This is kind of strange. And typical. This guy was put in the RL position by necessity. He stepped up when no one else would. Not even the officers. He isn't doing that great a job. So why doesn't someone else step up? That's the only other option. But people like to coach from the armchair. They don't want to have to be the one in the spotlight. @OP. You need to take this position over. If you know what is going on, then you need to do it.

Or, if unwilling/unable to take over, then go elsewhere. Or learn to live with the sub-par raid leader. You can't force him to be the raid leader that you want him to be - he is who he is.

It's a game. Try playing it for fun, and being a little less driven. Raiders. Sheesh.

Exactly.If you are competent enough to know:1. Who does what wrong and what they can do to fix the mistake.2. How to criticize players in an effective manner.3, Can keep your own mood up to support morale.Then why aren't you raid leading and planning raids instead of complaining about someone else who took a big leap when you weren't willing? If anything this player isn't the problem so much as your officer's indifference to the raid team. I mean you do fully understand that no one wants this roll, but you continue to backseat drive only without all the responsibility.We were in a similar situation at the beginning of Cata. As a Senior Officer it was my job as a competent player and as a contributor to my guild's success, so I assume the raid leader position hesitantly and with the condition that I will be replace by someone better. Simply put, if you aren't willing to shoulder the role yourself you should at least take a step back and see that this role SUCKS.
