I was in a rp guild somewhat like that, but our guild leader would "summon us" to a random location, then line us up like in a army and walk back and forth "yelling" at our faces and calling us pathetic worms and such
It was our weekly "event", we had to show up at 9 in the morning, server time each tuesday or else he would kick people who are online and not attending the event
Oh and kind of a plot twist, but from our forums we found out he was into gay bdsm stuff. Or so were the rumors and of course he denied it. So he might have been jacking off while yelling at us
It was far back during TBC and early WOTLK anyway.

I was in a guild ran by a girl
She was the only one able to change members descriptions, so she was putting "<3" (hearths) on members she liked the most.
More hearths meaning better chance to raid with her, guild runs I mean.
Basically each day was random guildies she gathered trying to stuck up to her for more hearths, gifting her materials, gold, helping her farm, and generally talking to her about anything. Just her.
Whenever she appeared online chat would burst into guildies asking her how was her day, does she need anything etc.
Whenever she was offline chat was dead. No one even talked to eachother. Just her.
I wanted the most hearths.
She disbanded the guild after a months or so after people with less hearths started complaining when there was no room to raid with everyone
Basically it was "I thought you loved me, I gifted you so many things and now you don't wanna raid together" and stuff like that. It was like 15~ people complaining and we were around 30-40 active members
We don't even have a Rogue. They're just difficult to find, especially one who knows what they're doing.
I'm tempted to reroll Monk for Legion since they're the least played class in the game right now.
The first time someone told me whalecum was in 2005 when WoW had launched in the EU and I left my small casual guild to join a top raiding one
That's still a thing?
sorry i was in a top 5 worldwide guild in a much better game from 1999-2006

I pugged a Naxx run in WotLK and there was this russian guy who I friended. This guy was on literally 16 hours a day just cooking and shit for raids. I asked how he managed to play all the time one day on vent.
>i have good russian money. Father was extremely wealthy business man before we moved to america. We got in car crash and my father died. My stepmother is okay with me not working because of my inheritance.. I just stay at home and watch the american tv. Sopranos is good.

Regardless, they cared about every single person and had the best guild master you could possibly imagine (the guy who straight up asked about anime)

i was going to suggest you play a better MMO, then i realized there are no MMOs worth playing anymore. shroud of the avatar is shaping up to be a new ultima online which is great, but it's still in alpha so anything could easily change.

I have no faith in love or mankind.
no idea what shards online is, shroud of the avatar is spearheaded by richard garriott, and my stupid friend who backed them and got alpha access has a playable copy now.
as i said, so FAR it looks a lot like ultima online with a lot of the same mechanics, but there's still a long way to go. i won't get hyped until it's released and confirmed to not be gutted and casualized.
for other old UOfags, there is a rumor that imanewbie is coming back for shroud of the avatar

FOR WHAT PURPOSE
Druids didn't fight other druids. I think it started because a battle between druids could go on forever in vanilla because you did nearly no damage and it was pretty easy to just run away in travel form.
>You arent allowed to talk about past experiences and can only talk about what happened today
Sorry if you are too young to remember but WoW is an 11 year old game so people have memories of playing it before you were born.

the point is that WoW is a bad game that is shameful and cringey to play.

everquest, ultima online, dark age of camelot, meridian 59, anarchy online, asheron's call.... basically every single pre-WoW MMO was better. The ONLY good thing I can say about WoW is that the world PVP was great simply because of the sheer amount of people everywhere when the game launched, which isn't really complimenting any of WoW's mechanics.
>reject a random guild invite
>get another from the same person almost immediately afterwards
>no words, only invites
That shit happened to too many.
>yfw the girl you fall in love with and fuck your guild up for is actually a man rping
Makes me sad to see someone like this. Me and my best IRL friend played arenas. I actually taught him how to PvP as we didn't know each other in Vanilla.
In Burning Crusade we got multiple Gladiators and then we played into Wrath.
I went to College and he became a drug addict and I haven't ever heard from him again.
>Feels really fucking bad man.
>I play on Darkspear/Burning Blade/Hellscream/Tichondrius
>not seeing how it's cringey and embarrassing to play a game dumbed down to the point where you can just pay money for a max level character if you don't want to expend effort leveling up
even during vanilla, ragnaros was first killed less than 6 fucking months after the game came out. in everquest, guilds were still leveling and gearing people up for raids 1 year after launch, because MMOs of that time weren't extremely easy spoonfeeding games.
Playing WoW instead of over a dozen better options during vanilla, or god forbid, playing today, is completely fucking embarrassing.
I once accepted such a random invite and asked them what the fuck this is about and THEN they asked me if I want to play with them and they are an upstarting guild etc. I suspect they all are just kids and think this is how guilds are made.
>grats on easy shit like Duelicious and Level 10
Who /mutiny/ here?
I was once a healer for a raiding guild's b-team that was growing frustrated with the guild leader constantly picking up our best players for the A team stagnating progression.
There was debate about leaving, but then I got kicked because some bitch the guild leader wanted to fuck didn't like me having conversations in trade chat. She claimed we were "becoming serious" and that I was ruining their image.
whispered the leader "I won the game" right before everyone left the guild en mass to a new one that had a council system since the leader didn't raid.
>oh guys i gotta go sorry, the wife says its my turn to watch our kid. Finish the raid without me ;)
Fuck that. Best guild leaders are always 20 something guys in college with shit grades so all they did was play WoW
>playing during vanilla
>go outside orgrimmar in the middle of the night
>2 skilled mages dueling, both using engineering
>they repeat this most nights
I could sit and watch them for hours.
While I agree that WoW is cringey shit, you are a lying sack of shit.
Molten Core wasn't even available at launch, and when it was available it didn't get cleared for a long time after because Majordomo was "bugged" and unbeatable. I put bugged in quotations because it was just blizzard cockblocking raid guilds that were going too fast.

