And as far as someone getting kicked from another shell for this.. you screwed over your own member. What did you expect?
I didn't ***** anyone over from any shell I belong to..Catwho's Dyna shell had no runs scheduled during that time, and I didn't knowingly ***** anyone else over either.. I even apologized. I'm not sure of the exact time the 2 LS had scheduled Xarc, but we entered nearly 2h before we got any /tell from the leaders.
With 8 people, the run could have easily lasted an hour, and I personally didn't expect us to stay in there for 3h. We caused a -delay- in the scheduled runs, but I don't believe we totally screwed them over.
I've done dynamis for years with Dynacore and we often had people still be the zone we had "scheduled".. We often times simply waited for them to exit. If 30min is gonna throw your whole life off balance then umm... what can I say.. People regularly leave dynamis runs before they end in Dynacore I don't see how all this is ground for damnation.
To elaborate on my story since people are picking sides w/o knowing the whole of it:
As mentioned before I did dynamis with dynacore for many years. 1 week last month, I could not attend any of the 2 scheduled runs due to my RL conflicting with their times. Marylyn was shouting for dynamis-xarc, and I saw an opportunity to do a dyna run during a week I thought I couldn't. I had been first in line for Valor Surcoat in Dynacore and figured if by chance I could obtain that piece outside the LS, some other PLDs would definitely be happy to learn they're now 1 step closer to getting theirs.
Cole, who was on my FL, saw me in dyna-xarc and reported me to Dynacore leadership(Wildman) who then immediately kicked me from the shell. Apparently, being in that shell for 4 years, participating in more then 250 runs with them wasn't enough to solidify my spot in Dynacore after I did 1 run with a pick up group with all the right intentions.
Cole and Wildman are in Yamato too.. Did I ***** them over? no i did not.. Did they ***** me over? yes they did.. but I lived on.
Yamato is a sky\sea shell I was part of for about 2 years. I was among the leaders in points throughout my time with them so my efforts put forth for them was undeniable. I obtained some nice items from Yamato which I totaly earned and deserved. I butted heads with leaders a few times regarding some rules and some changes were sometimes made following our discussions. Changes that the whole shell benefited from and still benefit from.Proof of this is the many /tells I'd get from people thanking me for speaking up when they didn't have the courage to.
I left Yamato on my own because I got tired of sky\sea and the growing bad atmosphere in the shell with a couple members with whom I never saw eye to eye.
I left on seemingly good terms, as the leaders(deku and pravus) told me they were sad to see me leave and hope that I would one day come back. Nothing was said about returning any gear.
I even continued to do einerjar with them for several months..up until last night when I was kicked out of the blue.
Several months, a year maybe after leaving Yamato I had the idea to sell my Novio earring because IMO 20m gil > 7MAB. So I had my earring for sale for a couple months until some night in rolanberry someone bought it for 20m. This gil is now reinvested into my character with updgrades to several pieces for my numerous jobs.
Even after selling the earring I continued to do einerjar with them, and heard nothing from the leadership about the sale. The earring was mine, I was never asked to return it, I was no longer a member, and it was long time after I left..
I had 50+ runs with them in einerjar, killed several Odins and even obtained m.body from the last one we did. I did several other runs with them after obtaining the body.. and there was no issues whatsoever.
So last night I was kicked from the einerjar group apparently for breaking, according to Catwho "the last straw in a long series of straw stacks stacked up".
So this "last" straw apparently was participating in this pick up dyna group with Marylyn. Something totally unrelated to Yamato or ANY of it's members. This is why I say Catwho purposely and maliciously interfered with my game play... just as Cole and Wildman did.
I had done nothing to personally offend any of these people but they still felt the need to personally hurt my game play and kick me out of shells I had a lot of friends in(the main reason I enjoyed doing events with those shells).
And now I'm threatened on the internet to have my end-game reputation ruined by the self-proclaimed Queen of Seraph. Do you think I'm gonna stand by silently while people with malicious intent try to ***** me over? I think not.
On a final note, I agree that its unfortunate that some LS was denied the zone while we were inside and hope it it can be avoided the next time I do a pick up dyna. I apologized, and I apologize again to those disgruntled people who were polite enough to express themselves to me in a mature manner. But when people like Catwho react so rudely and goes on an internet and FFXi crusade to ruin my game, I feel that fire should be fought with fire.. and if I have an opportunity to interfere with their game play, then I will in order to return the favor.
