So earlier today (Saturday) I was watching this streamer, MightyTeapot, who was hosting some raid tournament. I was told in chat that it featured the best guilds in the game and they were competing in the different raids. I don't follow elitists, why go to snowcrows when you can go to metabattle and get more builds for more game modes, but I saw that the "best" guilds weren't even completing the raids.
If the top tier guilds cannot complete the raids, how does arenanet expect my guild to complete the raids. We don't have any fancy ascended gear or people who can play classes like chronomancer; we don't have two hours a day to do a full wing; nor do people always want to do the raids. I tried pugging vale guardian, but was kicked from the group because they didn't want me tanking, for whatever reason.
The main point: if top tier guilds can't finish the raids, how does arena net expect my guild to beat them? We obviously cannot, so we must make easy mode raids.
Thank you for your time!
