<Bomb Squad> Giant Bomb community guild

#1 Edited by gakon (1952 posts) -

<Bomb Squad> is a Giant Bomb community guild, based on Ysera US, Horde side. The guild was founded by myself and eight other enterprising members of the community on July 21, 2010. However, since May 2011 the guild has been run by the fearless Azizzmuck (Thrawnkkar on Giant Bomb). You can find our official website at http://bombsquad.guildomatic.com/

@NarcolepticBat: Warcraft ain't in space brah.  ...Except when you're in Outland.  And then it's like space.

YYYAAAAAYYYY HORDE. I am joining so dont worry, you have some people lol. What should I be, I was thinking maybe a shaman. I might just move over my lvl 70 Undead Mage, or maybe I should just make a priest or a maybe a tank. SOOOOOO many choices, GOD I cant wait to get back in lol. 
 
No but seriously, what should I play?

#7 Posted by Beforet (2934 posts) -

I guess I'll join when I come back for cataclysm.

#8 Posted by Babble (1270 posts) -

I might roll a character, haven't decided if I'll keep my subscription, or take a break until Cata. 

#9 Posted by gakon (1952 posts) -

Thanks to all the bros who signed on and messed around for a bit.  We have six signatures and need four more for the guild to be official.  Soapy and I (Gorkus) will be on Ysera tomorrow at 8:00 PM Eastern to bring in new characters.

I haven't played WoW forever, I'm thinking about resubscribing just to do this.

Really?  Was that on a Bombcast or something?  I heard him say on the Cataclysm beta video that he would most likely be resubbing, but I've heard nothing about bringing back Space Neon Lobsters.
 
The guild charter isn't complete, though, so there's still time to change the name...
#13 Posted by immike (714 posts) -

Is it PVE or PVP?

#14 Posted by TheLawnWrangler (1657 posts) -

I will definitely have a character on this server JUST FOR THE SQUAD... but my main will be Kilrogg, with my friends :P

#15 Posted by Bam_D_Leprechaun (795 posts) -

you guys are REAAAAAAALLY trying to make me come back to the game (and roll on another server as well) stop it! 

#16 Posted by ClumsyRedRobot (10 posts) -

 I haven't played in a few years but was wanting to play some WoW before Cataclysm comes out, so I'd be glad to join. Not sure what class I'll play though.

#17 Posted by alConn (153 posts) -

Waitng til Cata...when that happens we shall see what's up.

#18 Posted by Soapy86 (2623 posts) -
@gakon5: Don't worry about it. You can always change the name later if it's absolutely necessary. 
#19 Posted by gakon (1952 posts) -
@immike: PVE.
 
We're on right now bros!  Send a tell to Gorkus or Soapy on Ysera US!
#20 Posted by ClumsyRedRobot (10 posts) -
@gakon5: Are you guys going to be playing tomorrow? I'm still downloading the client and I'll probably have to download patches after that.

Yeah, Soapy and I are trying to be on every evening.
#22 Posted by DoctorWelch (2765 posts) -

You should have made it a PvP server, oh well who cares.

This thread is bad and you should feel bad. And this is coming from a fellow WoW player.

Because the quote is Space Neon Lobsters... and that would totally be a better name than Bomb Squad! 
 
<Space Neon Lobsters>
 
...I'm busy with my own guild right now, it's a guild for 18+ only people, it's a cool place to get a Warrior leveled before the expansion comes out.
#25 Posted by Karn (690 posts) -

Should there be an alliance and horde side of the gb guild. Cuz....well....
 
Horde sucks.

#26 Posted by defaulttag (890 posts) -

hmm. i'm actually thinking of resubscribing. but i doubt i would since SC2 is coming out soon.

#27 Posted by DoctorWelch (2765 posts) -

I'll be playing tomorrow. My characters name is Darhius, he is a level 2 Blood Elf Priest.

#28 Edited by TomA (2531 posts) -

I really like the idea, i might even transfer my main onto the server. But Why can't a guild or group for giantbomb users ever be something that doesnt involve the word Bomb or Luchadeer. I mean jesus christ can't we have something a little more original.

What kind of guild are you building? Just a leveling guild now? Any particular classes in demand?

For now just a leveling and social guild, although I bet it would be fun to organize premades for Battlegrounds.  No classes in demand.  So far we have two tanks and a healer, but roll whatever you want to roll.
 
Also the guild is now officially up and running.  Every member has invite privileges, so just type "/who Bomb Squad" to find someone on.

Same but I'm just trying to figure out why you guys chose that server and created the guild when the expansion is not even released yet?
#32 Posted by Soapy86 (2623 posts) -
@ISuperGamerI: Because someone had to start one sometime. And also, you know, for fun.
#33 Posted by The_Dude (798 posts) -

Why are people complaining so much, I've never seen so much bickering from GB users. The guild is cool, and the people in it so far are bad ass, the dude commands you to COME FUCKING JOIN MAN!

#34 Posted by MetaMike (9 posts) -

I'll resubscribe and join you guys, it's just a question of whether I will play again before or after Cataclysm comes out. Cuz man, Cataclysm looks pretty sick.

@MetaMike:  The quick look brought me back!

True dat just make sure the guild is running until the expansion gets released.

Kilrogg for the win! (Kilrogg-US that is)
#38 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -
@gakon5: Just created a Warlock named Shaughtzer on the server. 
 
This is totally happening.

Does it matter what I class and race I am? I really want to be a Blood Elf hunter.

It don't matter.
#41 Posted by MB (13138 posts) -
@gakon5: Going to pin this to the Cataclysm board for now since it appears to be the only Giant Bomb clan around - if I'm wrong, someone please correct me and maybe we can get some kind of master topic going.

How many people are playing now? I'm getting bored of waiting for queues on my 80. 

#43 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -
@Hourai: The guild currently has 16 members. 
 
The highest level is in the 60's, but most people are in the 10 to 20 range. 
 
If I'm remembering right.
#44 Posted by RE_Player1 (7526 posts) -

You should make a list of the people in the guild at the front page. Like their Giantbomb name, WOW name, race, and class so we don't get overwhelmed with like hunters or something like that. Also it may encourage people to join if they see it on the first page and not having to cycle through all the posts. I'm going to be joining today, I just gotta buy a gamecard and remember my password lol. 

#45 Posted by Slurpelve (619 posts) -

i'll join

Good idea, although in turn I might ask people to put their Giant Bomb user name in their Public Note so I can figure that stuff out more easy.

@gakon5: Hey just a little correction for the table I'm a Hunter not a Priest. Thanks a lot in advance. 
#49 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

Since we seem to several people around the right level to do it, does anyone want to help a brother out with Ragefire Chasm? 
 
I don't even really need the loot, I just want to get some experience so as to shorten my stay in the Barrens as much as I can.

#50 Posted by RE_Player1 (7526 posts) -

C'mon guys we gotta update the table by sending gakon5 your name on wow, GB username, class, and race. Lets get this guild going.
