    [PTR]Crash multiple clients on the PTR

    So I was messing around on the PTR and decided to make a guild... A very large guild. I used ninjainvite/rapedotty to start invites. When I hit around 400-500 members I started getting a bunch of client crashes. At first I thought it was the addon, but soon people were telling me they were getting crashes too. It seems that about half the time you log in, guild chat won't work (can't read it, can't talk in it) and the game runs fine. If however, you log in and gchat happens to be working, you will get a client crash shortly after seeing the chat or trying to talk in it. The guild is over 1200 members now, and I am getting a ton of whispers "your guild crashes my client". I am only able to stay online when the gchat is broken, but the new invites see the chat and often crash shortly after joining the guild. Not an extremely useful exploit, but its fun to see 20-30 people from guild go offline all at once.

    edit: some people are claiming that they are unable to even log on after joining my guild, their client crashes before they can type "/gquit"

    epicz,this should work even on LIVE or PRIVATE when you have over 700 guild members, most of addons slow down your wow and you wont be able to login back as soon you turn all addons off

    I was second to make a guild on EU test realms and this happened to me but with only 10 members.
    I believe it's caused by guild ranks (they're bugged) - and this issue can be fixed by promoting some members
    and deleting the buggy rank.

    Actually it seems that everyone online in the guild crashes whenever a person leaves the guild(unless their guild chat is bugged with "you are not in a guild") which seems to happen randomly at login time. So I would log in and out until guild chat didn't work, then I could stay online as long as I want. Now I just need to see if kicking someone from the guild crashes everyone as well..

    I am also having issues with ranks bugging if you try to delete any, best not to mess with it I guess.

    Kicking someone does not work but someone dropping guild is defiantly one of the ways to cause crashes.
