    Regardless of where it was Rex, mag or elsewhere. I am letting you know my opinion, which is solely my own.  I don't like the  attitude that you took when you came to our server. I don't like the things that you're posting on other forums about your plans for some mythical server. I don't like the things that you say in game as evidenced by above and other reports here on TC.  I think you're bombastic and toxic. I am sure there's a place for you somewhere where that kind of attitude is celebrated. I don't think you will find Tarnished Coast to be that place.

    Those phrases/words/whatever were being used in a recent raid that was quite large. Not trying to throw the commander into the fire of TC's political correctness, but the fact is those words were used and nobody seemed to care and I'm 99 percent sure it was a public channel. I think you may have to clean up some more to get your server as clean and homely as you want it, Phlo. Best of luck. 

    For clarification: Those phrases/words were used towards the enemy. People laughed. No tears were shed.

    Edit: Lmao if you think that's not from Mag then you're really digging yourself a hole. Ru care to clarify so Phlo knows for sure ;)?

    as long as you don't bring it here Rex I frankly don't care what you do on other servers. And that kind of thing is not in the public channels on TS here, no. Not anymore. Guilds are free to do so in their own channels. 
    also, note it states Northern Shiverpeaks just flipped Umberglade. Amazing they could do that on Mag at the same time as being our opponent....

    Lol. An out of context screenshot - that's teamchat in maguuma, lots of people there engage in shit talking and just having fun. It's funny on maguuma and people enjoy it. Just the same way that people in teamspeak in TC will call the enemy whores/idiots/cunts/whatever word you want to use. Don't try and deny that doesn't happen in TC TS because it does. Don't try and get on your high horse Ru or Phlo. I act different on Mag then I do on TC because it's a different server community. Trying to paint me as black or white, when I've been on TC for years, it's just stupid and I'm surprised it's even being tried. Sad joke.

    Thank you Ru. It is very unfortunate that is going on.  In my opinion that represents exactly what Tarnished Coast doesn't want in either a commander or player.  That kind of toxicity creates an environment where decent people don't even want to play.  I recommend blocking those types of individuals and not engaging in trolling.

    I believe the raids for ODIN are back on each week on Wednesday and Thursday. Come join a chill wvw guild with the benefits of being those people who run around whichever map is the most godforsaken and most likely to erupt into a measles like rash of red dots after we take a camp or make gentle innuendos to a sentry. Our fights tend to be on a smaller scale so it's ideal for people like me who have a dsl connection that would make the 1990s blush sometimes. This isn't all the time though, sometimes the raids get big. ODIN is a promiscuous guild (I did say innuendo earlier), you don't need to 100% rep, just join the fun, the smooth jazz and the lack of bitching over nothing.

    Wow, Xar. You actually almost made me cry!   For (close to) four years now I have been very lucky to have made so many friends here and am so grateful to have such an awesome group of people to play with. Thank you.

    I can only comment on my experience being in this guild.  From the start, it has been amazingly fun and laid back.  Flo is an incredibly energetic and enthusiastic leader.  Being in TeamSpeak with the rest of the guild makes you feel like you belong to a group of people who respect you for what you bring to the table, no matter your skill at the game.  Even though I don't talk much, I still like to listen to their friendly, somewhat adult banter.  No one shouts at each other, nobody puts any one down, it really is a come one come all guild.  
    When you get down to it, it isn't about the PPT (points per tick) or the PPK (points per kill) in WvW, it's "did you have fun?"  And the answer is pretty much always a resounding yes.

    @Daniel, I see. 
    @Darkstar - Yeah you definitely understand the feelings and where I am coming from. Thanks for your insight matey. 
    @Father Bliss - During my sabbatical* from TC (first time I'd ever left TC btw) I was able to connect and talk to other people from other servers and get a really good feel for quite a few different aspects of the WvW community and a few other things. I know there are people out there now who want what I want, too. I will find a server that basically has no defined leadership and work from there. Small steps but I am excited nonetheless. 

    You are definitely right people are starting to creep out and enjoy getting involved and playing together in WvW again. That minion master raid last night was great, I was there in the latter part, and I was there at the beginning of Jedi's raid too which was really enjoyable. 

