So disappointed. I’d really been looking forward to it all day, I’d spent most of my available cash on a vastly overpriced staff in the AH to try to get some extra dps, I’d repaired and bought pots and I was waiting on time…and most of the people who should have been there didn’t bother to show up. Gutted.
I think we need to make an official post about the purpose of this guild. If it’s social, then fine – let us know now. If it’s going to be a raiding guild, then there are some responsibilities associated with that. I would assume that a lot of the new people either 1) haven’t raided at all as part of a large guild, or 2) were looking for a new guild because they were kicked out of a raiding guild. Either way, not great.
In order to raid successfully, you have to treat it like a job. Have fun, sure – but you have to be responsible as well. You can’t just decide not to log on on a Kara night. You can’t go afk for extended periods of time unless, I don’t know, Martians land or your dog is on fire – and even then it’s questionable. You can’t show up unrepaired with no ammo or bandages.
On a happier note, this motivational poster linked from WoW Insider. Even though they misspelled “aggro”, it’s still classic:
