  1. You're right, no one cares what I have to say 'coz I don't have 5000+ posts right
  2. You'd still get fuss for a /gquit though. It's a tricky one, with pros and cons both sides. Yes, I'd hate to be the person who suddenly had no guild one morning, but Ben did get reasoning, if a little late, and I'm sure he could've perhaps guessed at those reasons etc especially in conjunction with this forum until a mutually beneficial time came about to discuss things. But at the same time, having been raiding with a guild for so long, and knowing how things work, the lightbulb of common sense would suggest to me that, yeah, maybe doing it in the dead of night is a good thing. But then again, I am the girl who attempted to /gquit into the shadows at 2am but got caught by the GM who saw me making a suspiciously titled post on the forum at the same time - it wasn't to be cowardly, but because as someone who was heavily involved in the organisation of the guild, I knew I'd end up with lots of whispers, maybe disrupt a raid, and not properly get to explain myself in /Guild chat. Allowing myself the time to make an essay of a post meant I could think it through and structure it how I wanted. Perhaps this works both ways. Though I don't know how Ben was told. Short answer: IMO, there is never one best way of doing stuff like this.
  3. 2x25 is a mess though. Even with Zul'Gurub if you spread it over two days it's "Which raid were you in? Which ID do you have? Where is X?"... But from the sounds of it these 25 man instances are HUGE... no chance of doing it in a night? So let's say I can make a raid Monday, Tuesday, but not Wednesday. I'll be saved to that instance, and other people will be in another raid saved to that one. Unless there's an unsaved person over the previous two days, there's no option to replace me. It's going to get very messy :'( And then there's the A-Team/B-Team aspect..
  4. Again, this thread was replied to at 5am and evidently the kick decision was made then. Mr Ben has his answers, is that not enough for you people? Stop making drama, Ben's moved onto other topics Call it cold-hearted shit if you will, but in my experience, /gkicking a member with 50+ people online (and in some cases, in the middle of a raid) leads to drama and intense lack of focus if in a raid. Instead of having a million people go "WTF?" this has been dealt with swiftly, and dealing with only those involved. (Well, + a whole forum who feel the need to sling mud at a guild, ofc)
  5. There's other guilds out there!
  6. Heh, I typed die instead of day - Freudian? Thaddius makes me cry. One of our guildies summed it up really; why the hell do Blizzard make a fight that creates so much lag, graphical lag, whatever with all the spell effects, and then make success crucial on a computer's/connection's ability to sustain itself through all this?
  7. OMG! Rllmuk's been down all die, I was suffering horrible withdrawal from the WoW forum
  8. Heh, how come you guys are so good at lining up neat and tidy for screenies? Ours are always well, lol.
  9. woooooooot!!!! Grats Revz Lovely screenie
  10. Well you don't seem to know anything about what I listed - about how lovely the people in Chimaera are, hm? You get only one side... I can't justify anything, I've only been in the guild for 7 weeks or something, so I have no answer to give - nor would I, if I could, really, what does it matter here... yes it was announced here but it was 5am and people are sleepy then. Maybe it's not the best time or place, but when is a person in their soundest judgement at 5am? No use dissecting things for a few hours when nothing changes... officers are all busy at the moment.. And we're in the middle of a 5 hour raid so, I'm guessing this isn't the sort of thing that could be handled with a quick whisper in the middle of sorting groups/tanks/targets/healing for Patchwerk. (why am I posting? Because the mind control just got resisted on Razuvious )
  11. But I couldn't live up to the legend
  12. I have a warlock, but I just didn't enjoy it so much for some reason :\ Maybe one day Actually, it was Chantinelle's imbaness that made me start a lock.
  13. So, I started a mage recently, and I'm having a blast. I specced frost, since as fire I wasn't noticing that huge difference in the numbers when it came to pure damage, and frost you get all the extra kiting ability and things like that. She dinged lvl 33 today and I'm ever so proud, my highest level alt )) But, I can't afford a mount at 40 But she pwns!! And I get to wear pretty dresses at last <3
  14. Can we stop insulting our guild now, please? It's been said already that kicking isn't a subject that's taken lightly, and damnit, I love Chimaera, so please stop throwing about all this crap about it not being a very good guild. It's a fantastic guild, full of people who help, full of people who care, full of people who all have a lot of fun together. Please stop assuming and hypothesising about things you know nothing about Can we move on now?
  15. Indeed, so why make suppositions? I don't know the story nor do I pretend to, but as therealjohnpeat has said, he's only known of a handful of /gkicks in the history of Chimaera so I doubt it was just on a whim as is being made out...
  16. Meh, everyone's all speculating and gossiping, when clearly it's the will of the guild to prevent that, what makes you think Khaz doesn't have his answers now? etc. I've only been in Chim a mere matter of weeks but I really don't like people throwing words around like 'pathetic', it makes me all defensive and stuff - you don't know the people in the guild, you don't know what's gone on here, neither do I, but can we at least show a little respect for that fact instead of jumping over every little piece of supposition and insulting a bunch of very nice people?
  17. Ok so it's one forum, where there's only a handful of Chimaera members, that still doesn't mean every little thing that happens in-guild should be broadcast to the masses. This all happened here, Ish posting means he was aware of what went on so sends a message to the forum as a whole sure, but that doesn't mean he or the officers then has to justify themselves to everybody here. We see only one side. One of Chimaera's huge benefits to me was the lack of drama, the fact that something like this is dealt with more personally helps to keep that the case... the fact that not everyone needs to know everything creates a generally less stressful atmosphere. Dissecting all this as it happens moment by moment only creates more aggro, Khaz hasn't heard anything yet about it well let's see, shall we? Ish posts at 5am. Khaz presumably kicked around that time. Khaz presumably asleep. Since Ish was clearly awake at 5am, one could suspect that he has been asleep for a fair few hours. I imagine that Khaz will be hearing more but it's him and Chimaera this involves, not everything is a conspiracy, sometimes people actually get up away from their computers And to quote again Piro, Ish said there are a number of other issues, not that I know what they are ofc, but clearly things that the rllmuk community doesn't necessarily know about?
  18. To be fair, Ish said I don't pretend to know what they are, but we don't really need to air Chimaera's dirty laundry on every forum in the world, do we? Or indeed look down upon the guild for being intolerant when, as has been highlighted, all people here see is this particular issue. :\
  19. I have a Herald of Woe! It's for bearform, rawr. I didn't ninja it or anything, it was that or a nexus :'(
  20. sprite

