    Default Reminder of Wow's panda Usurper AKA Guild Dethrone Feature

    Hey. When you go to unsubscribe, not that you will, but one day in the distant future...Blizzard created a brand new evil feature that it didn't advertise The Usurper AKA: Guild Dethrone Feature.
    You personally spend thousands and thousands of gold on your guild. Tens of thousands of hours. Then, if you spend 30 days unsubscribed, the next highest guild member in points gets an auto in-game email request to accept ownership of your guild.
    It's not pretty. No one wants to talk about it. But good old happy drama loving Blizzard likes to cause problems, because it's epic cool to go flame on the forms and try to fix things. So, much hate & discontent, but it's free advertising for them I guess. Like a rap star that gets free press for going to jail.
    Guild can NOW not be disbanded after a certain level also. This means the Deadly Panda Killing Klan219 can be taken over by pandas, etc.
    So...when you are done playing WoW, plan to kick everyone out of the guild before you leave the game for any period over 30 day. There is no other way around this beautiful drama mama fun fest. Why they do this evil stuff? Again, because we are here today talking about it. Free ad space, I guess.
    Hey, good luck in there guys. Take care man.

    I believe that the dethrone option kicks in at 6 months. Unless it has been changed.

    Wth did I just read?
    This is rambling, disjointed and comes across, as Barks said, disgruntled ex-GM.

    There is no context, no idea of any kind of background to it.
    Also for the "dethrone" option?
    It is only the 3 guild ranks below GM can initiate it.

    And he has zero punctuation. It's a madman wall of text. And I've seen him troll comment threads on the main page too. So…
    Troll?

    Nah, man. It's a plot. Blizzard wants to make money by upsetting people. That's why they kept this such a closely guarded secret by the masterstroke of telling everyone. Cos it's TOO crazy, yeah? No-one would believe it.

    Here's a thought. If you're worried about your officers taking all the gold and disbanding at the first opportunity, maybe don't make them officers? And if you're planning to take long breaks leaving no-one in charge, maybe don't be a GM?

    It's actually me posting under a pseudonym, in an attempt to get my members to deflower me. Or whatever.

    I literally lolled but isn't it defrocked or something? Maybe that's just heads of mega-guilds like the catholics.

    I know the meaning of taking someone's flower (deflower) in America, but assuming epic is mostly male I doubt dari would want that.
