Also need to make a decision on the #killarchimonde movement
Do we need another poll?
In my time with Twelve the guild has never been about excluding anyone.
This is what I've always thought and I don't understand why anyone would want otherwise. ES helped us get back on our feet, no doubt about it. Suggestions by Twelve members to improve the raid have never aimed to exclude ES members from their own raid. At some point members suggested to break off into our own raid, but only after I think they were frustrated there was no room to discuss changes to the raid. Personally, I would have liked to avoid the split.
Reasons like, "seeing too many new faces", or, "too many people makes my computer lag a little more", or "we need to think about future Mythic raids", are reasons that just don't cut it for excluding 10+ Twelve members in a Heroic raid, especially without prior discussion.
(at least in my opinion). Twelve have never veto'd who ES can bring to a raid, and that should have been mutually respected. I definitely did not feel comfortable being invited to raid, while other Twelve members were sitting there waiting for their normal invite.
After Wednesday's fairly successful raid, I don't know why things couldn't have just continued as they were. I can only assume not everyone thought Wednesday was their idea of "successful", in which case, it should have been up for ….you guessed it... discussion. Discussion always felt, from my point of view, very one-sided.
I am glad that Cailo and the officers have sided with the option that benefits Twelve members the most, and not an option that may have resulted in two separate raids (which no doubt would have just created even more drama and rift in the guild). I hope that everyone from Twelve that previously raided with us, will continue to raid with us. Our raids should be welcoming to all Twelve members.
Congrats on getting Iskar, Xhul and Fel Lord down. Hobs did a fantastic job leading the raid and tweaking our strategies on the fly. Hopefully we can recruit some tanks (a DK tank, anyone?
) and some healers so we can continue right where we left off.
