I was once an officer in an RP guild that decided to start "casual" raiding. Casual raiding raiding became hardcore raiding and the guild was constantly split between the raiders and the RPers. It was led by a husband and wife team who were also seen as divided: one as pro: raid and the other as pro: RP.
The raiding group would eventually figure out they didn't need anyone else and split off from the main guild. This happened at least three or four times. Of course, the accommodations made to please the raiders made the RPers unhappy. Eventually most of the RPers left. The guild was in a constant state of flux and drama. Officers would leave or ask to be demoted. The guild still exists, but it is a shell of its former self. Very sad.
