I prefer small guilds where I know most people, though admittedly Icy Veins hasn't left me much time to socialize with all my new guildies as of late.

This poll needs more options Posted Image .

Im used to guilds with a max of say 20 active accounts / users - we had a high of 13 the other day!

I personally dont see much benefit from being in a guild with 1000+ members, guilds are meant to be personal places for banter, help and ultimately friendships, as soon as you go beyond a certain number of members you might as well just be guildless.

Just from my personal experiences ofc!

I like the smaller guild with people who are active. Like Peelyon said, 1000+ people in a guild is the same as hanging out in general chat in a capital city.

Did you and Vlad meet from the same Guild?

No, we started playing WoW together. We played a number of games together before that ;)

A guild where I am in charge was not an option Posted Image

As for me I was in two fairly large guilds before the guild I'm in now. The first guild I was in combined with a new guild and it became tons of people I didn't really know with a couple who I did, at that point it became pointless to be a member as I was an unknown to them as they were to me.

I joined a new guild and as it grew in size I noticed that the raid group I was leading became lost in a sea of the revolving door of people coming in and leaving the guild. My raid group had became a guild within a guild because we was the only ones that communicated with each other.

After that we left and formed a new guild, to be small and to be people we know, if you are not hanging out and playing with people you know then is it really enjoyable? Being in large guilds if you are not on the top you are not really a part of the guild you are a spec of dust waiting to be washed away.

Small guilds bring more to the table than a large guild IMO.

As it sits there are 112 characters in my guild (many alts), but I'm proud to say that I know and have talked to at some point every single person and would consider at least 90% of them friends.

I voted for a small guild, but I would definitely say that 75+ members is quite big to be considered "small".

Both Damien and I were, for a good while, part of the rather tightly-knit leadership of a small 25-man guild (in Wrath of the Lich King). We had about 30-35 active members, and about another 10 "friends and relatives" or so. It was quite good times for me, and I enjoyed the atmosphere a lot. Being that we were in a council-type-leadership, I got to experience the ability to lead without having all the pressure put on me.

That guild later turned into a much smaller 10-man guild, and that was also very enjoyable, as we had a group of 10-12 active raiders/members, and I can confidently say I knew all of them well at that point. It was like a "home away from home", so to speak.

Lastly, I later joined a big 25-man guild as a regular member, and while that was quite fun, it did feel like I was just a class/spec combination there, and nothing really more.

I can't imagine ever being in a guild with 1000 members! What would be the point?

I personally prefer small guilds i like to see people on vent and interact with them. this to me is what keeps me playing a game it needs to be social for me to enjoy it.

I like my current guild, about 400 characters (lots of alts). I think there are about 80 active accounts, I'm not sure because I haven't checked the exact number in some time. At peaks there are about 45 people online, this happens mostly during raid times. otherwise there are between 8 and 20 people online. All these guys are great and a lot of friends/socials are in here as well.

I would agree that 75+ mains is quite a large guild really - a smaller guild with a core group of people is better as you can get to know everyone and it makes the game much more enjoyable. We've been going through the slightly painful task of replacing some of the guys that had been arround for about 5 years (lost them to the dark side/SWOR) so it has taken some time but I think we are getting back to having some really good banter.

There is also the difference between being in a social/raiding/hardcore guild which I think again makes a big difference about the sort of people it attracts.

Generally I have found that large guilds are not even that good for leveling - if you are in a group where you know people quite well there is usually someone about who will help run you through tricky quests or instances, or to level an alt beside.

Cheers for the extra voting option!

Sadly the one down side of having a very small (10-15 active users) means that if a few people decide to take a break it can hit you pretty hard.

Weve really struggled with the length of 4.3 with still no firm date set for MoP, plus the addition of Diablo, weve kind of grinded to a halt. I think plenty of guilds are struggling to maintain progress / keep things ticking over, and sadly I think its a content issue. I was really hoping for a stop gap raid like Trial of the Crusader this expansion so the final raid like Dragon Soul could have been pushed back a little further.

However Id still prefer to solider on knowing the people around you, rather than nameless faces. With the ability to create free guild websites, Facebook groups and other things its easy to get to know people a lot more than you used to. After all the only reason I still play WoW is for the people I play with.

Have never yet seen a big (500+ members) guild who are also a viable raiding guild. The big guilds per realm seem to attract all the undesirable people such as beggers and spammers.

I have always preferred a smaller guild who can competently manage 10 man raids without the need to pug people. Having said that, I have just realm transferred away from the realm I have played on for 6 years - due to it being overrun with immature players, so currently I am looking for guild!

definately partial to the smaller guild, but then again, im co guild leader in one guild, and leader in a second guild (a parody guild of our main guild just for fun...i know, us RP'ers are WEIRD lol) .... then i have two more just for bank space...... id rather team up with other small sister guilds like ours for a raid, then beg for entry into a raid from one of the "big" guilds.......lets face it...it kind of makes you feel like your in a meat market...."spin around" "show me your gear" "whats your ilvl" "link me your recount" ....nope, i like THAT rogue better, they are sparklier....*head--->desk*..its just not FUN.... and its supposed to be FUN! right? :) First thing our members get for being new members is enough gold to train. Then they get new bags. Embersilk. 4 of them. Then they get potions elixirs and food for their level..... Then they get PETS! and TOYS! LOTS of em!!! Because a Guild, even one as little...ESPECIALLY one as little as ours, should BE FUN! *^__^*

Like people said, this poll is really really unprecise...

I prefer guilds with 20-30 people online at any given time. I don't need to know them, although I hope it's a guild that has some decent requirements so I know who am I dealing with... Notes ftw.

