Problem Solved.

So today one of my ex-guildmates completely flipped her lid, made dozens of ludicrous accusations against my sister, and dragged the guildmaster and her husband into the drama.

What really happened is this, the stupid, fat, and ugly ex-boyfriend of the former guildie broke up with the guildie and tried unsuccessfully to woo my sister for the last 2 months. When she finally got it through his thick skull that he had no chance with her, he went to his ex-girlfriend and told her that he was sorry, that he wanted to come back, and that he was tricked into leaving her by my sister. So pretty much a case of trying to shop around on the ladies. The problem is, the stupid git of an ex-guildie believed his bullshit. She launched into dozens of ridiculous and untrue accusations, ranging from that my sister broke them up on purpose to that my sister and I aren’t really siblings. The part that pissed my sister off the most is that in response to these accusations they removed *my* officer status and removed *my* ability to moderate the website. The part that pissed me off the most is that a) the psycho ex-guildie started throwing these accusations about without ever bothering to learn my sister’s side of the story, and that b) the GM believed her and then tried to play it off as being neutral and was shocked that I was upset. Fuck that, you don’t get to fuck with family and expect a nice reply. You declare war on my family, you get the nukes. We both wished the guild well and dropped guild on all our toons. Immediately whispers flooded in begging us not to go, and to come back, but screw that. After months of seeing our effort towards the guild, of being around us, of talking to us and seeing how we operate, if after all that the only conclusion you can come to is that you need to drag my sister through the mud “to sort things out”, then fuck you. You’re not a friend and you never were.

On the bright side, we are now free of their fail. We are browsing new guilds and are being much more selective this time. We don’t want to wind up in another guild that views wiping for hours as an accomplishment. We’ll probably try out a couple guilds a few days at a time and find the best fit for us. After spending the last few months settling for half an equation, we’re going to make sure that we find one that is both friendly and competent. We know they’re out there and we’ll take the time to find them. No more jumping into the first guild that throws an invite. We’re going to find one that feels right AND can down a 5-man, maybe even raid on occasion. I think we deserve that much out of our gaming experience.

  1. That was probably for the best, although what an ugly and dramatic way to have to go. I’ve been following your adventures with this guild from the start and … well, there was only one way it could end.

    If you’re looking to move servers, I could offer suggestions, and even extend guild invites if you wanted to roll alts to check things out. Nice people like you who not only know what they are doing but are willing to help out others are valued members where I am. 🙂

    • Thank you for your support. I’m not sure we’d be interested in the expense of moving servers again (we’re pretty attached to our heirlooms so we’d have to pay to have them moved), but if we do go that route, we’ll certainly look you up.

      Yes, the whole thing was pure attention whoring and drama-mongering and it left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. The two of us ended up feeling very betrayed, not just by the woman throwing the accusations, but by the GM and the few others who believed them.

      I’m not really sure what reaction the GM was expecting out of her actions, or even why she felt she had the right to pass judgments or hand down punishments for things that, even if they weren’t bullshit, were not in any way related to guild affairs. Regardless, I didn’t feel comfortable staying in the guild and neither did my sister, so we had to leave regardless of what she decided to do or not do.

      At any rate, we’re auditioning guilds now. Our first one seems to be much more on top of things, but not overly friendly. Not mean, mind you, just not a warm, friendly atmosphere. We’re hoping that maybe the ice will break as we become better known, but we’re still looking, too. We have 2-3 others on our radar that we want to try out before making any final decisions.
