Yes, I know there's already a thread for this, but it's old and filled with things that no-one will bother to read through
I'm a guild member of the guild Roses of Dawn, started out as a Diablo 2 clan a good five years ago. We were in the ULGD, we were a hugely well-known guild in Dark Age of Camelot, the majority of the hib/prd guild officers and members in DAoC went on to join us in Star Wars Galaxies, and now we're one of the biggest guilds on the Europe servers in WoW. We are a very nice guild. We have a sponsored application process and very strict rules about swearing and niceness and stuff. Our gulid motto is For Fun and Friendship. our time in WoW is looking likely to be coming to an end soon and Guild Wars is looking to be the next likely candidate. </background>
RoD is run by my stepmum, and my dad is an officer. This means, that whilst I get automatic membership to Roses, I also have no opportunity to *not* be in Roses. I love my dad dearly, and Roses is a great guild with a lovely bunch of people, but I find my stepmum a little hard to deal with sometimes. I am also a little fed up of (due to the fact I can't play online games at mum's and I'm only at dad's once a fortnight atm), being constantly treated like a noob by the people who only joined Roses in WoW, and having my dad and stepmum know more people then me and more about the games than me. It basically means that all of the decent people on our server treat me like a kind, even though I'm often older than them, just because I'm Astrakhan's daughter and Mymosa's stepdaughter and they play with "M and A" all the time.
I have just bought Guild Wars, having tested it on my dad's account and loved it, and I'm thinking I'd quite like to move on slightly before they do and see about maybe not being in Roses this time (And not having my stepmother constantly looking over my shoulder). I'm going to Uni, so I should be able to get a reasonable amount of playtime in. What happened to the Matazone guild? Did it die? And if so, are there any decent guilds worth joining on the European servers? I'm not averse to being unguilded, but it is kinda nice to have friends and things so you're not constantly in dodgy pickup groups. I don't play PvP.
