    This is just totally 100% wrong. I raid with females, like 4 of them. and most of the time they listen and follow directions BETTER than the males. There is nothing wrong with recruiting or raiding with females, anyone who tells you there is, is just plain dumb and shouldn't get to raid themselves.

    Actually, it's not always guys that are the problem. Some females like the attention and look for attention from people with power. In that case, officers or raid leaders. Once they have their foot in the door, they can bend them whichever way they please even if it's barely noticeable.

    You can try to blame guys all you want, but when is someone going to lay a bit of the responsability on the female?

    I'm a female. I'm a hardcore raider. In 7 years of gameplay I experienced no negativity due to my gender. I'll add I never really made a secret out of it. While changing guilds I've never even seen a guild that would not recruit females so while I don't claim guilds like this don't exist I would say those a majority.

    apply don't mention you being a girl. after you pass your trial tell m your acteully a girl. You will most likely get a good reputation within the guild for being awesome?

    It can be the guys, or the girls making the problem. There are attention seeking, and drama crazy women all over WoW, but there are also plenty of normal women. Same goes for women who are good at the game, and bad at the game. The problem is often like you said, on the fault of the guys, though, where you'll have a bunch of them trying to impress a woman, or something else that can cause drama

    It might seem unfair to exclude women, just because men will try to impress her, but no matter how you look at it, removing all women from the situation effectively solves the issue

    There is a point. In fact I have noticed that guilds who struggle a lot and don't do as good as their ambitions, tend to make up stupid rules.

    How would one get through their entire application, and trial without it being discovered that she is a woman? You would need a very manly voice, or a guy to actually sit there and do the talking for you, and add to that you'd be lying on your application. Assuming for the sake of argument, that you could fool them with a fake voice, lying on your application isn't a good start, and you'd likely eventually be kicked

    I really don't understand...

    I'm pretty sure even the most awful guilds around use some sort of voice chat, be it Vent, Skype, Teamspeak, Mumble, etc

    Do not bother applying if you are any of the following:
    1. Immature
    2. Under the age of 21 (anything under will require an extensive verbal interview)
    3. Female
    4. Have a *%%!ty mic
    5. Have no cell phone (or own one and don't respond)
    6. Care more about loot than progression
    7. Looking to raid more than 12 hrs a week
    8. Left your last guild because of loot
    9. Looking to get carried
    10. Don't know the in's and outs of your class
    11. not 1/8 DS HM Minimum
    12. Not have an authenticator

    Now everything except for the 'no females' on that list I can understand. Can someone please enlighten me on this subject?

    Thanks!


    This whole discussion makes me so supriced in a way.. But honestly, the guild that this list is taken from is not a guild I would concider good.
    But that is my oppinion ofc..

    I am a woman, and I have lead a guild since the summer of 2oo7.. We started raiding in WOLK and have no plans on stopping any time soon.. =)
    Ever since we started raiding I've always been the one that mainly handles the raidleading, so in all honestly Ive run into all kinds of people
    over these years.. There are girls/women out there that do need to learn more about the game, and I have run into two women over these
    years that have been dramaqueens.. -_- However! In our core raiding team we have including myself four women (10man group), none causing
    any drama etc.... Back in the days when we did 25mans the players I had the biggest issue with during raids (refusing to do what they were
    supposed to, causing drama, and just basicly acting up) was teenage boys.
    Over all those weeks of raiding since we started I think two raids were effected by female drama. But on the other hand we had quite a few
    raids in ICC that got abit out of hand because of boys in the ages of 13-17.... We are nowadays not recruiting anyone under the age of 18
    to avoid having any issues again, but anyone that knows what they are doing and want to perform well is welcome - regardless of gender. =)



    And as a little side note.. The cell phone rule is a bit harsh.. Personally I would not want to have all my guildies cellphone numbers.. o.0 But
    there are times where a phone number really can come in handy. I have the phonenumber to several of the core raiders in our guild, just to
    make the communication easier.. For example, one member has to stay late at work sometimes, and ofc that goes before a game. At that
    point its nice for the rest of us to know if he wont make it on time for a raid.. ^^

    Thanks for taking the time to read, have a great day!

    Here's a perfect example of what this thread is about. Why on earth would you write a forum post with center alignment? No good can come out of that just as no good can come out of having females in HC raiding guilds.

    Lol, I found that... awkward as well. When someone busts in saying "I am a woman!", then does something really out of place, it's hard to take their side in an argument about women acting differently

    Anyway, "Lilyh", you're ignoring the point that regardless of a woman's intentions, the presence of a girl in a group of men can lead to drama from men trying to impress the girl. Especially when you consider that lots of guys in WoW aren't exactly rolling in female attention, and when they get a chance to look good for a woman, they're willing to fight with the other men

    I laughed.

    Its funny because its true.

    And 10 man isn't hardcore raiding.

    Every single boss was exponentially easier in 10man than 25 for DS.

    Remember Yorsahj pre nerf?

    Yeah about 11 guilds in the world killed it in 25, over 100 for 10 man.

    Same with gunship and ultraxion.

    Dps requirements were so low in comparison it was sad. Spine's tendon dps was stupidly low relative in 10 man relative to 25.

    I facepalmed when I read that first part about being a woman before I even noticed the weird centered text. Once I noticed the centered text my eyes skipped it over and went directly to the dumb little signature at the end and didn't even bother reading the rest of the post.

    I've never seen anyone just completely nullify their own points in such an external way like that before.

    Speaking as a female Raider myself. I can attest that yes, my gender is a cause for ALOT of drama in guilds. Let me tell you a story.

    Look up Plaguechill - 25 Sinestra. I was in a guild who got realm first Sinestra, yes it was a few weeks before Firelands but still, we killed it first, and we had 3 other 25 and 2 10 man guilds on the same encounter and we beat it mere seconds before our rival guilds.

    6 weeks later, the guild died.

    Another female in my guild had been sleeping with 6 of the guild members, she asked every guild member to keep it secret, and when she slept with the 7th guild member, he kinda whispered to someone about his "conquest" to one of his friends....one of her "Mates". The two of them felt betrayed to be played by this woman and started some drama in the forums by posting "Less than flattering" photos of her and started alot of drama with her friends and their friends and 13 members of the 25 core raid team left. Then to spark even more drama, she left, taking her "Boyfriend" with her, our main tank. Rather than try to recruit, we ended up just calling it quits after Heroic Ryolith.

    This is one of the many reasons HC raiding guilds say no to my gender. Usually I do my interview with my brother doing the mumble voice over, and after I get a core raiding spot, I tell them I have a confession, and admit my gender. I tell them that while I never was the voice calling things out, I was the player behind the awesome tanking (yes, I tank).
