I’ve been dreading posting this, because I fear it will rehash the disaster of a weekend my guild just experienced, but I’m gonna suck it up and post it anyways. So I recently found this guild, and I really thought it was going to work for us. The group was chatty and friendly, and it seemed like a good place to be. We started raiding with two groups and as far as I could tell, all was fine. However, before and after Naxx last weekend, the officers and GM apparently had a few meetings, and quietly decided to xfer off our server because of the queues we’d recently been experiencing.
Thats all fine and dandy… except only the officers knew… and only the officers (and one or two members, after the fact) went. Two officers stayed, and they said they’d been out of the loop too. So I logged in Friday Morning just in time to see guild lead passed off to one of the two officers who stayed. No goodbyes, no explination… just gone… along with a tab or two out of the guild vault and 5,000 gold that members donated to the guild bank.
So I hopped into vent with the new guild leader and quickly put together what was going on. We were in vent maybe ten minutes when that got shut down… so I offered up mine. I quickly began planning along with our new GM (who quickly promoted myself and hubby to co-gms) and started work on a new website as well… A few members decided to xfer too, and a few decided to leave guild but to stay on the server… but a good chunk have decided to hang out with us.
After many questions and upset guildies I’ve only known for a week, I decided to go to the forums, and call out the old leadership on this exodus, going so far as to say leaving that way was a chickenshit thing to do… and it exploded. I’ve been called crazy, I’ve been told I’m making a martyr of myself. Either way, I have to say I must have riled up a few feathers, because they’ve shut down that website, too. They’ve gone on to make the guild Absoultion… ironic huh?
Either way, guess I’m back into the leadership role. Obviously they haven’t hurt us too badly, as we threw up a ten man Naxx on the calendar just to see if we’d have enough…. and we do. I’ll work on our new website some more and recruit the few holes we have… (We have NO mages… how did that work out??) and we’ll move on… but it’s been a…. stressful weekend. I sure can pick me a guild, huh?
Either way… we’re recruiting… if you are interested, please visit our forums at http://www.damagecontrolguild.net/forums and drop an app… we’re in need of at least 1 of each class!
Guess I’ve got some time to work on my alts.
