    My guild sucks because ...

    What is the main reason why your guild doesn't perform as good as other guilds? How come other guilds with the same raidhours as you have much better progress?

    Is it your DPSers who are slacking?
    Your healers who stand in fire?
    Your tanks who keep keyboard turning?
    Or maybe it's your leadership? An awful raidleader, retarded officers without a clue, or a guildleader that doesn't know how to or doesn't do the effort to recruit properly?

    Come on... spill the beans.

    Cause we are a PUG guild and only raid 1-2 days a week.

    2 HC down MV (guild is 4 HC down) and 5 boss down HoF norm.

    I think if we raid a little more and don't have new people every run would have done a lot better

    Because we can't get members to stick around. No members, no events, no events, no members, etc.

    Uhm...well...an option for mine isn't in the poll, because, other guilds don't have the same raid hours as mine.

    Mine only raids 6 hours a week because we're all 25+ and have families/jobs/kids/lives taking up most of our time but we progress fairly well given the extremely limited time frame.

    If I had to choose something off the poll? I guess the dps.

    My group seems to be fairly balanced. Dps, healers and tanks all make mistakes, but at the same time they all have their good points. Sometimes we hit an enrage on a bad try, sometimes we die to low healing, whatever.

    my guild sucks because there's always someone who can't show up on a raid, and there's no replecement.

    And this post has just won.

    On a serious note: I just went to a new guild, and the problem seems to be the dps and stupid mistakes.

    We tried to go 25 man, but Blizzard killed of 25 man raiding in Cataclysm so we wasted 4 weeks that we could have used on heroic progression.

    Blizzard didn't kill off 25-man raiding. The players themselves did when they decided they would rather do 10-man. You can't blame Blizzard for them giving people the option of doing whichever size they want to do, and then seeing that most people don't want to do bigger raids.
    Humans are the only species on the planet smart enough to be this stupid.

    i went with dps, but the real reason, we're old.

    seriously, most of the stable players in my guild are in their 30's, we even have a hunter in his 60's. nobody really cares about hard modes or being server first, we just wanna kill things, get loot and have a laugh whilst doing it, preferably with as little drama as possible, but someone always manages to squeeze some in somewhere.

    i could also easily take the blame for being a crappy guild leader, but tbh, i dont wanna recruit monkeys when i have trained monkeys already. if i was aiming for world firsts and server rankings, i'd put the effort in, 4/5 years ago, i did put all that effort in, but sustaining that kind of effort is a lot of work when you have a full time job and real life commitments.

    "In before:" is short for "I am posting this before anyone else says something I fully or jokingly expect them to, like the following:"

    Well we are a casual/social guild, so I don't complain, but as an ex-raider, watching these guys stand in fire and just do stupid stuff is like bashing my face on a wall.
