This pretty much summons the problems perfectly, so I'm quoting ftw.

With no new player circulation, there's no long-term pvp, so don't only blame the greenies for failing - try to teach them instead, give them tips, show them the ropes. It's pretty much your duty as a high rank, and if you don't do it and complain over low ranks, then you're a part of the problem, not solution. As for groups/raids failing, whether freeps or creeps, sometimes it's the leaders fault (faulty target calling, unorganised bubbles/rezzes), but don't let it come to you, just learn from mistakes and don't point fingers at others. Don't be afraid to fail.
