You are correct, Silencer, that is actually precisely what I was addressing with that statement. But I got bored of that argument. When he misinterpreted it so much, either purposefully or not, I realized it wouldn't matter what I said. Since the friend argument can easily be countered by the friends joining, it's clear that he's simply not interested in doing so.
I already type so much, it's tiring =/ That's why I randomly drop arguments, otherwise it's easy to go on forever. I still have a few messages and posts I need to answer but I'm all typed out and tired after work today.
Atlantis; I'm glad I could clear that up. But that made me chuckle. You already said that I type too much in another post, and you say that I should make sure I am clear and in-depth like this in all my posts. That would mean I would have to type more
Usually I don't like to explain the logic behind my reasoning, because I feel that it is common sense most of the time. Silencer here is a prime example of that. People who use common sense are very predictable when it comes to arguments, for someone who is like-minded. For example, I wouldn't argue with someone like Silencer, because in an argument he is the kind of person that would know in advance what my counter argument to an argument would be, because we both would have predicted the others side already. Just like how there are many sides to an argument that would back up my side that I would discard off the bat simply because it's a silly point. As an example, I wouldn't use an argument like 'staying with friends'. (Not trying to spark another argument here, just using the best example at my disposal right now...) because there is a simple solution to it; friends join too.
And I do apologize for the actions of that priest. As I said, this is not my intention or motive. Although there is a good point behind the argument that big guilds = drama, I can assure you that more drama will be caused by such scenarios as I've described in my other post. Things will be a lot more... difficult, and the goal will become muddy if we also have to fight with Yllser's as a result of misunderstandings or other issues. But, I'm being an optimist in that people can put aside differences with each other in the guild. If conflicts arise, they will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. I could not possibly predict right now what would be the result of guild members PKing each other without knowing the circumstances surrounding it.
On a side note, I can assure you that the CN guild and ZT do not in fact respect each other
Hennesey; My 'just cause' for wanting everyone to join is explained in this very thread.
illegal content removed; Welp, of course that is a possibility, as all things. I try not to think that far ahead, and take the goal one step at a time, though. If something along those lines were to happen down the road, then I will deal with it then. I'm more of a 'deal with the problems you can deal with now' type of guy. I'll deal with the problems of the future, in the future. There's nothing I can do about them now anyway, so there's no need to break my head over it. All I can do is try to steer away from such a path. The best way I can do that is try to get everyone on the same page, and maybe even make old enemies and rivals into friends or at least being able to tolerate one another. Even if Lucky were to break apart either gradually or suddenly, so long as it is done cordially between everyone, we would be one step ahead of where we were before.
Edit; oh, and as far as I know Ted is still joining on live. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a secret, but I assumed it was not since he's talked about it in the center of Yllse market before. But of course, I am sure Ted is not Ehrgeiz' only friend in Intent to Kill. It's likely that DeadlyShadow will end up leading Lucky at some point in the future, so maybe Ehr will get himself to join then, as it appears my arrogance and thick-skulledness is too much for him