    Patch 2.0

    I do NOT fancy Patchwerk with the healing nerf :\
  21. sprite

    Patch 2.0

    But at least the new instances might be designed with the downranking in mind. Bringing it in before the new instances though.... ick.
  22. <rant> I realise I only arrived yesterday but... Why the ass do we need 9 raiding druids? We never really had a druid problem unless a string of coincidences (2 of us not well, 1 stuck at work one night once..) meant we were short We recruited another 2 ok, can cover the times we need more healers but yet ANOTHER 2? We have four druids on trial now! I guess they came as a joint package with the shaman but basically now we have 5 regular attendance druids + 4 on trial. From a selfish POV ofc I want to raid - that's why I joined, but it won't be the end of the world if I miss a night here or there, but I'm worried about the new guys - four of them all fighting for raidspots which don't always necessarily exist, if we're giving prio to the Wipe Addicts? :|
  23. Well, I missed Gothik last night, but the reports sound promising. With the place cleared up to him, we have tonight to really get some good time in and who knows, maybe even get him down. Four Horsemen, Sapphiron and then the Big Guy himself...
  24. I <3 Defian He had a Horde druid too and we used to play together from 30-59 PVP
  25. Why is everyone so excited about Vista? I won't touch it with a 30ft pole until it's proven stable! Roll on TBC I'm also trying to decide whether I should cancel my Wii preorder or not..hmhm.
