@ MalichaiI'm sorry, but if the best that your "crew" could come up with to speak their side of things was you, then they chose poorly. While it's true that every dispute has at least two sides to it, you do not do your side justice.Here's what I think happened. I think the guild leader made two mistakes here. One was allowing this "Eddie" fellow to talk to people whatever way he liked, because I'm willing to believe you on this one. I doubt your former leader is quite as innocent as he makes himself out to be and I'm certain he played down this guy's rude behavior. The other mistake, in my opinion, was inviting you and your "crew" in the first place.I lead a guild myself and I've made this mistake before. You don't invite prefab cliques to your guild. You just don't. It doesn't matter HOW good some of its players are. If you disagree with even one of those members (and it takes a strong ego to rally a group of people to hop from server to server, guild to guild, so disagreements are almost certain), you disagree with ALL of those members. It leads to a very uncomfortable situation for that guild leader and generally for any members in the guild from before that clique came around. The ensuing split is almost always filled with a massive amount of drama. So don't play innocent. It took two (or a dozen) to tango and you're just as much to blame for this as your former leader is.Also, that was pretty smooth there, the way you used your guildmate's death to attack your old leader one more time. You know, saying he was everything that Phobituary was not. Really fucking classy, man.And one last thing. I have real trouble believing you've ever been in the military. You clearly don't know shit about PTSD, let alone what causes it. If you developed PTSD from simply attending basic training, then you are a serious pussy. Like, the most serious of pussies. You do not get PTSD from basic training. You get PTSD from actual extreme mental and emotional trauma... like seeing combat, like being raped, like seeing someone killed, you know... REAL trauma. You do NOT get PTSD from being told to drop and give Sergeant Buzzcut 50 push ups. Get a clue.
