One of the best questions that I’ve seen MMO guilds ask upon interviews with new recruits is, ‘What do you want to get out of this guild?” It’s a great question because it gets to the heart of whether or not the player and the guild is compatible. If a player is looking for one thing but the guild’s focus is in a completely different area, it’s best not to form that relationship in the first place.
If I’m being honest, what I look for in a guild is primarily social bonds and chat, with actual guild events trailing behind at number two. I love it when a guild seems genuinely happy to see me and when we can all engage in encouraging and interesting discussions as we play. I also love being part of guilds that practice selfless giving and assistance as a two-way street.
What do you want out of your MMO guild?
