How to deal with problem GM
Hey everyone, I hope you can help me out a little bit with the problem I'm having in my guild.
I'm not getting on well with the GM - in fact we don't get on at all.
The GM of my guild is a tough person to get on with, he doesn't seem to have fun playing the game - whenever I ask Guildies if they're excited for tonight's raid everyone usually replies positively, unlike the GM who's usual reply is along the lines of "This isn't fun, I just want the guild to finish this content before 4.3". Great. You might guess how positive and happy everyone is after that comment.
Another problem that me and some of the other Guildies are having is with his attitude. He isn't nice. Oh no.
A good example is during our FL raid (this was while I was still on "Trial"), after an item dropped, which I should have gotten according to my roll and EPGP priority, he basically told me to forget about getting any items when I'm on Trial. When I protested, saying that not only did I not received a single piece of loot in 2 weeks (been with the guild for 3 weeks, got necklace of Ryio 1st week as nobody else rolled, 100% attendance), he basically said if i don't STFU I'm getting the boot. I also try to give people heads up on what they did wrong in a fight, for example, waves on Raggy, after saying that someone didn't move out of the wave, I was told not to tell others what to do (by the GM), I was just trying to help out so that it doesn't happen again. I've been in a number of different online communities over the years, mainly Battlefield and CounterStrike, and I have never experienced that kind of immature and rude behavior from the clan leader.
I'm not the one having problems with the GM, oh no, just today I was talking to a Guildie who is considering leaving because of him. Don't get me wrong - I like my guild. I enjoy playing with them and I have fun. However the GM just ruins and undoes all of the positive aspects of it.
I'm not sure if I should stick around or leave, any help would be great!
