A new era

Once again, I find myself blogging this Saturday morning, keeping my promise to try to blog once a week on the weekends.

My guild is transitioning into a new era.  We have two new officers, a new strategy for raiding that is focusing on 10 mans.

My only concern is that since we started the transition, more people are coming out of the woodwork, originally, when we started we had just enough for 2 teams.  Now it looks like maybe 2 and 1/2 to 3 teams.  But the balance is wrong, cause it looks like we are lacking tanks and healers, so we will end up having to sit some people during the week.

Now one of the big transitions back to doing 10 mans is we could not get 25 people together to perform the raid content.  Even now, with the spreadsheet I have made, I see that we do not have a single night that we have 25 people on to do the raid.

Also many people just could not handle the 25 man raids, they would lag out, DC, etc.  Others just missed the fellowship that 10 mans provide.  We were falling apart as a guild as people focused more on gear than having fun and fellowship.  We were no longer Raiding for the Glory of God (our guild catch phrase), but raiding for self.  At least that is the way it felt.

So now we embark in a new era.  10 man teams, running at different times, having fun and fellowship.