I blame WoW for losing my passion to live. Every day was wonderful while I played the game from early vanilla to the start of Cata, but after I stopped playing I felt like I lost something. Now I can't get back that sense of wonder I experienced back then and the game has changed too much for me to wanna go back.
Most guilds in MMOs are like that nowadays.
I think what happened is that guilds stopped being an entirely social thing. Developers started adding guild reward / rep shit, and people just randomly started sending out automated g invites, because they wanted the rep reward shit, not the socializing aspect of a guild.
These people who end up joining aren't friends; they're just affiliated strangers. I remember when people found a guild by playing the game. You'd be invited to one after doing a dungeon, or something. Or you might help someone out in general chat who was asking for help, and you / they would inv you to their guild in return for help. Stuff like this.
Players aren't seen as potential friends or allies anymore -- they're just a commodity.
I don't have anything against it, I just wasn't used to that shit happening to that degree, and I mean like 6+ people saying it EVERYTIME something happens.
I played and socialized a fuckton during BC/Wrath as well, so fuck yourselves.
To be honest this was back when 4chan was 80% bait and trolling was seen as a "good" thing. I just happened to be a part of the meme and found it fun to fuck with people in trade. Had a lot of trade buddies and we'd start all kinds of conversations in trade that would snowball.
It was oddly a lot like /v/.
No one complained until that girl showed up.
Nah man a B team is alternative raid group for people who can't meet A-teams schedule. It was created by officers who could only raid later. unfortunately the best players have no lives and are open to more time slots, which the guild leader abused when B team was surpassing A team.
Maybe throwing all your trash into a second team is how the guilds you've been in did it, but in this case that wasn't the system that was established.
Would you have preferred get wreckt nigga? I believe I was in a heated conversation with him prior, arguing that I didn't deserve to be kicked.
The guy fagged out and accused me of being arrogant and thinking I could manipulate him or some shit.

This is why they should have made classic servers that went through the content patches accordingly, and fully reset six months to a year after the last patch.
Even on shitty private servers that emulate classic, you have people getting together and helping each other just because the world is engaging, you feel like it's the right thing to do. That's with the limited amount of people they have, with millions more it would be 2005 all over again. There's no hope now, though, the WoW team is spiraling out of control and won't be around much longer.
>one guy in the guild is an unbearable piece of shit
>everyone has to suck it up and deal with his constant bullshit with a smile because the guild is an easy access point into raiding and offers useful services that other guilds usually don't bother with
>I'd use The Force to redirect piss from urinals into my face while also choking myself with it!
>everyone has to be like "haha" to this type of shit
I swear to GOD the second I get a slot in another raiding guild I am SO out.
I had a real life friend who macro'd his coldblood so that his undead rogue would yell "Chidori!" when he used it.
Our guild leader was tryign to get us to progress in aq40 but the guild were being bitches because they didnt like wiping on stuff and wanted some time off. So our guild leader said any guildies that are online and not in the raid will be kicked. Had happened before and i had no problem with it but this time my friend who was loading wow to his other friend to try and get him into the game got kicked because he was online but not i the raid. The guild leader wouldnt invite him back so i left. me and my friend were both rogues so that was 2 of the top rogues gone. then the class leader of the rogues exploded on the guild master and he got gkicked and people started leaving en mass.
I liked our guild leader because he kept all the idiots together but he started getting carried away.
That guild was like a bad relationship with a beautiful woman. You don't want to leave it but once you do it felt great.
Why, Guilds are a great system, if used for consistent group content, such as raids, or for a group of friends to keep track of each other better.
Just because faggots like you make it bad, doesn't make it bad.
I don't know if it was Naruto exactly since I never watched the damn thing, all I know is that it was some anime sounding shit macro'd into Empower Rune Weapon, and Dancing rune Weapon because Blood DKs during the time were the retard's prime choice.
You probably don't believe me but it happened anon
HA HA TIME FOR NOSTALGIA
Somewhere out there in the vast nothingness of space...
Somewhere far away in space and time..
Staring upwards at the gleaming stars in the obsidian sky
We're marooned on a small island,
In an endless sea,
Confined to a tiny spit of sand,
Unable to escape
Girl I met in wow used me to kek her boyfriend.
Then used her boyfriend to kek me.
And then kek'd us both with a third guy.
Spent two years obsessing over her.
What a gullible fuck I was back then.

