Combining skill and maturity to achieve nearly-hardcore goals on a casual schedule.
August 3rd, 2015
Our inaugural Fika Night mobilized a large group of Initiates and Old-Timers for an assault on the Eternity Vault, and on ignorance itself! The icebreaker for the night asked players to reveal to the group one interesting factoid about themselves ... anytime their player needed to respawn. For any reason.
Plus, half the raid group had never been to EV before on any difficulty setting. So there was a lot of learning. We learned fight mechanics. We also learned about spouses, children, "how we met" stories, and learned that a bunch of people in our guild serve their country in the military. And everyone who didn't already know, also learned that one of us likes to talk a lot. All in all, it was a great night.
Next time: Speeders!
