It has come to my attention that there are people that think that we're a dead corp and that we never do anything as a corp together. First of all, yes, there are times where the TS server is rather quiet and we're aware of the times where that is the case. It's mostly in the late afternoon between 4-7pm EST. The reason is that we don't have enough East Coast players from that time slot. It's something we're slowly changing. As a matter of fact, the server has seen more and more activity with every passing week.
Second, we've already restarted doing 12 mans. We've ran over 8 hours of 12 mans over the past week. Now, it's not our fault that the people that think this way chose not to check their facts before talking shit about their own corp and we can't control that. But, if they actually took the time to LOOK for themselves to see if we're running 12 man groups, instead of sitting in Smoke Jaguar's TS3 server talking trash about us, they would know how wrong they are.
Now, I don't mind if someone leaves because they don't feel this is the place for them. I can see how that would be the case and I hold no grudges about it. In fact, this is a game that you're supposed to enjoy and you are entitled to do everything that you can to make it so. What I do mind is you spreading false information to other members, luring them to an other TS3 server and talking trash about us. As far as I'm concerned, that makes you a spineless worm. A snitch. And an eternal Malcontent. You expect people to entertain you. You wanted to do 12 mans? Great, why didn't you join us when we were doing them? You were in the TS3 server and there were 12 people, why didn't you start a 12 man group since you wanted to do 12 mans so badly? So far, what I can see is that you want to do 12 mans but you're not willing to put any effort into it. You're willing to do 12 mans but you're not willing to lead them. You want to do 12 mans but really, what you want is to have an easy victory. What we have, on the other side, is people that are willing to do 12 mans but unable to because they don't yet have the proper mechs, they're willing to sacrifice their time so that others might enjoy the game and we have people that poured their hearts and souls and earnings into the corp. Not only have we remained an active corp when others are closing down, merging to survive or going into inactivity, but we've also returned to per-split numbers in record time. So no, we're not a dead corp. Far from it, we're a hungry bear coming out of hibernation.
In terms of not doing 12 mans as much as some would want to, there are a few reasons. First and foremost, there is no reason to have a crazy competitive guild when the only prize to have is nothing. That tends to be bad for business. Second, if you turn the game into a job, people will leave, unless they're unemployed and have little to no ambitions in life, then they'll become pro-MWOers, most of us have jobs and families and lives to also take care of so you know what side of the fence we sit on in this regard. Thirdly, people want to do 12 mans but really they don't want to lead, that puts a lot of pressure on the people that have to lead them, that makes them burn out, that's what happened to 2 previous corp leaders, you have to be retarded to expect me to be insane enough to repeat this mistake. If you want 12 mans, organize it and run it. It's like getting a car but expecting someone else to drive it for you. People who want to do 12 mans, and I mean who really want to, already organize them, it's not our fault you're too busy sucking up to others and talking shit about your own corp to them to even notice what's been going on in your own back yard.
Now, I'm not sure if the person whom this concerns will even read this, I'm not sure if they even come on the forums anymore, but I still put this out there so that facts are put in front of everyone, so that none of my thoughts are kept private and so that people know what I'm thinking and so people see that the Crows' leadership has not wavered from it's mission to keep the Carrion Crows a relevant and attractive place to be.
