Officer burnout is running really rampant in our guild. We had to push in WotLK to get people to log on toward the end, and do mass recruiting. We had to gear people all over again, and in some cases--aid them in their quest to learn to raid. The officers were tired at that point, and then Cata dropped, and it's been non-stop running ever since. I don't know if it's just our guild, but there has been a lot of "me" behavior, and a lot less "us". That makes it very difficult to form cohesion. I've been playing since the middle of Vanilla, and I've never been so tired in a videogame. I look for excuses to not log on and listen to the complaints & all the whining. We're doing ok progression wise--but it's slowed down a bit in the last couple of weeks. Almost all of the farming has fallen on the officers shoulders because no one else wants to devote their time for so little payout (flasks, etc). It's also bad because our tanks & healers...we're down to 4 tanks, and 5-6 healers (because healing became challenging). That means that every tank and every healer--has to log on every raid day (I'm a healer), so the burnout from that is incredible too. I think that Wrath has made people lazy, and now--they want things spoonfed to them again, and it's not happening. Most of us are in our 20s-30s, which means we have families, jobs, other commitments, and so...not having that slowdown, breathe-time...has caused some issues.
