Like A Sucker Punch to the Gut

I logged in this morning to find I have no guild.

There's nothing on the guild website explaining. Nothing telling me what happened. No one's online in the guild.

No warning. No discussion. Nothing. I just have no guild.

I don't know what happened, if I was kicked by accident, if my guild just disbanded, if it was ninja'd and everything's gone...

Just a rude way to wake up on my way to finish my Pilgrim's Progress achievements.

EDIT: Apparently our GM got hacked. But my guild was hanging on by sheer willpower due to some unfortunate recent events, so it's not getting back together. A bunch of our core is transferring to Horde today, so I'm not sure what I'm doing...

EDITEDIT: We may be getting back together. If you're a member of Vigilant (the former one, not the one the trade troll has), please get in contact with me, Grym, Conrad or Blob so we can work on sorting this out.

Wow, that WOULD be jolting. Had that happen once with a guild that I really didn't care either way on, and it still jolted me.

Hope it's nothing serious.

That sucks, you still seem to be in the guild on the armory.

Could be
- An officer was hacked.
- Random gkick (don't know your guild but doesn't sound too likely)
- Or (hopefully not) an actual gkick or full guild disband (if your not updated on the armory then probably no one else is as well).


If your seeing no a single person online from your guild then it was probably a gdisband either an actual one or because someone was hacked.

Argon said...

Wow, sorry to hear that. Funny what sort of otherwise minor events can disturb an equilibrium.

Matojo said...

Boize said...

:(

Hopefully you still stay connected with some of the people in your guild.

Good luck in finding a new guild too.

Graylo said...

That sucks. A similar thing happened to me a little over a year a go. I logged in for raid to find that the guild had been disbanded. The good news for me was that I found a much better guild that I am extremely happy with.

Hopefully you will have the kind of luck I did.

Glory said...

That really sucks. Even when you weren't kicked without notice, losing the people you play with on a daily basis is rough.

/comfort
/shake fist @ hacker

Bell said...

Thanks everyone. Our (former) GM is getting it all sorted out, has his characters who did not get transferred back, and much of the guild bank. He's getting in contact with as many people as he can to figure out what's happening next; if we're reforming or splitting up.

Com said...

We should form a 10-man raiding guild for ICC. I know Seks would be game for it.

...Or we could all play Aion and die.

...Or you could learn how to be a man and play Gears of War 2 on Xbox Live (Just don't beat me. I'll feel like,well, a girl).

Bell said...

@Com - I don't have an X Box and I don't own Aion.

Com said...

Then I guess that just leaves sex.

...I don't see anyone in vigilant anymore. Looks like everyone took this as the opportunity to jump ship. Any plans yet? Montt, Wulder and I didn't want Conrad to be GM partly because we feared he'd get hacked, by the way.

Bell said...

@Com - none yet. Talk to me on AIM or something!

Jon said...

sorry to hear this. =(

you know you always have a place in sfa if you want it.

D'awwwww. :Comfort Bell: I would be scared if that happened-- and my guild is just a small friend guild that will PuG raids. we know our phone numbers and can call-- it's got to be worse when you can't figure out what happened until someone thinks to tell you..

Com said...

Souble @ Bell, I don't have AIM! Federal law... I... Well... Okay, I'm not allowed to use any chat devices due to a "ponzie-orgy scheme." Join my vent sometime!

I just hang out there on my own usually with it on. Just yell loudly and I'll move across my apartment. I'm making pie atm...

Keeva said...

Hope it all gets sorted asap.

Verile said...

Really sorry to hear about this.

fallingleavesandwings said...

=(

That is awful. I hope you get everything worked out Bell! Good Luck!

Jb said...

GM acc hack seems more and more common. Prolly best to get a identyficator thingy from Bliz for all guild member with accsess to bank atleast.

Imalinata said...

Ugh... To echo everyone else, that's terrible to log in like that to find the guild has just disappeared. :(

Hopefully things will work out either with Vigilant reforming or in finding a new home.

I admit, I was staring at my roster trying to figure out where I could fit another resto druid if I could convince you to go horde. ;)

Oh hey look its Com, that guy who got a ton of loot thrown at him yet couldn't yet couldn't show up for a raid discussing guild policy.

Will wonders never cease?
