I'm new to raid leading and inexperienced at guild leading, and I've recently had my own run-in with the not-so-good times of RL'ing/GM'ing.For loots, I'm sticking to the practice of "Main-Spec rolls come first if it's an upgrade for you. Otherwise, it goes to Greed roll for ALL. The End.". It's how I like to keep it because I have little desire to get into long discussions about "Well, it's a bigger upgrade for the mage than the spriest so the mage should get it, screw the ROLL.". No, the spriest rolled a 97 and it's an upgrade for them. Their rolling MS is valid and they won, case closed. Also with my rules, it is implied that you can MS roll on anything that drops so long as it really is for your MS and it's an upgrade. Sorry if cloth pieces keep dropping, guess the clothies are getting geared tonight! And if the spriest won every cloth roll tonight, SORRY AGAIN, CHARLIE! Look at it this way, they're geared out now so they can't MS roll on squat next week. Hooray! :DAnd as for people "not getting along", I've wondered about the same thing myself. We're not progression, but we're progressing. Our guild and raid team is laid back. We show up for raid times, do it for 2 hours, then we're done until next week. We had a couple people join us for awhile and it seemed they were pretty good spirited and would be good for the group as a whole. Turns out they have little patience when things don't go the way they want them to and it turns into "I'm not raiding with that person this week", and then end up /gquitting on raid night because I wouldn't /gkick the person they didnt' like. OMG get over yourself.So aside from that, we're drama-free and like to stay that way. It's a game. We're here to play and kill stuff and have fun. If where you're at and what you're doing isn't FUN and fulfilling, you need to GTFO. PERIOD. This could mean leaving, or removing the source of the problem. Either change your environment, or find a more suitable one. It's really not that complicated, is it?...
