Heroic BoT…wow (and other (drama) stuff)

The plan we have in mind is to kill Sinestra before MoP drops.  An easy enough thing to say on paper…blog…you know what I mean, not so easy in action.

Last night we went into DS to kill DW as we missed him last week, can i say butt kicked.  I thought it would take me longer to get pugs and blah blah.  Anyway, we were done in about 20 minutes.

Let’s take a few moment to talk about the drama of the night though :)

Bad Guild Juju and Looking for Guild.

I have just found out, that apparently – another mutiny is occurring in my alliance guild with different people this time – apparently the good players wanting to get rid of the bad players, and are asking for the GL to stand down so they can shake up the raid team.

I am just amazed at the amount of bad juju in this guild.  I must have cursed it or something when I left…I don’t remember doing any curses, but then my mage is very powerful and she is out of control sometimes….

Are you a team player or not?

The title question is something every person has to answer at some point in their WoW raiding lives.

Are you a team player or not?

I am sure the answer would be different for every person, and their perception of the question and how to answer it would be based on their own life experiences.

Done and dusted

Onto the excitement, my Shammy got to 83 yesterday :) I am so happy for her. I am playing enhancement and enjoying it more than I thought I would to be honest!

I am lucky to have a very gifted enh shammy that I married and he was giving me some great tips :) I have never been a fan of melee, but shammies seem to handle it better…or maybe I am not clueless….no idea :)

We should have hit 85 sometime this week with these current toons, so that is a little exciting :) That will make my shammy toon number 5 at max cap, my priest will be hot on her heels!

Onto the guild drama though!

Hard to move on…

Last night, a person came back into the game that I promised myself I would never ever be in the same guild as again.

There had been mention on the guild forums of a possible return and I had already started dreading the day he would log back on.  He was a quarter of a group that I despise more than words can readily express.

I have already notified my GM that I will not be staying in the guild as long as he is active, but I will continue raiding with them if need be, but I cannot stay there with this person and everyone treating him as a long lost friend when he and the others destroyed me and my love for my guild and WoW.

I have not yet removed my toons from the guild as I wanted to just have a day to think it over, and although I am not angry or upset about it anymore, I made a promise to myself and I will stick with it because I don’t need to be reminded every time I log into the game of what happened back then.

At the end of the month when Blizzard takes my 15 bucks I will be happier knowing I am not putting up with shite just because I feel I need to.

Last night I was considering just seeing how active he was before leaving, but in the end that feels like I am just letting it go and that I don’t have an issue with it – which isn’t the case.  My grudges last a lifetime.

So, I need to start the hunt for a new guild….

Loot drama and not enough people again

I know – everyone is saying it – we are apparently getting to the end of an expansion…I say apparently as I don’t have a release date for MoP yet – do you??!@?!  And if it is released in November – is that close?  Nope, is that end worthy?!!?  I don’t think so.

But!!

Why is it so hard for 10 people to be online at the same time so we can raid?!

This post is a little ranty – feel free to skip over it :)

Was it good for you?

Attendance boss struck tonight again, so we went and did BH and then attempted FL.  I say attempted because we wiped on trash multiple times and we couldn’t get Shannax down.

We were 9 manning him and getting to about 1% by shear dumb luck as everyone was dead by the 10% mark really.  We had a mix of alts and mains, however the alts are just as well geared as mains thanks to obsessed guildies with too much time on their hands and LFR.  We were also 2 healing with a pally and a shammy.

I am so frustrated that we cannot even do FL even being over geared as we are we should be able to get in there and not have too much trouble…shouldn’t we??

I am contemplating trying to get my mage into another guild for progression and leaving my boomy with my guild to raid with them as well.  Finding a progression guild that raids on friday night/saturday morning may be a struggle though…I could maybe do a wednesday morning raid as well, which means i could look at US guilds I suppose and not just oceanics…

I am frustrated because I do want to see content, I would like to be running with people who can play and don’t blame class imbalance as to why they can’t do better.  We are not talking about top end players here so the difference between what can be achieved at our level is not the factor…..I am frustrated with constant afk’s, late starts, and general inability to get in or out of the fires….

GAhHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*end minor rant*

Precious Beth

I may have pissed off a guildie the night before last whilst we were raiding…He hasn’t spoken to me in 2 days and does not respond to my whispers….

Last night, I managed to get sat out of the raid so I didn’t have to worry about it, but it just slightly annoys me that because I offered help – he got snarky and even after I apologized for any offence caused he still decided to shun me.

The issue with a text based conversation I guess –  sarcasm, humour, affection are not conveyed correctly, if at all.  This has annoyed me more than I would like to admit, as I really found him a nice person to chat to and I was not really seeing the precious side of him that everyone warned me of.

Loot whore

Yup, tonight brought out the nasty cat in me and I have to admit I feel slightly ashamed.

