@chris w" It would not be so sad had not blizzard destroyed raiding as it existed in Vanilla and BC when it was just fine and you didn't need to min/max, force players into cookie cutter builds, and all the recent BS.Then to 'fix' the problem they created, they just make new problems."rose tinted glassed alert! raiding in vanilla was a million times worse than now, there were entire specs that were totally unviable ( druids had to be healers, warriors were the only tanks, paladins did blessings every 5 mins and afk'd apart from that and so on)TBC raiding was the king of min/maxing and class stacking, in sunwell it was impossible to do without shamens and other classes were rotated in and out of raid for buffs( paladins etc) guilds forced players to respecc leatherworking for the over powered drums of battle and so on. As much as people hate wrath it was the most accessible expansion ever and did get more people into the raiding game than every before.at least now most specs are viable in normal raiding and the class stacking is only really prevalent in hard mode content. now back to the article, the people who poached the guildies from their old guild have already burnt the bridges. I would have kicked their alts immediatly, asked them once as to their reasons for what they are doing then put them on ignore. to get the honest answer it would probably be best to ask some of the middle of the road people who left recently as to why they left and to throw a general ask out to everyone in the guild for feedback as to what issues you were having.A casual guild that does high end raiding is virtually impossible to achieve without a large group of people who know each other very well for a long time. its cool if you can do it but mainly attempts to do this are not successful.
