Why do we even sign up for raids?

Posted by whatheals on May 14, 2008

I mean really if you are going to sign up why not be there. I understand real life crap happening, even unexpected real life stuff happening but when you are online, on the toon that you signed up for the raid, please please please let someone know you won’t be there before you log off for the night.

This has been a problem that has gotten worse recently in my guild. We will have 19 people sign up for Kara and 8 show or 26 for ssc and 20 show. It really makes getting the raids started a problem and hurts progression.

We are a casual guild and so there are no requirements for raiding “x” nights a week, which is fine. I need a break every now and then as well….I am at every raid and recently took a week off. BUT we are also an adult guild so I expect that people will have at least common courtesy for each other. If there aren’t enough people there for the raid the ones who are just sit there.

Where is the line in the sand where enough is enough and people are held accountable for not showing up repeatedly?

    Same problem with my Guild at the moment as well although we consider ourselves to be leaning towards the hardcore side of things.

    Probably not viable for your Guild but me and the fellow officers are simply coming up with a system now where anyone who does not inform of us of their status for the raid will lose dkp. If they still refuse to sign up we just put them at the bottom of the list for raid spots when they do appear.

    Our guild assumes you will be there. If not, then you put down an afk notice. Emergencies happen, but when someone just stops showing up, you give them the boot.
