Hi! It’s been a while since our last update but User Friendly has been plowing stuff down! We rolled our way through normal Dragon Soul and got started on heroics tonight, with a kill on Morchok and Porkchop after a few pulls. Expect killshots soon of Slime boy and Commander Ping Pong!

RECRUITMENT: We’re always recruiting exceptional players, so if you think you’d be a good fit for User Friendly stop on by the forums and leave an application!

 

Team Lolcats took out Heroic Baleroc tonight in a hectic but fun fight. To quote a member of our team, Baleroc “made me want to stab myself in the face less than Alysrazor.” A special shoutout to our healers Mykolas and Guljit and their mad skills!

 

 

This week we’re gonna squash a giant spider and then it’s on to Heroic Ragnaros!

Lolcats – 3 Heroic Bosses Down!

Posted in Team Lolcats on August 23rd, 2011 by Kaylui

WE ARE RECRUITING! We’re looking for a Resto Druid or a Holy/Disc Priest, so if you think you’ll be a good fit for User Friendly, stop on by the forums and drop us an application!

 

Oh, hey dude! You won’t believe this! We totally killed 3 new Heroic bosses this week! Seriously! Check this out:

 

 

Some giant bird attacked us and there were boulders and fire and other birds and these weird dudes who I think were on fire and also tornadoes, but we killed her good!

 

 

We beat THIS guy too, we had to concentrate really hard but we got him!

 

 

We ALSO killed this guy on heroic!! Wait, what? What do you mean he’s not a boss in Firelands? There’s totally fire in that picture! Trust Me.

We started on Firelands heroics a few weeks ago and got some down! More to come soon!

Blackwing’s Bane

Posted in Team Lolcats on June 21st, 2011 by Kaylui

WE’RE RECRUITING! We’re looking for an exceptional Boomkin/Resto druid or Shadow Priest to join our ranks. If you think you’ll be a good fit, head over to the forums and leave an application! We’ll also consider a very impressive caster dps, so if you think you have what it takes, let us know!

 

With the new patch coming soon and Firelands along with it, we still had some business to settle in Blackwing Descent. With some new beefy additions to our roster, we stepped into Nefarian’s lair and crushed the mind controlling, lightning flashing, zombie making, lava loving OH MY GOD CINDERS casting SOB once and for all, getting a huge Murloc off our backs.

We now stand ready, better than ever for the Firelands, biped Ragnaros, and everything in between. Awesome Job, Lolcats!

 

 

 

Oh yeah, we threw this one in there just for fun. Elementary, my dear Stromm!

Lolcats – Heroic Omnotron, Conclave, and More!

Posted in Team Lolcats on May 6th, 2011 by Kaylui

UPDATE 6/13/11: WE ARE RECRUITING!

High demand: An exceptional ranged dps that has a good amount of heroic experience. If you’re a Boomkin that can play their resto offspec well or a shadow priest that isn’t afraid of healing once in a while, head over to the forums now and post an app!  Other very exceptional ranged dps such as a Hunter, Warlock, or Mage will also be considered.

If you’re a great player and think you’ll be a good fit for our team, we would love to hear from you!

 

Team Lolcats busted out two more heroic bosses, Omnotron and Conclave of Wind! These were both very challenging fights for very different reasons, but in the end we came together to get some good attempts in and took them down!

 

Cho’gall won’t know what hit him!

 

 

We also recently finished up the “That’s a lot of bait!” achievement, earning our guild the fish feast! We had a fishing competition on the final stretch with the participants getting gold, juggling torches, and all sorts of sweet stuff! Here’s the contest results:

Final Standings:
1st place – Larox
2nd place – Yyz
3rd place – Halie

Runners Up – In some particular order, but not really.
Almasylph
Stromm

Jindi also put together a sweet video commemorating this momentous occasion!

 

 

Nice job, everyone!

Lolcats – 3 More Bosses Down!

We’re looking to add an exceptional player to our team. If you’re an amazing DPS that can play your tanking or healing offspec well, we want to hear from you! Head over to our forums to read our requirements and post an app, and come talk to us in-game.

 

Lolcats recently took down three more heroic bosses, including killing the double dragons and Magmaw in the same night! Nice job everyone!

 

Most of our time recently has been spent on heroic Maimgor though, which you can activate by getting him up the elevator! We took a break from the endless struggle to get a group picture:

 

One day, Maimgor. One day.

 

Lolcats – Heroic Maloriak & Halfus Down

Posted in Team Lolcats on March 25th, 2011 by Kaylui

This week Lolcats destroyed two more heroic bosses, moving along at a great pace! More importantly though, we rediscovered the joys of Type-To-Speak.

 

Do you guys like helicopters?

Nice job everyone!

Nefarian Dead

Posted in Team Lolcats on March 4th, 2011 by Kaylui

WE ARE RECRUTING:

-A DPS Warrior or A Ret Pally: You need to be skilled in your offspec as well. Warrior offspec is prot, Paladin offspec is negotiable but expect to switch to prot if needed.

-A Warlock. Be prepared to switch around specs as needed for buffs.

If you are one of the above classes, please check our forums and read our requirements. If you think you’ll be a good fit, post an app! Afterward, contact Stromm, Halie, or Fudax in game to talk about joining us.

 

After three weeks of random lag, disconnects, and a team member vanishing into thin air, we finally stepped into Blackwing Descent to settle the score with Nefarian once and for all. It might sound weird, but the Nefarian encounter is a super nostalgic fight, and not just because we fought him a few expansions ago!

At the end of a ton of role playing games in the SNES through Playstation era, all of the end bosses would have an ability that would take you to one hitpoint or something very low. Nefarion is no different! The crackles are like that insane, towering boss using his ability to get you to one HP and during the next few seconds you would just pray that he wouldn’t immediately use the ability that hit everyone at the same time. Some people hate those moments in games, and I understand why, but those short bursts of panic and relief are some of the most exciting moments in gaming.

Remember when you were little and you were playing your favorite game while your friend watched you? You would get to the last boss with only one life left, all of your abilities drained, and the only thing you had on your side was the desire to not see that GAME OVER screen again. The fight with the boss starts in your favor, and just when you think you have it, disaster strikes and you’re brought down to just one hit. One more hit, and it’s all over. One more hit, and your whole afternoon is ruined and you’ve let your friend down. Your friend starts shouting at you, “Kill him! Kill him!” You stand up, staring at the TV, your hands shaking and without thinking you hold whatever breath you have left as you smash the attack button one last time. Win or lose, those moments are the reason playing games are worth it.

That’s what Nefarion felt like tonight. We were all pretty much dead when he was at a few percent of his life left as the remaining people that were alive threw everything they had into the dragon. Just as he swiped our last raid member down, he finally succumbed to everything we had thrown at him.  It was close, but the cleanest kills are very rarely the ones that are the most memorable!

 

Let’s do this, hard modes!
