Some very good points brought up here, that I think are worth commenting on. DavidC is on the right track for investigating the de-motivations of the guild.As for "blame," a leader has a lot to think about in terms of the guild and progression. It takes a lot of research into strategy, gear progression, skill of the raid, motivation and availability.Questions to think about:-How much time can we spend learning an encounter before we become jaded/frustrated?-How much time can we give each raid night before becoming fatigued and lose focus?-Are we bored with the content we're plowing through, or are we content having "farm nights"?-Who do we need to gear up for bigger challenges?-What backup plans do we have for a brutal night?-Who is being left out of the raid that wants to participate?-Who is included in the raid that really isn't participating much?In response to J, who states that some of the unrest is coming from lazy raid members in greens with a sense of entitlement; they may feel entitled, but that doesn't warrant an invite. If having an undergeared, undermotivated character in your raid is going to slow down your progression, or cause distress among others, carefully consider whether or not they should be getting an invite just because they want it. To me, handing out invites like candy to people who aren't willing to gear themselves up, or turn down 5-mans and heroics (and you should invite them to these to prove skill and build teamwork and improve gear) is poor leadership.
