I left Lyr in the image so that you can appreciate this happening when I’m on my priest and not my DK.

The culture of a guild is often a key point in guild selection. If you’re a very silly person in a very serious guild (or vice versa), chances are people will be rubbed the wrong way. Being a super serious raider in a casual raiding guild will drive everyone crazy–you’ll think they’re slackers, they’ll think you’re an elitst cumbucket, and no one will be happy.
Matching your personality to that of your guild is important–so tell me, why the hell do people stay in guilds they don’t like?
I set the tone of my guild more so than some GMs, in large part because so many recruits come from the blog. If you like the blog you usually have at least an appreciation for crude humor and absolute silliness, making Stands in Bad absolute hell for anyone who can’t stand a lot of penis jokes.
We had a guildie put in an app to another guild for his main and state that he had me on ignore because I “said stupid things”. And WORSE YET, when he’d complain? Everyone else would chime in and say THE SAME STUPID THINGS. Those Hyperbole and a Half quotes, man, aren’t they terrible?
He took his main out of the guild but left all his alts in, which confuses me terribly. If you hate the guild jokes so much–and they are all very much guild jokes by this point, WE ALL SAY ALL THE THINGS–why the bloody hell are you still around, shitting up the place with your poor attitude? And just to be clear I’m not talking about poor attitude meaning he just doesn’t like my jokes. I mean there’s been shit-stirring forum posts and the like during some other recent drama.
Let’s face it, in any given personality conflict situation, this sort of thing is what often ends up happening. The person who doesn’t fit in gets upset, and if s/he doesn’t just quietly leave some day, s/he usually starts acting up. Next thing you know they are stirring up shit and you often have no idea why.
Now I hate gkicking people, I really do, and the more tied up you are to other people, the more I hate doing it. In a case like this it’s even weirder: what do I say as to my reasoning? You’ve been kind of a giant cockmonger lately and we know you don’t like us anyway, so why don’t you get the fuck out?
It all comes back to the initial question for me: If people don’t like the guild, why do they stay? I can understand if a raid spot is important to you, but if you’re not raiding, what keeps you? If it’s for some particular group of friends, are they happy in the guild? If they are but you’re not, and you find yourself getting increasingly bitter over stuff, don’t you stop to think that maybe you’re starting to make it less enjoyable for them?
Guild culture is critically important for me–if I don’t like the atmosphere and the people, I’m not staying, and that’s seems to be the attitude of most people. Is there a motivation I’m missing here? Are level 25 guilds that awesome still? Is there an enjoyment some people take in pissing in the pool?
I boggle, internet.
ETA: WordPress just killed me with lulz.
You used the following categories and tags: Amber doesnt know what the hell is wrong with you sometimes, Stuff and Things, dinged up GM hat, what is this I dont even, and wtf.
Add a couple more to make your post easier for others to discover. Some suggestions: personality conflict, penis jokes, poor attitude, cumbucket, and absolute hell.
You’re right, WordPress. Cumbucket should really be a tag.
Now it is.

You are doing WHAT to my ice cubes?

MMO-Champ, in their merry datamining, dug up a teensy little change that none the less causes much flailing on my end: a 1.5 second cast time on hungering cold, which is currently instant.
Let’s do a quick review of what I use my beloved ice cubes for, shall we?
-a spell interrupt when my others are on cooldown (PvE and PvP)
-a way to stop spinny mobs of doom (PvE)
-an emergency “oh god this mob got loose HERE TANK GET IT” form of “CC” (PvE)
-a way to really piss off horde that are going for the same mining node I am (PvP) (MAI PYRITE BITCHES)
-A way to protect the flag carrier from being hounded (PvP)
-an AoE interrupt (o hai Cho’gal worshippers)
-Randomly, just to confuse people and to bring me delight (PvE and PvP!)
I may have forgotten something, but that is my general list of Things I Use Hungering Cold for as a frost DK. I use it a lot and love it to death. It’s also, importantly, a mandatory talent–you need it to pick up Howling Blast at the end of the tree.
Do you know how many of those uses are compatible with a cast time of 1.5 seconds?
None of them. Not a single god damned one. Except maybe the confuse and delight one, but then it would throw off my rotation more and this reduce my DPS and precious e-peen.
What the fuck, Blizz?
You can go ahead and nix that change right now. >:|
Search Terms of the Week
My favorite search terms of the week:
“the sexodar” (People still go there?)
“bastion of twilight penesis” (Where?)
“how to ascendant council” (how I mine for fish?)
“mine seagulls” MINE? MINE?
“amber is a dork” (yes, yes she is, by why was this a search term?)
“fucked up dragon on speed”
“omg every1 knoes dks cant tank lol nub” (LOL)
“what does it mean when you say “what is this i dont even”” will be explained by the ultimate winner of the week! Here it is:
“www you jizz fuck my sister”
I’m not kidding guys:
An Argument for DBM
Sounds silly that we’d need an argument FOR DBM, right? I mean, who DOESN’T use DBM, or their favorite equivilant?
Yeah, about that. Anyone who has ever tried to require an addon knows that someone, somewhere, will bitch about it. Back in BoO I tried to make everyone use DBM, but it was really hard when my co-GM couldn’t be arsed to use it himself.
“You don’t notice,” he’d brag. “I know the fights.”
“Steve,” I said wearily, or more often angrily, “I notice every single god damn time you ask how long it is until something happens and I have to look at my DBM timers and tell you.”
He may have gotten away with that in Wrath, but such an attitude is a total no-go in Cata. Fights are chaotic with MANY things to pay attention to, and stay out of–or in! Add in trying to keep on top of your rotation and procs an you’re going to miss some things.
No, you will. You WILL. You absofuckingloutely WILL, stop arguing with me–oh here, look. IT’S SCIENCE.
“Well,” some of the problem children may splutter, “SOME people notice. SOME people can split their attention better. I’m one of them.”
Really? Every single fight? You’re never tired or distracted or have a cat walk in front of you or otherwise need of GIANT BLUE TEXT?
I call bullshit.
Go install the god damned mod.
(Thankfully I don’t have this problem with anyone in SiB, but I figured that someone, somewhere…)
