It was inevitable I suppose.
The guild started strong, getting 3 server first and titles (in less than 3 weeks) that no one else in the server would ever get(Conqueror of Naxx, Magic Seeker, and Obsidian Slayer). Now it's on the brink of breaking apart.
I don't really know what happened but here are some of the factors in my opinion:
1.) Losing the race to get first in 3 Drake Sarth server kill - This is not the main reason but one of the factors that slowly killed our guild.
2.) People got bored - Clearing all 3 instances in 2 nights in 3 months get's REALLY REALLY boring.
3.) Domino Effect - When people start posting that they are done with the game that gets contagious.
4.) This Drama - Last but not the least this "incident". Check this out.
GL posted in the forums was made asking if people still want to continue raiding, he also mentioned his account was cancelled and will only reactivate if the guild lives on. A good amount of raiders did respond they still want to continue.
The raid formed up the next night and it was full on time! The officers were in charge. That hasn't happened in awhile. 30 minutes later the Guild leader logged on. A few minutes later he left the guild with the gbank(all the gold and mats on it). He logged on his alt and started demoting every officer that was in the raid.
We found out later that when he logged on he asked to get invited in the raid. The raid was full and
10-20 minutes later he invited his main toon back to the guild and gave the gold back.
That move alone I guess was the final nail to coffin. Raiders were uneasy and really wasn't sure where the guild is headed to. A good amount still want to raid and for those people a shaky guild isn't their best interest.
A secret source has informed me that the only reason the GL opted to keep going with the guild was that he tried to join our rival guild but got declined.
After that little incident, rumors started spreading that a majority of the officers and a good amount of the core raiders was going to
One of my friends and fellow dps warrior already joined another guild. He asked me if I was angry, I replied not at all! Why would I?
I told him "you have to look out for yourself first". He wanted to raid and the environment of the guild that he was in was no longer in line with his goals.
What's my position in this issue?
I wanna see how this all plays out for the next 2 days. I will prolly stop raiding for now till Ulduar is about to come out and then I'll go from there.
I didn't like the rumors about the GL appint to our rival guild add to that the fact that he left the guild because he didn't get invited to the raid that was full.
Will I leave the guild and join the coupdetat guild if formed?
I don't know. I guess if most of the core raiders are in there I would join. I gotta be realistic though. I gotta see if that new guild will have a stable leadership that can lead it thru the new instance. I don't have the energy to app to another guild so playing with the people I know is really ideal for me.
I'll make another post in the next few days if anything major comes up.
