    First GL while raiding, total bitch, did nothing for the guild and was a shit player.
    GL briefly at the start of Ulduar, nice guy, didn't want hassle tho and was strict about trade chat.
    GL through most of Ulduar, ToC, and then start of ICC normal, nice guy but a bit of a sop, wanted to keep everyone happy at all times and made a few bad decisions because of it.
    GL briefly through latter half of ICC normal and most of ICC hc, real driver, took no shit and ran things like a boss, shame the players he has to lead are mostly shit.
    Current GL, seems alright and keeps people in line mostly, doesn't mind when we run rampant in trade because most of the time we get the job done when raiding.

    At present I'm my own GM in a little 10man guild. I like to explain things to people. So when the opportunity arises to explain something to somebody I'm all over it. My guildies have mentioned that at this point they figure they can use recordings of my voice to put them to sleep at night. They still have flash backs to when we'd bring in a new player to a fight like H.Mimiron and I'd explain how we approached it in detail; they would awake hours later, dazed, wondering where they were. In my defense though I don't explain things twice to people unless asked (that would probably break the Geneva Convention). I don't think people are stupid, I'm just really thorough when I do explain things.

    I also have an incredibly bad habit of thinking out loud. So last night on the alt run when LK is reaching 40% and we have a Defile smack dab on our usual gather point I start my train-of-thought monologue, "May as well drag the LK over to where the Val'kyr is falling, oh the Defile is disappearing, I guess we could also gather over there, although we're already at the Val'kyr..." Now this sort of option-weighing is great and all if you only give people the final result. But in the midst of a phase transition people tend to pick up on phrases, not stream of consciousness monologues. So of course the raid split in two very neatly due to my "expert" leadership.
    You sound exactly like me. My guildies (and most notably my girlfriend) always bust my chops for explaining everything like people are morons, but that's not the case at all. I'm just thorough.. So if I start explaining something, I explain it in excruciating detail.

    Had a guild leader for a good year who claimed he was an African American man with twin daughters (who were born during 3/1. picture and all) and that he worked for the FBI. Funny thing was, he played the game a TON. Like 7-12 hours a day. So we all figured the FBI crap was bullshit. Not to mentioned that all this pictures he posted of himself and his "family" were a little hard to believe as he was apparantly this vary large African American man but he sounded like Topher Grace. But he was a really nice guy so we all just kinda went along with things.

    Anyway, near the end of 3.2 he started becoming this Nazi raid leader. Losing his shit on whoever made a mistake, calling out any tiny blunder, and demanding that responsibility be taken for poor performance. Wait... that sounds like an awesome guild leader, doesn't it? Well sure it would be if it were not for the fact that this was the very same guy who would afk on boss pulls because his Chinese food just got there. Not to mention, he took his main out of the guild and put it in our server's best guild while still keeping all his other toons in our guild and remaining GM. At one point in time we were on the Twins on 25, full all guildie group, and he (the GM/raid lead) drops out leaving everyone sitting there because the other guild needed him for their run.

    So yeah, leadership was shitty and things were further exasperated when we all started noticing that the Crusader Orbs we were collecting from runs were not showing up in the guild bank yet he was getting all this really nice crafted gear... and gold was disappearing from the guild bank too. Anyway, needless to say the shit hit the fan and he ended up running the guild into the ground. Was a real prick, cleaned out the guild bank, started a new guild, pulled members from old guild to new one, and lay all the blame on his 2nd-in-command.

    HERES THE FUN PART! Now I won't get into the details of how he did it but Mr. 2nd-in-command did some digging on Al Gore's Internet as he was extremely pissed off. To cut straight to the meat, our Topher Grace sounding African American guild leader sounded like Topher Grace because he of course turned out to not be African American. His STEP-FATHER however was most certainly African American and looked just like the photos MR. Guild Master was posting. And his sexy latina wife, who he claimed to be sexing up every single night, and whom he had twins with, strangely looked EXACTLY like his mother's daughter, who by proxy, was his sister. In fact, his sister looked so much like his wife that his sister had the very same photo on her account as the one Mr. Guild Master was posting on our forums.


    Anyway... all this showed up on our forums. There was uproarious laughter and groans at the incestuous revelations.

    And Mr. 2nd-in-command is now my new guild leader in an incest free, no FBI allowed guild of 10.


    TL;DR

    Basically, my last guild leader was a wheel-chair bound Mexican who wanted to be Black, posted pictures of his dad claiming it was him, had the hots for his sister, created a fantasy in which his sister was his wife and that they had twin daughters together, and thought he was an FBI agent.

    I'm curious as to how you know this, or, rather, why everyone still likes the guild if the leader is an imposter?

    My first raiding guild(pre-BC), we had a weird situation. Our GM had rl stuff happen so our raid leader ran things for awhile. The raid leader liked to hit on underage girls. He was like 22. It got pretty bad.

    Second raiding guild, first one of Wrath. Our GM had a life. I cant blame him, but he hit on every girl in the guild and apparently ended up living with 2 girlfriends. I envy him...

    Current raiding guild, our guild master harasses us in good fun and we harass him. Its great.

    Thanks, thanks for making my signature.
    For myself, i never got in a guild with a "weird" GL, so i can't contribute much to the topic, but i have to say that most of your stories guys are sorta amazing to read.

    Same guild, 3 different GM's (Allthough just switched places, but they where still officers).
    First GM, real cunt. Always had his favourites and made the others pay, but when the favourites aka officers did, it was no problem.

    Second GM, awesomefaceawesome, best raid leader and GM I have ever had, he was so perfect I wanted to make out with him, I didnt care if he yelled at me in raids.. Just made me so much more horny. He was fair to everyone, he was just as likley to yell att officers like members and tell them how fucking stupid they are and kicked them from the raid and got another one. And he was the best, he was the one that made us down bosses like Brutallus and Mu'ru, 50% of the downing was just because he was so awesome, loved that guy, shame he quit when we cleared Nax in wotlk because he thought the game sucked, and he is right.

    The third GM, well totaly good aswell, could be a cunt some times, but mostly a fair guy.

    It's a long story, but basically he told someone he trusted who then betrayed that same trust. He's a really nice guy though and he keeps the guild afloat, so none of us particularly mind his little deception, we just think it's funny. It doesn't really make a difference anyway, does it?

    Very very true. I already have one women running my life, why in gods name would I want another running my virtual life?

    Women suck, 90% of the women gamers I have come across in WoW, also suck. Not that they are bad players. Some are, some arent. But they use their gender as some kind of currency to get attention.

    My guild leader shouts at people that stand in fire and he stands in them too. And I am the guild leader.