      Oi, mates! Let me just briefly introduce me and this guild. My name is Beautymen and I have been playing ever since WoTLK. During this great expansion I was heavily involved into raiding on Quel'Thalas. Ever since I left these days behind the sensation of raiding and progressing has been tickling my sensitive parts. Therefore, when Legion launched I came back to play with my mate Kraishan and we founded Mythic Busters.
       
      What is Mythic Busters?
      Our guild, Mythic Busters, is a friendly bunch of people from all around the world who are looking to get into raiding. Especially, when you have been gone from the game for some time, you might have lost your raiding mojo and find it hard to be re-introduced.
      This guild offers you the chance to start raiding again in Legion through a fun and relaxed way. No hard requirements, just fair and square play. We have several divisions within the guild to cater to different players. For instance, we run Mythic+ to gear up new players and currently we are building progress and farm runs through the newest raids.
       
      What makes raiding different with you guys?
      Good question, me. Well, if I might be so egocentric as to say that first of all: I believe we have created a great atmosphere within our guild. I, as a raid leader, try to entertain the raid group on Discord by keeping our nights social and fun.

      Sounds great. When do you raid?
      Right now we raid on Wednesdays and Sundays from 7:30PM (invites) till about 11:00PM server time. These raids are currently focused on ToS HC progression. On Fridays we also run a normal mode farm for alts/lowerer geared members.
       
      Awesome. Who are you looking for?
      We accept any and every social player who is either experienced or new to raiding. Just be a chill or dude or dudewoman! And of course, ready slash willing to learn.
       
      You sold me at dudewoman! How do I join?
      Feel free to respond underneath this post or whisper me ingame (Beautymen-QuelThalas or Beautyman#2868).

      About us:
      Gordian Knot is a 20-man semi-hardcore raiding guild that consists of experienced raiders with some of them having raiding experience as far back as Vanilla.
      We are a friendly group who enjoys World of Warcraft and loves raiding. We have fun and joke around but when bosses need to go down then all is serious! We wish for all our members to enjoy the game as much as we do and we expect raiders to maintain a 70% attendance per month.
      We also enjoy a variety of other activities such as running a lot of Mythic+ dungeons doing alt-runs, achievement runs etc.
      There are a few things we hold in high value but above else we value friendliness and politeness towards guildies and other players and skillfulness when it comes to the more serious parts of the game.
      Currently :
      We raid 3 nights a week, Wednesdays, Sundays and Mondays, from 20:00 till 23:00 server time.
      Although we are a 20-man guild, we usually run an extra group in order to get more people to experience the joys of raiding, help new raiders learn the Knot's way to down bosses and gearing up. Usually, these runs happen on Thursdays. Also, every Friday and sometimes Saturdays too, we're on RBGs killing alliance scums!
      Saturdays are generally left for those RBGs or older content runs for fun and drinking!
      Our current guild progress is 3/9 on Tomb of Sargeras mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to get Cutting Edge for this patch!

      We are also open and welcome social applications.

      Hello! This is Fox from Velocity. We're a not-so-hardcore morning Mythic raiding guild on Sargeras. Currently 3/9M, 9/9H ToS. Last tier we reached 7/10M NH in the two months leading up to ToS. Now we'll be focusing on Mythic ToS progression. A fun fact about us, since were a morning guild we actually got 2 realm 1st's on Heroic. Worldwide our H Goroth kill was 15th, and Demonic Inquisition was 8th (according to wowprogress). Were looking for good and reliable players for our roster, mainly DPS, who can learn the fights quickly and attend our early raid times. 
      [A] <Velocity> 3/9M 9/9H (7/10M) - MORNING raid LFM
      Raid Times: 10am-1pm CST | Tues/Wed/Thurs / Mon(Opt/Alt)[/quote]
       
        Looking for:
      Currently Need
      Ranged - Mage, Ele Sham, Warlock, Boomkin
      Melee - Rogue
      Healer - Resto Sham
      Would consider

      Tank - Flex Bear
        Requirements: 
      Item Lvl:  920+/-
      Exp:  9/9H (Pref)
      *Specific classes are listed above as preference. However, any class is welcomed! We will consider anyone who is willing to join and can commit to our raid times, we may also make exceptions if you are under the requirements.
       
      Expectations:
      We’re not super hardcore, we like having fun, but we do have high standards; so we expect our raiders to play their class well, come prepared, FOLLOW MECHANICS, have a sense of humor (or not) and adapt quickly. Prior Mythic raiding experience is a plus, though not necessary if you're a fast learner. 
      Due to our morning raid times, we encourage everybody to communicate about attendance via Calendar invites, Discord channels, or through tells with an officer. It’s important to know who will be available week-by-week so we can make arrangements for raid days. This is necessary to avoid setbacks and keep up with progression! We are very understanding when someone needs to post-out. Schedules change, things come up and real life always comes first. All we ask is for a heads up!
        Perks: Feasts, Codex, Spirit Cauldrons, near-unlimited guild repairs, and the occasional gem or enchants. We run alt raids and Mythic+ 15s with each other each week. We're a tight-knit guild, who's always joking around and helping each other out. We also play other games together outside of WoW, like Overwatch, SC2, Heroes, Diablo, Dota2, LoL and whatever else.

      Additional Info: The morning slot is kind of niche, so it’s important we find players who are dedicated and realistic with their schedules.
      Our Officers are veteran players who have experience raiding at high levels, as well as a majority of our core players. We want to uphold a certain level of standard, the point being that we can joke and have fun while getting stuff done.
      If we sound like a good fit, let us know! Leave a reply here, send us a tell on BNET or in game. Or be old school and send an in-game mail! Thanks for reading, and we hope to hear from you soon! =D