After being back for one month now, hubby and I have done heaps of work on getting our toons geared up. Dailies, heroic, Z heroics, raiding, reputation etc – everything.  We are considered  casual raiders, so in theory are not required to raid all the time, however there have been very few raids we have missed since getting our gear score up high enough to be raiding.

My husband has managed to get about 5 pieces out of raids so far..both for main and offspec – he has been lucky.  I have not seen any gear that I dod not work for – excluding the two pieces of pvp gear from that dog thing…which since i was th eonly mage in the run were essentially handed to me….but I am wearing the gloves because they were a massive jump on the blues I originally had.

So tonight when a tier piece dropped for mage shoulders which would replace my blue shoulders I was sooo excited that i squealed over voice comms and then asked if i could need.  Since everyone in the guild has all epics in every slot and is pretty well doing ok gear wise I was a litle miffed when the DK rolled need as well and won them.  I made a snarky comment on voice comms and then sat there and fumed that he would even contemplate rolling for a tier piece when he was wearing 359 piece in that slot.

He then made some comment about how it was a sidegrade for him but it would be useful for something and i then linked my blues in chat and said, yeah I hope the sidegrade is worth it! I messaged the GL(who is also the raid leader), and he whispered me back  a sad face….obviously not really sure what I expected him to do, but that sort of annoyed me as well that sharing of gear in the guild is not an issue.

He then decided to give me the token after his father told him to consider that the upgrade would be more beneficial to me.  I was very appreciative of it, but what annoys me is that it just shouldn’t have even happened.  I am not a loot whore, and I spent 2 years as a GM not taking any loot over others because it just didn’t matter to me, and in all honesty I was not expecting my reaction to the situation. Would it not be a polite thing to see what your competition is wearing before rolling need on an item – roll greed – go for it….but need?  when you are fully aware it is a side grade for you anyway?

I am slightly ashamed with myself and annoyed that I got miffed over a piece of gear…such a childish thing to do.  It is just one of those reminders that I am not a GL anymore, I don’t control loot rules, guild rules or the ability to make people use some courtesy in regards to sharing gear around to benefit the guild as a whole.

I fel very ashamed of myself tonight and only because I should have shut the hell up and just let him have the piece.

Time to let it go

Yup, this will be my last post about stepping down, it has been 2 days and so far only my closest friends have said anything, a pool of people smaller in numbers than one hand of fingers.

Yes I am being very self centered, and perhaps idealistic, in hoping that my guild mates would say something, anything to show their support or dissent at the decision.

This leads me to be torn as to the motives behind the lack of chatter, and as I have been reminded so vehemently the last couple of days “ASS / U / ME” is the mother of all cock ups. So I am not even going to go into my theories suffice it to say I am feeling lost in the guild as though I should not be there.

I don’t know where I stand with anyone in the guild now and I think that scares me more than anything else. The last three years I have spent knowing my place and knowing where I fit in, now I am not sure if I am even supposed to be stay in the guild after the way it all went down?

Do guild leaders stay in the guild they step down from if they do it for negative reasons and not just getting too busy in real life reasons? Have others felt this sense of dismemberment from the people?

I am too scared to message people, as I don’t know who are the ones who dislike me, I have had no one actually talk to me since Sunday, and so I am not sure what to do, i didn’t really speak on vents last night or in raid very much as I had no idea what to say. I am second guessing everything about me even being there, do people even give a crap if I am there or not? Would they prefer I wasn’t? Do they have me on mute on vents – which would explain why people sometimes never answer me?

Yeah, defiantely time to let it go. I won’t be posting about this again as there is now nothing to say, i will see how things go once everything has settled down. Maybe I am just being ultra paranoid – or maybe I am right on the money, either way a few weeks from now I will have a better idea…I hope.

Extrapolation

So to expand on my previous post, I have stepped down as guild leader for my guild and requested I be treated as a raiding member of the guild.

I had believed, stupidly, it would seem that the guild was doing really well, that we were all getting along and were being mates. How wrong was I?

If people want to bitch about their guild leader, it is perhaps time you find another guild, or god forbid you talk to them about your concerns.

I cannot believe that people I considered friends have been backstabbing but that is the story, so I will not continue to put myself in the position to cop a flogging.

I am so hurt that I have found out, perhaps remaining oblivious would be better, I have not yet decided.

My future with the guild is undecided as I am currently far too clouded by betrayal and hurt to think all that cleat, so before doing anything too rash I will just sit back, raid and not do anything that will jeopardize my raiding position in the guild. After all I have the same shot at being booted now :)

I spent most of yesterday crying about this entire thing so I am pretty sure stepping down is the best thing I could have done, I now just have to work out who my friends actually are and how much crap was spun to the other officers and therefore to me….Chinese fucking whispers like fucking 2 year old little tards…..

Too depressed at the moment, may not be posting for a while….
