I'm rather astonished that anyone dubs these events as being exclusive in any fashion. They were not. They were posted on the forums a week in advance. BOTH TIMES. They were talked about. The people who showed up were from all different areas of Utterby, not just the Lodge and the people who reaped the rewards of such efforts, again, were not all part of a single clan. Many people did have considerable impact across the board and throughout different times.
The only people that have been complaining are those who were unable to be present. Which is regrettable, but understandable. It happens.

In this case, yes, it's utterly understandable that people missed that there was a second RPT on 9/13/14(9/12/14?) given there was only notice on the forums in a thread titled "9/6/14 RPT Availability." You are correct. It is solely regrettable that IC events need to be heard about on the forums, rather than ICly, for people to be pre-aware enough to be able to attend. I'm making it very clear, perhaps insultingly clear, what I mean. What I believe others mean. If there's any insult taken, just forgive me my brusque nature. I'm seeking clarity.Which is regrettable, but understandable.
If I've overstepped my boundaries by re-opening this, that's fair. But I was concerned enough that I saw fit to. I'm not trying to pick fights with Staff. I'm not trying to jump up and down and yell "so unfair." I'm still 90% pleased with my gameplay experience. I'm simply shocked at the response, given what seems to me polite, sincere concerns. You guys forgot to make it open to people, but that doesn't mean we hate you.Since this plot has taken place with no foreseeable followups (for now) I am going to lock this thread. There are enough complaint threads describing how poorly thought out and ill planned this was when it was free for anyone to join in on, as opposed to other plots that have been in progress or completed.
