Officers’ Quarters: Split decision


Every Monday, Scott Andrews contributes [hide]Officers’ Quarters[/hide], a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership. He is the author of [hide]The Guild Leader’s Handbook[/hide], available now from [hide]No Starch Press[/hide].

Just about every long-time WoW player has, at some point or another, found themselves [hide]at a crossroads[/hide], wishing they could split into [hide]multiple copies[/hide] like a mage. Should you stay with the guild you joined and the friends you’ve made there, or should you go join that other guild so you can [hide]see more content[/hide]? That’s probably the most frequently asked question that I receive.

This week, a player faces a similarly difficult crossroads, but in this case, one of the guilds she has to choose between wants to make her the guild leader.

Hey,

I’m currently split between two guilds. On the one hand, I have Guild A, which has been my home for two years, and more or less died about two months ago (by died, I mean that the Guild Master has completely abandoned it, and the only officer that logs on more than once every three-four weeks is the one who’s recently returned from a WoW break). The GM has been swapping which of his characters has the «big rank», and never logs on to actually play, let alone to give any explanation as to why he no longer cares for the guild. A few people still log on regularly, mostly, I believe, out of a hope that Guild A will return to its former glory.

On the other hand, I have Guild B, a serious but lighthearted and social raiding guild, which I joined on my main just over a month ago, when it was apparent that Guild A had been abandoned. I told myself that only my shaman would move over to B, but in the end, I preferred B’s humorous banter and regular conversations over A’s graveyard-like silence, and moved over all but two of my alts.[hide]Continue reading Officers’ Quarters: Split decision[/hide]Filed under: [hide]Officers’ Quarters (Guild Leadership)[/hide][hide]Officers’ Quarters: Split decision[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Mon, 18 Jul 2011 09:00:00 EST.
