How to manage member rotation w/ raids...and then some,
Alright so here are several of my problems/issues/concerns. Myself as well as a large group of real life friends have gotten to the stage where were wore out. We're tired of the big shot guilds, and we're better than the small ones that don't move very far content wise. So we've formed <Arrogant>
We currently have 51 Level 80's in guild and on average have between 10-25 online which is a great thing to see. Raids are always put up on calendar along with times, etc. Our guild message is updated usually as content is downed for the week or there are important things that need to be noted to guild.
We've pretty well filled out diversity in class roll tank/heal/dps.
And I think we're taking the proper action with the guild and things seem to be running full speed ahead.
However, what do you do when it comes down to rotating players into raids.
Lets face it you don't want someone that isn't pulling there pull potential in a raid that really calls for your best. Also, I realize that may be interpreted that I am calling players bad. I am not. With any roll it is a sensitive subject to approach when you know that someone could improve or has the gear but a rotation is off, or maybe there is an add-on to help them out with somethings, etc, etc.
For example: We have this one Holy Paladin that has a great looking gear score for what he's in and has a mana pull of 22k self buffed, not too shabby for ToTc/Uld content that we are in. However on XT Hard Mode he was pulling 900 healing. Now we've seen him heal much better, but that wasn't cutting it. Maybe it was an off night, I'm not sure and I haven't asked so that is something I will look into, none the less..,
We had dps whispers about him not healing enough, etc. Now, I myself don't have any healer class, so I am not going to speak up and tell them how to heal. I do care though, as one of the founding members and an officer, I really want to help him improve!
I am NOT going to say: " You're not healing good enough and you're bad we can't take you in raids "
I feel as if I've gone off subject? But, if you here on the forums could toss some info my way, some personal experiences similar to my situation please enlighten me =]
We want what's best for the guild as whole, but we do care about our members are individuals too, we are not here to bully anyone, but to be a great guild as we have already shown to be.
And yes like I had stated before, is there an easy simple way to manage rotating players into raids, is it as simple as taking a spiral notebook and keeping tabs?
So yes, any info concerning what I typed as well as anything helpful on the subject would be very appreciated. Thank you.
