I was until recently an officer in small-ish guild, we didn't have people queueing out the door for 25 man raiding so to speak but we aren't tiny. During my tenure as an officer we had this happen to us twice. First incident was during TBC, a rather catty gossip loving member formed herself a little clique by getting very personal with other members and then took her little entourage with her. Afterwards it was a lot of "friendly" whispers trying to coax people away. Their guild website was also filled with little jibes at us. Suffice to say, she couldn't lead the guild or raids and would basically accept anyone to bolster their numbers, they failed miserably.Second incident was near the end of WoLK and was far more unpleasant. Again it started with a clique forming who after initially concocting a plan to turn us into a hardcore raid guild with a DKP system which was roundly rejected by the majority of officers. They then began to hatch a little scheme to split the guild up, making malicious rumours about myself, the gm and other officers who dared disagree with them. Even had the cheek to use our vent server. When it came to a head, they did a mass gquit with pre-prepared statements on the guild website which was shortly after taken down by our webmaster (also one of the splitters and paid for by a member who didn't leave) and took control of the aforementioned vent server. In the weeks after they kept whispering members to "explain" what they did, myself included (suffice to say a polite but very honest rebuttal was given). Anyhow, after a couple of months 3 of the four officers stopped playing and the remaining one couldn.t handle it, another fail guild. Some members who left tried to get back into our guild but the manner in which they left didn't leave them many friends.Suffice to say, remember who your friends are. The other people who helped you raid before you back stab them okay? Wall of text over, hang in there stressed I know how you feel!
