Staying Put

Posted in General with tags , , , on July 28, 2009 by rocklawthepally

I was accepted into another guild after a two week wait and some jerkish behaviour by their GM.  Her sense of humour did not amuse me.  I told them to go pound sand.  I’m sticking it out with my friends.  How well we’ll do, I have no idea.

Venturing into Naxx 10 with my mage tonight :)

From Wired.  I chuckled :)

Snippet:

“I can’t tell you how pissed off I am. I keep giving the extras simple instructions for the final battle scene: When Kel’Thuzad raises his staff, run left. When he raises his orb, run right. That’s all there is to it, but every time we shoot, a bunch of extras run the wrong way, right into the pyrotechnics. Every time! We must have tried shooting the scene two dozen times and someone always screws it up. Worse yet, we keep having to put shooting on hold while they get their armor repaired.”

Guild Disintegration

So my guild is falling apart.  There are a few core members that are gonna stick it out no matter what, but most folks that want to raid have either left or are planning to leave.  I fall into the latter category.

I’ve been asked to audition via a 5-healer 25 man Naxx run tomorrow, which for me will pose no problems as long as the other healers do not suck.  Once that’s done and if I am accepted, I’ll be in a 25-man Ulduar guild that is working on the General.  I look forward to progression again, although I will miss my mates in In Exile.  My alts will stay for the time being, I think.

Drama Llama ftl.  I’m not happy about this change, but it needs to be done.  We simply do not have the numbers to put together even a 10-man Ulduar at this point.  It’s so bad that I’m using my mage to get the Dungeon .5 set – how lame is that?  Fun, yes, but totally pointless.  Doing it only to soak up time.

For my peeps in In Exile, I love you all and will miss you, but sturdy Rocklaw will still be around on Malfurion and is just a /w away.
