So.. you’re the raid leader.. it’s 15 minutes to raid time.. you have 15 people signed up for a 10 man raid how do you decide who to bench?
– Take the people who most need the gear upgrades. And reward the under-performers who haven’t bothered to gear themselves outside of the raid setting.
– Take the people who haven’t recently been able to go on raids. And reward people for sporatically showing up to raid.
– Take whoever signed up first. And reward whoever happened to be online when the raid was posted.
Seriously.. how do you do it? You have to bench someone.. how do you choose who to bench without getting a guild full of butthurt people?
My guild, West Kingdom, is facing this question now. The guild leadership has opened the question to the guild membership. I know what I think should happen.. but I’m interested in what -you- think Internets.
What does your guild do.. and does it work?
