Welcome along to another edition of Guild Chat, the column through which we join forces to solve a particular guild-related issue for one Massively Overpowered reader in need. This time, we have a submission from reader Dan, who has recently decided that his small casual guild needs some officers after some of his real-life friends volunteered to take up the role. Dan’s question lies in the best way to select those officers and he wonders whether selecting his friends will make the guild seem quite cliquish and impenetrable for the new members, or whether having real-world people he can trust in the role makes things any easier. I’m sure many guild leaders can look back on the early days and sympathise with this dilemma, so I’m happy to provide an answer to this common problem here within Guild Chat.
Read below for Dan’s full submission and to see my reasoning on the matter at hand, and don’t forget to keep scrolling and leave your thoughts in the comments section.
Welcome along to Guild Chat, the column through which the Massively Overpowered community gathers together to help one reader in need with his or her guild-related dilemma. This time, reader Jake wishes to gather opinions on the best way to fully integrate into a new guild and move out of the initiate rank and into the upper echelons as quickly as possible. Jake is new to MMORPGs, this is his first guild, and he has joined without the benefit of real-life friends already being established in the MMO world. He is part of a levelling guild with a rather large roster of over 100 characters and is having fun but is wondering how he advances the ranks and becomes a more permanent fixture in his virtual home. Read on for Jake’s full submission alongside my ideas for impressing his new guildmates. and don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments below.
Pull up a pew and get comfortable, dear readers: It’s time for another advice-filled installment of Guild Chat, my own little corner of Massively Overpowered in which I join forces with the MOP community in order to tackle some tough guild dilemmas. Pushy leaders, drama llamas, and raid team friction are nothing when we pull together to tackle the issue! The topic at hand this week comes from a reader called Nathaniel who is stuck between a controlling guild leader and a roster full of potential that is getting tired of being denied the perks of guild membership. Let’s see if we can’t alleviate Nate’s woes together.
For the full problem, see Nathaniel’s submission below, and don’t forget to add your two cents to the comments section.
