I just want to say publicly somewhere, that if you're just trying to survive timequakes and Alexandria's in there, she's not going to attack solo people. 1) I'm a dreadful combatant anyway and always have been, and 2) it's really not a great way to foster rivalry instead of hatred. So if you want to survive your minute and if I'm able to help you do so, please feel free to say something. There are several others who feel the same, who get kinda OOC disgusted with this jumping business (on both sides, please, before I get asked to source my assertions). I've actively tried to stop our alliance from jumping solo lowbies/midbies regularly, and at the very least do not take part in it.
And since I saw the comment IC but Alex wouldn't talk to the sayer, I just want to say - I don't feel entitled to survive. In no way have I ever said that. I go in, I take my deaths, and don't talk trash. I don't like that I'm jumped when I'm not deffed and lagging, but I also don't run around complaining about it endlessly, I don't cuss people out and I don't generally take it to heart. It doesn't mean I don't think people are butts for the instacrush.
