Wife Aggro on guild drama
Poor Pvthudson, not only does he have Wife Aggro, he now also has a guild drama. Copra linked to it in comments of the last post, but Blogger doesn't turn URLs in comments into clickable links automatically, you need to proceed them with the full <a href="http://www" etc. HTML code. So as this guild drama is such a typical one, I took the link and made a post out of it. Danger being that Pvthudson doesn't really like people linking to that post, as the fact that he wrote about it on his blog already got him kicked out of his guild.
The lesson from his long guild drama post is that if your guild has a Karazhan A team and a B team, you're guild is already near certain to experience guild drama in the not-so-far future. Having the TBC raid circuit start with a mandatory 10-man raid with one-week lockout has turned out to be the greatest guild killer in the history of WoW. In many guilds it lead to an elite of 10 players advancing fast through Karazhan, because they always play together and have the optimal raid composition, and the remainder of the guild advancing far slower because the composition is less optimal and varies from week to week. That creates a gap between the A team and the rest, and can easily end with a permanent split, when the A team suddenly notices that you can't kill Gruul with just 10 players, but is unwilling to split up and help the other players to get through Karazhan often enough to be ready for the next step.
