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!

If you say what realm you are on you may find your fellow icy-veiners have a home for you!

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.

      We are also open to discuss a possible merge and get a smaller group or guild that is struggling to get their raids goins, or that they want to advance to the next level. Most of us are versatile people and we can possibly reroll to achieve a good compasition after a merge.
      Any social and friendly person who wants to join us for kicks and giggles is welcome. Just poke any of our officers online and you will get an invite for a social spot (no raiding spot).
      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 80% 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 4/8 in The Eternal Palace mythic, and we're focusing on getting further Mythic progress. Our aim is to always progress as much as possible but also to have a relaxed and fun atmosphere at the same time!

      Guild Name: <Dead Naga Storage>
      Faction: Horde
      Realm & Realm Type: PvP (EST) [Exact server is still undecided due to streamers and quick filling up of servers. We will know for sure by Sunday 8/25 2 days before launch]
      Play style: Hardcore, Semi-Hardcore, Casual (Casual recruitment may change later)
      Focus: Both HC Raid progression, and HC WPvP+PvP progression. Need to fill multiple 40m raid teams and multiple PvP teams.

      Class Needs:
      We are still recruiting all players of all kinds atm. We encourage you to play what you want and what is fun for you. This is just a list of the classes we want and need for our guild and to have for our core Raid and core PvP teams. (As of now we need ALL classes, this list is expected to change as we recruit more)

      • Druid – any spec
      • Hunter – any spec
      • Mage – any spec
      • Priest – any spec
      • Rogue - any spec
      • Shaman – any spec
      • Warlock – any spec
      • Warrior – any spec

      Introduction: 
      Dead Naga Storage is a guild build specifically for the launch of WoW Classic. GET EXCITED! We were a very powerful and progressive filled guild back in the original Vanilla days in 2005. We have great guild leadership experience and Raid and PvP leadership experience as well as BG shot calling since 2005 – present day. We are a PvE-focused progression and PvP inspired guild interested in filling our teams with dedicated members who are willing to be available and dedicate themselves to learn their roles and characters for our core 40m Raid and WPvP groups. We plan on having quite a few raid and pvp teams set up within a couple weeks or months. Our members are expected to clearly and consistently put forth effort to be as knowledgeable as possible on their class, BiS, be mature, and skilled players. We want you to be competitive!! Our leaders have a lot of experience in clearing major raids like MC, BWL, Onyx, Zul Gurub, AQ and Naxx so you know you’re joining a great guild. MC we will be going in at week 1 of raid launch! We also want our members, during the beginning of the launch, to help with grouping up for quick and easy dungeon clears and group quests or ganking help. We are first and foremost a family here and protect each other!

      Goals: Ultimately, our goal is to efficiently complete all raid content that WoW Classic has to offer! NO EXCEPTIONS! We aim to keep a lean, tight-knit, fun, and mature guild we can all call home and be proud of! When we are not raiding, be expected to push high-tier PvP ranks through coordinated team in BG’s and WPvP! Be ready day 1! Once we have a significant amount at level cap, we will start gearing together for MC clears and halting Alliance groups at the gates! NOTE: We will also be forming Devilsaur Mafia and control the loot for our guild! WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR, AND DO NOT WANT ANY SELF SERVING PLAYERS… THIS IS TEAM BASED PROGRESSION GUILD!

      PvE – What we are looking for specifically: Solid players who are interested in pushing content while also being afforded the option of a flexible raid schedule. We want people who want to be a part of a community. We are looking currently for Class Leaders, Raid Leaders, and PvP Leaders for our multiple groups. At first lets focus on leveling up and having fun! We will be in MC on week 1 or 2 of launching. We are currently accepting players of all classes and roles. ATM our raid times will be projected around 8:00 p.m. EST (times may change accordingly)

      PvP – What we are looking for specifically: Serious players who are looking to push ranks very early on and either know the Honor system or be willing to learn it. Accepting players of all classes and roles currently. We are actively looking for PvP/Premade Leaders as well.

      Loot System: Loot Council system.

      We are a group of experienced WoW players, who have experienced for the most part raiding at the highest level (mostly from TBC onwards) and some are IRL friends. We’re mainly looking for experienced players/players who want to clear all of the endgame content, bants are also a must (but you need to be serious from time to time). We aren't the type of guild that will only take the classes that will be dealing the top damage, because all specs were viable for the most part, the only exception is for tanks ( only warriors ).
       
      What we offer
       
      • A social, family frie- insert we don’t do that meme here. Expect bants, we also like our salt , we know where to draw the line thought. It’s just clean fun, it’s just bants maaaate, dont worry about it.
      • Mainly a PvE guild, but we’re up for Bgs and world PvP/capital raids, etc.
      • We can help with classes/builds, offer advice and such.
      • A highly efficient loot council.
      What we expect
       
      • Be over 18 (and somewhat mature )
      • Be able to take criticism.
      • Know your class and rotations (you don’t have to fully min-max, but we expect you to have consumables, enchants. )
      • Good written/spoken English.
      • Good raid attendance (but we also acknowledge real-life problems, so there’s that) • Announce if you can make it to events/raids/whatever.
      • Try and contribute to the guild in whatever way you can.
      • Specing and playing in a way which maximises the raid's the dps and not just yours (using curse if told on warlock, not using debuffs if asked to....)
      • Dank memes.
      Raid Schedule
      • Currently we decided on Monday/Wednesday starting 8pm to 11pm (breaks included) but we’re open to discussion. (We will most likely hold a vote before we start raiding).
      •We might add a 3rd raid day by phase 3.
      Apply by contacting one of them
      Sunderai#21123 (on btag) or Sunderai#3299 (discord)
      Azkaael#6081 (discord)

      [The Battle Tavern] / Horde / Myzrael / Semi-Hardcore / 6 - 9pm PST / LootCouncil
      =Introduction=
      The Battle Tavern is recruiting semi-hardcore players for World of Warcraft: Classic. We are looking to fill out our raiding roster, but also accepting players for all types of content, including serious PvPers, avid gold goblins, and casual friends & family. We are comprised of all sorts of players, from Gladiator arena champions to Cutting Edge raiders. Most of us are Vanilla Veterans, including our leaders, Kaiwin & Duloc. We are well versed in its content, including the completion of AQ40 and most of Naxxramas, and all of us are excited to get back in and crush the content all over again! Prepare for Adventure!
      =Raid Schedule=
      Thursday – 6-9pm (PST) (This raid night will be streamed live to Twitch)
      Friday – 6-9pm (PST)
      (Please be online and ready to raid at least 10 minutes before this time for invites)
      =Member Expectations=
      Raiding is serious business, at least to us. We expect all raiders to maintain a semi-hardcore mindset during raids, with emphasis on player responsibility, including positioning, knowledge of their class and raid mechanics. We also ask that you come prepared with a positive and patient mindset. Consumables will not be required until we reach higher difficulty raids (at least AQ40). Raiders will be required to be at least 16 years old. Tensions can get heated while raiding, but we all want the same thing, to kill the boss and get fat loots. Loot will be handled by a lootcouncil consisting of officers with a BiS list for every spec. Please no drama, no toxicity, and no raging. We are laid back, jovial, and want people to have fun, but we also expect all those who join to behave accordingly. 
      We hope to dive into the steamy pools of Molten Core as soon as possible, and our core group will be more than willing to get you raid ready.
