I was originally planning on writing on a completely different topic until @kpolk817 gave me a better idea for an article. What can a player do to secure their spot in their guild for Mythic raiding?

Telling your guild’s leaders that you want in for 100% of fights or that you want in over Jimmy, Timmy, and Sally all of the time because you personally think they’re bad players. Assuming a guild’s leadership is competent (not all leaderships are) they will easily be able to tell if Player D is better than Players A, B, and C. Being overly vocal about being in over them 1) can make you come off as a pompous douche who isn’t a team player and 2) will make you enemies among the officers since they might see you as inferring that they can’t even properly slot a raid. If you legitimately are concerned about having a raid spot, bring it up with your officers and even the people in your raid of similar roles in a mature manner. Often times, things can be worked out. Maybe someone wants to be for fights A, B, and F, while another person prefers fights C, D, and E.
