I was trying to stay out of this discussion for a while because my approach is not to get involved in internet politics, but some of the things said here really pushed me over the edge.
Before I start I would like to ask some questions for you reader to answer yourself.
1) If you would spend 4 hours of your life after midnight (like from 11pm to 3am) when you have 4 hours of sleep left after, before you have to wake up for 9 hour work shift… would you want to share your benefits with someone who did nothing and in hunt sits in a local just to reap benefits?
2) For how long you think LordLouis will finance such campaigns with no returns?
3) Do you really think this fight would be public if LordLouis had the numbers to kill the dragon on his own? (you were there to do the dirty job)
Who I am? I would say I am probably the youngest member of this, how some of you call “Deli cartel” or “elitist group”. I am playing Wurm for less than a 1/2 year… Yes, I did know about the conditions for application from day one… but it has never been a secret also. And what I did? I worked from the day one, grinding the skills required to be accepted. I have spent countless hours brutally grinding specific skills I didn’t even like (for example two handed weapons… I would rather chose longsword + shield). But in same time I understand and accepted the rules because I understood the reasons. Max DPS in slaying’s. Yes, I was working hard to be accepted (like in real life… you have to work hard to get something)
What surprises me the most here is how many people is expecting the benefits without any responsibilities. Is this how you live? Live off of benefits without doing any work? and do you than judge those who have worked hard to become what they are? No one is preventing anyone from finding and slaying the dragon. In all the hunts I have been participating I have seen only one other group that has been doing the searching…
About this group some of you say is elitist… I am far from being elite… I barely fit in the requirements. I have basic plate armour set that barely fit the requirements… I have one sword… and horse that was gifted. I am eating food that is gifted (water thankfully is free from the lake),… but I am in this group and I have participated in all the hunts since I was accepted. I skipped nights out with friends to hunt for dragons… and it is not because it is requested from me, it is because I chose to do it for the common goal. And many others did the same from this you’re called “Elitist group”. So don’t f****ng dare to say I am in some way an elite… I chose to work for what I want not request any entitlements.
Why does this group gets most of the uniques on Deli? because all of us here chose to work together to find them and hunt them. Many people from the group are jumping online and searching for the uniques when they spawn, spending silver to restrain it and organise the killing. Thats why we get most of them… because we chose to do something...
After every hunt all the loot is sold and profits are split equally between all who participated in the hunt… equally… not in some random lottery where rules change after the kill…
How many of you participated in the last kill and found out that you were not participating in the lottery because you went home and didn’t stick in the local? Who did really get all the benefits from last fight?
We even vote on time when the killing will happen for the most players to be able to participate and get the benefits. Odynn does not say when the killing will happen… he has the same vote like everyone else in the group (not much of an elite either… isn’t it?) The fact that I can freely say that (contradicting some other statements in this thread from other players) proves that if you as a person are not a prick you are equal and have your free opinions. No one is kicked out for having a constructive opinion.
Even here when someone tries to challenge what happened in the last fight they were called names and accused to be ungrateful (by the supreme leader) because they were expecting what they were promised. In my time in what some of you call this “Deli cartel” I have never heard such rude attitude towards any member…. there had been some personal misunderstandings/discussions but never ever anyone has treated any other member as a lower being.
People… Please… think for yourselves and don’t listen to everyone who jumps on the stage, drops a banana and yells “Make America great again”… think for yourselves and don’t let false prophets fool you. In my personal opinion LordLouis is your average politician who comes up with a lot of promises before election (I would love to see how he delivers on his promises). for those who was in the first lines…. was the scale share fair for your effort when there was tons of alts in local who did nothing? would you rather chose to get fair share for your work?
Thats it.. I’m out of breath…
To everyone… here is a conditions for joining and they are not a secret… they are there for fairness so everyone who are willing to work get their fair share and avoid freeloaders. In my opinion it is a fair system…
