Insert vent session here.

Putting together a SiB raid is like one of those grid logic puzzles. Our two 10 mans have shrunk into one and a half, maybe, on a good day–which for summer is not surpising or even all that terrible.

Usually.

The…colorful personalities I have collected can cause issues, however.

  • Player A will not raid with Player B.
  • Player C would rather not raid with A.  B isn’t their favorite person either, but whatever.
  • Player B has no idea what the fuck.
  • Player D has a whole list of people they’d rather not raid with if given a chance but isn’t that strongly opinioned on the matter.  They’ll just bitch.  A lot.  In whispers.
  • Player E doesn’t want to raid with A if they can help it, either.
  • Player F would rather not raid with A…or G, H, or I.
  • Player G likes everyone that most of the others tend to not like. (I’m glad someone does.)
  • …etc.

…and that incompatible alphabet soup is why we did not have enough to raid last week.  Or rather, we technically would have had enough, if only everyone would Fucking Play Nice Together, but we can’t have nice things and it is what it is.  I love my guild as a whole, but individually?  Well…sometimes a GM just wants to choke a bitch.  But can’t, because she’s GM.  QQ.

And that is why I’ve been a cranky GM lately, because god damn it, children, I just want to fucking raid!  If I can’t have ALL of my favorite people at least SOME of my favorite people is better than NONE (I am totally player D, if you’re trying to guess). Mumble grumble.

    Honestly, people have no right to be that picky. If they can’t be adults about it, they shouldn’t get to raid. At all. Period.

    Now, if someone is so intolerable that NOBODY wants to raid with him/her because of actual bad behavior, then that person should be benched, and the team can move on.

    Barring objectively bad behavior by a person who rightly should not be allowed to raid, anyone refusing to raid due to personality conflicts should be benched. It’s stupid drama which has no place. Anywhere.

    It’s only bad when we need to put them together. If you’re rotating X, Y, Z, and W, and X doesn’t want to raid with Z, then ideally you can just put them on different rotations and at which point, making an issue out of what’s not an issue is the picky thing to do.

    Now, when you can’t; that’s a problem, yeah.

    Blast. I was guessing B :(

    Well, at least you’re still trying. This is my week of giving up after wasting a month of my life dying to Nef. Just need a break from the despair.

    I’ve been having the same problems lately, except that everyone in the Brewing Co gets along pretty well, but our schedules don’t. Someone always ends up having to work, or having a date, or having some terrible shit happen to them or their computer. And then the replacement doesn’t know what the fuck, and we’re stuck at 10/12 with enough gear to start heroics if our core group was there. >:(
