Oooh look, thats me!
He's talking about me!
Tired wrote: I am in Res, have been for some time. I have many clannies who I admire and are like family to me...Because of them I stay, but recently...Damn it’s getting rough. I am so sick and tired of the same drama and bs. Listen. When the former chief of Res stepped down and —- took over (avoiding naming and shaming), things were good. Res was doing well, good sense of community and teamwork. Plus we started helping some of the lower clans with bosses, which was interesting.
Sounds about right. We are a family first, each member looking out for one another.
Tired wrote:Then all hell broke loose...*_* DS invited a bunch of ex Res, including some that have made a really bad rep for themselves on Arawn, and suddenly *boom* we’re at war with DS. Not really an issue as it’s a game and clan wars tend to be a part of that, but then stuff started going down in clan. We found out that one of our trusted leaders was selling clan gear, but despite ss and everyone knowing what went down...Chief went and protected her, she posted some bs denial statement, and it got shoved under the rug. On top of that, we have inactive old clannies getting gear out of a “transparent system” which keeps ignoring those who actually put in the effort. Kiss up or you won’t get DG basically.
We aren't at war with DS, we just aren't working with them anymore. We had a very simple, pretty chill agreement with DS.
Res gives DS 80 DL horns
and we help them kill any and all bosses they lock. Then DS invited people we kicked (and we kicked them for some pretty good reasons). Why should we help gear people we kicked? We told Liv we couldn't help them anymore as a result and moved on. DS called it a war because they started to wipe on some Snorri's and Hrung without our help and said we were being unfair for not saving them from rage and wiping...
About DG, I am confused where you are getting this from. No one who has gotten DG is a "kiss up" what so ever... In the last paragraph you praised the chief, so you know as well as I do that BigD can see right through ***.
Now maybe you will stop with the ***
Tired wrote:Meanwhile, the war with DS turned from old school lock wars and arena battles into ugly ksing, personal insults, and total immaturity. I dunno what DS has been saying, seems like they mostly ignore it, but the things our leaders have been saying, and even shouting...Our Chief says on forums that he is respectful of other clans and that Res behaves maturely...That might have been true a few months ago, but it sure as hell is not now. I’m embarrassed when we’re at Sreng or troll, bosses we don’t even need anyways, and my clannies start insulting DS. The other day our chief even brought up a personal photo in shout, using it to make a nasty comment about someone’s sexual orientation. That’s not classy.
The insults only went to those who rightfully deserved them to say nothing less. We all know what the druid ex-leader of braves did, the desert named rogue, and a warrior whose name i um... forget?
We were respectful to DS... until they decided to no longer return it.
Also we still need sreng and troll... I guess you don't want DL or EDL weps.
Tired wrote:Listen, I don’t want Res to fall apart, I want us to be strong, but with an increasing number of our decent clannies going inactive because of gear bs or drama, what we have left are some immature kids who will do whatever leaders tell them to do, a few gear selling leaders, and a lot who are too afraid to speak up and risk a demotion or losing their spot in the gear line. We complain in whispers and in band...but when it comes down to it, we are disrespecting our own clan by letting a few make us look like a— h-les to the rest of Arawn. How the hell do you- Mage in this thread as well as our chief- post on forums about how great we are when you know we’re screwed up? We need to change some things before we lose more people. Not to other clans, Unit is inactive and DS is stuck in the DL spin cycle, but to other servers and inactivity.
Oooh you mentioned me again
look BigD, Im famous
Res doesn't really have any problems, besides individuals like yourself who sneak around trying to start things up, basing your "Facts" off of rumors from individuals removed from the clan, and trying to turn family member against family member (you said res was a family).
You are no member of this family, please leave the clan :-)
Armo wrote:Idk how publicly ranting will help your clan's situation..?
You're literally worsening the situation. If it's that bad, get together with a few of your trusted clanny's who share your view and collectively bring up your concerns to the generals/chief. If they do nothing or threaten to kick or whatever (I'm assuming at this point, I have absolutely no idea what Res is like) then either leave the clan, switch server or suck it up.
Armo has worded this perfectly. This is what any clanny who actually cares about his or her fellow clanmates would do... By doing what you did "tired" all you want is attention.
Tired wrote:Cas I got a lot of respect for ya...but I and others have constantly tried to get our voices heard, and you are very well aware of how tough it is. In Res only those in leadership are allowed to have opinions...And by leadership I refer to generals and the chief. All major decisions are made behind closed doors then tacked up like the king’s decree. The rest of us shut up and follow along like good little soldiers or risk being demoted.
This isn't true what so ever... Before I was a guard (way back when... like last april
) I was in a group chat with SlyShadows and LadyJade and we would spitball ideas almost hourly (sorry Jade for my essays
), we have a brainstorming band group literally just for clansmen to put out ideas. As a clansman I started recording DL/EDL attends and it spiraled into actual policy... Clansmen can have measurable impacts, you just need to do and act instead of hide behind the curtain and rant...
Tired wrote: I am not posting here to excuse my own decisions...I am posting here of because the bs about Res being the ideal clan. When I see a new xfer to the server is interested in Res, I feel sorry for them. They have no idea what they are in for. When our chief goes into recruit mode he promises them all gear, armour, respect....(kinda makes me think of the movie Gladiator for some reason...Glory and fame if you follow orders and use your powers only to benefit clan) The same people have been getting the best gear for years now. You have no chance at pushing through the years of hierarchy unless you suck up like no tomorrow and bs your way into the chief’s good graces.
No you are posting so you can have a "clean concious" when in reality all you want is the clan run your way... You don't care about what anyone else in the clan thinks or feels, just what you want. This isn't the attidue of a true res clanmate.
Once again, please leave the clan. We really don't want you.
Tired wrote:Anyone who doesn’t believe me is welcome to look over the current wait list for dg, look at how many are inactive...How many are suck ups. EDL Offs are used as carrots to entice continued loyalty...We’re all battling against one another for seats at the gear feast. Once you’re in Res, it’s very hard to leave. I know my rep would be screwed if I left without first stripping myself naked of all gear. Over the years, quite a few have left Res. Quite a few of them were great clannies, always attending and helping. After they left though, the majority got a sh*t storm from Res. They are labeled as as backstabbing scammer by people who know they are not like that. I realize that in some cases the label holds true, but the majority of those who leave Res are not as messed up as is said.
No one on that list is inactive or a suck up. Name one who is.
The only individuals who got shamed after leaving the clan were those who left after stealing gear and went to sell it. Lindfors for example left res and we never bashed him, we get res isn't for everyone, but for those who leave the clan and turn face and used res just for gear, ya we will be angry with you.
Tired wrote:My aim in posting is to show a different side of Res than what our leaders would say.
@Big D....I did not mention it as I did not think it was relevant. I never said that people have stopped joining Res. We still have a steady influx of server xfers and etc. My point is that those joining have no idea what they are in for. We all know you are getting people to leave DS by offering near instant gear. Slap in the face to loyal Res who spent months of grinding to earn the same gear. Stop trying to make this about my identity because you want to avoid the facts.
We haven't insta-geared a single person who left DS. People are leaving DS due to a certain leader (chief counts as a leader btw) who is extremly two faced and just uses clannies until she gets what she (or maybe he) wants.
We treat them as we do any new recruit.
