      -[Poll]- Forming wizard groups

      Greetings! I was wondering; would you like be able to form ''clans'' of sorts?
      E.G: ''Knights who say ni'' / ''Spiral Shadows''.

      I would like to see this feature implemented, as it would greatly boost this games popularity, I predict.

      Sincerely Yours,

      Nobility.
      Ponponpon!

      I agree. It's a feature that really needs to be added. Would love to make/join some PvP guilds.

      Re: -[Poll]- Forming wizard groups

      KI has already given a response to this suggestion years ago: they do not plan to bring any clan system to the game as it would lose its family-friendly environment. I've seen so many clans in my wizarding career to know why it would be a bad idea to create a clan/guild system: everyone will be hostile to one another, there will be plenty of profanity and colorful descriptions of fighting during "wars", and it would encourage players to create clans for the purpose of attacking people of specific demographic groups.

      I think we are better off having clans/guilds formed in Central. It's safer, easier to organize, and the forum rules keep the conflicts and bad behavior under control.

      I would say this is a valid point, except all of the above things are already done in game. There are already pretty much 'guilds' of sorts in the game and adding a tag probably wouldn't do much to change things. I doubt people would see a severe increase in the amount of profanity or bullying just because a wizard clan has a tag now. I would say that people may feel excluded because some clans might not want any more wizards in them etc, but there is already exclusion. With Darkmoor I doubt anybody will take a menu chat. I know I wouldn't. The way the game is going now it seems to be getting geared more towards adults anyways. If Darkmoor is really meant for 12 year olds barely capable of communication because of chat restrictions, I can't even imagine what KI thinks an adult challenge would be. Basically, while I think your points are valid, I feel as though all of that already happens in game and I don't know how much a guild/clan tag will change that. Possibly it would make it more obvious, so maybe not having guilds is a good idea but I for one would love to see something like that implemented.

      Maybe it would be a good idea IF: They could more easily track the people who constantly use profanity and subject them to swifter penalties that way

      Re: -[Poll]- Forming wizard groups

      If you've ever paid a visit to the Death Tower in realm Scarecrow, you can see plenty of wizard formed clans there. And believe me, none of them are pretty. If often includes profanity, rudeness, and other violations of the ToU.

      I don't think this idea would work out very well, sadly. I think we're better off having clans/groups on Central, since as another poster mentioned, the forum rules are very similar to the ToU and can prevent drama/profanity/rudeness/etc, or else they risk getting in trouble with the clan leader or from the mods here at Central themselves.

      This idea has been suggested before many times, and I just can't see this working properly. And neither can Kingsisle, judging from their past responses about having clans added to the game.
      Thank you to Mad Hatter, Camille and aquatiger975 for the graphics.

      No, too elitist. To tell the truth, despite what they have said in the past, I won't be surprised if KI does implement it. They hate solo players so much, seem to want to force people into teams, etc. If they ever make belonging to one mandatory...

      Well, I was going to say I'm out of here but my two accounts will just form their own.

      Game is in critical danger.

      Oh my, it does seem that the community seems to be sharply divided on this matter.
      On one hand, there are people who strictly oppose this idea; and on the other people who support this idea.
      An interesting input indeed.

      Re: -[Poll]- Forming wizard groups

      In my opinion, as soon as you allow people to divide into "us" vs. "them" you lose the family-friendly atmosphere that KI originally intended for the game. It was meant to be inclusive rather than separatist.

      There are many other MMORPG's for those who wish to participate in the clan or guild environment.
