter and would invalidate any claim we could make toward legitimate progression this tier. Additionally it would be disrespectful to those guilds/individuals who have put in the amount of time needed to kill this without the advantage of gear obtained from Op IX, Kephess and TFB.

LD50 loves competition, both in pvp and pve and have since launch. We have put a lot of effort into being the best we can be. This however will not come at the cost of our integrity, which I fear would be in jeopardy were we to take advantage of aforementioned HM/NiM lockout mechanic.

While I do not condone doing this, I do not harbor any ill will to the guilds who have chosen to take the path of least resistance in their efforts to obtain the rewards this operation has to offer. However, I would like to invite any guild that has not yet done so to consider their actions carefully, put some thought into the decision and join our effort to keep PvE progression as equitable as possible for everyone who is willing to put in the effort.

I hope that this has cleared up some of the confusion around what has been going on, and what our intentions are going forward. If you have any further questions for LD50 in regards to our PvE efforts, please direct them to me personally in game. I have instructed my guys/gals not to discuss specifics with non-guild members, and to refer any further questions to me.

I want to make sure that's not missed in any TL;DR.

Gash is official point man for any questions about our progress. Please redirect any questions, including but not limited to strategy or our best attempt health %, to Gash rather than answering.

In today's game, speed is no longer an advantage, it's the price of entry.
Everyone is fast but only few can change the game in an instant.
Only few can play at full speed while remaining in total control.
Only few can strike fear into an opponent before the whistle blows.
