Let me preface this by saying that I’m relatively content with the guild I’m in at the moment. However, that doesn’t mean I’m not willing to jump ship if I find what I’m looking for.
I understand that Gems of War’s guild system (and the style of the game itself) isn’t very conducive to social play. In the past, I’ve been part of high-tier guilds in other games (specifically MMOs.) I was the GM of several guilds over the course of three to four years in Order & Chaos. As anyone who’s played that game knows, it’s not exactly known for its robust guild options, especially in the six months after release when there were no dungeons, no PvP arenas, and a majority of PvP was ganking noobs. Still, we managed to make the social aspect of the game fun thanks to a vibrant community and an active forum base, in spite of its bare-bones nature. Every major guild had an active teamspeak server, formal tournaments were announced on forums, and short story contests were held (not stories based on the lore of the game, but stories about actual players, guilds, and their rivalries and personality quirks.) This made a relatively mundane game so much fun to play!
So my question is: Are their any top 100 guilds (PC/mobile) with real personality? Guilds with active Facebook groups, TS servers (a stretch for Gems, I know,) events, trolls, strong hatred for other guilds, strange practices, an interest in community-building, etc.? If such a guild exists in Gems, I’d love know about it. Real online community entices me so.
In case you’re wondering, I’m level 82 (my overall level took a hit when I went through a long treasure map phase,) all kingdoms between level 5 and 6, active for 3-6 hours 4-5 days a week, far too generous with task donations, have only recently started PvP on a regular basis, and am primarily using Zaejin teams until future updates nerf the living **** out of them.
Let’s make Gems more engaging. Otherwise, we might as well go play [a certain game that involves matching pieces of candy, bright colors, and thousands of unwanted notifications.]
Brackets because I’m too lazy to check the forum’s ToS to clarify whether or not mentioning other games is taboo.