It was supposed to be a role for experienced guildmembers to help and guide other people who played the same class.
Of course, it was turned into a petty power position for selfwanking scum, because you could just google the fotm cookie cutter build in 10 seconds anyway.
Can't give what you want me, baby Just let it go

It's fun watching that shit happen when you're not personally involved.
The moral here is to never have a girl in a guild. Their very presence will ruin everything eventually whether intended or not.

Lest we forget
What am I missing?
Ashran died with mercenary mode. Horde literally being carried by ally players queuing as keks. Ally literally impossible to win 9 out of 10 times.
It used to be all backwards. Ally shat on horde in zerg feasts like AV and IoC and lose in rest of bgs. Now it's 70% win ratio on all bgs and close to none on av and ioc.
Azshara. The most beautiful and tranquil zone in the game. Not much content wise in there, but it was atmospheric as hell.
I've never really been into MMOs, but I always thought being in a really good guild would make it something special. It's always fun reading stories about fun guild times. Recently I started playing
TORbut it all seems so single-player focused. Not much reason to party up during the regular game. It's a little lonely.
I do have a group of online friends that I've known for over 10 years now that still chats regularly, but we never had that actual gaming experience short of a brief stint dicking around in the Digimon MMO a few years back.

no, he's right, you should get off of 4chan and spend less time talking to teenagers who have no social skills because seriously believing that "fuck off" is a suitable thing to say the first time you see someone is a sure sign that your brain is headed in the absolute wrong direction
it's not about a "hugbox", you can be perfectly offensive without spitting pointless vulgarity in someone's eyes the second you see them

I said Cata last because it didn't create a new atmosphere, it just adjusted old ones. I don't mind the adjusted zones, looking past my nostalgia I feel they flow better and have more direction to them.
On top of that, the new zones (except Hyjal) were bland to me. I just didn't care what was happening.
Remember that one time you were stuck as shit on a quest and you randomly encountered some nice guy who stuck with you and helped you out for fucking HOURS?
I remember. It was on Thousand Needles.
I still remember the guy's name and how when he quit playing he actually bothered to send me a mail explaining his situation and how he had to go to Boot Camp.
Vezniak, bro, if you're here: thanks for providing me with one of the best laughs in my entire life ;_;7
the music will always be good. some of the cataclysm 'remasters' of old music were great.
MUS_Westfall_GU01,2,3,4 and 5 are all good, each having different elements. it was always nice to be slightly caught off guard with a new track that you thought you'd heard before, but turned out to be entirely new.
>Used to play WoW back during Vanilla/TBC
>Never got into raiding, but loved AV/WSG with my Combat Rogue (yes, for PvP)
>Used to spend time when not in PvP just roaming zones, and helping lowbies who might have pulled too many mobs
>Would freak out Alliance players by appearing right next to them while they were question (PvP server), but never actually kill them
>Solo ran people spamming LFG chat through SFK when bored
The raiding thing while cool in theory, just never did it for me. Maybe it's low level autism, but I just like wondering around and interacting with completely nobodies.
Most common guild experiences I witnessed over a decade of bothering with this shitty game.
>This one guy constantly complaining about boredom and lack of events while doing jack shit himself
>That's every casual/pvp guild ever
>Guild seems to be okay, few nice friendly people.
>Then this one wild faggot/whore appears constantly looking for attention
>Turns out he/she is some kind of friend to leader and everyone has to tolerate his/her stupid shit.
>one day leader or officer asks me why am I ignoring this one annoying cunt that's a friend of his.

