Leadership in a guild has never been something I have sought. It has happened more than once, but literally every single time it was mostly an accident wherein it turned out I was at least moderately responsible and intelligent. That meant getting duties handed to me on more than one occasion, which has usually… not helped the guild as a whole, but that’s often because if your guild is handing off duties to the competent person not seeking out leadership, that says something not-great about the existing state of affairs.
So today I’m curious if our readers have also ever wound up in a leadership position in an MMO guild. Keep in mind that this is referring to leadership in organizations consisting of prior strangers, not necessarily a guild with just you and your existing friends to hang out with. Have you ever been the guild leader or part of the officer group, for whatever reason?
