I have been in several guilds since I started to raid. I always seem to be the last one to "jump ship" when it starts to sink, but it is always the same story. All the really solid raiders who have outgeared everyone else will up and bail on the guild over the course of a day or two. Poaching is usually the biggest factor.I have several friends who have joined a guild that has them raiding six nights a week and while I'm still enjoying Kara runs, they are farming SSC. If you ask either of them they will tell you that they really don't like the guild, but they like the progress. They complain about the people and the schedule that they are forced to commit and that they really don't enjoy playing. Of course, they tell me all this just before asking me to come join them, to which I reply, "Are you insane? You just told me how much you hate it." Seriously, is progression so important that you will give up the joy you have in playing the game?Yes, casual guilds are very hard to hold together. There is a lot of work in just keeping it going with enough people who care about the guild, but at least it isn't a second job.
