I have had a read through alot of the recruitment messages and LFG messages on the forums and i keep asking myself the same question. When is the right time to start looking for a guild or begin recruitment? There is alot that goes into this as a decision so i though i would ask the general question to see what other though about it? My immediate reaction to this is that if you start early then you are potentially signing up people that you have no idea what they are like as a gamer. I guess this is the mass recruitment method by which you recruit everyone and then kick the rubbish ones out of the raiding groups later that dont cut the mustard. However if you wait till the game starts and you are half way through leveling you may not get the member base to get into the larger raiding groups. This in itself is a pain cause if you are not raiding then people dont want to join ur guild as they will not get what they want from it in turn you get a vicious circle till you potential demise.. Ohh it is all very difficult stuff and your thoughts would be appreciated. Have fun!!
