Is bigger better?
As Cata looms closer and closer, more information is being released. Is this a good thing?
What do we have to look foward to? It like knowing what you are getting for Christmas in advance. For some people they are avoiding reading info, others are eagerly absorbing information as it comes out (I know I love more info, I hate being in the dark!)
Either way there was pros and cons to either way.
Staying in the dark
1.) You are surprised and have that feeling of awe and wonder.
2.) Giddy as a school girl when you find out something new.
3.) Excited about learing everything yourself, self fullfillment.
1.) You are not able to hit the ground running.
2.) People may wonder why you do not know where everything is.
Reading all info out there
1.) Once Cata is one out can hit the ground running!
2.) Can be a source of info for guildees who may have not been keeping up.
3.) You know what to expect and what to do.
1.) Lessened feeling of surprise.
What do you prefer, do you prefer too be in the dark and surprised when it arrives? Or are you like me? gimme info NAO!!! NOMNOMNOM! Or maybe you only read what you want to read and avoid lore spoilers?
Guild Levels…what do you think?
Overall I think it is a good idea, and is a good way to perhaps promote guilds as the social/organizational unit in MMO’s.
However, like with any good idea, there is some glaring issues.
How exactly is guild experience earned? Per Blizzard, doing any activity etc will allow for it. A very generic answer. Is there a cap per hour? Does one activity earn more experience over another?
Another thing is appears Blizzard is no longer just counting the top 20 contributers, appears all guild members will count toward guild xp.
Is this a good idea? That really does favor LARGE guilds, does Blizzard only want big super zerg guilds out there only?
Many of the really good rewards and achievements appear to be geared toward larger guilds.
Reach Guild Level 25? that will take a long time….
Catch 100,000 fish – this may or may not take a while.
Kill 50,000 critters?
I remember in Warhammer: Online there were guild levels and the larger your guild was, the faster your guild leveled. This promoted huge zerg guilds rather then guilds who could work together in my opinion.
Blizzard, do you really just want a few huge guilds out there??
