Apr 12th 2010 10:50AM Asking people to do their best isn't soley the province of "work". We are all punished, by reality, for doing a bad job. Don't look both ways, get hit by a car. No one is there, nor they should be to keep me from walking in to traffic. Doing well, while much decried by society today, is the only way we progress. We don't progress by taxing ability, and rewarding mediocrity. It doesn't work for societies, it doesn't work at work, it doesn't work at home, and it doesn't work in game.
In game in a raid by friends are punished if I do bad work, maybe it is an issue of pride, but asking them to pay for my laziness would be wrong. Or maybe it was the way I was raised.
Apr 12th 2010 10:10AM This type of system will always cause a downward spiral in responsibility, while causing an upward spiral in costs. If you can't trust people to come prepared with mats, there is no reason to think they are prepared to do their jobs. Fire them. My employer doesn't supply people with breakfast and lunch and a supply of 5 hour energy to do their jobs, even though we all agree these things may be important.
My guild will throw a fish feast down, which I have never used, because it isn't the best in the game, and I don't want to use 2nd, or 3rd or 4th best.
If you want people to be lazy and irresponsible, by all means tax your good players and supply the bad ones withe verything they need.
If not, fire the lazy ones, and reward the good ones.
Mar 22nd 2010 2:21PM Scott you are dead on. Assuming these guys are helping you get through content, they deserve the loot every bit as much as Guildmates. If I was puggin that group and it happened on the first boss, I would absolutely walk, but what is worse is if it happens on the last boss of the night, not only would I leave the group but I'd make sure that eveyrone I knew had that guildname on their blacklists.
On the other hand, being classy gets your guildname out there as such.
Maybe you don't care, but I take what I do with those guildtags over my head pretty seriously.

Holy and Disc for priests are both great fun, and a great challenge.
