Default A Message from Lineage to the Green Community

Hello everyone on the Green server. We know there has been a lot of speculation as to why Lineage had left the UN last Friday, so we are submitting this statement to clear the air.

To quickly recap the circumstances leading to our exit on Friday, an earthquake was triggered around midday and our limited force available during those hours was looking for a target. After looking at what the other guilds were doing, we noticed CI was forming up to go into Hate for their regular clear schedule and reached out to join forces and make an attempt for Inny. This was on the fly and we banded together as allies. It was an exciting moment for us and something I am sure we'd all like to see on Green for the community as a whole. An incident occurred with a competing guild and we lost the opportunity.

Our response is not about a desire to obtain free loot or complain about competition, nor were we particularly upset about losing the race to Inny, but more the manner in which it occurred, and how the aftermath was handled. I hope the subsequent actions taken by Lineage demonstrate this is not about a desire for instancing or desire to remove competition which, incidentally, is what the UN actually provides with the rotational content (simulated anyway).

The complete indifference to the Green community, the derisive response afterward, and the willful steamroll of the minority is the point of contention. So the question then becomes; Why remain a participant in a body that seemingly does not value the community and its members to foster friendly competition? I suspect that is why this action may appear confusing to the UN. No rules were broken, and Lineage has left the UN anyway. We don't know if a rule can be made to prevent this behaviour or to make people care about each other and the community. As crazy as it sounds there are a lot of people on Green that really do care about this game and the people that play it.

So to set the record straight, we are not upset, nor are we greedy, or shying away from the competition. Lineage does not see a benefit to the UN in its current form, and we are welcoming anyone who wishes to compete or collaborate.

ST act like friends because they only do so since they are in the dominating position, but whenever there is a rat race...they dont care one minute what happens and their true colors come out. Only winning. And if they dont win, it must be something the other raid force did! Oh and forget about apologies! Concession concession!

Oh and lately has anyone heard of them using line of sight tricks on pulling! Got scared on a potential lost FTE and had to go ghetto pull inny . Did it on Sunday too and trained fed force who alreay had line of sight on inny (and pulling down to first floor, no yellow text).

It literally sounds like you are doing all these things?

Can you elaborate? It's hard to form an opinion when I don't even know the problem you're trying to solve.
