Not long ago I did Imperial Code with Whtprince and Vegetto, won the run, then as soon as we zoned back into whitegate Whtprince says {Disbanding party.} {See you again!} and promptly disbands. As someone interested in adding 1 STR to his WS set and being too cheap to buy a flame ring, I send a tell asking about the ??? item. He responds that his linkshell needs him and Vegetto and refuses to reinvite us. Rather, reinvite me, as according to search him and Vegetto were still in a party together. I ask what the problem is, as it would only take a second to reinvite me and trade, while asking Vegetto about the item as well. Whtprince says it was a copper ring, while Vegetto says it was just a box. I ask why he had bothered trading if his linkshell needed him, and he tries to avoid the question. I persist in asking and he tells me to chill out saying it's "just a rare/ex flame ring" and that it was "just a game, chill out". After that he tells me "like I said {Disbanding party.}" and I reply "you didn't disband though"; he refused to say anything except that he was going afk to smoke some weed.

It's sad that someone can't even get a slim chance at a barely above par item without having it taken away from them by people like Whtprince. It's not even so much the item as it is I'm fed up with people this week and he just happened to be the 5th or 6th person to get on my nerves in the past few days. So please excuse me for the wall o' text; I know not many people even probably care enough to read about another Whtprince warning, but hopefully someone will recognize the name looking for members and think ahead to not have their item taken.

??? Rings: Serious business.

Ya I don't do pickup assault unless it's just for AP, if you want an item it's better to coerce friends into a static of people who each want an item and promise to stick in until everyone gets their shiny.

'Cause situations like above are way too predictable rly.

Bah, Whtprince was the first person ever to make it on my Blist when I was taking DRG through Valkurm Dunes (DRG75 now btw so it was like... 2 years ago).

The entire time he was talking about how much DRG sucks and after I told him to stfu he threatened to get his linkshell to MPK us. Eventually the entire party got sick of it (apparently he went on for like 30 minutes insulting me after he was already blisted) and so managed to MPK him when he decided to pull.

I've never really heard anything good about the guy, so much /comfort to the OP but sadly this doesn't really surprise me.

Good luck on getting that ring!

Edit: I scholar'd you! :D

Whtprince, eh? I'll have to add that one to my /blist. I already figured out long ago that Vegetto wasn't to be trusted, so he's already on the list.

Sorry you got taken advantage of, man. I remember a specific time I completed an assault and got a ??? box. The person who had it, after getting back to whitegate, said he had to log. As he is logging, we try asking him to appraise... but... after a few seconds, he's gone.

I don't care what the ??? item is. If you're not going to appraise it, don't open the **** box. Even if it is crap, who are you to judge an item's worth for other people? I mean, really. On rare occasions even ??? boxes can be good. I've seen quivers, pouches, and tool bags in boxes.

Again, it's not so much the ring I cared about, but if he'd steal something as petty as a ??? ring from a complete stranger, odds are he'd take advantage of even close friends to get something that actually mattered.

He was shouting for a member today, I would have gone however seeing his name and reading this I decided against it.

Threads like this work.

He has and always will be a scrub. This really wasn't unexpected behavior from him.

rofl, I don't bother to post much at all anymore...but I have to say, Whtprince is one of the few amazingly bad characters whose name I remember to this day.

Years back, I partied with his PLD back in Qufim Dunes. The first thing he said, upon being invited into the party, was something along the lines of..."I just got out of jail for raping a female elvaan lol". Seems that, apparently, he had been spamming derogatory emotes in Jeuno and gotten canned for it.

During the party (I don't know why we didn't just kick him), he would afk randomly and put me on /follow. After experiencing this a few times, I did what any rational person would do...threw sneak up (was XPing WHM) and ran over to try and get him to aggro a banshee.

Unfortunately he came back in time to spam "BANSH; NOK! TURN LEFT!" so my MPK attempt was a complete failure.

Honestly, I thought this was one of those bad players that would fade into obscurity...but he somehow made it to 75, and continues to play to this day?

The mind boggles.
