Typically in my experience the person that steps up to the plate in what is often a rough time (losing a good raid lead) is almost never the right person for the job at least in the long term.In most cases they step up because they have a heart of gold; not exactly the best thing to have when ordering people around (too easily manipulated usually) in most cases and they are usually also really hard on themselves. Failing that you get the opposite "The raging prick" they step up out of necessity (or at the request of the guild) but they begrudge feeling the need to do so and thus turn into a monster whenever they are leading even if they are friendly/helpful person otherwise.Ive experienced both kinds heck I've been the latter and in my experience the best ones are the ones that can dance that line between nice and nasty, the reality is sometimes you just need to smack some of your raiders around the head, others require a gentler touch. That is not to say people who step up to the plate will always be one of those two but in a tight spot at least in my experience at least in the short term you'll get one of those two.
