Topic [A] 8/8 DS HM | 7/7 FL HM 25m 3night LFM
I won't deny that Beastyn can be a jerkface at times or that he can be a total hardass about certain things. BUT whater ever you may say or feel, he does get the job done at the end of the day.
On the same note, you wanted to apply to this guild but didn't see any value in evaluating performance from logs. I'm not saying that having good logs makes you a good player but it does present the recruiters with some semblance of information about how you play the game (random deaths to fire, damage output, damage on priority targets, overall DPS an so forth). There are a lot of players who have the gear but cannot, for one excuse or another, perform to the best of their abilities. Recount by itself is not good enough but maybe that is just my opinion.
As THE healing officer of Carnage, I don't know what standards you use in evaluating your apps or assume to know. However, I would hope that simply taking their word for it isn't enough for you to just take in every Tom, @*@% and Harry that applies. It would have helped if you knew someone in guild that would have vouched for you as a player as well.
I wouldn't say this guild is #1 in the world but for the time we put in, we are progressing at a fairly competent rate and are looking to finish this tier strong.
Anyway, at the end of the day, your feelings were hurt from what Beastyn said and you decided to post on this thread with a level 1 alt, which is totally unnecessary. Just post on your main and be done with it.
The funny part is that neither of you guys has actually said I'm wrong. I was expecting something like "Nah, he's a great guy!" Instead it's just deflect, derail, deflect, derail, umad, deflect, scoreboard, derail.
See here is the thing that I think your missing with your reasoning Beastyn isn't raid lead because hes a "great guy" or how warm he is that has nothing to do with it. He's were he is simply due to his own skill and hard work two things that I don't think you ever heard of much less understand. your whole beef seems to be that a person (most likely you) applied for a guild far above there skill level and was denied bluntly instead of being offered a cup of coco and a fire side chat and got butt hurt over it nothing more nothing less.
Just for the record though Beastyn's a pretty good guy when you get down never had any issues with him and I myself was only recruited this tier.

Wow. Ummm....I don't even know where to start with this. A pvp pal 'o mine mailed me and said I needed to check this thread out but didn't say why.
First, that's not my alt. Lvl 1s are for !@#$%^s. Plus I don't even agree with what mystery-hunter-coward is saying. : P
Second, I think I talked to beast like over a month ago. I actually didn't think he was rude. He seemed very pre-occupied like I'd caught him at a busy moment. All the same, he talked with me off and on for like an hour. I don't think that's "dismissive" at all.
Third, when I talked to beast I was planning to casually ask for general information, and he asked some questions I was admittedly not prepared for. As he noted, he gave me some good suggestions and had a very helpful discussion with me about the usefulness of logs. He also fairly noted that not all guilds are a fit for all folks. I was confused at the time about a few of his questions, but was overall more frustrated with myself. In any event it makes no sense to take to the forums to dump on somebody who nudged me in the right direction. : /
Hopefully this clears up whatever misunderstanding seems to have happened. Not sure I really get what's going on, tbh.
@ Cosmic: I guess you were trolling me. Whatevs, still a good question. ; )
A great feature of the new forums is the ability to ignore entire accounts rather than just single posting characters. For this feature to work, your forum account is given a single id that stays the same regardless of which character you're posting on. This id can be seen by viewing the page source and searching for your posting characters name. The account id is located to the right of the ignore button attribute. In your case this number is 6008390, the same as your alt Grsrege. Bridgetjones = Grsrege, Valaa = Nukleus. Use a separate account if you're too much of a %@!%@ to post on your main.
you must not have seen the Carnage recruitment spam in trade, they are the oldest guild on the server and are still around. i will admit every guild has there break aways, but ours already happened and its playing swtor right now.
