Guilds and groups spawning from website communities is nothing new, and here at Massively we've created a number of groups for our readers to join. To start with, there's the Massively Mob Steam group
that readers can join to get updates on events. Long-time writer and Community Manager Rubi Bayer also runs the Massively Overpowered
guild in Guild Wars
and the OnedAwesome
guild in Dungeons and Dragons Online
. For our Choose My Adventure
series, fans even set up groups for Fallen Earth
and Lord of the Rings Online
Most recently, we started the Massively Mob corporation
in EVE Online
, a small group intent on giving newer EVE
players a helping hand and older players a group to mentor. Almost 100 readers have joined so far, and a flood of players have been hanging out in the official "Massively" channel to lend a hand.
A good guild or group can make an MMO much more enjoyable than going it alone. A Massively guild comes with the added advantage of playing with people who write guides and articles on your favourite MMO, not to mention the inevitable events and articles about the guild's in-game shenanigans. Some of the Massively crew have been considering starting more groups in popular MMOs, including a potential new Lord of the Rings Online
kinship if there's enough interest. Would you like to see a Massively guild or group in your favourite MMO, and would you join one if it started up?
Every morning, the Massively bloggers probe the minds of their readers with deep, thought-provoking questions about that most serious of topics: massively online gaming. We crave your opinions, so grab your caffeinated beverage of choice and chime in on today's Daily Grind!
