Title: Anniversary party


Golden arm42 - May 2, 2009 09:09 PM (GMT)
To be perfectly honest, Iíve got to admit this anniversary party was one of the most disappointing things Iíve ever been a part of in AL. I wanted this to be the best event weíve ever had; right now, I could cry about it. We can blame some of our allies (actually everyone except TZ) for not showing up, but most of all, this should illuminate us as a clan.

I donít know how much of this feeling is simply because I was expecting too much. I donít know if the let-down Iím feeling is because I expected grandeur or if itís because it really was lame. But what I saw today wasnít worthy of a clan at all, certainly not one of our caliber. Iím not going to assign blame or get aggressive because itís over and done with. Iím just so disappointed in what this event could have been and what it should have been, compared to how it actually turned out.

I canít understand how someone in a clan isnít pumped for an event like this. Perhaps itís hard to understand the significance of a one-year milestone if you havenít been here for pretty much the whole time uninterrupted like Lamb, Fivey, 3mon, and I have. I donít know if thatís the case or not, but either way, our lack of interest showed. The Bandos event, the Stealing Creation event, the KQ trip, the FOG trip, the rev hunt, all attracted less than five people. What kind of party is that? I donít see thereís anything to be proud of there.

You know, an anniversary isnít like a war. Thereís no such thing as ďjust anotherĒ anniversary. An anniversary may never happen again. AL might not be around for another year. To have todayís weak effort to be the only anniversary we have, for it to supposed to be the most meaningful event of our existence and yet turn out so poorly, is more disappointing to me than I can describe.

Iím feeling in the dumps about it right now, but rate, hate, discuss.

Just wondering.... how many non-active members are there? Like when we had our war against you at the very beginning(before we merged) we had 2 people show. I then learned I needed a way to root out non-active players. Maybe require all people to go to an event within the next month?

BTW: If I could play I would have spent ALL DAY at an event like this. Why do events like this attract the crowd?

i completly agree!!!!!! even though we had maybe 5 or 6 ppl show for rev and fog. idk bout the mbmer events, even though lamb was po-ed cuz noone would go, and i understand he kept asking and asking, and noone even said anything, i obvously couldnt go otherwise i would. i am sorry for how this turned out, i really think it s=could have, and should have been better. i was at every f2p event for this. but i had fun with the ppl that came to stuff though. i had a blast, but i oculd have definately had a bettter time. i hope we do have another anniversary next year cuz this clan rocks! :wub:

I was to pvp trip which was a fail turnout but turned to be fun (even tho i died but it was my fault since i went back to the other clan 3 times after they left me alone.. :rolleyes: ) then i went to fog for 1 game (woot?) and then rev hunt and than FFA clan wars which was failure.. Woulda been fun to have a great spamtrain in the end but only a few people showed up and some of the few that came didnt even spam.. Pretty disappointed right there


But all together, i liked this and i hope we can do it again in a year :wub:

Wasn't home all day. You guys better come rev hunting tommorow.

tomilson21 - May 2, 2009 11:36 PM (GMT)
Honestlty i felt bad for lamb today he was having to beg people to go to kq and when everyone ignored him he tried to change it to kbd and still no one was willing to even respond to him. lordblack and I were both there during this and tried to help. I wont be a member till next week >.< so i couldnt attend those events even tho i really wanted to especially the Kq and Bandos. I went to the Pk trip and drop party i tried to make it to the rev hunt but couldnt. The thing that makes me mad is that people just flat out didnt come to things its not that they couldnt come they just didnt. I mean really it's one day that u didnt train it's not gunna kill u. [BEEP]

That was an absolutely terrible moment for me. I'm BEGGING people to come to these events and some people couldn't even be bothered to reply to my questions, let alone show up. :angry: Far from a happy moment for me. :no:

Yes, I do feel bad for what happened today, and partially because I didn't go to most of it :( . From what I did go to, it was fun, but it could of been so much better if we had more people go. Here's a list of things that I think went good and bad throughout the event...

