Entitled brats, those recruits. To be honest, just dump them and try and find some other players to fill their spots. Let's see how many guilds they'll find where their tantrums are tolerated. What I find most hilarious though is that they're both DPS classes, and they're making demands while being a trial in a new guild....as if there aren't enough DPS classes out there that could potentially replace them.

You see, you'd think finding new recruits would be easy, but my raid guild fell apart because our server is drying up. everyone has a 10 man guild these days, and so we were one of 5 (horde and alliance) 25 man guilds, and there just weren't enough skilled players left over that were looking for a guild. wrath was a great time for raiding, since there was a great learning curve, it may have made certain raids too easy, but you could get new players in without a problem. Now, we have everyone on hard modes, and it seems a bit of a back peddle to go back to raiding normals so we can gear up 5 new dps, because people are getting burned out.the new hard modes are just so stupid, boring and not really challenging in a fun way.

@ Herman - You're absolutely right, and that's the same challenge my server is going through right now. Guilds (and players) that *could* have done normal modes of all existing raids have done so already, and can't (or won't, or don't want to) do heroics. It's safe to say that guilds and players that haven't downed normal Cho, Nef or Al'Akir likely won't until the next tier of raiding comes out. My guild managed to do Cho and Nef but heroic modes don't really interest me (and it feels like someone ALWAYS needs gear), so I'm taking a break until then.

@Jestin Elitist much? Plenty of guilds are still working through normal stuff, and will doubtless kill end bosses before 4.2. Some of us take our time.

@oneraindropAs I said, that applies to my server (and my experience). Everyone clears content at their own pace. May I suggest reading more carefully before self-righteous accusations?

@Jestin "It's safe to say that guilds and players that haven't downed normal Cho, Nef or Al'Akir likely won't until the next tier of raiding comes out. "You're so right, no sweeping generalizations here! How self righteous of me not to read more carefully! *roll eyes*

Jestin: My guild hasn't gotten through the normals.We also have the attendence boss kicking our butts. One day 14 people show, the 4 that don't get in don't show the next day, and neither do 3 that were in the raid... things like that.Cataclysm also killed a lot of people's desire to raid via gear restrictions. They need to do heroics to survive the raids, but don't want to do heroics because the heroics are a huge time sink and far too annoying. Add in lag spikes that weren't there in wrath which WILL kill you in certain boss fights and the people just plain don't queue up.I thought the new tier of heroics would help by giving more valor and nicer gear. They take too long. A heroic should be a half hour to an hour max. Sorry, but making me sit in one 2+ hours is A RAID. I don't that sort of free time and most people don't to be raiding every day of the week.
