That should make it easier for those who already have a hard time getting tags. Why not use private messages or word it differently so as to not sound so elitist?
I understand playing with those who you have come up through the layers with. I am sure it is much easier for you getting tags and not having failed missions with said group.
It just sounds insulting to everyone else, specially those who might need that tag. No need to throw it in peoples faces that you are not interested in playing with them, except as extra bodies to fill in for your friends that can't make it.
I am no vet, but since I have been playing here I have never seen so much cliquishness as I have since the Friday-night-Nessus-crowd formed. To be fair, it is a few giving "the crew" a suspicious name, because I know some of "the crew" make an effort to include others.
But still, there is a growing blacklist of people with whom some of "the crew" will not allow on hell runs.
... and maybe I have now positioned myself one step closer to that blacklist for saying the unpopular truths that people like to keep hidden.
well, we partied alot, and we have no private forum. i see this as the appropriate place to post, it's called party scheduling.
There are ways to get a group together without blatantly alienating others.
-Make yourself a forum... it's very easy to do. Some groups have already done this.... -Send PM's to your 'usual crew' -When you end one run, plan the next run with 'your crew' before you all exit for the night.
You have several options which do not extend an elitist tone.
- Form a guild and get a guild thread on this very forum. - Find a FREE message board and invite those you find acceptable to party with. - Personal Messages. It is an amazing resource.
True this is a "party scheduling" forum. That does not mean you will not insult others with your condescending attitude by posting about a run only certain people can join. I think if you look back on many of the runs posted here it is often mentioned that those signing up will be given priority...regardless of whether or not you are in the "in" crowd.
Try to remember there are others on the server who need tags...not just you or your friends. A little common sense would tell you that if you can't get all your favorite friends to join you that you might end up needing some of the folks you have recently insulted to try and get your run going.
When those not in the "in" crowd visit the party scheduling forum they have an expectation of having a shot at joining a "publicly" posted run. That is the difference between a "public" and a "private" forum. Get a "private" one and you can ignore the rest of us all day long.
What's the big deal? i repeat this is a party scheduling forum. it's not only for forming parties and posting for people to sign up, but also gathering the players you know. I enjoy playing with regular players i play with, i see no big deal
