Moonfire on Vaizel leadership = usual crap :-(

If you recall, one month ago, I was really excited to have found what looked like a refreshing new guild; with no profanities and no kiddies for instance...

Oh boy how wrong was I... a month later... this guild is actually the typical "core group" (aka buddies) of officers who do not tolerate any discussion or suggestions... and decide to kick people out without warning for "attitude" when I tried to explain that rolling on a "not tradeable" (bop from TG last boss) Orb as a Cleric or Shield as a Glad (officer) who never tanks when a Tank has done the whole run and organization is maybe something to avoid in the future... Asking people to not do stupid things is apparently "hardcore"... and a no no... but kicking people out on first unwritten rule offense is "ok nice and family"...

Pretty sad I wasted my first month of Aion play with those guys... most players there are actually nice people and do listen and could do well... and I'll miss those.

Thank you very much to Lancer/Lancerlot whose tantrum got me kicked when I tried to explain to him that conflicts are better resolved on Vent than in chat - Thanks a lot to Mycal, other officer who doesn't even own 1H sword and rolled on the BOP tank shield which cause me to be somewhat upset in the first place (after the 2nd time it happened in a guild run and despite numerous warnings; you can see the video online). But last but not least thanks a lot to Sinder/Lily for having kicked me out with no explanation (I had to beg later to hear some bs about attitude, first time she'd ever complained - and now lying on the aionsource.com forums to protect her little clique and sully me) after I stayed for hours waiting for some feedback on vent  (and spent time emailing unaltered screenshots) - After some prodding they did mention that being of French origin is an issue and I'm guessing probably also being from California or multiboxing is too open minded for those guys "I didn't like you since day one but nobody else was complaining" - she was basically trying to find some excuse to kick me out and finally found one... dunno why... probably some insecurities about her leadership... or just intolerance over differences...

ps: Also the things I organized with the guild (Crab Noris, Krall runs, the Leech and 2 TG runs) seems to constitute a large part of what the guild ever did as a group... ie not much with no sign, on the contrary, that more is planned any time soon - it's a "late night" guild where you're lucky if you catch 1 or 2 officers in the evening and where again nothing much happens and the people who do try top make things happen get kicked out...

Anyway, this probably makes me sound like a sour person and I guess yes I'm sour to have had high expectations, a lot of investment and see it turn to crap... and being lied to; backstabbed and wrongly accused and kicked without any due process you'd expect from a legion which claims to have high aims, pretends to have "honor" but is just a disguise and is lead ineptly.

Here are some video which hopefully explains why I was a bit not happy - but yeah, I'm an a**hole for not letting it slide: http://www.justin.tv/clip/6d2d4f6bcaec183e and http://www.justin.tv/clip/ac12f6af50cb88cc - I offered to apologize for maybe overreacting as well as shake hands with the (unrelated buddy officer) guy who rage quit and did a tantrum (if anyone ever cares I have the screenshot I sent to the guild leader on her request) - take a "warning" and pay attention to not comment and be "nice"r if I'm not nice enough... but no... just got kicked/backstabbed directly... despite full disclosure hearsay won... I suppose I should be glad.

You got crit'ed by moorea's wall of text for 200000 dmg :-)

In short - I'm pissed but I'll move on now that I put my thoughts down... My advice is to avoid hypocrite guilds who fill in the ranks but only care about their buddies... many guilds are like that but many don't pretend otherwise... and you just know you can't say anything critical of officers... I didn't know that one was like that...

You read that far and survived ? wow you deserve a cookie !




pps: to correct a few statement you may read elsewhere: I never said that anyone was stupid; specially not the cleric who I have no problem with as we just talked it over on vent and that was it - I did say that people do stupid things - doing stupid things (ie mistakes) is what everybody does from time to time (and my complaining was maybe one such thing) which is not the same as being stupid. being stupid is not helping people fix their mistakes or doing the same mistake over and over again...
