We seem to be either 8 or 9 manning content at the moment, and I am not entirely thrilled about it. Don’t get me wrong the fact that we can 9 man content with a DPS slot empty is somewhat nice to know, but it just puts a strain on the team.
Tonight we did Zonozz and Hagara then had two really good attempts at Ultraxion. Ultraxion was sooooo close. I mean 20 seconds left and under 20% health – I blame being fire for that. I had crap RNG tonight – all night. It felt like I had barely any pyre’s.
We have been trying to recruit and with absolutely no success. It is like people either don’t want to raid or it has to be hardcore raiding. We are not a hardcore guild, we don’t care if we never see hard modes, but we do like raiding and doing normal mode. In all honesty we were so close to killing warmaster before the Nerfbat (we were getting him to under 5%), so had we not been suffering since then with attendance, we would be certainly onto killing DW – Madness I think.
It is so frustrating to be in the position where we can’t find 3 other people who do not want hard modes – is that all there is now? Is the game really that easy/ Do we suck that much? I have no idea, and to be honest I don’t really know because it isn’t like we can see who else is struggling for numbers. Perhaps an alliance can be sought – for raiding – to merge teams to actually have the numbers….
I guess what annoys me as well, is I am making the effort of trying to put posts up and recruit people, but I am not the GL of the guild and I am not even an officer – nor do I want to be. I shouldn’t be the one focusing on getting the people into the guild – it should be the GL and his officers – but you know…they say they don’t have time – yet they spend a far chunk in heroics and in LFR on various toons instead of joining server pugs and trying to talk to other guilds about their situation. Perhaps I am being unrealistic – but….it is annoying me today.
The problem is, the guild is really good – the people….if you are playing for friends and community – our guild is awesome. The people in the current raid team, bar 2 have been together since kara – when I recruited them. We are friends and we know about each other’s lives. We play SWTOR with some of them as well. They are a great bunch of people who would help out anyone if needed. We all have alts with Max professions we share that around for no costs – we give what we can to each other to help out and we do our darndest to ensure everyone is having a good time. We cannot be the only 8 people in the game that are like this? Surely there are more somewhere?
I think my flu combined with the fever I have is making me delirious and angry. LOL
