The Amber is displeased. Why is the Amber displeased? Because I hate people getting their panties in a twist and ragequitting without, you know, discussing shit. When we post proposed changes on the officer forum and ask for your input, then we want your input. We do NOT want you to hike up your skirts, scream that you don’t like us anymore, and leave.
You want to do that, then fine, get your childish ass out of my mother fucking guild and good riddance. If you truly don’t like the way things are going, why don’t you sit down and discuss it? Concerned about new guild ranks diminishing the importance of people who don’t raid? Well, how about some alternatives? Where’s your ideas? I want your ideas. I don’t want your poorly typed out LJ-style flounce post.
We are not “ruining a social guild”. We are trying to shape up a raiding guild. Raiding, see that? Raaaaiiiiidiiiiiing. Raiding requires a certain amount of skill and discipline. Oh, and time investment. Do we have people in the guild who can’t play worth a shit? Well, yeah. But they’re friends and we love them and they hang out and occasionally we shove purples at them from a farming run. Do we have people in the guild who are skilled but can hardly run with us? Yes, and we miss them terribly, and squee with joy every time they DO get the chance to join us. Do we have good people who ARE here all the time, and are thus the raiding core? ….why yes, yes we do. We have and love all those kinds of people and we always have and we always will. Do the casuals really need full bank access to our raiding flasks and a Core Raider title? …no.
One of the most sissy of the flouncers actually told us that we didn’t have a good raiding core to build from. Wait, what? What the hell am I, chopped liver? Kyr? Zoja? Mach? Harryotter? Huntres? All those other people who do their job and do it well? And since when were we a social guild? What the fuck were we doing in Burning Crusade, having tea parties in SSC? I don’t remember tea parties, I remember tanking some mother fucking bosses and winning some mother fucking loot in a MOTHER FUCKING RAIDING GUILD.
So excuse me, I’m going to go recruit some more RAIDERS for our RAIDING GUILD. Then we are going to run some RAIDS. During said RAIDS, we are going to be SOCIAL and make fun of Mikata because it’s easy, and Harryotter is going to die and we’ll lol at him, and Zoja is going to pick on Huntres, and it’ll be fun. WHILE RAIDING.
So congrats, two officers who seldom participated anyway. Your previous contributions to the guild that once earned you your titles are missed, but shall no longer carry you through this expansion. You flounced. Now those of us who actually do the work these days will…uh…continue doing the work. So uh…nothing has changed, really, except that we’ll proceed with shifting the guild ranks and bank permissions with fewer badly typed rage posts on the forums*.
