People Leaving

Post  Elona Beowulf [lea] on Thu Mar 26, 2009 4:27 pm

I have noticed on the forums that alot of people are leaving us lately.

It sadens me to see people leave as i believe that alot of people we have here have so much potenial in the guild.

I suppose i am really looking for others thoughts...

im not leaving the guild right now, im just sorting out my personal life. Also if i would leave i would only leave for a guild within the ally.

I do like to add that alot of people in the guild are mostly the hardcore "fans" of lea if i can put it like this and are officers. My point is, we have a shitload of officers :p but we lack the activity of members (the common crowd or something).

Anyways, just adding some spam and 2 cents

i kmow what you mean all the members are fly by night people and the officers are on alot more. but it just seems the turnover of members is quite high.

the other way of putting it is, i dont like watching them leave. i found this place to be so inviting and enjoyable that it drives me to play the game. however we seem to lose members as fast as we make them lol.

it has always been this way, some people dont like to stay in one place for to long others go off to start up there own guilds, it has got to the point that if they leave they leave and i no longer feel sad by it, I do feel sad tho if it was one of our core players and im very sad to see Mydea go he had been with us a very long time and was once an officer in the guild, he was demoted as he had alot going on in his personal life and was unable to come on for along time, we were all pleased to see him come back, so we will all miss him. and as Spawney puts it there is a core of Lea and Anna and I have even talked about just keeping the guild to running with the main people we have and not bother to recruite any more, we have had our fair share of problems with new players in the past, but for evey ten she recruites we always manage to keep a few gem players that turn out to be realy great. So if any one has any ideas on this please feel free to voice them.

Gawd Rich....i wish i had an answer.
Over the past 19 months,i must have recruited hundreds (litterally) of players,and nine times out of ten they leave.Even the ones who say it's a great friendly Guild suddenly go missing.What can you do?
The whole idea of LEA from day one was to give new players a place to start from,help them build thier experience,and hopefully shield them a little from some of the buttmonkeys you encounter on GW.Unfortunatly,they get good,then they go.
I dunno.....there's a hundred and one reasons why they go.I stopped and thought today..........all the hours i've spent recruiting,(sometimes i've spent a whole saturday just going from town to town recruiting) the times Nandi,Prinses,Sarah and i (and a whole bunch of other people) have helped players get from point A to point B in the game,the weapons and money we've given them to buy armour with....what the heck was the point?
I get very down about things sometimes.Yes.....i know it's just a game,that goes without saying....but it's the hours and the effort we put into it only to realise the other person does'nt give a monkeys.I've sat up till 3 or 4 am in the early days.Isla too.Just to help someone out who's left the next day.It does'nt make getting up for work the next morning any easier.That's the thing that makes you get bored and fraustrated with the game.
If every person we ever recruited had stayed,we'd have about 450 members by now.That's a lot of 100G's every time you sign someone up.
As Isla said tho,for every ten divvys you get a couple of good people,so i guess it's worth it.I don't know if i really want to devote that much of my free time to trying to make the game better for people starting out anymore,i think recruiting is gonna come to an end very soon.

you're right Anna it does get you down. But I for one refuse to be beaten into the ground by the selfish people on here. and i will continue to recruit people i think woulds get along here well.

I'm not looking for this to be the best guild out there, infact i think if it was it wold ruin what makes it so great as it is, but i do think there are more people out there who are willing to give it a proper go.

I think what makes this place so great is the feeling that you believe in each other and in the people you find in-game, thats what keeps me here and i decided that i would be dedicated when i started up this time.

I thought about adding this to my last posting.......was'nt sure if it's in the frame of the subject or not,but i'll go for it anyways.
In the early days,Isla went after faction like a demon and set about putting together the Alliance.That left Nandi and myself to deal with the running of the Guild.Back then,our Officers were crap.Sorry to use that term,but they were.We always had 5,and out of those 5 only Nandi and i ever came on.About this time last year,i had what we refer to as "an on-screen freak out".I'd had enough.
I left the Guild with our two South African members in tow and formed "The Morphic Assassins".This did'nt turn out to be the great solution i'd envisaged.The idea was that we would join the Alliance,support LEA and in the meantime give me a break from what i'd spent months doing.What it did in fact,was make half the Guild leave,Isla felt i'd deserted her,our Officers all hid (except Nandi) and the place generally fell apart.
About this time,a guy i'd met who'd just started out joined the Guild.We'd helped him through the game from pre,and known him quite a while.After a few weeks,he decided he wanted to start his own guild."We will be the sword of the Alliance" he reckoned.
3 weeks in,after we'd helped pay for his hall and he'd taken our best players and Officers,he suddenly announced he was quitting the Alliance to start one of his own.We we'rnt happy,and neither were his members as he'd not said a word to any of them.We fell out big time.
After my Guild fell apart,i quit GW for about a month.I had'nt been happy there,and i kept thinking about LEA.
Isla talked me into coming back,and i was glad i did.I approached the game differently after that,and i've kinda adopted the approach of "if the place falls apart,who gives a monkeys?" Of course,i don't want it to,but i'm not gonna let it worry me like it used to.
I have 1,001 other examples of people leaving,double-crossing,etc.etc. but i'll save them for another post.
The other day i asked Isla "If we were starting out,knowing what you know now would you want to start a Guild again?"
I won't repeat the answer here,but it ammounted to a definite "NO!!" I feel very much the same way,and i say again to anyone thinking of forming a Guild......think twice.
God i hate this game......AnnaX.

Random word of the day: "Diapers"

As for a reply to the post, yes i agree about the guild thing, its not easy all the time and you need to put some effort in it if you wanna succeed. Im not on alot as you all know and it will be like this for a while. (this maybe is off topic but hey, its a forum)

Tomorrow (saturday 28th march) my grand parents are married for 50 years. We gonna go celibrate that with lots of stuff and funny things. (thats how my mom discribes it)

Oh well, i dont realy give a flying fart but just to fit in and not get noticed, just go with it.

This pretty much goes same for a guild as a member, roll with it, do your part in it and be nice at all time. Dont try to stick out (unless you just stick out, you cant help that ofc) and make it nice for everyone. Dont backstab, cheat, annoying, ect as you are playing with real people and unless your a selfish ***** ****** i suggest you be the mature one and be nice Smile even if your realy angry. Show respect at all times. Keep low profile (if you can, i spam to much to be able to do that).

Thats what i just wanted to type while being tired, high on coffee and close to going to bed and waste another day in life.

Bless you all

~ Spawny

ps: for the parts that this post didnt make sence, keep in mind that i dont make sence myself!
