I have a thought about Mergers and Acquisitions in DDO.

How about a way to implement mergers for DDO guilds. I'm in a small guild (2 players) and we have our guild rank up to 54 as of today. I have discovered we are not unique. There are a lot of small guilds out there consisting of 6 accounts or less. I lot of solo players by themselves. When we talk to them about joining our guild, they don't want to leave all that they have built up, and we also don't want to give up our guild xp to join someone else.

I'm not sure how you put it together mechanically, but it would be interesting to have a mechanism to merge 2 guilds. Obviously, there are some issues involved with it, including guild leadership, officers, etc., but nothing I see as a deal killer or unsolvable.

As far as guild ownership, maybe earned through % of Guild XP earned (by account) where the total guild xp is 100%. Turn the guilds into little corporations where the accounts in the guild are shareholders.

Just thinking outside the box,

Not sure of the best way to implement, but I think the idea is interesting.

No one wants to lose their airship. There are guilds that cooperate with each other usually through sharing a chat channel or vent channel. Before airships came along guilds did occasionally merge and I suppose you could say they still do in a way as smaller guilds bleed players into larger guilds.
