@you are not happy being subbed out?Yes I can totally understand that you think the possibility that you miss one or two bosses every now and then is more important the the rest of the guild raiding. Yes, I see your point entirely./gkick.Right, lets get some new dps, and update the recruiting poilicy to specify no arseholes this time.

It is for these reasons that we avoid recruiting pairs like THE PLAGUE. Anyone who applies as a friend of a current raider is reviewed with an especially large microscope in hope of avoiding future drama. That doesn't mean it can't happen, but you always gotta be careful with recruiting pairs.I run with a roster of 12-13, and other guild leaders tell me that I'm taking a risk. We rotate almost every fight to ensure that a player only sits 1 or 2 fights a week, and that we can avoid wasted drops.

Every pair we have recruited has caused problems. Without fail. We won't recruit them anymore.

Hate to bear the bad news: You can't say "no arseholes". Either they turn into them, or you discover that they were arseholes all along by tripping over their foibles. And there's always the possibility of redeeming some arsehole. Or dancing around the triggers. Ah, politics.

Just because I feel the need to defend pairs as, more often than not, I'm part of one. 6/10 of my characters on my main server comes as a pair with my sister. We enjoy playing together, and try and level as close together as possible.Until max level, this is horribly limiting, I won't lie, but I enjoy spending time with her and it makes leveling far more bearable.The good thing about recruiting the pair of us is that we have different interests within the guild. I LOVE to run dungeons and raid. It is my favorite part of the game. And the guild knows I'm happy to jump on any of my four available alts and run with them whenever asked. My sister will run a dungeon when asked, but she won't do current raids as she doesn't like the pressure. She's happier to socialize with the guild and help lowbies.We each have a seperate niche, and it works for us.
