I fully support this! Sorry that you were lead around so long Po, but when we telling you earlier about what was going on it wasnt in malicious way (well for some it might have been XP) but more in a blightwood neighborhood watch kinda deal.
I for one am happy you ended up getting island of dawn, because from what i've read of your comments posts etc you seem to be a very decent person who wont abuse the new player pop walking in within this month.
so kudos to you and glad to hear this news!

No problem! you earned it! Also i might be a little ahead of myself... but we should push for a sticky so all the new players can check it out without forum diving or hersay.
i really really really really REALLY hate necro'ing threads, but the folks who created this did a banging job. If you're reading this and havnt signed up on this enjin site you are seriously missing out. So much camaraderie and community building! and for the most part, its NOT ANONYMOUS WOOOOOOO.
we just happen to be the biggest atm, and alot of the animosity were seeing is related to that.
Why would being the biggest guild cause ANY animosity? That is the stupidest bunch of hogwash that I have heard that I would expect an 8 year old to grow out of. I mean, If that's the case, there will always be a "biggest" guild and therefore hated. Really, that was a far reaching point into the depths of the filthiest flushing toilet. Get it together man if you want to save face for your guild.

all in all there are a LOT of changes coming to crux, yes people despise spartacus's political tactics, but as far as guil leader goes, hes doing a good enough job.
Let me tell you my brief history with Crux and you decide how good of a job that rectal tuft of pubic hair you call Spartacus is really doing:
I was questing and in the middle of a fight when Wolverine invited me to a party - keep in mind, I was fighting, so I didn't accept. What's more, I had been in the guild for maybe three hours and didn't know ANYONE in the guild. More far reaching, I had been playing the game for maybe 3 1/2 total hours at this point.
So the quest is done and I get a whisper, "WTF!" by Wolverine. Still not knowing he was in the same guild I whispered back, "?". He asked why I didn't join party and I told him straight - I don't know who you are and I am playing Tera and avoiding another WoW experience. I am justified in that response cause he whispered "WTF" first and kind of put me on my guard.
So, they kicked me.
Then that RToPH (Rectal Tuft of Pubic Hair), your glorious leader who is doing such a fine job whispers, "What happened?" I told him I got kicked and not sure why. What's more, I didn't know Spartacus was a guild member or the GM like I didn't know anyone else in the guild. He didn't say another word.
Let me tell you something about leadership Master Po. I am retired Navy and a good 17 of those years I was a supervisor. You NEVER listen to just one side of the story and you NEVER just let things go without some type of response even if you are in fact going to stand by the side of the person who kicked you. A true leader wouldn't ask a question and not follow up. A true leader doesn't need to play political games like your RToPH. Wanna know how to really handle political situations, this is for idiots 101 needing to boost their political prowess:
1. Whisper guild leaders and wish them luck in the up coming election.
2. Talk to people on the server and in different chats and be opinionated yet polite and let people see your fun side.
3. Be firm on things you feel should be changed
4. Let people know in LFG and Area that you are running and offer them assistance with quests. If you can't do it personally, then ask your guild if they would help you represent. Follow this by explaining to your guild the benefits of being a Vanarch guild and reason with them explaining that they are still getting experience and moving up levels by helping out.
5. Say it out loud in LFG and Area chat, "You are exactly the type of person I wouldn't have in my guild because (fill in the situation here).
6. Say it even louder in LFG and Area chat, "You were a blast to quest with and I would give anything to have more like you join the ranks of my guild."
7. When someone is kicked, you let them know why. You also let them know they aren't ever welcome back.
8. Explain your guild up front when someone joins. I personally take the time for each and every one of my guildies when they join. If they join when I'm not online, I get back to them. That way everyone knows your toleration and surprises don't diminish your guilds reputation
9. Most important thing you can do - DON'T EVER, NOT IN YOUR EXISTENCE DEFEND ANYONE THAT HAS ALREADY SPOKEN FOR THEMSELVES LIKE SPARTATWIT DID WITH SO MANY PEOPLE ON THE SERVER.
There's my wall of text and please, don't ever give some stupid crap about our guild has a bad rep cause of the bleeding obvious things that can't be helped (a.k.a. size, guild crest, etc.). After reading your defense, I can say without a single wink that I won't lose any sleep over you or your guild ever. Now that you have seriously bashed your own rep with stupid ideals on how elections should be run and your defense on a pitiful creature called Spartastupid, let's see if you have real leadership and get yourself out of this hole. Hint: Be the GM you say you are, independent of someone elses thought and control and start your own guild with your own name (yes, show your guildies you have some originality) and give them some direction. I myself will never apologize or defend for someone elses stupidy.
anger and rage aside, it makes a lot of sense. kudos to the people in crux that are actually trying to do something about it.
@masterpo, good for you for organizing events. i just saw that thread. island of dawn or not, its still a community event and its still an effort.
Everyones said it, and ill put my opinion into it too. crux is a sinking ship just because of sparty boy and close friends. Ill be more interested to see what happens 5 months down the road. the guilds that slay together stay together. whether its a bunch of friendly people in one place, or a bunch of doucher assclowns- its the same result.
Sparticus is doing one smart thing though, keeping his mouth shut on the forum threads. I guarantee [filtered] would be 1000 times worse for him if he did.
anyways as far as im concerned this entire topic is over and dead. Dont forget to vote tomorrow! Those of you who are active in the community keep doing what you're doing because for the most part its working.
much love to all my friends - Sakura
and the person who is not sleeping strikes again!
I hope everything works out for you stalkholm and you find that perfect guild that fits your niche. as for judging players- i hope i speak for most of the community when i say attitude means everything. If you're a conscious minded player you wont play witha guild tag that incriminates your personal character. guilt by association really isnt a myth. but my point is that I like to experience players first hand before i make up my mind.
i like my coffee black just like my metal
anyone happen to know if any mobs grant this rep like valsyker hunt rep? thanks in advance.
Don't worry op. only one man can do this- Liam nessan. And I'm pretty sure he isn't playing Tera, but hunting down European human traffickers.
Make sure you have a decent processor. Everything else is relatively low as Void425 said.
