Why I dislike guilds

Guilds. This term irks me so. I have a dislike for guilds, but I should say why I dislike guilds so much. And by proxy why I am not fond of guild leaders and the new guild communities, and this should clear up why I am not fond of guilds.

Let’s start. I’m OnyChaos by the way. :3

Disclaimer: This is me, venting/ranting. And it is crazy that I have to add such a thing. Take what you see with a heavy gain of salt. I’m just telling you what I think and how I feel.

The Dragon Knights

There was a time where I loved guilds, and let’s go back a few years to where it started and why I loved being in guilds. 2017 is not the year. 2011 is not it.

2009 to 2010 is the year. Back before people were super sensitive or hyper-emotional, I was a part of a fun guild called “The Dragon Knights”, and this was an adventure quest worlds guild run by Dragorath and skydragonv1.

This guild had everything that made a guild, a guild at the time. It had a web chat room, forums, website, and a good community to talk with. It was a fun place. You share memes, progress, and talk to other users on forums. It wasn’t like today where you walk on eggshells, which is petty. 2009 to 2010 was great for me.

The Dragon Knights were everything that I wanted in a guild, but like all things, it has to end.

What happened to The Dragon Knights?

The guild disbanded. Given that most users’ social media was Adventure Quest Worlds, the game’s content was starting to get stale and repeating. And with flash MMORPG also being somewhat laggy on some computers back then, and life called.

During the close to the final days, there were mentions of guild wars and nothing of note. And when the guild died, I left the guild but now raising my standards for guilds because The Dragon Knights left me with a good impression.

A guild leader that is not overly emotional and very sane, and would never make a big deal out of nothing.

Last look at guilds for 2021

So, something I wanted to do for a good while, and that thing is to review guilds I have been in. Something I say I would do but never do. Well, time to change that now. This is just my opinion, I have to state that because you know some people take an opinion as fact.

Let’s start with Elsword guilds. Granted there are some guilds that I am no longer in now, but that doesn’t mean I can’t give my new thoughts on the guilds.

These will be just an end of the year thoughts and such.

ThunderCry

about: ThunderCry is an Elsword guild that does the same thing, as other guilds.

My experience: Let me set the scene for you. It’s 2020, and I’m down on my luck. And out of nowhere, Thundercry sends a guild invite to my alt account, and I am weary of the guild since guilds are something I have never been fond of. Check out the Thundercry category.

Midnight Owls First impressions

Oh, man. Talking about elsword again. Or elsword related content. I want to share my impressions about the discord server and guild called MidnightOwls. Where do I begin? It’s a server. That much, I can say. The some of users are “interesting” but when I learn more about some of the members, I can give a full-on blog post.

Let’s start with the server-side of things. It’s your normal server that adds in guild elements. It’s a guild server. Crazy, right?

I left a guild called blu because some of the members were there to flex and to say I did not enjoy being around people who like to show off is an understatement, and they were not too welcoming, save a few users. So I left the Blu for a guild called MidnightOwls. This is a “dead guild” in elsword.

Let’s start with the Elsword guild. Since joining. I wanted to join a guild as a member, not be an admin. Already not fond of guilds, I was offered “admin”, I said yes, only because I can’t say no and hurt someone’s feelings.

So, outside looking in the guild, it seems it has two people who want to try to run it differently? I feel both sides need to pick aside. I should say this. Trying to revive a guild takes a lot of time and effort to make it active again. And even then there are extra variables.

[blu] Elsword log

So, Elsword has been getting updates, changes, and over all things to make life easy in elsword, although, too little, too late. It is also funny seeing some elsword elitists get so worked over opinions on a video game. There can be a whole post on these users, and how petty they can be or act. But this post is not about them.

Logging into elsword and playing after five months of stopping.

I will be logging in and doing content. Time to see how useful [blu] is this time. this is a progress log.

Witching Hour Thoughts

Hey, it is time for the Witching Hour show “review”, and I don’t want to hold any punches. This will be my experience and how I see the guild. And maybe point out flaws in the guild and the members. The members are something I want to point out, some members can get out of hand, or ruin the experience for others. Just because I am a guild admin in Witching Hour, does not mean I will hold back.

Let’s make sure we are super clear here. These are opinions, and my experience with the guild, these are not a fact but just my thoughts on how I see the guild as a whole. Have to make this clear because some people think opinion = fact.

Editor’s note: I wanted to make a review but this turned out to be more of a free-form rant/thoughts posts, you can look at it as a review but it’s not one, lol.

What is Witching Hour?

Witching Hour was created on march 9th of 2021 by Elphaba.

