Oh, and I suppose I have more complaints about my alt Warlock's guild.
1. Can't figure out which format they want to do. When I joined, they were running 25-mans and doing somewhat decently, but not amazing. They were regularly switching to 10-man to kill fights that they 25-man was failing on, like Durumu.The 25-man still hasn't killed Lei Shen. They've since had to switch from 25-man to two 10-mans, which had to be further combined into one 10-man because something like 6 people failed to show on the second raid night of the week. The reason for that is detailed in my #3 complaint.
2. They also have attendance issues that require pugging. This is partially a result of #1.
3. Leadership makes bad decisions. Allow me to list a few: They decided to take a week off from the 25-man raid to work on heroic progression on 10-man. They wiped to Jin'rohk for a while and then started working on Horridon. They didn't kill Horridon. The 25-man scheduled for the next week failed because not enough people showed up (directly related to them taking a week off for heroic 10-man progression), so they worked on heroic Horridon some more. They've devoted 3 or 4 weeks of heroic work almost strictly to Horridon and, aside from a 3% wipe somewhere in the middle, they have barely even survived into the final phase for longer than a few moments. In other words, they've been making backwards progress. I've pointed out numerous times, both to leadership and to my friends in the guild, that Horridon is a bad choice for a second heroic, but they keep working at it and getting nowhere. They could've slaughtered heroic Ji-Kun by now, getting some great gear for further progression, but, as I said before, leadership makes bad decisions.
Oh yeah, and the 25-man did get back together (for one week) and spent an hour or so wiping on heroic Ji-Kun (the guild doesn't have 25 heroic quality players... they really have no business doing any 25-man heroics besides Jin'rohk), making surprisingly decent progress considering how terrible our comp was, and then had to extend the raid an extra two hours just to get to Lei Shen and put 3 or 4 attempts in. That was our last 25-man raid and the reason should've been obvious to leadership before they made the mistake of keeping everyone up until 2am.
edit: To anyone in this guild reading this, note that I fully understand that if I don't like the situation, I don't have to raid with you. I'm not the one leading the guild/raids and so I can take it or leave it. I get that. I'm simply calling things as I see them. If any of you happen to read this, please consider it constructive criticism :P
