Raid guild disbands

I'm curious about why the top raiding guilds are disbanding now instead of before Sunwell was released.

Maybe they had been holding out to see what would happen?

Just sticking a post here to look at later.

Complacency kills.

From what I've seen and experienced, raid guilds lost a lot of people who got bored farming Black Temple and Hyjal. And although Sunwell's been called a T6.5 instance (which it is in terms of loot), it's more like tier 7 when it comes to difficulty. It starts at a difficulty way beyond anything in BT or Hyjal, and rapidly ramps up from there.

If you attempt that with people who still need a few drops from BT/Hyjal and expect the cakewalk that was everything after Kael'thas, you're in for a rude awakening. Combine that with a very limited recruiting pool on most servers, and you end up choosing one of the following:
a) Smash your head against the wall until WotLK
b) Farm Black Temple and Hyjal until WotLK and hope you'll equip and train people faster than you lose them
c) Quit.
