When we became a "preferred" server, and the free transfers opened up, so many people flooded in it was impossible to keep up with them all. It was like a small town where oil had just been discovered, and all the big city folks came in to stake a claim.
That sums it up. Especially the favorite bar part.
01/31/2013 05:20 PMPosted by AnablueThe point of me making this thread is that it is a very unwelcome feeling to look at the servers I've played on and realize how many people will have even a clue as to what i'm speaking about.
I don't know how to troll the original post. There is just no point to it. The OP seems to just want to draw attention to himself and his "I used to love this server *dramatic pose*, but it has changed over time and even though I'm not here *another dramatic pose*, I feel unwelcome *end of dramatic pose*". Huh? Also, L2paragraph.
And then its followed by a buncha whiney girls like Finni who reminisce like my granddad who always reminds me how he saw small pox and had a black and white TV. WHAT'S THE POINT OF THIS CRAP? Completely useless thread. I'm dumber for having read it.
I was saying it like I would in regular language. And thats not even close to what I was saying. I was simply stating that it sucks losing contact with the friends you had over multiple servers. For instance, pvping with Baumel and Mappy at 4am in the morning and staying up till the following afternoon then crashing out till raid time and then just hangin with your buds till the wee hours of the morning again. How could one not miss that?
I've only been playing since mid cata, so personally I can't say I know many if any of the names in the OP, but I do know a lot of players who've been here since vanilla and BC. My wife had a guild just as BC hit on Scryers called Red Moon Rising, the GM of Hell, a big guild in BC and WotLK and his wife recently joined my guild. I regularly raid with a few people who've been around since BC and before as well/ The common thread among all of them is that "We really like this server, but things got so nuts and stressful we had to move" or some stopped playing altogether.
Change is a constant, people, guilds, they come and they go, the best you can do is make yourself happy, it's a game, games are supposed to amuse, entertain and occasionally challenge us. Too many people haul their personal issues and agendas into their game playing and the result is usually a mess.
In the just under a year my guild has been formed it's seen a lot of change, core people have come and gone, people I considered the real heart of my guild, friends, the expansion saw a lot of people who were happy to ride their item level to success fled when MoP made them work for it again. I lost my raid lead, my main healer, 5 of my main raiders, and still, here we are, progression raiding finally, clearing content and gaining ground.
The Scryers is an odd little community, unlike any of the other servers I've put toons on since I started playing, it's insulated in many ways from mainstream WoW, tucked away to itself it a relatively far off corner of the game. That being said, I've made friends here, I've met people I truly enjoy, have I considered moving the guild to another server? Yes, but for now I'm working to make my guild, my players and hopefully the server in general better.
Too many people are willing to toss in the towel and give up, I'm not of that mindset, adversity doesn't deter me. In two years I've gone from being an utterly horrible n00b button masher to a decent player, a pretty good tank and a passable raid leader, as a GM? You'd have to ask my guild, but I keep things fun, social and as lewd as I can.
In the end, this is a game guys, enjoy it, wring your hands less, bring less personal drama into the game and just have some damned fun.

01/31/2013 06:19 AMPosted by ToffeesServers die because people give up on them. You can fight to change the world you live in or you can give up on it and throw in the towel. If you Xfer'd then you gave up, and noone gives up on something they truly love.
Can I get an AAAMEN from the congregation bruthas and ahh sistahs... the man speaks the truth!
I always knew I liked you Toffees.
From a personal standpoint: The issue with the drama is nothing more than egos trumping friendship, and egos that spun situations out of control that crossed the line.
I also had contributed to that, and for that, I apologize to everyone. I got bored. I got mouthy. I got out of hand.
I have no regrets. I had a freaking blast. I'm ready for stability.
The problem is, how does one rebuild from that. I have no clue.

That's always the first step.
With everyone and everything. That's the first step and always the first new brick put down in rebuilding.
