Weekend Roundup

Ok, so this past weekend fell a wee bit short of what I would consider a success. Right now we are having two fairly serious problems. If we don’t fix them, I don’t see us being able to continue playing as a raid guild.


I’m not sure what is going on with people signing up then not showing up (or showing up late). It is insanely disrespectful to the people who are looking forward to these raids. Is it because people don’t really care about the game and just randomly decide to do real life stuff? Are people signing up, then forgetting? Are people just signing up because they think if they don’t they won’t be able to loot? Please, someone shed some light on this here. It seems pretty simple to me that if you say you are going to be somewhere at a certain time, you do it.

Lack of Enthusiasm-Drive-Focus-Whatever

A few weeks ago we split from raiding with the FO9 folks. Aside from having some shortages in certain classes, they have been able to largely pick up where they left off and are making good progress on Rag. We, on the hand, seem more content to just chat on vent about loot or whatever. I’d don’t have a problem with goofing around, but we don’t need to organize 40 people to goof around. If we want to goof around we should start scheduling Deadmines raids.

“You landlubbers are thougher than I thought, I’ll have to im-pro-vise.”

Seriously though, when we are on a raid people need to be paying attention. That’s what is killing our raids and making us wipe over and over again. I’d like to point out a postive example of what I’m trying to get at here. Two weeks ago we were in MC and we tore through the trash mobs and bosses alike. We were having like zero deaths and we were hauling ass. I hope you guys will agree with me that an experience like that is more enjoyable than this pass weekend’s experience. Most of the same people were at both raids. The only difference was the attitude of the players. So what’s going on?

I’m looking for feedback on the situation. Please post some comments.
