I have been down the road a couple of times and experienced the amicable and the meltdown. Both, I believe, were totally warranted. Whatever the case, its a natural part of life and your belief should be who do you side with. Make the decision and stay with it.In retrospect, the meltdown was actually easier considering. The guild leader and his officers were very much into cronyism and we subtlety bleeding dkp off other people while feigning ignorance as to why we were on farm status for things like MC and both the leader and his hunter officer had full BS while most other hunters had 1. Someone clued us in and said to watch the numbers on the next dkp spread and take SS before. Showed they were nearly doubling DKP for officers while giving the regular attendees a tenth of it. The big factor was a druid piece dropped and they showed the DKP leader (non officer) actually getting his DKP reduced by 10 to be outbid by the officer, then the 10 going back up.Needless to say, we all posted in a mass quit on the boards (which got deleted) but we hosted ss over on the realm boards and effectively obliterated the guild (and blackballed the leader and 3 of the most apparent cronies). Drama aside, we formed a new guild, took the old DKP to the new and actually came out better. Amicable on the other hand was harder since a lot of us liked each other but officer drama caused a rift to form that never fully healed. While we got offers to come across to the new guild, I and a friend of mine decided to stay and have not regretted it since....not only have we become mainstays in a lot of the raids, we have become better suited to perform the duties we need in the raids by actually participating more. Add to this that the casual nature of our guild has remained as such and it goes without saying we like where we are.
