I have a smoother version of That Guy in my guild. I was on the main team as a paladin healer known for my quick thinking and vast patience on wipe nights.Then That Guy came along, and i was shoveled into the backup team because he was a irl friend of the GL. Still, the days passed and i've did my best in the back-up team. Eevntually That Guy started to behave better, even though he does some fatal errors here and there.My 2 cents for you:- Whatever happens, be yourself and don't go away form that. Speak with everyone around, including firends and family, if they understand the subject (or at least bring the talk ot their level). If you stop being the one all in our guild like, then you'll give advantages to That Guy.- Never exclude him 100%, talk with him sometimes, and show the reason behind your strategies, your ideas, YOUR CHOICES THAT MADE YOU A VALID RAID MEMBER OF THE GUILD. Be open to improvement, like dear Ms. Robin suggested. And most of all, remember that today's foe may be tomorrow's friend, as this did happened in my real life...twice.

Pretty solid advice. The only thing I would add to it is people like "That guy" tend to burn out or change guilds. To the OP: your willingness to get better is what makes you a good player and a good guildy. Keep doing what you can when you can. Also as they have said, Talk to the GM yourself. Don't assume his wife tells him everything. Even if she did he might just think you are trying to stir things up by not talking directly to him. Talk to him, get all your concerns out in the open.
