@marcuswauson part 2:Your guild is also potential proof of an important other point:the 570 people in that mega-guild who don't get to raid because the leaders can only keep 30 folks straight at a time (since they're only human and not divine prophets...)...Those folks don't need to be in the position they're in. They got there because they were afraid to trust to a small set of people who became loyal to each other and put in the time and effort to do it together.Ie: You prove that small guilds can make it.The problem is that larger guilds make it so much faster, and easier. If I have a guild of 600 and my roster's folks can't get stable, I can replace them on a dime. AND my 570 folks questing and PUGing will give us good guild XP...So you get all these people who grind up that level, get their scorpion mount, and then get left idling as the choice folks get into the raid roster.Back before cata, a server might have hundreds of guilds in the 20-40 member range that support 1 to 2 raid rosters... and then a large set of 'casuals guilds' that just did their thing.They didn't need to all shut down and merge into the megas - but it was the fastest way up the hill.You could race up that hill at 60mph, or climb up it at 5mph... most people chose to race, and are now suffering the consequences of being the hare and not the tortoise.- It'll take time and a lot of bad drama for people to realize the tortoises are the real winners; the small guilds that worked together, like I presume, yours.
