I agree with Thundresa, but part of the issue on top of it is just how awful the leadership in all of these guilds are on top of it. The # of players who are having to whisper our raiders for advice, even players of guilds outside of Inertia, because they aren't being taught anything at all, and need someone to help carry them through everything, is only making this realm's situation worse. The egos are even worse, because so many more players are so stubborn and think that their way is the only way, that progression hits a standstill, or things that need to get done, don't get done every time, and it hurts our realm.
We actually tried Chrispwns in our 2nd run, something we almost never do in the way of adding someone to any of our current content runs not in our guild, even if its for one run, and it boggled my mind to his low level of knowledge of the game could be. A lot of that I attest to the lack of intelligence of being in a leadership position that was in Final Hour, thus the mockery the guild would take in often.
I totally understand that people want to mock TE, and its players because there's nobody else to mock, but we're only 5/13H, we're not that big a deal in the offrealm scence, since our US 10 man rank's dropping from top 90 a little bit due to our slowing down a tad, what our realm needs right now is fewer guilds with smarter players who are humble enough to understand that our current system in a lot of these places aren't working, than many guilds of people who don't know anything.
I'm more than happy to see if there's anything I can do to help champion the effort to make the quality of life of what's left here better, but as long as everyone is ego-driven and stubborn, even moreso than me, we're going to be !@#$ed soon as a realm. I hope you as the OP look at what the realm's situation is and if there's anything you think I can do to help, please don't hesitate to find me in game.
