Ways We Part

As many of you know Three Score has now been around for over 5 years. Over this time I have seen many a players come and go. Some of them were great players, some of them were utterly awful, some were reliable, and some never showed up when you wanted them to. Of all the players that have ever been in this guild many of them became friends and enjoyed I their company. You see when you are a raider you get to know people and their personalities pretty well. You get to know what makes them tick and how to urk them. This is all part of a raiding guild and dealing with all of this is what being a Guild Master is all about. This is also why it is not for everyone.

I was not prepared though for what has happened to me recently. You see out of all those people who have ever been or came in contact with I have been friends with many of them, but never truly I guess. Having what some would call true friends in a guild makes it more complicated. You defend them without realization, you understand situations more than you would others, and sometimes you don't realize may be setting you or them for a big fall. Losing a friend over a game seems silly and pointless, and truly is when you think about it. Regardless of what happens in and outside I will always feel that this was indeed a betrayal. I don't know if I will ever come to realize it in a different light. I may think I could have done things differently trying to find a better solution, or maybe not. Did my treatment set myself up for a fall? Did I have unrealistic expectations? Do I make excuses for myself and purposely try to make them feel worse for leaving deserving or not? These are the questions I ask myself, and I will continue to until I find the answers I am seeking.

For one of the first or in fact the first I am unsure of myself and my decision in regards to this game. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later.

Enjoy your weekend, most likely no For The Horde today will try and set it up for Sunday.

  2. Since the two of us who left on august second have been gone
    3s have wiped 65+ times on Heroic LDW
    Killed LK 25 Normal ONCE with 24 wipes and didn't make it to him 2 of the weeks.
    (if someone wasn't there for WoL I know those 2 numbers could be skewed)
    So I would be willing to bet that if you
    1. Had an officer who could lead while you were gone and
    2. Gave constructive criticism and got rid of people who were bad
    3s might have killed a new boss by now.

    Gauss, Where do you think this is headed now that you have lost a second group of your beast Tank and Healer?

    You're a good person and a decent dps warrior, You need to surround yourself with a stronger officer core and get rid of that EMO-Officer-Paladin. She is making you look like a full blown idiot by supporting her when she makes a ton of shitty decisions.

  3. Gauss has shorten the raid week becasue of the end of the expansion. I believe we have killed LK at least 3-4 since the drama crew left. I would say best tank and healer is an over stretch. Sometimes people are not as good as they think they are. A tank who himself fails to listen to instuctions and many times has caused wipes which would have been kills on LDW. A healer who refuses to be in the same vent channel because he feels he is too high and mighty.

    In truth Gauss may have lost two friends and I can tell it has been very hard on him, but to the rest of the guild this is probably the best thing to ever happen. Gauss deserves better than people than will use him for his friendship and even admit it so while he is not online. So yes we may have lost two players, but it will be better for the guild in the long run.

  4. LOL neb wants to come here and tell someone they are emo? This is the same person who put a password on channels when they didn't get what they wanted? Let's not forget the wife and sister in law that refused to heal people in a raid because they didn't get their way. How classic

  5. You do realize that any guild would kill to have Gauss as their GM? It is because of his qualities and how he gives his all in everything that we are so lucky to have him. There is a reason why people leave and always want to come back and that reason is Gauss. We are better off without the two fools who used him for all they could get out of him.

  6. Say something in guild chat and everyone comes here to post. Neb do you realize how much better the guild atmosphere has been since Las, Sordoe and Xeus have been gone. You see I never had any issues with you it was just them that always made me hate logging on to raid. I think Gauss' topic awhile back about entitlement was right on the money with those ones.

    In my eyes we have just lost the people regardless of their ability, who caused enough issues with Gauss and the guild. Many times you could see him be torn because of his relationship with them. Then of course them using him for it makes it even worse. To me this is the best possible thing which could have happened and I am sure the rest of the guild completely agrees

    what I find the most entertaining is that someone who hasn't been in the guild this long still is so attached to it. Regret is an awful thing

  8. Healer and refuses to do trash, tank that can't listen, healer that expects every piece of loot, tank that tanks off other tanks, random afks, refusal to take flasks that are free. Ya I can see they will be missed. You see if they were anyone else they would have been kicked for being exactly what they are a couple of assholes.

  9. Glad they are gone. I honestly think now we can get back to doing what needs to be done rather then dealing with children. I say children for the reasons all stated above. Grow up or leave. It seems they made their choice.

  10. To be completely and utterly honest, it sounds to me like you need to get over it. Clearly this guild has some MAJOR internal issues that need to be worked out. All in all, GET OVER IT.

    The end.

  11. People tend to stand before and say something about someone they respect. This would be why people back him because they know he always serves the best interest.

    Gauss has 3 kills of LK 25 normal. We were there for 2 of them.

  13. You will soon realize that 3s has seen their fair share of "drama crews" over the last 5 years. I was part of one and can speak from experience. They will be better off seeing those people leave. I am still attached to them after being gone from the server for several months. It was home, I don't think you can find a better place as 3s was in that regard. They WILL get over it and move on, as they always do.
