Maybe call a guild meeting and figure out what your guild's priorities are. If everyone is content to down a few bosses and call it a week, then let the hardcore raiders know that your guild isn't what they're looking for and ask them to move on. If they refuse, kick them. It may be that others would like to see more raiding as well, not just the few "elite" players. If this is the case, you have two options:1. Approach the two hardcore players with the suggestion that they break off to form a second guild that will be associated with your current one, but not actually part of it. Individuals who are interested in taking on more than a couple of bosses could be encouraged to join this second guild. Emphasise to the rest of your guild mates that this won't be seen as abandonment or jumping ship, and that should they choose to return to your guild that option will be available. You could create a chat channel to speak back and forth between guilds so that people don't feel as separated from their friends. This way, the people who are content to take out one or two bosses a week can continue to do so and people who enjoy the challenge of taking on new bosses get to see new content.2. Suggest that the "hardcore" raiders stay within the guild but create their own raid team. Let them take on the challenge of organizing raids and give them the option of letting people outside the guild be part of their team. People who are willing to commit to the raid team can be encouraged to join, but emphasize the fact that the hardcore players will be in charge, and that ultimately it will be the hardcore players who decide whether a player comes to the raid or not. This may very well lead to the hardcore group breaking off to form their own guild anyway, in which case you get them out of your hair. :)
