Announcing GuildOx Custom Raid Groups1 years ago
GuildOx is pleased to announce a new service, Custom Raid Groups. Specifically designed for guilds with multiple raid groups, raid leaders can nominate their members and then each raid group’s progress will be ranked and displayed in a private ranking table and widget. Members can be from any guild and any server. The raid groups are automatically crawled and updated by GuildOx so you will always know how each of your guild groups are progressing.

“We wanted to do something special for all of those raiders that raid in a sub-group within their guild but were not part of their main raiding team.” said Polar of GuildOx. “These players missed out on seeing how their raid group was progressing with respect to other raid groups in their own guild. We developed a special system for tracking custom groups and have been testing it for several months now. The response from our test group has been overwhelming.”

Last year GuildOx performed a survey of over two thousand raiders and asked them many raiding questions including how many raid groups they had in their guild. The results showed that 66% of guilds had two or more active raid groups within their guild. Raid progress sites only rank the main raiding group so any other raid groups are subsequently forgotten.

Racknor at the Thorns of Gold on Proudmoore has been testing the new service. "We have been using GuildOx's new custom raid group feature and we love it." said Racknor. "We are a large gaming community and run over ten custom raid groups across several realms. It was exciting to see the up-to-date progress of all of our groups in one place. The new Custom Raid Group system is fully automated and has saved us hours of effort generating progress tables by hand."

How to set it up?

1. Log in to GuildOx and then click on “Options”
2. Locate the custom raid group section
3. Enter the raid group names, faction and list of raid group members for each custom group
4. Click the link to go to the raid group page and hit “update” to kick off an update request
5. Wait a few minutes and the progress for the raid group will be crawled and then shown as follows -

GuildOx Updates Brawler's Guild Ranks for Patch 5.31 years ago
We have updated our Brawler's Guild ranking to be ready for the new ranks 9 & 10 to be introduced with the upcoming 5.3 patch. According to our world event popular achievement stats, only 19.2% of players have managed to get into the Brawler's Guild to date. Patch 5.3 also brings easier access to Brawler's Guild passes so it is a great time to get into brawling.

Mogu Runes of Fate Weekly Now Requires 50 Lesser Charms1 years ago
Today's hotfix changed the Mogu Runes of Fate weekly to require only 50 Lesser Charms:

Blizzard Live Developer Q&A April 251 years ago
Join the development team at Blizzard for a live Q&A session on April 25:

Good people of Azeroth, lend me your eyes!

We’ll be hosting a live World of Warcraft developer Q&A open to the community on Thursday, April 25 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. PDT. Designers Dave Kosak, Ion Hazzikostas, Brian Holinka, Cory Stockton, and Greg Street will be available to field your questions about Mists of Pandaria gameplay and design, patch 5.2 and beyond. This will be a moderated chat on the Cover it Live platform hosted on the front page of our official site. Community managers Bashiok, Crithto, Daxxarri, Rygarius, and I will be there to filter your submissions for the developers.

We receive thousands of questions each time we host these events, so please be patient with us and bear in mind that we won’t get to every question. You can help by keeping your inquiries concise and focused on one topic per entry. Submissions that are well over 200 characters, or contain multiple questions on an array of topics, are much less likely to receive responses. We want to cover as much ground as possible and appreciate your assistance in helping us to achieve that.

We look forward to chatting with you on Thursday!
