    Default Vantage says goodbye.

    Hi, I'm Davol and I was/am the GM of <Vantage>. This thread is not intended to do what we've spent much of this game doing talk about how awesome we are, or rather were. This is simply to say goodbye to the many people that we have met along the way.
    We had a lot of fun throughout GSB and RoS, but with HK brought longer raid hours, longer fights, and higher turnover. Much of the failure of the guild rests upon me. I have led many guilds starting in EQ1, and this time I didn't choose my officer base well. Throughout HK every single officer quit or moved on to a different game. Looking at my roster I only had 3 people that I started GSB with.
    In the past week 5 or 6 raiders have quit Rift due to boredom from HK. So as a GM I was faced with the unenviable choice of throwing in the towel or re-recruiting, teaching, and gearing those slots. Without my original friends and officers I just could not find the willpower to do that. Additionally, it felt like a cycle that was destined to repeat itself with the upcoming GW2, D3, ToR people would have just quit all over again. I believe that Rift will fade out with the release of those games, and Trion's focus on it's new project game.
    If Rift wants to survive it needs to release more polished dungeons with less bugs, tweaks, changes, and roadblocks. The early incarnation of HK compared to now is a very very different dungeon. This game also needs to fix it's pvp and not give in to forum whining as it's only method of research on class balance.
    We had a great run from release through peaking at #2 out of all guardian guilds, and I hope all of my members are proud of that. To all of the guilds we've trolled or been trolled by much respect and good competition. Despite any of our conflicts I wish nothing but the best to Voodoo, Avid, Aftermath, Breaking Bads, Maximation, and any other top guilds I have left out. It's been great competing with you, and even the back and forth Sh*t talking.
    I'm sure this thread will catch some "I don't care" trolls, but if you don't care simply move on.
    Best of luck to all of you, and kill a squid for me.

    Lol no Soma wasn't quite important enough in our guild to do that. Just attrition over time/HK getting boring and grindy.
