The more open and honest approach, and the way to rally more people to your side without appearing to be a weasel would be to try to make change yourself. And yes, this is the approach I took. We had a guild in a similar situation. about 6 months ago: Kara on farm, downing Gruul weekly no problem and building our ZA team. Then the guild leader decides we need to do VR. (without 25 ppl geared or skilled enough). The TK attempts all failed. Then he decided Solarian would be a good idea. Mind you we have not even stepped into SSC. All the attempts were failures and it started to chafe those of us who were good players and knew what we were doing.So it started with 2 of the officers and i speaking to him. Then we started to demand change or we would stop raiding with the guild. This went on for 2 weeks as we tried to change lots of things that were bad for the guild's morale: make a raid end time (there was none), enact some sort of loot policy other than "i think this person needs it more" (loot council is fine, just call it that and write the rules down somewhere), gear standards for instances using some sort of standard (imba or the like).After a conversation with him about a particular run (letting a paladin in 90% blues attempt to tank ZA) was like talking to stone wall, I decided to find another guild, and left in good conscience.Attempting the method here and being underhanded about it can completely backfire on you. If it fails because, say in this case, you don't know the history of the guild, you could get booted and people be told in other guilds "don't take this guy, he is a sneaky dishonest player who tried to start drama".
