We have a fairly big roster, and at times it can be a bit difficult for me to tell who is who and so on. In games such as this people come and go. People quit, move to different servers, stop playing certain characters, etc, and so it is generally a good idea to try and keep the roster as updated as possible.

Now that the initial rush for the game is past, and we are starting to come out of the holiday season I am going to start pruning the roster of long-inactive accounts. I will also continue to do so on a fairly regular basis. So I am going to start with characters that have not been logged in for over 2 months.

However, I don't want to remove people that plan to continue playing. So if you are taking a break for any reason and plan to return then please follow a few steps to help me keep track of you. First, please respond to this post with a short statement and a possible eta to return (even a sketchy one is fine). Please list all of the characters in the guild that will be affected by this. Then, if you are able, please log in and set up a comment on the guild roster for each of your characters with a message that you are taking a break. If you cannot do this for some reason then just say something to me and I can edit the character message for you.

If you return to the game after a break and find your character has been removed from the guild due to inactivity then just talk to me for a reinvite.


There has also been some talk of limiting alts. Alts are fun, and most of us have at least a couple - so I don't want to ban them at all. However, they can really clog up the roster. So for the moment we are going to limit the guild to 3 characters per person. So that gives you a main and 2 alts. If we need to bump up the amount of alts at a later date then we can.

Also, if you have alts then please do me a favor and edit the guild-roster message for each of your alts with an (alt) tag and the name of your main character and/or your forum name. This will really help me to keep track of who all is who - and it is MUCH easier than keeping a roster post here on the forums.


If anyone has any questions or recommendations about anything mentioned in this post then please feel free to post them. Also, I would appreciate if a mod could sticky this.

The (alt) note is really really important IMO. I like to help lower level people catch up whenever I can, and would rather spend that time helping main-character lowbies rather than alts. Not that I wouldn't help alts, but I think it's more important to help people catch up to the rest.

Leave Ash, Kloc and Iija. Anyone else can be kicked. I'll bring them in as I plan to level them, instead of just doing a "lawlinvite".

My Alt (Thrakburzum) became my primary... and now Agatheron is my alt, and is not actually in Da Waaagh... Granted, I've been playing Order with my brother as a Warrior Priest on Ironrock... or whatever that server is called...

I am out until at least the 1st and since they still don't have anyone in training for this position it may be longer. Can't con them into moving me to a motel with wifi either. Main is Thramack and he will be back as soon as I can get back.
You know if they are "Rare Earth Magnets" why does everyone have them?

Whatever happened with this? Is it set up automatically to kick people after a time? The other night 3 people left the guild at the exact same moment and none had just logged on first. One of them was Authun(sp?) who I saw on a lot lately.

Authun, Sevenshoota and several others left one day of their own accord I think. Either that or they quit. I'm not certain exactly what happene.

In regards to the removal policy, I have not actually removed anyone due to inactivity yet. I do plan to clean-up the roster, and I made this announcement to get people ready for it - I just keep getting side-tracked or forgetting to actually do it.

sort of the opposite for me... I think I never got back in to the guild after the last server jump and I ended up leveling a bit then going on a break. At any rate... after March12, I'll be playing a bit more.. still casual but at least on a weekly basis...

We see a culture that is strong and despise it as crude.

A dumb question but how did you unlock the choppa, from the little I read it seemed like you had to wait till the event finished first.

I'm on a break at the moment, as I don't have a lot of free time. I'll be returning some time in March, but mostly on the weekends.

Hey gang - I'm still alive, just haven't played War in a few months. I do plan to come back, this month or next, life's just been very hectic lately.
So - whenever dem doks finish staplin' yer arms back on Haky, why don't you an yer boyz come down fer a visit. We'll 'av a few squigaritas, throw a few grots around an' discuss who dis 'ere choppa really belongs to...

These Waaaghs are a cross between a mass migration, holy crusade, looting party and pub crawl, with a bit of genocide thrown in for good measure.

You know Nosher's MO, anything he paints blue is automatically his.
