Very interesting well written articles about guilds and end game raiding.I believe that the class of raiding guild you are has nothing to do with the amount of fun you have or the amount of time you spend raiding.I believe we should consider three levels of raiding guilds (not just two): 1. casual or softcore; 2. moderatecore; 3. hardcore.While people in all types of raiding guilds likely read forums like Boss Killers about how to do the instances, I believe the cut off point between casual and moderatecore is that in moderatecore guilds many people in the guild read forums like Elitist Jerks and try to maximize their own character potential and help others to do so as well. In the hardcore guilds it is a requirement either implicitly or explicitly stated that everyone is expected to play their characters to their maximum potential, both individually and as part of the team plan. In the moderatecore guilds this is fostered and encouraged but not a requirement to be in the guild. In the truly casual guilds most people don’t worry about maximizing their character raid use as they don’t have the time or inclinaton to do so.People will still get into the wrong level of guild for them even if you advertise what you expect of character management, as in game dreams and real life reality may not be mutually compatible for all sorts of reasons.Thanks for the interesting insights.RegardsAux, Amicus Credo, Skywall, a moderatecore evening raiding guild
