So, these last couple months have been just loads of stress outside of gaming, but also just some grand annoyances while in gaming, as well. A lot of it relates to some guild drama in both Rift and WoW. Quite frankly, I’m sick of it. The backbiting, the name-calling, the downright immaturity of it all. It would be one thing if people that are adults would take the time to act like the adults they are. Personally, I try to avoid conflict, and prefer to have civil discussion, but even I am human and have had my part in these issues. I’m sure as shit not infallible.
That said, guild drama sucks, especially when it leads to people either quitting or getting kick from a guild. I mean, I get that there are going to be personality conflicts and whatnot, but when there are people that are supposed to be the ones you look up to and respect looking down on, condescending to, or outright being hateful toward other members of the guild, how is that supposed to reflect on the guild to new guild members? Now, I don’t expect people to maintain civility 100% of the time, but recent weeks have proven to be an exercise in sheer frustration.
