I was just curious about why guild leaders chose to lead a guild versus be merely an officer or member. I also added a poll because I'm also curious about the what roles members play on this forum. ***The rest of this post is just me ranting about my guild experience and completely unnecessary for others to read. For those that do, I'm curious if you've had similar experiences.*** As for me, I've never been a guild leader. I've been in a total of two guilds since I started playing MMOs (about a year ago). I've been an officer in both of them. The first one was merely because I was on a different server than the other members, and they didn't think it was fair that I had no access to their benefits. So they promoted me so I could get upgrades on my own. In the second one they promoted me because they thought I would make a good officer and I accepted the offer lol. Unfortunately, I don't like the direction that guild is going but I like most of the people (including those that outrank me) so I plan to stay until Wildstar comes out. But I will most likely return to my old MMO (GW2) every now and then to visit because I really like many of the members. I know a few of them plan to at least try out WS and may create a WS branch, so maybe I can use Circles to hang out with them if we're on the same server/faction. As for why the guild leaders in these guilds chose to lead, the first one was a small group of friends and I have a feeling that the guild leader title was arbitrary. Everything about that guild was extremely casual. With the second guild leader, I think he was in hardcore guilds in the past and didn't like the atmosphere. In particular, I think he complained about being forced into specific builds and classes. In Wildstar, I will either join a guild my boyfriend wants to create or we'll both be lazy and join someone else's guild. Right now, I'm focusing on what I'm looking for in a guild.
