Hi girls and guys,
I am the RL of a smallish social raiding guild, we consist of a bunch of fairly "old" (35y-65y) players with 2-3 younger elements. This means that in terms of raidperformance we're not top of the list, we're not last either, ... we are about as mediocre as it gets.
Recently I was confronted with 2 of my biggest dps leaving the guild. One just stepped out stating he wanted to progress faster, did /gquit and 2 minutes later he had joined another guild. The other one stated he wants to leave the guild with his main character but leave all his alts in the guild. He wants to progress faster (on the curve he states, meaning he wants to be doing HoF now instead of Mogu'Shan Vaults), yet intends to stay behind with his alts in order to help us "mediocre" players out. Meanwhile he remains in the guild while searching for an appropriate new guild.
In my opinion, I am rather glad to be rid of the first player, someone who leaves the guild to join another one just minutes later has his plans well prepared and cannot be an asset to my raid. The second guy however is bothering me more. He clearly expects to be taken into our raid schedule since he's "the better player" (which he truly is), but here's my dilemma. If he comes with his Alts I'll have to be leaving someone's main home and the rule in our guild is mains above alts. On top of that, how can I be certain his alt won't leave the guild once he's completely geared up on the expense of the guild.
Could the community give me some advice on how they would handle this case? I'm really a very composed and calm person so I'm no looking for drama advice, just good sensible ideas on what to do with this.
