Over the last, month, I had left my guild in which I was close to becoming an officer, I had joined in pre-ulduar after leaving my guild of a long time since pre-wrath, it just didn't work out in the end.
But I left the newest guild due to the members not liking my methods of raid leading, but I'll summon it up into a few points:
- If you talk in vent when you aren't meant to, I'm going to tell you off.
- If you be a *insert bad word* in my raids, I will be that to you as well.
- Don't stuff around during boss fights, only talk when you are meant to, if you aren't a healer, tank or other important role, you just do your job, and do it properly.
- I try to do things ASAP so we can have fun, I make my raids fun for everyone, so don't be bad.
I had a few complications with 2 members, one being *the 8th best priest* on the server, yet, a very bad individual, he was later gkicked after an officer left due to the *8th best priest* saying bad things about him - so instead of the priest talking to the officer about the bad things he did what I consider, immature.
The other one was someone who turns up to raids in a bad state, and used donations to gain leverage, I had sorted any bad tensions with him, and I assumed the first individual had sorted it.
After the priest was gkicked there were some unhappiness, he was a good priest but if the officer has his name run through mud, what was done was done, he cannot expect to get away with it, he was a previous raid leader, his title was taken off him due to abusing his powers, his last warning and then he got gkicked.
So all through that and crap sorted aside, I was demoted as the priest used his gear to gain leverage and got me demoted.
Moral of the above story - I'd take better people, rather than better geared, to a raid. As a raid leader, I would like things to be efficiently done.
So that made me think how much of a bad community WoW is as a whole, so I decided to quit WoW for the time being, as I don't feel like forking out $50 to transfer to a more mature community (I hear the RP servers are more mature) well, I just can't fork out $50 for it.
So I decided to pick up Eve during the WoW phases in Ulduar, which as I hear has been nerfed to the point of PUGable.
So for now, I am playing Eve, it isn't as hardcore friendly as one would think, but it's good none-the-less.
