Prologue; the origins
Well, what is Fuel Rats and what is Elite: Dangerous?
Elite Dangerous is a space-flight simulation game in which the player explores a realistic 1:1 scale open-world representation of the Milky Way galaxy (yes, literally 1:1 scale). Since the Milky Way is mind-bogglingly huge, it is not unusual for space explorers to get carried away and end up stranded somewhere in the void with no fuel. When this happens to you, your only way of getting back is if someone manages to find and reach you to transfer fuel.
This is where Fuel Rats come in. These are a group of volunteers who literally go above and beyond to help out their fellow players. There is no in-game system for this, mind you. So each and every member of this selfless organisation help out others through their own means. Their longest rescue mission consisted of five Fuel Rats members finding Commander “Deluvian”, a stranded pilot who is 65,788 lightyears from Sol. The combined journey took 600 (actual) hours.
It would be an understatement to say how devoted these players are just to help out someone else.
Our goal is to provide a similar helpful environment in WoW: Classic. With the help of some Goblin Rocket Fuel, anything is possible.
Our guild ideology
We have one goal; helping out any adventurers we come across. Some will come to us for help, but we should always be open to seeking out others who may be in need. Your level, equipment or the amount of wealth matters not. What matters is a healthy and friendly attitude. We do not have set roles for our members (PvE helper, PvP helper, crafter etc.) because we want you to be exemplary members of the Horde; no matter the activity. We only expect you to be kind to others, guild members and non-guildies alike.
As long as you wear the <Goblin Rocket Fuel Rats> guild tag, you should always remember that you are representing this guild with your actions. Treat others the way you’d want them to treat you; don’t ninja loot, don’t spam the chat, help out low level players in quests and dungeons, give them food and potions and buffs, and perhaps some 6-8 slotted bags etc.
Guild Events; it’s not just about helping but also having fun!
Helping out others is not the only reason for our existence; obviously we should be able to enjoy the game on our own as well! Our activities include;
- Dungeon runs
- World PvP / Battlegrounds
- Molten Core / Onyxia / ZG / AQ20 / BWL runs. AQ40/Naxx is not on our scope.
- Attunement/key runs
- “Fuel Runs” where we go out to the wild and help random players
Epilogue; closing thoughts
A little background on myself; I’ve played WoW almost religiously starting from final stages of Vanilla all throughout Wotlk and beginning of MoP. I did almost everything aside from AQ40/Naxx and PvP ranking. Much like many returning players, this time around I’m too old/busy to have a similar playstyle. Instead I just want to kick back with some friends, and enjoy mainly the social aspect of WoW. I will mostly be tanking on Gallow and offering free food/portals/enchant services on a mage alt.
The reason I wanted to start this guild is to provide a friendly environment. If I can make one person happy, that’s a good day for me. I’m also starting this guild on Arugal (PvP) server so with some luck I can take revenge on that level 55 gnome rogue who is harrassing those poor level 30’s.
