Tofe, I ahve to disagree with some of the points you make. There are members of the team who are not doing their bit in researching their class and improving themselves to help the raid. I know who they are but as it stands we can't afford to lose anybody so instead I have to drop subtle hints to try and persuade them to do so.
MoV is an easy raid, there are bosses which are more challenging than others, but once you have the correct set up it becomes easy (Elegon is a good example). It is the few people mentioned above holding us back. They are not improving gear or reading tactics properly and then assuming that once we kill a boss it will be easy every time and therefore cause wipes in the resets every week by making silly mistakes. We are overgeared for alot of the fights we do, it is the minority, letting the majority down.
The team has always accepted new people as long as they are commited. Gear and rotations can be fixed, it is the commitment of progression raiding 3 times a week that we need from players. Take Littlesky, he was undergeared and not gemming correctly, but I knew he was going to be a good raider, so we took him on. However, people like that are hard to find on the server.
Sometimes I do need to point people out in order for them to understand that they are doing something wrong. It doesn't mean autodestruct, and it is never meant in a negative way. It is more constructive, or at least, I hope that it is.
As Bel has said, Team Win have more sign ups because they only raid two nights a week. Most of the guild are family orientated or casual players and three nights a week is not for them. Team Awesome has a different approach to raiding. We want to progress and do heroics, whilst Team Win often do not.
