I think a lot of people get a bit too invested into certain aspects of varying hobbies, whether thats gaming or otherwise. I think some of you need to breathe and relax a little bit lol. Life is too short to throw a fit over everything that you disagree with. Have fun, live a little, relax.
Big +1 to this.
It's always easy to "hate" the people that win, or that run the clans that get the gear.
I play on Sulis, and as some of you may have seen on the forum from time to time, there's historically always been a lot of competition. Me and some of my friends in game never wanted to join the "Dom" clan as we didn't like how it was run. Rather than join and complain about it internally, we always kept to our own generally very small clan grinding hard (far too many hours a day). A couple of our guys started on Nuada when it was released and made some friends there, and convinced some of them to come over to Sulis and join our clan for some competition. After a few months of losing a lot of bosses, after gearing very strategically - and in many ways unfairly - we managed to get a lock down on Gelebron, which after getting a months of Gelebron drops (Including the event) we managed to again gear ourselves well enough to take over BT. The Dom clan didn't really put up much resistance after we overcame them, I guess they weren't used to losing.
Point being is, if you don't like how a clan is run and it truly is unfair, make your own. If you're right you shouldn't have much trouble convincing others of it. You might even enjoy the competition. We even let the leaders of the rival clan that shunned us for years join ours, and are allowed to participate on a drop system that our clannies decided was fair.
