    Why would others trying to kill a mob ruin your fragile sense of self worth? Seriously.
    Nothing is stopping you from getting your guild to raid them on test to learn the encounters.

    Then its just a matter of finding it up during your playtime, mobilizing and executing the strat.

    For future reference don't ever consider anything out of your reach or impossible without considering every possible option, if makes you look stupid on top of already coming across like a whiny butt-hurt faggot.

    in all honesty i believe Avatars actually killed EQ2. everyone knows there is a real lack of stability in the population and it stems from Avatars. I have no real issue with them, and they serve as a great "bragging rights" goal, but thats as far as they should ever go with them. You want to show your elitism and say you got them on lockdown for 9 months, then so be it. But there shouldnt be any loot attached to that.

    Its a well known fact that only 1% of the entire community will ever see this content. Once a guild has them locked they usually stay that way. IN the rare event that guild gets "dethroned" they also end up breaking apart and thier members either /ragequit or server transfer. Its also because of these Avatars that you have the most server motion even if the guild doesnt fall apart or get dethroned as people will tend to get bored and want a new guild just because theres no new content for them to conquer.

    Not to mention all the wasted loot that gets absorbed into nothingness, muted or dropped on an alt. An Avatar raid guild probably has 30ish members, maybe low 40s (sorry its been awhile, best estimate). Especially with the new triple spawns (good, evil, nuetral) and the short timers (whats it like 1-3 days now instead of 7-9? ), those members easily get what they want in a months time. After that its all just as useless as collection rewards. I believe the spirit behind the idea was to get what you want then move the fuck on. Im pretty sure thats the only reason more spawns were added was to make them more available to the rest of the population, not to add more time wasted for one guild so they dont have to go back into the instanced raids.

    When you alienate 99% of your population (HAHAHAHAHAA, alienate? wtf) you cant very well go around wondering why they are all quitting. And its the playerbase that controls that, not SOE or development. In other words, its very lonely at the top. If you want competition, then back the fuck up and let someone try. When noone else gets pulls you cant exactly say youre the best. Best =/= Only. To be the best you have to actually be better than someone else, not be the only one doing something. 1st place in a one man race :P Its like bragging about bringing home the gold medal in the special olympics.

    So in summary, if SOE has an desire at all to save this game, the best they can do is make contested for bragging rights alone, not for loot whores. I guarantee the interest in the game will start to rise when the population isnt actually missing out on the very best of the best loot. You dont see that contested bullshit pulled in other "not to be named here" game/s that are very successful.
    Dumbest post lately. I just bolded the dumb stuff so you can figure it out yourself whats dumb about it.

    so.. even if i dont give a damn about avatars i just read this whole thread.

    but what is this "lockdown" you are talking about? isnt it just the first guild that tags the mob that gets him? like any other outdoor npc, first to hit it get it.

    and i have a hard time thinking any guild on nagafen is "lockdowning" avatars or am i wrong? since you could just go kill the shit out of them when the engage.

    I don't think it would ruin anything for them at this point, I'm sure everyone in guild and their alts have about everything they want.

    But for people to not even try is kinda lazy. At least on EF Exo is euro time so we at least get a chance to pull them during normal raid time if they're up.

    Its true. On Befallen nobody else even tries. When Stonestrong was still playing he offered to give out the strats and spawn times of the avatars, and still nobody tried...

    I killed mischief on pickup on Splitpaw. Most fun i have ever had playing this game made all the more satisfying as Validus, the only avatar killing guild on the server turned up just in time to see it.
    Granted they have beat me to every one since but i am still having a great time chasing em around trying to get lucky. Even better was when i made them all get up at 10am on sunday morning when i was trying to form one for War =D
    Avatar's are good for the game imo. You always need something to try and strive for or, apart from the social aspect, there would be no point playing this game.
