Good mate darklymocai, I appreciate your time to reply to this "rant thread".
My intention was that some players were taking advantage of the guild brawling system, as a method of quickly raising their own pirates. Of course, there are only a few players who do this so far, but I can name several players who "hops" between beginner guilds only to "farm" these cards for their own advantage. Naturally, groups of players will perform similar actions for their own benefits.
If I have offended you by using you as an example, I will sincerely apologize. Such was not my intention, and you can definitely take my word for it.
I also apologize that this thread was created in the spur-of-the-moment; I had "lost" to 5 other guilds including yours, which really made me lose my cool, and discouraged the majority of my guild to even brawl. One of our members even left, probably for personal reasons, but I'm guessing a small portion related to "not being able to win".
However, despite these confessions, I ask you to reminiscence on your actions:
You say you have done nothing morally wrong, but step into other player's shoes. In that battle, you earned a nice 10000 BP in a matter of minutes when the brawl started. With only me earning 80% of the brawl points in that brawl, how do you think our members felt?
Powerless, hopeless, "why bother trying?", and you name it. Me being higher ranked was my attempts to raise the self-esteem of my guildmates, which really didn't work out probably because of how many times I was hit.
Guild brawls do offer x2 the brawl points as normal brawling, but that's still not an excuse to terrorize a newbie guild just so you can climb your ranks quickly. Obviously, while you are "climbing the ranks" again, I'm sure we're not the only guild that felt like this.
What evidence is there that you won't use some other excuse to start afresh? None, but I still give you the benefit of the doubt. I'm sure as an intelligent human being, you'll keep your word on this aspect.
What I do know, however, is that you're making up bullsh*t about simply wanting to raise your guild level. With this brawl event and how you attacked my crew (Usage of two gold humitas and one strong assist for a 3-2 win with 35 attack cost), the two factors match up so conveniently that you cannot argue against it.
You are rightfully justified to become hostile at me, but that's not enough to insult me as the "leader of mediocrity". I may be a 20 year old college student, but I'm still independent from my parents, paying for my own private college tuition; unlike other 20 year old's in this country (This includes the fact that I'm not native to the US either). In addition, I beg your pardon as I state that I have equal, if not higher, level self-esteem than you; seeing how I feel sympathy (or rather currently, empathy) towards players who are repeatedly attacked, even in a game; and can manage to SOMEHOW restrict myself to attacking newbies once, despite my excess stock of kraken jugs I bought for this very purpose (/sarcasm)
If your guild is already winning by a huge margin, maybe you should slow down your attacks.
Recently, I was in a brawl. My guild had 50k points compare to the opponent with 150k points. They were leading at least 100k points. We can't catch up to them; however, they continue to attack us. I had 6 wins and 100 lost. That's 100 lost was one person attacking me repeatedly.
This is just a GAME. But come on, you're winning - YOU DON'T NEED TO continue to attack me to show domination or superiority.
This is exactly what I'm trying to say in that huge post up there. Yes, I understand that you're trying to raise your guild level, but there's a reason why you cannot attack an opponent again in 8 hours, outside of a guild brawl. This is why I prefer free brawling over guild brawls; I attack someone, they have a shot at me back. No matter what the result is, each player is restricted from attacking again; isn't that what's really "fair"? (I'm shocked to hear "morals" from you, when that brawl was really 5 vs 1)
As a final word, I enjoy this as a game, as I do with every other ones. I believe you didn't even see my crappy rhyme above in your rage, and the fact that what's happened is happened. I delivered my message, and me being angry at anyone is just foolish of me.
P.S. Is it just me, or do I feel the greatest irony right now, in the world, from your crew's name?
