Schism

The last time I did a 'Guild' post as back in late November. No one has been happier than me that I haven't had much to say about my guild. But here I am again.

Last night, I knew I was going to be late for the raid. My wife's best friend lost her father and we were going to the wake to give our condolences to her. I left a message on my guild's message boards so they would know what's up.

When I get online, I find that my guild has basically split in two. After talking with some of the guys that left, it seems there had been a growing schism between members of the guild, and last night was something of a final straw. Unfortunately, the Guild Leader of my guild didn't log in until the argument had gone all the way through officer chat to open guild chat and right out in to Trade.

The net effect was about 90% of the people that I have enjoyed spending my time with online, including everyone I had been in Naxx10 with the night before, left Mal Katai last night to form their own guild. UGH!

Basically, they told me they'd be happy to have me, but they weren't going to exert any pressure on me to change guilds.

A newly formed guild has it's appeal and also it's dangers. It's going to be an interesting couple of days.
