• The trade channel.... is it our ugly side?

    So it's our only real universal chat channel, at least universal as far as our server and faction goes. And the misnamed 'trade channel' seems to either function as visual white noise, become a source of amusement or constant aggression, or in very rare cases actually get used for some kind of advertising. Some of us use it to show off how incredibly clever we think we are (usually by insulting someone) or to spam some sort of meaningless information that--at least as far as I can see--has nothing to do with trade.

  • Paragon Age: Origins (Manaflask article)

     Manaflask did an interview on us some time ago, and they started with publishing and article that contains some background information about us. We'd like to thank Manaflask and Starym for the article, we think the the questions were spot on; very interesting and something we don't get asked in every interview.

  • Paragon in media

    We have gotten some interview requests lately, and Paragon has been featured in different medias. BBC was not the only one to mention us when talking about playing World of Warcraft and raiding, for instance also Kruf and Lazei have been interviewed.


    I'll collect all the links of our inteviews and articles that feature us here as I find them.


    New interviews:

  • BBC article and radio show about raiding

    Earlier today the BBC posted an article about raiding, particularly in relation to hard core or elite raiding and I was interviewed for this article for my “thoughts” about raiding and what my research is telling me. They also spoke to Paragon to get the added perspective from an elite raiding guild (nice job, Xaar!). Here is the article, if you are interested:

  • My first blog entry - hello world

    So. I've been thinking about starting to blog for a while already. People say my news posts are sometimes too dramatic and I don't always represent the opinions or views of the entire guild when I answer questions as a Paragon member. Now I'm happy, because with this new site, I'll be able to write about things under my own name. I can also exaggerate and be dramatic in peace - I guess I'm that kind of person after all.
