Low GP Raid Suggestion

We have a development guild for our main and I have noticed even with daily participation, the 20 or so members can only contribute so much, and raiding is pretty much impossible on a weekly or even monthly basis. Would it be possible to reduce the number of tickets needed for NON-HEROIC tiers so they can enjoy raids and build rosters quicker? New players are not going to mortgage the house to play this game. If they advance quicker and build better rosters they will be more likely to invest more time and even money when they see a light at the end of the grind tunnel. Joining a larger guild is not going to happen since they want higher GP, better rosters, etc. If the game ignores new players the game is not going to grow much past it's current level.

    The number of tickets needed and the limits put on generation are there in part to promote a healthy or full guild. While this can be a difficult situation for a developing guild, I don't see them changing that.

    There are many alliances out there that keep full lower gp guild to help people develop.

    Is that the official word on this? Seriously asking.

    There was an official comment about tw along the lines of why would be change anything for a half full guild.

    A full guild is a healthy guild and a half guild is a broken guild was the impression I got.

    I’m not sure I understand why new players can’t play in full guilds with other new players. If there are a bunch of half-full guilds of new players out there that can’t get enough raid tickets, can’t they merge and make full guilds?

    Higher GP guilds are being forced to only take members with similar rosters. New low GP members are pushed into robo guilds, and lost in the void. Our dev guild has players working at the speed they are comfortable with. Which due to the current system means little or no raiding. And with so much of the gear behind raid walls they will never get much better. The game thinks this will cause them to pay money or quit, which the game seems to be fine with either way.

    I doubt this will change as stated above. You probably will have to do some active recruitment for your dev guild to get the tickets boosted if you really want it fixed.
    The CGDF is no more. Now we hate CG because of conquest. Say hi in our Discord! https://discord.gg/AmStGTH

    So the issue is with the starter guilds, because you can’t find enough new players that are interested in being in a non-starter guild to fill yours?

    Well I didn't think about that, but yes.

    Or be happy with what you achieve in your incomplete guild.
