It got me thinking

24/03/2010

Whilst reading a post @ Righteous Orbs this evening, it got me thinking.. as it always does.. Tamarind does have a certain retorical flair, a flair i unfortunately dont share lol. The post was talking about the ever regular emotional drama within most guilds, and why its such a big deal. Although I’m normally opposed to any such basic generalisation of any group of individuals in terms of habits, attitudes, activities etc, i do feel that the WOW Guild is an organism with 3 main components..

  1. Them that give a fuck.
  2. Them that dont give a fuck.
  3. Them that don’t know, whether or not, they give a fuck.

Them that give a fuck, either put up with all the shit for the sake of the guild or believe they’re kicking up shit for the sake of the guild.

Them that dont give a fuck just dont give a fuck.. “The shit don’t stick unless I’m throwing it, and as long as i’m getting emblems and gearz, who cares”.

Them that dont know, whether or not, they give a fuck. Come on, get an opinion, a new guild or a new game!!

On the whole i think inter-guildee behaviour and attitude comes down to an individuals concept of what a guild is.

  1. Do they see the guild as a living organism, is it personal to them, do they feel an emotional connection?
  2. Do they see the guild as an inorganic mechanism, a means to an end, just a tool for further development of their character?
  3. Or do they see the guild as a surrogate social life?

I see the guild as a living, breathing organism, its ebb and flow based on dynamics created by its members. Like any living thing it is susceptible to mood swings and deviation from its even keele. Feed it too much tofu and carrot juice, its gonna start watching chick flix and getting to bed at a resonable time (sure I’ve robbed that from somewhere). Feed it too much curry and ale, its gonna get loud and shit everywhere.
