Slow news day? Why 3 different updates for the same game when all of this could have been done in one large update note?

Slow day at work?
Scraping the bottom of the comments-barrel?

So, three articles (as opposed to one) is an outrage? You're offended beyond all known extremes because of it? You know for a fact that all three came in to Massively at the same time? You have a better sense of posting articles on Massively, than Massively themselves do?

Good lord. Haven't you got something (anything) better to do? :-o

Not sure how my comment shows "outrage" or "offense beyond all extremes"

Take a break sparky I think the web is getting to your sense of reality.

I've never understood the need for the popularity contest that goes by the name of "guild".
In grade-school we're taught to not judge people we know nothing about.
In general we can probably agree that being elitist is rather uncool.
In high school we tend to frown upon and find distaste for cliques.

So why do we do it in MMO's?

Why can't people just form groups based on who is available?
If someone can't play their character well, then put them on a black-list. Problem solved. Why ruin the potential to find excellent players, by refusing to party outside one's own guild?

Why force people to be pigeon-holed and to run the gauntlet of guild application, approval, ego-tripping, loot rules, and o-so-much drama?
I just don't get it.

Maybe it's just as simple as wanting to play with your friends, as an alternative to the sprawling spiderweb of interconnected friends list.

A guild is what you make of it. Every guild in every game I've spent any real length of time was a collection of friends and friends of friends. A guild is only like what you describe if people make it that way.

This is great news. As impressed as I am with Free Realms, my major complaint is that it's 100% soloable, and there's no real incentive to be social. Introducing guilds will go a long way to help that.
