Guilding

This time I'm going to discuss the pro's and con's of Guilding. Now, most of my experience is mainly in WoW, but I'm sure if you'[ve guilded in one game, it's pretty much the same. Guilding can be fun and enjoyable if you know some of the people and they seem to be pretty cool about how they play and treat your guildies. Other times you end up in a guild that has a few morons in it that screw it up for everyone.

 

Recently I had left a guild because I felt it was only hindering my progress towards end game content rather than helping it. That and I'm almost 30, I'm passed the drama crap and I just don't care anymore. I'd rather spend my time worrying about bills or future goals outside of a game. Things that pertain to a real life ( I hear the graphics are nice but the content sucks).

 

PRO's

 

Being in a guild offers you the ability to have help when you need it for questing, instancing, daily grinding, etc.

 

You're able to get into instances and raids fairly well and learn the new boss encounters

 

Having guild banks, vaults, housing, w/e it's called in w/e game allows you to trade and share items with everyone in your guild.

 

Having a like minded community means you can all be on the same page and understand what needs to be done to better both the guild as a whole and the individuals it counts on

 

For PvP you always have someone to watch your back and a back to watch

 

Some guilds are comprised of RL friends and family which makes it easy to settle things whether they're good, bad, complicated, or just plain weird

 

You always feel a sense of pride and accomplishment when you sport your phat loots, your tabard, and your guild name proudly wherever you go, letting people know you're capable of handling your class and whatever instances you do.

 

 

CON's

 

Headaches. This includes people who join, raid the banks, vaults, houses, and then /gquit, GM's and officers who have no clue what they're doing or how to settle things properly, people who think they're the shiznit and try to show up their guildmates and anyone else to prove they have an e-peen, and finally, people who lack the maturity to properly play a game

 

Guild Banks. Good and bad. GM's...DO NOT MAKE YOUR GB's FULL ACCESS TO ANYONE! If it's like your wife or sister, that's fine, but to people you might not know or think you do and they screw you over afterwards, block them out! I've seen the rise and fall of good guilds over this! People work hard to make their guilds great and to have one personal steal it and vendor it all in one night is dispicable!

 

Immaturity. I realize children and teens play the games. If you're a reputable guild and are high end content driven, plz, plz, PLZ make sure a recruit in consideration gets onto a ventrilo or other type of server and make them talk. If it's a kid (and no offense guys, but majority of guild break up happen over kids being immature) make sure you watch him/her like a damn hawk! Just because they're in a game doesn't mean they need to not be supervised! I realize it isn't your kid, but it's your guild and if you want it to stay good, don't let your guard down!

 

E-Peen. Guys...plz...from the female p.o.v., stop it with the "my e-peen is bigger than yours" thing. It's another cause of guild drama.

 

Drama Llama. If you can't handle a situation maturely, /gquit now. If you loose a roll on something and then scream and yell about it till your face is blue on vent, you need to re-prioritize your life. IT'S A GAME! Get over it, roll next time. If you have a problem with someone, don't try to figure it out on your own. Involve your GM and officers so they can help handle it. There's a reason reputable guilds get by so well. Their GM's and officers are good and dealing with things.

 

So, all in all, stop whining, have fun. As I used to say in the BG's when people complained of objectives being stolen or lost....LESS QQ MORE PEW PEW!
