Our guild has it's roots in a Vanilla launch guild and through-out expansions has had it's moments. Server 3rd in BC. After some huge officer issues mid Icecrown, which put our LK kill back about 3 months and made it a ten man kill as opposed to 25 man, things have jsut gone downhill. A small increase in interest after the sundering, but for some reason we cannot seem to hold on to new people. Or at least our retention rate is 1 in 10 at best. We have a mature and casual atmosphere, though raiding is taken seriously, and for the life of me, I don't know why people move on for uber guilds where they hardly get a look in to the roster where they had a pretty much guaranteed spot with us. Even at the start of Cata we were progressing quite well, we still lost people...I think the mature people who liked to play the game for the people and the fun of wiping and killing a boss under their own steam have all upped sticks. My theory is that the dumbing down of content has made it easier for people to get gear and look pretty in SW, and this means that pretty much anyone can kill stuff... this in turn means that the mature, well balanced people get fed up with idiots in dungeons and the odd PuG having massive egos because of their epeen. There is no patience in the playerbase anymore (the recent nerfs confirm Blizz know this), and those of us who are willing to raid one, maybe two nights a week are just left in the dirt, looking stupid because while we are able to kill a boss pre-nerf at the rate of one every two nights, we are behind all the other guilds and look like a bunch of nubs.
