I know most of the people this towards will probably not read this are even see it. I feel that this raid team is getting out of hand. Friday is not as bad as Saturday but still it feels pretty bad.
So for the last two week I have had to cancel the Saturday raid do to not have the roles needed to fill a raid team. I have had to turn people away because the raid comp is all over the place. It has most to do with healers. Last Saturday I put in guild chat that the raid had to be canceled because there was not enough healers to have a raid. No one in Guild chat said anything even the people who were on and put tentative. At the start of raiding I asked for days and times that people could come to raid and Friday and Saturday by far were the best days for everyone sure some could make one night and not the other but we had people that had the same role that could so we would never be short.
I know people have things to do in real life I understand that 100%. I try and put raid invites out on Sunday at the latest Monday. People should have time to answer the invite and know they will be able to make it by Thursday. Most thing that are coming up you know able a couple of day ahead of time. The least you could do is answer the invite with a yes or no answer by Thursday.
I have thought about changing one of the nights but I only have one other night open. I have thought about making it one night week, but I really do not want to do that because then to me it would be a waste with no progression. We have a new raid coming out in the next couple of weeks I would really like to get it done in a guild group and not have to go outside the guild to get it done. I would also like to be working on heroics right now but the raid teams comp is all over the place from week to week even raid to raid.
That is how I feel about how the raiding is going. I do not know how to make it better. So I am just putting this out there.
I can understand it. With the new raid there will be a rejuvenation of people wanting to raid. However with the place and grind people are electing to do that instead of raid like they use too. That was the response I got when asking around. I am not sure on how to offer a suggestion here. The lack of healers is the problem just not sure on how to solve it. When is new raid out?
Over the next few week in April and May, I can make it for Fri/Sat, or at least one of those nights.
I will show up to heal if you need me. I will check invites on the calendar.
Unfortunately I can't commit to all Fri/Sat due to family stuff.
Lars, start healing dammit. ;)
Also, I agree, that maybe we need to pick up some more folks for raiding.... even if it's only for awhile to complete this xpac... some may stay and some may go after; it's always the way.
