I'm in need of your advice and your experience.
Several days ago, the idea came up of serving moving our guild. Our server (Duskwood) has been losing people, even with the expansion, and it's hard to recruit new blood to fit in with our semi-casual/semi-raiding guild. It's line we manage to maintain only because every member of the guild is understands that Life > WoW. We love playing this game, we love raiding, and we supporting each other and help out the guild as a whole.
I'm reluctant to server move the whole of the guild, but I'm open to hearing the pro/con arguments from my guildmates. We're having an officer meeting to discuss this possibility, then open it up to a broader decision with the rest of the guild.
If this is something the majority of the guild is interested, then I'm open to doing that. I realize that some people will not want to move or can't afford to move, and we'll lose people. This might be offset with a better population.
I've read the FAQ from Blizz (https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/guild-services-faq
) so I can understand how to do this, and what would happen.
But, I want to hear about YOUR experiences on server moving your guild...or why you decided to remain in your current server:
* why you did it (move or stay)
* how you made your decision
* what happened when you did
* what you would do differently
* what server did you move to and why?
As mentioned above, I am hesitant to do this -- I don't want to lose good guild members, and I don't want to server transfer only to regret it later. I'm not sure if those interested in server transfering are having the grass-is-greener-on-the-other side syndrome. But, on the flip side, this could be good for us.
I appreciate your time and answers to my questions. I want to ensure that this is the right decision for us and that I understand all of the pitfalls / advantages of this from all angles.
