Upcoming Events for this week!!!!

In addition to our normal events schedule, Gary has organized a couple of special events during the next week (details below), and we will be hosting a AOTC carry-marathon on July 29th from 7pm – 10pm est. Check out our Discord for all the details!

First Event: Join us for a new monthly tmog competition. This month, MoD will host a ‘summer themed’ tmog contest. All submissions will be sent to me, Elide, via discord messaging.

Requirements: Your tmog must have a summer theme outfit. Must be wearing at least 5 pieces of tmogged gear.

The best summer themed tmog will receive 10k gold. Second place will receive a pack of 10 flasks and 20 battle pots of their choosing.

And finally, for the most mixed matched summer tmog, or what we call a summer themed Uro mog, they will receive a secret prize.

Submissions must be received by 7/27/20.Winners will be announced on July 31st!

Second Event: Join us on August 1 at 1pm (EST) for this year’s officer hunt! The officers of MoD will be hiding around the Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Outland, and Northrend (WM off). Level 100+ players can join in the festivities. All participants will be entered into a raffle where one lucky winner will walk away with a store mount of the their choosing! No one goes away empty handed though, all officers will have a treat to give guildies that participate as well. The officers will be around in discord during the hunt incase you have any questions. Join us for the fun!

10 Years of Ministry of Defense: A retrospective of thanks

Many of you know (or might not know if you haven’t been in trade chat recently) that Ministry of Defense is turning 10 years old this week in a game that is five more years its senior (WoW is 15 years old now).

I’ve been with the guild for eight years, and in a leadership position within the guild for the past seven or so years. The guild has prospered because of all of you and your help, dedication, and continued support. Without the help of our members, their input and attendance at guild events, we wouldn’t be in the excellent events programming position we are in today.

I first want to thank our current raid leaders (warlords) Quetzie, Zextol, Telann, and Peepo for their tireless efforts in making sure we field two raid teams and maintaining a busy four day a week raiding schedule. We would not be in the position that we are currently as a server top-tier raiding guild (and consistently number one horde guild) without them.

Next, I want to thank our PVP Leaders: Frostlich, Phill, and Hoss. Thank you for your efforts on putting guild PVP back on the map. Without your efforts directing three PVP activities a week, the alliance would have it easier existing on this server than they already do. 🙂

We also have a handful of officers that I would like to thank for their ability to back us up and help out when needed. Thank you to Jibbles, Harm, Grimm, and Wolframheart. I would be remiss if I didn’t particularly shout-out Bulborbish for his ongoing efforts organizing the guild’s Sunday Funday events.

Logging into WoW each day is a pleasure. It is something that I always look forward to at the end of my work day. Thank you all for making Ministry of Defense a welcoming, friendly, and fun place to be!
