World of Warcraft, originally uploaded by Jeffery Simpson.

I’ve always had a problem staying in guilds. It’s not that I’m particularly unfriendly or unhelpful; it’s just they seem to fall apart shortly after I join them.

My first guild fell apart quicker than a party lead by Stockwell Day [cbc], and the next one I found lasted not even a week before all the level 60s (and their alts) decided they’d be better off in an exclusive level 60 (and their alts) guild.

When I finally did find a guild that I liked and that seemed stable I ended up leaving the game for about six months and they (understandibly) kicked me out from the guild.

So now it’s just me and my grey tabard. The game, especially since I enjoy playing on a RP server, is a lot more fun for me when I’m in a guild. Especially since all the friends I’ve made in game are now at level 60, and I’m still struggling along at level 53.

    That’s odd. Usually The guild leadership is transferred to me (Kim Campbell) just before everyone quits the game to go back to school.

    “That’s odd. Usually The guild leadership is transferred to me (Kim Campbell) just before everyone quits the game to go back to school.”

    That was the most awesome comment ever. I heart Kim Campbell jokes. I hope is was meant as a joke, because I laughed myself out of the chair.

    Kim Campbell? As in the former Canadian PM?

    Guilds are far too laden with drama. The best I’ve known have either put comraderie over eliteness, or ridiculousness over seriousness.

    (Ridiculosity over seriosity …)

    Yes Kim Campbell,
    “Canada is the homeland of equality, justice and tolerance. ” -Kim Campbell

    It was just too good a set up for a good KC joke.

    I’m confused at the Kim Campbell jokes, but I’m a ways south of the Canadian border, so I have an excuse. :/

    Also, I’ve had pretty good luck with guilds, but that’s partially because I and some friends got together and started our own; that might be the way to go for you, get some like minded people who hate their guilds or the drama they have to deal with, and start your own guild. It’ll be small, and you guys won’t be running Molten Core or anything, but it’ll at least be nice to log on and not have to deal with a world of crap.

    Yeah, or the trick might be to start a guild with real life friends. The trouble being that none of my real life friends are on my server.

    All I want is a nice group of people to quest with and chat with while in the game. As opposed to now which requires standing around IF and ending up with a bunch of idiots, which I think is a common experiance for nearly everyone.
