we're the guild Rapid Eye Movement from Stormscale-EU Horde side and we're currently looking for players to improve our roster, especially with the upcoming patch 5.2 in mind. For this we are considering applications for every class and spec.
We are currently in a very unique position as a guild. Stormscale may be known to many as the PvP-Mecca of Europe and has a very high population as a result of that, with many widely known personalities playing on it. On the other hand PvE is barely receiving any attention at all right now, a situation that has become even more acute since numerous strong guilds disbanded during 5.0 progression.
In contrast to that our guild was founded only very recently with the launch of MoP and has climbed the wowprogress ladder rapidly ever since. You can visit our wowprogress page here: http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/eu/stormscale/Rapid+Eye+Movement
and see for yourself.
Being the clear leader in the PvE ladder on such a densely populated server has naturally put us in a position where we are getting swarmed with applications, especially considering that our worldranking isn't even that high yet. In an attempt to seize this perfect opportunity we are now trying to transform from 10man to 25man raiding, a venture that already seems promising after just a few raids.
So this is where we are now. As already stated, we are recruiting every class and spec. However unlike what some might suspect, this isn't because we are desperately lacking players. Primarily it's because since the day we made this guild we have been following the policy of always looking for ways to improve the roster. Even if we already have 5 hunters, we will take a 6th. And if we can't fit them all into the raid, those who have been consistently performing worse will have to sit out. This rule also has to be respected by officers.
Some may think that this cutthroat competition could turn players into jerks, but we've been observing quite the reverse. Without dead weights being a permanent handicap on the raid, the more able players are less likely to get frustrated. And with a constantly improving raid, the game is simply more satisfying.
And of course, social skills are an important part of the package that will be judged when we decide who we want to play with. We have already dropped 4 competent players from the guild over the last 4 months, for no better reason than that they couldn't work in a team.

We raid 5 days a week from 8-12pm Central European Time (Servertime). No raid on Friday and Monday.
And if I may add: I have been raiding amongst the world top 50 myself during Ulduar and I have high hopes for the future of this guild. It may require some patience, but this guild definitely still has its best days ahead of it.
If anybody has questions before writing an application, this is my battletag: Friedman#2125
