The whole social dynamic of a guild can change inside a raid, for better or worse. A guild primarily of jokers and chatterboxes might get quiet during a raid, or vice versa. Sometimes it's just how the players respond to the stress inherent to raiding, or sometimes it's because of the influence (or lack thereof) of the leadership. Sometimes it works out, but others it can cause problems when suddenly players that all got along great before are leaning different ways on the matter. I've had many problems within my own raid group with such an occurrence. Outside raiding, we're all friendly and chatty, and get along great. But get us in a raid, and suddenly half the group is telling the other half to STFU and raid, with the whole raid being annoyed with each other, and our raid leader is too laid back to do anything about it, which is probably a big factor in our horrid raid progression.