    There are two things I want to make clear: I never wanted to come back to TC and actually be a dictator - like a real asshole - I believe in the concept of being a beneficial dictator and even though it has a stigma, I believe it can work. I paid gems to come back here to properly see what's going on and to get involved in the forums and from there share my ideas. There's nothing wrong with sharing ideas right? I haven't done anything to push anyone out of power or destabilize anything that you guys have been working on. Obviously there was the issue of my language but I swear like an absolute sailor and that's not really going to change - I'm supportive of those who support me and the other players on our server and that's my ethos - obviously it's completely fine to have different opinions and feelings about this. Can't please everyone. I will still be on TC for an unknown period of time, as I get other things set up elsewhere, but I won't be disruptive and won't be poaching anyone or anything like that. So no stress there. 

    Secondly, I'm happy for anyone to quiz me on my server vision, we can leave out the beneficial dictatorship part, and just talk about the other stuff. I think it's pretty good and not because it's something I've magically come up with, it's not, I've tried to take the good things I've seen from servers and communities I've played in and amalgamate them. So if anyone wants to bounce ideas back and forth and chat about such things (hopefully in ts!) I'm your man. 

    *Nobody actually paid me to leave/have a holiday. I left coz TC was stuck in t1 glicko hill and I wanted to see what some other servers were like. I paid for it myself lol.

    @Rexxie  People didn't join comms in the past because several commanders were allowed to maintain an abusive relationship with the TC community where they harassed people in comms and made them feel extremely uncomfortable to join, causing in extreme cases individuals and guilds to leave the server. 
    Thankfully, these abusive individuals have left TC and I hope our community has learned the lesson of allowing people like that to run rampant on our TS.

    Hey Rex. I'm trying to find a place to even suggest where your approach would work. The more fight oriented servers tend to be the type that they think everything they already do is awesome and will rebuke anyone from the outside. A new server without any identity would be ideal. Even the smaller population servers here on the NA side have a strong core who have been supporting their approach to combat for years now. 
    I've been around Aussies more than once. lol.  I get it man, I do. Coming in like a wrecking ball on fire, asking about how the server TS is funded and all that sets people immediately on the defensive around here. You've been around here, you know what it is like and what the guilds have been through. We have had communities descend on us here more than once, roll through and then leave. Right now I think we're in a recovery phase. Which is one of the reasons I came back. Like you I see an opportunity. 
    I will say one thing though. Especially on the NA servers, your time zone (assuming you place OCX) is essential for survival if we want to climb tiers. 
    The best way I've found to get people on TS is show them what you can do. Tearing through a borderland and flipping shit will get people on tag. We do have an issue with people getting on voice comms. Think about it though. These folks just lived through a year of fighting guilds being here and yelling about all manner of crap. Some are obviously worse than others. I think from what I've seen right now people are starting to creep out and enjoy the game again. 
    You could share a bit of what you want to propose too. That might help. Good luck in any case! You'll find regardless of how I operate on the forums, when I hit the field I will fight to the death next to a fellow teammate. And be just as tenacious against a red name too. lol

    Hi Rex. I admire you, truly. There was a time I wanted to do the same thing for my home server of DR. Not launch a jihad on the server but give it leadership and get it in shape in a time when all the server leadership and guilds left. It was gonna be glorious. Deus vult.
    The problem however with running the entire server one way and you mentioned it's to be organized and have fun is that, people have fun in different ways. My guild knows that if they see me in WvW on a roaming character I'm not to be pestered about commanding because that's my time to be alone in wvw and do whatever the hell I want to do (be it flipping camps, taking sentries, dueling out front of spawn, or RP-ing) and that to me is fun in that moment. It helps center me to prevent burnout after a week of commanding.
    My point is you can't force fun on people by having them run a certain way, they'll find it for themselves. Hell for our guild raid yesterday we hosted a Minion Master Zerg and roflstomped everything. The HoD map queue ran from us as soon as they saw us. It was fun. I'm newer to the server so I would say your desire and resolve to help the server is awesome and to use that, and if you can't realize your dream here and decide to leave then best of luck to you, but be wary of trying to force fun, wherever you go, it could backfire on you.

    No I think that's great. Don't forget I still have plenty of friends here and want to see Tc do well. There's other severs for me to build on.
