Sadly I haven't been part of a guild so far that has this kind of closeness, though I do have a few friends I get along with through WoW now, and RealID has helped me keep in touch.Biggest problem I think is online paranoia and younger members. Most guilds I've been in don't like sharing personal information, or there's no maturity limit on recruitment. If you're a group of adults who have the means to meet up each year without parental permission, or you're not afraid of letting people know stuff about your personal life (work, marriage, school, etc) then it's easier to have closeness like this.Alas, I haven't had the experience yet which makes me sad, but at the same time I'm one of those people who can't spare time/money to go to Blizzcon lol

My guild is in the opposite position. We're all adults, most married or in a relationship, and many who have spouses or significant others who also play. The problem is that adult responsibilities - jobs, children, et cetera - prevent us from being able to get together in an organized fashion.There have been a few "hey, I'll be in your town on business, let's get a drink!" or "why don't you come crash on our couch for a few days and we'll hang out!" meetups, but nothing with more than a handful of guildies who just happen to be in the same place at the same time.
