Right, but if you have someone who works their ass off for 3 months out of the year, during their school off-time, builds up their DKP for a certain item and then is screwed out of it because a guy who joined two months ago has been able to attend more raids in the last two months than you have… even though you have MORE DKP than he has…
That’s lame. Sorry, I’ve ran a raiding guild myself, quite successfully for quite some time in fact.
I’m amazed that guilds like this are even able to keep members. If this had been my guild, the kid would have gotten the item hands down. Anyone laughing at the kid for being upset about something that happened in the game would have gotten a brand new shiny white tabard.
DKP = Time spent helping the guild.
If you have more of it, you should get first dibs on loot. Period.
The kid had obviously spent more time helping his guild than the guy with less DKP. He put in the effort. He got screwed. End of story.
On the other hand, once you’ve spent the DKP you have to work it back up. This is what makes people continue to want to work as a team and contribute to the guild, i.e. come back to raid again.
I’m a 26 year old father myself. People taking advantage of kids hits some sore spots.]]>
