This happened in a Guild I am recently in. We had a few people /gquit over it. They are raiding happily and more frequently then in their old guild. I would shop around, there is nothing binding anyone to any guild unless they are RL Friends...

Something similar happened to me in my previous guild.We had some diffrent ranks in the guild: Recruit, Social(Who are not allowed to raid), raiders, officers and GL.The day after I became 80 we tried Naxx 25 man, just to see what we lack. It was a guild run with some pugg people.I was the lowest on the dps of the hunter from the guild in that run, as all of them had done UK Hc and had the crossbow (I am a hunter btw) and had better gear then me all over.Some time after it was a new raid, 10 man nax.I noticed that I was demoted to social and were denied to even sign up for the raid. I asked the GL why I had been demoted and he just answered that it was to many hunters in the guild that he just had to pick some of us and demote us.Social are treated as they are not in the guild and have to sign up on the webpage.Hunter recrution was closed, and therefor no chance of me getting in again.So basicly what he told me when I had been demoted was that they had invited to many new hunter and had to forbid some hunters that had been there a time from raiding at all, ever with the guild./gquit and finnished with those guys. If I were you I would do the same, tank. If you are told you are not allowed to raid and that is your desire, just leave them.

ya seniority blows. I've been getting the shaft since WotLK started. To be somewhat fair we have way too many tanks. 3 warriors, 1 paladin, 2 ferals, and any 1 dk whos raids dps. Of those 1 warrior is a reroll from his long-time rogue, and is has title "raid leader." Going down the list War2 is senior O, Pally is Class Lead. Both ferals have been forced down to kitty dps except for the rare fight and lack of tanks. When I came to the guild in BC, war1 war2 and the pally weren't playing, and the ferals were occasionally on for raids. So when I came in I was immediately MT-ing all raids was mt for vashj, kael, and illidian kills. Now I still get to raid tank, but im the very last person on the list. I'm "bidding" for upgrades from blues to 25man epics, while the other guys are bidding on upgrades from 10mans. Due to the loot system(4 tanks bid on an item, 1 tank gets, next item drops only 3 tanks can bid and so on untill all 4 tanks have gotten a raid peice), and their seniority within the guild I've been shafted on most BIG upgrades for me.So with my new work schedual, I've just been working on my shaman alt instead of my war, and no longer reschedual my outside life around raids.

At least in my guild they have set up rotation for people who want to raid so that it gives people a chance to get gear and not be screwed out. Something just seems fishy here though. The GM had a different main obviously because he switched to a warrior right? If he switched and he already had two tanks to begin with who were geared... what was his motivation? Seriously, I would wonder about why they intentionally are sitting the druid out. It seems an intentional thing here. It could just be that he enjoys tanking and decided to be a selfish a-hole by sitting out competition, but any smart person would do rotation here.

This wouldn't happen to be Chicken on Rice on Dark Iron would it?
