Any guild don’t want to get dropped, ought to fight their battles in the current guild war. Simple, easy, awesome.
As far as registering for a GW, it was my intent to verify that as the lowest rank, I was able to do so at reset. Unfortunately, I also had an alt logged in at the time. So while it was my main that was active, and took a screenshot, I do not know that if because my alt was also logged in, I somehow obtained its super powers and was therefore able to register my guild simply by being online.
It’s still a bug in my opinion. Not as big a problem as having dead guilds posting zeroes in GW, but perhaps proof that not all guilds “actively register to participate” in GW as claimed by the devs.
A guild that posts a zero ought to drop a significant amount of brackets, no matter what the reason. We had a Level 1400+ log in Thursday just to tell us he didn’t feel like fighting, and that we could kick him if we wanted. We waited til after reset, just in case he felt like changing his mind.
