Topic Li'l pep talk from Rutger
Edited by Rutger on 6/3/13 1:15 PM (PDT)
*Please note that this is aimed at the Alliance side and has no bearing on the Horde, with which I have had very little experience on this particular server, but which will always remain my true faction.
Congratulations Thunderlord, you have succeeded in destroying what little hope I had left for this game and it's community. This is no small feat, given that WoW ranks among the greatest video games of all time in terms of the scope of it's content and it's lasting appeal, but you have done a first rate job my friends!
To explain, I will begin with a short history:
I transferred to this server at the start of Cataclysm on the advice of a friend,
"They have a great battlegroup and besides, it's in a closer time zone. You should consider faction change to the Alliance as well because they're stronger on Thunderlord."
"Alright," I thought, "I have only ever played Horde characters and would be willing to give the Alliance a shot, they're rumoured to be competent raiders, and you're my friend so I trust you."
We are no longer friends.
I can't speak for the entire Alliance, but on this server at least, the atmosphere is so dismal and devoid of any fun or originality, it might as well be Soviet Russia.
On my previous server I was part of a community of good humour and respectful one-upmanship. We had plenty of trolls who were actually encouraged, because some of their banter was downright hilarious and provided much mirth in the days when people actually read trade chat. Having made similar attempts at conversation since my xfer:
Thunderlord, and I quote, "We don't do that here."
GG, you're the overprotective suburbanite soccer mom equivalent of an mmo server.
Moving forward, I feel its also worth noting that since joining this server I have been kicked from no less than 3 guilds, on some downright trivial pretenses.
<Righteous Kickflip> Rated BG, i decided to switch to shadow rather than my typical disc spec for this particular AB match. Officer realizes about half way through and proceeds to throw a vent tantrum. I perform well, we win the match. *You have been removed from the guild.*
<Vertigo> Lost City of Tol'Vir 5-man. A couple of officers in the group. We wipe on the first boss due to them standing in the explosive bright yellow custard bombs. I drop group out of frustration. *You have been removed from the guild.* I later found out that the officer who did so was 13 years old at the time... Myself, being a grown man with an extensive gaming history, this blew my mind.
<Complexity> Won't go into detail here becaue it would breach Blizzard's ToS, but I will say that I was kicked while offline, behind my back, without even being given a chance to defend myself against the searing accusations which had been hurled against me.
In closing, you guys really ought to lighten up a little. This collective, hall-monitor hive mind you have adopted doesn't bode well for the future of your server. If you really want to know why it's so dead here now, you need look no further than your snivelling, self-righteous holier-than-thou attitudes. It's time to wake up and smell the mojo, and maybe, just maybe, we can then begin to build this server back up to the blazing monolith of it's former glory.
Let me get this straight, you want US to lighten up a bit but the entire content of this post is you complaining about the stupidest possible things I could even conceive of? You have been gkicked from 3 guilds, all of which were due to what amounts to selfish, childish behavior, then state how being kicked by a 13 year old officer "blew" your mind. This entire post reeks of irony, especially this gem: "snivelling, self-righteous holier-than-thou attitude". Good luck in your endeavors.
ok i caved and read some more.
you go into a guild dungeon group, a couple people die, and then you rage quit the group.
you queue into a rated bg where it is apparently understood that you will be healing, but instead you go shadow.
you do something so horrible you can't even write it on the forums.
farewell guy we all just realized was on this server 3 hours ago. you will be truly missed.

Man first few lines so relevant.
Newcomer-"That is a very strange custom"
Local-"I suppose it does seem strange from a foreigners perspective"
Newcomer-"It seems normal to you?"

The way I am reading it, it looks like you're a whiny, overly sensitive little gnome who doesn't follow orders well and likes to make excuses and blame others. It would seem to ME that you just need to learn patience, tolerance, and how to take orders. Then maybe you wouldn't get kicked so much. :)
