If you are applying to a raiding guild, you are joining a community. You're volunteering to spend some number of hours per week online, working toward a common goal. This is definitely not for everyone, and while you may think we're being elitist, there's really no other intent other than to make sure you can follow simple instructions and that we aren't wasting your time or ours. Especially for off-server people, we can't simply grant a trial, the poor substitute of a guild app is all we have to go on, and believe us, we feel terrible when someone spends real money to transfer and then turns out to be a bad fit.Wow isn't a job and shouldn't come before RL, but that doesn't mean that you should be able to waste 24 other people's time (and money) or treat people poorly. We spend so much time together in game and in vent that it seems almost ludicrous to not do the bare minimum to see if someone is going to be able to play nicely with others.My guild is working on the last phase of LK 25 man and has 2 10 man groups that have killed the LK and are through the first 4 heroic modes. We're not anywhere close to top 5 on our server and we're decidedly "mediocre" on a global scale. Believe me when I say its not elitism, but a simple desire to have our guild function well and get along, we probably could have been more progressed but we lost some key people right after we killed Sindragosa 25 to RL and as a tight knit small group that's fine but it definitely impacts our performance. If someone can't even be bothered to tell us the bare minimum about themselves or follow simple instructions, how can we hope that they are going to fit in and be an asset to our raid?
