During my three years playing I´ve seen both the bad and the good people. And sadly some of the rotten people too. Those people wouldn´t have affected me as much as they did if they hadn´t been the people I shared a guild with. I had people in the guild telling me how I should play my toons. The best way to get those to stop was “barking” at them, take a screenshot of it and reporting to the GuildMaster. Boom.. They got a warning.
Thanks to the rotten people that once lead a guild I was in I got to see how a too close group of friends can ruin the guild. None in that guild that didn´t belong to that friendship group wasn´t sadly allowed to join the raidgroup. Sadly that started a lot of drama in the guild between all the members. I left that guild when I felt that I couldn´t take anymore drama as nothing was taken care of.
But thanks to my bad experiences I now know what I look after in a guild and also what to look after in new people to play with.
As to close of the post…. I have to say that you´ll sadly will meet asshats on both factions. At least I have. But as I´ve said I have also met a lot of friendly and nice people that makes me think that there isn´t just mean players out there.
