not surprised I guess. With daddy doing the avast runs on Monday he is probably doing the same thing.

This is the danger we face getting good players alts come along. They can use the EPGP system to get some loot even if new, just raid a few weeks and get a decent PR, take loot and then find a new guild when their PR gets too shitty. Gala did predict this already! no problems though

So we are 2 good range dps down now.

keep up recruitment and we will keep finding replacements.

to our credit we still downed 6/14h this week even without both normal tanks and a couple of others. Daimos, jagultas and Elesthiel did very well imho - I actually found it easier to heal all of them than Alexi even though not as well geared...

IF temperies will stick around for raiding then we still have 3 mages. We also had 4 locks last night too without daddy. We are short on hunters amasingly...

yep pretty sure Alexi didn't have any specific close relationship with blacksworth that would have caused this. Blacksworth has always been completely cool with me when we have spoken recently

if more people start moving then I'd be worried but i'll have a chat with him as well when I get a chance.

the thing is that often we end up 'poaching' off other guilds without realising as well just by coincidence even though it looks like people are targeted.

I guess they just raid earlier.

i was writing this before what vorp said above. i totally agree with this:

the thing is that often we end up 'poaching' off other guilds without realising as well just by coincidence even though it looks like people are targeted.


before we scrutinize other guilds and our ex-members, i think we should remember that every one is entitled to what they want to do. it seems that if it was beneficial to the guild, we would praise them. if it was detrimental, we become somewhat like sour asses.

i personally might know the reason why these things are happening, but there is no need to elaborate as it is already over. what i detest is people finding fault with others. we seem to always, ALWAYS see the fault of others before we even think or remember about what they have brought to us.

Example:
Blacksworth and Daddytoobig have raided with us for only a month+? true. But in that month, we downed 3 bosses; Galakras, IJ, and Shamans. out of the 3, i know for a fact that the strategies and improvements they gave us were for at least 2 bosses, IJ and Shamans.


any one could argue that while that was true, if given enough time we could also down those bosses on our own. true again, but was time for or against us at that period? we were bleeding raiders, had political bullshit to wade through, and raid morale was low. they came in, MENTIONED THAT THEY WON'T BE PERMANENT, and helped us.

so who are we to scrutinize their actions, who are we to judge where they go or what they do? if anything, we should be grateful for their help, aiding us through progression.
There is no such thing as useless effort.

I cant remember them saying that they were not permanent but when I spoke to Daddy about it, there was never any issue and I think we all assumed that to be the case anyway.

When you get alts from anyone raiding with us, its safe to assume that it wont be forever and we already knew that. They did help us and their departure had nothing to do with anything else going on from my conversations with them.

Its a bit like when flashyou left. We kept on good terms and has helped us with suggestions twice now which has been good.

I'm keen to use people while we can and apply their knowledge when available.

It does bother me when people pledge themselves to a guild on a main and we help them along with gear and they just leave.

so anyway lets keep recruiting :)

Happy Bday Gala! :D

I'm afraid I wont be able to join you guys on Monday too and 2 weeks from then. Gulp! :( Got some dates mixed up and come Monday, I'll be away with my fambam and in-laws to Melbourne/KL/SG. I'll be back on the 15th but not sure if i can catch up with you guys. I can try raiding on my laptop but it's never been a good experience for me :( I may show up just to farm VPs and get coins hehe. We'll see.

So, keep it up and hope we get new playahs in the guild soonest! Have fun!!

Hey Pandas,

I know this is an unfortunate time to be doing this but I'll be taking a two month break from raiding starting tomorrow to focus on school work. I'll still be around during the day, it's just the late nights that are becoming a problem.

It's been heaps of fun raiding with you guys and girls for the past 9 months and I look forward to coming back.

Good luck with progress in the upcoming weeks and keep in touch!
