I stopped raiding with my "casual guild that raids" for this reason, and I think our guild has lost many well-played raiders for this reason. It's a great guild with great people. We have one frequent raider that does excellent DPS but is exceptionally clueless and is pretty much impossible to keep alive, especially during boss fights. Out of a dozen attempts on Yog, this person was directly responsible for at least 6 wipes (even after being repeatedly told to stay out of the green clouds) and their subsequent deaths on the times we survived caused a lack in DPS making it difficult on the rest of the group.It sucks because this person is a very nice person... but the frustration they brought out in me wasn't worth it. Raid and guild leaders know this person is a liability and never really do anything about it so I am no longer raiding and yet not necessarily willing to leave the guild. I just don't see myself raiding as people aren't held responsible for their performance and at some point what is the point of playing the game if you cannot advance through raiding? -for me anyway.Go ahead... call me an elitist. Maybe some people are perfectly happy to carry others, but if you are raiding then you should be pulling your own weight or you are cheating 9 or 24 other people.
