Happy Holidays

*X files music plays*
Last night on wow I told someone I was going to flatten their tires because they wanted to go to sleep instead of heal in my Kara group. This morning I woke up and I had a flat tire.
Coincidence?
Karma?
I’m not sure, but I do know that my neighbor has a back tire up on a block because I had to steal his. Wonder what he did to deserve such an unlucky hit to his Karma.

In my previous post on Monday I had mentioned that the Kara groups were reorganized to help some of the other struggling groups. My group was assigned on the forums and two of the people on the list couldn’t make the Kara runs so we subbed in two other guys (both new to my group), this put our group with five new people and five regulars. I am happy to say that my new group ran the instance fine. Everyone paid attention, learned the fights, was on time, and basically didn’t do anything stupid. We cleared through Prince but still have Netherspite and Nightbane up because it was getting late, hopefully we’ll find time to go back in there. Our run did take a little longer than normal but that’s totally understandable because we had to explain the fights to some people. To all the new guys that came, good job and thanks for coming.

When these new Kara groups were reformed some of the regular Kara runners (Ones from my group, I’m not sure about other groups) were accidently left out of the re-order. This has lead to a lot of hurt feelings and people just being pissed off. When these people tried to get back into groups whether mine or other peoples supposedly they were just told to bad you’re out of the rotation. If this truly happened that’s a shame because they worked hard to help get the Kara groups successful in the first place. Now that my Kara group is pretty much done for the week I’m already getting whispers from new people and old people alike about who gets to go next week. I have no idea now, were the reorders supposed to be a permanent thing or were they to just expose people to the fights so they can learn and go do it in their own groups? There are a few posts on our forums about the re-order and pissed off people with no real answer as to what we are supposed to do. I’m pretty sure some of the officers read my blog so someone tell me what to do, and save me from having to hurt people’s feelings. I have mentioned that I used to be a GM before, this is one of the reasons I gave it up, dealing with pissed off people, telling people they are out of a group, and managing a ton of different personalities is not something I miss. I feel both sorry for the officers who I think are catching crap from people but they were trying to do a good thing by helping out the other groups and also the people who were left out for not having done anything wrong.

My suggestion is to tell everyone F*ck Kara let’s do 25 man runs 4 nights a week and go to Kara in your free time. At some point if we really want to progress and become a raiding guild we have to do this right? I realize we have more people than the 25 who will get a spot, but if you are left out of the 25 man it’s probably a gear issue. If that’s the case then make a Kara group and go while the other guys are in the 25 man. If I’m one of the guys left out the 25 man raid what happens? I’ll go farm badges in Kara till a spot opens up in the raid. If a spot doesn’t ever open up for me in the raid for weeks on end what then? I’ll go kill one of the tanks in Real Life, bingo! spot available, couldn’t be more simple. With the new year coming up maybe it’s a good idea to make the transition? Or is that even the direction the guild would want to go? I hope it is, I don’t want to farm Kara forever, let’s really dig into some 25 man content and experience more of what WoW has to offer.

Anyways this will probably be my last post till next Wednesday , I won’t have time with the holidays to write anything. Mostly all I do is threaten people with beatings anyways, which if Santa hears me I won’t get anything for Christmas and u know I’m a loot whore so it’s probably just better that I don’t post so close to the holidays.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday!

I'd really love to do just that. Screw Kara, 4 nights of 25 mans!

And the question you ask is a really really important one.
