I could use *idiot* *numpty* *moronic* *silly* same thing, my opinion is, that people that speak that way on forums are one of the above. Because they certainly are not calm and constructive at all when they react how they do. I also use these terms in a broad sense, not directed at one specific. I think you get the Jist though

Blizzard will change the entry requirements. They always do.... this is a single player game element, and they are restricting it this way to mimic some quasi-realworld event called Fight Club. Admirable, but foolish.
Just because you can't stand people who post on their forums doesn't mean they aren't allowed to, and unless their threads are being closed, locked, or deleted then they are allowed which means you should just deal with it.

True that. Also in 6.4.4 we are going to get "Superior lounge" for people that are dk's. Everyone can go for it if they are DK's.Anyone can go for it if they have the money.
Also incoming "the mile club" for people that have letter "F" in their name. Everyone can go for it if they have the letter in their name.
Sure we will also face "Lounge of purities" loaded with heirlooms and achievements, but only for people that do have Skinning and Enchanting as professions and have never changed them, or will change. Everyone can go for it if they have the professions.
People will be selling invites for at the very least 20k for MONTHS no matter how they got the invite or how much THEY paid.
On my server there's people that post green tea leaves and rain poppies for like 8g each still and that's the lowest costing stacks. People are out of their mind when it comes to mats and other than day 1-5 none of the herbs or ghost iron should be sold for more than 1g a pop given how ridiculously quick everything respawns.
It's that kind of mentality that will lead most people into trying to sell invites for ridiculous prices for a very very long time.
You guys realize that if buy a brawlers guild invite from someone for 20k and then immediately turn around and sell two invites for 10k, you essentially just join the guild for free. And if that turns into a Cascading effect eventually everyone will be in the brawlers guild.
Not to mention if you pool your money together with guild mates and friends you can all get an invite for 1/X of the price of the invite( X = the amount of people who pitch it).
This is just an interesting way to do gating. The first few people who get in will have access to very short queue times for matches and will not want to event others as all it will do is lengthen the time they wait for matches. However as soon as they "finish" the cheeves it will be open season.
Hmmm, BMAH invites, this is a stupid idea. I understand haveing to be invited into the brawlers guild but it should be based off things like Solo killing a level 90-91 rare mob. Since it a place to fight PVE monsters and show off, why not make the criteria for getting an invite be the same? That way it is still accessable for everyone but has a bit of a wall to get over if you want it rather than a stupid amount of money and a rare appearance on the BMAH.
Considering the concept, the invitation system is kind of fitting and sexy. But yeah, if it bars too many people from setting foot into the much-advertised guild, then that's poor design plain and simple.
Personally I think it will be easier than it looks like. Those invitations could be available by the butt load.
So if it takes 1-3 days for someone to complete the events and then invite one other person. In a guild of 50 the last guys on the list won't be seeing any brawler's guild content for months.
I don't have a problem with the gating aspect, it's just the way they are doing it. An auction house? I mean they could've came up with an intriguing questline or some kind of grind (similar to the legendary questline), something that takes some effort but is also not as mundane as camping the black market auction house to make sure you are the last bid, and thats even if you have enough money to keep up a bidding war. It's disappointing seeing the dev's take this route.
I think it would be interesting if they made it so you had to recruit. Similar to how in fight club they go out and fight, but occasionally bring those people back into the club.
When you get to Rank X within the guild you have to go pick 10 fights with other players and then invite 5 of them to the guild. If they didn't complete this they would be kicked out of the guild and have to wait for another invite to start up at the lowest rank again.
Make it a weekly quest and only players who are not in the guild count towards the quest. Sure people might just dual each others alts, but that's a lot of extra work.
I agree everyone should have a chance to participate in New features Blizzard is entering into the game. What is worse is Blizzard's Alice in Wonderland glasses they seem to be wearing lately. My main's guild had over 465 members in it during cataclysm, we were running 3 DS runs - 1 heroic core, 1 Normal and 1 alt/sign up status for players we couldn't fit into our other teams.
We did a hell of a lot of effort and planning to ensure, nobody got left out.
From talking with GM/asst GM/Officers on vent. Our once very active semi hardcore/casual friendly raid guild has suffered under MOP horribly. Before we had 8-35 people on at any given time. Lately they have 4-8 as their max, we have no raid progression at all in MOP so far because 3/4's of the Core group never came back for MOP.
So how do people who are in a guild but the guild is suffering a very harmful hemorage even get to try at this new feature.
Blizzard really need to take off the glasses and really take a hard look at their game, there is something wrong when a semi hardcore raid guild can't even field enough players to make a guild raid count.
