The Deaf Raiding Guild Undaunted Has Defeated Heroic Sire Denathrius
21 giorni fa
Following on the success of last tier, Undaunted, a group of two guilds (one on EU, one on NA) focused on providing an environment where deaf/hard-of-hearing players would be able to thrive, has been hard at work again. This time, their EU chapter (Fearless) successfully took down Denathrius on heroic mode, netting them all a well-deserved Ahead of the Curve achievement!
The Sire encounter is full of moments where quick thinking, rapid decisions and efficient communication are key, particularly in phase 3. Being in an environment where this communication is inhibited makes this even more of an achievement than normal, especially when you consider the global lack of resources available in a format that can be used by an audience without audio.
The kill video is available below:
Similar to what they have been doing in Ny'alotha, the Undaunted community puts a lot of effort into producing guides usable by people able to understand sign language. You can see their strat breakdown of the Sire fight here, in International Sign language:
Ever since Ny'alotha, more and more streamers have been putting effort into adding automated captioning to their streams - from individual streamers like
to guild-run events such as the Race to World First (
all had captions running for the entire event!). This has progressively lowered the barrier in terms of content, but it is still in early days and fraught with difficulties, both in terms of technical limitations and lack of adoption.
To add another issue, unlike the NA part of Undaunted, the EU chapter also has to deal with localized sign language. Much like the diverse linguistic background that is the fabric of Europe, sign language has its equivalent, with almost every country having their own "variant" of sign language. To quote Wildjoy, one of their raiders and the guild master of the EU chapter of Undaunted:
Biggest problem, would be communication and being accessible for all. We have many all over europe with their own language and this also meant their own sign language. Each countries has their own signs. Surprisingly, not all of us know international sign language.
With time and patience, we quickly adapted and adjusted to all our team needs to be able to explain strategies and tactics.
We have a team working together to create videos, with sign and subtitles and we have each person from each country translating it into their own language.
