There are right ways and wrong ways to apply to guilds. Personally I take offense to someone applying to my guild as well as others at the same time (not everyone has that same opinion). I’m also HEAVILY against someone applying to a guild when they already have a guild. That’s neither here nor there.
I was going to try and paraphrase what was said… but I wouldn’t do it justice. Below is several images I’ve chopped up and cropped to make it more friendly to the blog. Things I’ve cut are guildchat, random channel chat, things not pertinent to the conversation.
By the time I decided to make a post about this applicant I had already been speaking to him for a short bit… long enough that I lost the beginning of the conversations in my chat log.
Prior to the images he had asked about joining the guild. 98% of everyone in Relentless has gone through the same process, they applied on the website and then got an invite after speaking with myself or one of the coleads. I told him to post an app and he told me he doesn’t do that. That his DPS is so amazing (on the server he wants to transfer from) that they talk about him in trade channel, they sing his praises, but he’s to modest and ignores it. I wish I had a screenie from when he said that. I nearly crap’d myself.
Anyway, it is fine to brag on yourself a bit when applying, saying you do 8k dps raid buffed is a good useful thing to hear. Links to WWS or other reports are more helpful and don’t read as bragging at all. He just kept going on and on and on though… eventually I just said the guild is full…
