Guild Leader Episode # 53
The Guild Leader that you don’t want!
If you have read any of the episodes of the Guild leader than you already know that most of the time we try to show how to be a better guild leader, today I thought it would be fun to look at some of the thing that bad guild leaders are made of and what not to be as a guild leader.
Bad Guild Leaders
The drunk or high Guild Leader
Have you ever been in an inebriated or high guild? At times this can be fun, but if you ever wanted to accomplish anything it can be a challenge.
I have had a few too many beers and continued to play a game, but when something like this happens you must be smart enough to zip your lips and let the decisions making fall down to one of your officers.
The Too Quick to Make Judgment Guild Leader
As a guild leader you need to be able to make judgments without hesitation, but not without thinking before acting. Having a guild leader that makes judgment without thinking can tip the boat over as fast and the guild will suffer as a whole.
Guild leaders needs to have a cool head and be able to distinguish right from wrong, but still able to see things in many views of your members.
The Power Hungry Guild Leader
Have you ever seen power go to someone’s head well if you have ever seen this in a guild leader you know it is not good. A power hungry guild leader is not always the best at being a team player or looking out for their members like they should be.
Power hungry guild leader’s will clash with members over the smallest issues and have their own agenda, without worrying about the issues of others.
Stuck in Role Play Guild Leader
Have you ever seen a guild leader that never drops out of character? Don’t get me wrong role play is fun, but at times you need to stop the fantasy and get down to business. There are times for being in character and then there are time when you should understand that people need to just hear the voice of reasoning with the role play over the top of it.
We play games to forget our boring regular life is, well some of us do anyway!
