Default Emarr Guild expansion / merge

Heres the deal:

Im an officer in a guild and we are looking at expanding in order to go on bigger raids etc. We currently have 54 members (counting alts). We don't want to go on a recruiting spree because we want to be sure any new recuits are good, respectable players.

One idea we had was to find another smallish guild that has an established reputation that is looking to expand, and merge them.

We are aware of the potential problems with this, but I was wondering how it is actually done. Can guilds be merged by guild leader commands? Or do both guilds disband and reform?

Any help provided is appreciated.

To answer your question: no, I don't think there's any /guildmerge command or anything similar. Either one guild dissolves and each member character gets invited to the other guild or both dissolve and reform as new guild.

As far as I know at least- the one guild merger I was a part of was my old guild absorbing another, so we just invited them after they removed from their old guild.

Shard, I am going to get straight to the point. Why do you have to be so childish and try to stir crap up ALL the time. I can honestly say I don't ever recall you making a post thats not cutting someone down or trying to stir some crap up. I am guessing you must be some child and/or someone that has no life. Either one has to be true from my standpoint. I will end this post with this, grow up man!

Shard, please take your complaint to R&F where it belongs.

I am tired of arguing that topic over and over... Burro apologized for his actions, I forgave him and it's over now. You seem to be the only person still upset.

To keep this thread on topic, anyone who has been a part of a guild merge before and has any tips?

No, there aren't commands to do this.

Either 1 guild absorbs the other or both break up to form a new one.

Try doing an alliance with another guild first. Set up a shared chat channel.

Actual guild mergers can be rough. Once you actually go through with it, if you happen to piss off a key person from the other old guild and they leave, chances are a good chunk of the others will to. This leaves the current guild up in arms and most likely in worse shape than before the merger.

Having recently been part of a partial guild merger-ish, you really need to know who you are getting in with. As for small guilds, talk to the people you group with and end up getting along well with. See what their guild is like. Find their officers, and start some chat channel communications. Best bet is to do some raids together once you find potential co-guild and see how your members get along. Check the chemistry etc. If all seems to be going well, take it from there.

The last one hospitalized him and he still gets traumatic episodes whenever he sees a girl over 18 now. Besides, his arms are too tired to hit someone when he spends all his time jerking off over how cool he thinks he is posting here cutting people down. Either that or from reach arounds with Cerden.......

Flip...
coming here there are a few good people and a lot of cocksuckers.
best bet is to find people in game, it is a whole different world there than it is on this board. People that hink they are king shit here no one actually cares about in game. Best bet is to go around there find guilds with similar interests and talk to their officers, leader etc.

When I was in Domination, we merged with Phoenix Crusaders.

There will always be some people that are upset with the chane and leave shortly after, but for the most part our merger went pretty damn good.

As for the merger itself,

We had a big party in South Ro with beer, cakes, pies, fireworks etc etc... Each member of Domination deguilded, then Kanly personally invited each member into the guild: where upon each guild member addressed their new guildie in ooc and shout welcoming them to the guild. It was a really fun day IMO.

Anyway, what you need to know is yes...either one gulid disbands and gets a guild invite from the other guilds officers OR both guilds disband after a guild name approvl has come down from GMs for a new name.

Now Vaalik, just because I take it easy on you dont think you get a free pass. This douche posted something in the scammer board that didnt belong there and now I get to play with him by posting something on the general boards that doesnt belong there.

Kiebler, I was just having fun, don't take it personally please there were too many openings there to not take up on, I know I leave myself wide open a lot too. Anyone that takes things I say personally needs some help....

I agree - get into a chat channela nd do some alliance type stuff first then go from there.

Make sure you know each other well though first and all like each other. Kinda like a probie period for the respective guilds.

Things is when guild absorbs another (as PC did with Domination) the new members gotta go by the new rules....

So if that is NOT what you want, then you need to have both guilds disband and make a new guild with new rules, etc.

Was online today, and someone mentioned a rumour that The Grey Tower is disbanding.

Just to clarify, this is not the case. We are not disbanding anytime soon.

You could always consider rather then making one guild disband and join yours going the route that MS and SF did when they made Midnight Fury. They voted on nearly everything, from what I understand, from the rules, to the loot system, to the new name. Then the two leaders acted as co-leaders for a while.

I think that route would cut down on the there being any *new* people or any hard feelings. I was not a member of MS or SF when they merged but I was close friends with a SF member who was telling me about it as it was going on.