>Guys are total bros and create very strong community, no matter if it's pve or pvp.
>We all have great time together.
>One day the private server I'm talking about just dies and it all goes to shit.
>We all play lol/hs together to this day.
Honestly private servers have best communities nowadays cuz of the cross-realm cancer on global servers. Also NA is slightly better than EU. Language barrier makes it very awkward for many nerds out there.
Some of the Cata music was surprisingly underrated.
>about 4 people in the "inner circle", just wanting attention
>the rest is jerking off to them, wanting to join the inner circle
>says something, no one responds
>one the the guys in the inner circle says something like "i didn't get my drop"
>over 10 people responding to him
Honestly I haven't even seen most cata zones which is a shame since they've changed so much
I think it was cata when everyone realized that it's easier to just grab heirlooms and do bgs till 80.
>somebody writes "*glomps*"
>taking your friends to wall hop into Hyjal pre-Cata
Loved that shit. A friend and I were both nages and we jumped off the world tree and popped slow fall. We eventually landed in Tanaris.
Just a few more million sub drops and Blizzard will open a vanilla server
I've been waiting for almost 7 years now
I meant dungeons not bgs.
Vanilla on private servers has to be shittiest wow experience there is. Only reason why we tolerated this cluster fuck is because it was a new thing back then. Plus interactions were forced as you couldn't do shit alone, including leveling. TBC is where it's at for pve and wotlk for pvp when it comes to private servers.
>Giving dungeon runs to random low levels
I'm the same. I'd rather help low level people than spend all my time doing top-level content. I used to host little games in Runescape where I would give a bunch of money and armor to free to play people.
Quick post your favourite race and give us a short reason why you think it's the best one.
Night Elf: Because I'm a tall bastard irl and like to play druids. Didn't pick tauren because furries yo.
>guild master is a 50 year old woman
Hello, I am the ret
I am the retribution paladin, maybe you have heard of me??
I am the one who is doing the melee dps on you.
Or sometimes also, the monster - but that is hard, because several people do not like it when I do that.
Sometimes I am said to "Hey yous, you ret. Get in the "BACK AND TOSSA LE HEALZ"
>join guild randomly when first started playing wow because some guy was spamming invites
>6 months later you, the guild leader and like 5 other guys are all bros and even though the guild went from like 50 people down to a dozen it's pretty awesome
Funny how that works out sometimes. Miss those douchebags.
Human because GARITHOS DID NOTHING WRONG
>the old mature guild leaders
they were the fucking best. i remember once someone had a massive rant about how he hadn't been able to sleep due to his gaming and his boss was picking him up on it (despite the fact it was a casual guild and nobody would have kicked him for not playing) and the leader just paused and calmly moved on with the rest of the run.
>group up with a guy
>then more guys join the group

That was my first piece of gold

>she's told me little about him since she's aware it's not something I want to hear about

>I ask her to make a choice- stay with him, or to be with me
>point out that I'm the one who's actually supported her during stressful shit in her life, the anxiety being just one of those things
she chooses to stay with him, but we fuck in spite of that a few more times before saying we can't do it anymore
>she got sick recently, and I was there to do shit for her to help her get better- tea, cough syrup, etc
now he's there, maybe helping out, maybe being shitty and pressing her for sex, I don't know
he'll be with her for 2 weeks, and I just saw her briefly log in. didn't say anything to her and was on my alt, so she probably wasn't aware I was around ingame
I'm crazy about her and I don't know what to do anymore
>tfw making the pilgrimage to Stormwind as a Night Elf
I just don't see how people have the time anymore.
Whats sad is that if I could have froze my life in late 2005 when all I did was play wow I would be happy for the rest of my years.
RIP my imba ass rogue. RIP my internet friends
>TFW you were this one sociopathic bastard that was constantly ninja looting, stealing from gbanks and causing drama/gathering hooks on people to manipulate them in game.
>TFW Very often it took people years to see through my thinly veiled plans and I had to change nicknames/realms few times
>TFW I was so fucked up that I used to own guilds as a gleader and shitpost on my own character as another character just to trick people into giving me money to create new guild and donate gold to me towards new guild tabs.
>MFW I was only 13 years old at that point.
Tbh though I was a fucking uberhuman back then, at the same time I used my wit and intelligence to troll people in a video game. It got to the point where my brain felt dizzy because I was pretending to be 15 different people at once.

