... For Your Mama.

Today, I thought I'd take an Alla moment.

So, I'm going to start selling gil.

Bah dump psshhh.

Seriously though, today something semi-interesting happened between two of my LSes and I found it funny enough to mention here.

Now, usually I don't take part in LS drama. Getting riled up about a little club on the internet is about as retarded as you can get.

Still, I am not above posting the story here.

Then again, I am not above doing very many things.

I'll start with a little bit of background. I was a member of two linkshells, one that I spent the majority of my time in and another whose pearl collected dust in my moghouse.

These two Linkshells were formed around the same time. The first was formed by itself and then, when it got full, someone started an LS for the leftover people.

And thus, it became the leftover linkshell.

And things were good.

For a while.

Slowly, the leader of the leftover linkshell started to get angry. Seems he didn't want his LS to be in the shadow of the other LS.

Of course, he started the damned thing in the shadow, but I don't think that ever occurred to him.

That would have been downright logical.

Hell, the linkshell was actually named after the first one.

Anyway, this anger would boil over occasionally, in the form of LS drama.

Imagine the OC only less retarded.

Actually... It usually was pretty retarded.

Still, the members of the first LS would smile and push that stuff to the side.

I mean, they weren't the ones with the inferiority complex.

Today, though, the shit finally hit the fan.

The leader of the leftover LS snapped and broke the entire shell, citing the unnecessary drama (that he started) that was caused by people thinking of them as a leftover LS (just because it was formed for leftover people).

Now, you'd think this was all major inter-linkshell drama and fighting, that both LSes must have been at each others throats over the whole thing.

Not so much.

Actually, the first LS didn't really give a good damn about the leftover LS one way or the other. They were not technically affiliated, so why would they care?

And the members of what had once been a leftover LS were cool, too. They knew their LS was cool as it was and didn't really care either way.

Seems the only person who got worked up over the whole thing was the leader of the leftover LS. And then decided to break the shell just to start a new shell.

With the same people.

My mind reels.

Now, watching the shell break was of course disheartening. I was choked up.

At least, I would have been had I any human emotions.

Still, looking at that pearl, it was kind of sad to know I'd never use it again.

Then, I realized it freed up some inventory space for crafting.

Yeah, I wasn't really sad after that.

Linkshell drama is always funny and fun to watch as it progresses. It seems like you can never get into a Linkshell without encountering some drama.

Great post, it was certainly different in a very positive way.

My social doesnt really have alot of 'drama'. My HNM shell however is a drama starter. ^^ I love it. Drama keeps things amusing.

Sit back an watch everyone lead the human race or at least vana'diel closer to a complete mental meltdown.

All caused by one person not liking someone else.

LS drama... oh the drama my old LS had half a year ago...

There was going to be a meeting with the Linkshell leader and the people who had a pearlsack, where they were going to discuss the future of the Linkshell; who gets to keep his sack, new rules, etcetra.

The sackless people, me and 6 other people, were having our go in the LS while the sackholders were in a private party.

Suddenly, we got angry words from a few sackholders, only because we were discussing what they could be doing and how we felt left out. Everything that happened in the Linkshell was TOLD in the Linkshell before. I mean, it even stood in the LS message there was going to be a meeting.

After a while, we moved to some other linkshell, which did not last long. My pearl got broken after a few weeks. Around that time, the Linkshell I joined when I started became active again, and all was well again.

I threw the old Linkshell away, seeing as no-one would ever use it again. Yet, my mule still had her pearl and when I checked on it a few weeks ago, the linkshell still excisted, but there only were no people in it.

I had a linkshell break up into two halves because two people had a problem with not getting enough help. The leaders of both LS's made me honorary middle man, and for three months I got the shit end of the stick in this argument. I got insults about the eachother's LS's, and gloating about themselves, and was pulled in opposite directions about which LS to stick with.

Ultimately I decided to go with a different LS entirely!

And as it turns out, the LS that split off from the main LS broke anyway when it's members were too lazy to become an endgame Sky LS.

Pfft. Sky. Give me a break.

Wow, so he finally snapped and did it, eh? You know, I never thought he'd actually get around to doing it...So...Anyone still in it or did everyone just bail?

Oh well, even if I still played it wouldn't affect me too much, I was a member of both shells after all. I just never thought he'd actually do it.

My LS never has drama.

We poke fun at each other, and we're not an HNMLS.

We do have a fun program, it's called the "misguided new adventurer recruitment program"

Once a week, we find some noob who asks alot of questions, and give him all the wrong answers, break his pearl, and set him loose upon the world.

"Yes, I think WAR/SMN is a very good idea, but it cannot match the abilities of a BST/PUP."

Fun times.

LS drama is always hilarious.

I had a pretty good episode of LS Drama a couple months back. In a previous linkshell I was in, everyone had a pearlsack so they could give a pearl to their friends or whatnot. Now the big drawback of that is that were a person so inclined, he could kick anyone they wanted to. We had a guy completely lose his mind over something mega-retarded (a friend of his had logged off with his two electrum rings, which aren't very hard to replace if you absolutely need them) and he threw a HUGE hissy-fit and started booting everyone. He wiped out everyone in the LS in about thirty seconds, and then called a GM on every single person in the LS for "being rude to him". Now, there was over twenty members in the LS, and he put out a GM call for every single one individually. needless to say, we didn't see him at all over the course of the following 72 hours...

The rest of us reformed the Linkshell, and created a special event-only LS that we renamed in the Moron's honor, making sure to add the suffix "thetardzor.

Nothing interesting happens in any of my ls's. All boring and everyone gets along.

Mindyou, Seraph in general seems boring compared to what i read happening on other servers.

oh here's something you might be able to answer [GM] Dave. Myself and someone else called a GM last night. Same reason. The GM who answered my call was 'don't give a shit, stop wasting my time' but the GM who answered the other persons call treated it as relevant and thanked him for reporting it.

I was told no action can be taken.
The other guy was told, yeah we will do something about it.

So... why is this? How can the same thing be a waste of time according to one GM and I'm wrong to report it. And at the same time another GM takes the exact oposite opinion.

Maybe it's small inconsistancies like this that cause your constant waste of time calls.

Sad to hear what happend to the LS since it was the very first one I had.

It was fun and many people helped each other. Even some memebers from the original LS claimed it was more fun than the real deal.

But, this was bound to happen since the "Leftover" LS was always seen like, well... a Leftover LS.

People didn't like the title the LS had and started to leave or "trascend" to the next one. Kind of stupid if you ask me.

Anyways it was fun 'til it lasted.
