TL;DR-Iridin will be stepping down as GM of House of Zug, Dire will be assuming the role.
It’s true that officers in House of Zug don’t quit, they get promoted. Soon I’ll be moving from Texas to Orlando, Florida, including a complete change in jobs. Once I had settled on this path I let the other officers know, and we discussed our options. While I could have potentially stayed in my current role as GM, we all felt it better served the guild as a whole to have Dire step up. As many know, this isn’t an overnight quick happening, so there’s likely to be raids I’ll miss between now. Going into a new raid tier is the best time for the change of GM to happen, and I have no doubt that Dire will do a great job leading the guild, as he has our raid team since Legion was released. I’d like to thank Ravindra and Dire for staying on this entire expansion, as well as Ehleonahra for putting up with me over the past months as we’ve worked towards this end goal. I will remain on as an officer, helping with recruiting and wherever else I can. With that said, let’s get through Heroic Antorus together and look to Battle for Azeroth and all it’ll bring.
I'm honored to be able to take the mantle of GM on, and hope that we can continue to build upon the legacy of Zug. Iridin has done a great job leading after the founder, Barotar, opted to pursue his career with no distractions. We've managed, as a core officer group, with help from many people in the guild, to keep things running and ensure we are reaching our AHOTC achievements. This expansion has been a struggle, just like the last one was. Raiders have come and gone, and the content is getting completed at a rate unprecedented due to Mythic Plus. This allows us more downtime, and seemingly keeps us refreshed for each raid tier. Our leadership team has remained consistent throughout this expansion, which doesn't happen often in this game. 3 officers who have stuck through it an entire year is something we can be proud of. We owe it to the great people who have opted to become zuggies and the three of us appreciate the time and dedication each of you have brought to these encounters. For the Horde!
