I have never posted anything before here but I do have a general question that I would like to get everyone feedback on. Especially RNGs that are currently in a HNMLS.
Recently several friends and I joined a newly started HNMLS. (it has only been around for about 2 months) Their rules were simple and items are given out on a point system and if you can use the item. Fair enough right?
Well points are accumulated by being in sky helping the LS, IE: You helped farm pop items for 6hrs in sky you got 6pts ect.
We got around to killing gods and recently we were finally able to kill Kirin. At first they wanted to sell the Shinning Cloths which made a few WHMs kinda upset if you know what I mean. So they decided that the WHM with the most points(minimum50) would be allowed to lot the shinning cloth, and that then would reset their points.
Ok so far not to bad right.
Well heres the part that upset me. For the Osodes (every RNGs dream) the leader said that there was "4 MAIN RNGs" (leader showing favoritism ~_~;) in the LS
(currently there are about 8-10RNGs total that actually show up) These 4people were given the Osodes with our regard to their total points (although their points did get reset to zero)After the "4 MAIN RNGs" received their Osodes the leader then stated that the next Osodes that dropped will be given to the people with the highest points and if they can wearit.
IE: RNGs do not get first choice on the Osodes. The 75 WARs MNKs BRDs SAMs in the LS would now be able to get the Osodes over all the RNGs. as long as they had the points for it.
Does this make any of you RNGs upset yet?
Well this is my question, if the LS is point based then why the heck did 4 RNGs get it first with out regard to their points (The leader had already stated to the LS several times before we were even able to beat Kirin that these 4 people are the first to get the Osodes no matter what) Why pick favorites then turn around and say "Ok now its back to a point system again good luck all you RNGs in the LS I hope you save up those points for a long time, maybe you'll get lucky"?
I am not a RNG in fact I have never even unlocked RNG yet >_<; But I am not oblivious to how much RNGs do for a HNMLS they by far spend the most money and they work hard for ever pop item, and every GOD that is killed.
(and in that LS die the most as well)
I fail to see how a leader can pick 4 RNGs lock them in for an Osodes and then go back to a point system. It should be one way or another.
Either all RNGs get first choice on the Osodes willing that they have points and that they are 75.
Or ANY one who can wear it and ANY one with the points gets the Osodes.
NO PICKING FAVORITES
NO 4 MAIN RNGS (if you a RNG you work hard and spend a lot of money anyways)
NO SAYING THESE PEOPLE GET THEM OSODES FIRST BECAUSE I SAID SO.
Now I could be way out of line. Like I said I don't even have RNG unlocked but I am not a noob I have 75SMN,70BRD,67DRG,65RDM NONE of which really qualify for anything that Kirin drops. So I am not posting this out of greed but I am in fact posting it out of concern that if this is the way all HNMLS's are then screw it I don't want to be a part of any.
Sorry for the long post but I would appreciate anyone's feedback on this EXCEPT the "4 MAIN RNGs" and the LS leader of course you guys would be a little bias ^-^;;
EDIT: Below is the LS rules
Once I reread the LS Rules I realized that its kinda of sketchy on what the LS should be doing with the drops. Its not 100% point based rules but what happened the other day certainly does fit with in the rules either.
