No Clan Wars, no Strongholds, no tournaments, no reason for anyone to slap an acronym on their name and a fancy emblem on their plane. It's really as simple as that.

The lack of healthy competition and an outlet for pent up frustrations bleeds over into the forums, because there is no system to take grievances to the skies where you can just shut up, fly, and settle the matter there.

 

The debacle that has taken place over the past few days is simply a reflection of the current state of the game, where WG has allowed apathy and acrimony to grow and fester, while they try to think up new iterations of fuzzy dice to hang from the mirror of the broken-down hoopty-mobile that is sitting up on cinderblocks.

This is just one of the reasons that I dropped my Warhawks clan-tag last night....at this point, clans serve no constructive purpose, and are little more than breeding grounds of acrimony and divisiveness.

(actually, it's pretty much the main reason I left all those other clans before, as well: SF, GWG, ES, TFE, and WS).  I will not go into my other reasons here, as it is a personal matter.

 

Warchylde is dead. He was optimistic, altruistic, and a little naive in thinking that some friendly fun could heal the growing rifts between the leading clans.

Warchylde is dead. His naivete' was his undoing, and he succumbed to the ennui that pervades this game ever since WG reneged on their promises to give us a reason to even HAVE clans.

Warchylde is dead.  He died of disgust.

Why post this again when your post from yesterday is still in recent topics?

I used to have a handle on life until it broke off.

Because I'm tired of answering a dozen in-game PMs, explain why I did what I did. Now it's all out there for everyone to see.

It still wasn't necessary. The smart move would have been to just step back and let the drama die but instead you are causing more drama.

Come on, Brush....let the drama die?  Same arguments and hurt feelings from 3 years ago are affecting today's events.

I stopped running the tournament, left my clan, and even changed my name in response to these years-long feuds.

The drama was here before me, and will continue long after I'm gone.

Please don't be as naive as I was.

I like not being in a clan in WOWP. With my generic name and no clan tag.

I get mistaken for a bot.

Welcome to the world of the loner.  I have been lucky enough to hang out with a few clans, good times, never joined one. It wasn't for me. I fly solo and enjoy the game at my own pace. Good luck, and remember, to kill a clan member is fun, if you kill a clan flight, priceless.
