This is very similar to a situation I encountered in my last guild. I was part of the first team (as said, just because we were leveled and geared first, due to dedication mostly).The guild leader decided that the first team needed to be split up and wanted more progression at the same time. Most conversation that followed was one on one, or hidden from other people and / or done over forums alone, rather then in a Vent meeting or something similar. Despite several suggestions offered it ended with "my way or the highway" from our guild leader... The entire first team chose the highway! In my opinion this shows the importance if open communication and to be willing to listen to solutions offered. Handled properly we would still be in the guild which would have benefited all.A solution we have spoken about is to have two normal raid nights in which team A and B get mixed to get experience / gear / valor from well known bossed. On the third night, the best team is chosen to progress the guild for the purpose of progression as well as to open up new bosses for both teams. Sadly we never got to try if that would have worked.

Unfortunately Harro, we've tried that solution as well. We raid Tues & Weds for farming bosses and getting people geared and VP's. I still get whispers on our Sunday progression night from a priest who has the raid awareness of a rock and wants to guilt me about "not being good enough".

A guild I was in had a similar issue. The A Team had formed a tight knit group that was progressing in ICC. The B Team lead had issues and was out for a while. Part of the agreement was that once Team A had progressed far enough, they'd also sub in some other folks to learn the fights.Team B formed up and start doing some stuff to gear up in prep for raiding. Team A then decided rather than sub in anyone, that they wanted to do Heroics. Guild split, all of Team A and buddies hopped to another guild.For me, I was an Alt for Team A. I didn't have the full experience and gear, but when someone failed to show on a night, I could hold my own. Plus all the cloth was mine since they were all upgraded and stuff. I sort of fell between the two Teams and after the split I just went my own way with a bad taste in my mouth.
