So, let's say you're a rat on a sinking ship. We should name the sinking ship something suitably epic. Like, oh I dunno.... the S.S. Maelstrom. So you're huddled on the S.S. Maelstrom along with all the other rats. You could have jumped to another ship that wasn't sinking, but for whatever reason you decided to stay. Maybe you've spent over 5 years building and refining your nest with your friends, and it's so comfortable, and you could bring your bed with you but all your friends live there and you would miss them too much to go. Plus, the ship was highly-populated when you decided to make your nest there, and you're holding out hope that one day things will be like that again. So here you are.
Most of the rats are pretty friendly with each other. Although rats keep jumping ship for places like the S.S. Tichondrius, you get along well with the rats in other nests and it's a pretty cozy situation. All of a sudden, a new group of rats comes along and starts building a new nest. They're pretty small, their nest kinda sucks (naturally, because it's new) but they keep to themselves, so everything is cool. Every once in a while they come out for cheese and to recruit new members to join their nest, but they don't have a reputation (good or bad) yet.
Then on Friday, Galleon, the <Welfare Cheese Vendor>, comes to town. This only happens twice a week, so everyone on the ship is starving! The best part is, every rat can get exactly one piece of cheese, no matter how many rats are lined up. You just have to line up properly so everyone gets a piece. So, you and the other rats on the ship all start lining up (in the requisite groups of 40).
All of a sudden, the new group of rats cuts to the front of the line, crowds around the vendor, and starts taking cheese before they're supposed to. "Hey!" the crowd begins to protest squeakily. But nothing doing. So the new rat pack gets their cheese, but nobody else was able to get any. Then the first mate of the new rat pack, let's call him Icegore, stands up on his spindly hind legs and starts beating his chest. "SEE YOU GUYS ON THE NEXT ONE BUT MAYBE THIS TIME PULL INSTEAD OF SITTING THERE THAT IS ALL..HAVE A GOOD DAY SCRUBS. its cause they are scrubs they need the gear."
A bold, resentful rat, let's call him Ezix, states, "'Good day scrubs,' hasn't downed Elegon on reg." The other rats murmur their agreement and exchange amused grins. It would seem that Icegore and his fellow rats are, ironically, the scrubs they're attempting to mock. Then the captain, let's call him Krysanth, pipes up, "when we down elegon and will tonight whats gonna be next? you guys havent done HoF yet?" But that prediction was not to be, for a highly-skilled pair of rats with essential roles in the pack (who only recently joined) defected shortly after the controversy, leaving Icegore and Krysanth holding their ratty genitals in each others' hands.
The rest of the rats around the welfare cheese vendor's dead body begin making whispered plans. This isn't how things work on the S.S. Maelstrom. They become determined to ruin the new rat pack's reputation on the ship. Although the rest of the rats in the new pack might be ok for all anyrat knows, their leaders are clearly douchebags. And the rest of the rats on the ship deserve better than that. Then Krysanth spoke up one last time, "besides infamy is much better than fame, ill take it for the guild any day of the week."
Welp, here's your infamy, <Trust Company>. Enjoy never fielding another raid in your sorry careers on Maelstrom. Reference: http://i.imgur.com/xYGrsYD.jpg
OMG I was there! Gallpocalypse 2013 imo
e: In all seriousness though, I probably shouldn't have said what I did, I do feel a bit guilty about it, and don't usually make a habit of calling people out. But between the irony of it all, and the wanton, flagrant disregard for server decorum, well... Somebody needed to show people that manners are important, and that hypocrisy is not taken lightly on the internet.

It was highly-stylized, in the manner of the great allegories of our time.
Frankly, Maelstrom is too small and inbred for a guild NOT to be blacklisted after pulling shenanigans of this nature. We're basically West Virginia. Fool us once, shame on you (etc)
Guys guys, you got a it wrong. We attacked them, and they defended themselves.
[1. General][Icegore]: trust company owns all:)
[1. General][Krysanth]: awww, you guys are done? :-( no fair
We're all just really immature, and they have high character and resolve.
PS: Icegore, as I told you, when you try to troll me on your alt, please untick the share achivements option. Also, try to think of something better than "zomg hearth to trade, is it tue what THEY are saying about you!?!?"
I've taken the liberty of copying a quick tutorial for you:
In the top right hand corner of the achievement window, there is a drop down menu. On your alt, select "incomplete". The achievements you have not earned on that character will be displayed.
I'm very interested in your progress on Elegon and Will! Hopefully next week you can replace those members!

Wow lol i wish i could have seen this earlier. So is this where the babys off the server hangout to cry? First off im a tank people tell me to pull the boss well so be it i did. I also was not even the person that pulled him oh wait cause im a tank and had the aggro so its blame me? Eithay i really dont care its just funny to watch adults cry over a game. TO the lock that made the threat of greifing me your more then welcome to but im pretty sure you will only lose in the end. Good to see magic gladiator is filled with cry baby adults at least that guild has stayed true to their image since it was created. Have a good day:)
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
