How is it that I can be in a guild of over 500 people in a game of over 8 million subscribers yet sit in the LFG tool for an hour trying to find a damn group for an instance? I do a quick ‘who’ to find several hundred people online, so what is the problem? It’s peak time and I’m STILL looking for someone? We finally line something up and ‘oh, I have to go now’ tends to happen. Is this the ‘which came first the egg or the chicken’ argument? Do people not want to join your group because they don’t want to wait for an hour to find a group which in and of itself CAUSES the actual problem?
Same with raiding. Our guild has a weekly meeting on Sunday which the guild leader gives out free greens and blues (which takes much too long IMHO) and then we raid some Ally city. So why is it that we barely clear a dozen people, half of which leave as soon as they die the FIRST TIME!!! What are you doing in this game? Why are you joining a guild? Have guilds really been demoted to a place you join so you can get instance runs by high levels instead of social breeding grounds?
Is it poor game design? Is it too many loners? Poorly ran guilds? Do people really not want the connection of playing with other people? Whatever it is, it’s annoying as all hell. If you don’t want to participate in groups and guild raids, then why are you here?
