re: About <Open Source>

0
This is the start of <Open Source>, where several players have banded together to create a more perfect guild.

When the founding members and I created this guild we set out with a goal of creating a community where many players could call home. This community was engineered to have Raiders, PvP'ers and Casual players all happily playing the game together. While we focus on raiding, we also give equal attention to our PvP and Casual player's ventures. The guild thrives because of our members, and therefore that is what the guild heavily invests in. A group of people can accomplish extraordinary things, we aim to do nothing less than that.



Have a problem or question and need to contact an Officer of our guild? Check out our roster by clicking here and feel free to contact anyone ingame (or private message on these forums) that you see with the guild rank of Rank 3 or higher (Officers). We value feedback of any kind.

Chapter 1 - Creation

02/28/2012
On February 28th 2012 the final decision was made to split from our guilds in order to achieve a goal as one group.

This is a list of founding members that wanted to work towards our goal:
    Setonas (GL)
    Arobi (Officer)
    Pavlov/Apollo (Officer)
    Baigel (Officer)
    Blasfamous/Reubin (Officer)
    Vinchenzo (Officer)
    Beerpong
    Mcdotterson
    Calistonia/Siyann

02/29/2012
On February 29th 2012 this guild was founded.

Open Source is a 25-man raiding Horde guild on the Bloodscalp (US) server.

Shortly after, we established this website as well as a dedicated Ventrilo server.

We wanted to create an atmosphere that promotes friendly attitudes while making the game an enjoyable experience for everyone.
With that as our foundation we founded the guild and started on our path towards progression in all content WoW has to offer.

03/01/2012
We are currently trying to build up the numbers in order to accomplish our goal of 25 man raiding but while we wait to do that we run 10 mans.

03/04/2012
We wanted to elaborate on the meaning of this guild's name.
In production and development, open source is a philosophy that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details.

Our guild was started with the goal of creating a community where a variety of players could come together and enjoy each other’s time. Traditionally guilds would be dedicated to only one portion of the end-game content World of Warcraft had to offer, here we combined PvP players and PvE players and casual players to start a community that could withstand the test of time and build long standing friendships.

03/05/2012
A General Member's Code of Conduct is born. This important charter can be found on our forums here (click). It is a document that every one of our guild members abide by as it promotes a healthy environment for everyone, even for players that aren't a member of this guild.

Also created was the Officer's Code of Conduct, located in our Member's only forum (click here).

Many big accomplishments today, setup social service sites (Facebook and Twitter) for the guild!

Chapter 2 - A Taste For Blood

03/06/2012
On this day, the guild cleared 8/8 Dragon Soul on normal mode in the 10-man environment. We understand that its not a big feat compared to the raiding world but its a clear indication of our guild starting to accomplish our goals.

Our 25-man endeavors have paid off! We were able to complete 8/8 Dragon Soul on normal mode in the 25-man environment. This is another indication that our guild is accomplishing the very goals we set out to achieve not too long ago. It could only be done by our guildie's commitment.
We will be pushing into heroic mode content now. Our goal before Mists of Pandaria is released is to make a good name for ourselves on our server. Hopefully our accomplishments, no matter how small some might see them as, show our true dedication and our internal happiness.

The Guild known as "After Hours" had a 10 man raiding group where half of them quit raiding and the other half wanted to find a good home to go to in order to continue raiding. Through discussion with Moopster, the guild leader of After Hours, we were able to accomidate them and setup a sunday/monday raid for 10 man heroic progression, which will consist of players already in our group as well as people from their group. We welcome each of the former After Hours members and look forward to having them in our community!

Chapter 3 - The Test Of Summer

06/07/2012
As of this day, we have discontinued our attempts at 25-Man Dragon Soul raiding. We will revisit that environment in the future but with interest levels in this game at a low point, with Diablo 3 hitting shelves, and with summer around the corner - a 25-Man Dragon Soul raid is not possible. Repeat, the 25-Man raiding will be revisited in the future as 25-Man raiding is our goal.

06/10/2012
Siyann has had a change of mind, and is no longer an officer in the guild. While she still helps where she can, her responsibilities IRL has caught up with her and she is unable to devote so much time to the game as is required from an officer.

06/19/2012
Plasmodium has proven to be a very effective and helpful leader. With his dedication to the guild and putting it's members ahead of himself, he has been promoted to the 2nd highest rank in guild: Director of Ops.

06/26/2012
As of this day, we now have two 10-Man Dragon Soul (Heroic) groups raiding at the same time on the same days week to week.

    Pavlov
    Plasmodium
    Ruuffy
    Setonas
    Squeeke
    Tagnbag
    Tartrazine
    Theabstract (available to fill in when needed)

Group 2 consists of:
    Fixed

    Siyann
    Healufast
    Saie
    Syanosa
    Dorkalicious

Open Source's second raiding group has been through some rough times over the past couple months - whether that be people joining the group and then not showing up and needing to be replaced or just learning a new encounter - but despite those challenges they succeeded with the goal of clearing Dragon Soul 8/8 on Heroic Mode before the expansion hit.
Over the time, these are the players that were in the group that added up to this progression:
Note: Those with an plus sign (+) were in the final group that killed Madness of Deathwing on Heroic.
Note: Those with an minus sign (-) were in the group leading up to the Madness kill but just couldnt show up for the day that the encounter was defeated.

While, as of 07/24/2012, the guild had completed 8/8 heroic mode DS it was only in the 10 man environment. With the success of our second group also clearing 8/8 heroic mode on 08/31/2012 we were ready to dive into 25 man content.

On 09/11/2012 Open Source combined their two 10 man raids and formed a 25 man raid (all guild).
The group was made up of the following players:
    Arobi
    Blasfamous
    Dawna
    Dorkalicious
    Ermac
    Hutchyo
    Kastrell
    Nualroy
    Orical
    Paeon
    Pandemonia
    Pavlov
    Plasmodium
    Saie
    Setonas
    Siyann
    Squeeke
    Suzaku
    Tagnbag
    Tartrazine
    Tewk
    Theabstract
    Theklap
    Trealkin

We wanted to complete the current content in the 25 man environment and did just that, all in one night!

Here is our screenshots from the night (the guild previously killed heroic morchok in 25-man months ago, so we didnt screenshot that one - plus its just morchok).

If you'd like to check out our entire history of Cataclysm kills, that we took screenshots of, please see our Photo Gallery section (folder name = Patch 4-5 Boss Kills Gallery).

Chapter 4 - The Fresh Start Of Twenty Twelve

09/25/2012
World of Warcraft's new expansion being released today is Mists of Pandaria, while it is not the first expansion we have seen and been a part of, it is the first expansion that we are starting off as a guild. This is a very important day for us because the table has been reset, everyone starts off from the same level and it is our perseverance that will separate our guild from everyone else.

Along our journey, we hope to meet and welcome more people that wish to be guild members, gain new friendships with other guild's and have a great time playing the game while conquering new content that is available in Mists of Pandaria.

We are not weak, we are not few, we do not stand alone, we are Open Source.

Pavlov was the Realm First Paladin to reach level 90, third on the server to do so!

Krazykiller was the Realm First Hunter to reach level 90, fourth on the server to do so!

Setonas was the Realm First Warrior to reach level 90, ninth on the server to do so!
