So talk about guild drama….wow did it get nasty in one day…..
As far as I knew everything was travelling along all fine and then a post was made on the forums by a guildie asking for raids to be organised a little better, so a few posts were made by the GM and others then I made a post about having a raid bitch to organsie raids 2 days in advance and that perhaps we coudl run things without the GM being online…somehow, I am still nto sure how, that caused a major blow up to the point where the GM responded saying my post made him want to quit WoW and that I had not listened to anything previsouly posted and that all our effort was wasted etc…anyway he was pretty nasty….so then a couple of people arced up to defend me – I might add i didn’t post again after my first post….and from there the topic just got worse and worse.
The whole idea was that we were requesting to have some raid organisation before raid night, but the officers and GM’s kept yelling and screaming about people missing out on raids should stop being such babies? I am not sure how they got to the conclusion any of us were complaining.
Anyway in the end one of the GM’s called my friend an “illiterate fuck”, that was as far as I was going tro take it so I gquit. I was not prepared for all my old guildies to quit with me, so we trundled back to MA last night. Upset, tired and a little shocked was I…..
I then got an email last night advising me of a comment posted on my blog, pleas refer to the previous post for that little gem. I am not entirely sure what this person means as I used to chat to 3 people, and only one had an accent that I used to comment about, but I didn’t realise that talking to people = flirting…I shall have to remember that with my current guild mates as I would not want them to think I was trying to get them all in the sack for one giant gangbang!
Anyway if nothing else I have learnt that no matter what you may think or how well you are playing with others, some people are cunts and will be that way forever.
Please find below the post I made which if you refer to the comment posted on the previous blog, was be posting shit all over their forums?
No offence meant here, if you want people to take initiative we need to know it is ok to do so?
The other night we we were told a run wouldn’t be going because you and Sere were not online, now I am no expert but we had 2 tanks online with a third who could have tanked the trash/OT in ICC easily enough. IN the end you both came online so all was well, but by then the raid was not started until almost 9pm server time. Granted I am referring to a 25 man here, and not 10 mans.
However the 10 man runs can be sorted the night before, you guys are very particular about people signing up on the forums so use that sign up, or the addon Koli linked. If people are not signed up don’t base the groups on them, end of story. We have more than enough people in the guild with alts all over the shop who can handle almost every situation possible.
I used to be in a guild, a very long time ago, that had one officer dedicated to raid organisation. We had to sign up at least 2 days before said raid and that officer kept track of everything – who was in, out, guaranteed next spot etc.
We had 2 sign ups each night for the 2 different teams and if you signed up for Team Mouse on day one, you signed up for the same team on day 2, day 3, day 4, so you had to ensure you were available for all relevant days (or at least note fi you couldnt make which day).
That officer was then able to approve and queue up people for raids 2 days in advance which meant the raid could get organised within 3 minutes and there was no stuffing about and people were sat out if they were not online.
The issue Muffy is you are being RL/GM/Spec person etc etc etc, you need to delegate and tell people to shove it if they are not happy with that. And use mods and people to help achieve those goals of running more smoothly. Says me who didnt delegate anything :p
This is more diffcult with the influx of people have had due to us joining, we added a 10 man group to the guild, which has caused more headached for the organising of raids, however I am more than happy to be the raid bitch if you need one and set up the calenders etc and approve groups etc so that when you log into game you are ready to go and all the raid leaders can just invite everyone who is approved etc.
I guess what I am trying to say is, you want us to take initiative, but on many occassions things do not go ahead without you and Sere online and that has been noted as the reason, so can there be some discussion about what we expect from the people who are able to fill vital roles, because as I understand it, if you were to take a holiday, we would not be raiding?
