    Default Short Compilation of Raid Bloopers

    I suppose this could have gone in "Rift Creations" board, but it felt like a fit here as well. No need for flaming, just a good time.

    A short and the first (of what my guildmate calls many) video of our raid bloopers.

    Happy Tuesday, from Silhouette@Greybriar!

    Btw- we'd love to see other guilds do something like this purely for the laughs.

    Raiding isn't all srs business. But when it is, it's usually when you wipe a lot.

    Please remember to pizza more than you french fry. ;)

    The crucia bridge has always been a reliable source of jokes for raids. I do believe she got Belzaa'd.

    Lol I think that was one of our first times in there. I can see how that'd be a good.. uh.. joke pool.. if you will. *g* We've started recording everything just for the sake of catching something hilarious now rather than for progression or guides. I'd love to see what other people do just for the sake of laughs.

    There's rumor of me tanking twins at all 4 pillars due to disorientation, but pics or it didn't happen. :P

    Just about every Regulos tank has been on the receiving end of this at some point. ****ing mages lol.

    You know what the best thing about 2.7 is going to be? A Mage tank could be squirreled by a Fallen Warlock spawned from their own death. It will be glorious.

    If we had our internally notorious bloopers recorded you'd see some disgruntled ex member or another slinging them all over the forums. I can only recall my most epic bloopers since they're popular to bring up within the guild due to my caring nature and past mild mannered raid leading style. There are a few that are immortalized on our quotes page otherwise.

    1
    Scene: River of Souls, Alsbeth
    Context: I'm unhappy with performance and general assgrabbery, the usual.
    Set Up: I say to the raid just before pull. "Well, I'm the only warrior so at least no one should get cleaved."
    Punch Line: The tanks initiate, I bull rush, but she doesn't turn to face the tanks until after the first cleave. I see it coming as I slow motion levitate toward her nothing at all like a bull. She gibs me. I don't find it the least bit humorous; I am the only one. I hate everything.

    2
    Scene: Hammerknell Fortress, Akylios
    Context: I'm not smiling, Typical bleeding edge HK progression raid. Read: not all unicorn horns and rainbow sprinkles as people tend to "remember" through their rose colored glasses.
    Set Up: On raids I call out some things that don't need to be called out just to keep people engaged and make it less likely someone will herp derp something easy and murder morale. It's akin to how sports coaches have their little coach-isms that in any other context would be idiotic sounding but somehow fit perfectly into the situation at hand. One of these for me on Akylios was calling for people to jump when transitioning from the dock to the first platform by simply saying "jump". P.S. Trust me when I say that from a psychological standpoint there is sound reasoning for that sort of practice regardless of how superfluous it might seem. Also, shut up.
    Punch Line: I don't simply miss the jump but I faceplant it. No cat on keyboard, no lag, no "oh sh*t I spilled a coke on my keyboard", only pooch screwing.

    The other thing that immediately comes to mind is when Ayona super snipered me like we were in some kind of Stephen Hunter novel with the first set of waves on Abom platform and the raid had to kill Abom with 18. I think that was our third kill so, well before people figured out how to roll face it. The point is, her fault.

    There's a bunch of other hilarious type stuff that went on including open world PvP early in the game but I can't post most of it without editing for language which would render it pointless.

    At least half of what Dartless says could be considered a blooper.

    I was thinking about you when I typed the bit about spilling coke on the keyboard.
