Recently my guild went through a rather large bout of drama when a member/raider was fired due to many different reasons, and was removed from the guild. When I really started thinking about it there are 3 major things you shouldn’t do when either asked to leave a guild, or when you leave a guild on your own.
Trash Your Former Guild
This is by and far the WORST thing you could possibly do, because in the end you’re only going to make yourself look like a childish ass.
Even if you leave the guild because it was a horrible place that abused all their members, and never progressed you should still NEVER trash talk your former guild. No one will look at the argument and think, “Thank God someone warned me about <insert guild name here>, I was thinking about joining!”
It’ll go more along the line of “Who the <expletive> is this <expletive>, and why is he/she talking?” You’ll then be subjected to trolls.
More over if you were kicked out of a guild for being a/an <expletive> then your complaining will make you seem like even more of a/an <expletive>.
Join The Next Guild To Offer You A Spot
If you left a guild or were kicked out, you should probably take a moment to be “single”. Unless of course you left to join another guild, at which point you can skip this section.
Staying “single” gives you the time to look for a new guild that really fits who and what you are looking for, since clearly the previous was not.
Which these days is easier than ever since you have access to a whole list of guilds that are advertising openings.
Try To Push Your Old Guilds Rules
Ok so you’ve not trashed your old guild, you’ve stayed single for long enough to find a new guild, what now?
Well I can tell you what not to do:
- Don’t be too forward, it can be seen as annoying and pushy.
- Don’t try to be promoted right away, not cool.
- Don’t try to shove your old guild down your new guilds throat. Don’t talk about the rules, the other people, the events/raids they’ve done. It makes you seem like you don’t like your new guild as much as your old guild.
So guys please, I know that things happen, and members get kicked out or leave guilds, but try to be civil about it.
