“Paragon” leaving the World of Warcraft Raiding Scene
#1
Paragon has been a leading force in world-record raiding for years and specializes in Heroic 25-man raids. In Wrath of the Lich, King, they were the first to beat Anub’arak and The Lich King himself.

In Cataclysm, they were the first to down Nefarian, Sinestra, Ragnaros and Al’Akir. Paragon also commands several 10 and 20-man records for Mist of Pandaria and Warlords of Draenor, as well as many world-first runner-ups.

“We have decided to stop raiding which obviously means we will not be a part of the world first race in Legion. In the end, it came between going international, playing with suboptimal Finnish roster or quitting. 
For a while, I was seriously considering going the international route, but, in the end, decided it was not worth the trouble for me. This question has been looming over our heads for a long time as it has always been a challenge to get a solid Finnish 20-25man roster together and, this time, there was no 10man option to bail us out. 
Going forward I have no idea if we will be playing WoW in any capacity in the future, we will have to see what is the situation when Legion launches. In the meantime, you might see some of us in the fields of Overwatch.”

Such a shame to hear, they were always a guild to aspire towards, so to hear them leaving the raid scene is rather a shame. I do hope however that they can restructure and achieve something else in the future.
From the sounds of things, they could be looking to push their way into other games and change their outlook. This would allow them to command a pretty decent leadership in other games.

In all honesty, Paragon DOES have the power as a guild to go into internation or competitive gaming. However, I do doubt that they will, as they always mentioned (in the past) doing it for fun, and not for competitive with the money aspect.

All in all, a great report @'Gamevify' but rather sad news.
Thanks for sharing!
