We have just about 2 weeks left until we move the guild and are fully on Zul’jin. Vankora and Clapton have both been relocated. All of our personal bank vaults have been moved and reorganized. Leaving us with our full 3-4 vault set up on both servers. Got to bring in that gold. We have expensive taste.
Only 2 weeks to go… It seems so close but still so, so far away. In the beginning we thought that people would really want a decent heads up to our move, so they could plan accordingly and whatnot. We thought that when we moved Myth, everyone that wanted to come would. But instead of a mass move we are getting a slow trickle. Which it’s not that we aren’t happy people want to move and couldn’t wait and I know we are moving toons early also. But the new is wearing off before the guild has even moved. The excitement of a new server is going to be dead for a lot before the rest of us have even got there. Instead of us all being together, instead of the moving really bring us closer and helping us get back to our roots with all our old members, it seems that this is just going to create another unexpected hurdle for us. We want to have the old feel of Myth back. We want our old members to feel safer, and more secure within the guild. We were really hoping that the move would do that for us. But with this slow trickle. With the people on ZJ already getting bored of the game again, we are losing people once more. We wanted to be able to bring new people in slowly like we did before. We wanted to keep the core of Myth strong. I mean no offense to any of our members or old members, but I don’t want “those” people in the guild. If we bring in new people slowly, they either fit in immediately, adapt, or leave quickly. Flooding with new people gives us “those” people, which lets face it, nobody wants to deal with. We had hoped we could just bring in people 1-2 at a time, give them time, they either worked or didn’t, and bring in some more. Slowly we would grow. But we would keep Myth the way it was. But we are now faced with the issue that if everyone is already leaving again wtf are we supposed to do. We either flood it and kill our hopes, or let it sit with our few guildies that are holding out until Legion and go ahead with our plan then. Oh the joys of being guild lead. All the problems nobody else has to think about, resting forever on your shoulders. Make the wrong decision and you will piss people off, make the right decision, well you lose then too.
Despite all my worries, which trust me I have many more, I am very glad we are moving. I do still feel that it’s the right decision for us, for our guildies, for Myth’s future. It’s just all the uncertainties of doing something like this. We took a big leap. We have a lot of people counting on us, that we not only made the right choice, but will continue to do so and that Myth will stay strong. We will try our best.
But god damn… It’s stressful.
