Team Horde - Led by BrutallStatic
OpenRaid is proud to host the "Retro Raid Races" of FinalBossTV and BrutallStatic's Epic WoW Battles of History. This is a series that features head-to-head match ups where the Alliance and Horde duke it out doing crazy awesome things in the World of Warcraft.

The Retro Raid Races will consist of a Horde vs. Alliance raid team, battling against a timer to complete a series of Classic, Burning Crusade, Wrath & Cataclysm Raids before the other team. At the conclusion of all three events, one team leader will be crowned the victor!

Correct. I believe you still need to do the attunement quest to quickly enter at the orb.

To enter BWL, attunement is still required, correct? Or was that finally taken out?
