<StratsCo> (Horde, Area 52) — The grownup gamer guild of yesteryear is back!

Horde, Area 52, US

We’re friendly people, and we like to play Blizzard games—usually together. We value friendship, kindness, open-mindedness, generosity, and bourbon. And World of Warcraft. Not necessarily in that order.

  • Mythic+
  • Raiding
  • PVP with @Auth’s OCD shenanigans
  • Crafting, leveling, rabble-rousing
  • Casual Discord banter with adult beverages

If you want to have fun while not messing up other people’s fun, you’ll probably fit right in. You can read all about us and introduce yourself on at forum.strats.co.

How to join the party

  • Search for Strats on Area 52’s guild finder and mash Apply
  • Mix yourself an Old Fashioned, sip as needed
  • Hit up @wow on Discord for an invite and someone will grab you

Why don’t you stay a spell?

  • Add https://discord.gg/WpYhTf8

  • Set your game roles in the #welcome channel on Discord. We use them to quickly put together groups for dungeons, raids, Mythic+, or simply for socializing.

  • Check #giveaways for Blizzard Balance cards.

  • Chat Blizzard in #blizznerds

Kind regards,
Team Strats


A little more about us

Strats members—or strategists—have fun playing video games while not messing up other people’s fun. If you’re cool with that, you’ll probably fit right in.

We started in 2014 and we’ve been hanging around together ever since. Over the years our mission has evolved from the early guild days but we’ve always remained a haven for adults who love gaming in an environment that doesn’t involve your mom being called names.

Your ideas make it great

This guild is yours and we want to make it what you want. If you have an idea, suggestion, or change you would like to see implemented, throw up a thread. Vote for the stuff you want us to prioritize.

Strats is a labor of love and those of us working on supporting it directly appreciate your input and feedback.

Easy rules

Our number one rule is "Be excellent to each other!"

Please treat our forum and Discord with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource—a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation. These are not hard and fast rules, merely aids to the human judgment of our community. Use these guidelines to keep this a clean, well-lighted place for civilized gaming discourse.

Please avoid…

  • Name-calling.
  • Ad hominem attacks.
  • Responding to a message’s tone instead of its actual content.
  • Knee-jerk contradiction.

Thanks!
