Jul 9th 2011 3:34AM And these are the same companies that are bankrupt, and/or their games have been shut down. See: Star Wars Galaxies (shut down), Faction Earth, only a matter of time before Aion is shuttered.
But keep on thinking companies, in this economy, can ignore players. They'll learn the following phrase pretty darn quick: Chapter 11.
Jul 9th 2011 3:13AM This 4000 honor is total BS. Why in h*ll would Blizzard put out gear that is good for one WEEK? The 4k honor does not compensate people who spent the time to grind for the gear, which could easily cost 20,000k honor. Nor does it compensate people for the gems/enchants/arcanums/threads used on the gear.
Not even close to a solution, and I think if Blizzard doesn't do FAR more, players will leave. I know I will be done with this game forever if this isn't fixed. And by fixed, the gear needs to be converted to the current season. Period.
Aug 20th 2007 6:39PM I am glad the guild leader was given the epic mount. It is a good advertisement for the guild. It's a small token of appreciation for the leader.
I laugh at all the dopes and know-nothings who whine and bitch, "I would have /gquit," or "ninja" or "epeen whores." You know nothing about running a raiding guild, especially one that is at the top of its game. These are the same players who contribute nothing to a raid, other than hitting the "login" button and waiting for their summon to the instance -- yet expect first dibs on everything that drops. You can just smell the jealousy of these haters as they drop their hypcritical "epeen whore" comments. I say to each one of you: you'll never see that mount, or anything comparable. Competent guilds don't want you. Dedicated guild leaders don't want you. Quit the game, because no one cares if you do.
Leading a guild of raiders is a thankless job. Stressful. Most people don't want to do it. Just keeping on top of your /whisper channel with myriad whiny players is a job unto itself. A job you know nothing about. Nothing.
This was the right decision. Better that the mount went to the guildleader than some raiding noob who got lucky with a high /roll. A few whiners don't like it? Too damn bad. Quit the guild, quit the game, cast your aspersions. No one cares.
Congratulations guild leader.
