Guildleader chores - The wind down

So I decided that we would only raid once a week because getting people together for raid was just felt like I was dragging people to raids. So we had raids run over 2 weeks - extending the second week.

This week we only had G'Huun left. So without Splatz around, I didn't really feel like bashing my head against it - maybe next week I'll feel like it. I didn't schedule a raid for this week - I told people last week in raid that we were having the week off. But, people's memories are short, and I didn't realise how many people turned up to raid!

I had a moment of trepidation when I saw how many people I was letting down. Once people see that there is no raid on, then they would be less likely to turn up the following week. Was it a mistake not to raid this week?

Anyway, what's done is done. I decided not to raid this week, and next week we may have hardly anyone turn up to raid. If that's the case, so be it - I have a ton of dungeon achievements to get through.

It did set me thinking though. I looked at who was online.

Gen and Ram were very opposed to gearing people's alts in raids, so they stopped turning up. Trains had been AWOL for a while now, and may turn up later for next patch. Even I have been busy playing Two Point Hospital that I haven't been doing as much as I should online...

Krygore got a promote since he is always online and always reliable. Fin and Crooked are still on to, and HK on his alt. Mag is around, so is Faith, and Mesa. Morkra is on too, but you have to catch him before he does a Deez and goes to play... Battlefield, or something. Deez has had a work change so he won't be online much anymore because of hours. Sev gets on for PvP, and Moo is still on playing alts.

Due to HK's nagging, I started an alt on Alliance side, just to see the storyline. It's a female dwarf Paladin. It's slow going, but I should keep going on it whilst we have the 14th anniversary buff!


  1. the down time is hard once ppl have cleared, geared & done the raid achievement. at least we have new content in 2 weeks but new raid in January. this time of year is always a bit stupid. enjoy the break & ppl will return after xmas.
    anyway plenty of achieves to knock out.
    you guys hit it pretty hard at the start, enjoy the chill time now.
