This happened to me during the start of Cataclysm.I had just left my old guild due to problems with the administration and didn't know what to do next. I couldn't make it into another raiding guild mostly due to availability (normal raiding times for my realm are too early for me in my local timezone) and the only late-night raiding guild on the realm was - which might come as no surprise - was my former guild.Since I couldn't find a guild I was getting ever-ready to just pack up and quit, try some other game I'd yet to play or another activity altogether. That's when I met another like-minded player on the same realm who also couldn't raid with his own guild. We banded together and got around 8 others to raid with.Now the only obstacle in my path is dial-up internet in a rural area which happened to crop up just as I had gotten the raiders ready (family moved).Ah, c'est la vie.My idea was to start my own raiding coalition that was completely independent of any guilds. Brought on because of how people seem to love guild perks too much and the fact that I wanted to raid, I simply asked for people who wanted to raid at the odd hours of the morning but didn't want to leave their guilds to do so.Instead of simply "giving up" or expecting someone to pick you up, get up and make the effort to do what you want to do yourself. Organise groups, ask some friends, possibly even mates you made in former guilds. My plan was foiled only by something that really is out of my control, but when you can't raid due to leaving a guild or nobody being online, then that's something you -can- fix.
