A few months ago, I made the decision to leave a guild I'd been a member of since early 2012 because I just couldn't deal with the drama anymore. There were a lot of nice people there, but there was one person who really, really wanted me out of the guild (and wouldn't admit to it, just kept undermining me). This person had joined only in the last year and hadn't contributed anywhere near what I had to the guild, so I held on for a long time hoping it would get better, but finally I'd had enough. Another guild had been pitching me to join for quite some time and so that's where I went. I haven't regretted it for an instant because the one thing missing from my new guild is drama. If somebody has an issue with you, THEY TELL YOU, they work with you to fix it, and it's over. That's how things are supposed to work when you're adults.
But holy cow, there are a lot of entitled whiners in this game. A huge "issue" right now is that Blizzard decided to take flying for current and new content out of the game, because they feel it detracts from exploration and from real problem solving. They really outdid themselves creating some amazing content this expac, and so I can only agree with them that flying would wreck it. They haven't said they won't put it in later on, when the content is no longer current.
OMG the whining. One person on Blizzard's forums has demanded "all the money" they spent on flying to be refunded. Not real money, you understand. They're talking about EASILY EARNED game gold. Another person in a group on FB (from my old guild, not surprisingly) is going on about how they can't "trust" Blizzard anymore after this "fiasco"...as if Blizzard were their Daddy and he took away the popsicles or something.
And I'm laughing my ass off (I wish I really were; my ass needs some reduction). Blizzard is a game company. Sure they care what their players think; they want people to play the game. But they don't owe anybody anything. I pay money to play this game, and I'm happy to do so, because it provides me with hours and hours of entertainment. I'm happy that if I have an opinion, I know they listen to it even if they don't act on it. But I don't "trust" them. They are not my Daddy. And if I need popsicles, I know how to go to the store and buy them for myself. Again...that's how things work when you're an adult.
