Sorry Gali, I'm quite sure the intent is there, but in practice it's not happening. The pact has the purest of intentions, I'm confident in that, knowing some of the members of those guilds as I do. Those guys wouldn't sign on if it was exclusionary to others. It's when it is put in practice that it fails, the pact has fostered the belief that it's "their" raid on such and such a time, and anyone else attempting it at that time are interlopers and it is fair to KS it from them since it's "their" raid that day. This I have seen and experienced personally.
The pact is/was a laudable idea to stop inter guild friction, and probably does between the pact signers, in practice it fails when applied to non-pact signators, the spirit of the pact isn't adhered to.
Communism is a wonderful CONCEPT, you work hard and produce as much of whatever you do best, using only what you need for yourself, and turning your excess over to the rest of community for thier needs, and everyone else does the same, it's when it is APPLIED that it breaks down.
Someone will see that they can slide by doing squat and get just as much of what they need, so why work hard? Their neighbor sees that and says why the heck should I break a sweat so that clown can lay about, I'll take it easy myself, soon all output is effected. Now someone has to be in charge making sure everyone else is working to peek performance, but some tasks nobody wants to do..so the new person in charge has to make someone do it, since nobody is volunteering. So the new forced labor guy hates what they are forced to do, they have zero incentive to work hard at a task they dislike, so to increase output the new person in charge has to "incourage" them (torture). The new guy in charge starts to thinking that he deserves just a tad more than everyone else since he is so vital and important after all....
Geez, what happened to the concept of share your excess for the good of all? It crumbled in practice..
OMG are you really comparing ENB raids to communism? That has to be the funniest thing I ever seen. I have an idea for you get off your lazy bum and raid (or we will torture you) because no one is stopping you. Its seems to me that all you want is someone to hold your hand and say comon lets go raid for you! Try playing the game instead of making 4 page long posts that most don't bother to read anyways.
For the love of GOD please lock this post before the free world is invaded and taken over by communists.
