With the addition of cross realm raids World of Warcraft is increasing being reliant on Pick Up Groups (PUGs) to progress through end game content. The biggest challenger for raiders and raid leaders is consistantly finding compentant and trustworthy people that they can maintain consistancy with.
Pug Life offers the solution to this problem. THrough the use of an AddOn raid leaders can mark thier progress through end game content, mark certain raiders as reliable or unreliable, and schedule raids. Raiders can check the status of a raid leader to find if s/he is worth going into battle with.
On the website raid leaders can manage upcoming raids and search for new members. They can also post pictures of previous kills, set up ventrillo servers (as a premium service), post strategies, and interact with all raiders. Raiders similary can view this progress and post thier own achievements.
The service will cater towards raiders, pvp'ers, those looking for Challenge Modes, and RP'ers.
I'm looking to take this idea to kick starter for a small amount (< $10,000) to hire a small team for web development and our initial servers. Income will be collected through a premium service and ad revenue. I'm looking for a designer to help give shape to the project from a marketing standpoint. When we goto Kickstart I want to come with a great looking product.
