So Ive decided to post here in hopes of finding some good insight as to what should be done with my current situation.
My roomate and I created this guild 'The Exiled Brotherhood' about three months back as hopes to create an environment we were looking for, but couldnt find in a guild. We try to find our basis around a social aspect and leveling but as we gain our knowledge of the game, look to extend it passed that later on. We were doing really well, we were having members join and were active in our mic lobby on raidcall, everything seemed to be going great. We Got the guild to Lvl 25 relatively quickly and now have 6 bank tabs full of useful things. Then we had a key social member quit to start his own guild. He was important because his attitude always promoted more social activity to include game chat and raidcall. He just brought alot of energy to the guild. As GM, I knew it could lead to a setback, but didnt expect it to get to the point it is at today... We continued to push through and had good events and picked up a couple accounts who I felt were good potential members to enter into a more active role in the guild. As I said before my roomate and I created the guild so We are GM and Co GM, but we are in the Army, and sometimes our duty can get in the way of us being on so we had someone who we completely trusted at 3rd in command and he was holding the guild together in some key places (Bank organization, promoting activity, etc). As of recent, him and his wife decided to leave and create a guild for their little one, to give her a more family friendly environment. Today we basically are a non social bunch. during the week there are only a couple on and we tend to keep to ourselves, even if we try to spark a conversation, it doesnt last long. My Battle and I have contemplated selling the guild, or handing the responsibilites off. We, ourselves are still new to the game *only been playing for maybe 6 months*.
We've talked about joining a new guild so we can also have a better experience in the game. As of now the guild just seems to be full of failed potential and lost hopes. especially with members who'm we grew fond of has left.
I just want to enjoy the game when I get on like I did back whenever The EB started.. works stressful and the game provides a good relief, especially with a good guild to help relieve some stress.
