The Guild Leader Episode #18
I got this question the other day from a guild leader asking, how do you make your guild popular on the game servers? I had to think about it, this is hard to get without a lot of effort. So, before answering I decided I would write about it here to explain a little farther.
Becoming a Popular Guild
Well there isn’t an easy answer to this, so let me jump right into it. Becoming popular is a job that everyone in the guild has to take serious. Being popular is almost like a privilege that is given by players on a server. Gaining this is something all guild should strive for.
Ways to gain popularity
The Best: The easy answer is you must have one of the best guilds on the server. What does that mean? Well, being the best is a lot of stuff all rolled into one.
Best in PVP combat, Best at supporting members, best knowledge in game play, best raid teams, best members overall, I could on and on all day yada, yada.
As the guild leader you should strive to make every decision you make and everything you do for your guild that you try to do your best. Pretty simple huh! Being the best Guild Leader doesn’t hurt either.
If your guild is the best at something you are guaranteed to be more popular on your server.
Lifespan: Your guild will become more popular over time as you network by working with other players/guilds throughout the server. This really can only be gained over time.
Epic Battles: If you can complete or lead an epic battle in game your popularity will soar on the server. Sometime these battle drop some special item, people will want to see this item this also lead to more interest into your guild.
Display Epic Items: Displaying items that you gained in battle so that everyone on the server can see them as your achievements.
Defending your land: If your guild owns some land in game, make you always protect and defend it from any attacking forces. Holding on to this land will gain your popularity, sometimes even with opposing forces.
Attacking others land: Just as defending your land is a great way to gain popularity, so is attack your enemies land will do the same for your allies.
Alliances: Forming alliances with other guilds can help a lot with gain popularity. Leaving alliances can have a negative effect.
Events: Holding and staging major events on your server is a good way to gain some popularity. I would try something like have a server wide party, PVP contest, parades, or whatever else you can stage at in and your guild headquarters. This is an easy way to gain popularity and it will be a lot of fun for your members.
There is no easy way to gain popularity as the guild leader the future is up to you., by using some of the ideas I have outlined I hope you have the greatest successes in your guild leadership.
