    So I have a question to all the guilds currently recruiting: are any of you afraid of your guild name being taken when the game launches? I don't know if guild name is server specific or not, but I assume like character names being taken, this could be a very real issue. I am also curious about how you would go about protecting against it.

    This was just a silly thought that came to me after looking at the Recruitment board. I noticed that many guilds have put a lot of effort into their websites and other media (kudos to you!), so I imagine it would be very annoying to have your guild name taken after all that hard work.

    Please keep in mind that I am merely curious and am not planning on holding guild names ransom. Though I'm a little scared that I'm giving mean people ideas and you will all blame me when the time comes. :cry:

    I think (and please don't quote me on this, cause I'm not sure), the guild names will be server specific.

    Either way, the best way to ensure your guild name is, to create the guild as soon as possible. :D

    Nope. In Guild Wars 2, the guild names are region wide. So you can't have two guilds with the same name in the same region (for example EU), even if they are in separate shards/servers.

    The guilds who take the time to post recruitment threads and make up websites before a game comes out either already play in other games, or are serious about the coming game, and are quite ready to rush whatever content is required to snag their name. They're the same people who will be sitting there hours before the servers come up to grab their character names.

    ^This. Well this and it came up in conversation between us (myself and members from Enigma) and Anlath at Rezzed, the outcome of such is that there may be a way to reserve guild names a head of time. How this will work, when it will happen and if it will actually happen at all is all unknown at the moment!

    Personally I hope for a SW:TOR type guild reservation, allow you to reserve your name on a single server a few months before launch.

    This response made me lol. I assumed these guilds had very dedicated members, but you put it into perspective for me. I imagined that super serious guilds had some kind of magical powers beyond waiting for hours to ensure their guild name is not taken. ;)

    Thanks for the responses!

    Also, I think you forgot the "there are going to be a lot of Servers". so if the guild name isn't available in one server you can go to another fast, really fast. in the end the combo is "Name + Server" to be recognized in the first days of a MMO

    What does it take to get a guild founded in this game? I didn't think there was any information on this yet.

    I wonder if they plan on doing something similar to what Star Wars: The Old Republic did... they allowed pre-launch guilds. I forgot the requirements, but basically you set what type of server you wanted a guild to be on and they would automatically set that guild up on their when the founding "members" created characters.

    Remembers me of something. In one game there was this famous guild even before release and a genius rushed through headstart an took their guild name. He sold it for a few hundred Euros back to them.

    Well, if "the devs are listening" to this particular thread, I would be pleased to see pre-release guild creation. Hell, pre-release name reservation for characters would be nice too. It's fine to have a few days to find an alternative name, get things sorted and get over it, but on day one there are a lot of things I'd prefer to be doing!
