PUG is the best way to get recruits and keep people. Its not very realistic to expect people to wait around for you to build a core before you start something. That phase can and will last for months, so even if they leave quickly after joining then I don't think its them being impatient. Just realistic.Your progress won't be smooth and it takes a large amount of work to keep things running smooth on the GM/RL side, but its the only way to get off the ground.I disagree with points 1 and 3. Unless they raid at some odd time of day, there is little to no uniqueness to leverage with a small guild mid level guild that's trying to put together a raiding core. That's basically the rule for all guilds now. The mega guilds are the exception.Steer clear from the alliance way of going about things. Been burned too many times with arraignments like those. They either poach your raiders or you end up poaching theirs. Either way someone ends up looking like a jerk. And mergers hardly ever go smoothly cause I always end up with a situation similar to a guild just poaching players. Some of your guildies will raid, and the others land on permanent bench. Pretty hard to swallow a situation where you spend all that time and effort getting a good player to join up with you just to see them get nearly permanently sat cause the merged guild now has too many of their class.
