Murphy’s Law states that if we have a new recruit along–either one thinking of joining, or one who just shelled out good money to transfer on the grand assumption that we don’t actually suck–we will, in fact, suck. At least a bit.
Of course the poor guy gets his first run with us on a night when we’re intentionally wiping on bosses for legendary shenanigans, so that’s splendid. Welcome to the guild, have some repair bills*. But theeeeen we proceeded to wipe on trash. Three times.
“I’M BRINGING HOME A PUPPY.”
‘Shit, where did these scorpions come from?”
“AMG ANOTHER DOG.”
….x2. Add in some fun with the fire elemental gauntlet and, well.
WELCOME TO SIB, WE WIPE ON TRASH.
SiB can’t be the only guild afflicted with this curse, though…can it?
*Gbank paid, though–we’re not that cruel.
A popular phrase in my guild is “eat a fucking muffin”. I can’t remember exactly where this came from-I think that one of our tanks was telling one of our DPSers to “chill out and eat a fucking muffin,” and we just latched on to the latter half.
While it amused me to put a muffin on our guild tabard, some others were not as tickled. They weren’t even amused by the tabard change just before that one, which had the same colors but retained our previous hooded face icon. Something about purple can get certain knickers in a twist, which is sad becuase my dear Ori loves her some purple.
So, I went and changed it in its entirety. There are, contrary to popular beliefs, “real” reasons why I felt a need to change the tabard…but I will discuss only one of them here.
Blue is clearly a superior color for a tabard.
Other changes abound for the Brotherhood! Our ranks have recently swelled, and there is much amusing flailing about by all parties. No one can keep names straight, and the poor people who joined our guild right before this sudden influx probably suffer the worst. They hadn’t learned all of BoO’s core yet, and suddenly here are 10 more people and their alts and oh my god what the fuck the alts, the alts, the aaaaallllts!
I feel that “the recruits”-collectively a group that transferred over from Doomhammer, once known as Elysium-are mixing in well. Last time BoO omnomnom’d a significant chunk of a guild, it went…poorly. They isolated themselves, refused to run anything but farm content with us, and eventually left en masse over a loot dispute.
I’m not the least bit worried about history repeating itself. When heroic groups form, they blend both groups, and their names are already liberally sprinkled throughout our raid sign ups. Considering that they all transferred to play with us I was only mildly concerned…and it’s good to relax on that front.
They’re crazy and pervy and we get along quite well so far! Of course, they have a few things to learn, still-the guild rule of Let Hunt Die hasn’t fully settled in yet. Some of them still think he gets heals. Pfft.
There have, of course, been…kerfluffles. One guildmate has already gquit over a misunderstanding. We scarcely blinked our eyes-seeing Sidearm remove his eleventy billion alts from the guild is something most of us have seen before. If he wants to leave over a minor incident without discussing things with the officers…again…then so be it.
Poor Xindi is far more upset over it than we are. This has led to some new guild rules:
1) Xindi is not allowed to apologize more than 3 times for the same thing.
2) Xindi is not allowed to feel bad for things that are not her fault.
She will learn these rules in time, too.
