The Angry Guild Leader

I'm the guild leader, and I'm pissed. Read what possibly goes on in your guild leader's mind. I shoot the truth, and I shoot it straight. If you can't handle it, then My Little Pony Online is taking beta applications.

 Long ago I made my predictions about the changes that would be coming in WOW. I just didn’t think that it would come so fast. For those of you who don’t remember, I stated that within a year, because of the changes being made out of fear or competition, you will not recognize this game. I wouldn’t be surprised if some people were dizzy with all of the changes coming into play. Finally, however, there is one that I agree with

Players will now be able to trade soulbound items with other raid or group members that were eligible for the loot. This system will work like the Item Buy Back system and allow 2 hours for players to trade an item after it has been looted. Players who choose to enchant or add gems to the item will get one last confirmation before losing the ability to trade the item.

This is a great change for both sides. For Blizzard, this helps in not having to pay GMs to deal with every mis-loot that happens in a raid, and for the players, the problem is easily solved on the spot. Even within our guild, there are times when people mistakenly choose a piece and then wish to give it to someone else, and now they can!


72 Hour Suspension for Exodus

When US guild Exodus received the achievement Alone in the Darkness for their killing of Yogg-Saron without keepers, they apparently used an exploit. While there had already been accusations of this, I take anything within the WOW community lightly until I see otherwise. There will always be some jealous punk somewhere crying foul when you do something that they can’t. There’s a new thread in our realm forums every day about the account I hacked last week, or the person who was removed from our guild without reason (of course in their eyes), or our progress. This time, in the case of Exodus, it just so happens that it was true.

What is an exploit can be debated until the cows come home. This goes back to standing behind the fence on Mandy, and I am sure farther. But that’s the first time I can remember an entire guild being suspended or banned. My thought on this is that they were clever and used a game mechanic against the boss. Certainly it wasn’t the way it was intended, but this being the case, it was in Blizzard’s job to fix the programming error. While I don’t believe in cheating within the game, there is a gray area between when it’s a programming error or all out cheating. This IS a game mechanic, whether intended or not, and I find it ridiculous that Blizzard would punish a guild for THEIR mistake. Kobyashi Maru anyone? That being said, I don’t think the kill should count, especially by any record keeping standard.
