- Raise the price
- Keep it the same
As of right now there are over 30,000 guilds on Gems. Starting a guild costs just 25,000 gold. At 25K even a noob who’s played for an hour can start a guild. The problem right now is every day you hear on the global chat another person asking to join a guild where people are active or looking for a guild where people contribute. There are so many dud guilds out there where people have started them and then quit yet the guild trudges on with no player support.
I suggest it’s high time to raise the bar on starting a new guild. I suggest we bump it to 1 million gold. Just high enough to keep it out of the reach of newer players. This will do several things for the game.
Creates competition for people getting into higher guilds
Forces newer players to joing existing guilds
Will help participation in Guild Wars
Will decrease the learning curve / less chance of losing players
As of right now you start a new account and with as little as $10 start a new guild without knowing how to play the game futher bloating the amount of guilds out there the new prosepective members will see.
edited: Changed poll to be open for all. I only play on PS4 but from what I am hearing it sounds as this is a problem for everyone else too.
