With the guild threads popping up it made me wonder what people look for in a guild and what motivates you to app before game start. Or if you holdout to join a guild after you have spent time in game. What motivates you to app before game launch? Do you try and fit in or look for an established perfect fit? Do you like being a guild founder and be in the mix of the decisions? Do you mind being in a large guild? Does size really matter(guild size)? Does being required to app bug you? If you holdout for looking to join a guild, do you start to consider things like raiding, raid times, guild size, guild needs (classes), “server times \ location”? PvP? My self, I had joined a guild pre game for SWTOR, it had fell apart day one. Things were getting rough on the forums and on vent. So I am more reluctant to join a guild early and want to app to a guild in game after deciding on what I am going to focus on. My wife and I would have to join together, we would look for a raiding guild, East Coast server that ended raiding at midnight. Preferably a raiding guild that was not over classed in our two classes so we can participate in progression as much as possible. Then if drama is low to zero and it feels like a good fit with the people we stay really involved.
