    My mind is already made up but I love quality input from raiders. I think Alame is a little hungover today so maybe later?

    Being hung over & grumpy enhances my ability to maliciously review apps.

    My two issues are lack of Mythic experience and mediocre logs. Your performance in heroic is okay, but your performance in Mythic is really not up to par. You're also really inconsistent, there's no general upward trend in your performance week over week, it's all over the place. That kind of inconsistency is really not something we need in our raid.

    Also the font choice for your cast bar is ugly.

    We have taken people with less mythic experience and worse logs.

    Did we:
    1. Need their class for a specific reason
    2. Need to fill a hole from a player departing
    3. Need warm bodies to fill roster

    We've got a ~24 man roster right now. There's nothing in HFC that makes Shadow Priests specifically good, so accepting this app is either in hopes that he will outperform Chia (unlikely) or be happy riding pine.

    Sure, we can toss the guy a trial and see in a live-raid scenario. But we are 2 raid days away from starting Mythic progression. We're not going to have an easy or sheltered time to offer a solid trial - he won't be in for progression and pulling him in for Heroic clears slows us down and eats away at valuable raid time. It's also incredibly disrespectful to the applicant to offer a trial for the sake of it - not only are we burning 2/3 weeks of their time but they're also paying for server/faction transfers for nothing.

    There's nothing in the app that makes me believe that we can make this guy an immediate asset to our raid. That combined with the fact that the app is being put in right at the start of progression just makes it a bad idea for us to extend a trial.

    I agree, but if someone is willing to drop the cash and time to try to prove themselves i dont see why not as long as they understand what they are coming into. As someone on the bench for mythics and low on priority for gear in heroic runs

    Parses are low, but as you all know that is less important to me than living. And this guy fails both the H&F test and the Thogar test. Died to trains, delayed bombs, standing in void, many many times. With the size of our roster I don't really see a reason to add a low-dps high-death raider.
