Out of the blue Guild Invite?
Does it bother you when you get asked to join a guild without ever being approached a member just an out of the blue message on screen. I’m sure a few of you have got something like this in game. “Angus has invited you to the guild “Spoons of Power”.
Why is it that when I play a new game for writing an article or a game review I always get these messages without even a “Hello how are you doing”? Before popping the question at least let me see who you are, most of the time nope. I really hate to see this style of recruiting going on.
I think to myself why is this going on? As a guild leader myself for a couple games, I don’t spend enough time in other games to join guilds, but why is it that some guilds use this technique to get new members? If this works, how long will these members sticks around? My guess is not long.
Without trying to sound like a guild leader from my column “The Guild Leader” here. Guild recruiting should be done in such a way that you pick the best candidates to join your guild. Without screening people your guild will never be successful and you member turn around will be huge. Meaning people will come and go at random.
So if you one the people using this technique to recruit new members, why don’t you get to know them a little better first before popping the question?
So today I ask why do I get guild invites out of the blue?
