Blog Spotlight: Guilds

Blog Spotlight: Guilds

Every Week, Community Manager Laura Genender takes a look at one or more of the entries being created in our MMORPG.com blogs. This week, she looks at Bardoc's recent entry about the treatment of new players in guilds.

This past month or so, my interest in guild-related debates has been growing. As the co-leader of a growing guild in EverQuest, I am constantly thinking about my guild, and looking at other users' experiences to parallel mine. I love that all guilds are different in little ways (no, not in a corny way like snowflakes), and through our differences in environment, policies, goals, etc. we can offer players varied experiences in the same realm.

This week, user Bardoc posts about his guild, and the relationships between older and younger members in general. He explains the inevitable internal war between these two factions of guild members:

"If you're younger the older members seem to act like they are owed something. That they need you to do it their way or when they want you to. For the older members it looks like the young members don't have any respect for or ownership in the guild. They are simply there to get their loot."
