I'm a relatively new GM. My guild is still in it's honey moon phase, so what I say might sound like I am in denial, but I firmly believe that my guild is a semi-hardcore guild, with a social twist. For starters, many of us played together in other guilds, which is where the vibe of friendship comes from. As we've brought in outsiders we've brought in people that were groups of friends themselves, and many of us have taken the time to spend time with those groups, so that people enjoy spending time together. We raid 9 hours a week, 3 hours a night and within 3 weeks have cleared a number of meta achievements towards DS drakes, and are 1/8 H full clearing DW every week, each week on a slightly more challenging difficulty as we work through the chromatic champion achievement. Not every member of my team pulls the exact same amount of weight as someone else, but every person carries their own weight. Some members are better at some aspects than others, but we don't sit people based on performance, or for specific classes. We were careful when we created our team to pick classes which we could get the most bang for our buck out of in 10m, while still keeping the tier distribution relatively fair. We've set the standard from the beginning to be a guild which pushes itself and yet still cares about it's members. Our policies are clearly communicated and we settle disputes as fairly as we can, consistently in the same manner. As a result we have a guild which has found success and staddles that fence between hardcore and casual in my eyes.To our realm, we're doing amazing things, because few guilds actually transfer there, much less go in, in 3 weeks and begin clearing hardmodes or achievements .. but to us, this is hardmode raiding on a casual schedule, with a social focus so it doesn't feel "hardcore".
