For most of us, joining a good guild or clan is the key to fun, immersion and success in gaming.

Please share your fondest guild or clan memory from any game!


Mine is simply the fact that I have been part of the same gaming guild for well over 20 years. It has been a great ride, and my best friends arose out of the relationships we formed way back in the 90s. We've played a lot of games together, met every year in a huge rental house in various locations.
There is absolutely no price that one can place on the friendships and mutual support we've offered each other as we variously grew up, graduated, had kids, grew older, had to say goodbye to beloved elders among us... it's the family I chose, as important as the family I was born to.

I could list a hundred fantastic individual memories from our guild adventures, but we'd really like to hear YOURS!

I used to play Runes of Magic where I was in a public guild together with my dad and brothers. Have good memories about that. Me and my brother would need to do a quest, and someone "random" from the guild would help and guide us.

Eventually I stopped playing RoM, and so did my dad and 1 brother, the other one still plays it occasionally.

Then this is not really guilds, but on Steam I've been friends with some people well over 5 years now. Met them during a game of Dota. Especially with games like that I feel like it's pretty hard to form actual friends that last. I met with 3 of them in a weekend when I originally was going to meet up in Belgium (I'm Dutch) with someone, 2 English guys came over with the bus, they planned their trips 3 weeks beforehand :D . I'll never forget that they were texting 4 days later that they still weren't back in England because all French ports were closed because of strikes.

Now we don't play that much with each other anymore, but we still talk, and we occasinoally play other games (alot of Dota2 players only play Dota2 so it's special :D ).

Running a small guild in Dark Ages of Camelot called Lords of Camelot. We had about 12 members so not a full sized guild, but enough to go into Realm war as a small mercenary group and capture a keep every so often. Was a good amount of fun without being too serious on the guild politics that always ruined it for me in games like Everquest.

I used to be in a moderately sized Dutch guild back in Vanilla WoW and one time a bunch of us went to one of the guildmembers house and we held a BBQ together, which was really nice.

There's actually another one. Again not a guild, but a tribe from an online browsergame (Tribal Wars).

Tribal Wars is / was the kind of a game where worlds you played on count take years to finish and win, so a lot of tribes would play together for several years. I was in one that in it's final state played together for 3 or 4 years. At that time I was pretty insecure, but at some point one of the guys in the tribe got injured and was sitting at home getting really bored. I offered to come to him and have a few beers, he accepted.

After that they started organizing a meeting from both Dutch and Belgian people from that tribe. I felt like they wouldn't want me to go (I'm boring or something), but the guy I met before said that he didn't care about what I said, I was coming :D .So 4 of us Dutchies met up at a train station in a town, and from there took the car to Belgium, where we hang out, and in the evening some Belgians joined there and we had a fun time at a bar.

My best memory has to be the one where I managed to wipe a Karazhan raid in WoW TWO times!:) The first time we were going up some stairs and our guild master explicitly told us to be very, very careful not to aggroing any of the ghosts. You see, the problem with those particularly stairs was that they were quite narrow (at least for me) and I managed to fall down and while doing so, aggroing just about everything. Well, we all died pretty much after that.

The second time was actually at the same exact spot. When I fell down, it took me a little time to inform the raid about my mistake. I was so ashamed. When I finally told them that there might be a couple of ghosts after us again they all laughed and toke it quite well. We did manage to finish the raid and I did not get kicked out of the guild
