[World of Warcraft] It didn’t take but a little over a week for the newly formed guild I joined to break up. Poor attendance and a hasty guild master ended it. I’m actually quite sad because I liked the group of people. It was fun raiding with them and learning the stuff, we just didn’t seem to be too terribly good at it. I personally don’t blame the attendance. We didn’t have a regular guild schedule making it hard for people who weren’t in the last raid or logged in daily to check the guild message to know about the next raid.
The guild master decided to make characters on another server on Alliance side and asked us to come with him. A few of us did, including me, mostly because I consider these people my friends now and it’s fun to play with them. Despite this, it’s nothing but an alt to me. I did manage to get into another raiding guild after being recommended from the disbanded guild. This guild is currently up to Hakkar in ZG and Domo in MC, so it’s a pretty new guild, which I’m excited about.
I have already raided with them a couple of times, once in ZG and once in MC. This guild certainly seems to have the experience and people to be good, but something about it just isn’t as fun. The guild master has real life friends in the guild and they constantly joke around with one another while raiding, which personally makes me feel distant. It feels as if these people aren’t trying to connect with anyone else, but more or less a guild of a few friends and a bunch of people who only come because they want phat loot. My brother feels the same way. On top of that, it feels like listening to penis jokes and childish giggles for 3-4 hours straight on vent. They have joked around so much that we have wiped on trash pulls several times thanks to lack of focus. The guild master seems to realize this crap has to stop, so hopefully it gets better. We have the members and the skill, we just have to become a much closer group than we are.
In all honesty, end-game WoW is not fun enough unless you have a bunch of friendly people. I’m playing the game for fun, not gear. If it comes down to whether or not I’m having fun, I would much rather be in my old guild who wipes many times in ZG than be in a guild where I’m clawing my brain out just so I may have the chance at an epic drop.
