Seriously man? We're gettin all those perks as baseline instead of talents. Thats awesome! As an officer of a big raiding guild, I love this over the talents. Its not an insult to the officers, its giving the officers free cake. You know in between bosses, and during the day in guild chat, how people argue over how to do their talents and which piece of gear is better and other things. Those arguments are going to go straight over to the talent system if it was implemented. People would be bugging the GM and officers: "Dude, why do we have X talent? We could get Y talent and it would be so much better dude zomg! You officers are stupid!" I'm sorry I don't wanna deal with that. Now we can certainly make our guild rules and they have to deal with them all the same, but its more of a subjective thing. While talents would be subjective as well, you KNOW guildies wouldn't see it that way. They'd just say there's a cookie cutter spec.Regardless of what we can argue, if your pissed and think GC is out to nerf YOU, then your being silly. At the end of the day we're gettin all the talents instead of just a few, which is the best scenario. This article just reeks of a parody of "Blizz hates my class" and is now "Blizz hates me as an officer, me personally."

I agree with you, especially on the point that as a GM, I /DON'T/ want to be the one that has to make that call. The reason being that these were points that the group worked up to, and then were put in my hands to decide how all that effort was spent. At least with loot or rare drops, the RNG (at least in my guild) decides who gets that reward objectively.That being said, I don't get everyone's QQ at Scott here. He made a sound argument and his opinion just differs from most other people (which is strange because last week it seemed like everyone and their mother was crying foul at guild talents removal, and only a couple people were pointing out the advantages). I think his points were valid and his opinions backed up. I, as well, would have liked to see an example of some of the bigger and smaller talents they were planning on adding, and I enjoy the idea of being able to customize a guild.So its fine to disagree with the writer here, but let's not attack him. There may have been some QQ-y parts in his article, but he's miles above the shit you see on the forums.
