    Recruiting for raid comp insead of using existing guidl members

    Recently left a guild where raid spots were not based on performance, but at the same time veteran guild raiders were sat for either pugs or fresh recruits who fit the Raid Leader's "ideal" composition of classes for whichever fight currently focused for progression. However, rather than be clear when posting recruitment goals specifically, not only was the guild listed as "Open" recruitment, as well as advertising 25 man guild raids that in reality were an unreliable chance at a 25 man Baradin Hold that met the 20/25 minimum for guild raid status, and went so far as to recruit unwanted/unneeded classes to "Flesh out our third 10s raid team" (translation: alt run/ 60% guild run with trade spam pugs to fill.) Some guild officers became hostile and vindictive when I left with my raid geared and progression worthy raider to go to a guild where I had a stable raid spot.

    What happened to:
    a) "Bring the player, not the class?"

    b) Any sort of loyalty to guild members or seniority/time invested in guild




    P.S. in the case of duplication of clases, one of the two players (often the better of the two) gets sat or in one case, "encouraged" to reroll in order to have a raid spot (recently the better rogue rerolled a freshly leveled/geared resto/balance druid)

    P.P.S. While at the same time having geared veteran raiders benched, their recent guild first 10 man Nefarian had in the raid a recruit that was in guild less than a day before the run.

    IMO, this is something better taken up with your ex-guild leaders

    besides, you have already left - not much point in airing it out in public - if you had been asking as to what you should do, then maybe there would be something to say.

    also, these things usually have another side to the story - coming here and putting your story up might earn you some sympathy but in the end, there's nothing much to gain

    .. if the class is capable of X

    At least for 10m heroic raids you can't bring always the same 10 people unless they have way to much time to equip an army of alts..

    Good riddance. Be happy you're out of a situation that is toxic to you and understand that some people just are... well.. they've got their way.
