The guild broke up... amicably?

Tipster Ryan Carter tells us that his former guild, and the Action News Team, is doing the unthinkable and breaking up without calling each other names, trying to steal each other's loot before quitting the game forever, or the other delightful consequences of guilds being dismantled. A post on the main page of their website containing a screenshot of the GM's decision seems also remarkably free of the bile, rancour or disdain I've come to expect from guild breakups. Our tipster tells us that some folks want to move on to raiding while others have joined a new guild he and his wife have started, and the GM post does seem to corroborate that it's just a case of folks wanting different things out of the guild.

Part of me wonders if this can possibly be on the level: surely there's some weird drama going on with all guilds, yes? My first guild, way back in my old alliance days (this is when Maraudon and Dire Maul were new, let me put it that way) exploded in an orgy of recrimination when our first player to 60 wanted to go raid and left to do so. I later followed that player to a raid guild before a combination of real life and burn out led me to leave for the Horde, and my current guild raids but casually... so I've seen a few different guild management styles by now, and usually there seems to be more of a 'seething-cauldron-of-petty-emotion' burbling under the surface when a guild busts up. But in this case, I hope it is true and they're all riding off into their own individual sunsets. Vaya con dios, and the Action News Team, vaya con dios.

How about you, gentle readers? Have you any tales of painless guild disbands to share?
