The Daily Grind: What’s the saddest guild breakup you’ve experienced in an MMO?

Anybody wanna do a mage?

Guilds dissolve. It’s almost inevitable. You get a group of people together and fun times happen, but eventually pressures both inside and out build up and the group dissolves. It doesn’t happen to every guild, but it’s definitely the usual arc of these player organizations. And sometimes that’s not a big deal, but other times it’s… well, just sad to watch.

Maybe it starts with a good friend being removed from the guild, for reasons justified or otherwise. Maybe it starts with a romantic breakup that leads to a cascade effect. Maybe it’s just a slow pull of people separating and doing their own thing until there’s no core remaining. Maybe it’s a combination of all of the above; maybe it’s something else altogether.

We all have stories of when these things happened and were sad, I think. So today, let’s share those stories. What’s the saddest guild breakup you’ve ever experienced in an MMO? What made you upset as the various members were pulling apart and going their own ways, even if you understood why it was happening?
