I have never been the most active member of Alea Iacta Est, but I have been quite happy to be a member. I have two characters there, one 80, and a nice collection of heirlooms that I did a paid character transfer in order to send over there. Needless to say, I wasn’t pleased to read:
We will be introducing a new, hard cap of 600 members in a single guild for Cataclysm. – Mumper
Neither are my fellow AIE members:
We would like to convey to you our very strong dislike to your announcement of limiting guilds to a 600 member hard cap. – Alea Iacta Est
I do get it: AIE breaks the whole guild leveling thing. But the thing is, that is your problem, not ours. I don’t really care about inter-guild competitions, anyway. That isn’t a part of the game that interests me. Just like last week, this is an attempt to re-shape the game, but instead of doing it in a nuanced and positive way, this is a “we are going to break functionality and you can’t do anything about it” method. Even if I weren’t a member of a guild that is being affected, I would oppose this move as totally self-serving on Blizzard’s part.
Two Complains in Two Weeks! I sure hope this doesn’t keep up.
