Let's imagine for a minute that this system does go in place, but instead of charging every guild member 1,000g each week, the guild leadership does an audit of every guild members' personal stash of gold and charges accordingly. The richest guild members pay 4-5,000g each week and the poorest guild members pay 0-10g each week. 25,000g is collected every week, but in different amounts from different members. Everyone still has full access to all the gems, enchants, flasks, food, etc. for the raid. How would you all like this idea?Welcome to the world of taxes in the United States. Those who have worked and earned lots of gold will pay a heavy pentalty to access the same services as the person who lazily slobs along and contributes very little gold. A rough analogy, but everyone in the US reading this, live this every day and every year come tax season. Sadly, as we currently sit, more than a third of Americans pay NO taxes. Using the WoW example above, this would mean 8 or 9 of your weekly 25 raiders show up every week to raid, expecting to get gems, enchants, flasks and food, yet contributing NOTHING for their collection. How many of you would put up with this?
