What's with this hypocrisy concerning guild poaching?Why would it be a unethical, scummy and low move?Most of you who join a guild never ever met your guild"mates". In my eyes they ain't even your "friends" as you like to call them.You don't really know them. All you do know is maybe, at most, their name, age, occupation and relationship status. And maybe where they live.Does that mean they are your "friends"?I gotta say, young folks have a very strange definition of what a friend means.When I join a guild, I don't know anybody, they ain't my friends, they are somebody I just know. Over the years I may know some of them more than the others, but are they my friends? No, I don't think so. As long as I don't go deeper into relationship with them, they can't be considered my friends. Just somebody I know, I play with, I have fun with. An acquaintance would be the best description!And even IF the poached person is my true friend, what do I care if he/she's been poached? I still see him/her in RL, I still meet with him/her in RL, I still go out with him/her and and have fun in RL. What does it matter?Seem to me, that a majority of the people just take the game way, way too serious.

Pretty much every guild past Kara is guilty, to lesser and greater extents, of poaching players from other guilds. People only gripe about it when some of the players they rely on are "poached", causing difficulty in guild progression.
