Some of you might have seen the rioting in Jeuno regarding Teleports this weekend. I do apologize for this, that was not my intention.
It started out like this...
I come to Jeuno (was waiting on a FENNIR party). And I see this Paladin (Who shall remain nameless) start shouting how there are no tele-taxi's at the time and that there should always be one here. I hear someone else tell this Paladin that Whm's are'nt here to serve you 24/7. He began to agrue otherwise and that, yes they were.
Well, (being the WHM that I am) that pissed me off. So I decided to give him a teleport for 1k (I do not normally charge for tele's, if I am in Jueno and my HP is there and someone ask for a tele, I would be more than happy to give them one, free of course).
Anyways... He declined the 1k and was shouting for a tele. I then started shouting that I would now give teleports for 2k - 5k. Just do get him a little pissed.
Well then this started a debate in Jeuno, people then started saying well look at the prices of spells now. Everything else has risen in price, why should'nt tele's. I agreed with that in a way. Why should everything else rise, and not teleports? After all tele-ports are more for conveinance, than the other things like gear and such. And people will pay more for convenience!
MY reasons for doing this now changed, Instead of getting back at that Paladin, I thought of the future WHM's who whould never be able to afford (raise2 or raise3, or any of the already over priced spells). If I was able to raise Tele's then they would have a chance.
Then I start to hear: well what if people started to charge for Provokes!!! This is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. A teleport cannot be compared to with provoke. Provoke is not a convenience. It is a viable ability use to party. END of discussion on that.
Then the name calling begun, people calling me an idiot and such. All I would say is: there is no need for name calling.
My LS, some where laughing some were not, saying this will give a bad reputation to you and to your LS, so I stoped for that reason. I do not want people to think of me as a trouble starter.
Anyways I just wanted to apologize to those of you who, were in that this weekend.
Oh and if your wondering, I could have made, in about an hour and half, about 40kto 50k, If I took those peoples money who wanted teleports for 2k-5k. Yes that is right people actually were going to pay. But when they began to trade me to give me gil. I told them that was not necessary it was free of charge.
