As proven by the fact that guilds who are not raiding guilds, and which have never stepped into the ToV competitive scene killed some dragons. Problem is it took them 4 days to do it, and none of them even attempted to dungeon crawl, which was the focus of their original complaints.

A/A is not rotating trak, and doesn't rotate draco... there are a total of 3-4 targets that A/A don't race each other for right now due to how many petitions stemmed from just those encounters. more misinformation from those a self proclaimed know it all. Its only hypocrisy to the uninformed, like you. What is funny though is even though its apparently common knowledge that A/A are rotating some things, these other guilds like CSG or rustle haven't even tried to capitalize on the fact that the A/A response will be slower than usual.
The skill involved in killing dragons isn't related to any one player pushing a button, it's related to the coordination between the 50 players pushing buttons. With enough setup time this becomes trivial for most mobs, as evidenced by the casual guilds killing mobs after 4 days+.

The skill required for coordination becomes greater when you have to insta-pull mobs with low player numbers as people are logging in. It would get even greater if the insta-pull made a comeback with the new leash mechanics.

Yes, the fact that the casuals haven't even contested the rotated mobs when they're left up for hours shows how bad an idea implementing this stupid lockout mechanic was.

Oh and on Aftermath we have a 10% raid attendance requirement to get loot. 10%.... That's 2 raids per week and a total of about 30 minutes of play time.
It got lowered to 10%? Thats 30 day right?

I may have to pop in and collect some pixels..

You know what great about all this....it used to drop more in classic!! lol! They actually lowered the drop rate on "classic" p99.

Anyway, maybe if you had to clear a dungeon 2-3 times a week it would be worth sticking around for. But the concept of staring at walls at least 1-2 days a week for years? lol...

That's not a playstyle it's a mental illness.
Anyone who plays EQ (p99 specifically) suffers from some level of brain malfunction. Its a deep time sink that only the afflicted can really appreciate. Calssic EQ was fun because you could not realistically get certain items and that made getting them feel more special - P99 = classic. QQ more

hehe finally beat it down to the typical "you dont know what you are talking about or how the raid scene works" bullshit rhetoric which is pretty standard from the aftermath forum cheerleaders which incidentally seems to be the same 2-3 people always

Anybody who has raided here more than a month know how it works

Before the a/a agreement on CT we never saw a golem kill on a respawn. Since they don't contest each other and draco is more important, it's real easy to snipe golems.

Again, 10% raid attendance means you don't have to stare at a wall for 1-2 days a week. Depending on your class you may just have to log in and do it for 20minutes every week to make the attendance minimum.

The RNG involved in drops has always been part of EQ. Not sure what bitching about that has to do with this servers raid scene.

You waited until someone was suspended.. what does a ST primal have to do with anything though? 95% of the ST keys in rustle were gotten without rustle.. How many of the 3 golems does rustle compete for again?
