Default People Leaving and Alliance

Recently a bunch of our more active, non-theoryland guild members left us to form another guild. This had partly something to do with the semi-deadness of our guild, and our current lack of alliance.

Personally, I want to stay active in Guild Wars, and I think being part of an alliance is an important part of that, especially since it increases the available pool of people to play with.

What do you think of possibly trying to enter into an alliance with the new guild our former guildmates have formed? Since they would be the more active guild (probably recruiting and such) I'm betting they would want to be alliance leaders, but I don't particularly care about that, and in fact it seems reasonable to me. Means we don't have to worry about getting new guilds, and the people who don't want to associate with the alliance don't have to.

I really like our guild and I don't want to see it degrade into 4 or 5 active people from here, while everyone else we've met leaves and is never heard from again.

but it's never been just 4 or 5 active people.
at least in the past 2 years I've been playing, we've always had a core of people who were active a lot, and still are now, and then the newcomers, who are maybe active for a while, then leave, or die away..
I'm always for alliances with other decent players though, because you're right, it does give you more people to play with.

but I never minded the way it was before we formed that alliance and had a surge of new people coming in, and I don't mind it the way it is now.

Default And I'm not sure how you're defining 'active'

I think there may have been a need for more PvP amongst those who left than our guild is interested in.

Well, now that they give faction points for vanquishing, Bryan and I will probably be online more often. At least as long as the laptop holds out. It's developed an no-pixel line down the middle.

Meanwhile, I'm slogging through Mass Effect on Insanity.

the core of us will never stop playing I don't think, regardless if we take a break or not. It really does seem to be the new people that die out...Ah well...

I'm not so sure I'd play with some of those who left at this point...aren't we joining that other alliance anyways?

Yeah, I have written off at least two of those that left. To be honest, I liked them, but I am sick and tired of the coming and going. I also found one in particular that became discontented very easily if a group didn't do what he wanted to as soon as he wanted to do it.

I can definately understand why you would feel that way. If it's any consolidation, Cam and I still very much consider ourselves part of the HotH guild. We have just got very little interest in GW at the moment, mostly because Runes of Magic (RoM) feels our PVE needs better. But maybe when GW2 comes out, we will be ready to try again.

He sat there with his ankles crossed and one arm hanging over the heavy arm of the throne, yet he seemed ready to explode into violence. Interestingly, though his black coat was embroidered with blue-and-gold dragons that twined around the sleeves from elbows to cuffs, he did not wear the collar pins.

It's consoLATION. If it was consolidation, we'd be joining both your guild and ours. XP

Well, if they don't come out with GW2 soon, they're gonna start losing players to WoW again.
