Since the formation of our baby guild I peeked at the number of guilds (at least were the list started for us). We started at over 22,000. Many of these guilds had 0 members in them, or just 1. Many of them had under 100 trophies etc. GoW really should look into pruning dead or inactive guilds after x amount of months. Some might say ‘but then Guild Wars might be tougher because we have to face actual guilds that are active’. As inactive guilds tend to still get registered for Guild Wars just to satisfy the pool I figure. Only by 6,000-7,000 has the baby guild run into more active guilds. The 15,000+ before that were just beyond dead. So it makes me wonder just how many are like this across all platforms. That could then mean there are over 60,000+ (guessing of course) dead or almost dead guilds.
Sorry for the bit of ranting now on to some ideas there.
A guild must :
- Have x amount of members log in every x month(s).
- Must have x amount of trophies earned every x month(s) * the number of members.
The system will flag it for deletion and put a mark on the guild.
- A flagged guild can simply click on the in-game flag to enable them as active again.
If the system flags the same guild again for deletion in x month(s). Then a guild wanting to keep active must make :
- x amount of trophies in x month(s) * x month(s), to ensure they won’t drop inactive again.
The guild is deleted, and all members of it are made homeless.
Really feel something to prune out these guilds should exist. Because it will just keep adding and adding and adding, until its a lot of cockroaches!
