Guildwatch: Loot reservations required {WoW}

Aug 12th 2009 3:07PM I'm offended by you being offended. But you are probably offended by me being offended, so I guess I have to say that I am offended that you are offended by my being offended by you being offended. Just keep going until I am offended the most FTW.

...Ummmmm...I think that's right...

I'll go w/ incentivize. They are not just encouraging it, they are providing incentive to do so (Better gear).

The biggest problem w/ 25 man raids is getting that many people on the same time frame and managing them ("Herding Cats"). I don't see why the "Fight" itself can't have the same "difficulty" for 10 man as it is for 25 man. You would just scale some things to account for the difference in the amount of people. At that point, it would justify the reward gear being the same. True, there would not be as much incentive to put together the 25 man runs without some extra incentive. Maybe that incentive could be things like mounts, or other extras that are BOE like rare profession training scrolls.

Officers' Quarters: Account sharing + officer = bad {WoW}

Apr 13th 2009 6:42PM "But what's wrong is to look at everyone in the guild and say "you guys are doing it wrong, and my way is right" "

LOL, sounds like that is what i am hearing from the account sharers. Something along the lines of, You don't want account sharing...how dare you..."you guys are doing it wrong, and my way is right"

The original post only stated that he did not want to belong with a guild that was OK with account sharing. Not that he was telling everyone else that they are wrong. There is a difference.

Apr 13th 2009 5:36PM Wow, this argument is pretty overwhelming in here.

I posted earlier, but may not have been clear. I think the big missing element is, if your guild is OK w/ account sharing, go for it. Everyone is in agreement at that point.

The problem is, a lot of people are stating how they trust this other person with their account because in real life they trust them w/ their car, bank account, money, SS#, or choice of shoes, etc. Those are personal things that are yours. You can trust all you want with them.

We are talking about trusting someone in a way that could affect others. Once you start to affect (or potentially affect) others, they now have a say how things should be handled. If someone is not comfortable with you sharing your account info, they have every right to want to be in a guild without the sharing.

If your real life relationship is going to be affected by something as petty as not letting your significant other play your char, you have bigger problems.

The #1 quote i have heard from my divorced friends "I never thought, in a million years, that she would do something like that" (they were stolen from, cheated on, had their cars wreaked, etc). So, you can trust all you want. Just don't get mad at us when we do not.

Find a guild that works with your sharing plan, but don't feel that we need to trust your gf, wife, etc, just because you want to.

It's not about being "hardcore". You may have missed the part where I said "While you may know these others and trust them, we do not."

I have had too many friends that trust their wife, girlfriend or "best friend" blindly only to get screwed over later. That may never happen in your situation, but how do I know that. You are asking everyone else in the guild to take that chance because you are willing to. That is not your call to make.

If you want to place that trust where it will only affect you, that is fine. When you put others on the line, it is no longer your call.

It's not hardcore because we wnt to secure something that we put a lot of effort into.

Apr 13th 2009 3:36PM It looks like a lot of people here are trying to come up with reasons why their version of sharing is the OK exception. I think one thing they are missing is, when someone invites you to a guild, they are inviting YOU. Not you and your girlfirend. Not you and your old school buddies...YOU. (Unless they joined w/ their own toons) While you may know these others and trust them, we do not. You now are making a judgement call for others that you should not be making. This may sound a bit harsh, but it is the reality of the situation.

March Guild of the Month: The Holy Crusade of Bleeding Hollow {WoW}

Apr 9th 2009 6:22PM Congrats. Sounds like you have a fine guild. It is a hard task to lead a guild, and to try to keep everything as fair and fun as possible.

I too am on Bleeding Hollow, and have had such a bad time finding a decent guild, I quit playing right before Wrath came out.

It seems most of the guild leaders out there are more interested in having the guild do their bidding, or give preferences to friends, even when they don't show as much (effort or time) as the regulars.

Now I am back and have opted not to join a guild, thus keeping the drama away. I hope to PUG with you guys soon.

WoW Moviewatch: Frontline Preview {WoW}

Mar 26th 2009 1:22PM "basically people screaming hysterically"?

Are you listening to the same song as me? Actually this songs vocals are a bit on the fluffy pop side with heavy distorted guitar (Oh nooooooo, no heavy guitar!!! I better close my ears). Yea, I can't wait for the Muzak videos. I can play those while taking a bubble bath. Give me a break.

Other than that, good job on the video looks pretty good.
