Sorry, but the OP seems fishy. No one at the age of 16 needs 2 weeks to study for an exam. That's absurd.

In addition he's in a casual guild, that means he raids maybe 2-3 nights a week?? If you can't miss 9 hours in an entire week than you're not enjoying life!
Gotta agree that he did you a favor. Get good grades, but more than grades, have a focus of what kind of job / where you see yourself doing well. Think about this a lot, and set goals for getting there, because in today's workplace it takes a lot. Or work for minimum wage and get fucked. Oh and try to start giving a shit about having a job. A lot of people, including myself get their degree and burn out. Be a part of something you can stay interested in and have an investment with. WoW does none of those things, (despite how similar most guild applications are to work irl bullshit) and tbh Lei Shen normal isn't the biggest accomplishment in the world. IMO normal content is meant to be beaten. If you don't get a boss in 5-20 attempts on normal then you have some shit raiders that either don't know how to play or are lazy. Kudos to you that you've done it, but in the grand scheme of raiding, bosses don't actually matter, unless you're top 100 world ranked guild. To me, I enjoy raiding for focusing my energy for the challenge of playing my spec perfectly, and for the social aspect and enjoying people's company that I can group with in other games.
I'm floored at some of the responses in this thread. There are some very mentally sick people playing this game if they really think WoW > Real Life and honestly believe in mandatory attendance with no exceptions.
All in all, take your time and get through school. WoW makes bad study habits and bad mind sets to procrastinate.
Wow people need to read. People who are saying IRL>WoW...That is what he is doing. Stop preaching something he is already doing. He knows this and doesn't need to be told the same thing over and over again. If he said he was getting bad grade, say this, but not when a guy is taking not a day, or a couple days, or even a week off, but 2 weeks off, you should lay off him. With that said, the GM is a jerk. He shouldn't have no kicked you. Now if SoO started and you couldn't do your duties I understand a demotion, but not a kick. So yea find a new guild that doesn't have a idiotic GM.
i wouldnt worry too much, mate. come the next patch & the realms open up, you'll no doubt have no trouble finding a new guild.
Honestly, awhile back I would agree with some of you but my current guild is 11/13 Heroic and closing in on clearing the tier (Hopefully). Our main tank is 16 yes 16 and the guy is probably more mature then 90% of the 20+ year olds I have raided with, granted, he does not seem to have all these issues but there are times when he needs to leave a few min earlier which is fine but never had an attendance issue at all and the guy is an amazing tank and despite all of us are in our 20's and 30's and he is the youngest, He is pretty damn mature and we never have any problems with him.
For the people that would never recruit a 16 year old, as stated, before raiding with this guy I would be the same way, sometimes you just need to take a risk and see what happens, maybe u find that gem like our guild did.
Op, but seriously, I do find it hard to believe u were kicked for that reason, there has to be another or like people have sd, either you were not as good as u claim or they just did not like u. We have people that raided with us in the past that could no longer commit and are now just social members who do not have the time any longer but will be doing flex modes with us. There is always 2 sides to the story.

I was once gkicked for looking at the guild leader in the game. LOOKING at the guild leader..
So, to be perfectly clear, if you want to have ownership, start a guild like I did/buy one for 10K - I love being a guild leader, plus you can name your guild something after a BOSS/AKA/HR/AKA HOODRYCH - I named my guild skrill capped
I think there is more to this story. I have a hard time believing you when you say that you got kicked out of a the guilds because you couldn't raid for 2 weeks. There has to be more to it than that.
