I feel the need to go ahead and contribute to this discussion. I agree that the current system for the bosses is indeed unfair to the people that do come and help. The bosses lately have been a faction effort, it's only fair that the drops should be able to go to the entire faction. Kind of like how the boss in bloodstar works.
However, in response to this yan_yan person, since I feel that post is directed towards my guild, I feel the need to respond. First off, Sunless isn't the only guild to get the drops. We just get the majority of them, I know that. I owe a big thanks to Hentai's generosity in focusing their entire guild on PvPing and killing the RG while my guild sets up a DPS party and a second party to hold off RG. I have some issues with your logic in calling us parasites, users, and selfish. I'll explain why:
1. At the end of the day, I don't really care who gets Titan, as long as it isn't the Royal Guards.
2. If I can, I give drops back to people, but understand I have 45 members in my guild. 20-25 of which are currently active in boss raids. I have 20-25 people that I need to gear, just like I'm sure most other guilds have people that need gear, and given the choice, their going to help their guild first.
3. Unlike Vix, I do sometimes sell Titan drops, but if I'm selling drops from Titan (which are usually just accessories or cybersuits) I undercut everyone so it sells faster. So I don't sell for a ridiculous amount of gold. (Granted sometimes I do only undercut by 1 bronze)
4. If my guild does something that I disagree with and it ultimately screws over our faction, I get mad at them for it. While most of the faction's mentality pisses me off, I actually DO somewhat care about the faction.
Let's be real here for a minute though. I spam shouts for help at Titan, yes. Almost every single time I do I get hit with some whispers about "What's in it for me?" Or "Only one party gets the drops I don't wanna go." etc etc. Which is fine, to each their own. But who are you to call us parasites? Until recently, our guild couldn't even secure titan without the help of other guilds, and to be fair that's still somewhat true as we do need faction support in order to hold off the royal guards. We have the members to set up two parties, why can't you? We were undergeared at one point and had to work extra hard to try and catch up and compete with other guilds. Why can't you? We put in effort into getting where we are now. If you beat us in dps, I'm not going to be mad at the end of the day. As long as the Free Knights get it, it's a victory to me. The fact it goes to Sunless is just an extra bonus. Also, at the 12:30pm Titan today, we didn't even try to secure the boss at all, we only went to kill RG. The boss ended up going to Escaflowne guild if I recall correctly. From my perspective, you're more of a parasite than we are, and I mean that with all due respect. I'm not trying to be rude.
You're more than welcome to put dps parties together to take the boss for yourself, but if my guild is doing the highest damage why shouldn't we deserve the drops? We were also in your position once. I never said I had a problem with the faction getting loot. Gear up. Get better. Get drops. The only problem I have is when I see 21093129031 royal guards pounding on us and everyone is focusing Titan...or Dirgebane....while Titan is still up. As long as people repel the RG when they need to be repelled. As long as we aren't resetting the boss on each other, I don't care. I'm aware Hentai is ahead of us in dps and they could take the drops from us if they wanted to. You're more than welcome to take the boss from us. I swear neither my guild nor myself will be mad at you for it. Man up. Your guild would do the same thing if it could. If I'm wrong, feel free to prove me wrong. Start securing bosses and start trying to pass out drops to everyone that came to help. Tell me how it goes for you. /end Elitism
And to all the Free Knights on Andromeda that DO come help at Titan: Thank you so much for helping. I'm proud of the faction..most of the times. It's true we wouldn't be taking Titan without all of you, and your support is greatly appreciated. Let's continue to **** up RG.
