Lets be real here. You didn't kick me specifically. You kicked 70 people, and started inviting people back but I wanted no part of that so didn't ask about the situation. Was one of the worst mismanaged guilds I've seen in 15 years. That is not coming from a place of anger , but a complete unadulterated truth. I was mostly silent the entire time I was with guild and just made mounts for you guys repeatedly. Hundreds of them. You make it out like I did something wrong by having 2 direwolves and Lizzys piglet? They were direwolves that were returned resources from crafting previous direwolves that I had not arranged an escort to get them back to dauntensea yet, and lizzys direboar piglet she asked me to raise for her. Like I raised several for BC members throughout the time.
I personally was over BC within a week of launch after seeing the mistakes made back to back to back , and the attitude expressed towards its members. Every single day it was do this or kicked, which is a terrible way to manage people. However I was there with a group and didn't want to make decisions for the group so I remained silent. Three times in one week officers pulled me aside to ask me if I was happy, if everything was going good, what could be done differently, and told how much they valued me and wanted me to remain with BC. At least 90 minutes of 1 on 1 talks with me to make sure I wasn't going to leave. Being straight up asked to not leave by officers including shorty if I was unhappy and to come to them so they could fix things in guild. I agreed to help turn that shitshow of a guild around with advice and such. I was even hinted at by gwandir that BC needed more NA officers etc.
So do not represent it differently. What you guys did was set up a huge number of people and players for failure from the get go, and then make a split in a way that would completely fuck them over and keep them from being able to further play without major trouble. You did not allow people to have more than 1 set of gear to their names. Donate everything else. Then made them push for an amount of gathering mats donated, that the officers themselves didnt reach. Lead by example, not by demands. As soon as that deadline hit, you removed 70ish people. It is blatantly clear , especially by officers not making the demanded goal , that the plan was simply to have 70 people fund 15 for the rest of the beta. Without a single concern about how that would affect those people. One of the most dastardly moves Ive seen in all of my gaming time. This attitude was also blatantly apparent in the BC rip thread after this all happened, when both Finnstack Leadership and BC leadership talked shit to the people they just fucked over. Laxist posting rick rolled videos , and Rexi calling people scrubs and telling them to fuck off basically. That attitude was prevalent because Finnstack and BC felt they held all the cards *resources* and those other people could just get fucked. Unfortunately for them, their management is so incredibly bad they didnt realize that one of the people they invited back was in a package deal. Something that was well documented in both the aps and many conversations in guildmeetings and with officers. So yes, one of the people who they let back into BC was there soley to make things right. His original plan was to be Robin Hood, and return everything to all the 70ish people who farmed it all. To set the Karmic scales right. To be the Hero that Albion needs, and the one that BlackStack deserved. Unfortunately,
it took way longer than expected I guess to do and it became apparent the gig was up and as soon as an officer was on it would be stopped. So the materials were not taken out of RWC. They are in the AH completed buy tab. So whichever guild that player joins will have a territory worth easily 125-150 million silver to take. Red Water Cove is now officially the most valuable territory in the game to take control of to access that AH.
As far as other ways to approach the situation as Retaliate said, no it was beyond that point. That point was before they kicked and stole from those people. That point was when they could of respectfully restructured and made sure that they werent crippling 70 players. They crossed that point. Homeboy didnt. This post is a last ditch effort to get some mercy from Bercilak since he had been outted again as being the banned player. This post cost him nothing and is completely insincere. The mass kick was done after a rageout. It was a terrible disrespectful selfish way to go about things, and karma reaped what it sowed. To turn this tables on the other guy simple for evening the field and leaving both sides in the same position is slanted , horrible logic, and completely political spin doctoring. Its unfortunate that he wasnt able to get the stuff out and return it to those players but at least niether side will benefit off the labors of others, and everyone will move forward based on their own abilities and not a scam of the other side.
This was the best possible result to happen if you were completely objective about the situation. This was pure Karmic balance.
1. tride was the single officer that didnt get 1 mil on a single account but more than 1 mill on his accounts combined.
2. I also slacked but only played a week and only got to 400k true correct.
3. Our intention was never to purge but it had to happen unfortunately you guys broke me the day after deadline. which is why you think we needed sheeps. You might think that but you dont know how many old people we kicked so yeah get facts straght bro i had no ill intentions never had.
4. Why would i want to even kick that many people it wouldnt benefit me whatsoever, just too much bullshit in the guild to fix pretty simple.
