Activity is down lately. People don't need "small content" anymore, and without another reason to play the game they are not active. This is expected and is not necessarily a bad thing. Every past clan game has seen eventual lulls in activity. Many of our core members have been bit by the raiding bug. Sentinel left to raid a while ago, as did Aes, Stephine, CK, Levi, Xodis, and more recently, Firemane. In addition, several current members have expressed a desire to raid including Fujin, Cal, and myself. With raiding in mind, several courses for the guild have been proposed: 1) Merge with a raid guild. We have received merger proposals from raid guilds before. The most recent one was Chimera Evolution. Unfortunately most of our members are casual such that the merger would effectively be a disband. 2) Recruit and become a raid guild. Unfortunately I do not have the inclination to be a raid guild leader... the responsibility is huge. And again we have the problem of the majority of our members being casual. 3) Raid with HGA (now BAH). Several of us have recognized that BAH doesn't have the ambition for serious raiding. With most of MC behind us, BAH raiders seem content to farm up through Domo and stop. BWL ain't happening when we keep calling it off due to lack of bodies (from lack of ambition). The underlying problem is that our guild is small and casual, and the leader lacks the inclination to lead a raid guild. These are things which cannot be easily changed unless we disband and reform through a merger or recruiting effort, something which would leave behind the majority. Given this reality of the situation, I envision the natural course as one where the raiders among us leave to join other guilds while MSC remains intact in its original form, inactive or not. Discuss.
