Oct 26th 2009 7:38PM Generally, when the term "GM husband and wife team" comes up it's a bad thing. Not just with the double dipping on loot (which is totally unfair to other people) but with guild things as well... I know I'm going to sound a bit negative, but the last time I had a GM wife and her husband that played she ended up kicking anyone her husband didn't like, which turned out to be half the guild... because they said his DPS was a little low.
But back onto the main subject, it is totally not fair for that to happen. If there is something that drops that is a higher upgrade to the other person, don't roll. Simple as that. There have been times where there were two people rolling on an item - me and another person - and I did pass it to them as they needed the upgrade more. But that is with one person, so the only person I would be "screwing over" would be myself.
Oct 15th 2009 9:48PM JUST raiders in PuGs messing around with marks? Heck, our assistants in our guild raids mess up marks enough and I don't think I've ever been in a raid where our RL wasn't yelling on vent "Why do I have a condom over my head!?!?".
Give the whole RAID access to those marks? You'll give the poor guy a heart attack.
Oct 15th 2009 9:44PM My old guild had a horrible way of dealing with ninjas. This probably spawned from the state of our server - there are very few "good" players who could raid our times (our server is mostly a leveling server/social server).
However, if a ninja was reported in the guild there were two ways it could go - if that person didn't raid and wasn't important (based on the GM) they were kicked. If it was an important raider who raided every night blah blah blah it was simply swept under the rug. I had reported ninja's several times, privately, to the GM. Her reaction? She told me that if she kicked those raiders our guild would fall apart because there would be no one to replace them.
Needless to say, I left the guild soon after and was branded as a troublemaker in her guild. Well, not that I care - I don't think anyone wants to run with a guild of ninjas, whether they are good players or not. And ninjas need to be punished, no matter who they are.
Oct 14th 2009 7:59AM This problem is one I've run across a lot of times. A lot of people on my server seem to be very sensitive about their DPS, like if I say it's too low on a fight it's like I'm actually insulting the person themself. Whether it's from gear or not knowing how to play your class, dps problems can generally be fixed. Generally when we run ToC and we keep wiping because of lack of dps, I do a short raid warning saying that we need to pick up the dps. I don't like to single anyone out, but if that doesn't work I'm going to have to boot them. I know that me and the nine other people in ToC really don't want to carry people - I know you came here to get geared, but if you're in blues and greens you really need to be running heroics, not ToC.
