I came home from work Monday and logged in to find my guild disbanded. Can't say I wasn't expecting it, though - drama had been building for weeks after the decision was made to merge with another guild (which was tank-heavy).The new guild was created, but th eold guilds stuck around as alt stables. Since I was in an alt-playing phase I never really got into join the new merged guild. But, as it always does when guild plans go off half-cocked, there was drama aplenty - people who found themselves in newly-bestowed officer roles let it go to their heads. The two GLs of the old guilds, it turned out, were just looking for an excuse to relinquish leadership to their counterpart as they were both sick of leading guilds.It came to a head when the guild "clique" went off on a hilarious KZ attempt with no prior strategy (besides the one rogue who claims to be a seasoned BC-content raider with his buddies on another server), an arms/fury main "tank" and no-one with much of a clue otherwise. After wiping repeatedly on the first boss, the levels of animosity apparently forced the GL to quit, giving control my the 2IC (my old GL) who likewise didn't want it. The quitter GL then went off on a gossip/drama/slander kick smearing names and was reinvited back to her old guild.My GL then transfered all his toons off to a server he had previously abandoned, but not before just plain disbanding the old guild, leaving a lot of us with homeless alts.My old guild have gone on to reform under a different name (mostly) except for a few who were the original core officer group (we also started our own *very* small new guild with no plans for expansion - an alt stable pretty much).It's things like this that make it really quite difficult to care enough to keep going sometimes.
