The last weeks we’ve had some problems in the guild. It’s weird cause we had one of the best raids ever weeks before that where we cleared all farm content in a few hours, only bosses left were the new ones we’re trying to get on heroic.
But now we can’t seem to get enough people for a raid. We are a 25 man guild with three raid days and around 30 raiders (some tryouts). We should have enough people for a good raid. But the problem is the attendance. Some people have work or always sign off late and too often, but some people don’t sign off at all, they just don’t show up, and no message. Shouldn’t be that hard to just write a short message on the forum. And write down who’s not showing up, and telling them but it doesn’t seem to help.
Well, I’m not an officer but I still try to help with all this cause I don’t think our officers do enough. But wish they did, cause it can’t continue like this.
I hate when I rush home for raid, and we’re not enough for a raid, it’s a waste of time. It’s only three raid days, how can it be so hard to just have those three evenings free.
Sometimes we do 10 man instead and they’ve talked about going two 10 mans, but I don’t want that cause I know then it’ll be like it has been before in other guilds. Group 1 is the best group with all the officers and best players, the best setup and the best motivated people, who can raid anytime. And group 2 is the rest, and I know they’ll put me in group 2.
If it was my guild I wouldn’t accept that people don’t sign off and low attendance won’t get raider rank, I would demote and kick people who are no use for us or people who fail over and over again, I wouldn’t keep them and lie to them just because they are our friends. Maybe we’re a friends guild but why does that have to mean we can accept bad players and wipe for hours every raid day with no progress, or maybe not raid at all cause people don’t show up.
How can we fix these problems?
