I grew less tolerant of mistakes, expected more from people, and was less inclined to meet the needs of the Raider over the Elite. Complaints that they weren’t seeing as frequent of loot upgrades as expected were met with little sympathy from me. My inner voice took command, repeating to them the tenets of the guild’s philosophy:
The “Raider” rank enjoys more flexibility than the “Elite”; that’s why they get 1st round bidding rights. That’s their perk. Your perk is that you get to come and go as you please. You don’t get to have the cake and eat it, too. If you want more loot, give me greater commitment, just as the Elite have. End of story.
