I don't feel like switching back to my whitekitsune account right now so I am replying from here. First to jotas, I would not want to participate because I know from experience that guild wars are nothing but drama. even on here I have seen the flaming in world chat. I would not want to be a part of that. if my guildies decided they wanted to deal with the drama despite us being a drama free guild, then I would not stop them. I, however, would stay away. though your idea of going afk and just taking the last place award, it has its merits. no point in fighting even if we were the number one guild it wouldn't be worth it to fight for it.
now at niv, we actually are growing fairly quickly and as stated above, forget that drama. 500 honor and 500 insignias? sounds nice but it's not worth the drama. the whole point of me making my own guild is because I could not find a good guild. they were all either drama or silent and inactive. my guild is fun, friendly, and most importantly, NO DRAMA!
