In my old casual guild we actually always ran pretty smoothly. I think it helped that most all the members had raided somewhat back in the day, so they knew things were supposed to work just didn't want to put in as much time when it came to killing bosses. They were all masters of their class, geared properly and such, just didn't want to be raiding 5 nights a week. In fact, most of them PvP'd pretty hardcore as well, which I tend to believe in the end can only help your PvE game 'cuz it really helps a player learn all the ins and outs of their, and other, classes. Anyways, just about the only thing we ever fought about was watching raid videos. One of the members was adamant everyone needed to watch a video to figure out Yogg (to be fair we probably should have as wiping at the beginning of phase 2 wasn't going to teach us anything about the next 3 phases) while another said he hated the idea of "reading up" and would rather learn by doing. Usually I'm supportive of learning by experience but when a fight lasts as long as that one you really need at least some sort of prior knowledge to do it. In the end we never did down him as a guild, but we continued on well enough, full-clearing both regular ToC and ICC, and getting 6/12 HM ICC as well.It really all just depends on the strength of character of your members I think. If you weed out the people who don't really want to be there, the ones that are just hoping for easy loot, you'll end up with a really classy bunch that'll just tear through raids (full-clearing Naxx in 4 hours? Yes please!)
