Stepping out of the shadows a moment to address this:
People listen to me even though most people outside of Paramount (And a majority inside of Paramount) do not respect me.
I make it a point to make a complete !@# out of myself to show how not-serious I am about this game, and still get some amount of work done.
I have friends in almost every other major guild on the server. Even some of the Horde guilds. (Voodoo. Dem. <3) When Reague of Regends was around, I wasn't a friend with any of them. And I didn't respect their guild as a whole. I respected their skill as players, but disliked them as players at the same time. It's less about the quality of your skill, and more about the quality of your players.
But that's the type of server that Muradin is.
When Dabu came over, I fell prey to my own hubris, in forgetting what Muradin was supposed to be for a lot of us. I turned into Scuttles for a little while.
Slowly but surely, many of you of our blue side have noticed the complete lack of trust and authority within the Alliance. This all has become manifest, first, after the coming of Dabu, and more specifically, at the location of where the two opposing factions clash in the grounds of Galleon. Whereas the Horde seemed to have improved in teamwork and organization, and especially in power, many of us on the other side have fallen into complete complacence.
The Horde has always been superior in teamwork over the Alliance. The fact of the matter is, they never had a powerful playerbase as they did when Galv was around. They sat around in their internment camps, wallowing about the good old days while the Alliance stomped around in their big-boy boots. (Warcraft 2 reference) Once Dabu appeared, it was sort of like gaining a Warchief to them. By that time, the Horde finally stepped up and said as a collective: "Oh look, we are strong. Let's use that strength."
Why have none of the Alliance guilds stepped up to the plate to challenge this power shift? Your spirit of competition has probably evaporated, but why continue to fall on your asses when "real" raid groups are wallowing in uncertainty? - there is no trust, no clarity in communication, just a fray of thoughts with people yelling, "do this, do that": the clueless leading the front to eventually lead the blind off the cliffs.
I mentioned that I had forgotten what Muradin was about earlier in the post, and this quote directly references it. The Spirit of Competition was never the point of what the guilds of Muradin were trying to accomplish. Sure, getting realm first anything would be amazing. I got Realm First Warrior, and it felt good to see my name broadcast across the server.
We play the game to enjoy it. We spend money on the game to enjoy it.
Muradin as a whole is a casual server. Casual. Not hardcore. Not semi-hardcore. Not serious. Casual. And I forgot that fact, so Paramount's image suffered for it.
But I can guarantee that a great majority of my guildmates don't care about what other's think of us. They might care when I make the guild look like a bunch of dicks, and counteract their efforts to make us look better, but they don't care what other's think.
Your spirit of competition has probably evaporated
The boss kills haven't stopped coming. We've simply stopped posting that we've been killing bosses.
Paramount: you certainly have influence, but others do not respect you, therefore, you have no power.
See my first comment of this post.
P.S. You forgot to mention Exiled Alliance in that list of guilds. (<3 you Ruine)
If even a few members of some reliable guilds actively take charge and support each other, we might actually get somewhere. If any members of the guilds I've mentioned actually know what they're doing, then please, help supplement the right arguments and bat some sense into the rest who just "wing" everything.
It isn't our job to fix them. It's their job. If they don't want to be fixed, then there is literally nothing we can do.
Quit sitting in the !@#$ you made and actually try to get better. It's not hard to read.
Posting a large thread on a forum that only a few guilds read, mostly to troll, isn't the audience that you're targeting. The audience you're targeting is out there, on the server.
To the shadoooowwsss!
