My guild has been dying. Slowly but surely. Our Raid Leader left us at the end of WotLK (a week after Hallion was released) and we just kind of told everyone to take a break (I'm an officer).Since Cata, our main tank took up the role of Raid Leader as it kind of suited the situation. We got through all the normal modes of BWD, TotFW, and BoT with relative ease, then a few of our healers decided to take a break. This lead to our 25 man guild becoming a 10 man guild. We never really did much in attempts for Heroic modes, we just figured we'd get everyone their 359 gear so they could be ready to go all out when Firelands hit. Since Firelands, our main tank and raid leader hasn't returned and has no plans to do such. All of the other officers seem reluctant to lead and I don't feel I can handle it without pulling my hair out. The guild leader has always been passive and behind-the-scenes when it comes to the guild. As an officer, I'm in charge of loot, recruitment, and setting up the raids. I've been trying to raid lead, but it's been far too stressful with the other aspects. Less of our core raiders are logging on for raids and I feel it's about time to call it quits. Tomorrow, I leave for a week long vacation. It'll be filled with soul searching on what my next step is with WoW or maybe life in general, quitting the game entirely.I feel the person in the letter is in a similar situation. A lot of guilds are. There are still plenty of people that want to raid, you just have to get them all together.
