One more week

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on June 24, 2010 by Korby

I’m not happy, so I’m giving it one more week.

In our guild, like most others, we have ranks.  Leader, Officer, Raider, Member, Alt, Initiate.  Leaders and Officers are pretty much self-explanatory.  Raiders are distinguished by the fact that they have regular raid attendance every week with more regularity than the Members.  Pretty much the only thing these ranks are good for, is that the Raiders get first dibs on loot, followed by the Members, Alts, and finally Initiates who only get loot if it would otherwise rot.  At the moment, I am a Raider, but I’m feeling lower than an Initiate for the simple fact that I can’t fucking get home from work fast enough and I wind up the 26th man.

Yesterday that cost me a Cryptmaker.  It went instead to an Initiate.

Today that cost me a role in our first Sindragosa kill.  That went, apparently, to somebody outside the guild as far as I could tell from looking at the online guild roster.

In the last month, I have killed a total of 2 25-man bosses.  I have to go back to May 18th in my WoW Armory Feed before I find myself killing multiple ICC25 bosses in a guild raid.

I’m starting to ask why even bother trying to get home in time.  It’s not going to happen.  It is not worth it to me to look forward to a raid all week, only to log on, see 25 names in ICC, be told “you’re on the sub list,” miss dinner, and basically sit around for the next hour and a half only to watch loot and achievements fly past me in guild chat before the raid is inevitably called once it gets too late for the east coasters to stay on.

I can’t get home any faster, and they won’t schedule the raid any later.  My rank of Raider has become a lie, and I’m sick of it promising me nothing.

So I’m giving it one more week before I quit trying.
