why did *some people* have to go and disrupt the newbie event ? don't you get it ? if you keep driving off newbies we wont have anyone coming over . in case you haven't figured it out , that's less targets for you to attack in the future. even em quantum expressed his exasperation with the whole thing . you going to drive off our em too ? no the guy doesnt play siege . they cant as a rule . ea doesn't want local people in charge due to conflict of interest issues . (showing favoritism to friends) give the poor guy a break . he had limited areas to go to due to the guard zones being down. he doesnt like that idea any more than we do but he said there is little he can do other than page a gm like us. hes still going to try again next month . please for all our sakes cut the newbies some slack . that is unless you are happy with the same 20 some poeple we have actively playing . strange how quickly you seem to come out when there are newbies or crafters to gank. maybe all you want to do is street fight . fine , but you have to realize you need crafters to supply your potions smoke bombs etc . you need farmers to come up with totem of the voids and such . if you keep driving these poeple away , its going to affect hard core pvpers eventually... when the supplies run out.
