I’m in a glass case of emotion.
Well, for the first time I can remember, I’ve been kicked out of my guild. And I don’t know how to take it. Allow me to set the scene:
After Ashes of Tirisfal stopped being active I found another ‘raiding’ type guild on my server. It was a guild I enjoyed being in. Most of the members I liked and I greatly respected the co-GM’s. I raided with them sparsely but I enjoyed the part I was allowed to play.
So all of that changed yesterday. I was in ICC 10 with a pug/friends group and someone in guildchat started making fun of a random rogue in leveling gear. Spellpower leveling gear. Not a rogue in his party, just some guy questing in the same area, alone. I suggested that the rogue wasn’t causing any trouble, that +20% xp was better than better itemized stats and that he should hush. “sry i didn’t mean to make fun of ur boyfriend” is the response. “Imagine if the poor guy only had one set of leveling gear,” I say. One of the GM’s pipes up and says “he should buy another one.” Then the other GM jumps in and says “that’s my brother, you have to respect my brother,” and I am promptly kicked from the guild. Immediately I get a whisper from the kicker that says, in effect, “send me your crybaby letter in the mail and I’ll read it later.”
I’ll admit that I’ve never cried and I’ve never thrown anything over WoW. Yesterday I did both. I was so hurt and shocked. I told the GM that I had always been a friendly, helpful member of the guild and that she was being short-sighted and nepotistic.
So I logged over to Argent Dawn and hid in <Single Abstract Noun>. They were supportive and told me horror stories about guild drama that made me feel downright thankful for my experience.
So I’m frustrated and humiliated and…looking for a casual Horde raiding guild that needs a Druid Healer, must have cool tabard and guild bank. pst.
