Despite the fact that we still had 13 people online in raid last night, we continue to lose members for various reasons. We effectively lost 4 660+ DPS in one night but this doesn't mean that we can't continue. In trying to figure out why so we can do something about it, i'll give the reasons given below:
1. backstabbath: different views on progression (not to sure what)
2. Blmorph: wants to rejoin a friends guild suddenly after being back 1 week
3. Zeddik: work schedule preventing attendance
4. neurotak: something about 3am raids.
5. Hysin: no reason given, but was complaining about having to run normal
So there you have it. I'll leave you all to make your own minds up on all of that. From the official reasons given there does not even appear to be a problem, but clearly there must be. This makes it impossible to find a way of preventing this from happening again.
Again as I said on mumble last night, lets not get involved in background gossip or make assumptions or petty bitching over nothing. We need everyone to stay with us in order to rebuild so if you have a REAL concern, bring it up directly instead of bouncing your thoughts around in your groups.
If anyone has a problem, be direct, be strong and brave about it and be upfront and say what you mean. Give a real reason for leaving and stop being so bloody soft about this !! We will continue to bleed players unless the indirect gossip/ bitching does not stop behind other peoples backs. I believe that this gossip and some public QQ about our situation is the real reason why a few people have pulled out, but they just wont own up to that. It really is days of our lives stuff if this is true.
The good news is that Picklecat is staying and ALSO has up to 3 excellent raiders willing to join us from tomorrow which brings us one step closer to mythic. I was also encouraged that the raid was relatively smooth last night considering who we lost.
