How about this then, my guild isn't looking to progress quickly. The premise of joining my guild is an understanding that people have lives, responsibilities, job, kis etc etc. It'll be very difficult for all members to earn DKP consistently due to other commitments. As such, I believe that for us a Loot Council would be a better solution. But our LC won't be looking at min/maxing for faster progression, we'll be looking at doing our best to make people smile. My guild members joined after reading a very transparent description of the expectations of being a member. AFK's, alt f4's and slacking, having babies sat on your lap crying into the mic at 2am. DKP won't work in my guild, imo, it'll be too situational for many to ever expect to win drops. Its a really tough choice to make. But I believe with the maturity of the community now there won't be any cry babies /gquitting when they don't get what they want. I'd rather run a raid 40 times and every time make someone happy, than run it 20 times to make 10 people happy so we can clear it a little bit faster. I don't know, maybe it's just me. I also don't want to spend half my evening tracking DKP, it's not fun, I've got shit to do too. I'll be relying on "grown ups" making "grown up" decisions and maybe making a sacrifice here or there, for the moral of the guild. Hopefully Dave the Tank may feel a bit empathetic to John the tank as he's had a tough time with his kids the last couple of weeks. So when that new shield drops Dave may just say, "Hey John, you take it bro". That's the guild I want to run. A loot Council by the people for the people.
Together we thrive, divided we survive.
In the darkest night, we are the light.
