The first one which makes no sense anyway is the wording on the 'Victory Streak (recurring quest)' - Win 12 battles without losing.
Add 'without losing in between' or 'Win 12 consecutive battles'.

Same goes for negotiations: You can't really "lose" a negotiation, you can only "fail" it.

What makes this a grammatical or other type of error? The quest name says 'victory streak' - which in and of itself, means without losing - because if you lost, it would not be a victory streak. Using the word 'consecutive' could be useful, if the quest itself was not calling it a streak already.

Same goes for negotiations: You can't really "lose" a negotiation, you can only "fail" it.
Actually, even Harvard Law School has a blog about win-lose negotiations, citing examples such as cities attempting to win the new Amazon HQ2 a few years ago, and the results of when big city 'wins' the rights to a major league team, which ended up being a losing negotiation in the end.

You either win a negotiation, or you lose it, or both sides win (aka a win-win scenario) or both sides end up worse than they started (aka a lose-lose scenario).

There are certain language defects in the automated comments. Kicked vs Left vs Removed

When I kick somebody out of the guild:
The event log says player was "kicked from" the guild by me [1]
The main guild thread says player 1 "left" the guild [2]

When I remove somebody from a social thread
The thread says Player 1 was kicked" by me [3]

The words should be
[1] kicked
[2] kicked
[3] removed

The only place the automated comment should say "left" is when the player voluntarily left the guild or social thread.
"Left" implies voluntary, "Kicked" means involuntary. "Removed" is softer than "Kicked"; it implies no assertiveness.
