I have changed my name for this round as I did not want to run an alliance. On joining GW2 I applied for an alliance that I could see was new. I offered some advice, to one of it's leaders, just to help out, helping is part of an alliance's job as far as I am concerned. I gave him a few pointers and that was all, nothing more.
One day I come online and to my surprise, I have received, what I would call, a rude PM. Just shortening it down, this so-called leader of the alliance I was in, asked, 'do I want to take over the alliance?' (Not in a good way)
I consequently left the alliance after I sent him a PM saying I didn't like his attitude. I now have been told he is beginning to have a bad attitude with everyone in the alliance, seems I got out of it just in time.
Point of this topic??? If you're in alliance and the leader is giving you grief or bad attitude, just leave!!! At the end of the day you are not tied to any alliance, the alliance you are in has not got any hold over you, in fact, you are doing that alliance a favor just by being in that alliance.
Take care guys and have a good game.