The Witching Hour is one of many guilds in Phantasy Star Online 2 that offers to help out others, assuming others do their part. But this goes for most guilds, to be honest. And the witching hour is both a social and content guild.

If you ever want people to speak with, you can join a guild, and for the most part, everyone is social in Witching Hour. And if you like to do content, the Witching Hour members have you covered, assuming they are not lazy and are around to help. But they are around to help, most of the time. And I feel the Witching Hour is a good guild for new players.

Witching Hour Guild Impressions

Hmm, I need to think about how to start this out. So, how I joined this guild was the same way I joined the Thundercry guild in elsword, that is, being away from the keyboard. I was away at the time, looking up how to get better gear in Phantasy Star Online 2, and listening to music.

Then the moment I tabbed back into the game, I saw that I got a pso2 invite to a guild called “Witching Hour.” I had thought about declining the invite since I and this unknown guild would lose nothing. But I remember that I don’t have a guild, and if the users turn out to be shitty or pso2 elitists. I can leave the guild guilt-free.

The guild when I joined was interesting and still is interesting. You know what they say? First impressions are everything since they can help create a bond with someone or not. Most of the impressions I got from most of the users in “Witching Hour” have been positive. Now every guild will have those users that are full of themselves, elitists, or both.

Updated thoughts on blu

Ah, Blu. It has been a while since I made a post about this server and the guild. I think about a few months ago, I want to say. But however long it was doesn’t matter since I have new thoughts on blu. And my view on blu and the members has changed since I more or less watch and judge silently.

Blu has been a fun ride. I joined Blu server and when I first came in, I was under the impression that even though they are elsword players they seem to play other games and I had a blast playing scribble.io with the users on the server. Then the next day it stopped. Then it was anime night which I think was 3 people. Me, Sura, and one of his friends.

I noticed from that day onward, the staff and elsword players gave off the impression that they are here for elsword content. A shame too, I would love to have anime nights and game nights with blu members and staff but that ain’t going to happen. I know this is crazy but hear me out. I like doing stuff with a good community. It is more fun that way. It is why I left Thundercry, it was something that was no longer for me. And blu is kinda in a weird spot for me.

Ah, ThunderCry – an end to a saga

Ah, ThunderCry. What a discord server I have been a part of for 11 months. It is funny. I joined this server back when I was down on my luck and so depressed. I didn’t know where I wanted to do in life and still don’t. But I will say I am in a better place.

And well, I suppose it is time for me, huh? There comes a time for me to move on and leave a chapter behind in my life. ThunderCry brought some form of happiness to my life during 2020. there is a part in that chapter I want to leave behind. And now, I have my discord server to focus on and other things.

But I want to list the good things that came out of ThunderCry. It’s only fair since I got so much from ThunderCry, and learned so much. And the guild has done so much for me during 2020.

Talking about Thundercry

Ok. So, I want to humor Ultimate’s plan. Let’s assume that he plans to “revive” ThunderCry. You would need to fix some things on the server. Now I can’t say this would get taken into consideration, but it is worth a shot.

Hi, I’m onychaos. I will be your guide and give some insight into some problems I see with the guild. I already made a post on ThunderCry, which you can check out here >> ThunderCry << Which in that blog post, I give a better run down of what ThunderCry is* or was. But onto the blog post. What can one do when the core of something is gone? And put down your weapons, all whole five of you ThunderCry members.

What are the issues that ThunderCry has?

BLU thoughts

So, I made my post on ThunderCry. And may as well talk about [BLU], the Elsword guild, and discord server. Ah, so. Let’s set the scene, shall we? When I was still in ThunderCry with Shaive. I noticed the lad had an alt character in [BLU] wasn’t sure if it was his main or not. I never ask him about [BLU], but I only heard whispers of this guild in the past.

One of the whispers was that [BLU] is a whale guild, and it was one of the guilds that were close to max level. And of course, after playing Elsword for a good while. I met elitists, who were whales and being me. I assume that [BLU] was going to be a whale guild that was full of elitists that were whales, and your only way to get in was to be a whale as well.

But that was not the case. Shocking, it is funny. Shaive happened to be on Elsword and not AFK. That’s when he offered to invite me to [BLU] Which I was still taking a break from the in-game guilds, and I wasn’t all too fond of joining [Blu] after leaving ThunderCry on my terms because it felt weird to join another guild behind the backs of ThunderCry.

And I felt like If I said no, I probably would not have another chance to join [BLU]TM, But at the same time, everyone pretty much abandoned ThunderCry.

Editor’s Note: Hey, so. This blog post is just my point of view and my experiences with [BLU]. I am just sharing what I think of the server. Are we cool? Cool. ^^
