Shalom frens! Do you remember <Wight Power>? Well, now we're kosher so we changed our name <Strawberry Puppy Kisses>. You may have heard of us from world chat or discord, or ingame where we might have killed you if you chose the wrong faction. Though our deeds are legendary, there's a lot of misunderstanding floating about around us, so i'm here to clear that up: We're a group of frens that's been playing ever since the og TBC came out, many years ago. Between us, we have well over 100 years of WoW experience, a good portion of that being only TBC on various other servers. We know every encounter in the game, every entry in the db, every pixel on the map; no spot is safe. If you're alliance you are nothing to us but a target. You know those feats you hear people bragging about doing in TBC? We did them. Oh and we're recruiting. What we offer: The honour of wearing the most infamous guild tag on the server <Strawberry Puppy Kisses>; Guaranteed backup, whether you're losing an argument in chat or a 1v2 fight against alliance scum; Freedom of speech, opinion and spending your game time; A competitive environment in which you can grow into a better player and person. F U N What we demand: Following the above rules; At least 300 confirmed HKs; Trained in gorilla warfare; Top bantz; Creativity; Being active and participating in guild events; Ability to both absorb and disseminate information without external help (this means don't be retarded, but if you needed that explained you can close this page, sweetie.) If that seems like your dream come true, get in touch with us.
After today's earlier server restart, our Game of Thrones tribute guild got renamed to <Strawberry Puppy Kisses> which really cramps our style, considering it was originally called <Wight Power> and made a lot of sense since in the show the Night King's army is a powerful force to be reckoned with. To further align ourselves in theme with our favorite TV show and fictional world created by George R. R. Martin and brought to life on-screen by showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, we even went as far as rolling undead characters in-game and customizing them accordingly to look like the wights showcased in the TV series; that deep runs our passion for both WoW and GoT! Now, I understand some concerns were raised within the Netherwing community on both Horde and Alliance sides, and I'm here to lay them to rest once and for all! To my dismay, I have learned that certain demoralized individuals that contacted me about getting recruited, during the last couple of days, got the wrong idea about what our guild stands for and took it upon themselves to spread misinformation and lies after being rejected. I have made it abundantly clear, time and again, that we are a very progressive guild in the sense that we try to be as inclusive and diverse as possible, our guild members' backgrounds ranging across many belief systems, political affiliations, genders, and, believe it or not, even races (yeah! both in and outside of the game). Our strive to be as inclusive as possible extends even as far as being willing to stray from our GoT-fanmade-guild principles and accepting characters that aren't forsaken (undead)! As a result, many, if not half, of our guild members, are, as we like to call them, non-wights (blood elves, orcs, trolls or tauren). The reason for it is that they're all fans of the show and answered favorably when asked if they're wight, and the truth of the matter is that whether or not they're undead is ultimately irrelevant as long as you can be dead inside and we'll still consider you a wight. However, there is one thing that we will not stand for, and that is racism and discrimination! Many of those that contacted us about recruitment spouted racist slurs and profanity that I will not get into at this current moment. Suffice it to say, they were swiftly set straight and put in their place. Apparently, these individuals took to global channels after getting rejected and started spreading falsehoods about our guild, and even after calmly attempting to defuse the situation and explain to everyone what they were doing and how their trolling was damaging to our reputation, it did become tiresome after a while, but we held on strong... Although not being immediately apparent, at the time, it is clear to us that there is a conundrum posed by the fact that the words "wight" and "white" are homonyms, and that although they're spelled differently and mean different things, they read the same. That, followed by the word "power", ended up rustling some feathers, which, in turn, must've amounted to a pretty substantial number of complaints to our address. I empathize with the people that have had to deal with the mater in question, respectively, members of the staff, but must unfortunately insist on the fact that we've been struggling with clearing our name and addressing most of these issues both internally and externally, handling every grievances and disagreements as they arose, all the while being dismissed by a staff member when contacted for a mandatory guild name change and attempting to defend our claims. Frustration is no excuse for ignorance, nor should it be acceptable behavior on anyone's part. This only serves to lessen our efforts to better ourselves as a community, first and foremost, in times when we need to stand together, now, more than ever! I have annexed a couple of screenshots (https://imgur.com/a/oJrG740 & https://imgur.com/a/EFU8dDo) for context and am available anytime for further inquiry, as I'm sure any guild members are, as well. In conclusion, I'd like to also make you aware that the "Netiquette" is something retail prides itself in upholding it to the highest standards, yet, somehow, there's: - a guild called <Wight> on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/guild/eu/thunderhorn/wight) - 3 characters called "Wightpower" on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/search?q=wightpower) - 4 characters called "Wightpower" on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=wightpower) - 53 characters called "Wight" on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/search?q=wight) - 95 characters called "Wight" on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=wight) - a guild called <Whitepower> on EU (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/guild/eu/nathrezim/whitepower) - 2 characters called "Whitepower" on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=whitepower) - 4 guilds called <Wight Power> on US (https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-us/search?q=wight+power) - actual in-game Wights of several types (https://wowwiki.fandom.com/wiki/Wight) So, if people would stop grasping at straws, they'd ultimately see we've literally done nothing wrong, and would love to have our original guild name back with no excuses necessary or any hard feelings... Thank you for your time and understanding!
