Guild Name Change Poll

-# or -letter?
Hey Everyone,

We understand that a lot of people aren't exactly thrilled to have a -# in their guild name (EX: Holy Avengers-2) but our team is now able to massively change this.

What do you prefer?

Leave it as -# (-1, -2, -3, -4)

Change to -server letter (-T,-L,-G,-E)

It's a shame you can't just name change guilds completely.

If it were me, I'd probably prefer the server letter than a number though.

Agree the the chance to change the guild name. Heck make it another gold sink and have those that want to change the name, pay for it.

My three wishes in order of priority:

- Free change of guild names per ticket request from guild leader when other guilds of the same name exist.

- Oldest guild with name gets to keep the name as it was. Other guilds with same name get server letter added.

- Server letters for all guilds of same names.


As for the numbers: An eyesore. Get rid of them. Just a shame this was not suggested or done when this actually was a major issue: right after the server merges. Several guilds have now disbanded and reformed to get rid of those labels of merger fail.

I think letters are a better option. Not everyone (especially the newcomers) know the server numbers in order. I remember them since I've been around when Lailah was the only server, but not many people know that it went:

1 - Lailah
2 - Teos
3 - Etain
4 - Gaia

Server list switched around a lot and some got confused as to the age of the server. With the letter tags, it's easier to distinguish. I know I had done that to all my toons that shared a name. If it had a 3, I switched it to -E same with the -2. Switched it to -T. It wasn't a difficult process.

It would be nice if you could buy a guild name change scroll cuz i have a 1-15pvp guild named Proelium Fisters and in about a year we are gonna move to 20-30pvp so the name proelium fisters wont work anymore.

well.. a Pantheon guild did not exist on Lailah at merge, but yea i heard guild was made once by someone but they disbanded it, tho name from Lailah seems to still be in system even if its disbanded.
hmm.. Pantheon-E vs Pantheon-3 ,,same same but different lmfao!

i have a BETTER idea... change the - to <

that would become Pantheon<3

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

I vote for that!!! Razz

I agree with user billdoor.

I think who ever created thier guild first should not have any additional letters / numbers. I believe they are entitled to use the guild name. The other people who created the guild after the first one was created should have the -server (-L,-T,-G, -E).

I also like the idea you can change your guild with a guild name change ^_^. Thats a good thought.
