So you want to make a guild?
Please follow the guidelines listed in this thread!
While it is very early to begin thinking about guilds, we are always excited to see the community starting to get together! During the past few game launches this has usually included players starting to recruit for guilds before the start of CB. This is a great way to make sure you have a tight-knit group of players with common goals!
Be serious about it if you intend to create a guild!
You have a great guild name idea, or you just want to get some friends together. Great!
If you want to recruit other players from the Pre-Beta forums, we want to know you're going to take it seriously. Otherwise it just clutters the forums and serves no real purpose. This makes Valkie make sadface!
Do your groundwork before you post!
Before you make a post in the Aeria forums, make sure you've done your groundwork! A guild is a place for people with similar goals, or outlooks, or gameplay styles to hang out together, play together, and basically be together. If you provide a way to do that before the game starts, you'll have more luck building a solid group of players.
Begin your recruitment campaign!
- Create your own guild forums
Guild forums are a great way to keep everyone up to date! You have control over announcements, polls, and the forums in general. You can keep things organized and make sure that the guild is where you want it to be.
- Choose your criteria
What kind of players do you want to be a part of your guild?
Are you setting any requirements?
Casual players only? PvP heavy? Roleplay?
- Choose a Name
While this is not completely mandatory (that is to say, I won't lock a topic if it doesn't have a name), it's a lot easier to get recruits for a named guild!
There are several other tools you can use to keep up with your guild. You can create a social network page (facebook, etc), build a group on xfire, or even set up your own teamspeak/ventrilo.
If you choose to recruit on the Aeria forums for your guild, please follow the guidelines listed below. Posts that do not follow the guidelines will be locked, and a link provided to this post to help the poster build a better post.. of post-iness.
