... when he's gotta move on.
This is one of the harder WoW-related posts I'll ever write, so hopefully it'll go over well, or as well as can be expected.
After a lot of discussion over the past few weeks, I (Norbert), Aia, and Baseball have decided to move to another guild. As much as we try to stave off the desire for higher-end runs and more guild involvement, we just can't anymore. We play very frequently, and we're still not to the level we should be, simply because uBRS is about the toughest instance we can expect to run. There seem to be quite a few people in GWJ who are interested more in PvP or leveling to 60 and then starting alts, which is not to say that any of these play styles is wrong or not in the spirit of the game: they're just not play styles that mesh with us wanting to run ZG and, if at all possible, MC and above. When the guild does get together, it ends up seeming more like a chore, and these times are so few and far between that it's been probably 3 weeks since I've grouped with anyone in the guild but Aia or Baseball.
We'll be moving to a guild that will hopefully give us some aspect of that, without requiring daily runs or DKP or any of the other large guild nonsense, and hopefully everything will work out to the best.
Baseball and Aia don't have any alts in the guild but I do (Evaline and Vernon, for the most part, though there are others), so if at all possible I'd love to keep them in GWJ Alliance so I can keep in touch with you guys, but our 60s will be making the move.
I guess there's nothing I can do to prevent people from being upset or taking this as a personal affront to them or the guild, but please don't take it that way. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in GWJ Alliance and hope to still see you guys on in PUGs and with alts. But different people just look for different things in the game, and no amount of trying on either end will change the fact that sometimes, there are better fits elsewhere.
I hope everyone understands, and I'll see you in Azeroth.
