Recruiting is going great!!! Recruiting sucks We’ve gained tons new players just today. We lost another player. We’re up, we’re down. We only need 2 more healers to do 25-mans.. no, wait.. we need 4 *sigh* I’m emotionally drained from all the highs and lows.
I’ve been in West Kingdom for a year and a half. In that time we had exactly ZERO people quit the guild. Since we started recruiting we’ve lost 3 of the new recruits. We’ve only been recruiting for 2-3 weeks.
Sometimes it’s them. Sometimes it’s us. Sometimes it’s a long simmering desire they’ve had to give up Wow.. that didn’t actually express itself until after they’d joined our guild. Sometimes it’s the fact that they’ve been in the guild a WHOLE WEEK and we still haven’t run a 25-man(poor them). I’m feeling drained. I’m taking a vacation. Those two things aren’t exactly related.. I’ve planned to take this vacation since about January of this year.. the two things just happen to coincide.
Last night I happened to end up chatting with two of the new recruits (we were the only ones still on vent) and one recruit confided that his “account is up” and he was thinking of just letting it lapse until Wrath.. you know.. since this guild is never going to see the inside of SSC anyway. I’d been kicked in the balls earlier that night (two new recruits(brothers) quit because our “rules were too strict”. US? With strict rules? Have they met us?). So I didn’t exactly react the best way. …
I’m worried that my vacation will add another nail to the coffin.. and we’ll have even more recruits flee. *sigh* I’ve decided to not care. I’m frustrated that I’m the only person posting on our forums.. or the realm forums.. and I’m tired of being a one woman show. I’m going on vacation. When I get back I’ll worry about what we have, what we need.. and how to get from A to B.
I’m planning to get into SSC before Wrath. Even if it means pulling people in from other guilds and getting the damn primals and what-not for Hydros armor all by my freaking self, we will see the inside of SSC.
In other news.. Blizzard announced that Wrath will come out “Between October and December”. I’m still betting it’ll be the week of Nov 15. Yeah.. I don’t expect that news to liven up the recruiting scene any either. *sigh*
