So in looking at what is possible in the future of guilds and feedback I am getting from guys checking out U5 in Lamannia, I can't help but wonder what is in store for the current guild structure on Sarlona. My understanding of the guild renown and perks available to guilds sound like there will be strength in numbers. This is no time to get DoOoOmMMMy, but in the discussions I have had with guys that are actively looking at guild renown, I am wondering what it will mean for they way guilds are currently set up.
I have always been predisposed to join guilds of competent and mature gamers, not necessarily large in size. Scheduled 'guild raids' and so forth have never been a prerequisite of any guild I have been in. That being said, I tend to find myself in mid-sized to smaller guilds. Now I am wondering if that type of guild will even exist if large numbers are needed to get the best perks in guild-land.
I have talked it over with friends and guildies and am wondering if some of the smaller, but like-minded guilds will combine. I am also interested in seeing if there will be a mad rush to guild recruit right after U5 launches. I don't believe in l337 guild crapola, but I have always been one to look for a guild that has good guys, not just lots of them. I wonder if that will even exist soon.
I am posting this in Sarlona because that is where I play...and I am wondering what my Sarlona peeps are thinking about how guild renown is going to change things around here. (Or if it even will)
Dam*....just realized I used the wrong "eminent vs. imminent". You know what I mean!
