When you say "right this ship" what I interpret that as is fix this server. I know people say that talking to other raiders on this server that are 1 or 2 out of 7 mythic is going to be a hard push, but I don't fully buy it. What people have to realize is that the better players, for the sake of real progression, need to be on the same team. If we are not united then progression gets stagnant. When stagnation sets in the server starts to fall behind compared to other servers. This leads to players, both good and bad, leaving to be on more populated and better progressed realms. This costs real life money for people, it makes those that stay suffer for not paying cash to move, and it means people who might otherwise be fun to have in the greater community may decide they would just as soon not play anymore.
I know that officer power and relinquishing that is a potential hurdle, but if power in a guild is more important to somebody over being apart of the best possible raiding team this server can assemble then I personally wouldn't want to raid with that person. The officers in this guild have, in my opinion, created an environment where it feels everybody has a real voice in what we do. To me that is all I really ask that I have. So long as I have the ability to have some input I don't need to be in a position of power. Hopefully the intelligent raiders understand that (both from other raid teams as well as within our guild) and if it comes to it be willing to step away from that guild power trip in order to be apart of a better overall community.
