Hello! I am raid leader for a raiding team which now only have 6 members (I have contacts with good players from other guilds so we manage to get raids going around for the moment), all the current members are really good players and I've played with them for quite a while. I have raided with many people throughout MoP, and it's really hard to find really good people who actually learn their rotation well, deep insight of the class and perform well in raids. When I recruit people always claim "I have raided X on hc, I was top 3 on my realm, I know my class well", and when they actually dps, they are nothing special, in fact under performing, doing 120k when they should be able to do 160k. And when I tell them to go visit different guides or give them a general tip they still do not improve.
Maybe I am a bad leader in that way, I don't know. I always try to increase my performance, sometimes use simcaft, and have always read up on tactics in detail. I frequently get complimented for my performance and people often ask me for tips.
Is the only way to raid with people to find out how good they actually are? Only a few I've raided with that was bad in the beginning has actually managed to become really good players. Should I try to recruit on a website, with different questions? (I ask the same questions ingame when I recruit.) It feels like people always type in good merits even if they're a bad player. I play on a realm with mainly pvpers, but there are lots of guilds with hc progression.
Why I am asking this is because I have a "dream" of one day leading a 25 man team and have good progression, but it seems very very hard to get good people, especially with that amount of players.
