Christmas time means presents, and we at War Machine support this aspect of the holiday season wholeheartedly. As some of you may remember from last year, we’re doing our very own War Machine Secret Santa for 2013! Want to know more or sign up for it? Check out the Secret Santa page!
The competition is now closed – thanks everyone that entered! We’ll be doing the judging this weekend.
Notice for all!
It has come to our attention that despite managements best efforts, there is still some positivity within War Machine. As you know we’ve done some great work with the ‘No fun on progression night’ policy and the even more popular ‘Plan to fail’ seminars (thanks Chili). In spite of all this it seems there are still some pockets of resistance in the guild. This type of behaviour needs to be eradicated immediately.
To that end we’re running a competition.
We want your best demotivational poster. We at War Machine are dedicated to seeing our members lost and down trodden and to help with this cause we need as many demotivational messages out there as possible.
Posters will be judged on three main criteria:
There are a few rules however:
- Only in game screen shots will be accepted
- All posters must fit the standard format of a demotivational poster. If you need help making one, this handy generator might do the trick.
- Only one entry per person
- No inappropriate content including language
- Must be your own footage from in game (no grabbing from someone else’s work)
- All entries must be sent to both email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org
You can work together as a team if you choose (although teamwork is highly discouraged at War Machine we’ve found we can’t stamp it out completely) but it’s still only one entry per person.
If you would like to see an example of what a WOW demotivational poster might look like this:
- 1st Prize – 5,000 Gold
- 2nd Prize – 2,000 Gold
- 3rd Prize – 1,000 Gold
Good luck to you all.

Positively leading through negativity
It’s about time we ran a new guild event, so here it is, after months of planning, hours and hours of discussions, arguments and even a little begging, here it is!
Go read up on it and sign up today!
Here’s some video from the Running of the Bulls of suicidal Tauren. Warning: This may be the weirdest video you’ve seen in, oh, at least the last week.
War Machine presents “The Running of the Virtual Bulls!”. Unfortunately due to censorship issues and a none too polite email from our marketing team we are unable to divulge any of the activities for this event. Suffice to say fun times will be had by all (plus we don’t want to tell you because that’s how we get our fun!).
The event kicks off at 8:30pm ST on Saturday 3rd of March. Register your interest on the event in-game (one signup per player please).
After much planning, the first ever War Machine Amazing Race is only a few weeks away. Guild members should’ve received an invite in-game with more details – if you didn’t, this is what it said:
We at War Machine in conjuction with Legion of Light cordially invite you and one other to attend the AMAZING RACE! To be a part of this fun night simply complete the application form on the War Machine website ‘www.warmachineguild.net’ no later than Wednesday 2nd November 10PM server. The event will start approximately 8:30pm server time on Sunday 6th November 2011 and will last approximately 2-3 hours. Details will follow receipt of application.
To sign your team up, head to the application page.
As a sneak preview of what I’m working on at the moment, here’s the first leg of the Naked Gnome Madness run we did last week on Dreadmaul. More to come soon…
Shannox has fallen to the onslaught of the mighty War Machine! Last night we ran an impromptu 10 man with the intent of getting to Shannox as fast as possible and dropping him, and it certainly worked. Well done to all involved. Here’s the video – excuse the language at the end, Bannox was very enthusiastic.
Oh, and ignore me dying, and getting trapped. That didn’t actually happen, honest.
Well done all on the guild-first kill of Al’akir last night! Here’s footage of the event (with a bonus achievement!)
And to top of it off, we went and cleared Bastion of Twilight right after and got a video of our Cho’gall kill:
Hopefully I’ll have a Nefarian kill video to add to the list later tonight!
