This is a question for some of the people in large guilds or even the leaders of those guilds.
How does someone like me (see below) get their foot in the door of the large guild/channel community tactfully
A couple of quick points about me:
- I started in 2006, left before the cap was increased from 10, and took about a 1.5 year break.
- I have solo leveled my guild to the mid 70's. (One other rl friend who plays about once a month)
- Main toon is soon to start his 26th life and I have 3 other toons that are 3+ tr's. Total of 11 toons I play
I only share that to show I have been around, and in the course of that time have played with many of the well known guilds and their leaders constantly over the last couple of years both leveling up and raiding. Sometimes I use voice chat, sometimes I type in party chat. This is due to where my computer is located in our home and what is going on with my kids and wife...i.e. sleeping, nap time, watching tv, etc. I don't broadcast who I am and often just play my position without a lot of banter or bickering. So often those players or leaders of guilds I mentioned aren't even aware they play with me fairly constantly, especially since I am on various toons.
I am not a person who likes to ask "Can I be a part of your guild" or "Do you have a channel I can be in". So my question to those guild/channel leaders is this:
With the current scene of large guilds and private channels, how does someone like me become a part of that community without rudely asking in game about it. The only channel I currently belong to is the "TR" channel of which I was invited to by Kitts. I've worked hard enough on my guild (was a group of rl friends of which I'm essentially the only one left) so it is hard to give that up, so I thought perhaps finding a channel would be an option.
So again my question:
- how does someone like me get their foot in the door of that community tactfully
Thanks for any thoughts.
