Jun 14th 2010 1:16PM We're seeing this in our guild too, at first I thought it was written by someone in the guild it's so close to the way we've been feeling. But honestly, it sounds like the GM just wants to maintain control. We encourage our guild mates to go out and raid with other guilds, because it lends to more experience and new insight. To borrow a terrible phrase, "the GM needs to let you go and hope that you'll fly back." You may just come back with some new insight that'll get you past your current hurdle. Two of the best officers in my guild have their "mains" in other guilds. But they always show up for our raids and they contribute when they can. I've seen too many guilds where it's more of a dictatorship than a partnership, it sounds like your guild may just be another one of them. The biggest advise I can offer is try to coordinate your schedule where your current guild doesn't feel your absence. If the GM has issues with you pulling a toon out, then it's HIS loss, especially if you are one of his most active officers.
