Smaller guilds may not have a healing lead, but they do have a raid leader and a guild leader (usually the same person), who can do the same job. This article, though, seems more directed at guilds that :
1. Have the ability to swap healers
2. Have someone directly in charge of the healers
and 3. Have mature, knowledgeable players.
The note about 'asking a legit question' and it coming across as a tantrum, more often than not, when someone is told to leave a raid for any circumstance, there's less "Excuse me, what exactly was the problem, so I can fix it?" and more "OMG U F*CKING F**GOT, Y U KICK ME?!?!?! I HOPE U FAIL!!!" and such. And, THOSE are the people that Matt aimed the kick comment to. The immature, disruptive players who also can't keep up with their position's demands.
BUT, props on the healing channel comment. I may have to use that
Aug 12th 2011 4:35PM You're missing the point. If the player flips out and isn't mature enough to realize what's going on, even after being told it'll be explained after the raid, then they need to be kicked.
It seems people like you, Lost Sul, and Adorno are simply taking it as 'gkick the bad healer', when that's not the case. READ the ENTIRE article and don't just skim for shit to complain about.
Aug 12th 2011 4:32PM If you politely explain the situation to the healer, or at the very least tell them that you'll discuss why after the raid, and they blow up on you, they deserve to be kicked. 'Fun' does not equate in to 'allowing people to flip the fuck out'. 'Fun' does not equate to carrying someone not up to the task. If the guild member doesn't have the maturity to see "I'm the problem, let me step out until I can better my self enough to take part in this raid", and they start going all ape-shit on the person asking them to sit out, then they NEED to be kicked.

Sorry, but with the amount of people I see saying 'inscriptionist' I have to step in.
The word is *SCRIBE*.

Aug 8th 2011 9:47AM To the people who don't see a problem with this : It's more of an issue of the loot and profit than it is with the actual raid.
The first groups of trash, as stated, can't be cleared by that smaller group alone, so they need the guild raid they take part in earlier in the week to clear it. Going inside, farming, and not giving back to the same guild that helped make that possible, while using their food, their flasks and their repair gold is just wrong. If they got the drops they did while in the full raid group, they would be distributed to everyone by rolls or if no one could use them, they would be sold off to fund the guild's free flasks, repairs, ect. Them going in on something that took the guild to make possible, while using benefits of the guild, with out giving back is just plain wrong. If they were giving a portion of their profits back, it would be one thing. But they're not.
Jul 23rd 2011 10:17PM People, pull your heads from your asses and learn what parody and satire are.
If you've read WoWinsider, you know that there's a running joke between the Mage and the Warlock columnists. You'd also know that when Arcane Brilliance can't be done by it's usual author, that the Warlock columnist takes over. It's happened in the past, and has always been a way to joke at the mage's expense.
All of you whining and bitching about the article need to relax a bit. "I don't see the comedy" this, and "Worst Arcane Brilliance ever" that, such stupidity.
I for one got a laugh out of it, and thought that it was great that we got SOMETHING to fill the hole left by an author being unable to post.
