Title: Shortprep warring


Golden - July 29, 2009 02:35 PM (GMT)
So, apparently we've been having a couple of miniwars in the last few days, and I'm glad to see we did really well and got some good wins. What I am not happy to see is the cavalier attitude by some people towards these shortpreps. When someone (warlord, at least two council, or leader) calls a short-prep, it is an official war. Not showing up because you can't be bothered is really disappointing. You can finish your quest later, you can go back to spiders or bandits later -- but you can't fight the war later. It's not fair for the rest of the clan to suffer because you're letting them down by not bothering to show up. <_<

Sadly this is happening more than more often, when kevin or lit make a short preparation, there is always someone who says he doesnt have equipment or is too busy to come...

I always come if im on, despite what im doing, i even offer food and lend a weapon if any member needs, so i just dont know why most people say they cant be come because they have no gear <_< (already made a topic about this)

Also those who say they cant come because they are too busy, id like to know what you are soo busy doing, since this is a game and so you cant be too busy while playing.

people without full rune shud have a set.
Its disspointing and i'm glad the leaders are dealing with this.

idk whats so bad about short preps they are fun and give you time to hang out with your fellow clanmates and get some war experience and show what you have to offer warwise....ive been to all the short preps that happened when i was on even if i had stuff to do (in game) and idk whts so hard about spending 100k on full rune... ;)

> not 100k, nick... 200k.
> I suggest:
> People without rune sets can miss one or two short-prep, but you are to come for the third time, or else, you'll get a warning and will have caps removed. Although you shouldn't even sell your rune set (one of our requirements is to always keep a rune set available), we can be understandable. Just do not make this a habit. <_<
> People doing quests: It depends. There are a few select quests/activities that can't allow people to leave and come back at the point stopped. This is understandable. Hence on that case only, you are allowed to miss one short-prep war.
> All the other situations requires you to attend to the short-prep war.

Like yesterday, we were having a practice and about 3 people wanted to come, so me and Lit basically had to boss the rest into coming.

im never going to go to a short prep war unless im really bored. i just dont see the need to. sorry. so stop giving me [BEEP] bout it ur not making me go.

Kevinsaurus - July 29, 2009 10:50 PM (GMT)
they're mandatory... they give you a chance to practice more and implore strategies and tactics we may want to try for hte first time and gives yo chances to work on tactics already instilled into our warring techniques to help. i'll help u improve ur warring in any way u can but u need to come.

Lord - July 29, 2009 11:04 PM (GMT)
hmmmmmmmmmmmm, lets see, i still really dont care, i made a deal with arthur so ill go every other 3 starting now lol. otherwise ill only go if im super bored =) and want to. so stop pissing me off in the chat, stop bugging me about it, stop calling me out and me only, im not the only [BEEP]ing 1 seriously. leave it be! damn you guys i just dont know sometimes. and its only certain ppl. some ppl say it once, then stop, others wont [BEEP]ing stop badgering me about it, it has to stop now!!!!!!! im tired of it.

Emm...no! :huh: You're not making a deal or anything. Let me spell this out. <_<

Short-prep wars (assuming more than half of the CC wants one and a leader/warlord/two council gets one) are OFFICIAL and MANDATORY. If you do not attend these wars, you will lose CAP and possibly rank if it remains an issue. If more than half the members in the CC want a war, you are OBLIGATED to attend those wars because no one else should be hostage to your can't-be-bothered attitude. :no:

I don't know what on earth your problem is, because you've always been a laid-back and cool guy, but you definitely need a chill-pill.

In addition to what Golden said, if you care about your clan mates you surely are willing to waste 30 minutes of your Runescape time and come have some fun with us while improving everyone's warring. Having a member that can come but doesn't want to spoils everyone's fun, since we could need one more person to match the teams or whatever.

As I told you (but you probably didn't see as you have me on ignore), people should see Senior Members as an example to follow. Lately with your attitude you have been everything but that I'm afraid. :|

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I hope this clears everyone's doubts about Short-Preps, and that I see you at our next one. ;)

Lord - July 30, 2009 02:12 PM (GMT)
golden i am a laid back guy. its just some ppl are annoying the hell out of me and pissing me off. but those 2 ppl are on my ignore list so im good now. and all those wars we had, i didnt go for 2 reasons
1) i was cutting so i could get dharoks.
2) i didnt have rune armour.
thats it. and kevin, i rofl at that cuz ur the only reason im getting mad, stop bugging me! u say it once, i say no, let it be. i wouldnt get mad if you would say wars and stuff to other people, it just always seems to be me that ur bugging and i have no clue why. so stop now. i will go to other wars though, cuz they asked, they're not telling me. stop and lit, stop pissing me off and ill set an example, jeezalo. and btw, everything thaty happened ima forget tmrw so theres kinda no point.

Im not going to comment on the rest, but this i can say its not true...

We always asked nicely if you wanted to come. We didnt really force you to come, but its just that after missing 3 short prep in a row people start to notice and start getting a bit mad.

Its not we have anything against you Lord.

Lord - July 30, 2009 03:15 PM (GMT)
bull [BEEP]!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ever since day 1 i said no i was busy, you were ramming it down my throat, maybe not u exactly, but kevin and a couple others.

King Arthur - July 30, 2009 09:30 PM (GMT)
> As for the deal we made, Lord, it'd still needed to be taken to Leaders, nothing got set by that time.
> As for the short-prep warring rule, well... Now everything is clarified now... You either go, or you either go.
> Seeing you left AL, it seems you won't go at all :P
