How not to impress your new Officers

Strange Tidbit of the Day: you are rarely more than 6 feet away from a spider.

Guild trying to get 2 kara runs off the ground on a wednesday night. After some swapping and shuffling, one solid team is formed.

The other team is left looking for 1 more player.

Cant find anybody. Not in the guild, not on friend's lists, not on /who, not on LFM.

So we resort to General spam in Shatt City.

First response..."tell me the names of each player in the raid or i'm not joining".

Buh bye.

Second response...level 67.

Yeah, why dont you give me your business card and i'll have my people call your people.

Third response..."let me check with my guild.......sorry, i'm not allowed"


New member of the guild, joined a few days ago, logs in. 20 minutes after raid start time.

Better late than never, i suppose, lets go.

Everybody enable in-game voice chat, so I can explain the plan for the night, namely "Dragons Dragons Dragons", tonight's Nightbane and Netherspite night.

Looking at the little chat interface, i see the guy's got no voice enabled.

Says he has no sound card. Also, never been to Kara before.

Sorry, guild policy, gotta have in-game voice capability to listen to instructions. Also guild policy to meet minimum gear requirements for Kara. We can overlook the gear, since the other 9 can carry the load, but the speakers, we really can't do that on a progression night against Netherspite.

New Guy explodes. Totally snaps and begins whisper fight with the GM. On and on about how he might as well leave. KK, don't let the door hit you in the @ss. Three days in a new guild and you snap on your GM over a raid spot? Meh.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that that's probably not the best way to make a good impression and make your Officers want to invite you to future raids.

Sadly, no T1 run, no shot at Netherspite. T2 cleared through Shade, positioning themselves for the Guild First Netherspite downing.

Maybe I should put a 25-man run on the schedule for Monday to sabotage their efforts.

I don't understand that myself. I mean what President Carter- era PC is this person using that has no onboard audio? Ok its broke.. gotcha.. no speakers? No headphones? are you kidding me?

Yeah he's dead weight.. good to loose that guy now b4 you're in SSC or something complicated like vashj fight and goombah has no idea what to do and you spend 20% of raidtime TYPING IT ALL OUT for him. hahaha.. Yeah that'd be funny.
