Rules Guild Rules - Sorry Points and Raid Composition
Back to Guild Rules
  1. Calendar signups

    • When signing for a raid, each player is given a number on the event calendar - the calendar roll. which is a random number between 0.000 and 1.000
    • The calendar roll is composed of the following components:
      1. A random number between 0.000 and 1.000
      2. plus any current Sorry Points (SP)
      3. plus a value between -0.5 and 0.25 depending on how active a raider the player is (see Activity)
      4. plus 0.1 if the player signed up before 120 minutes before the event start time.
    • Players of rank 'Test Member' or above are placed into the priority list of signups. All other players are placed in the Backup list of signups.
    • Players of rank 'Backup Raider' can spend 1 SP to move themselves from Backup signup list to Main signup list.
    • Where possible, raid spots are filled from the priority list of signups. Any remaining raid spots are then filled from the Backup list (or potentially any online member or guest) where appropriate and at the Raid Leader's discretion.
    • Raid spots are allocated by giving priority to the players with the highest value of their calendar roll, and to players raiding in their main role.
  2. Raid Composition

    • The general composition for a flexible raid of size N is:
      • 2 Tanks
      • N/5 Healers
      • Sufficient DPS to fill the remaining spots
      Note: Modifications can be made to this general rule for specific fights which may require more or fewer of a given role or finer constraints. Such restrictions will be announced on the forum.
      Note: Groups of size close to multiples of five are preferred to avoid healing problems due to the scaling of group size.
    • Raids should be composed from the highest rolling raiders within each role while respecting the above raid balance.
    • Flexible-sized raids should be composed to be as large as possible while respecting appropriate raid balance and ensuring sufficient players of each role.
    • Players not invited to join the raid are "rolled out".
    • The designated Raid Leader has a preference spot in the raid they are leading.
    • Raid spots that are vacated during the raid should be offered to any rolled out guild members in descending order of calendar roll before offering to others.
    • Meta-achievement runs: Meta-achievement runs are raids whose sole purpose is to complete a particular meta-achievement (e.g. Glory of the Something Raider). In these runs, SP are ignored and composition is adjusted on a boss-by-boss basis giving priority to those who are closest to completion of the meta-achievement.
  3. Sorry Points

    • Sorry Points are Easy's way of compensating players who were rolled out of raids and penalising those who don't show up. Sorry Points are added to the signup /roll to boost or lower the chances of getting into a raid.
    • SP are awarded and spent on a per-player basis. SP for Heroic raids are different from SP for Mythic raids.
    • SP are awarded and deducted at the following rates:
      • Player rolled out: 2 SP
      • Player signed for but did not attend the raid ("no-show"): -2 SP
      • Signing for a raid which was cancelled: 1 SP
        Note: This is not awarded if the player already has 2 or more SP.
      • Player late for raid invites: -1 SP
      • Player has SP<0 and rolled in: 1 SP
      • Player has 0 SP and rolled in: no change
    • Players with positive SP can spend 1 Sorry Point on a raid of their choosing to increase their calendar roll for that raid by 1.000. This is done by clicking the 'Add a Sorry Point' button on the event calendar. SP spent in this manner is not refundable, except in the event that the raid is cancelled.
    • Only players who signed up for the raid are eligible for SP.
    • Only players of rank Backup Raider or above are eligibile for SP.
      Players of rank 'Test Member' earn all of the stated SP.
      Players of rank 'Backup Raider' but below 'Test Member' earn 50% of the stated SP.
    • Players of rank 'Test Member' can have a maximum of 3 SP.
      Players of rank 'Backup Raider' but below 'Test Member' can have a maximum of 2 of the stated SP.
      Sorry Points will not be awarded to a player if they are already at this maximum value.
