"Gambit" was founded in April 2021 under the name "Journey" by old friends reconnecting to create an enjoyable raid team for competitive players to build a Cutting Edge team, free of toxicity and on a relaxed 2 day schedule. Everyone in the founding group had proven themselves in Cutting Edge raiding before and wanted to do so again!
In early 2022 we went through a transition in the leadership as we wanted to expand our focus towards building a community and not just running a raid team. The raiding goal remains the same, to accomplish Cutting Edge! But we also want a community where friends can play together, both in- and outside raids, and whether or not they are part of the raid team. A place where we can also play other games and have fun. We therefore opened the guild to socials, who want to be part of a small tight knit community of friends as well. With this expanded focus we decided to also rebrand the guild and renamed it to "Gambit" in late January 2022.
Having fun with friends is key to our community, and despite our high-end raiding goals, we have zero tolerance towards toxic behavior and misplaced egos. We all play the game for enjoyment and to achieve our goals together. We don’t obsess over meta and bench people for being the wrong class, but remain realistic about what is required to beat certain fights and will work with our team to adapt to the content that is thrown our way. That being said, performance obviously matters when pushing for Cutting Edge, and raiders are expected to always strive towards improving and being the best they can be, but we work hard on keeping the atmosphere positive, as having fun while raiding is the key to the longevity of the raid team.
To reach our goals in raiding we are always working to maintain a roster of like-minded players that know how to have fun, but also know how to dig in and grind when needed. People that know their class and play it to a high standard!

Thursday 20:00 - 23:00
Optional non-mythic raid on an off-night while HC farm is considered relevant. (Not mandatory)
We will have a break roughly halfway through the night.
We use loot council to ensure that upgrades are placed where they benefit the teams progression the most. Raiders always come before trials in loot distribution.
We always consider exceptional applicants for the raid team and ask that you fill out our application form on our discord in order to be considered: https://discord.gg/jgP3BVzG2d
If you’re only interested in joining as a social, then feel free to reach out to an officer in game for a chat, but note that we do not recruit raiders this way - we need a more organized approach to recruiting raiders which is why the application form is the only way into the raid team!
