Hey All-

I'm back from OTS and now I can update the CGMG! If you've updates to your current listing or have a guild that would like to be listed, please follow the guidelines in the Sticky and PM me or Post in THIS Thread!

*NEW!* The Heralds Category is open for votes! All nominations must be from separate guilds and account for 15 votes or roughly 25% of the Home Server's Current Guild Count, whichever comes first. Please place nominations on the Home Server's Forum and link it to a thread in the Guild Matchup Forums! There are Five Heralds Categories. Please review the definition before nominating a guild for a Herald Title. If you've any questions on whether a guild would qualify for a Title Nomination, do not hesitate to PM Kistilan and ask.

Below are some current guidelines. For a complete overview of guidelines to Guild Types/Categories and Time Zone/Locations, check out the CGMG Sticky. Please note that the FIRST Guild Type you list (if you pick a set of guild types) will be the variable that places you into one of the five Categories. Feel free to mix and match Guild Types, but only the first one will be the determining factor under which Category you fall under The Categorical Guild Matchup Guildlistings Thread.
