"peace out yo"
You just say you want to go.
There is never a need to go.
Give your reasons.
With a big 'ol Z-snap. They will not be able to deny your sass.

No one needs to know shit. it's your 14.99 a month
POWERED BY THE RED RAGE OF OUR CUSTOMERS, THIS IRON STEED WILL VALIANTLY LEAD YOU INTO BATTLE FOR THE ONLY FEW WEEKS YOU WILL USE IT. TAKES ONLY $30 AND YOUR SOUL TO ENJOY THE MOUNT EVERY OTHER PERSON HAS. BUY NOOOW.
I would take it with the GM personaly, insted of in /g chat, just explain to him that you want to progress further, and you do believe there is people in the current raid team that is holding you back. No need to name and shame or anything.
Then after clearing it with him, do a friendly "I have been accepted to a new guild, wich I think will suit my skill and desire to progress, more than this guild, I wish you all best luck in further raiding and see you around!", as you can always raid with and alt or something with them if its needed, and its fits your scheduel. Thats atleast how I did it, though I never talked to anyone of them again.
See it as quitting a job because you got accepted to a new job with better pay and/or workhours.
like others have said, if they are any form of serious they should abandom long term players. You are raiding for a reason, if the gm doesnt do that, hes a bad gm. If they do not have the intention to be serious and you are, just tell them and leave. You are paying for the game, you have goals, follow them. Dont get held back by some baddy gm playing the friend politics game
If the truth is that you think you are too good for the guild, then telling them the truth up front is being a douche.
So don't do that.
If the GM or officers want "young blood" to replace the "old slackers" you would already know that.
Just tell them you want to be in a guild that is progressing faster, and move on.

Just tell them you are leaving and give them your reasons why.
I know it seems bad because you'd still be on the same realm as your current guild, but believe me when I say no one will care in a few months time.
Do you know how many times I was worried about leaving on a bad note and not wanting to seem like a douche, only to have that guild literally fall to pieces in the next expansion or the next raid tier? Or to have the members whose feelings I was worried about hurting, quit the game altogether?
I know everyone likes to think of themselves as caring individuals, and I believe that many of us are. But at the end of the day, we all play this game for ourselves and there's no point in denying it. Do what you have to do to find happiness or I promise you, you'll regret it.
Your old guildies will get over it. It's not like your choice will have any affect whatsoever on their real lives.

Seeking wildness and solitude in a self-destructive world.
Is there a way you can help out these players instead of abandoning them? I know that's what I would do.
"On a boat, there is /gkick and /gquit. If /gkick jumps off the boat, who stays in? and you just reply saying: "I answer first".
Just accept the confirmation box and everyone will think you just fell to your own trap while you just left the guild with style!
A guild is not a contract, let them know that you've simply decided to try another one and that you wish them well. Simple as that.
I'm not a defender of Blizzard, I'm an opponent of stupid.
Call your guild mates
It's time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it's not their fault
But you just met somebody new
Tell them not to get obsessed, second-guessing everything you said and done
And then when they get upset tell them how you never meant to hurt no one
Then you tell them that the only way their heart will mend is when they learn to love again
And it won't make sense right now but you're still their friend
And then you let them down easy.
By being open and honest with them. If they can't respect that then that is their problem.
While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."
I had a similar situation where I wanted to leave but I wasn't sure how to go about it. We progressed just fine and all but the RL was hellbent on me playing a very specific class and never let me gear up any of my alts in fear I would change mains.
