Fun-sucking dramas, STO

January 15, 2010

Well the last few days or so were a combination of annoying guild drama and some quality time spent poking around the Star Trek Online beta. (By the way I love the bug? feature? where you beam to space and instead of seeing your ship, it’s just your little toon, floating in the vast expanses… on the flip side sometimes you’ll beam down to a planet and see yourself scooting around as a mini-ship!)

anyone out here?

she was a star collector

lol

pew pew! I tractor beam youu

Me and my trusty ship, the USS Kahlua, made some Borgs go explody and assembled an away team of redshirts I called Stu, Moe, and Bobby. They enjoy shooting at random mobs and aggroing everything in their path (mostly because I forgot to set them to passive…)

But anyway, back in wow-land, events of last week were somehow the catalyst of 2 officers gquitting, 2 more stepping down, and 3 changes of GM within 24 hours. The brewing undercurrents of drama have been slowly splintering their way across the guild for a long time now, like a crack creeping across the frozen surface of a pond, only to finally explode in a fireball of heated guild forum postings and vent craziness. There is one officer in particular (who will remain nameless since I don’t really know who reads this blog) who has caused some unspoken grumblings in the guild over the past few months. This officer  clashed with 2 other officers specifically and this all came to a head in our guild 25-man ICC run last week, which resulted in the 2 other officers gquitting and the aforementioned craziness.

The dust is settling somewhat at this point but it always makes for a nail-biting time – will the guild go up in a fireball of doom and implode upon itself? Will the new GM ferociously gkick people he/she doesn’t like? What will become of the tadpoles?!

In other news I finally dual-specced Nadeau so he no longer has to quest as a lolresto. Now he can zap face as… a boomchicken!

DROOOO

I said a boom chicka boom

Of course I conveniently forgot that he has absolutely zero gear with hit rating on it, but at least when he misses now, it will be with more oomph!

Oh, and don’t you love the new armory features!? As soon as I found out you could save your toon in a pose that EVERYone would see when they visit your profile, I immediately went and posed all my toons in funny/stupid ways. I think my favorite is the fruity male blood elf hand wavy thing

Oh and by the way, if you live in Seattle like I do, I highly reccomend you stay away from downtown this weekend
