i realize i said goodbye to this thread but i wanted to leave it with a few facts, and thank those who support us still throughout all of this smear campaign, so again, to those people, thanks kindly for seeing through the smoke. hope to see you all in game!
@fancypants thanks for the vote of confidence, I realize my initial rep is taking a hit, but prior to all of the political scandal that hit us, i made many many friends here in crux, and even with the communities outcry against sparty, after many hours of conversation, and well, i guess you might call it mentoring, he appears to be doing a lot better. My hope is that over the next few months, people will begin to realize this, and those he rubbed the wrong way will eventually let the animosity go and see that all crux is trying to do is play a game, interact with a great server community, and give a little back.
spartacus started out in a skeptical manner, but he is atleast taking solid advice from his other guildmasters, and growing by doing so. a LOT of what is being said is just grapevine hogwash. the real truth is, all that he did was piss off a few guildmasters by his awkward approach to conversation. thats it. these guildmasters, then went on this rampant "Off with his head" campaign. only one person in all the posts, lists a single thing they account spartacus guilty of doing, (not reinviting him), and then turned to calling spartacus a multitude of embarrasing names etc.. so i really stand by him not reinviting this person myself!
Maybe I've let myself become like the captain of the CRUX ship, and am willing to go down with it IF that ever happens, I don't know tbh, but i care about these guys, which is evident in my posts, and would be severely happy if this all just went away. But i also know that in an online community, it never does, because people can hide behind their anonymity, and scream to the rooftops whatever their mind so desires. and this is their right. I just hope the majority of the community realizes eventually that CRUX cares, and we are a thriveing guild of over 700 active members, and god willing, are not going anywhere.
of all the hype in calling us bad, saying bad things about us, etc.. we have YET to go on the offensive, other than to comment on posts made by others. so when you sit back and look at the REAL crux story, what exactly is pissing you off about us?? is it because spartacus told a few gm's he didnt really need their support but was willing to make an arrangement and they took offence to this? look at our numbers.. im not bragging, but with 700+ active votes for each of our vanarchs, he's not really lyeing is he. sure those vanarchs, if they could stop squabbling, might muster that many votes, if they took 5-6 guilds and worked it out, but it is very unlikely to happen. anyhow i dont want to further fuel this whole hoopla of a discussion so,
to those being supportive of crux overall, thanks kindly we appreciate it. to those not, that is your right, but please be constructive in your criticizms, list the things crux has done that offended you personally, how about someone lists a player name, instead of what sounds to be made up "a crux member was mean and did this and that, but i cant remember his name..." again be constructive, list a name so we can deal with the issue... but it wont happen, and why might you ask? because 90% of the complaints in this thread are simple bull malarky. they're posted by the members or gm's of the guilds responsible for the initial smear campaign against spartacus, and crux as a whole because they know they dont stand a chance if they vie for the same areas we do in the upcoming election. so heres their thoughts, "lets smear spartacus, smear crux, smear them as a whole so people will leave, then they wont have enough people to beat us."
problem is guys, there are a lot of people who like to back the underdog, and this is what youve made us out to be, regardless of our numbers. so in the end, we would like to thank you for assisting in filling our guild with new people, i'd say currently we invite a minimium of 15-20 people a day. and this is with very minimal advertising, so we appreciate your help,
have a nice day :)
