Guilds

    Alright, so today I logged in, and at level 40, i still don't have a guild. Sure, i have been offered a spot in guilds, but i just don't see the point. When i sit down to play, a party of my close friends in real life is the closest to cooperative play i get (not a big BG player) So when i saw a few other articles all worshipping the guild system, i decided to get my words in. I don't like guilds. They are just a group of people who have a private chat channel for themselves. I have only been in a few guilds on past characters. My 37 tauren druid (shandani on lightninghoof) is in the best guild i have ever been in, Warcloud. I have a level 9 character (twink in the making) also in warcloud. But my level 40 character (Xaveron on Anub'Arak) has never been in a guild because there are way more bad guilds than good ones. Take Lost Ones on Lightninghoof for example. They are a good guild, but one guy, Ashu, was given power to promote, demote, and kick players in the guild. One day i log in, and i am not in the guild. I open up a whisper with him and say "Hey, i am not in the guild, did I annoy someone?" and all i get is "no, i just didn't like you". You can find a bad egg anywhere, but in a videogame? With guilds, The only reason i have ever been in a guild is to mooch stuff. When i get a higher level though, i am expected to give back. My play style may be different, but i like to level as much and as fast as possible and grind for cash for gear i need. I see something in the auction house for 10 gold, i don't carry that much on me. I go and grind a few minutes (10-25) and bang, I have it. Guilds are a waste of time. High levels show off their stuff, low levels ask for help and gear, and if you don't give in, you are christened a knob or a moron and are exiled from everyone who is in the guild. They cause more problems then they solve.

P.S. Leave more comments, i need input to improve my posts!

If ever there was a game where there were no guilds, we'd still group, converse, have economies, and have just as much fun.

Guilds say they are the cause of all the above, but the only thing they really do that players can't do themselves is play efficiently.  Now to me, when players start to value "efficient play," over "spontaneous play," it's no longer play, but mere drudgery.

I have the hardest time finding a guild to join. I always get either near max level or completely to max level guildless, simply because I can't make game-friends. I'm not disrespectful to anyone, love grouping for better gear and such, but because I can only log in 1-2 hours at a time I am an inconvenience to the majority of players that play 3-6 hours a day.

I end up trying to make my own, which always fails horribly because I have no friends to invite to said guild. I wonder if I'm of the minority in the MMORPG genre if there are others in my same situation because everyone else around me seems to already be in a guild or playing with a group of real-life friends.
