So, I have to recant pretty much all of my last post. It was hastily made conclusion based upon a bug, which has since been fixed.
Also when I made it home that day, I managed to find that our Guild XP was back on track. Hooray!
But over the weekend, it seems things got slowed down again. As noted by the Wowhead blog, Guild XP seemed to get stealth nerfed. No longer was the guild getting a 1:1 ratio of experiece as we levelled through our respective zones. Was this an intentional tweak? Is it another bug?
If intended, well, it shafts small guilds. My guild, for example, was unable to reach the daily cap yesterday (even though we did make it to Level 3. Hooray!) While my opinion is rather biased on the matter, I don’t think it’s entirely fair.
Then again, where does one try to make balance? 10-person guilds? 5-person guilds? 2-person guilds? At the end of the day, some smaller guilds just aren’t going to level up as fast as bigger guilds.
With that said, there is the chance that it is a bug. Or that the XP gains will be tweaked again.
At least I hope it’s another bug. I don’t need to make an ass of myself (again)… 😉
