I'm a daily reader but actually haven't posted on the forum before. I wanted to share with you a new website that - I hope - will help you in finding groups for raids. This was thought of by my guildies, and I've implemented it. Think of it as a giant guild alliance or a LFR with better gear chances.
For smaller guilds, it’s a pain to find raiders, mostly due to low guild level and such. While you may have a few great raiders, you can’t easily get 10, let alone 25 players. You want to get people that fit in your group. But nowadays, with a lot of small guilds, that’s a difficult and time consuming process. So this is why we made OpenRaid. To enable you once more to do the raids you want, and the achievements you want.
LFR tends to get boring and hasn’t got the gear edge DS10/25 does. You also can't really do the achievements you may want to do, or perhaps even oldschool raids. But now you can do this cross-realm, too! Aside from that, spamming trade for pugs doesn’t always cut it. It can take hours to set up, especially harder achievements, and it often fails or isn’t the atmosphere you seek.
www.OpenRaid.eu and www.OpenRaid.us are in beta testing phase right now, so it may contain a bug here and there. Give it a try! It’s free, and will be forever. It's also not ad supported. Please let me know if you do find any bugs, and we’ll fix them asap. Give it a shot!
You'll only see raids that you can attend (based on ilvl from Battlenet and other factors). You can leave feedback after raids which gives people reputation with OpenRaid. Using rep you can know what to expect from a certain player.
