The server I played on for over 2 years has seen many of its leading guilds fold since BC came out; they're not as famous as D&T or Risen, you'd never know who they are unless you played on that realm (US-Kael'thas, in case you're wondering). Be it because of guild drama where a good chunk of core raiders leave for another guild, or a guild shutting down its raid schedule due to lack of people signing on, lack of interest, recruitment issues, etc, it happens all the time.WoW is in a weird spot right now, people are either tired of TBC content and impatiently awaiting WotLK, thus don't see a point in hardcore raiding (akin to pre-TBC months where many were temporarily suspending their subscription) or just plain tired of this game and looking forward to big names coming out like AoE and WH:O (regardless whether they're valid competitors to WoW, time will tell).

One thing to remember is that whenever words like "commitment" and "dedication" come up, you're no longer talking about a game. You're talking about a SPORT, where dedicated time and effort to teamwork is what matters.There's an overwhelming number of casual players here, who are only interested in having fun and chatting with friends. If you ask them for time investment and commitment, you're simply not going to get a response from them.The smart thing to do is ask yourself: "Will this guild EVER be doing ANY raiding of ANY sort?" If yes, it's a hardcore guild and it needs to advertise and recruit as such. Suddenly announcing that your "casual, friendly, leveling guild" now demands dedication and commitment is a surefire formula for disappointment.