Things That Went Well

- One of our allies, TZ, actually participated in most of it. LTH made a showing at some of the other events, but sadly we're "blown off" in their perspective.

- Most events went according to plan. Did well here, stuck to the time schedule for the most part.

- Large amount dropped at drop party, though we didn't get a thing from it :angry: Drop parties fail big time now.

Things That Went Wrong

- Members that were on didn't go to events. I was one of the many who didn't participate in some, and I know there are others.

- ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT GIVEN TO LEADERS! They worked hard for AL to be around for a year, and we can't take that for granted. This is what I'm most shameful about because I also didn't give respect where it was supposed to be given. I'm terribly sorry for that :(

- Boss trips were ultimate fail from what I have heard, from Lamb beggin those to come and from no one going period to the first few. I think we need to just drop the subject of boss trips altogether unless spontonaeously planned, in which more people will actually go.

That's what I saw how this event went. Hopefully we can get out of this rut of ours with not showing up to events or having unsuccessful events and actually look more like a worthy clan.

my mum kicked me off the computer before the fog event... i wanted to stay on but my mum not let me :(

blompty2 - May 3, 2009 06:53 AM (GMT)
i came kq but there was only lamb there while thers like 20 peeps in cc. why dont we make the next boss event mandatory!

Lamb Bug - May 3, 2009 12:40 PM (GMT)
It kinda ruins the event when you are forcing people to go. We were hoping that people had the pride to not have to be forcably dragged to events to celebrate our first year. :'(

Kerkennah - May 3, 2009 02:37 PM (GMT)
This is what I don't get, why people online don't want to come to events. For me, if i'm online and I can go to an event, I will because I like to have fun with my friends, seems as if some people think that gaining some xp is more important than spending some time with friends.

Dudes, I seriously tried to do stuff but crap kept coming up. I got all the way to roaches and my comp froze. Then, the instant I got back on my gf called wanting to eat some lunch. I killed like 5 roaches. So, then I was like let's do some Stealing Creation. Got all the way there, waited for 15 minutes for everyone watching games start without me, then when the three people got there I had to leave again. <_<

And my bro was completely abandoned in this event guys. He doesn't even know if he wants to be in this clan right now, but still wanted to do some stuff with everyone. He died at Bandos, and everyone left! He said some non-clan member blessed his stone for him. Then, I dragged him to SC, had to leave, and he said that the other two guys that were there just up and left him too.

I apologize for not being there, but I really tried and so did my bro.

I'm sorry I didn't show, Sunday's are really busy now and I had so much homework and music pratctice to do I didn't get on the computer til after dinner. <_<
Plus, the latest event was 7 am for me, and that was the drop party so if I made that it wouldn't have made too big a difference. =/
Still, I should have gotten up earlier for it. Sorry that I didn't. :(

CyberianWolf - May 6, 2009 04:37 PM (GMT)
Sry guys! Usually excuses = Working.

Lamb, Golden....This sounded like an awesome event. I hope you don't lose your drive and you host another in the future. :yes:

I would like to ask our members that were on, Why did you not come? Especially after being asked (or begged)? :blink:
Although I was not there, it does sound very disrespetful. :no:

CWolf :sunglasses:

Yea, I think this started about 1 Am for about half of Lth. :s Then we had three wars scheduled that day.

As attendance from Lethality I admit I'm dissapointed that no one went. Half of clan was probably sleeping, but the other half was on. Many of our members blow off mandatory events, such as wars or inter clan practies, so you can't expect too many of us to go.

Since i was reading this topic, i found the annivercery was very disappointing and failer, and even if you were clan member for 1 day you should have came insted of gaining xp. I would have come but im not member neither was i in clan before. :no: :( :angry: <_< :|

Techy - May 24, 2009 08:02 PM (GMT)
Ding, ding, ding! Winner! Congrats, unoob, you just posted on an old topic again. [/sarcasm]
