Single Abstract Noun

I just wanted to put a shout out to all the SAN people.

I have decided to try my hand at some RP, so I may started putting up some posts about my widdle warlock, they potentially will suck and be horrible, but hey it will give you a laugh no doubt 😀

My toon is dragonray and she is a little warlock.

I love this post 🙂 had to link it!!

Gear Score – LOL

I think I have it figured out, you can’t actually kill Sindy can you? It’s all a big joke, she is immortal or indestructible or something?

There are no guilds that have actually killed her, it is all a big play by Blizzard to make people think she HAS been killed!! All the blogs I have been reading are like Blizz employees bullshitting!!

Yeah well I am allowed to dream right 😀 eheheh

We spent all night wiping on her again, we were getting her to below 10% for I would say half the shots we had, but we just kept losing it in phase 3. People just seem unable to realise they are going to be tombed and then bam 5 people cop it…There must be a better way. We keep having the shitty luck of 2 healers getting done in quick succession, so one is just coming out whilst another is getting tombed.

Anyway we just could not get it happening. The last attempt we had we did much better in controlling the fight ie debuff resetting and people running out when being tombed etc, but we were just ran out of time to try again.

Perhaps Monday will be the night we get it happening….perhaps Monday….

So close on Sindragosa…

You know when you have one of those dreams and you feel like you are stuck in jelly or underwater where you are moving slowly and something big horrible and ugly is chasing you….that was tonight for me….

We got Sindy to 8% on one attempt and quite a few below 15%, but it was like we could see the problem as it was happening, but there was nothing you could do about it.

Just little things like people not realising they were the tomb in the third phase, or we just didn’t move quick enough etc.

It was a bloody good night of work on her though considering how low we got her, it was well worth the effort, as we had never really seen phase 3 for more than the second tomb.

Tomorrow I think we may have her number…my fingers are crossed, so are my toes and I may even plait my hair just to make sure 😀 heeheh

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.

So since I am no longer beholden to my guild in the sense of protecting their identities as their Guild leader, i am going to throw caution to the wind and I am going to update all my details so you can look up my toons and check me out 🙂 hehehe

So I am in the process of updating my toon and personal pages with all the relevant details so you guys can crituque my crappy toons and tell me how much i suck 🙂 LOL

Feel free to drop past and say hello if you see me running around 🙂

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….

yeah

I lied about being the lucky ones.

More on this later 😀

Works hard for the money

Was a fucking tough night tonight, no matter what we did we just couldn’t get it happening we spent 1.5 hours wiping on professor, wiping wiping wiping….just things going wrong all the time…it was tough, tough tough….. we did get dreamwalker done as well, however that was a 2 shot as well….just not happening tonight, I think too many people were tired to start with and that just means not enough focus….it happens, we all have those nights.

not much else to say really, but it makes you appreciate the nights when things DO go right…

I lie, there is plenty more to say, but spankypants already copped an earful from me tonight and it would be unfair to dredge up something when he was doing a stellar job trying to smooth it over 🙂

Last night before raid I was trolling a few blogs as I always do, and i noticed a theme, so many people are having trouble getting people to log on for raids because Cataclysm is coming….now I agree, it is coming – at some point, in the future, but as for when? Hell we have only just been thrown the beta opt in and from past experience, that will take at least a few months, let’s say ballpark 3….then add 2 months for the release date and actual launch etc.

So that is still a very long time to be not raiding or doing anything in game except standing around twiddling thumbs? I plan to cut raiding off once we have a confirmed release date AND after we have killed the Lich King a couple of times. I am pretty sure most of the guild would be ok with that, most of my guild though, want to see the Lich King Dead, so we are all pretty motivated to do that 😀

I have so much to do once an announcement has been made about release, I have to consider, once again what I want from the game, how to implement that with the guild and not lose people 😀 , I have to re-do the website – it is in need of a major overhaul, and the guild needs a major overhaul, and I need to toughen up as a guild leader if we stay together as a guild and move forward. The guild as it currently is, is almost in a state of perfection, yes we have shitty nights, and yes we grumble and grizzle, but we have the best group of players right now, better even than the players we had back in SSC/TK days….This group has the potential to do so much and move through content so quickly….everyone single person picks up strats so damn fast, we spend a couple of shots wiping, then you can tell when people understand the fight….I know we could be awesome…..however I digress….massive tangent there….

I would be heartbroken if we were like those other guilds struggling to get raids happening, yeah this week has been slow for us, but we have 5 people down, out of a 14 man raider base, shit happens really, and from next week everyone will be back on board anyway. We really are the lucky ones that we have found 13 other people who are just as motivated and enjoy raiding as much as each other.

I do love my guildies and I am so glad we have worked so hard to get this group to where it is. Hopefully being that we are coming into a new expansion with a great group, we won’t lose anyone and be behind the eightball. It is my fault really – every time new content comes out I move or change the guild and it sets us back, this time I am hoping everyone will stay together and we will be able to level quickly and get back into raiding really fast 😀
