THE GUILD IS FALLING APART

…now I’ve got your attention, let’s make something clear: IT IS NOT. You don’t believe me? Let me explain myself.

Players will always come and go. Others will take their place, that’s the way of life. The Guild can always encounter a setback, but it won’t ever be anything we – as a FAMILY – cannot recover from.

When driven into a corner, we fight our way out. When fallen down, we pull ourselves together and stand back up. We don’t give in, we are one. The Holy Judgement is ONE.

ARE YOU ONE OF US?

 

 

END OF AN ERA

It’s the end of an expansion, changes happen. Some are burned out, others are still enjoying the same aspects and others are experimenting with new aspects within the same game. It’s how things go. Noticeably, some players quit their previous activities, such as raiding. There is no point in being angry at these players – doesn’t everyone deserve a break? Didn’t most players do enough for the Guild and their Teams that the Guild should “give them a break”? Who are we to force them to continue and threatening them that they won’t ever be able to join us again if they don’t continue?

We all play the same game and this is for one single reason: to enjoy it and have fun. What’s the point of it once one stops having fun while doing certain activities? Exactly, there is no point. You play to enjoy the game, whether it’s by helping others or by playing alone. In the end, one does what makes him happy. If it doesn’t – that person should consider doing something else.

 

RESTRUCTURING OF THE GUILD

It’s currently known that the Guild is going through some changes. The end of the expansion being near doesn’t really help us reforming the Guild a lot, but we have to see it as an opportunity to get ready for WoD. Although most changes are making the Guild better (e.g. Social aspect of the Guild is rapidly growing), some Officers may step down, this either being due to IRL issues or having a different opinion on how things should go (e.g. an opinion about raiding being the only important aspect of our Guild and being careless about Socials – which is not the way to go!).

 

Some members might experience this as negative for the Guild, but it truly isn’t. It’s actually an opportunity for the Guild to add new members to our Team, which will provide different insights and a fresh look to help the Guild thrive even more.

Change is essential in order to improve.

Excellent post, thanks.

Can't disagree with anything you mentioned.  And I don't think it's all black and depressing, there are still lots of options for raiding (if that's our thing) and clearing old content, leveling alts in prep for WoD and of course learning about the new expansion from the Beta players (and maybe planning/refining the strategy).

One of the things I'd be particularly interested in doing is looking at options for 25 man raiding with Open Raid.  I know Broken has had some success with that recently and maybe it could be something we could think about over the next couple of weeks if we don't have enough players to put a 25 man together in guild.

Make no mistake though, burnout is a real problem at the end of an expansion and experienced players are asked more and more to help out with boosting less experienced players and alts through some of the earlier bosses (when really, all they are interested in are the last 6), I hope we can find a compromise for that as, in my experience, it is one of the biggest threats to a raiding guild at the end of an expansion.

Also, social runs for mounts, transmog gear, achievements or just to clear content that they haven't cleared before, would be good and is a very social thing to do.  If it's ok with you guys, I could organize a couple of runs like that each week, maybe at weekends.

My game time is a little limited lately, but I'm really keen to help out if I can.

Thanks for the reply Sadgeezer.


We're actively looking for more dedicated and friendly players to help out the Guild in all sort of ways.. So if you feel like doing so, you can always put up events on the calendar if you got some spare time - or just make random groups :)
