      I could believe it. Whether anybody like it or not, a person in this game can easily say whatever they want and can do whatever they want such as leading players into messy-dangerous situations who don't know any better. Of course its reportable and that player will probably get banned but investigations often stop there and by the time the report happens, it would already be too late.

      And now they want to allow organized "clans" under the name of guilds...doesn't sound like a good decision to me.

      these 3 groups or any group can easily organize with or without a guild. A good example would be wizard city protectors. their goal is to make sure no one uses bad language in the game and to report such people.

      guilds/clans can be toxic some will ask you to get on daily just to give gold to the bank or mats for crafting it really depends on the guild master and who they are friends with sometimes they will make bank and disband the guild and spilt the gold with there friends and make alts after that but thats all i've heard happen to others outside of wiz

      The day I have to join a guild just to play the game is the day I leave, this is an awful idea.

      Re: Woah did this actually happen??

      The second there's Guilds, the second there's more exclusivity. Stuff like "Special Guilds" or "Guilds with specific members and gifts and whatnot"... even something like Cults (I'm not even joking... like actual Cults of people with specific ideologies or non-w101 related plans) will become a thing. I can already see messages to Friendly players or players who don't know any better in the commons that are like "Gift me x packs" (or something from the Gift Shop) or do x activity or whatnot (hazing essentially) to get into a specific Guild and the sad reality is that players WILL actually do this.

      Guilds will essentially perpertuate more activities that will immoral.

      I'm just on board of a Central Guild because I know we're all good people here and would never do something like this, we would more than likely have fun with something like this. But honestly there is not going to be a lot of Guilds like that, there are more likely going to be more exploitive Guilds that are no good to the community at large even in a game like Wizard101, the extent that this game is different from "Guilds" in real life is smaller than we all think.

      If I see something like a "White Supremacy" Guild going around, I don't even know what would happen after that. I don't see a lot of racism in the spiral, nobody I know really care player race, but the more mechanisms there is to perpetuate differences like that such as Guilds, the more apparent it will be.

      Again, Ki is running a thin line here but this is all assumptions. I don't think its fair to Ki either if this is what we think after a simple announcement, we need to see what they're up to before we get ahead of ourselves.

      again those things can exist without a guild. When i first started playing or relatively started as it was a 6months in (out of my 11 yrs)I did belong to a one guild or unoffical one. and i knew of certain other guilds. One member was curious as to where everyone was from. Like he didn't ask personal detailed info on snail addys as such so i let it go. It was just that after a certain point everyone just drifted away. Another "guild" i wasn't part of was actually with one guy belonged to when i was doing the water works runs. They wanted him to leave in mid run to help them. So he was mass reported by the guild because he wouldn't come to them in a drop of a hatpin. So KI would need to make rules about not abusing other members.

      I can already see messages to Friendly players or players who don't know any better in the commons that are like "Gift me x packs" (or something from the Gift Shop) or do x activity or whatnot (hazing essentially) to get into a specific Guild and the sad reality is that players WILL actually do this.
      again KI would need to make rules of improper use of guilds and ban such members or have the power to dissolve it.

      Guilds will essentially perpertuate more activities that will immoral.
      it's a double edged sword. I will agree to this but will also perpetrate more activities that are morral.
      If I see something like a "White Supremacy" Guild going around, I don't even know what would happen after that. I don't see a lot of racism in the spiral, nobody I know really care player race, but the more mechanisms there is to perpetuate differences like that such as Guilds, the more apparent it will be.
      Racism i did see early in the game. again report buttons.

      Again, Ki is running a thin line here but this is all assumptions. I don't think its fair to Ki either if this is what we think after a simple announcement, we need to see what they're up to before we get ahead of ourselves.
      agreed. but this is just talk and right now no harm in that.

      Except they keep talking about more exclusive thing only guild members will get In my 12 years of experience in this game I would posit more than half the players are solo players, I never see people even using adventure groups, but KI has the actual data, lets hope it was based on facts and not assumption.

      Sounds like a way to just widen the gap between the have and have nots imo.

      The Wizard City Protectors of which I was and technically still am a member, was just for the purpose of stopping as much of the foul language as possible. Unfortunately, we did have a few members that could not follow the TOS either and they were either asked to leave the group of the group leader could remove them. As for the group still being active, NO. When KI implemented the Hall Monitors, we were told to stop. The person who is still listed as group leader, as far as I know, no longer plays except when new content is added. Otherwise, many of them don't play anymore. I don't have the authority to completely disband the group.

      The "exclusivity" of items as what happened with the Participation Trophies is more of what concerns me. NO, I will not join any guild or clan that is has that sort of temperament. Not only is that not right, but it isn't fair to players who choose not to join any guild.

      I think you may be right about the solo players. I basically am one and have been for many years now even though I dual box or run my newest wizard lvl 30 ice with my grandson.

      I have played since January 2009, 13 years and there has already been too much of the "exclusivity" even though most of it has been low key, it is getting more and more after each new update.

      Also, I will not tolerate any player who is attempting to coerce a younger player into giving any items to the guild or any personal information.
