WoW Editorial - When Is It Okay to Switch Guilds?

Posted Tue, Sep 04, 2007 by Aelryn

The answer: Every time you get too far into the negative in a zero-sum system.

This week's World of Warcraft editorial is about a topic that many players either struggle with at some emotional level or take far too casually-- guild switching. While not getting too teary over the changing of guilds, it is something that one should take very seriously and not enter into lightly.

Behavioral / Political Differences – This is a big one for me, I have
joined a few guilds with characters only to find out that guild chat is
full of swearing, trash talking, degrading people because of where they
live, religion, politics or some other crazy thing. To me, I play the
game to get away from real life concerns and childish behavior, not to
put up with it in yet another location. If the guild won’t address these
players, its time to leave.
