Walk the Plank is now officially on hold until Cataclysm. I don’t want to make a long post about this but I figured I might at least talk about it.
I would like to say that this decision came about after a long and complicated process but in reality the whole issue was rather simple. Like the rest of WoW, we were facing the dreaded end of expansion blues and while I tried battling it for a while it became obvious that a lot of our issues, namely recruiting and keeping people interested in logging in between raids, was due to that particular monster.
Events conspired to force the issue on us yesterday with Kaozz husband considering going back to EQ but it was a decision I felt was coming anyway so it wasn’t a big surprise. What would I do? Would I try to force us to keep at and soldier on despite the odds and boredom or would I sink the guild and we would all go our seperate ways.
My gut feeling was telling me not to force the issue and for once I’ll trust it. Numerous times before I’ve ignored it when it came to raiding or guild issues and I’ve always regreted it. Still, I could see that the issue was with the current game and not with one another so I proposed a middle path.
Keep the guild alive for friends, alts and family until Cataclysm hit and then we would reconsider our options. Until then we’ll keep doing stuff on Sundays, wether raids or anything else silly we feel like but I won’t force progression with pugs on people who are already bored with the game. Raiding alone won’t keep us alive that long.
So until Cataclysm, we’ll take it easy, no feelings hurt.
