ROFL! Seriously! This made me laugh so hard! We totally have this player in our guild! (No, not that exact one, but you know what I mean.)Over a year ago there was this terrible guild leader of a terrible guild known for noobs, ninjas, and being generally terribad. He was considered to be blacklisted by us, we wouldn't run anything with him or his guild. Fast-forward to late 2009, and some priest applies to our guild. We're careful about invites, and he passes, and he starts to play with us. He's a little nooby, but nice, and he's trying. He whispers me one day and says "You know, I don't really feel like a part of this guild, what can I do to be more involved?" I give him some hints (Social Officer duty, you know), and a few days later the GM whispers me, "AH! Did you know that [new priest] is [former guild leader of the terribads], just with a namechange?!?!?!?!?!" AHHHHHHH! After the initial shock wore off, I was told that apparently he had indeed become more social, chatting and playing with the guild, participating in raids and hopping in vent, revealing said fact, and shocking most of the guild. But hey, he's a really nice player and we kinda like him now, so I guess he can stay, right? In the end, he made a forum signature with a custom achievement which reads:"Become the most hated player on your server.Get a name change.Become a good player and raider in a guild thatmakes fun of your previous name nightly."It's totally true too, he's a great guy and a good raider now. True to form for our guild, he'll never live it down. Poor guy, at least he knows we tease him in good humor. He just had to outgrow some immaturity issues apparently. We even have have another one now, who was known for being a ninja, but turned over a new leaf. So it's obviously possible, and frankly I feel a little bad for the guy if they really did kick him for having a RL. If they didn't, well I hope he's grown up. I completely agree with the Drama Mamas, give him a chance and keep your mouth shut. You can keep some great players that way. And should he tell them later, I hope they are as good-natured about it as my guild has been about our recovering baddies.