Funny you should say that, since she herself told me that
I shouldn't let myself suffer like I am, and she encouraged me to find someone to "make her jealous" with.
>get some advice from my partners at work
>tell me not to say anything, to let her see that I'm the better choice

>tfw played bc wotlk cata and wod
>tfw it was always the same
run things with retards, find a guild, join guild, bond with these people while raiding, glad you finally don't have to run things with retards anymore
literally all that has changed is that finding retards is faster and easier
also my guildleader was always a paladin for some reason, and I switched guild every xpac

i was scared that he duped it or something but i never heard anything from it
SWTOR is better than WoW right now
Better story, more fun combat, better and friendlier people
Deal with it, plebians
>tfw havnt touched my QT 3.14 night elf female druid since 3 weeks after WoD came out
I did that to level with a friend that was Human, with my first character. It was a nice adventure.
She's insane anon. Stringing you along gets her off. Bitch is a succubus. Drop her immediately and move on. All signs point to serious emotional issues.
Unless you enjoy being keked.
It was pretty good desu. We even had role and/or class related talk channels in wow chat so people could quickly comment or ask questions in a chat channel outside of vent while other stuff was going on. It also built up a sense of community among the players of a class in the channel.
>that class bantz in the private wow channel during the raid.
I remember my class leader was really chill and he would talk about what sort of tings the guild is shooting for and what the guild master wanted done this week to help the raid etc, as well as have everyone talk about what sort of weapons they wanted to get for their character and tips and tricks on how to do better.

You're an idiot, give a woman an inch and they'll use you forever, and then drop you when she doesn't need you for emotional support anymore. Do you know how many stories people have that are exactly like yours?
She doesn't love you, and the only constant variable of her shitty past relationships is herself. Dump her and find someone better, which shouldn't be too hard.
looks fantastic in about any class or gear
wish I found better transmog for weapons though before i started playing my spriest

You are telling me frame spikes out the fucking ass is fun combat? I have a high end rig and can literally not even play warzones without dropping to 20-30 frames. It's all over the forums, you can ask anyone this game isn't optomized for shit and makes for a terrible experience. Even on the lowest settings it still has frame drops. If you don't believe me, hit the O(social) button twice and your game will freeze. The game is fucking broken and needs a new engine for it to be good. It is mostly unplayable in it's current state

Honestly if final fantasy wasn't weab pandering i'd play it, but the trial felt absolutely awful.

I moved to backwoods and convinced my wife to open a small agency where you pay your bills for a small fee without having to go on post office where you would have to pay more. While most young to middle aged people pay for everything via Internet the older folks still use traditional methods. Then I managed to convince her to keep old folks cash and spend it on opening a new car repair shop. It was a slow process and we were making sure that we still transfer the cash for bills that would be quickly exposed if they weren't paid (electricity for example). It took a year for people to actually realize but it was too late at this point. My wife got in trouble but since the jurisdiction system is a complete joke she avoided sentence and was forced to pay those bills back over time since liquefying our properties wouldn't be enough to pay it all back. Thankfully we knew that most of these old people will pass before we even have to pay and we saved around $100 000 on that repair shop.
By all means, keep sleeping with her to your heart's content. But that particular anon was looking for a loving relationship, and it's clear he isn't going to get that ever.

What are your specs? I cannot for the life of me run this game smooth at all. I haven't a fucking clue why. My specs are literally top tier and I can run any game out right now at 60 fps, 1080p, it just doesn't make any sense why I can't run this shitty mmo on anything better than low settings
Level 5 alts. Each one takes literally 48 hours with heirlooms, maybe less if u're tank/healer.
Literally all you have to do is send your followers on missions and do cata 25man hc raids every week. You'll end up making around 200k gold on 6 chars every month.
You know you guys can play Nostalrius right
It's completely blizzlike
1. Make several characters and do a shitload of quests and dailies.
2. Make several characters and farm every gathering profession, make bank by becoming neet and undercutting everyone by like 20%.
3. Be a girl.
4. Become important enough in your guild that they will use guild bank dosh to keep you raiding.
5. Get lucky and find something worth a shit ton of gold.
6. Raid hardcore, do LFR, and dungeon spam all day for that sweet gold.
7. Do all of the above and have 3-4 characters gold capped. Never worry about WoW time again.
First off just want to say that I'm blown away by the support you've all been giving me, even if I'm just going to respond to this one post and elaborate a bit on the situation.
>I'll give her the benefit of the doubt and say she might not doing it deliberately, but it's not particularly healthy.
This is the thing. She feels shitty because I feel shitty about being used like I was. Looking back on what's happened, she's told me she's aware that she's been selfish, and she hates herself for screwing things up between us. In fact, she's told me she's waiting for the day that I "wake up and resent her" for what she's done to me, and she says it with a lot of genuine looking sadness.
We were happy as friends, but when we crossed the line, everything changed.
